ASHEVILLE: Thursday 4/5 beer tasting at Bruisin’ Ales!

Posted by Pop The Cap on April 3rd, 2007

From the Bruisin’ Ales blog:

Thursday’s tasting in collaboration with Chad Walker of Freedom Beverage will showcase the beers of Weyerbacher from Easton, PA. Stop by our humble storefront this Thursday, April 5, anytime between the hours of 4:00 and 6:00pm to try a four-flight of these beers:

Hops Infusion
: “Hops Infusion is loaded with piney, citrusy notes, much hops complexity, and a strong foundation of malt underneath it all.” (6.2% ABV)

Blithering Idiot: Aside from being the best beer name ever, this barley wine is brewed “true to European style guidelines” with a flavor “on the malty side, yet not overly sweet.” (11.1% ABV)

Old Heathen Imperial Stout
: “Quite robust and roasty on the palate, Old Heathen imperial stout has a wonderfully fruity nose and a moderately dry finish. The taste is highly complex—perhaps you’ll even discern notes of espresso or chocolate.” (8.0% ABV)

QUAD: “Grand Champion in 2000, and again in 2004 at the United States Beer Tasting Championship, Weyerbacher QUAD is the first quadrupel style beer to be commercially brewed and bottled in the United States.” One of our favorite brews ever! (11.8% ABV)
