Great US-micros on draught at Oliver Twist


Currently Oliver Twist has a new batch of US-micros for sale (actually since a couple of weeks) and has this time around also succeeded in getting a bunch of them on draught. Simply it is a small miracle that you can now drink your favorite US-micro or even better a new favorite on draught in the capital of Sweden (thanks to Jugge at OT). They are not provided as a single batch, so you have to wait for them, one by one, when one has been finished.

On the picture you can see the line up, which is pretty amazing, when you actually check what kind of beer it is. Mostly it is strong beers, which I imagine is caused by the long travel, so that kind of beers is better for travels on kegs, but I do not know the actual cause.

How about favorites so far, well that needs to be the Double Daddy IPA from Speakeasy. The Jah*va stout from Southern Tier is impressive, but to me it was simply to much to drink, at least with the amount you got, more fun then world class.

I will come back about this, when I have succeeded in testing at least some more of the draught beers (work is starting on Monday, so you can not be there every day from now on, :))

Well, regarding the jahva stout you would expect it to be a little on the heavy side given the 12% ABV and 120 IBU. =)

But I liked it a lot. It was pleasantly sweet and had a good flavour. But it is clearly a beer
you should have in moderate amounts.
