Ed. Note: It’s been a while since I shared a PoP proclamation so let me have a go – while I like both these beers very very much – the best beer I’ve had in a long long time comes from a local(ish) brewery called RAR brewing out of Cambridge, Maryland. Not a double IPA but the Nanticoke Nectar is especially awesome (I’ve seen it at Nanny O’Briens and a few grocery stores.) If you happen to see it – I highly recommend you take a taste. Ok back to our regularly scheduled post.

More Hopslam fun.

From an email:

“Bell’s Hopslam and Troegs Nugget Nectar will vie for hop supremacy for the seventh year on the main floor of the Black Squirrel this Friday (Feb. 12), starting at 5 p.m.

Both highly coveted seasonal beers pack a wallop, with Hopslam reporting at 10 percent ABV and Nugget Nectar at 7.5 percent ABV.

You be the judge on which highly hopped ale reigns supreme. It’s your call. It’s all your pleasure.

As the knock-out punch, our chef will prepare IPA-infused Mac and Cheese, Citra-Hop-Seasoned Boardwalk Fries, and a Hop Daddy Burger topped with hop-infused cheddar sauce and hoppy mayonnaise. Hop-diggity-dog!

Hopslam vs Nugget Nectar Battle Royale
Friday, February 12th, starting at 5 p.m.”
