Mardi Gras Tap Take Over starts Fat Tuesday!
Not able to make it to New Orleans, LA for Fat Tuesday……..Don’t worry Nickel and Rye in Uptown Dallas has you covered. We are having a Mardi Gras Tap Take Over Party. Just to name a few of our many drafts: Lakewood French Quarter Temptress, Abita Mardi Gras Bock and Abita Bourbon Street Imperial Stout. Don’t worry if have a large group that wants to celebrate Fat Tuesday (February 9, 2016). Call ahead 214.389-2120 and we will reserve a table for you. Another great thing about our Mardi Gras Tap Take Over Party……we are still running our Tuesday Night special, LADIES NIGHT! All unaccompanied ladies receive ½ off their entire check! What a great way to celebrate Fat Tuesday ladies! We are located on McKinney Avenue Directly across from Whole Foods and the Residence at the Gables. There is valet parking in the rear of the building (off Routh St.). You can pretend the M-Trolley is a street car in New Orleans and ride that. They stop right in front of us and across from Whole Foods, Uptown on McKinney Ave.
After you read these beer descriptions you are going to wish today was Fat Tuesday 😉
Lakewood Brewing Co. Dallas, Texas
French Quarter Temptress
Lakewood Brewing Co. paired with Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters are green, Fair-Trade Certified™. They roasted Peruvian coffee beans to perfection in recently emptied bourbon barrels for months. After the beans are roasted, Lakewood Brewing Co. then slowly infuses them into their Temptress Beer with a dash of chicory. Close your eyes, take a sip and you will go straight to Fat Tuesday 😉
Abita New Orleans, LA
Mardi Gras Bock
Abita’s first seasonal beer (Jan – March) is part of Mardi Gras Tap Take Over at Nickle and Rye. Mardi Gras Bock is similar to a German maibock. Both having rich malt flavors and full in body. They brew it with pale, pilsner, caramel malts and German Perle hops. Sure to make you feel like you are down in the Quarter.
Bourbon Street Imperial Stout
Abita batches this Imperial Stout in small bourbon barrels with roasted malts (pale, caramel, chocolate) giving it a strong aroma and dark rich velvety color. They also added oats making it a full body beer. The brewing process for this beer is unique. After the beer has fermented in the bourbon barrels Abita cold ages the beer for 6 weeks. By doing this all the flavors of the hops and malts really mesh resulting in a smother flavor. Now, the Stout is ready to be moved back to the bourbon barrels for 8 weeks. At the end of the process you have Abita’s Bourbon Street Imperial Stout. Skip dessert, this is yours
