Bill Madden and the Mad Fox team are getting in on this week’s festivities with two events that will surely keep your tastebuds happy. Be sure to check these out!
First, on Tuesday, August 16 at 3pm, Mad Fox will be tapping Tupper’s India Ink Black IPA. This is their version of a Black IPA brewed in collaboration with Bob and Ellie Tupper of Tuppers’ Hop Pocket fame. Dark malts like Chocolate Wheat, Carafa and Black malt comprise the grist and this brew was hopped with Bob and Ellies’ favorite hop varietal: Mt. Hood. This beer was then dry hopped with 50 pounds of Mt. Hood hops as well. Inky black in color and a hophead’s dream.
Can’t make it on Tuesday? Then on Wednesday, August 16 be sure to hit up the DC New Brewery “Kill the Keg” Event. This event will feature beers from the four DC area breweries that have opened in the last year. The brewers and owners from DC Brau, Lost Rhino, Port City, and Mad Fox are getting together to enjoy some beers together, and you are invited to join us. In the spirit of friendly competition, we’re going to see whose keg gets killed first. Starting at 6PM, four kegs will be tapped, and the first brewery’s keg to blow wins the admiration of their peers and is crowned “King of DC Beer” for the day. Mad Fox will be filling growlers and pints of:
* DC Brau Porter
* Lost Rhino New River Pale Ale
* Port City Monumental IPA
* Mad Fox Orange Whip IPA
