Friday, September 2nd
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Join us for a pre-Labor Day weekend tasting as we vary things up a little this Friday with cider instead of beer to get you into the Fall mood along with some local wines and a nice variety of pre-made cocktails for your tailgating at the games. We’ll be kicking off with a line-up of flavors from WOODCHUCK HARD CIDER CO., including:
BARREL SELECT – Private Reserve Barrel Select is aged in small batches to bring out balanced hints of bourbon over a crisp apple backdrop. The cider is aged for six months in genuine white oak Kentucky Bourbon barrels. The barrels impart a copper hue on the cider as well as gentle notes of oak, vanilla, and whiskey.
FALL HARVEST – has a complex and elegant character full of apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg balanced with a hint of American White Oak.
AMBER – their original cider, remains the same today as those first hand-filled bottles in 1991. Fiercely crafted with a medium body, golden hue, and refreshing red apple finish.
GUMPTION – pair the fresh juice of common eating apples with dry cider apples to bring you a bold and unique drinking experience.
We’ll be following those up with these three twist-and-pour delights from ARTY’S LEGENDARY COCKTAILS. Half-owned by investors out of Lawrence, KS, all of these are small batch drinks, made with hand-crafted vodka and sold in 4-packs:
BLOODY MARY – multi-dimensional flavor packed with loads of spicy tomato, celery and citrus flavors with a serious kick of black and hot pepper spice on the finish.
MOSCOW MULE – drafts from the original recipe made of vodka, ginger and lime. Our Mule is light, refreshing and filled with a taste of the past.
STRAWBERRY LEMONADE – refreshing, slightly sweet, and easy drinking on a warm day.
Also, we’ll be hosting SOMERSET RIDGE WINERY, a family-owned vineyard and winery located in the rolling hills of Miami County, KS, approx 20 miles south of the greater KC area. Enjoy trying their —
