Friday July 13th
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Join us this balmy Summer evening for a tasting featuring a line-up of adult beverages you’ll want for enlivening your pool and BBQ parties. To kick off, we’ll be sampling beers from LAGUNITAS BREWING CO. out of California who’ll be bringing these beers for you to taste:
IPA – Bold citrus, piney flavors are laced with lush honey and caramel for a well-rounded, highly drinkable IPA. A bit of Caramel Malt barley provides the richness that mellows out the twang of the hops.
SUMPIN’ EASY ALE – A healthy dose of 2-row malted barley, a bit of wheaty-esque-ish-ness and loads of Ekuanot hops create a super smooth and velvety ale with a fruit and resin-y- finish like biting into a freshly picked peach.
CITRUSINENSIS PALE ALE – taking the juice of fresh Sanguinello Blood oranges they threw it into a wheatier version of their DogTown Pale Ale to create a refreshingly hopped pale-ish ale with a huge citrus burst!
For the liquors. our great rep from Major Brands will be bringing three flavors of rum creams from BLUE CHAIR BAY, the Caribbean rum company owned by country music star Kenny Chesney. Committed to quality, Kenny himself insists on using only premium juices and natural ingredients free of any artificial additives in the making of their rums to give them exceptional taste and quality and insure that one taste will keep people coming back for more. We’ll be trying their:
KEY LIME RUM CREAM – winning Gold Medals at both the Denver International Spirits Competition and the SIP Awards International Spirits Competition, this is delicious from the first fresh key lime notes to the rich, buttery middle, right up to the graham cracker crust finish.
BANANA RUM CREAM – a perfect blend of fresh, sweet, ripe banana flavors with surprising caramel and vanilla notes, this rum cream is the perfect base for no-pressure cocktails, from frozen tiki drinks to sophisticated daiquiris.
PINEAPPLE RUM CREAM – juicy, fresh pineapple greets the tastebuds and brings your senses right to the island beaches. Sip it on the rocks or mix it with Coconut Rum to make a must-have piña colada.
