Dubbel Cannon – This is a BRAND NEW beer from Heavy Seas and one of the very first casks of the beer filled. It’s a Belgian-style IPA (India Pale Ale), intensely hoppy, but also with Belgian yeast-driven flavor. This particular version has Palisade, Cascade and Centennial hops in the cask itself, offering further floral and citric hop aromatics. Tonight is the opportunity to taste Dubbel Cannon before most everyone else.

Loose Cannon – This very citrus hop-driven American IPA has its aroma augmented with notes of smokiness, vanilla, and caramel. Marsh has dry-hopped the cask and added hand-toasted slats of Red Oak, White Oak, and Birch: a patriotic Red, White, & Birch, if you will.
