Friday Aug 18th
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Join us this Friday evening as we celebrate the last month of Summer with an assortment of adult beverages for you to try. We’ll start off our line-up with COOP ALE WORKS out of Oklahoma City bringing these beers for you to taste:
F5 IPA – earning a 96 points score on RateBeer, the straightforward malt body of this IPA supports the distinctive bouquet of Columbus and Falconers Flight hops that impart citrus, grapefruit and pine notes characteristic of the West Coast style.
SPARE RIB PALE ALE – Big on late-hopped flavor, easy on bitterness, our American Pale Ale has a heaping portion of Columbus and Amarillo hops added after it leaves the brewhouse.
NATIVE AMBER RED IPA – an audacious blend of hops and malt, the caramel and biscuit notes carry the Cascade and Cluster hops through to an enjoyably round finish. The malt complexity proves rich and the dry-hopped character is invigorating.
For the liquors. we’ll be hosting TRES AGAVES TEQUILAS, the Award-Winning, Estate Grown, 100% de Agave Tequila from the actual town of Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico
BLANCO – Vibrant and sweet agave aromas dominate with supporting notes of citrus, pear, and hints of wild mint. A pleasing taste and silky texture make it ideal for sipping or mixing.
REPOSADO – Aged for ~9 months in repurposed Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey barrels. Balanced taste of baked tropical fruits, with hints of citrus, spice, and complementary barrel notes. Ideally balanced and perfect for sipping or mixing.
ANEJO – Aged for ~18 months in repurposed Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey barrels. Smooth multi-layered flavors characterized by smoky sweet caramel and butterscotch, floral tones and hints of rosemary and spice. Wonderfully complex flavors perfect for sipping. Awarded the Chairman’s Trophy at the 2010 Ultimate Spirits Challenge with a score of 97/100.
And for the wines, our sterling rep from Appellations will be bringing these fine wines for you to try:
LAMBERT DE SEYSSEL “PETIT ROYAL” – from the village of Seyssel in the French Alps, this delicious sparkling wine is made from the grapes Molette and Altesse (which dates back to at least 1363 in this area). Offering delightful flavors of alpine flowers, dried fruit, wildflower honey, and a toasty, yeasty note that gives this sparkler an aromatic richness and complexity.
GOTHIC “TELLTALE” ROSE – made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley, this pale pink rose offers flavors of fresh, wild red berries and cherry blossoms joined by a refreshing acidity.
GRAMERCY CELLARS VIOGNIER – this fresh and light white wine from Walla Walla, Washington is fermented 75% in stainless steel to give the wine freshness and 25% in neutral wood to add texture. Fresh ginger, jasmine, honeysuckle, lemongrass, fresh ripe pear, nectarine, honeydew melon are balanced by minerality and a dry hint of oak.
SALVAJE DEL MONCAYO GARNACHA – made from grapes harvested from ancient ‘wild’ bush vines in the mountainous Moncayo end of the Ebro Valley, the palate offers flavors of ripe red fruit, wild berries and a Burgundian minerality, with subtle French oak.
***AND, as an additional treat, the fine makers of Kansas City’s CRAFT BEER JERKY will be here to let you sample their delectable Angus beef jerky. Danny Keuser, an employee at Cinder Block Brewery, and Chase Schaffter of Back Rack BBQ and Catering, both love craft beer and especially jerky. After kicking around ideas for developing a food product, the idea of making beef jerky using local craft beer as an ingredient seemed like a no-brainer to them.
We’ll have their WHEAT BEER JERKY, PORTER BEER JERKY and ZIPLINE IPA JERKY on hand for you to try.
