That’s right! As part of Asheville Beer Week, Bruisin’ Ales and Zambra tapas are pairing up for an a la carte evening of Beer Cocktails on Thursday, May 31, when the lounge opens at 4:00 p.m. Joshua Bailey will be your mixologist this evening. Better yet, we’ve brought in spirits from the distillers at popular breweries, Dogfish Head, New Holland Brewing, and Rogue Ales. No fixed price, just show up and hang with us at the bar! (If you plan to stay for dinner, reservations are recommended. (828) 232-1060.)
What is BeerMixology?
In its most basic definition, beer mixology is the art or skill of crafting and mixing cocktails that use beer as an ingredient. Some purists in the beer industry might argue that beer is, in itself, a perfectly crafted cocktail of barley, hops, yeast, water, and potentially other additives. Conversely, some mixology purists might argue that flavor profile of beer is not ideal and does not, in fact, have chemistry with spirits. Although neither views are wrong and everyone is entitled to their own opinions, our goal here at Beer Mixology is to explore the relationship between beer and spirits and share our findings and experiments with the world!
