Grand Opening and Blind Tiger Triple IPA Release
Speakeasy Ales & Lagers officially celebrates its return with a Grand Opening event at the brewery on Saturday, January 27, 2018! Recently re-opening the doors to their remodeled Hunters Point taproom and resurrecting its bottle production for retail distribution throughout California (and select markets across the country), Speakeasy Ales & Lagers continues its two-decade history and tradition as one of San Francisco’s stalwart production breweries. At the Grand Opening event on January 27, Speakeasy Ales & Lagers releases the hoppiest beer they’ve ever brewed, the taproom-only exclusive Blind Tiger Triple IPA (10.6% ABV). Taking place outdoors and inside the taproom at Speakeasy Ales & Lagers, the Grand Opening features 17 draft beers from Speakeasy along with food by Native Sons BBQ, El Taquero Tacos and music by The Dirty Downtown Jazz Syndicate.
Blind Tiger Triple IPA has a massively aromatic blend of hops delivering resinous citrus fruit flavors, with the bitterness cranked well over 100 IBUs. With an absurd addition of over 10 pounds of hops per barrel — including Huell Melon, El Dorado, Columbus, and Centennial — and clocking in at over 10% ABV, Blind Tiger explodes with flavors of freshly cut melon, citrus peel, and ripe passionfruit.
