Friday Sept 29th
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Join us this last Friday evening of September as we offer up a delicious line-up of adult beverages to head you into the Fall, We’ll kick off with BALLAST POINT BREWING CO. , the San Diego beer-maker that’s become incredibly popular around KC, who’ll be bringing these beers for you to try:
GRAPEFRUIT SCULPIN – the tart freshness of grapefruit perfectly complements their Sculpin IPA’s unique citrusy hop character. Deserves its great 95 score on RateBeer.
GRUNION PALE ALE – award-winning hoppy pale ale with strong yet balanced summer melon aromas and herbal flavors, and a soft caramel malt sweetness to hold it all together. Earns its well-deserved 98 score on RateBeer.
DEAD RINGER – a well-balanced Oktoberfest with an abundance of toasted malt and a lower hop bitterness, this dark reddish brown lager is loaded with sweet, caramel toffee flavors and aromas.
PUMPKIN DOWN – they take the caramel and toffee maltiness of their Piper Down Scottish ale as the perfect backdrop for a boatload of roasted pumpkin complemented by a subtle amount of spice.
For the liquor, we’ll be tasting all the spirits available from our local TOM’S TOWN DISTILLERY (located over on Main St.). This a great opportunity for you to sample these premium liquors:
PENDERGAST’S ROYAL GOLD BOURBON – this 90 Proof Bourbon offers a rich warmth with a smooth and well-balanced flavor, finished in hand-selected 14-year-old port casks.
