Tomorrow! Natty Greene’s in the Tasting Room. We’ve got Taylor McDermott from the brewery on-hand to serve you a flight and answer any questions. Join us tomorrow from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

Southern Pale Ale: “A medium-bodied, deep golden ale with distinct, bitter character and a hoppy, piney, citrus finish.”

Buckshot Amber: “A full-bodied amber ale with rich, smooth flavor and notes of caramel and toffee.”

Elm Street IPA: “Smooth,easy-drinking English-style India Pale Ale, crisp on the palate with a subtle aroma of East Kent Golding hop flowers.”

Cannonball Double IPA: “Strong-style India Pale Ale, deep copper in color witha a big, malty, hoppy palate and dry hopped with Centennial & Antanum for a spicy, citrus aroma. What better name for a big, strong beer than one of the biggest, strongest weapons of the Revolutionary War—the cannonball.”

All that’s new & tasty!

Thursday Tasting 4/4/13, 5-7pm: Pisgah Brewing Company

Posted Apr 03, 2013 in Beer, Breweries, Events, Goings on, Seasonals

Pisgah Brewing Company is in the Tasting Room tomorrow from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Here’s what’s on deck for the flight:

Spring Wheat Hefe: “Brewed with 64% malted white wheat and bittered with the American noble hop Mt Hood, the pale orange hue compliments zesty citrus notes in this unfiltered Spring Wheat Ale. Designed by the Pisgah Brewers to be a refreshingly light ale for the coming spring months, enjoy on tap and in growlers.”

Equinox: “This harvest-style ale celebrates the bounty of the seasons. Deep mahogany in color and evenly hopped, released now for the first day of spring. This beer comes in at a comfortable 7.5% abv.  Happy Equinox everybody!”

Valdez: “Adhering to the strict philosophy of the Pisgah brewers, this mouth watering coffee stout is brewed just miles downstream from America’s most beautiful watershed. Brewed with coffee beans from Dynamite Coffee Roasters, and weighing in at a respectable 6.8% abv, the aroma of fresh coffee leaps from the glass, and finishes slightly dry. Treat yourself to the finest coffee stout this season. Unfiltered for your enjoyment.”

Baptista: “This Belgian Noel takes its name from Jan Baptista Van Helmont, the Flemish chemist and physician who first discovered CO2 and coined the word ‘gas’ by recognizing the existence of gases distinct from air. This energy luminary was the founder of pneumatic chemistry and also the first to bridge alchemy and early chemistry. Hats off to the man behind the bubble! Made with homemade candy sugar.
