Join us tomorrow in the wee Tasting Room with Curtis from Olde Hickory for a five-beer tasting flight. We’ll be pouring from 5:00-7:00pm.
Hefeweizen: “A Bavarian style wheat ale with hints of banana, bubblegum, coriander and clove. Our Hefe-Weizen is brewed with a special strain of yeast from the Weihenstephaner brewery in Freising, Germany dating back to 1040 AD. Sometimes served with a lemon slice, and that’s ok.”
Piedmont Pils: “A Premium Pilsner Lager Beer brewed with the finest pilsner malts and hops from Germany and the Czech Republic. Piedmont Pilsner is light in color and easy drinking with a clean crisp finish.”
Ruby Lager: “A deep amber hue invokes a refreshing taste in this smooth brew. Slightly nutty, Ruby Lager has a dry finish, leaving one with a satisfying, warm glow, reminiscent of Ruby’s color. Ruby Lager is brewed with choice imported malts and hops carefully blended together yielding a smooth complex taste for the beer drinker who desires more in their beer.”
Death by Hops: “71lbs of high alpha hops were used to make this beer. That’s just over 20 grams of hops used for each pint! DBH was brewed with 2 row barley, Carapils and Crisp Crystal 45 malts and fermented to 7% alc/vol. DBH was hopped with 5 different West Coast hops: Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, Centennial and Cascade. Additionally, DBH was twice dry hopped with different combinations of these hops. The net result is an amazing aroma of ripe juicy fruit mixed in with a bouquet of spring flowers. DBH was brewed to a level of bitterness of 108 IBU’s, and leaves a lingering bitterness; it is, after all, a double IPA!”
Event Horizon: “The Event Horizon- an annual release. We barrel age an imperial stout in oak bourbon barrels, from several bourbon varieties, and blend the results. Dark and rich with bourbon flavors- once this beer grabs you you’ll never escape. Winner of a World Beer Cup (R) 2012 bronze award in the Wood- and Barrel-Aged Strong Stout category.”
Omega Point: “Omega Point is a blend of bourbon barrel aged barley wines. 54 bourbon barrels were used in the blend. Some of them were aging for 7 years. No beer was less than 1 year old. Over the years, each time we brewed Irish Walker we would fill some barrels and set them aside.”
