Barrel Culture Brewing at the Mixx

Joining us from Durham, Barrel Culture Brewing & Blending is producing 100% Oak fermented, rustic fruit driven, wild artisan style ales that marry local terroir and aggressive flavor profiles.

We are looking forward to having them here for the first time with a handful of beers on draft and bottles to go. All their productions are very small batches so we don't know exactly what we are getting right now, but as soon as we do then we will update on here. Draft beers will be available all day starting at 11am and bottles will be available starting at 5pm. As always everything is first come first serve. We will not be filling growlers of the beer on tap until Friday.

So You Think You Can Brew - A Home Brew Competition

So You Think You Can Brew!
A Homebrew Competition

Hosted by BottleMixx in coordination with Raleigh Brewing Company, and Atlantic Brew Supply

In our eternal journey to seek out the best that beer has to offer, we turn to you, our loyal customers to bring us your best beers that you have brewed! We’re really looking forward to trying all the great beers being brewed in the garages and back porches of Raleigh!

As with any competition there are prizes! We think we’ve got some pretty good ones in store for the winner. To the winner goes; a $100 Atlantic Brew Supply Gift Card, a $50 BottleMixx gift card, and a trip to Raleigh Brewing Company to brew the winning beer where it will be put on tap for BottleMixx’s 6th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday October 27th!

Also since this is a competition we will have judges and scoring. The judging panel will be made up of industry professionals and BottleMixx, ABS, and RBC staff. While this is not an official Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) event we will be utilizing the BJCP scoresheet which scores a beer with a total possible of 50 points. Points are awarded for aroma, appearance, flavor, mouthfeel, and overall impression. A more detailed copy of the scoresheet can be found on our website www.bottlemixx.com/homebrew.

Also with any competition comes a set of rules. Unfortunately not every beer can be accepted for consideration as we need to be able to recreate the winning beer to put on draft for our anniversary. Here are a list of rules for the beer and submitting the beer:

WICKED WEED 10 TAP TAKEOVER

10:00 AM10:00

WICKED WEED 10 TAP TAKEOVER

Since 2014 we have been bringing you the stellar beers from Wicked Weed Brewing Company out of Asheville. For the second time we will be featuring them with a complete 10 tap takeover! Wicked Weed is continuing to grow and this year it’s going to take 2 days to feature everything coming out of the Brewery!

EVENT 2:

WICKED WEED BREWPUB EXPERIENCE!

Wicked Weed Brewpub Experience!
Saturday, May 19th - All Day

For the second time we’ve invited Wicked Weed to showcase the best they have to offer with a full 10 tap takeover! This was definitely one of our favorite events last year and we are seriously looking forward to it again!

Our local Wicked Weed rep Kevin will be here from 2-5pm with swag giveaways and to answer all your questions about Wicked Weed!

All of the beer except the Red Angel will be on tap right at 10:00am! Due to the extremely limited nature of the beers some will not have samples available.

Tap Lineup*

Pernicious: “Pernicious implies influence that is harmful in a way not easily noticed. This beer is harmful, not because of overwhelming hop bitterness, but because it’s balanced brightness insidiously ruins your expectations for all other IPAs. This hop delivery vehicle is crafted to enjoy fresh and often and because of its drinkability and clean finish you’ll never look at IPA the same again. The harm is done.”

Freak of Nature: “Freak of Nature. Noun. 1. An unusual, unexpected natural phenomenon. 2. An outlying, west coast style double India Pale Ale brewed with an abnormally large quantity of hops. 3. A delicately crafted, and crushable ale designed for fresh and immediate consumption. 4. A hophead’s vice or downfall. Ex: Though warned about its habit-forming hoppiness, they were seduced by the dank, tropical, and drinkable Freak of Nature.”

Artistry Series II Double IPA: The second beer in our artistry series, this double IPA combines traditional West Coast hops with an innovative dry hop of Cryo Mosaic and Cryo Ekuanot, which contain cryogenically separated lupulin. Resinous and juicy, this DIPA propels tropical hop flavor into an entirely new work of art.

Uncle Rick’s: “Pilsner is perfection, and perfection takes patience. After a lengthy and methodical fermentation, Uncle Rick’s emerges. We take the purest Blue Ridge Mountain water and combine it with German yeast, Noble hops, and traditional pilsner malts to brew our perfect Pilsner. For our friends and family, for sunny days and long nights, for celebrating, for relaxing, for Uncle Rick: we craft this beer for both the beer connoisseur and the connoisseur of life.”

