Ever since the announcement here two months ago that we are doing another “The Beer Is Good at Fiddler’s Hearth” craft beer party this summer, we’ve been working pretty hard at getting all of the pieces put in place. I just wanted to provide everyone with a reminder, and a few updates…
Where: Fiddler’s Hearth (Main Street, South Bend)
When: June 30th, 11am-11pm
Price: No ticket required to get in, pay for only what you order
We are working on a really unique and special tap list for the day, consisting of constantly rotating taps. In addition to the Founders KBS that was originally announced, we will have the FIRST EVER sale of Bare Hands beer outside of the brewery, with a firkin of ThaiP.A! This is one of their most popular beers, and the first firkin of it ever made.
Alongside the great beers from Bare Hands will be two special Four Horsemen beers (Porter & American Wheat), personally crafted by your favorite (I hope) South Bend beer blogger – me! The Porter is an intensely roasty beer with hints of chocolate and coffee, smoothed out with caramel and rich mahogany. On a lighter side is a citrusy and hoppy American Wheat brewed exclusively with the immensely popular Citra hops. Both the Porter and American Wheat are great examples of fun beers coming from my experience with Four Horsemen. Stephen, Sam, Ben and John have been so great to work with and I’m learning so much about the craft beer business!
So when I originally sat down with Sean and Jeremy of Fiddler’s Hearth, we all agreed that we wanted this event to be even BIGGER and BETTER than the already successful party back in November. So in addition to the ultra-limited Founders KBS and the specialty beers from Bare Hands, Four Horsemen, etc., we needed one more beer to really put this event over the top…
So without further ado, we would like to announce that an extremely rare keg of Black Note from Bell’s will be on tap at some point during the day! If you haven’t had the opportunity to try this highly sought after beer yet, you will not want to miss it!
So this is just a taste of what’s to come, and the very long final tap list will include specialty beers from such favorites as 3 Floyds, Greenbush, Founders, etc. This party is exactly four weeks away, so look for updates and more info as we get closer!
