Now on Tap - Ursa Major

Last night we celebrated the annual release of Ursa Major, our tough-as-nails Russian Imperial Stout. This beer is always a customer favorite and last night's Ursa Major Fest was the first time we've brought the beer out in such style. From 5:00 - 8:00, on the shortest day of the year, guests were offered full pours for $5.50 complete with a commemorative glass, or for an extra $1.50 you could add an additional 9 oz. pour of either 2009 or 2008 vintages. The 2008 was aged on oak briefly, right after it was brewed, then keg-cellared for 2 years; the 2009 was bottled last year and kept in our icehouse until they were all sold out around 5:30 last night. For one night only we offered 30 oz. growlers of all three vintages so you could enjoy this beer at home. It was a great time celebrating a great beer with great people - Nightlife KC even showed up to take some pictures. We've still got some 2008 on tap, along with plenty of 2010, so come get warm with this bad-ass brew!
