The Laughing Dog Firkin Takeover: 5 Specially Crafted Casks on Tap!

The Laughing Dog Firkin Takeover: 5 Specially Crafted Casks on Tap!

Our good friend Fred Colby, owner and brewmaster of Laughing Dog Brewing Company out in beautiful Sandpoint, Idaho, likes to take good care of us. Every now and then he sends us a fresh cask or two of his intensely-flavored ales...and not long ago, he contacted us to collaborate on spinning a handful of firkins he'd earmarked for ChurchKey.

One thing led to another, and on Wednesday, August 7th, we will be devoting all 5 of our cask engines to the brews of Laughing Dog! And not only will we be featuring 5 different brews on cask, we worked with Fred to specifically design each cask treatment.

Alpha Dog Imperial IPA has been packaged with slightly-cracked, whole bean Sumatran coffee locally-roasted by Evans Brothers in Sandpoint; Rocket Dog Rye IPA has been seasoned with dried lemon peel & fresh grapefruit peel; Dogzilla Black IPA has been dry-hopped in the firkin with experimental hop ADHA 483, adding bold melon-like hop aromatics; Sneaky Pete Imperial IPA gets spicy through an addition of Santa Fe chili peppers; and Anubis Coffee Stout has been finished with a nice helping of toasted coconut>

There is no admission for this event and all Laughing Dog casks will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours.

Alpha Dog Imperial IPA (w/ Evans Brothers Coffee)
Rocket Dog Rye IPA (w/ Lemon & Grapefruit Peels)
