Draft Punk Release Party

| May 11, 2011 | 0 Comments

Punk’s Backyard Grill (2188 Annapolis Mall) is kicking off American Craft Beer Week with the release of its own collaboration beer, “Draft Punk,” brewed with Oliver Ales (Pratt St., Baltimore, MD). To celebrate the release of “Draft Punk,” Punk’s Backyard Grill is offering $3 pints, souvenir glassware, and 20% off of all food from 6:00pm – 10:00pm on Monday, May 16th.  Punk’s and Brewmaster Steve Jones from Oliver Ales will be tapping traditional kegs as well as a firkin for this event.

The recipe for “Draft Punk” was created by Brewmaster Steve Jones of Oliver Ales in collaboration with David McCabe, one of the owners of Punk’s Backyard Grill.  The final product is a 7.0% ABV American IPA that was bittered with Chinook hops and finished with whole leaf Cascade hops.  It was then dry hopped in the conditioning tank with additional whole leaf Cascades. The beer will be available at Punk’s Backyard Grill in Annapolis, the Pratt St. Ale House in Baltimore, and a few select bars and restaurants in the Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD region.

“We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such a talented brewer, and we had a great time brewing this beer,” says McCabe.  “Draft Punk is a wonderfully balanced, fresh and fragrant IPA that will be our house beer at Punk’s all summer.”
