Weekend Tastings

Friday & Saturday Tastings – 3 to 6pm

 

Friday, June 23 – Dry Dock Brewing Company
Dry Dock established itself early on by word-of-mouth, and put itself on the map when it won a gold 2006 World Beer Cup (only 6 months after the tiny brewery opened) for its HMS Victory ESB (now Dry Dock’s Amber Ale).
Dry Dock has since been the recipient of 22 GABF medals, the prestigious Brewers Association’s Small Brewery of the Year award, and seven World Beer Cup awards.
Dry Dock is also our Beer of the Month – taste and save!

Saturday, June 24 – Absolut

Every drop of Absolut Vodka is manufactured using ingredients from the area surrounding our distillery in Åhus, a tiny medieval village in the county of Skåne. From the hard winter wheat grown in the rich nearby fields, to the pristine water from our local deep well, and the continuous production in the distillery; everything, including the glass bottle itself, comes from here.

We call this process One Source. One wheat, one source of water, one location and one reason why any bottle of Absolut Vodka, anywhere in the world, has the same distinctive character and taste.

Friday, June 16 – Kahlúa
The story of Kahlúa begins in 1936 when four dudes, Senior Blanco, Montalvo Lara and the Alvarez Brothers, decided to go with their gut feeling. One of the guys had a great idea, two of them forked out rich and tasteful Arabica coffee, the fourth was a chemist who turned the idea into reality. Kahlúa is crafted from the finest ingredients that grow side by side in rural Veracruz, Mexico. The actual word Kahlúa has ties to ancient Arabic languages and is said to be slang for coffee.
This is your chance to enjoy a taste world famous Kahlúa!
Dewar’s
 
Dewar’s is famed the world over for quality blended whiskies and a flair for innovative advertising and promotions. Today Dewar’s is the fifth largest Blended whisky brand in the world, and the top selling Scotch Whisky in the USA.
It was John Dewar’s dynamic sons, John Alexander and Tommy Dewar, who made Dewar’s an international success. The brothers also founded the Aberfeldy Distillery in 1898, the physical and spiritual home of Dewar’s , which to this day produces the Single Malt Whisky that lies at the heart of every Dewar’s blend.
Have you tasted Dewar’s?

Friday, June 2 – Deerhammer Distillery

“Deerhammer Single Malt Whiskey is our cornerstone contribution to the field of American craft spirits. Starting its life as a porter-style 100% malted barley mash, it’s further shaped by open-air fermentation before passing through our stills and maturing in charred virgin white oak. Boasting a complex profile with notes of coffee and chocolate, you won’t mistake it for its Scottish or Irish counterparts. It’s a uniquely American product, with an exceptional taste of place, and we invite you to take your first sip with an explorer’s state of mind.”

Friday, May 26 – Diebolt Brewing Company

“Brewing is in our blood from my father’s father pressing grapes in his garage to our distant relatives currently making champagne in the Alsace Lorraine region of France.”

“It is this French ancestry and ties to historical French brewing regions that have influenced some of our beer styles. The rich cultural history of France inspired our art deco branding. It is our small town upbringing which makes us want to preserve that same sense of pride, community, and camaraderie that is slowly becoming extinct in small town USA. We want to recapture those feelings in our brews.” ~ Diebolt Founders

Saturday, May 27 – Black Shirt Brewing

“Most breweries attempt to satisfy every palate. That is not our mission. We focus on one style, exploring its potential, pushing its boundaries. We craft red ales.

No gimmicks.” ~ Black Shirt Founders

Friday, May 5 – Hornitos Tequila – 3 to 5pm
“Hailing from Tequila, Jalisco in Mexico, Hornitos® Tequila (named after the “little ovens” used to roast agave) was introduced to the world in 1950 by our founder Don Francisco Javier Sauza in honor of Mexican Independence Day.”
“Don Franco” was a passionate and principled man. It was his firm belief that pure, authentic tequila could only be made using 100% blue agave grown in the great state of Jalisco. In fact, he famously petitioned Mexico’s leaders to recognize this as a standard of quality for true tequila – and succeeded.”
“But of equal importance was Don Franco’s stance that quality tequila wasn’t just for the upper crust, but rather something that should be enjoyed by everyone. Which is why on bottles of Hornitos® you’ll see the words “nuestro tequila,” or “our tequila” – a testament to his generous and welcoming spirit, which lives on today.”

