Brooklyn Blast! Now On Tap At The Abbey

This week in Miami is Art Basel.  It is one of the biggest art fairs in the world. With all of the works of art heading to Miami The Abbey decided to bring their own work of art in for a special treat.  The Abbey has two of the only kegs of Brooklyn Brewery Brewmaster's Reserve Blast! Double IPA in Florida.  This beer is usually only served at Brooklyn's own taproom.  The first keg was tapped last night and is sure not to last long.  Here is some more info on the beer. 

"Here in Brooklyn, we're half-way between the hop country of
Yakima Valley, Washington and the hop country of Kent in
England. So we use the bright citrusy American hops to bring
the noise and the earthy English hops to build the foundation of
a hop monster brandishing five pounds of hops per barrel with
considerable finesse. The varieties are half American, half English:
Ahtanum, Simcoe, Willamette, Centennial, Palisade, East
Kent Golding, Northdown, Challenger, and Fuggle. Maris Otter
and German Pilsner malts bring solidity, balance and beautiful
flavors to a golden beer that's ludicrously hoppy, strangely quaffable
and oddly compelling. You won't even know what hit you."
