ばけねこ

7.2% Alc. by Vol.

64 IBU

36 SRM

Hop-forward flavor characteristics of an American IPA brewed with darker malts. The restrained chocolate and coffee malt flavors allow the citrusy, piney and resinous aspects of the hops to show through on the flavor with a light roast character on the finish. Smooth and balanced.

Brewed with Maris Otter Malt, Flaked Barley, Carafa III, Munich Malt, and Chocolate Rye Malt. Centennial hops, Cascade hops and American Ale yeast.

The name:

(Bäkéneko) ばけねこis a type of Japanese yōkai, or supernatural creature. According to its name, it is a cat that has changed into a yōkai. They have great shape-shifting abilities and frequently disguise themselves as smaller cats or humans – sometimes even their own masters. While in disguise, they like to dress up as humans with a towel wrapped around their head and dance around merrily. Many learn to speak human languages. They can eat things that are much bigger than they are, and even poisonous things, without any difficulty at all. It is even possible for a bakeneko to eat its own master and then take his form, living on in his place. If they do not kill their owners, they often bring down great curses and misfortune upon them. They can summon ghostly fireballs and are known to accidentally start house fires, their tails acting like torches on any flammable materials in the house. They also have the disturbing ability to reanimate fresh corpses and use them like puppets for their own nefarious purposes. They are generally a menace to any house they live in or near.

Meow.

Long Tacky Old Slacks Release

I’m excited to announce the initial release for Long Tacky Old Slacks dark this coming Monday, March 25th, at Eastside in Denton TX.

This is the second batch of beer we have brewed since getting our brewers license and we are having fun with this one. The base style of this beer is a Kolsch style ale (typically very light, crisp, clean, easy drinking beer) but we decided to add a little de-bittered black malt into this batch for a darker color and a toastier flavor.

So let’s get tacky at Eastside this Monday, March 25th!

Harvest House & Barley & Board

March 29th we are tapping Damage Dealer Double Stout at both Barley & Board and Harvest House! If you buy a pint at both locations between 6pm and 9pm you can get a free 5×7″ art print of your choice! So save the date, start at Barley & Board, get some food and some Toasty Bros., then head down to Harvest House for another beer and your free art print! I’ll be crawling between Barley & Board and Harvest House throughout the night until both kegs run out. See you on the 29th!
