Sunday, February 12th, 11am - Midnight:
Calling all beer lovers! Once again, we’re teaming up with Brewpublic and some of our favorite local breweries for a tap list that will make even the most experienced beer connoisseurs blush; consider it our collective Valentine to you. Think chocolates, lavender, vanilla, cherries, oranges, apricots and raspberries and you’ll start to see how this lineup is going to set the tone for the evening. Our very own Sugar Pimp will be whipping up some delectable and decadent confections for pairing as well, so grab your sweetheart (and your sweet tooth) and come down for a dimly lit evening of libations and dwindling inhibitions…
Breakside’s “Lavender Fudge” Stout
“A sweeter version of our dry stout conditioned on cacao nibs and lavender”
Upright’s “Blend Edmunds” Cherry Farmhouse
“Barrel aged wheaten ‘Four’ with tart cherries & barrel aged ‘Six’ with dark sweet cherries”
Vertigo’s “Raspberry Blast” Vanilla Porter
“We took our ‘Arctic Blast’ vanilla porter and pulled out a half-barrel to which we added 6 pounds of raspberries”
Fort George’s “Mexican Chocolate” Stout
“What does a revolution taste like? Smooth, creamy, and with a kick of cinnamon! Our Mexican chocolate stout starts off with a smooth chocolate taste and balanced body. The different chocolate malts give off not only a creamy dark roasted chocolate flavor, but also a bit of bitterness to help prepare you for the wonderful spices that come at the end. With cinnamon, vanilla, and almond spices blended in the chocolate that we put in the kettle and the bright tank, this potent brew is great to enjoy before or after the revolution. Enjoy this sweet yet spicy new stout from the Fort George and celebrate the revolution that is Stout Month. Viva La Stout!”
Alameda’s “My Bloody Valentine” Farmhouse
This second incarnation of their farmhouse-style saison is dry, citric, tart, spritzy and incredibly drinkable with orange essence from the use of dried orange peels and blood orange juice
Coalition’s “Sweet Kiss Goodnight“ Porter
“Chilean caramel malt, munich malt and honey malt add sweetness, with a hint of roastiness from carafa. After fermentation, this beer was aged on cherry wood and vanilla bean to add to its alluring complexity.”
Laurelwood’s “Hugh Heifer” Milk Stout
“Made with British Maris Otter, Brown, chocolate malts and Roast Barley, Domestic Crystal 60 and 150 as well as oats and Black Prinz Malt, Lactose, Northern Brewer Hops and finished with cacao nibs and coffee. This beer is a luxurious an velvety stout with a with a mature, rich and complex body. The nose is dominated by layers of chocolate, coffee and lightly roasted Coco Puffs. The body is voluptuous. ’Nuff said?”
Cascade’s “Live From the Barrel: Bourbon Apricot” Sour Ale
“Apricot nectar was barrel aged for four months, then blended with spiced Bourbon Quad and Noyaux shells. Apricot skins, brandy and charred notes from the bourbon barrel greet you in the nose. Tart rich notes of apricot flesh and oak on the palate lead to a complex finish of apricots, cherry pits, oak and vanillin. Servus!”
Mt Tabor’s “Valencino’s Dirty Nutz“ Stout
“Valentine’s Day is a time for secrets and sweets. Surprise your taste buds with our ‘Dirty Nutz’, a stout infused with Nocino, a sweet Italian walnut liqueur. Take your time, as ‘Dirty Nutz’ is built to last and some say tastes even better when warm (don’t worry, our ‘Dirty Nutz’ don’t sweat). So get in the mood, grab your sweetheart and wrap your lips around our Dirty Nutz.”
The Commons’ “Brotherly Love” Belgo’ Strong Ale
“A Belgian-style dark strong ale aged in a Heaven Hill bourbon barrel with red tart cherries and Peruvian cocoa nibs added to the barrel and allowed to meld with the beer”
Block 15’s “Love Potion #9” Sweet Stout
“Conditioned with locally grown black Raspberries from Stahlbush Island Farms and matured on house roasted Fair Trade cocoa nibs. Developed by Gypsies & guaranteed to help you find love.”
Hopworks’ “Army of Darkness” Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout
“Black as a moonless night, ‘Army of Darkness’ emerges from the Hopworks cellar after 9 months in bourbon barrels. What was once a roasty, fruity, warming stout has become chocolatey and smooth. Caramel and vanilla dominate the nose, while the bourbon barrels impart a mildly drying finish. Big, black and bold all around, this beer embodies darkness in the best way possible.”
Oakshire’s “Cordial Love” Oatmeal Stout
Made with cocoa nibs and aged on espresso with sweet cherries.
