Winter War

On December 14th beginning at 3pm Local Option will host it’s final beer event of 2012: “Winter War”.  The courage of Finnish troops who successfully repelled invasions by air, land and sea from the Soviet Union in December 1939 will be honored by the tapping of the most defiant and subversive beers available.  Highlights include Barrel Aged Black Sun Stout and Barrel Aged Owd Engwish Barley Wine from Three Floyds.  These beers will be tapped at times corresponding to dates of battles in which the Finns emerged victorious against the Red Army.  The event will also feature barrel aged beers from Half Acre (Chicago), Firestone Walker (California), and a tapping of the latest creation from Pipeworks (Chicago): Unicorn Galaxy. A special appearance will be made by Dj Upside Down Cross.
