Days of the Beer, January 23

The beer for today is Flossmoor Station Killer Kapowski.

On January 23, 1974, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen was born. Tiffani is best known for her roles as Valerie Malone in Beverly Hills, 90210; and as Kelly Kapowski in Saved by the Bell.

She was born in Long Beach, California. He uncle Roger Ernest attended college with Steven Spielberg and suggested to her, that she enter show business.

In 1987, Thiessen was crowned Miss Junior America. She won Teen magazine's "Great Model Search" in 1988. From 1989 to 1994, she played Kelly Kapowski on both Saved by the Bell, and Saved by the Bell: The College Years.

As to the beer:

Killer Kapowski is the bottled version of Flossmoor Station's Killer Kowalski. Flossmoor Station decided to bottle their Baltic Porter, and they submitted the label for government approval. The government wanted to ensure that Flossmoor had the rights to the name (apparently it only matters for bottle labels) and asked that they change it. Florrmoor changed the name to Killer Kapowski.

Our deep, dark, full-bodied lager. A slightly bittersweet chocolate aroma with a malty body that hints at dark fruits. It’s complex and very enjoyable with a touch of roast finish. This may be the best beer we make all year long. The bottled version is called Killer Kapowski.
If you look at the label, it has a wrestling ring on it, which makes more sense for the Killer Kowalski name, but everyone knows the beer is Killer Kowalski, so why really worry about it.

I had Killer Kowalski on March 29, 2008; and will be picking up a bottle or two of this in the near future. The Killer Kapowski release date is set for Feb 7, at 1 p.m. So, you can't have it yet. It will be sold for $10 a bottle.

Since you have to wait until Feburary 7, go out to Flossmoor and have a Killer Kowalski (on draft; if it is on draft now), and think of all the good times that you had watching Saved by the Bell.

Yes, this is the second girl from Saved by the Bell to have a beer day.
