Dan of Gone Mild is a home-beer-brewing wizard. I tasted a few of his creations awhile back and was impressed. So were the people at 75th Street Brewery, where Dan won a home-brewing contest back in October.

As his prize, 75th Street Brewery let Dan make his winning recipe on a grand scale. Hundreds of gallons of Triple Sugar Tripel ("200+ gallons of beer! My beer!" as Dan puts it).

Tonight is the tapping of that Triple Sugar Tripel.

Dan has turned the unveiling into a charity benefit for the Central City School Fund. For every glass of beer 75th Street sells, they'll donate 50 cents to the fund. Dan has also set up a jar for a year-end donation.

The event starts at 5 p.m. As for what the Triple Sugar Tripel tastes like, Dan says he's not sure. He hasn't had the opportunity to taste it but it's a Belgian that he expects "will be sweet, with a strong note of honey flavor."

I was at 75th Street Brewery on Saturday and tried unsuccessfully to get the bartender to let me take an early sip. The bartender said the beer was in "wine range" as far as alcohol percentage but Dan pegs it at only 9 percent alcohol. Either way, that's a strong beer.
