Trench Day 2016
Due South is proud to announce January 23, 2016 will be the release date for the award-winning Mariana Trench Imperial Stout. Like last year, this year's bottle release festival will be a ticketed event. Tickets for the event will be limited to 300 people. Each $35 ticket will include a commemorative tasting glass and unlimited samples of 35+ special release beers from Due South and other Florida breweries. All attendees will be guaranteed the ability to purchase up to 4 bottles of Mariana Trench. A free shuttle will be running from the Tri-Rail station to the brewery during the event if you choose to come by train or park in the Tri-Rail parking lot. Food trucks will be onsite too.
Tickets will go on sale online to members of The Club on 12/1715 and to the general public 12/19/15. Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for more information.
The featured beer this month is Chocolate Peppermint Stout. For this beer we begin with our classic milk stout recipe and all of its creamy goodness, double down on the chocolate and infuse natural peppermint. Cheers!
Chocolate Peppermint Stout is available on draft and in four pack cans in the taproom and in limited distribution.
Due South Employee Spotlight
We want to introduce you to Troy. He manages most of the small batch treatment beers for us. He did an amazing job to get ready for last month's event at World of Beer Wellington which tapped 50 different Due South beers. And he stays busy coming up with new beers every week for Treatment Wednesday in the taproom.
What is your favorite Due South beer?
My favorite Due South beer is Category 5. I never really found an IPA that I enjoyed until I discovered Category 5. The malt complexity balances perfectly with the Citra.
What treatment beer is the most difficult to make?
The most difficult treatment to make is Calling all Cars. There is so much going on in that beer. Itâ€™s one of the very few beers that I will be tweaking right up to the last second.
Besides the brewery taproom, where is your favorite place to drink a good beer?
My favorite place to grab a beer besides our taproom is the Yard House, simply for the reason that they always have Cat 5 and Legendairy on tap!
If youâ€™re in the Fort Lauderdale area, we suggest you pop on over to The Riverside Market, jump in a big comfy chair with a Due South beer and enjoy the awesome company!