Coolcumber: “Summer in Carolina is a time when days grow long, life slows down, and friends draw near. Gardens burst with brisk basil and fresh cucumbers, fireflies illuminate the night sky, and warm days leave us lounging late, our glasses brimming with golden nectar. Summer in the South is best served cool.”

Garcon de Ferme: “Garcon de Ferme is a foeder-rested, brettanomyces farmhouse ale. After fermentation, this pleasantly tart ale is blended back onto over a pound and a half per gallon of fresh, whole peaches to reflect and echo that the craft of the old has not been wasted on the young.”

**Chocolate Covered Black Angel:” Chocolate-covered black angel is a dark, sour ale that we combine with 2 pounds per gallon of tart Montmorency cherries. After the beer rests in Kentucky bourbon barrels, we then blend it into steel tanks with another 2 pounds per gallon of Montmorency cherries and 100 pounds of Honduran cacao nibs from French Broad Chocolates. Give in to the darkness.”

** 2016 Red Angel: “Red Angel is patiently and painstakingly aged in puncheons with 1.5 pounds per gallon of fresh, whole raspberries. After maturation in these neutral oak vessels, this sour is re-fermented on an additional 2.5 pounds per gallon of raspberries to impart fresh berry character. A total of 4 pounds per gallon (2.5 metric tons) of fruit renders Red Angel the complete essence of raspberry in a glass. Red Angel taps at 2:00pm”

Poperinge: Named for the largest hop growing region in Belgium, our Poperinge Saison is made with hops sourced from around the world, and is fermented with our Saison yeast. Juicy fruit aromas as well as banana, sweet pine, and a hint of lemon make this beer an easy drinking brew

All Beers except the Chocolate Covered Black Angel and Red Angel will be available in Growlers to-go.

*Tap Lineup is subject to change

**No Samples of these beers will be available

After Hours - Wicked Weed Sour Class

After Hours - Wicked Weed Sour Class

Since 2014 we have been bringing you the stellar beers from Wicked Weed Brewing Company out of Asheville. For the second time we will be featuring them with a complete 10 tap takeover! Wicked Weed is continuing to grow and this year it’s going to take 2 days to feature everything coming out of the Brewery!

Event 1:

WICKED WEED SOURS MASTER CLASS
A BottleMixx "Beer After Hours" Event
Friday, May 18th at 8:00 p.m. (closed to the public, ticketed guests only)

World renowned for their sour program, Wicked Weed is one of the leaders when it comes to the production of sour beers. Join us for a special after-hours event with the rare opportunity to learn first-hand about what makes Wicked Weed an industry leader. We will talk about what makes a beer sour, the difference between kettle and barrel-aged sours, how is the fruit flavor achieved, and much more. Our class will be led by Wicked Weed’s Head Sour Brewer Eric and Sour Team Lead Jen and our local brewery rep Kevin Pelham.  Any lover of sour beer, or someone who is interested in learning more about the science behind sour beer shouldn’t miss out! We will be featuring 5 different sour options with light snacks served. Guests will get 6oz pours of each of the beers.

Tickets to the event are $35 plus tax and are limited to 32 people! As mentioned before your ticket includes 5 – six ounce pours of beer served with light snacks. Also for attending the event you will have the opportunity to purchase bottles of Framboos Morte, and other featured beers!

Tickets can be reserved by coming in or calling the shop (919-615-1703) and ask for Bruce or Dustin. Payment is required when you reserve tickets.

Featured Sours:
Tropicmost Gose: “For us, this Old World-inspired beer is mile zero–the point at which we trustfully spin the needle on the compass and follow at will. From the warmer climates of equatorial lands, this Gose takes its tropic inspiration. Brewed with tart passion fruit and flavor-brightening sea salt, Tropicmost Gose is a roadmap of the Southern Americas.”

Metatropics: “Metatropics is a collaboration beer that flips current IPA orthodoxy onto its head. Wicked Weed and Trois Dames love using hops to produce an equatorial, citrusy character, but decided to deconstruct this process to forge something new. This beer employs real pineapple, passionfruit, mango, grapefruit, and tangerine to emulate tropical hop flavors. The addition of brettanomyces wild yeast takes this beer to new heights of meta-refreshment.”

Oblivion: “Oblivion is a sour red ale aged with blackberries and dates in red wine barrels for up to 12 months. This ale is then carefully blended to create depth and balance that will envelope you in its complexity.”

