Casks at Savanah’s Dublin Underground

 For those of you who don't read George de Piro's Beer Nut Blog here is something interesting.
On Thursday, January 20th, Savanah’s Dublin Underground will have three cask beers from BrewDog, a small Scottish brewery with a funky-looking but difficult to navigate website. The casks will be tapped at about 4:00 p.m. I plan on going to work early so I can duck out in time to get a pint or two before dinner.
The beers will be Dogma Scottish Ale, Paradox Arran Imperial Stout aged in Isle of Arran Whiskey casks, and Hardcore IPA, which recieved a gold in the Imperial IPA category at the World Beer Cup in 2010.
I’m not  a big fan of whisky barrel-aged beers (the whisky flavor always obscures the beer too much for me), so I might skip that one, but the others sound intriguing. It’s likely that after I have the first two, I’ll at least get a half pint of the Imperial Stout. We’ll see.
