Drink "Tebow," a onetime only beer from Wynkoop Brewing that has righteous character
The Wynkoop Brewing Company has had some fun over the past year naming some of the one-keg-only beers that it serves as part of its Firkin Friday program.
Remember Weiner's Wood Oak-Aged IPA, which the brewery named for a certain former New York Congressman?
Now you can try something with a namesake a little closer to home. Today at 5 p.m., the brewery will tap Tebow, which is Cowtown Milk Stout -- one of the brewery's staples -- conditioned in a five-gallon cask with raspberry puree and toasted cacao nibs.
"It's a lovable, attractive beer, stout but a little sweet, muscular but approachable. With righteous character and an exciting, surprising finish," is how the brewery describes it.
Sounds like anyone you know?
Well, then how about this: While the ABV is only 4.8 percent, if you have too many, it will knock you on your ass just like opposing teams have knocked poor Tim Tebow -- the Denver Broncos tenuously starting quarterback -- on his.
"However," adds brewery spokesman Marty Jones, "It's so good you'll drop to one knee on the first taste."
