Thursday Tap - Yeastie Boys Rex Attitude

This Thursday, drop by Jimmy's No. 43 for a blast of peat smoke from Rex Attitude by New Zealand's Yeastie Boys.

According to the brewery:  "They said it couldn't be done, that it would be undrinkable, that we couldn't use more than 5% heavy peated malt in a beer. So we carefully considered their advice and went with 100% instead. Rex Attitude is inspired by French techno and the whisky of Scotland's west coast. Like the 'Auld Alliance' it combines a little Scottish rogue with a dose of French 'je ne sais quoi'. It is, as far as we know, the world's first beer made from 100% heavy peated distilling malt."

Intrigued?  This 7% peat-smoked strong golden ale will be tapped at 5pm, like all Thursday Taps. Jimmy's No. 43 is located at 43 E. 7th St.
