Friday July 20th
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Join us this Friday evening as we offer up a variety of adult beverages (and a little snacking material) for you to try that’ll get primed for the pool-weather weekend. We’ll kick off with a selection of beers from Hays, Kansas very own DEFIANCE BREWING CO. who’re bringing these beers:
GOLDEN GIANT – an unfiltered IPA hopped with Simcoe and Columbus in the kettle and dry hopped with Amarillo and Simcoe. Soft and fluffy, citrusy and sweet. Perfect for this heat!
WILLY NILLY – a crisp and refreshing golden ale balanced to perfection by fruity hops, orange peel, and a hint of ginger. Easy going, easy drinking, and delicious.
TWISTED LOGIK – this 6.8% ABV IPA is somewhat malt heavier than Thrasher-er, with hop flavors offering a little pine balanced by an orange peel fruitiness.
For the liquor, we’ll be hosting the fine makers of PENDLETON WHISKY (which is interestingly enough the official whisky of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association).
This blended Canadian whisky, aged for 10 years in American Oak barrels and proofed with water from Mt. Hood in Oregon, is light-bodied, mellow and smooth with a light sweetness of burnt caramel backstopped by malt and oak pepper that carries over to a medium-to-long smoky and sweet finish featuring notes of maple and butterscotch.
And for the wines, our fine rep from Vintegrity will be bringing these for you to sample:
LIQUID GEOGRAPHY ROSE – a dry rosé wine made with mencía grapes from 53 year old vines in the region of Bierzo in northwest Spain, it sees no oak and is fermented and in stainless steel vats so you get the full unspoiled flavors of strawberries, red-currant and white pepper with a bright acidity that finishes taut and minerally, with an echo of red berries.
CARL GRAFF MOSEL RIESLING – earning a score of 88 points from Wine Enthusiast, this light-bodied off-dry wine offers light citrus notes of grapefruit wrapped in a savory minerality that’s lifted by notes of lemon-lime acidity on the 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.
AVELEDA CASAL GARCIA VINHO VERDE – this light and refreshing off-dry Portuguese white wine that’s slightly effervescent offers crisp and clean citrus flavors of tangy lemon and lime that makes it perfect for quenching your thirst by the pool.
SEAN MINOR ‘FOUR BEARS’ PINOT NOIR – this wine from the Central Coast offers luscious flavors of dark cherry, blackberry and floral notes with a touch of spice. The integrated bright acidity helps provide a lengthy finish.
And for the snacks, we’re pleased to welcome KC KITCHEN & PIZZERIA who’ll be giving you a taste of the wonderful foods they can prepare for you. Check out their fantastic menu, then go in and check out the sports bar atmosphere. And don’t forget, they deliver!
