Thursday Tasting: Uinta Brewing with Dave Dabill 7/23/15

Join us tomorrow in the wee tasting room with Dave Davill of Uinta Brewing. We’ll be sampling five beers, including the new Contrail Witbier.

Contrail Witbier: NEW! “Best of both worlds combining the approachability of many the more common white ales and adds a distinctive floral/spice note provided by the bitter orange peel and coriander that you may find in many craft examples of the style.” [5.6% abv]

Hop Nosh: “Bold and refreshing, this IPA combines an abundance of hops with a smooth malt profile.” [7.3% abv]

Dubhe: “Toasted, chocolaty dark malts align with an astronomical amount of hops. Named Utah’s Centennial Star in 1996, Dubhe (pronounced Doo-bee) illuminates the front of the big dipper from 124 light years away. Dubhe, also known as Alpha Ursae Majoris, is a red giant that appears orange in color and has a mass 4x that of the sun.” [9.2% abv]

Birthday Suit: “Cast aside inhibitions and dive into this year’s Birthday Suit, a sour abbey ale brewed with plums and an authentic Belgian abbey yeast strain that flaunts complexity and charm. A playful combination of sour tanginess and subtle fruit flavors, this Sour Plum bares it all in honor of Uinta’s 22nd Birthday.” [7.6% abv]

Cockeyed Cooper: “Launch into the exquisite flavors of bourbon with splashes of vanilla. Watch for currents of dark chocolate and dried fruit. Generous amounts of hops and malts make for a smooth journey from start to finish. Decadent desserts and aged cheeses make superb companions. [11.1% abv]


Thursday Tasting 7/16/15: Big Boss Brewing (Raleigh, NC)

Join us in the wee tasting room tomorrow from 5:00-7:00 p.m. with Dave Rogers of Big Boss Brewing. We’ll be sampling two of their regular line-up and the small batch beers from the Strange Cargo series.

Bad Penny: “”BAD PENNY dark brown ale is slightly sweet with a caramel and dark fruit finish. A show case of fine English malts, floor-malted the old way. We use pale, chocolate and crystal malts to produce a complex but easy drinking dark ale. Very reminiscent of northern English ales.” [English Brown Ale, 5.5% abv]

Hell’s Belle: “”HELL’S BELLE is a subtle but complex ale that is meant to be a showcase for our favorite Belgian yeast and beautiful Belgian malts. These elements produce a clean, spicy citrus finish. Hell’s Belle remains light and refreshing but still packs a 7% finish.” [Belgian Pale Ale, 7.0% abv]

Saints & Sinners: “Aged in oak foudres for six months, S&S is a Flanders inspired ale that captures a refreshing fruit and oak qualities of the vessel. Brewed with corn from Yates Mill, one of the oldest working stone mills in the country (established around 1756) is right here in Raleigh.” [American Wild Ale, 5.0% abv]

Prometheus: “Dark sour ale aged in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels for one year. Dark malt & chocolate notes blend with an added dimension of raspberry, oak and red wine character for a one of a kind experience.” [American Wild Ale, 8.0% abv]

Aces & Ates: “”ACES & ATES COFFEE STOUT is brewed with ten different malts to create a complex and distinctive beer. We add organic fair-trade coffee, which is specially produced for Big Boss by coffee experts Larry’s Beans.” [American Stout, 8.0% abv]
