It’s been a while since I talked to the guys at Tin Roof Brewing, but I managed to catch up with one of the co-owners, William McGehee, today. They have a few things in the works over the next couple weeks, so here’s an update.
First, they are debuting a Tropical IPA today at The Chimes East. The base beer for this is their Juke Joint IPA, but this one has mango, pineapple, and lychee. The nose is full of pineapple and citrus hops with a nice citrusy, tropical fruity background. It’s got Centennial, Citra, Falconer’s Flight, Cascade, Warrior, and Columbus hops. This will be tapped at 4:00 at Chimes East, so go by and check it out.
Friday, they are kegging their newest early fall seasonal, Turnrow. According to William, Turnrow is “a harvest ale brewed with fresh ground coriander. Its light, straw color and low bitterness make it a perfect complement to the hot days of early fall. The hops are Magnum and Styrian Golding, and the coriander provides just the right amount of the citrus spice to balance this refreshing brew.” Turnrow should be released on draft sometime next week. Stay tuned for information on where to find it on tap.
Rougarou imperial black ale will be brewed very soon, with a late-September or early-October release.
Construction on their tap room is progressing nicely, and they are very close to announcing an opening date. As soon as they do, I’ll let you know. I do know they plan to have 10 taps, with half being their regular lineup, and the other half being one-offs, test batches, or different takes on their flagships. I’m looking forward to seeing this in person, as it should be a really nice space, and I like trying out different beers I haven’t had.
