The Nook sent a truck to Birmingham yesterday to pick up some newly legal Gourmet Beer (necessary until distribution gets set up). The beers available included:
Duvel, a Belgian Strong Pale Ale style-rated AAA with 8.5% ABV, which sold for $7 each, plus sales tax and tip.
Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, from North Coast Brewery in California style-rated AAA with 9% ABV, sold for $6 each, plus sales tax and tip.
Orval Trappist Ale, a Belgian Pale Ale made my Trappist monks style-rated AAA with 6.9% ABV, sold for $8 each (it’s for a good cause) plus sales tax and tip.
Three Philosophers Belgian Blend, a New York made Quadrupel style-rated AA with 9.8% ABV, sold for $7 each plus sales tax and tip.
To elected officials: look at that increased basis for the sales tax.
BTW, Microwave Dave played at the Nook last night (but without the Nukes). Microwave Dave is a great Huntsville music institution – he’s been playing here as long as I can remember.
