Unchained Release Party at the Nook

NOOK_unchained__14_4__345x480_

Don’t get across the river as often as you’d like? Make up for it with a thoroughly St. Paul-centric evening at the Nook. They’re tapping Summit’s latest adventurous creation, Unchained #14: Biere de Garde, and throwing a party at the Nook to celebrate. Jeff Williamson, Summit brewmaster and Unchained creator, will be on hand to toast the first mugs heralding cooler climes. Unchained #14 is a French farmhouse style ale with more malt than hop, perfect for a windswept fall. Dangerously easy to drink thanks to tones of caramel and toasty toffee, it’s a perfect match to spice up your oozing ‘Luce while you wait for a Joe Mauer spotting. One can hope. The occasion calls for $2.50 pints of anything Summit at the Nook. Because if you can’t celebrate a great beer, what’s left? 4:14 p.m. Free. —EK
