Hello friends! Tonight’s Tap It Tuesday at 6pm is LIVE: Chocolate Cherry Casanova. This lightly soured barrel aged beer was aged 80+ days in a Heaven Hill Bourbon barrel on organic cocoa nibs and organic black mission figs, then blended with spiced cherry beer – just for Valentine’s Day. Aromas of dark sweet chocolate and cherries are the first to be noticed. Flavors of dark Belgian chocolate, sweet Bourbon and cherries dance on the palate, then lead to a silky chocolate and cherry finish. This one has “Be Mine” written all over it! 7.2% ABV, 20 IBUs, $7 glass, $2.50 taster.
The Vine 2012 release that was supposed to take place this Thursday has been postponed due to a labeling error; as soon as it is fixed, we will let you know.
We still have Barrels for sale at the Barrel House from 9-5 daily (except Tuesdays from 9-3). 53 gal Bourbon barrels cost $20, cash only. These are best used for rain barrels, and sorry, they do not come filled!
Today, we finished roasting the last of 500 lbs of white & orange Cinderella pumpkins for Pumpkin Smash, which will be bottled & kegged later this fall. This is a time consuming process, as only 50 lbs fit in the oven at any one time. To the right is the before and after. We are also gingering the next version of the Honey Ginger Lime for release on draft in the late spring. We’re working with our 2012 apricots, which are literally bursting to come out. And, we are working on a MINI batch of a draft only version of Chocolate Bourbonic Plague – two great tastes that taste great together!
Have a fantastic week – Servus!
