Two Roads Brewing Company: Lil’ Heaven: Anger Cask

Last night I went to a cask fest, and I managed to find a nice Windowsill there!

If you’ve been following my sill for a while, you know that Two Roads Brewing Company is one of my favorite local breweries. When I heard they were having a cask fest featuring 30 different Two Roads casks and 4 firkins of specialty ciders, I was all in. The festival itself was lots of fun. The beer casks were phenomenal, many of which you can see in the photos above.

For me, the highlight of the night was the set of Heaven or Hell casks. Each set of adjunct ingredients was used—in the same amounts, too—in casks using Two Roads’ Road 2 Ruin DIPA, and Lil’ Heaven Session IPA. The theme was, of course, “which road will you choose?” Most of the time I chose Road 2 Ruin, as it is one of my favorite DIPAs, but sometimes I went with the angel on my shoulder and chose the Lil’ Heaven.

My favorite cask of the night had to be the one in the lead image above. It was called Anger, and it was made with some very hot ingredients—Scorpion Peppers and Carolina Reaper Peppers. How hot are those? Well, a Habanero pepper weighs in at 350 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). A Ghost Pepper weighs in at a range of 850,000 SHU to about 1 Million SHU. The Scorpion peppers? 1.2 Million to 2 Million SHU. And those Reapers are heavy hitters, weighing in at somewhere between 1.4 Million SHU and 2.2 Million SHU. Shit was hot, bro. Like, linger in your throat for 15 minutes hot. But it was such an interesting cask, that I loved it. I did not go back for seconds, though, lol.

Check out the pictures from the fest, and the kickass taster glass they included in the ticket purchase! Only on Instagram!
