Emmit's Irish Pub
495 N. Milwaukee Ave
Wednesday December 12th at 7pm.
Featuring the following beers:
Bourbon County Stout
Brewed in honor of the 1000th batch at our original Clybourn brewpub. a liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with thick foam the color of a bourbon barrel. The nose is an intense mix of charred oak, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and smoke. One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer.
A heavily-hopped imperial stout, Night Stalker is a heavyweight of a beer. It delivers a formidable punch of hops and rich roasted malt notes to the nose in a silky body that’s as dark as night.
Epic amounts of roasted malt and an addition of cacao nibs give Big John a massive chocolate flavor and aroma. With a body as substantial and black as the building to which it pays homage, Big John is sure to inspire a sense of awe with every sip.
With an aroma of roasted chestnuts and a mysteriously dark, mahogany hue, Pepe Nero is a farmhouse ale brewed with black peppercorns. His roasty sweetness melds into a lingering, earthy, black pepper finish that is ideal for pairing with grilled meats and roasted vegetables.
A Belgian style pale ale blended with hibiscus and kombucha tea, Fleur is a beautiful, rose-colored ale with an aroma of strawberries and hibiscus flowers. Her flavor balance starts with a hint of sweet, ripe berry and finishes tart.
Originally brewed as the 4000th batch at Goose Island's Fulton Street Brewery, this Belgian-style Imperial India Pale Ale has an ample malt base, a fruity Belgian yeast aroma, and an alluring citrus hop flavor.
Wild in character, with a slightly fruity aroma and a spicy yeast flavor that is as unique as it is satisfying – Matilda is an intriguing choice for beer and wine lovers alike. Dry and quenching, it’s the perfect accompaniment at the dining table or for casually socializing at the bar.
Every year to celebrate the holiday season, Goose Island brews up their Christmas Ale, and with each year they change the recipe slightly so that you have something special to look forward to. Traditionally, their Christmas Ale is a complex brown ale that develops well in the bottle for up to five years.
