Evil Twin Tasting Event Thursday, February 20
Evil Twin Brewing was founded by Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø in 2010 and it has quickly become one of the most talked about gypsy breweries in the world. The term “gypsy brewery” basically means that they don’t have your standard brick and mortar brewery. Instead, Evil Twin beers are brewed at ten different breweries in six different countries around the world. With a focus on “delicate, funky, extreme and by all means rare flavors”, Evil Twin launched more than 40 beers that were distributed in over a dozen countries besides the United States in 2012. Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø moved his family to Brooklyn, New York in March of 2012 and he is now focused on making New York the beer capital of the world.
Luckily, the beers of this fine brewing company are available in our great city thanks to our friends at International Wine & Craft Beer. To get everyone a bit more acquainted, we decided to join forces with International once again so all of you craft beer lovers can come down to the pub on Thursday, February 20th to try these seven, delicious brews from Evil Twin:
- Even More Jesus Imperial Stout – A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare! Brewed at Westbrook Brewing Company in South Carolina.
- Femme Fatale Yuzu Pale – To take up the challenge and make a 100% true Brett IPA with Yuzu fruit can very easily become a fatal attraction for the Brewmaster. Once you get acquainted with the Yuzu fruits irresistible and seductive personality, along with Bretts overpowering, alluring and very charming nature, it will ensnare you and drive you mad obsessing over how exactly you can create the perfect desirable tangy, funky, crisp, tart flavor in ya mouth. Brewed at Westbrook Brewing Company in South Carolina.
- Hipster Ale – Perhaps you heard of a worldwide beer-movement that tributes favorite hipster neighbourhoods across the globe. If you feel excluded because you’re hip but your city is not, this cutting-edge, ‘hip without border’ pale ale is an homage to you – the global hipster. Cheers! Brewed at Two Roads Brewing Co. in Connecticut.
- Joey Pepper Belgian Blonde – With intellectual curiosity, impeccable perfection and childlike excitement he examines, drinks and teaches the beers. His name is Joey Pepper. Maybe he is real or maybe an allegory. One thing is certain – we’ve all met him and admired his extreme commitment, laser focus and contagious behavior. Remember next time you wanna accomplish something – examine, consump and inspire like Joey Pepper. ‘Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion’ (G.W.F. Hegel). Brewed at Westbrook Brewing Company in South Carolina.
- Lil’ B Imperial Porter – Shall one compare thee to a fair beer, Not even this perfect porter before thou will do thee justice. Thou art more complex, brave and cunning. Thou have changed more than a brew will ever. Thou may be lil’, but thy mind is greater than words can speak and beer will ever taste. Brewed at Two Roads Brewing Co. in Connecticut.
- Mad Dog Pale Ale – Named after an antagonist movie character with a violent temper and a propensity for drooling, furthermore brewed amongst mad-ish Scottish dogs. Nevertheless is this beer far from mad itself. You’ll find it a very pleasant, peaceful and a loyal Pale Ale – wooof. Brewed at BrewDog in Scotland.
- Yin & Yang – This is a complete RTD Black and Tan. Not just any Black and Tan but the one where we flawlessly mixed a flippant good Imperial IPA with a profoundly evil Imperial Stout and sustained sweet beer balance. Brewed at BrewDog in Scotland.
Let’s be honest. We have all been staring at these beers on store shelves and on beer menus. Just the sight of the names and the label artwork has left us all a little curious. Who wouldn’t be? Well the time to try them is now, so head down to the pub on February 20th to get a bit more familiar with the beers of Evil Twin Brewing and the fine folks at International Wine & Craft Beer. Bring those cool friends of yours and we will have the beer waiting on you guys and gals. See you all then!
