Tapped! Hangar 24 Pugachev’s Cobra @ Golden Gopher – Limited Time Only!

April 3rd, 2012 — 1:11pm

We have just tapped this beer (due to multiple craft beer regulars waiting and asking for it to be tapped). We only have 5 gallons allocated to us. We saved it until now.

It only comes out once a year. $10. for 6.5oz pour.

Barrel Roll No. 3 – Pugachev’s Cobra
Get ready for an assault on your senses with PUGACHEV’S COBRA, an intense Russian Imperial Stout. This rich, black beauty with a thick caramel head is bursting with aromas of chocolate, vanilla, oak, bourbon, licorice and dark fruits, while flavors of chocolate-covered plum, sweet malt, bourbon, and roasted coffee explode on your pallet. This is no ordinary beer; three different dark roasted malts and rich maple syrup are combined in a truly unique brewing process to create complexity and depth. Once fermented, it’s then aged for eight months in freshly emptied bourbon barrels. This powerful concoction is designed to be enjoyed now with friends or cellared to perfection and savored in the years to come.

PUGACHEV’S COBRA: The brainchild of Victor Pugachev — not for the faint of heart. Pilot suddenly raises the aircraft nose to near vertical before dropping back to attack mode.

First Release: December 10, 2011

Anticipated Second Release: December 8, 2012

Juke Box Hero at the Golden Gopher on Monday Nights

April 2nd, 2012 — 11:37pm

So, I’ve been the music director for 213 for about 2 and something years and in that time I have not DJ’d any rock n roll or got my shitty band back together that I was in at the age of 19 to blow the doors off Casey’s. We sucked anyways, so be thankful. But sitting around listening to to music a few weeks ago I started thinking…Golden Gopher needs some good handpicked jams on a Monday night. So, yours truly is going to be DJ’ing Golden Gopher every Monday for a night I like to call, Juke Box Hero…You’l be hearing Zeppelin, AC/DC, Petty, Fleetwood Mac, Hendrix, Billy Squire, The Doors, Motley Crue, Kinks, The Who, Stones, Neil Young, ZZ Top, and the list goes on. All classic hits, all classic rock.

Now don’t think you are going to come in and see me on turntables gettin’ all crazy with all vinyl. I’m not. I’m all digital, champ. Not because I can’t handle a turn table, but the vinyl from so many years ago cranked up in a bar with crackles will not sound as good as my lovely laptop with mp3′s. Yes we all know that MP3′s lose some sound because of the compression but you now what? If you can tell I’m playing an MP3 and not vinyl then you’re not drinkn’ enough So pop in starting April 9th and every Monday going forward for Juke Box Hero. It’s good time music for those who love rock n roll.
