This past Thursday I was invited again to the Mohawk House for another craft beer extravaganza. This particular night would have Sam Adams Imperial series flowing all night. Featured beers included; Imperial White, Wee Heavy Scotch Ale, Oak Aged Porter, East West Kolsch and Chocolate Cherry Bock.
One of my favorite things about craft beers is the tap handles that represent the brew. I was a big fan of these wood and copper handles.
Having gotten the beer list days prior, I knew I had to start with the Chocolate Cherry Bock. Sorry I forgot to snap a picture of this brew, I got all caught up in how awesome the beer was.
I wasn't going for the high ABV offerings that were there but that doesn't mean I wasn't going to sample them. Here we have the Wee Heavy Scotch Ale. Well balanced sweet and malty, Â this style is really growing on me.
I also grabbed a sample of the Imperial White. I have had this one out of bottles but never on draft. It was very good a little too sweet for my liking but a good beer none the less.
Audi of Newton brought out some cars. I wanted to take the R8 for a spin but it wasn't in the cards for me. Maybe next time.
Cigar Room I and II were also on hand with a nice array of products.
Anyone got a light?
Another sponsor of the event was Bacardi and Three Olives. It was raining out so I didn't see many people at the ice luge.
I don't drink hard liquor but the colorful display of Bacardi bottles had me half convinced to try a sample.
No big event at the Mohawk House would be complete with out a live music. Everybody's favorite cover band, The Nerds, were on hand playing a wide variety of covers to keep people dancing all night.
I always hear about The Nerds but have never seen them. I found their gimmick to be very entertaining.
They had quite the light show going on as well with their performance and the red glow made for some cool pictures.
I think the drummer liked the camera the most.
Lets get back to the beer shall we. My favorite of the evening was the Oak Aged Porter.
Another well balanced brew from Sam Adams, this porter had a light oak flavor with hints of chocolate and coffee leaving a pleasant roasty finish.
My second favorite beer of the night and the most session-able brew was East West Kolsch.
Refreshing, light and crisp. Kolsch beers are definitely in this summer as they are very drinkable and something that anyone can get into.
The night was rounded out with Chris. I would love to give you his DJ name but he doesn't have one. Just a cool dude that loves good music and good beer. He was playing some more current tunes that complemented the Nerds set and kept people going all night. Thanks again to Rachel and Steve for having me up for this event and Tom Gibbons from Kohler distribution for supplying the exclusive Sam Adams brews.
