NC BREWERY SPOTLIGHT - FOUR SAINTS BREWING CO.

  • BottleMixx

NC Brewery Spotlight

On the first Wednesday of each month, we “put the spotlight” on a North Carolina brewery.  We’ll have 3 special beers on tap and a representative from the featured brewery will be here to talk shop.  It’s a great opportunity for a fun, informal and educational evening.  Grab your friends and come out and join us!

This month we feature Four Saints Brewing Co. of Asheboro, NC. 

"Four Saints Brewing pays homage to the patron saints of beer, Saint Wenceslaus, Saint Nicholas, Saint Luke and Saint Augustine of Hippo. They’ve become the most recognized patron saints for brewing and beer because of their contributions to and associations with the world’s favorite sudsy beverage. Four Saints Founders Joel McClosky and Andrew Deming are carrying on the brewing tradition in the hopes of future sainthood, or at least to make some really good beer."

Check back soon for the tap selection for this event!

Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell’s Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell’s repertoire.

Selected specifically because of their aromatic qualities, these Pacific Northwest varieties contribute a pungent blend of grapefruit, stone fruit and floral notes. A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style.
