Thursday Tasting: Bottles of Green Man Brewing! 3/21 5-7pm

If you’ve been living under a rock (or a St. Paddy’s haze), then you should know that Green Man Brewing released their first round of bottles over the weekend with a big, fat party at the brewery. Did you miss it? Not to worry! We have you covered. Tomorrow, March 21, from 5:00-7:00 p.m., we’ll be sampling the new bottles as they hit the market for the first time.

Green Man ESB: “Brewed since 1997, Green Man ESB is one of our signature brews, with its toasted malt flavor and pleasant finishing sweetness. Its eminently drinkable style comes from a blend of British-grown malts balanced with the earthy spiciness of hand-selected premium U.S. hops. Boasting an ample, nutty aroma, and a broad, authoritative flavor, Green Man ESB combines the best of English tradition with American style.”

Green Man Porter: “Green Man Porter is a delicious, full-bodied ale rich in flavor, yet easy to drink, with a creamy, smooth mouth feel. The slight hop bitterness only enhances the distinctive chocolate and roasted finish to come. Ruddy brown in color, Green Man Porter offers a bittersweet balance of malt and hops with a light cream finish. It continues to reap accolades and medals from those who know best.”

Green Man IPA: “A legendary India Pale Ale, the Green Man IPA is very hoppy with a properly balanced malt body. Brewed with generous hop additions in our kettle to give it a wonderful bitterness, it’s then late-kettle hopped to create a pleasant, floral nose. The “maltiness” is derived from traditional British malt. Its rich flavor stands up to the hops that would otherwise dominate this beer. Green Man IPA is truly an authentic version of an Indian Pale Ale, with a twist that makes it uniquely our own.”

Thursday Tasting: Stoudt’s Brewing Company 3/7/13

Stoudt’s Brewery from eastern Pennsylvania will be here for tomorrow’s evening tasting. Join us for this lineup!

Stoudt’s Gold (Munich Helles Lager): “This golden ‘Helles’ style beer is smooth, medium-bodied and always satisfying. Brewed with the finest imported 2-row malt and German noble hops, Stoudt’s Gold Lager is widely recognized as one of the finest German-style beers brewed in America.” [5.0% abv]

Stoudt’s Pils: “The driest and most delicate of our lagers. Stoudt’s Pils is characteristic of the traditional European Pilseners. Straw-yellow and assertively hopped with Saaz hops, this frequent medal winner has a refreshing bitterness and refined hop aroma.” [4.7% abv]

Stoudt’s Double IPA: “Stoudt’s Double IPA is a strong, full-bodied ale with an intense hop character and deep golden color. This unusual brew is characteristic of the newly recognized style of extremely hoppy and malty ales of American origin. The Double IPA is our strongest beer with an alcohol of over 10% abv and bitterness of more than 75 IBU’s. Multiple kettle hop additions and generous dry hopping contribute to the powerful yet smooth and fragrant hop character of this beer.” [10% abv]

Stoudt’s Fat Dog Imperial Stout: “This unique ale merges the smooth and complex richness of an Oatmeal Stout with the assertive hoppiness of Imperial Stout. Fat Dog has an inviting silky-black color, a prominent roasted malt character, and a chocolatey, coffee-like finish.” [9.0% abv]
