    Weekly Beer Tasting at Arrowine #Arlington

    Beer News & Tastings

    share on Twitter

    Thanks to all of you who took the time to come check out our Spring Beer Spectacular last weekend! The event was a great success and it’s all thanks to you and our guest-pourers. Keep an eye out; I’m hoping to have one of those bigger events every season and I’m already working on a Summer lineup!

    For now, let’s take a look at what’s happening this week. As always, beers listed are subject to selling out or delivery weirdness.

    Arrowine Saturday Beer Tasting
    March 29, 2014
    1-4 PM

    Bell’s Oberon Ale; Kalamzoo, MI–5.8% ABV: It’s always a special time of year when Oberon comes out; this American Wheat Ale from Bell’s is a herald of spring and this year that can’t come soon enough. You know it, you love it; come get your Oberon on! In stock; $9.99/6-pack bottles

    Ithaca Flower Power IPA; Ithaca, NY–7.5% ABV: I’ve gotten lots of requests for Ithaca Beer Company brews for years now, and I’m excited that their best-known beer, Flower Power IPA, is now available in Virginia! The hop character is more ‘West Coast’ than ‘Finger Lakes New York’, and is as packed with floral aromas as its name would have you beleive. Arriving Friday, 3.28.14.; $11.99/6-pack bottles

    Left Hand Wake Up Dead Nitro, Longmont, CO–10.2% ABV, 45 IBU: When I heard a few months back that Left Hand was doing a Nitro version of its excellent Wake Up Dead Imperial Stout, I immediately started bugging their Virginia distributor rep about it. Now that it’s here, everyone can try this dangerously easy-to-drink big Stout! Intense amounts of dark malt show flavors of dark fruits, licorice, and lots of chocolate with a streak of boozy heat that cuts through the noise and keeps Wake Up Dead from becoming cloying. In stock; $11.99/4-pack bottles

    Thanks as always for your support and I’ll see you this weekend!

    Hoplar Release Party at Hardywood Park #Richmond
    Hardywood Hoplar follows the wood-aging tradition of the earliest India Pale Ales, which were matured on oak. Rather than oak, we’ve selected the delicate wood of a fallen Virginia Tulip Poplar, which was TreeCycled by CitiWood and toasted for use in this hearty IPA. While this Poplar can no longer rustle in the wind or give shade, it is able to offer balance to the bright citrus and pine character from heaps of Cascade, Columbus and Summit hops with subtle notes of caramelized vanilla. Hardywood Hoplar is back and will be available in 750ml bottles, 4 packs, and draft all day.

    The party starts at 2pm with Hoplar and Nick Palmer (house blend of Hoplar and Singel) along with other seasonal drafts, live music and gourmet local vendors:

Virginia Craft Beer Events Happening Today, Feb 20th

Today is a full day of events. Well actually move of these events late this afternoon and this evening, but you get what I mean.
Here are few things you may have missed recently
If you were planning to head Lickinghole Creek on March 1st for Enlightened Despot release, the location has changed. They have moved it to Dover Hall in anticipation of a large crowd.
If you are not follow The Answer Brewpub on facebook, I would suggest you do. An Bui has been busy getting that place up and running. In fact there was a great article on Richmond.com about the upcoming brewpub.
The Pig and Pearl is hosting a Sam Adams Beer and Cigar Dinner on Wed Feb 26th. Check out the menu and pay attention to the desert course. If you are not familiar with the Sam Adams Utopia Cigar read about it here. http://blog.samueladams.com/utopiascigars/
So let’s get into our events.
