Now on tap: Cuvée de Jacobins Rouge

We now have this lovely Sour Ale on tap from Brouwerij Omer Vander Ghinste (Bockor), Belgium.

Cuvée des Jacobins Rouge 5,5%
Cuvée des Jacobins Rouge is a Flemish Sour Ale, red in color with a beguiling balance of malty sweetness and acidic sharpness. It is made from spontaneously fermented and barrel-aged beer of at least 18 months in age. The beer is cooled overnight in a large, shallow metal vessel called a coolship and then fermented and aged in large oak foudres which are made in France and assembled on-site at Bockor. It has a robust character but is beautiful and sophisticated with a full body and overtones of vanilla, dried cherry, stone fruit and cocoa. It is a complex, beautiful sour beer.

Vappu with Ants in the Pants!

Happy May Day Eve!

Ants in the Pants will be playing LIVE on May Day Eve!

Ants in the Pants play traditional Irish music spiced up with some more modern tunes. They’re also not afraid to take into account requests from the audience.
The music consists of up-tempo Irish fiddle tunes, traditional ballads, and towards end of the show, they usually put in a few well chosen pop songs (Queen, Oasis, Green Day etc.).

Ants in the Pants duo was formed in 1997, after a very drunken Irish music session, on a freezing Helsinki winters morning.
The band soon gained huge popularity on the Finnish Irish music scene, came, conquered and in 2001 found themselves living in Donegal, the home of Irish traditional music.
The band was deported from Donegal for playing traditional fiddle tunes and ballads all too up-tempo for local taste, and found themselves back in sunny Finland in 2003.
After a few tours to Holland and Germany, the Band set up base camp in Ochtrup, Munsterland (never heard? Don..t worry, nobody has!), and tours the World and elsewhere!
