Agave Nagila Release Party at CBC
Cambridge Brewing Company – We are excited to announce that we’ll be releasing our latest special Barrel Cellar beer, Agave Nagila, on Friday 2/23! This strong Belgian blonde ale was aged for one year in tequila barrels with our wild yeast culture, where it picked up just a little funk and a little tartness along with some nice oak and tequila flavors. We then added Kosher salt and fresh lime zest – the Brew Crew zested 360 whole limes over the course of one looong day – before the beer was bottled and kegged. It’s an amazing beer with obvious margarita intentions, terrific balance, and a ton of fun. Join us for a night of delicious beer, taco dinner specials, and even a mariachi band! We will release the beer at CBC on tap and have bottles ready for sale at 5:00pm.
