What are Matt and Doggie Claws?
Matt is a 12.5% beer made with munich and smoked malts, and aged in bourbon barrels. The one I opened is really flat unfortunately, but it is delicious. I plan to age the rest and see what happens.
Doggie Claws is a barleywine, about 11% abv. It's usually a great beer, but I haven't had this year's yet.
If you get a chance to try any of the Hair of the Dog beers, I highly recommend them
Although one dig against Alan - how do you have a dock sale at your pub and NOT open the taps and let people buy beers? They don't open until 2, I had places to be and couldn't wait 4 hours to try peach infused Fred (although I wanted to). It made for good business at Cascade down the street though, every one in there when they opened had come from the Hair of the Dog dock sale.
