3 Rings IPA on tap now!!  Ballantine's IPA is one of the legends
of beer.  To beer experts it has an almost mystical, epic stature.  Once
produced in Newark's historic Balllantine Brewery, this classic IPA  was brewed
to a gravity of 1.068, 60 IBU's, aged in wood for 9 months, and came in at just
over 6% ABV.  Gaslight's head brewer, DJ Soboti, has painstakingly re-created
this great ale and calls it
3 Rings IPA in honor of the Ballantine three ring logo
("purity, body, flavor".) His amazing creation is currently available on tap only
at the Gaslight.  Don't miss this rare treat.  It's going fast.     
Special note - DJ promises a cask version soon!

DB15 Best Beer Selections
The members of the Draught Board 15  had a
chance to evaluate a sampling of fall beers along
with home brews in a blind tasting at the October
meeting.   

Selected as best cider was an impressive home
brew from  Brian Lynch. It was well balanced with
a clean, fruity nose.  The appley taste finished
crisply with no unpleasant sweetness or after
flavors.

Honors for the best mead went to Jeff Levine for
his all-maple creation.  This was a crystal-clear,
brilliant straw-colored liquid, slightly sweet, with a
well tuned alcohol palate. Excellent cacophony of
flavors;  big yet well balanced.

In the beer tasting JW Deundee's Honey Brown,
Dog Fish Pumkin Ale, and Octoberfests from Old
Dominion, Saranac, Otter Creek, and Harpoon were
sampled.  The pick for best brew went to Old
Dominion brought by Dan Hodge.  Second place
went to the hoppy Harpoon entry.  The Honey
Brown was voted last on most scorecards.
