Pubcast 187 – John’s Choice: Unlocking the Legend

TJ Hagen from Urban Legend Brewing in Westmont, has provided John’s Tavern with a cavalcade of brew samples, and John has called in the Brit and Yankee Pubcast to help him taste and select his next in-house beers. A great opportunity for us to run through some of the offerings from this suburban brewery, and find out some of the stories behind the beer names. Find out which ones we’d like to see on draft and in a bomber!

Our tasting list was:
1. Scylla’s Grasp – Mosaic Pale Ale – ABV- 5.2%, IBU- 45
2. The King’s Tree – Coffee Stout – ABV – 8.8%, IBU – 41.1
3. Udderly Utopia, Milk Stout – ABV 5.2%
4. Step On It Klaus! – German Weizenbock – ABV – 8%
5. Fain’s Sword – Scottish Wee Heavy – ABV – 9.4%