Sandiaca: “The newest addition to the Wicked Weed Canvas series of sours, Sandiaca is an American sour ale aged in fresh gin barrels with brisk basil and bright watermelon. This botanical, tropical, and herbal sour ale showcases the complexity of our house culture in conjunction with the finest produce and barrel-aging. Once this beer reaches its peak, we blend the gin barrels to attain the perfect resonance of Rayburn Farms, NC grown basil and refreshing watermelon in a sour ale.”

Framboos Morte: Best described as “epically raspberry” Framboos Morte is a fruited sour that pays homage to the traditional lambic sours from Belgium. Hopped aggressively with aged hops and packed full of 4 pounds per barrel of bright and fresh of the vine raspberries, the end product creates what many Wicked Weed fans call the best sour Wicked Weed makes! Usually the only place to find bottles of this are at the Funkatorium or Wicked Weed Brewpub in Asheville, so we are definitely lucky to get our hands on some cases!

GINGER BEER SAMPLING WITH QUINNGER BEER!

Moscow Mule!  Dark & Stormy! Gin Gin Mule...and more!

What makes these classic cocktails so tasty?  Why it's the ginger beer of course.   And now there is a locally made ginger beer for you to enjoy - it's called Quinnger Beer.

The Quinnger Beer Story

"It’s been almost five years since brewer Quinn McKee perfected his non-alcoholic ginger beer recipe, but only one year since it's been available to the public. Taking its name from its inventor, “Quinnger Beer” has already received rave reviews from ginger beer experts, restaurateurs and bartenders alike, who praise its freshness, subtle spice and incredible ability to enhance spirits.

At Quinnger Beer, we brew in small batches using only the freshest hand-picked ingredients, with Quinn personally supervising every step of the process. This ensures that every glass, growler and keg is up to his high standards. So if you like what you taste, be sure to keep your eye out for the ginger beer behind the ginger beard."

Come and enjoy a sample and get some great cocktail recipes.

4/20 - New Belgium The Hemperor Tapping!

4/20 - New Belgium The Hemperor Tapping!

From New Belgium:
Get ready: an exciting new offering that’ll change the way you think about hoppy beers is coming your way. The brewers at New Belgium have created a new style of IPA: The Hemperor HPA. With the popularity of hoppy beers, our brewers are always on the lookout for different hop varieties and the complexities and flavors new strains can bring. That’s where hemp comes into the picture. Without getting too nerdy, we found a unique way to recreate hemp terpene flavors in a beer, which complement the inclusion of hop flavors and hemp hearts (seeds) in a brand new, delicious way—not to mention this beer is extremely dank! The flavors and aromas are so unique that it’s a style unto itself, hence HPA®.
As Colorado brewers we have long pondered the possibilities of blending hops with hemp. We expected the two elements would work well together so we set about researching the potential.
As research evolved, it quickly became apparent that the Federal government would not allow us to brew with whole hemp flower because parts of the hemp plant (which contains  little to no THC) is still classified as a Schedule 1 drug. To be clear, there is no THC or CBD in this beer.
The federal government said we could still use hemp hearts (which are the meat of the hemp seed minus its shell) but we needed to find a workaround if we wanted those floral hemp terpenes – the key flavor attributes of the hemp plant that deliver the citrus, piney and dank flavors you’re smelling now.
Our next step was to identify those hemp terpenes and then find natural plant materials that would best emulate them.
That recipe is the secret sauce, so without getting too specific, we can tell you that we looked at things like orange peel, grapefruit and pine sap as examples. We feel our brewers nailed it, as you can tell by what’s in the glass in front of you.

We've picked a special day and time to tap this truly one of a kind IPA. See you at 4:20pm on 4/20!

DARMS LANE WINE TASTING
Mar

3:00 PM15:00

DARMS LANE WINE TASTING

We invite you to join us for this very special wine tasting exhibiting four selections from Darms Lane Winery, Napa, CA.  

Darms Lane Winery is a family owned and operated boutique vineyard located in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, (an American Viticulture Area located within the Napa Valley AVA) and produces only about 3,000 cases annually.

The selections for this tasting will be:

2014 Chardonnay, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley
2014 Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon - Bon Passe Vineyard, Oak Knoll District
2014 Fortune 1621 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Tasting Fee:  $10     This tasting is limited to 48 participants
Light Snacks will be available while they last.  
Michael Rando, representing Darms Lane Winery will be our guest presenter.

"Darms Lane Vineyard is located in the southwestern bench lands of Napa Valley. The vineyard was established 26 years ago as a Chardonnay estate. In 2008 we changed our name from Crichton Hall Vineyard to Darms Lane Vineyard in order to better identify our physical location. The 14 acre vineyard was replanted in 2002 & 2003 with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. We are a family owned and operated boutique vineyard located in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Our 2005 vintage was the inaugural release of our estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon.
Today, Darms Lane produces about 3,000 cases annually."

