On Monday, March 1 The Big Hunt will be pouring a very limited amount of Great Lakes Brewing Company’s spring seasonal; Holy Moses.
Holy Moses White Ale is a Belgian-style Wit named for Moses Cleaveland, a Connecticut native who founded Cleveland in 1796. According to the Great Lakes website, this seasonal brew is only available April – July, but the Big Hunt seems to have some sort of beer-mojo (or blackmail photos) and was able to get a 1/6 (5.16 gallon) keg.
I spoke to Dave Coleman, Bar Manager at The Big Hunt, and he said that the keg is being sent over as a “thank you” in appreciation for The Big Hunt being Great Lakes Brewing Company’s biggest DC account. Coleman is excited for this preview showing, but prefers to think of it as a tease, or as he put it, “a peep show.”
The bar will open at 4:00pm as usual on Monday, March 1 and they will start pouring the Holy Moses at 5:00pm. In addition, all Great Lakes beers will $5 all night. A representative from Great Lakes will be there to hand out goodies and talk about their beers and their brewery.
