Friday Sept 22nd
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Join us for our first Friday tasting of the Fall as we set out a selection of adult beverages that’ll ease you into the new season. We’ll kick off the tastings with beers from Colorado’s ODELL BREWING who’ll be bringing these selections for you to try:
RUPTURE – earning a 94 score on RateBeer, in grinding the whole hop, they “rupture” the lupulin inside – releasing the oils that give the beer its flavor and leaving you a beer that’s fresh and aromatic, with a bright hoppy character.
IPA – earning a 98 score on RateBeer, this bold and flavorful beer includes new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character.
SUNNY RAIN – a golden, tart, American wild ale that’s light, with bitter and sweet hoppiness, and a citrusy lemon and tangerine refreshing flavor. An easy-drinking seasonal favorite.
OKTOBERFEST – brewed with biscuity sweet Munich malts and spicy, herbal noble hops, this beer combines generous amounts of hop bitterness balanced with the flavor sweetness of Honey and Vienna malts.
For the cocktails, our rep from BOOZY BOTANICALS will be combining various liquors in with these botanical simple syrup mixers of theirs that are also perfect for mixing with sparkling water, lemonade, tea or coffee:
ROSEMARY MINT – a delicate balance between warm and crisp, earthy honey sweetness, herbal and savory.
CARDAMOM SPICE – a curry inspired blend of 6 spices, wrapped in a bouquet of orange blossom and licorice vines.
GINGER HISBISCUS – vibrant, floral, sweet tartness and subtle ginger notes give your cocktails a refreshing lift.
THREE PEPPER – this Sweet Heat blend of Jalapeño, Anaheim and Serrano Pepper is spicy and herbaceous.
CLASSIC ROSE – deliciously aromatic with the floral taste of rose petals and a smooth honeyed finish.
LAVENDER EARL GREY – a flavorful combination of lavender and bergamot floral tastes in an earl grey tea syrup.
And for the wines, our wonderful rep from Vintegrity will be bringing this selection for you to sample:
MEYER FAMILY YORKVILLE HIGHLANDS DRY ROSE – made from 100% syrah, this delicious wine offers elegant flavors of watermelon and light citrus that give way to fresh shortbread with a lemon finish along with a light syrah muskiness.
ORIN SWIFT “LOCATION E” – A blend of Grenache/Garnacha, Tempranillo, Monastrell, and Carignan/Cariñena. This amazing wine is rich with youthful berry compote, floral, and plum flavors, complimented with bright acidity. The finish is expansive and pleasing with a persistent mocha tinge and silky tannins.
BUTTER CHARDONNAY – rich, bold and luscious, this is an easy-to-love creamy California Chardonnay that offers flavors of juicy, ripe, stone fruit and baked-lemon, light oak, and a lovely, long, vanilla finish that’s uniquely Butter!
SEAN MINOR ‘FOUR BEARS’ CABERNET SAUVIGNON – this Paso Robles Cabernet offers ripe flavors of raspberries and blue fruit nuances that combine to create a rich mouthfeel. The soft tannins and sweet oak balance lead to a long and lingering finish.
SCARPETTA PINOT GRIGIO – Dry and crisp, with just the right amount of acidity, flavors of stone fruits, lavender, honey, lime, melon, pear, white flowers, and minerals make this Pinot Grigio extremely refreshing.
