This is what you have all been waiting for – The Draught Lottery releases. After a couple months of blood, sweat and brews, five teams representing 20 Kansas City area breweries collaborated to create five distinct beers that will be released to the public this Saturday.
International Tap House in the Crossroads is hosting the main event and will have the five Draught Lottery beers on tap. The host breweries and other restaurants and bars around the city will also have them on tap beginning Saturday. This is the biggest beer collaboration Kansas City has seen.
Watch the first of many Tap List tasting videos. Cassie Niemeyer is our beer-taster this week and will tell you all about brews that are out now in Kansas City.
Double Shift Brewing Company has Guava Lamp (7.1%) back on tap, a dry-hopped mango guava sour.
Strange Days Brewing Company has Cloud Ride (6.2%) on tap. A hazy IPA brewed with amarillo, simcoe, and ekuanot hops.
