Abacus & Hop Fest Coming to Hungry Monk
Hungry Monk in Chandler has a great lineup of Firestone-Walker beers tapping tomorrow as well as a great event at the end of April for all the local hop-heads. March 31 will be the tapping party for FW's Abacus. This was a hit beer at Strong Beer 2010, being one of the first to tap out. It is a 13% ABV American-style Barleywine aged up to three years in Bourbon barrels. To celebrate, Hungry Monk will have Union Jack, Double Jack and Walker's Reserve Porter on tap all day long, followed up with a cask of Double Barrel Ale at 4pm. The Abacus keg will tap at 7pm, and judging by how long the keg of FW 14th Anniversary lasted, it will be gone by 8:30 or so.
