“So we took a couple of firkins,” Jules Suplicki, bar manager of The Old Toad explained in her cute English accent “And we mailed ’em up to Allagash. We had no idea what they’d put in them. They shipped them back filled with Curieux.”
“Cask-conditioned Allagash Curieux?” I asked, demonstrating my devastating logical abilities.
“Yeah. This is the first time that it will be availoable in Rochester on Cask.”
Jules was excited enough about this to print up a bunch of signs and make the tapping of the Allagash uber-beer a full fledged event. This Friday, January 11th, the two casks will be broached, and this Beer Advocate ‘A’ rated beer can be freely enjoyed by everyone who isn’t afraid to fill out a credit application.
I’m just saying… it won’t be cheap. but by the end of the night it’ll probably be gone.
