Dogfish Head Tap Takover - May 21st
Who: Randall the Enamel Animal X3
What: Dogfish Head Tap Takover
When: Saturday May 21st, 12pm
Where: British Beer Company - Walpole, MA
Why: Why the hell not?
We're not sayin' that it's never been done, but we've never seen three Randall's hooked up at the same time in one place. Dogfish Head created Randall the Enamel Animal to infuse beer with the flavors of whatever gets put into this crazy contraption (hops, herbs, spices, fruit, etc.). At the Dogfish Head Tap Take-Over on May 21st at the British Beer Company in Walpole 13 different beers from the seminal Delaware brewer will be on draft. Three of those lines will be hooked up to different Randall's. Festina Peche will be filtered through fresh peaches, strawberries and kiwi. Pangea with fresh ginger. 90 Minute with Amarillo, Simcoe and Warrior hops. Other rarities on tap for the day include Robert Johnson's HellHound on My Ale and Johnny Cask. All the beers will be tapped by Noon and will stay on until they're kicked.
The day will also include free cheese and food pairings, live music by the Racky Thomas Band and kick the keg prizes all day.
The Walpole BBC is located at 85 Providence Highway. I consider it my "local" BBC, and was happy to watch the Bruins defeat the Canadians in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarter Finals there this year! This event is not to be missed!
