Tasting day! Jordan from Mother Earth Brewing in Kinston, NC joins us tonight for a five-beer flight (plus some goodies, maybe?), so drop by between 5:00-7:00 p.m. this evening and check out what’s happening on the eastern part of our state.

Park Day Bohemian-style Pilsner: “Our traditional Bohemian style Pilsner is brewed with Weyermann Bohemian Pilsner malt and tettnang hops. Straw in color, this light-bodied, 4.8% session beer, offers a floral malty nose and a clean, crisp, malty hop taste. Enjoy Park Day for a day in the park or all year long.”

Endless River Kolsch: “A clean, crisp beer, Kolsch offers a very slight fruity flavor and aroma. It is light gold in color, with a delicate head. This light-bodied beer appeals to nearly everyone who samples it. Expect to enjoy a slight tang in the finish.”

Sisters of the Moon IPA: “Made with hops grown in the good ‘ol USA… you’ll proudly support American farmers when you drink this beer! Light copper in color, it has an intense hop aroma and strong hop bitterness. Our hopback process uses fresh hop cones to take this IPA to unexpected places. Prepare for a mouthful of flavor.”

Dark Cloud Dunkel Lager: “Steeped in a long history dating back hundreds of years, this old-fashioned beer is again in vogue. Lager is the German word meaning ‘to store,’ so this beer ages three times longer than our ales do. ‘Dunkel’ means dark in German, but don’t let the color fool you, it is by no means heavy, overbearing or bitter. In fact, it proves to be a very drinkable session beer.”

Tripel Overhead (Bourbon Barrel): “The flavors of our Belgian-style tripel keep rollin’ in; filling your mouth with perfect peeling waves of unexpected pleasure. Respectfully aged in seasoned bourbon barrels, this beer offers you an amazing zest, balanced with flavors of warming oak. The result? A complex sipping beer that finishes smooth and sweet, giving you a glide you won’t soon forget.”
