I love it when locals pay homage to locals. The Brass Tap (7808 W. Layton Ave.) is giving 18 of its taps over to the talented folks at Eagle Park Brewing starting at 4 p.m. A pair of new hazy IPAs are on the menu, and I was fortunate enough to try them both over the weekend. The outstanding Goon Juice has a nice juicy tropical flavor with a hint of dank bitterness. Juice Grenade, a collaboration with Neenah’s Lion’s Tale Brewing, is a dangerously drinkable juicy triple IPA with a potent 10% ABV.
