Golden Monkey from Victory Brewing on tap at Dale 1891 / Tampa 

Golden Monkey Beer? Yes. It exists. And it is strong, my friends. 

Strong and sensual, this golden, Belgian-style ale glows. The richness of German malts and Belgian yeast are tempered by a sparkling approach and overall light body. Abundant herbal, fruity notes make Golden Monkey one to savor.

With 9.5% ABV it is a strong ale, and full of flavor. Come enlighten your senses with a draught of the Golden Monkey at Dale 1891 Gastro Pub

Cigar City Maduro Brown Ale at Dale 1891 

Cigar City Brewing is a source of pride for anyone living in Florida. This nationally and internationally recognized brewery is located right here in Tampa, Florida, and truly an amazing group of artisans skilled at the fine craft of making beers of all sorts. 

Maduro is a Northern English-style brown ale with some American affectations. Maduro is higher in alcohol than the common English brown ale and features flaked oats in the malt bill which imparts a silky body and works to mesh the roasted, toasted and chocolate components together in Maduro's complex malt profile. The end result is a remarkably full-flavored yet approachable and sessionable brown ale that pairs well with mild to medium cigars.

Tastes: Pours brown in color with notes of caramel, toffee, chocolate and hints of espresso. Flavor has caramel/toffee sweetness is upfront with intermingling notes of chocolate and espresso with a roasted peanut expression in the finish.
