Lockhart’s BBQ in Royal Oak is showing their love for Michigan craft beer with a special tap event in January, then launching a twice-monthly craft brewery series beginning in March.
Tickets will not be needed for the OddSide tap event or the brewery series, although space will be limited to available seating.
OddSide Ales Tap Event
OddSide Ales will be bringing four limited edition beers for a tap event on January 28, beginning at 6 p.m.
Patrons who arrive early will receive one ticket to purchase a pour of their Hipster Brunch Stout. If any quantity remains, additional purchases will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Cherrywood, BA Mayan Mocha, and Nihilist will also be available throughout the event — until the kegs run dry.
In addition to the specialty beer, an off-menu appetizer will also be available to order. In true hipster dining fashion, the folks at Lockhart’s will be serving up Bacon Sushi, which has been described as a bacon and cheese roll-up.
Here’s news about the brews:
Hipster Brunch Stout
It’s morning somewhere! This delectable stout has been aged in bourbon barrels with coffee, maple syrup, and bacon. 10% ABV. $8 for an 8-ounce pour.
Cherrywood begins with a base of Morningwood stout (bourbon barrel aged) enhanced with tart cherries. Hinting at the flavor of a chocolate-covered cherry, this beer still packs a punch. 10% ABV. $7.50 for an 8-ounce pour.
Imperial Barrel Aged Mayan Mocha Stout
Inspired by Mexican hot chocolate, this smooth stout will keep you coming back for more. It is carefully blended with Dutch chocolate coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, and habanero peppers — the perfect balance of chocolate and heat. The imperial version is aged in a bourbon barrel for an extra layer of flavor. 9.5%ABV. $9.50 for a 12- ounce pour.
Nihilist is the bourbon barrel aged brother of El Dankerino, an imperial IPA. “The beer that cares about nothing” actually does care about flavor and a double-digit alcohol level 10% ABV. $8 for a 12-ounce pour.
Michigan Craft Beer Thursdays
The lower level of Lockhart’s will become home to a fun and educational series every other Thursday starting in March.
A different brewery will be featured at each gathering, and will include a brewery representative to discuss their product with guests.
Details are being ironed out and are subject to change, but each event will feature $4 draft beer pours.
