Nemesis Release Party

The Good Life
1039 Park Blvd.
Massapequa Park, NY, 11762

Yet another exclusive goodie from The Good Life, easily the beer bar droppin’ the most hammerz on Long Island in recent months.

This one goes live on Wednesday, 9/1 at 8:00PM, and celebrates the 2010 edition of Founders Brewing Company’s super-rare, super-limited annual Nemesis series.

2009 saw the initial release of Nemesis disguised as a Wheatwine aged in bourbon barrels that were previously used to age maple syrup. However, since each year brings about a new version of the beer, let us wave farewell to the old dude. Here is the description for 2010’s edition, first announced on The Wine & Cheese Place:

The 2010 release of Nemesis is best described by our brewing team as ‘a dark barley wine that pours black with a subtle mahogany hue. Brewed with 5 malts and no shortage of hops for a pleasantly bitter booming flavor. Roasty and toasty with a multitude of tastes that melts on your tongue.‘”

If that wasn’t enough, TGL will also be tapping Founders’ Canadian Breakfast Stout, a variation of their standard Breakfast Stout that again, was aged in bourbon and maple (the Canadian kind) harmony.

Don’t expect both, or any, to last through the evening.
