Atlantic City Beer Week is going down! This extra amazing event will take place at Caesars Atlantic City, Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, Showboat Atlantic City and Bally’s Atlantic City April 4th through April 12th. We’ll give you all the 411 in a sec, but first, check out the Top 6 Best Named Beers we hope to see from Atlantic City Beer Week participating breweries.

In no particular order:

1. Bitches Brew from Dogfish Head Brewery

Bitches Brew

All you beer fanatics knew we were gonna say this one, didn’t you? Named after the popular 1970 Miles Davis album, the bottle is adorned with the respective album artwork. This brew is a dark one with “three threads of imperial stout and one thread of honey beer with gesho root”. It’s the avant-garde of beers and likewise is only available in limited quantities. The experts say that Bitches Brew goes best with chilli, spicy curry chicken and creamy blue cheese.


2. Trogenator Double Bock from Troegs Brewing Company

Trogenator Double Bock

If you could hear us right now, you would know that we are speaking in our best Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator voice because that’s what the word Trogenator brings to mind. Is it a robot? Is it a super hero? No, it’s a dark lager, ya’ll. The nose on it is said to be a “bready malt”. This bronze beauty can keep you full for a good period of time. As Troegs says, the Trogenator gives you “warmth and nourishment all throughout the year”. That’s right, it’s available all year long. And you can taste a little spice on it. Best food pairings for this one are beef and sweet desserts sans chocolate.


3. Mama’s Little Yella Pils from Oskar Blues Brewery

Mama's Little Yella Pils

Pilsner = type of pale lager. And we’re guessing this one is yella. LOLz. Funny. It’s made with “100% pale malt, German specialty malts and Saaz hops”. Not too heavy and refreshing. Good for this time of the year and a nice go-to anytime/any day beer.


4. Old Chub Scotch Ale from Oskar Blues Brewery

Old Chub

Old Chub. These people are geniuses, we tell ya! Made with a boatload of grains, malted barley and “beechwood smoked malt”. Dark and sweet. Think all of your favs – chocolate, coffee…need we say more? Oh yeah, caramel. Hence the old chub, we guess. And apparently is a little smokey on the last gulp. Supposedly great with most buttery cheeses and smoked meats.


5. Merry Monks by Weyerbacher Brewery

Merry Monks

Are monks merry? We guess so! And do they like beer? Looks like it! Whatever the case, this one is a Belgian style Tripel with a creamy texture due to a little yeast and sugar added before bottling. Tastebuds detect a little banana here and the finish is a little dry. If you’re into the dry, just age it a bit. Don’t dig in right away. Merry Monks is available all year long. Said to be good with Meditteranean cuisine, sharp cheeses and pork!


6. Honkers Ale by Goose Island

Honkers Ale

Beep, beep. Honk, honk! Make room for this English style ale. Fruity to the nose and rich and malty to the tummy. This is probably because it is made with 2 row, caramel, and roasted wheat barley malts. Honkers is another year round beer and is best with a burger or fish and chips if you want to get down with the culture of the ale.


Now that you got through our childish behavior of funny beer names, let us fill you in on the details. Atlantic City Beer Week will feature special beer selections, pairings, dinners and demonstrations at Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City properties. Browse details by property:
