Blue 5’s “Christmas In July” Event Begins To Take Shape

Blue 5 RestaurantAre you ready to indulge in the dark?  As noted in Monday’s post, Blue 5 Restaurant’s “Christmas In July”, the downtown restaurant’s annual summertime celebration of stouts, porters, and dark beers, kicks off Friday at 5pm.  Around 25 of these types of dark beers in all are apparently going to be making an appearance at the event (according to the restaurant’s Facebook page) but to get your mouth watering and ready for the upcoming dive into the overwhelming selection of velvety smooth, rich ales, below is a partial list of the ones that will be available.

Terrapin Brewing’s Wake ‘N’ Bake Imperial Coffee Oatmeal Stout

Three Brothers Resolute Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout

Three Brothers Atramentous (Resolute Barrel Aged Sour Belgian Stout)

Allagash Brewing Red Howes (Stout brewed with cranberries)

Perennial Ales “17” Mint Chocolate Stout

Foothills Brewing Sexual Chocolate

Boulevard Brewing Chocolate Ale

Evil Twin Brewing Biscotti Break Porter

BFM (Swiss) La Mandragore Foreign Stout

Parkway Brewing Barrel Aged Belgian Dark Ale Magella

Again, this is only a partial list.  On the restaurant’s Facebook page, a listing of breweries likely to be represented also includes the likes of Founders, Schlafly, Oskar Blues, Smuttynose, Legend, Lost Rhino, and Starr Hill just to name a few.

In addition, the night will also likely serve as our first introduction to Hardywood Park Brewery, which recently announced it would begin distributing into the Roanoke area.  Representatives will likely be on hand, and it is rumored that not only will brewery logo glasses will be available for a limited time, but the brewery may also contribute to the spirit of the night with one or two of their own beers as well.
