Watermelon Halcyon

It's another Firkin Friday with Tallgrass. This time they're tapping a firkin of watermelon Halcyon with orange peel. This is really a combination of 4 of my favorite things; watermelon, Halcyon, orange and firkin. If you're unsure about watermelon in a beer then you've probably never had 21st Amendment's Hell or High Watermelon Wheat which I had and enjoyed on a 45 degree night in July in San Francisco. It won't be that cold tomorrow night in Olathe so you don't have to worry about having a chill while you're sipping on some watermelon. Better yet, it's going to be just about the last day near 75 for the year, so sipping on a summer beer will be the perfect thing to do.

The firkin is going to be tapped Friday night at 7 at the Old Chicago in Olathe. The last time they did a firkin at Old Chicago, the crowd was a little light. Tallgrass does quite a few firkins, if we want to continue to get some instead of them wasting them on emaw's in Manhattan we need to show up. Remember about 4 years ago when Old Chicago (and Barley's) were the only places in town to get special releases? We've come a long way in a short time. Anyway, Old Chicago has a pretty friendly relationship with Tallgrass and deserves to be rewarded by filling the place up for some firkin Halcyon.
