Beer Quicky: Brugge on tap

One of the nice things about living on West St. -- and there aren't many -- is that I basically have a superhighway between my home and Spencer's Stadium Tavern. They've got 8 frequently rotated taps -- except for the one Old Style tap -- and a nice range of bottles also available. My wife and I popped in there for a quick beer this evening -- Bell's Special Double Cream Stout (thanks to Hoosier Beer Geek for the tip) -- and chatted for a little bit with head bartender/beer guru Dustin. The first thing he let us know is that Left Hand Milk Stout will be on tap very soon. I'm a big fan of that beer and have never had it on tap, so I'll be back to try that in the near future.

The bigger detail he let us know is that they will have Brugge Beer on tap, though only one beer at a time. Spencer's will be one of only 5 or 6 bars in the area serving Brugge beers. He said we can (hopefully) expect it to be available sometime next week.

First, thanks for the shout-out.

Second, I am also excited for the Milk Stout. They've had it on tap at Shallos for a while, though I am not sure it's still there. It's wonderful, so I am glad that it's coming to Spencer's.

Hey gina, thanks for stopping by! Can't wait to stop by Spencer's this week to grab some Milk Stout and hopefully some Brugge as well.

Side note: Dustin said the Brugge kegs won't be cheep -- $80 per 5 gallons. For comparison, I think he said 15 gallon kegs from Bells go for $130 or so, depending on the style.

15 gallons is about 120 pints, so the actual beer costs about $1/pint. 5 gallons is 40 pints, so the Brugge beer is about $2/pint. After Spencer's profit, I'm guessing Brugge pints are going to be in the $5 range, but hopefully I'm wrong.
