440 Pepper Smoker Back at Original Gravity

One of my favorite beers returns tonight to Original Gravity. It is their 440 Pepper Smoker. Brad brews this beer with German smoked malts then adds fresh jalapenos throughout the brewing process. Both of these flavors are perfectly balanced so that they never overwhelm each other. It is a great beer.

I am trying to figure out when I am going to go to pick up a growler of this beer. It is harder than one might think because it’s 6:30 in the morning and I have decided to quit drinking coffee on work days.

Here are the details from their website…

  1. I love a well done chili beer, so I may have to chck this out!
    How are their other beers? I have not been there since the week that they opened.

  2. Definitely go back and give them another try. I like the Belgian Training Wheels which is a good session beer and the 440 is my favorite of their rotating taps.

  3. I’m drinking it right now.

    Much more smoke than I remember. It’s like bacon wrapped in love.

    Stefanos says they will have it at Slows (and other places that carry OG beer).

  4. I know what you’re saying. I’m hoping that Harbor Inn and Ale in Monroe gets a keg of it so that the beer will 20 minutes closer. They also have a carry out license which makes me wonder, is it legal for them to fill my growler? I have never see anyone fill one at a place other than a brewery.

  5. I know Hopcat and Old Chicago fill growlers. I think Forans does too. I used to get growlers of Huma at Old Chicago long before Shorts started bottling.

  6. I think I have seen a Hopcat growler but I figured it was filled with their own beer. I didn’t know Old Chicago would fill one. Next time I go up that way I will stop to drink at Oak Cafe and fill a growlers up at OC and Fort Street. I wonder if the label on the growler needs to correspond with the beer in that growler? If so my extensive growler collection just came in handy.
