The Due South Brewery Tap Takeoever will feature the Caramel Cream Ale & UXO American Strong Ale! Read more about both brews in their own words below:

Caramel Cream Ale (ABV=5.0%  IBU=18): Our Caramel Cream Ale was developed to showcase the wonderful caramel notes in dark crystal malts. In addition to the malt complexity and creamy mouthfeel, this beer finishes with a hint of vanilla. There are no substitutes for this very special American Ale.

Interesting Fact: The unforgettable flavor of this beer is the result of 100?s of test brews to refine the recipe and method. Head brewer and brewery owner, Mike Halker, brewed this beer for his wife Jodi who, for 2 years, kept saying “almost” until he worked his magic and made it the beer it is today.

UXO American Strong Ale (ABV = 8.0% IBU = 67): UXO is an American Strong Ale paying homage to Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Technicians that have served in the US Military. UXO is a term EOD Techs use meaning unexploded ordnance.

The beer is a big one, clocking in at 8% ABV. At 67 IBU’s, it also has plenty of hops.  A earthy hop bite comes across first followed by a caramel malt backbone.  It finishes with a nice bitterness that lingers for a few minutes on the palette.

Interesting Fact: Mike Halker, founder and head brewer at Due South chose to brew this beer for a simple reason – he’s a former EOD Tech himself. He served with the 61st EOD out of Fort Sill, OK.  A portion of the proceeds will go to the EOD Warrior Foundation.
