Drink Floyd

Floyd the Barber, Count Floyd, Pink Floyd, Cliff Floyd… there are a lot of “Floyds” out there, but only one that specializes in locally brewed craft beer. Three Floyds Brewing Company in Munster, Indiana, is known for its way out-of-the-ordinary beers (with eye-popping bottles to match), and we’re giving you a chance to taste and explore their many styles with Three Floyds “Minister of Propaganda” Lincoln Anderson this Thursday, July 22, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. here at Just Grapes.

If that wasn’t enough, we’re making this a double-headline beer bonanza by showcasing the wild “I can’t believe they combined those ingredients” creations of Delaware’s legendary Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. Donn Bichsel Jr. of Dogfish Head will be on hand to guide the tasting, and answer questions like, “how did you know roasted chicory and St. John’s wort would taste great in the same stout?”

We don’t easily put aside the “Just Grapes” name for any non-wine event, so you know this is going to be a special night. Tickets for our Three Floyds & Dogfish Head Brewery Seminar are $25, and be sure to stop by beforehand to pick up some of these Three Floyds and Dogfish Head classics:

Three Floyds Alpha King Pale Ale, 6 pk. [$11.49]
A bold yet balanced American pale ale with caramel malt notes and an aggressive citrus hoppiness. This is Three Floyds’s Flagship beer.

Dogfish Head Festina Peche, 6 pk. [$9.99]
A refreshing neo-BerlinerWeisse fermented with honest-to-goodness peaches to (get this!) 4.5% abv! Because extreme beers don’t have to be extremely boozy! Available in 4-pack and draft during the sweaty months.

Three Floyds Gumballhead Wheat Ale, 6 pk. [$11.49]
A delicious summer seasonal brewed with Amarillo hops. An American wheat beer with a crisp citrus finish.

Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA, 4pk [$10.99]
Esquire magazine calls this 90 Minute IPA, “perhaps the best IPA in America.” An Imperial IPA brewed to be savored from a snifter. A big beer with a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. 90 Minute IPA was our first continually-hopped beer, which is a method of hopping that allows for a pungent, but not crushing hop flavor.
