TRIPLE TAP TUESDAY FEATURING BURIAL BEER COMPANY
Jun

11:00 AM11:00

TRIPLE TAP TUESDAY FEATURING BURIAL BEER COMPANY

We’ve got three limited kegs coming our way from Burial Beer Company (Asheville, NC) and we are lining them up for a Triple Tap Tuesday. Here’s what pouring:

This Immortal Coil India Pale Ale
I've been circling myself for years. This paradox of existence and fiction is becoming mundane. These are merely frozen scepters, known to the world as portals into a cold, broken soul. I hear the hymn amid the breakers. Yet I'm as puzzled as the newborn child. My lair is filled with dreams, but they were placed there. And now, I'm as riddled as the tide. Made in celebration of things we find curiously enigmatic, with the creators at Wayfinder Beer. Made from a decoction of rice flour and barley, fermented cold with lager yeast, double dry-hopped with Ella, Galaxy, Wai-Iti and Vic's Secret hops and then re-fermented for conditioning with active Pilsner. These are the journeys we were not meant to find. 

Krystal Artifakts West Coast Style India Pale Ale  (Collaboration with Pinthouse Pizza Craft Brewpub)
Redemption time. Sometimes the sheer force of memory shatters the bones that stand up our present. So while the wreckage lay in wait of revival, there are luminous visions of brightly vivid clarity. And we turn, ever so briefly towards the beckoning beams of our yesteryear.  Dry-Hopped intensely with Citra, Amarillo, Denali and Azacca hops, and then finshed with Amarillo Cryo. Concocted through a shared love for Kolsch yeast, with our friends at Pinthouse Pizza Craft Brewpub.  

Skillet Doughnut American Stout
Cold black iron. Never decaying, it is held to the fire to unearth impeccable flavor from whatever it holds. Never prejudicial, it welcomes all ingredients. The Skillet is our most trusted and daring tool of culinary ingenuity. And it is the perfect banner-carrier for this rich black ale. This breakfast stout is made from a blend of 9 barley malts, a healthy scoop of oats, molasses, milk sugars, and our favorite blend of freshly roasted Counter Culture coffee beans. Welcome the day with rich chocolate and caramel maltiness and an abundance of diverse coffee aromas unlike any other.

These beers will be on tap starting at 11:00 am. and growler fills ARE allowed!

come by and try these wonderful beers!

Located in the Rocky Mount Mills, Hopfly brews beer with an “adventurous” spirit. Whether you are hiking the Appalachians, have your toes in the sand, or are just sitting around a campfire with friends; Hopfly knows that every adventure is better with a cold beer in hand.

Come sit with us and get familiar with this great eastern NC brewery!

WINE TASTING - BALVERNE WINES

Join us for a special after work tasting this Thursday featuring Balverne Sonoma County Estate Grown Wines.

“Bob and Renee Stein purchased the 710-acre Russian River Valley estate that included a working vineyard in 1992. With help from our vineyard and property manager, Doug Lumgair, the Steins recreated their sustainable vision for what would eventually become the Notre Vue Estate. The team worked with determination to weave together the rugged wildlands and agricultural landscape in a way that would allow both to thrive with equal beauty and strength. As part of this effort, the Steins made the decision to protect 350 acres of Forever Wild open space.

For over two decades, the Steins have been selling grapes from the estate to many ultra-premium brands in Sonoma County. Today we are farming 250 acres of vineyard that is Certified Sustainable, which verifies that our practices in the vineyard and winery are not only environmentally sound.”

Our good friend and former BottleMixx-er Ken Nussbaum will be here to walk you through the tasting as we sample Balverne’s Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.

While Post Time for “The fastest two minutes in sports” is at 6:30 p.m. we’re going to start the festivities at 3:00 p.m.  

Potluck…
BottleMixx will provide a free assortment of small snacks (chips, pretzels, nuts etc.), soft drinks and bottled water, but we’d love for you to bring a dish to share!

If you’d like to sign up to bring a dish, click here.

Also happening today - the founders of Horball’s Drinking Vinegars will be here to experiment and create delicious recipes with their drinking vinegars (sorry but sans the liquor).

“Horball’s is a shrub: a drinking vinegar popular in the colonial days used by sailors to cool down on the sea and by revelers to enhance the drink of their choice. The recipe is simple: the freshest fruit, natural cane sugar, and tangy vinegar. Crafted with care this blend naturally creates a perfectly balanced additive that can enhance any drink: spirits, soda, water, even beer!”

So mark your calendar, dress up, wear your best bonnet, or come as you are and join us for “The Run for The Roses!”

GRIMM THURSDAY

Right before Good Friday, we’ve got a Grimm Thursday with a triple tap offering of three awesome beer from Grimm Artisanal Ales

ON THE TAPS:

Today’s Special Pale Ale (Mandarina)
Lambo Door - Double IPA
Zonk - Triple IPA

About the brewery: “Grimm Artisanal Ales is a Brooklyn-based brewery founded in 2013 by Joe and Lauren Grimm after nearly a decade of tinkering with fermentation. Grimm specializes in concise, elegant ales epitomizing the creative, experimental spirit of the American artisanal beer revolution. With each limited edition release, we seek to push the boundaries of style and flavor in order to create beers with the utmost depth and complexity.

For five years, Grimm operated as a nomadic brewery. Joe and Lauren would develop each recipe in the kitchen of their Gowanus apartment and travel to existing breweries near and far to craft their commercial beers.

In June 2018, they opened their permanent location in the East Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.”
