This Friday, September 28, we are offering something a little different with free samplings of selected imported beers.
This week’s samples include:
Veltins Pilsener: Veltins pours clean with a pale golden body and white, billowing head. Subtle malt and pleasant grassy character fill the nose. The first sip bursts with carbonation and there is a balanced soft note of malt and gentle hops. The sweet malt slowly melds to a dry, clean, soft finish which leaves you begging for more. 4.8% ABV.
Veltins Grevensteiner: The first beer brewed by Carl and Anton Veltins was an unfiltered malty Kellerbier and was called Grevensteiner. This unfiltered country beer is brown and ruby highlights, slightly hazy with a brilliant white head. The body is rich and malty with a clean crisp slightly hoppy finish. Grevensteiner uses whole leaf hops and traditional ancient malts to recreate the true original beer of the brewery. 5.2% ABV.
Sunner Kolsch: It was Sünner that brewed the first beer in the modern Kölsch style (though it wasn’t called that then) around 1900. Sünner is a ‘Kölsch’ beer, unique to Köln (Cologne) Germany. Like Champagne (Appellation Controlee) it is protected by laws, so that only beers brewed in that region can bear the name. It is an Ale with a stylish character derived from lagering. It is clear and pale straw in appearance. The taste is refreshing, gently fruity, slightly sweet with a crisp, dry finish. 4.8% ABV.
Tripel Karmeliet: Brewed with oats, barley and wheat, Tripel Karmeliet has soft, full, rich grain character with hints of banana, vanilla, and a slight, pleasing bubble-gum aroma. A restrained hop bitterness offers perfect balance and a gentle counterpart to its substantial maltiness. 8.4% ABV.
All of this week’s featured items will be on sale!
Tasting hours for this free event will be from 4-6:45 pm, at Wyatt’s Outlaw Saloon, in the back of the store.
As always, all participants must present valid I.D.
