Bangerz: Flamingo

It’s a whale of an ale! Unicorns are real! On the first Thursday of every month, we raid our cellar and tap one of the most rare, special, or just downright delicious beers we can find. We like to call them Bangerz! Every Banger will be tapped at open, but when it’s gone it’s gone. We will have no regrets. Will you?

 

This month’s Banger is:

 

Rhinegeist {Cincinnati, OH}

Flamingo

New England-Style IPA – 6.8% ABV

 

An IPA brewed with a different strain of yeast that produces a plethora of tropical fruit flavors (peach, mango, papaya and pineapple) to complement the tropical fruity hops that are used (Citra, Galaxy and Vic Secret). Rhinegeist only brewed a tiny bit of this juice bomb and we’re not sure we’ll ever see it again!
