It has been a full two years since Firestone Walker debuted at Binny’s. They have had great success, thanks in part to things like being one of two breweries in the world they still employ primary fermentation in wood barrels (Marston’s). To commemorate being available in Chicago-land for two years, Firestone Walker has released three new to Illinois six-pack offerings:
DBA: An excellent choice if you are looking for a beer to session. This ESB is incredibly balanced with hints of vanilla and fruit. Binny’s Lincoln Park Beer Manager Adam Vavrick told us “DBA is literally my #1 favorite beer in the world.” DBA is a year round offering.
Pale 31: ”Pale 31 is an ode to our home California, the 31st state to be added to the union. Beer may not be associated with terroir the way wine is, but we believe that where we’re from impacts how our beers taste. This dry-hopped California Pale Ale represents the bold yet approachable spirit that embodies our state.” Pale 31 is a year round offering.
Velvet Merlin: “A decadent Oatmeal Stout brimming with cocoa and espresso aromas. This beer features a rich, dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor with a creamy mouth feel and wonderfully dry finish. The addition of U.S. grown fuggles hops contributes the perfect amount of bitterness to this exceptionally balanced beer.” Velvet Merlin is a seasonal offering.
All three of these new offerings are available at most Binny’s locations. To see if your local Binny’s has them in stock, give them a call or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
