7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Lou’s City Bar’s new tasting program is thrilled to welcome Toppling Goliath Brewing Company, founded in 2009 in Decorah, Iowa, for our second virtual tasting event. Toppling is world-renowned for their IPAs and barrel-aged stouts, including being named the #2 brewery in the world by Beer Advocate and boasting the #1 beer in the world since 2015.
Our guides for this tasting will be Toppling Goliath’s Hannah Bernatz and DC beer consultant Jace Gonnerman.
They will walk you through a 4-5 beer tasting including a mixed 4-pack of TG’s flagship Pseudo Sue, King Sue, Pompeii, and either Dragon Fandango or Dolphin Sparkles (limited qty, selection not guaranteed) — all beers with ratings above 4.0 on Untappd. We also have a limited quantity of the coveted Double Dry-Hopped King Sue bottles, available as an add-on for this tasting.
Please note that customers are limited to one 4-pack and one add-on bottle. All orders are served with Lou’s House-made Chips in flavors Salt & Pepper, Old Bay, and BBQ. Orders will be available for pick-up starting 9/1/20, and Zoom details for the tasting will be sent out 24-48 hours before the scheduled event. The tasting will be recorded and a link emailed to all attendees in case they are unable to make it for the 7pm start time. All purchasers are also entered into our raffle for a bottle of TG’s extremely limited release, Morning Delight Imperial Coffee Maple Stout. See full details on each beer below.
