5730.06 Miles of Beer

Friends look on as drinkers enjoy a plethora of well traveled beers at Local Option

On Friday November 16th beginning at 3pm Local Option will host the “5730.06 Miles of Beer” event.  Beer nerds from around the world will flock to 1102 W. Webster to basque in the glory of the superb draught offerings from a collection of breweries spanning two continents and seven countries. The event’s name evinces the distance between St. Feuillien (Le Roeulx, Belgium) and Green Flash (San Diego, California) who collaborated in the creation of two beers on the list: Friendship Brew – a black saison that utilizes European and American hops, Belgian yeast and spices – and Biere de l’Amitie, a contemporary take on the blond saison with rye and wheat malt, and dry-hopped with amarillo.

Other drafts include fresh hop ales from Great Divide (Colorado) and Port Brewing (California); barrel aged offerings from Emelisse (Netherlands), Hof Ten Dormaal (Belgium), Goose Island (Chicago); in addition to rare and highly sought after beers from Evil Twin (Brooklyn) Haandbryggeriet (Norway) and De Dochter van de Korenaar (Belgium). Intrepid souls will be able to try the first offering from the world’s most recently annoited trappist brewery Stift Engelszell (Austria).