Saturday, May 6 – Patrón Tequila

The world’s highest-quality ultra-premium tequila, crafted from 100% Weber Blue Agave.
The Patrón Spirits Company was founded with the singular goal of producing “the best tequila in the world.” The founders took the 100% pure Weber Blue Agave, grown in Jalisco Mexico, and blended traditional techniques with modern technology. With the guidance of the renowned master distiller Francisco Alcaraz, the Hacienda Patrón, a state-of-the art distillery was built in Jalisco and designed with a core steeped in tradition.

Friday, April 28 – Prost Brewing
The Prost Story – “It was a chance meeting between restaurant veterans and experienced engineer at a bar next door to a former Denver brewery that began the Prost story. What resulted was a premium craft brewery, specializing in authentic German lager style beer – Prost Brewing. Prost, which is German for “Cheers!” is about session beers – drinks that are meant to be enjoyed over an extended period – during lunch or dinner, with friends, family and business associates.”
“Today, Prost is an award-winning brewery, and continues to use authentic 100% German products – grains, yeasts and hops, which are delivered from overseas. Passionate about their lager, everyone at Prost can articulate every step and every ingredient of the process.”

Saturday, April 30 – New Age wines
New Age wine from Argentina is the new wine craze this season. Known for its light, smooth flavor, New Age is sure to become a favorite of yours! This drink became a very popular drink in clubs and bars in Buenos Aires and is now catching on in the United States.
The most popular way to enjoy New Age is on the rocks with a slice of lime. This refreshing drink is called “Tincho” after the drinks creator, Valentin Eduardo Bianchi. He was given the nickname “Tincho” as a boy, a term of affection that, loosely translated, means “young Valentin” (as his grandfather was “older Valentin”). It was “Tincho” that first added the lime to the New Age White.

Friday, April 21 – Not Your Father’s Rootbeer
“At Small Town Brewery, we are dedicated to crafting gruit-inspired beers. Gruit-German for herbs-describes the ancient practice of bittering ales with roots, spices, flowers, and berries.

Saturday, April 15 – SKA Brewing Company
SKA is also our Beer of the Month; Taste and Save!
Somewhere out in Colorado, in the year nineteen hundred and ninety-five, two guys named Dave and Bill learned that while they loved gulping down good beer, they weren’t yet old enough to buy it. They figured an answer to their quandary would appear if they drank enough and listened to enough thinking music, also known as Ska. On the second Skaturday of Skatember it hit them. If they brewed their own beer they’d have all the beer they could ever want. And while they were at it, why not brew the most magnificent suds ever quaffed in their neck of the woods…or any other neck for that matter.

Friday, April 7 – SKA Brewing Company

Friday, March 31 – Arta Tequila
 
Arta is born of the idea that tequila could be both steeped in tradition and rooted in rebellion. As testament, we’ve perfected a line of pure 100% Weber Blue agave, small-batch, craft tequilas.
For over 11 generations, our ranchers have hand-planted and hand-picked Blue Weber agave on our 250-year-old family-run single estate in Jalisco, Mexico on the single estate where all of our agave is.
Each of our award-winning tequilas is hand bottled in our signature triangle bottle emblazoned with an iconic Dia de los Muertos skull.

Saturday, April 1 – Rocker Spirits
 
Rocker Spirits was built to reflect back to a time in our country when we forged and manufactured things with our own hands. The initial vision came about on one of Duston’s frequent trips to the junkyard, where he stumbled upon an old 1930s oil can. A longtime admirer of vintage American industrial design, Duston was struck by its unique design and functionality. That discovery served as an inspiration for several bar napkin sketches and thus the innovative Rocker Spirits bottle was conceived.
We want our spirits to evoke a reverence for the time-honored traditions of craftsmanship and commitment…and to herald many good times ahead.

Friday, March 24 – Sanitas Brewing Company
