Eldorado Brewmaster Greg Hinge is featuring a new beer, Ball and Chain Barley Wine, at the Brew Brothers inside the Eldorado Resort Casino. It is a full-bodied ale with a strong, rich malt flavor and moderate to high sweetness that is balanced with noticeable hop flavor and bitterness. The beer gets its name from Hinge’s recently married friend, whom Hinge said wasn’t too fond of the name at first, but quickly played along.
It pairs well with blue cheeses and chocolates, an apt fit for the Brew Brothers’ Bleu Burger with smoked bacon, steak house aioli, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato and blue cheese crumbles, or the Reese’s Peanut Butter Brownie topped with vanilla gelato, chocolate fudge and marshmallow sauce. This winter warmer took about a month to age and comes in at 10.5 percent ABV.
The Brew Brothers’ eight permanent brews are the Big Dog Indiana Pale Ale, Carano Extra, Gold Medal Winner Redhead Amber Ale, Double Down Stout, Wild Card Wheat and Gold Dollar Pale Ale. Food and beer specials are available during happy hour, which runs from 2 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Brew Brothers is open for lunch daily at 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
There’s also live entertainment every night of the week, including live band karaoke on Mondays, DJ Chris English on Brew Club Tuesdays and live bands playing new rock and top 40 hits Wednesday through Sunday and DJ Montague spinning late night Thursday through Saturday. Sunday through Thursday, entertainment starts at 10 p.m. with Friday and Saturday night entertainment beginning at 10:30 p.m.
