elis tap party

On Wednesday August 30th 2014 we held the final judging for the second Eli’s Restaurant Group/Maltose Express Home Brewing Contest at Eli’s on Whitney in Hamden.  This was a great event with food provided by Eli’s and beer provided by 15 breweries, including many from Connecticut.

We had 90 entries and many great beers.  Jason Burke took home the grand prize with his Imperial IPA which was recently brewed by Veracious Brewing Company.

The Imperial IPA had a great aroma and a well balanced hop profile featuring Amarillo, Citra and Simcoe and it will be featured on Tap at all Eli’s locations starting on Monday, January 25th, 2016 and in the Veracious tap room.

There will be a Tap Launch Party at Eli’s in Orange on Monday, January 25th from 6pm to 8pm.  Eli’s will have 1/2 price appetizers, $4 pints of Jason’s DIPA and raffle prizes.  Please stop in and congratulate Jason and taste his DIPA!  Maltose and Veracious personnel will be there to celebrate with Jason.  Stop by and hang out with us!
