Weekend Tap Update, Roanoke Craft Curious!

Stone Sublimely Self RighteousJust in time for what looks like will be one beautiful weekend in Roanoke, a couple of IPAs have shown up on tap to assist you in enjoying the warm weather.  Gone from Local Roots Restaurant, unfortunately, is Stone Brewing’s absolutely delicious, drink fresh themed IPA “Enjoy By 05.17.13” but replacing it is another tasty beer from the California brewery.  Stone’s Sublimely Self Righteous went up on tap yesterday.  Whatever you choose to call it, an American Black Ale, Black IPA, Cascadian Ale, just make sure you take advantage of the chance to try it on draft.

Blue 5 has added a limited release IPA from Victory Brewing (PA) called NATO IPA.  Apparently, different parts of the recipe hail from America, Germany, and England – at least that’s what a couple reviews listed on the internet.  The beer is a once a year release at that, and difficult to find much information on.  Good luck finding its listing even on the Victory website!  Regardless, it seems to have been well thought of in previous releases.

Uncle Teddys BitterAnother Victory beer, also a limited release, has snuck onto the beer engine at Billy’s in downtown Roanoke.  Uncle Teddy’s Bitter.  This is a beer not to be missed on cask – more or less, it is the traditional way a beer of this style was meant to be!

Yet another great craft beer weekend in Roanoke is upon us with plenty of new chances to taste some stellar beer!  Cheers!
