Danger – Biero has Brew Dog Tokyo on tap tonight!

Brew Dog Tokyo is an awesome beer. Biero $5 pint night is an awesome drinking experience. The two of them together is scary.

Why you ask – this is what Brew Dog say about Tokyo, an 18.2% ABV stout.
The irony of existentialism, the parody of being and the inherent contradictions of post-modernism, all so delicately conveyed by the blocky, pixelated arcade action have all been painstakingly recreated in this bottles contents.

This imperial stout is brewed with copious amounts of speciality malts, jasmine and cranberries. After fermentation we then dry-hop this killer stout with a bucketload of our favourite hops before carefully ageing the beer on French toasted oak chips.

It is all about moderation. Everything in moderation, including moderation itself. What logically follows is that you must, from time, have excess. This beer is for those times.

I love this beer, it is a triumph of modern brewing. And it does not taste like an 18.2% beer but it will kick peoples arse well and truly. I don’t know what they will charge, surely not $5 a pint. When it landed at Slowbeer a week or so ago the guy there didn’t know what to do with it. I wanted it on growlers but they would have been in the range of $90 ish a fill. Worth it I’d say but it would be a business risk so fair call to him.
Tokyo is an intensely complex beer that everyone who loves a stout should try but treat it more like a fortified or a spirit. This is a beer that is well suited to a winters evening by the fire after a big day drinking red wine. It will cut right through any big rich flavours that are hanging around in your mouth and set up camp in your taste buds. It will also, if over consumed result in you eating a burger shirtless like the Hoff. Bad Bad.
I always like to have a bottle in the fridge, but as I don’t I will have one at Biero tonight.
Cheers D

    Awesome stuff indeed! BrewDog's Tokyo is definitely a truly amazing beer every beer lover should try.I am pretty sure Tokyo won't be one of the $5pint options tonight though. I suspect it will be around $20 for a pot.

    fingers crossed they have a brain fade and its $5. Whatever they charge I'm sure it'll be worth it
