Bad Weather Brewing Ominous Firkin with Vanilla Beans

At 3:00pm don’t miss Bad Weather Brewing‘s Ominous Firkin with Vanilla Beans at Republic at Seven Corners in Minneapolis. At 7.5% ABV, this Midwest Warmer has the layers to stand up to the most frigid of winter nights, which we know all too well. American, English and Belgian malts come together to satisfy the soul with rich, nutty, roasted flavors. Dark candi sugar brings out hints of dates, raisins, plum and chocolate. Infuse that with vanilla beans and the firkin’s natural carbonation and you’ve got yourself quite a warm winter beer. More details. Republic, 3:00pm, 221 Cedar Ave S – Minneapolis
