Ghost Train Brewing Co. Launch Party, June 24

ghosttrainJoin us on Wednesday, June 24th when the folks at Ghost Train Brewing Company take over the pub for an official Birmingham Launch Party!

Ghost Train Brewing Company has arrived in Birmingham thanks to the hard work and passion of Taylor and Paige DeBoer, two veterans of the Birmingham craft beer scene with Taylor being a former partner at Cahaba Brewing Co.  Taylor has spent the last few years meticulously tweaking his homebrew recipes and hosting tasting events throughout the Southeast to gain feedback from craft beer lovers.  After dozens of recipe changes, he is finally confident that Ghost Train is ready to hit the market with a portfolio of brews that will truly stand out.  The DeBoers are currently in the process of locating the perfect spot to open their brewery in Birmingham, so their beers are temporarily being contract brewed at Crooked Letter Brewing Company in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

For this special launch party, Taylor DeBoer will be hanging out for a Meet & Greet to chat with you about Ghost Train Brewing and his lineup of beers.  To get you further acquainted with those beers, we will be featuring the following flight of four Ghost Train offerings for just $8 during the event:

  • Dark Ride Belgian Style Strong Ale – This one will take you for a ride! It’s a Belgian Style Strong Ale brewed with Alabama wildflower honey. Despite its medium brown color, Dark Ride is surprisingly refreshing and clean. Brewed to a high gravity with Belgian ale yeast, you’ll detect the classic spicy flavors that are finished with delicate wildflower honey. Don’t be scared off by this one, you’ll be glad you tried it. ABV – 8.7% IBUs – 23.2
  • Go-Devil Golden Ale – Go-Devil Golden Ale is our West Coast interpretation of a Golden Ale. You’ll enjoy the crisp, refreshing citrus aroma that only the freshest Citra hops can deliver. One thing is for certain, this is the ultimate “lawnmower beer” for the craft beer lover. ABV – 4.9% IBUs – 25.6
  • Switchman’s Stash India Pale Lager – Switchman’s Stash is an India Pale Lager of the highest order. Using cool temperatures and bottom fermenting yeast, The Stash finishes nice and clean. The lagering period leaves this beer crystal clear and enhances our use of the dankest American hops that you would expect in your favorite West Coast IPA. ABV – 6.9% IBUs – 71.7
  • Terminal Station Brown Ale – Terminal Station is a Northern English Style Brown Ale. You’ll enjoy this slightly dry, hop-forward version of a classic nut brown ale. The balanced, nutty flavor of this ale makes it easy to drink. This beer pays homage to one of Birmingham’s most beautiful ghosts, The Terminal Station. ABV – 4.51% IBUs – 22.3

As an added bonus, everyone who orders the featured flight during the launch party will receive a free Ghost Train pint glass (while supplies last)!

We had the great pleasure of sampling the beers above when they debuted at Magic City Brewfest earlier this month, and believe us when we say that these tasty brews truly cannot be missed.  We hope that you all can join us on Wednesday to give Ghost Train Brewing Company a proper welcome to our tap wall and the Birmingham beer scene!
