Beer Among friends was on tap at Matteo's Public on Tuesday night in Nevada City. For the first time in Ol' Republic Brewery's history they offered up their hand crafted beer to a location other than their own establishment. The Beer titled Dark Matter was the pour which was enjoyed by a large crowd of faithful patrons.

Dark Matter 
Black Scotch Ale
6.8% ABV
29 IBUs
ol' Republic Brewery's version of this Scottish classic is a magical purple-hued black ale with a light mocha-colored head, and looks stunning served in its traditiona
l thistle shaped glass. Created using 12 different malts this 90 shilling* has a rich silky mouthfeel, bold malt flavors and aromas, and a creamy finish. Overall hop character is low, allowing its toffee and caramel malt profile to be the highlight along with a subtle smoky character specific to this beer style.
* A nomenclature based on the now obsolete UK shilling currency.

The beer is very smooth with a hint of toffee and caramel. This is an arrangement between friends that you are sure to enjoy. It is that good.
