The storms have cleared, the temps are down, and today is a great day for an Imperial. This week’s Thursday Tap™ is t’smisje Catherine the Great, a rare Belgian Imperial Stout. Aside from being brewed with seven different malts and four varieties of hops with a 10% ABV, this Great Imperial Stout has a NYC connection. Apparently the bottle label (we’re tapping, so no labels to view at the bar; the photo here will have to suffice) was designed by Brooklyn artist and beer hound, Bill Coleman (follow him on Twitter @maltydog). We’re happy to be tapping a great rare keg with local ties at 5 p.m. and while supplies last.
