Beer Release Party - Mellified Man

4th Tap Brewing is excited to present our newest beer to ATX!: Mellified Man! 
Join us in the taproom to celebrate this Saturday. We will have live music from 3pm-7pm from Brian Wolff and Brett Montgomery Winning as well asCafe Ybor Food Bus serving up delicious food from 2pm-9pm. 

About the Beer:
Mellified Man
ABV: 5%
Style: Amber
German pilsner and Belgian chocolate malts, Magnum and Willamette hops. Chinese Flowery Orange Pekoe tea (black tea), orange blossom honey

A pleasing mixture of German and Belgian specialty malts create a subtle and complex foundation for a beer with distinct floral aromas. A liberal addition of orange blossom honey, balanced by the gentle bitterness and refreshing herbality of high-quality black tea leaves (Chinese flowery orange pekoe) creates the perfect pairing for sinful amounts of smoked brisket. Although it is definitely not a sweet beer, it remains an excellent and fitting complement, and we invite you to enjoy it on its own as well.

Our Co-op started with a bunch of friends gathered around a grill, eating barbecue and lovingly watching vast pots of sugar water boil. This beer is directly inspired by those early days for 4th Tap, as we sought to create an analogue for the Texas barbecue lovers' oft-quaffed companion: sweet tea.

Cheers!
