I spent a good chunk of the evening on Friday, August 19th waiting in line after work to get into Half Acre Beer Company. Why? That day saw the release of Galactic Double Daisy Cutter, a rarity from Half Acre. From the Half Acre blog:

Uber-hazy and jam packed with the sticky, Galaxy hops, this beer isn't for the faint of heart. As if pulled from the core of a distant, inhospitable planet, The Galactic Double Daisy is juicy and dank, rough and tumble and beautifully ugly. Strap on your boots and pull down some of the ooze, Galactic Double Daisy is here.


   And then the beer sold out that night, much earlier than Half Acre expected. Was it worth it? Absolutely. This beer is awesome.

   The South Loop Tasting Room - our full-service bar located inside the South Loop Binny's - got a keg of Galactic Double Daisy Cutter. It is probably one of the last kegs of the stuff in Chicago. We are going to tap this keg next Wednesday, October 26th. Details:


Wednesday, October 26, 6-8p
in the South Loop
Call 312.768.4400 for more info
RSVP Required


   This is amazing beer. This event will fill up quickly. RSVP right now.

   Along with the Galactic Double Daisy Cutter, we are also tapping a couple of other Half Acre favorites, including Daisy Cutter and Captain Fantasy, a summer-release saison made with Sorachi Ace hops and pear puree.


UPDATE 10/22/2011: We added a keg of recent Half Acre release Tasty Waves Pale Ale. This one tastes like summer in a bottle. See you at the tasting!
