Drinkin’ with Randall
The good folks over at Wild Mike’s (Shady Ln. location) will be officially hooking up their Randall the Enamel Animal on Tuesday night (3/19). Who in the hell is Randall the Enamel Animal? Not who, but what. Randall is a forward-thinking, flavor-infusing device created by Dogfish Head Brewery. Essentially, it provides a chamber to hold a flavoring agent (hops, wood chips, peppers, whatever…) which is then filled with beer so that it makes direct contact and extracts that flavor into the beer poured into your glass. It’s taking an ordinary beer and giving it a roundhouse kick to the face of flavor. Here is a great video of the Randal in action to give you an idea.
As I said, Wild Mike’s will be firing it up this Tuesday night with a special treat! Breckenridge Vanilla Porter infused with graham crackers and chocolate chips. Yep! This should be a lot like drinking the world’s best s’more! To my knowledge, this is the only one in the city operating and it really provides a unique beer experience that you won’t want to miss. I’m hopeful that this is the beginning of a series as they start crafting a variety of Randal recipes – so keep checking back here for more info.
