Episode 088 – North Coast Brewing Company Brother Thelonious
Named after – and a tribute to – the game-changing jazz musician Thelonious Monk, North Coast Brewing Company in Fort Brag, CA, puts out the Brother Thelonious Belgian Style Abbey Ale.
This beer wins in multiple ways. Every bottle sold puts money towards the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, to help young Jazz musicians get a proper music education, and the beer itself wins in character as well. Both Johnny and Dave put this in the 90s – a great flavor, if not slightly deceptive at 9.4% ABV.
