Now onto the details: 

When: Sunday February 12th, 2017 from 2pm to 5pm at the station or if held
at 3rd rock brewery in Trenton times may change.

Where: Either at 3rd Rock Brewery in Trenton or Fermentation Station, 216

What Style BJCP 22 (STRONG AMERICAN ALE) consisting of:

22A. Double IPA

22B. American Strong Ale

22C. American Barleywine

22D. Wheatwine


Here are the events planned: 

1) Sample, Discuss, and Educate:


What is a Double IPA (22A): Overall Impression: An intensely hoppy, fairly
strong pale ale without the big, rich, complex maltiness and residual
sweetness and body of an American barleywine. Strongly hopped, but clean,
dry, and lacking harshness. Drinkability is an important characteristic;
this should not be a heavy, sipping beer


What is American Strong Ale (22B): A strong, full-flavored American ale that
challenges and rewards the palate with full malty and hoppy flavors and
substantial bitterness. The flavors are bold but complementary, and are
stronger and richer than average-strength pale and amber American ales.


What is American Barleywine (22C): A well-hopped American interpretation of
the richest and strongest of the English ales. The hop character should be
evident throughout, but does not have to be unbalanced. The alcohol strength
and hop bitterness often combine to leave a very long finish.


What is Wheatwine (22D): A richly textured, high alcohol sipping beer with a
significant grainy, bready flavor and sleek body. The emphasis is first on
the bready, wheaty flavors with interesting complexity from malt, hops,
fruity yeast character and alcohol complexity


2) Details on Brewery TBD

3) Mention Upcoming Competitions & Events. 

Food pairing for the style is: Grilled meats, strong cheese. 

Look forward to seeing you all at the station or brewery!
