Bolsa Mercado is officially a talent hog. It’s great if you happen to be cool (rich?) enough to live in The “fabulous” OC. However, it sucks for those of us who have to walk half a mile through a huge chain grocery store to buy a carton of milk. Or beer.
Deep Ellum Brewery has just released their first (only?) production of “Love Runs Deep” Cherry Chocolate Double Brown Stout (deets below). Think you’ll find it at Tom Thumb? Nope. Bolsa Mercado bought the entire batch. Each 22-ounce bottle is individually numbered and made with red tart and dark sweet cherries and Organic/Fair Trade cocoa nibs. Expect to find all 300 of them on the shelves of Bolsa Mercado during their next Open House on February 11.
If you can’t wait until the 11th to get a food fix from The ‘Cado, head over on February 8. If you are lucky, you may be able to look past talented chef chefs Jeff Harris and Matt Balke and spot the rare, elusive chef Sharon Hage in the kitchen. She will be creating a “Take Home Dinner For Two.” Who knows, by then Bolsa Mercado may have Alan McClure creating Fudgesicles or Grant Achatz doing dishes. Could happen. Pigs fly in Oak Cliff.
CHERRY CHOCOLATE DOUBLE BROWN STOUT –
8% ABV 27 IBUs
Our logical offering for a passionate time of year.
Who says Brewers can’t pluck your heartstrings? We’ll play right to your heart (and
palette and belly) by taking our already smooth and rich Double Brown Stout and taking
out to a night on the town. By adding real Red Tart and Dark Sweet Cherries at the
beginning of fermentation and **(Organic/Fair Trade) cocoa nibs at the end of
conditioning, once a year we treat our Double Brown Stout lavishly. Don’t be a selfish
lover, share with this someone special.
