New Table Beer from Westbrook! – Beer Education Wednesdays at The Birch Bar #Norfolk
THIS WEEK’S EDUCATION
Westbrook’s Table Beer
“This Czech-style pilsner is brewed with 100% pilsner malt and a blend of old and new world hops. Dry-hopping adds a hop accent to the nose, while cold fermentation with a a classic Czech lager yeast emphasizes the fresh grainy flavor of the malt and spiciness of the kettle hops. This beer provides plenty of flavor and nuance to be enjoyed on its own, but is also simple enough to get out of the way when food and/or conversation is the focus. We could drink it everyday!”
This beer is a collaboration done with the bar Beer Table in New York. The first in the series was brewed by Stillwater! Come out tonight and drink this delightfully hoppy pilsner on draft!

Victory Brewing Tasting at Beer Run#CharlottesvilleVictory Brewing CompanyTasting Wednesday 3/5
At Victory we believe that the very best ingredients are necessary in order to brew the very best beer. Here, German malted barley, a mix of European and American whole flower hops, 45 unique yeast strains (for our wide variety of beers), and the highest quality local water is blended to create our refined brews.
Note: Victory is one of only a few breweries in the country that uses whole flower hops. While almost all other breweries used pelletized hops, Bill and Ron insist on using the whole-flower varieties. This unprocessed form of hops imparts better flavor and aroma to beer.
On The Tasting Table 6 – 8 PM
Swing Session Saison: Swing. It’s a lively jazz rhythm, a vigorous sway or even a serendipitous change of view. It’s also the welcome jolt of joy you’ll experience upon your first sip of this session saison. 4.5% abv.
Headwaters Pale Ale: Malted barley, hops and yeast are the building blocks of beer. But none of these elements would exist without water, the essence of life. The waters that feed our brewery begin just over a dozen miles away, making for spectacularly pure and vital water for brewing. Having worked with watershed advocacy groups since our inception, we value our headwaters, our source, in many ways. We think you’ll value them as well when you taste this firmly crisp and aromatically arousing pale ale. 5.1% abv.
Prima Pils: Prima! It’s a German exclamation of joy. It’s a recognition of accomplishment. It’s what escaped from our lips the first time we sampled this mighty pilsner recipe. With heaps of whole flower European hops and fine German malts, Victory achieved the bracing herbal bite and smooth malt flavor that we sought. Prima… an exclamation of Victory! Prost! 5.3% abv.
Golden Monkey Belgian Style Tripel: A magical, mystical Monkey whose golden soul glows with the wisdom of the ages. This warming, flavored ale is rich in the spirited tradition of Belgian-inspired brewing. This Golden Monkey is both playfully delightful and profoundly satisfying. Exotic spices from the East round out this global journey to joy. 9.5% abv.
