Thanks to everyone who joined us for our Blowing Rock tasting this past Thursday evening!  The brewery just launched in our area and we loved getting to share them with everyone.  Their Black IPA was the hit of the night with a great balance of roasted malts and hops.  If you’re ever in Blowing Rock, NC be sure to stop by their restaurant and try some of their special releases that don’t make it out of that area!

Join us this upcoming Thursday, March 12th, from 5-7 PM for a tasting featuring Belgian-style IPAs!  This variation on the IPA features Belgian yeast for pronounced dryness.  Belgian IPAs often drink like a cross between a Belgian Tripel and an IPA.  Join us any time during the two hour tasting window and enjoy this delicious crossover style.

If you’re a fan of barrel aged beer, this week brought us a special treat just for you!  Lexington Brewing, also known as Kentucky Ales, has just released their new Rye Barrel IPA.  They put their IPA into fresh rye whiskey and bourbon barrels for six weeks.  Vanilla, oak, and rye notes begin to appear as compliments to the fruity and citrusy traits of the hops.

After several requests for another bottle share, March seemed like the perfect time! Just like last time, admittance fee is a bottle.  We aren’t looking for you to bring all of your DANK WHALEZ, just a beer you’d enjoy sharing with others.  We’ll close at 5 PM that evening and begin tasting shortly afterward.  Space will be limited so RSVP on Facebook or to us soon!

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks again,

Thanks again,
Carl & Vance
