Friday July 6th
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Join us this post-4th of July Friday evening for a tasting full of adult beverages designed to beat the Summer heat. We’ll be kicking off the proceedings with hometown favorite BOULEVARD BREWING as they bring some keep-you-cool favorites for you to try:
GINGER LEMON RADLER – a zesty, refreshing take on the tradition of mixing beer with soda or lemonade to create a light, thirst-quenching beverage ideal for warm weather.
JAM BAND BERRY ALE – Accompanying a simple malt base, blueberry, raspberry and tart cherry play in perfect harmony to create a slightly tart ale that sings with ripe, bursting fruit flavor.
TROPICAL PALE ALE – their well-balanced pale ale with the bright refreshing flavors of grapefruit and passion fruit accented by juicy, citrusy hops.
AMERICAN KOLSCH – featuring a base composed of European pilsner malt, pale malt and a touch of malted wheat showcasing herbal, citrusy notes from Saaz and Saphir hops, this light and refreshing beer delivers a honey-like malt sweetness that gives way to a crisp, clean finish with a touch of lingering herbal/citrusy flavor.
For the liquor, our friends from McCORMICK/360 will be bringing their HUSSONG TEQUILA line for you to sample:
REPOSADO – made in Jalisco from 100% blue weber agave. It is aged 5 months in oak barrels previously used for aging bourbon. Distilled twice, hand-bottled in clay jugs and cork-sealed, it carries the legacy of Juan Hussong’s handmade tequila from “The Cinderella of the Pacific,” the coastal city of Ensenada, Mexico.
PLATINUM ANEJO – Aged in bourbon barrels for 15 months to add both complexity and flavor and then filtered to give it a crystal clear appearance.
And for the wines, we’ll have a line-up for you to sample that’s packed with favorites for warm weather drinking:
RUFFINO PROSECCO ROSE – fresh and fragrant with notes of strawberry and slight hints of rose petals. On the palate this wine has elegant bubbles and refreshing acidity, offering alluring flavors of delicate red berries and white fruits that linger through the finish.
BORSAO ROSE – Made from 100% Grenache grapes, this Spanish rose is crisp, elegant and light-bodied offering hints of strawberry, melon, tropical fruit with just a touch of peppery on the finish.
GAZELA VINHO VERDE – A light and refreshing Portuguese wine with a very soft citrine yellow color and slight fizz that stimulates the palate. An aromatic, flavorful bouquet, and notes of tropical fruit. Well balanced with a slight touch of sugar.
PAMPLUNE GRAPEFRUIT ROSE – This off-dry style rose blends the vivacity of grapefruit and a little bit of peach with the wine’s natural crispness to give it a feeling of freshness and refinement. An explosion of fruits with an elegant touch of bitter sweetness makes it perfect for drinking on a hot day (like grapefruit Stiegl-Radler).
CODICE TEMPRANILLO – medium-bodied with a good equilibrium of red fruit flavors with light tannins and acidity. Finishes with notes of raspberry, vanilla and light wood spice.
