to Jul 27

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:

-         Entrants must be 21 or Older

-         Entry fee is $10 per beer with a max of 4 beers per person/team

-         Entry fee is paid when samples are dropped off

-         Amateur brewers only

-         Must be an all grain beer (no extract) and must go from grain to beer in less than 4 weeks

-         Single temperature mashing (no decoction)

-         All pellet hops

-         No wild yeasts or barrel aging

-         2 – 12oz bottles of each beer must be submitted

-         Bottles must be submitted with appropriate bottle label affixed with a rubber band on the bottle

-         It might be a good idea to protect the paper label from moisture

-         Beer must be dropped off at BottleMixx (8111 Creedmoor Rd #153 Raleigh, NC 27613) during business hours Monday July 23rd – Friday July 27th and must include a filled out submission form for each beer

-         Labels are able to be printed at www.bottlemixx.com/homebrew

-         Judging will take place on Saturday July 29th and the winner will be announced via email/social media on Monday July 30th  

-         Should your homebrew be selected as the winner, and you wish to brew at RBC, you and any Co-Brewer must assign any and all patent and intellectual property rights in your brew to Raleigh Brewing Company if requested

-         All score sheets will be available for all beers submitted from Monday July 30th through Sunday August 5th

-         Direct any questions to Dustin at dustin@bottlemixx.com

In an attempt to anticipate the number of entrants, we ask for you to pre-register your beers at www.bottlemixx.com/homebrew

Hardywood Tap Takeover!

Hardywood Tap Takeover!

It's finally here! We've been waiting patiently (well some of us more than others) for Hardywood to start sending their beers down to North Carolina and we're finally able to sell their awesome beer! Bottles and Cans are already arriving in the shop, but we're going to set aside a whole day to feature them on draft. As of right now we have 6 awesome kegs to pour with maybe more on the way! The kegs will be on draft as soon as we open on Friday and we'll be pouring glasses and growlers of all the kegs!

 

Tap Lineup:
PILSNER - Crisp, clean and incomparably quaffable, Hardywood Pils sparkles a brilliant shade of gold with a rich, cloud-white head. Hand crafted with only the finest European pilsner malt and German noble hops.
VIPA - The embodiment of true Virginia hospitality, Hardywood VIPA offers alluring tropical aromatics, a refreshingly delicate body and a bright, juicy finish. Heirloom Virginia barley rounds out the malt bill and creates a perfect sense of balance with a dose of citrusy Virginia hops.
THE GREAT RETURN - Bold, resinous and bursting with bright grapefruit aroma, this IPA is a tribute to the decades of hard work by conservationists to restore the James River as a bounty of vibrant aquatic life, eco-friendly recreational activity, and in our case, fresh brewing water.
TROPICATION - Heaps of Mosaic and Nelson Savin hops send a wave of tropical fruit aromatics that burst on the palate with notes of passion fruit, lychee, mango, pineapple and lime.
PEACH TRIPEL - Bright and effervescent, showcasing a delightful balance of fruity esters and spicy phenols that harmonize with subtle notes of white pepper and honeysuckle. Our Peach Tripel is refermented on apricots and heaps of yellow peaches, delivering a luscious stone fruit character with a pleasantly dry finish.
BOURBON CRU - Bourbon Barrel Cru displays a rich mahogany hue with a medium body and brilliant clarity after months of barrel aging. The maturity and melding of flavors brought on by the freshly drained bourbon whiskey barrels lend an extraordinary sense of harmony to Bourbon Barrel Cru. Almond, toffee and oaky vanilla give way to notes of dark cherries and raisins. Subtle hints of plum are greeted by caramel overtones for a smooth, robust and warming finish.

Austin East Cider Tasting
Jun

5:00 PM17:00

Austin East Cider Tasting

Influenced by tradition, Austin Eastciders use real cider apples sourced from Europe. Unlike culinary apples, cider apples are full of tannins that create astringency and a more complex flavor profile. They then marry them with apples from the Pacific Northwest for a perfectly-balanced cider. They're helping move the mainstream toward cider that’s lower in sugar and features more complex flavor profiles. And with a range of styles, they believe they have truly created ciders that appeal to beer, wine and cider drinkers alike. Join Mackenzie from Austin Eastciders to taste some of their fantastic ciders. 

Tasting:
Original Dry Cider
Blood Orange Cider
Ruby Red Grapefruit Cider

New Sarum Tasting and Draft Event!

Born in the heart of Salisbury, New Sarum Brewing derives its name from the original settlement name of Salisbury’s Sister City “Old Sarum” England. Their logo was created by combining the Old Sarum crest with the City of Salisbury crest, fashioning them together to create their own artistic reflection. Their company is based on a basic principle, creating great craft beer. Each recipe begins with a study of an individual style of beer, searching history for proved and tested methods of creating the foundation. New Sarum uses this to find new ways of developing each beer’s unique flavor. Their full-body beers are created in a consistently high quality standard that sets us apart from the competition.

We will have Nick from the brewery here to taste some of their delicious canned beer offerings perfect for the summer! We will also have cans available to go and a couple of their beers on draft to enjoy a pint while you're in!

WICKED WEED 10 TAP TAKEOVER
May

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!
