Friday Mar 9th
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Join us this Big 12 Conference Friday as we bring in a wide array of adult beverages for you to sample. We’ll tip off the tastings with beers from Missouri’s own MOTHER’S BREWING CO. who are bringing these selections for you to try:
TROP TOP – Heavily hopped with Citra and Mosaic late in the whirlpool and in the dry hop, this refreshing pale has a big fruity hop punch with a very restrained bitterness. The malt body is light with a mild sweetness to round out this juicy, tropical fruity pale.
LIME GOSE – Kettle souring with lactobacillus lays down tart acidity, enhanced with kaffir lime leaves, lime zest, and salt. It gets a final kick with fresh lime juice post fermentation. The finished beer is light, bright, and vigorously quenching.
THREE BLIND MICE – this beautiful brown beer is medium-bodied with caramel, toffee, and subtle chocolate malt flavors—all balanced by moderate hop notes and a clean, dry finish.
Foe the liquor, our wonderful rep from Major Brands will be bringing the new-to-the-area BORN AND BRED VODKA (the brand that actor Channing Tatum launched). from Grand Teton Distillery in Idaho. Founded in 2011, the Grand Teton Distillery has received numerous accolades for their spirits. Master Distiller John Boczar uses local Idaho potatoes to craft a flavorful vodka.
Twenty-times distilled, it’s prepared in small batches and nourished by the unspoiled glacial water that flows from the Grand Teton Mountains, giving Born and Bred a clean, crisp taste that is perfect for neat or “on the rocks” savoring as well as mixing. Minerally, fruity aromas give way to flavors of apple juice and candy wrapper with a round, soft, dry light-to-medium body and a peppery finish. A robust, spicy vodka with a sweet underbelly.
And for the wines, our exceptional rep from Major Brands will also be bringing these for you to try:
LOLA PROSECCO – this Italian sparkling wine is simply fresh and perky, and light with crisp apple and pear flavors and subtle background layers of citrus, peach and a mineral grassiness with a crisp, dry finish.
MAISON L’ENVOYE LE SAINT ROSE – earning a score of 90 points from Wine.com, this pale Beaujolais rose is bright, energetic and mouthwatering with fresh summer fruits and floral notes supported by a steely mineral backbone. The wine’s juicy natural acidity is complemented by an underlying creaminess that enlivens the mouthfeel and delivers balance to the long and luscious finish.
CARTLIDGE & BROWNE PINOT NOIR – this North Coast, Cali wine offers flavors of bold cherries, raspberries and blackberries that purr with vanilla meringue and toasty oak notes. Warming on the tongue, baking spice and stone-like minerality conclude in a juicy, firm finish.
IRONSTONE OBSESSION SYMPHONY – earning a score of 91 points from Wine.com, this white blend offers a smooth palate, nice sweetness, and pleasing tropical stone fruit flavors along with peaches, pineapple and a hint of ginger, finishing off crisp and clean.
EVODIA OLD VINE GARNACHA – earning a score of 90 points from Robert Parker, this blend of 90% Garnache and 10% Syrah is an intensely fruity wine with loads of the taste of blueberry and black currant fruit, a smooth texture with hints of spice and minerality, and a pure, fruit-filled finish.
