Gubna come to the Sunday tap line up!! WHOA! 100 IBU's 10% abv

Greetings beer lovers,
What a week! Kate the Great tix came and went faster than a nude body on a "slip and slide"! Sorry to all those that were not able to procure tickets and to those who bought tickets and did not win.... but that is the chance behind a lottery. I bought 15 tickets and got skunked myself. Oh well, thems the breaks!
Anyway, we were down in DC visiting our daughter over the past weekend and missed out on all the excitement. I heard the Peeper went over well and this Sunday we have an equally great beer Gubna from Oskar Blues. Gubna is an Imperial IPA and here is the scoop on it from the folks at Oskar Blues: "Emphasizing that complexity of character can arise from simple elements, this ale is made with 3 malts and 1 hop. Its light amber color and slightly spicy malt character are derived from the use of German Dark Munich Malt and Rye Malt respectively. North American 2-row barley combines with the other grains to lay the foundation for the hop onslaught to come. Summit hops are used exclusively in the boil for bitterness, flavor and aroma but it doesn’t end there. Post-fermentation dry hopping allows the 10% ABV monstrosity to gently coax the citrus rind and grapefruit aroma to join the 100 IBUs already present. This beer will greet you with a pungent citrus blast, provide a spicy yet round middle and finish with a brisk, clean bitterness." Well, I don't know about you but I am excited already. Do stop in for a tulip of this monstrous elixir. Cheers! Todm


  1. When the heck did the Kate tickets go on sale?? We called and asked our server at the brewery and were told to watch the blog which we had been doing-regularly. We are locals that would have totally been in there buying tickets (and food and beer) had the information been updated.

    1. I got an email from the brewery. Got tweeted it. It was updated on the website before Saturday and I heard it was on Facebook (which I don't use so can't verify). I live in New York and new about it....information was clearly available.

  2. Hey, I see from the Facebook page that the Grand Cru is on - could someone say a few words about that? Is this a new one? Thanks...