"Brian Mox, winemaker for Darms Lane, has been creating our balanced and food friendly wines since 2003. Born and raised in the Midwest, Brian completed his Chemistry degree at MIT and later attended Viticulture and Enology courses at U.C. Davis. Brian has worked in the Valley for many years including as the winemaker for Laird Family Estate, Etude wines and more recently at Lewis Cellars. When Brian first began working with the Bump family, they all agreed upon making wines that were true to the vineyard site. They like more restrained and elegant wines; a perfect fit considering the cooler terroir of their vineyard. As their winemaker, Brian feels like the conductor of a very harmonious orchestra. Of course Mother Nature makes sure to bring new climatic challenges every year, as Brian describes it, his job is to maximize the expression of the vineyard in a style that is true to the fruit and meets the expectations of the owners and the preferences of consumers. Brian has played a key role in the transition of Darms Lane vineyard from Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and his outstanding skills and experience have been instrumental in creating the Darms Lane wines that we make today."

Brooklyn Black Ops on Tap!

Brooklyn Black Ops on Tap!

Legend has it that Brooklyn Black Ops does not exist. However, if it did exist, it would be a strong stout concocted by the Brooklyn brewing team under cover of secrecy and hidden from everyone else at the brewery. The legend is that this supposed “Black Ops” was then aged for months in bourbon barrels. Presumably such a beer would raise a rich, fluffy dark brown head and it would combine chocolate and coffee flavors with a rich underpinning of vanilla-like bourbon notes. A beer like that would be mighty nice, but it would be hard to make more than few cases.

Obviously a beer this special deserves its own event so we're putting together a special evening to celebrate this fantastic beer. Join Eddie from Brooklyn Brewery from 5-7:30pm  as we pour 3 different Brooklyn Brewery beers on draft! All Beers will be tapped at 11am!

On Draft:
Black Ops Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels
Naranjito Pale Ale with Orange Peel
Bel Air Dry Hopped Sour Ale

Revision Brewing Company - Meet the Owner!

Revision Brewing Company - Meet the Owner!

Revision Brewing Company is a craft beer brewery located in Sparks, Nevada. Jeremy Warren and the first brewer that he hired at Knee Deep Brewing Company, Jeb Taylor, are combining their passion for brewing great, fresh beer at Revision Brewing Company.

The fine folks from Revision Brewing Company are making their way to Raleigh and we're throwing them a party! We'll have 4 great IPA's on draft as well as some specialty package to take home! Make sure to come out for this really cool opportunity to meet and have a beer with the owner of Revision Brewing Company!

On Draft:
Revision IPA - Low impact bitterness, high impact aroma and flavor. Simcoe lays the hop foundation for this extremely delicious, flavorful and quaffable American India Pale Ale.  Tropical citrus, orange and pine flavors meld seamlessly.

Dr. Lupulin 3x IPA - The art and science of awesome. Somewhat of an anomaly, Doctor Lupulin is brewed with loads of hops but is not too bitter.  A high ABV brew that is easy drinking without excessive alcohol heat. Is that mango having a pleasant conversation with dank? Yep. The experiment to create beer perfection is alive.

Glitter Moon Northeast-Style DIPA - The bulk of the hop aroma and flavor in this brew come from the land down under. Galaxy and Vic Secret hops from Australia exude pineapple and passionfruit goodness while a solid chunk of oats in the grain bill makes for a smooth mouthfeel.

Jewel Box Northeast-Style IPA - A Northeast-Style IPA with 100% Galaxy hops?!  Sign us up. Notes of pineapple and guava rock the house.

Specialty Package:
Glitter Moon Northeast-Style DIPA - The bulk of the hop aroma and flavor in this brew come from the land down under. Galaxy and Vic Secret hops from Australia exude pineapple and passionfruit goodness while a solid chunk of oats in the grain bill makes for a smooth mouthfeel.

Jewel Box Northeast-Style IPA - A Northeast-Style IPA with 100% Galaxy hops?!  Sign us up. Notes of pineapple and guava rock the house.

Whole Lotta Ruckus Northeast-Style DIPA - There’s a whole lotta ruckus goin’ down in this super tasty Northeast-Style Double IPA. This beer combines the best of Northeastern tropical juiciness and West Coast piney aggressiveness. Pour, breath in, enjoy!
