Blues Brews and Barbecue wouldn’t be what it is without beer. This year we’ll have our friends at Walnut River and Salt City providing the craft beer. There will be a mix of lighter beers, sours, and reds as well as event-exclusive Off The Record Dunkel.
Off The Record Dunkel – get the newspaper and music pun?- is an incredible specimen of the style with dark roasted malt, bready flavor, and just a hint of chocolate that shows up at the end. It’s brewed by Walnut River, only served once a year at Blues Brews and Barbecue, and usually sells out fast. If you’re a craft beer person, it’s worth a try to just say you’ve tasted it.
As well as other excellent brews from local breweries, there will be domestic cans as well as wine. Hell, we might even buy a few cases of White Claw to keep everyone happy.
