Evansville restaurants: giftable beers, ugly sweater party – Courier & Press
EVANSVILLE — We’re bringing you Tri-State restaurant happenings and food news you need to know. Here’s the latest.
New Smoothie bar coming to Franklin St.
Blenderz Smoothie and Yogurt Bar will be opening a second location on Franklin Street by the end of December. The shop specializes in fruit and protein smoothies with optional supplements and add-ins from muscle builders to vitamins and fiber. Also on the menu are frozen yogurt with toppings, acai bowls, yogurt parfaits and organic oatmeal.
Blenderz is at 4301 N. First Ave.; 812-401-2626. The new location will be at 2110 W. Franklin St.
Limited release double Bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout available for Christmas
Dark Dimitri is a special limited-release beer you’ll want to watch for at local Liquor Locker stores. It’s a Russian Imperial Stout with vanilla brewed by Damsel Brew Pub, double Bourbon barrel aged–first in a Green River Distilling barrel from Owensboro, then finished in the Liquor Locker’s own private selection George Remus barrel–and bottled at Damsel. Only 300 bottles are available.
This beer will only become better with age, and brewer John Mills reports he has some similar beers that are magnificent at 14 years old.
Damsel’s Katya, available at the brewery, is a single Bourbon barrel aged Stout without vanilla… this year, rather than a Russian Imperial Stout, it is dubbed a Ukranian Anti-Imperial Stout. Both would make fantastic gifts that could be saved to enjoy for Christmases to come.
The Liquor Locker has 10 locations around Evansville. Damsel Brew Pub is at 812-909-1956.
