Weekly Beer Tasting at Arrowine
Beer News & TastingsSaturday Beer TastingAugust 17, 2013
Seasonal beers continue to roll in, but this week is about local breweries and rare imports. Check out this great lineup for Saturday’s beer tasting:
3 Brothers The Great Outdoors Pale Ale; Harrisonburg, VA–4.8% ABV, 40 IBU: Our first offering from the 3 Brothers brewery in Harrisonburg! Opened in December of last year, 3 Brothers is quickly making a name for itself among an increasingly crowded field of Virginia breweries. The Great Outdoors has a relatively high IBU for its ABV, contributing a sharpness and crispness that is often lacking in other Pale Ales.
3 Brothers Hoptimization IPA; Harrisonburg, VA–7.1% ABV, 71 IBU: The other 3 Brothers arrival for this week is this bold India Pale Ale. Rather than emulate the prototypical IPAs common to today’s market, the 3 Brothers use atypical hop varietals to make a beer that is specifically very citrus-driven and aggressively bitter. This is a great opportunity to try beers from a young brewery on the rise–don’t miss it!
Devils Backbone Ichabod Crandall Pumpkin Ale; Lexington, VA–5.1% ABV, 14 IBU: The hits keep coming from Devils Backbone! This new seasonal Ale is a lower-ABV Pumpkin Ale that uses Pilsner and Crystal Wheat malts along with oats to make for a smooth, approachable drink that carries some of the graham cracker/pumpkin pie flavors found in much bigger, sweeter Pumpkin Ales.
DC Brau/Epic Fermentation Without Representation; brewed at Epic Brewing Co., Salt Lake City, UT–8.0% ABV: A newer seasonal tradition, this week sees the return of this great collaborative effort between our own DC Brau and Utah’s Epic Brewing Company. What I’ve always enjoyed about FWR is the fact that it’s a Porter first, then a Pumpkin Ale. Respect for the base beer results in a brew where the spices take a more subtle tone, allowing the roasty dark malts and round mouthfeel to do most of the driving. Is this the Pumpkin Ale for people who don’t like Pumpkin Ales? Maybe not, but it’s definitely one for those of us looking for a greater sense of balance in our seasonal beers.
As always, check out other new arrivals below and keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook in case we decide to open anything Friday night. I’ll see you this weekend.

Hop Harvest 2013 with the Southern Belles at Hardywood Park #Richmond
Join us in preparation for RVA IPA at our 2nd annual Hop Harvest. We’re inviting all members of the Community Hopping Project to bring their homegrown hop cones this week (through Saturday) for inclusion in this season’s batch.Visit the tasting room between 2-9pm to catch a hop talk with head brewer Brian Nelson, education about hop bines, bring a contribution of hops (and your signature) for Sunday’s brew, enjoy Boka Tako Truck and catch The Southern Belles of Richmond, VA at 6:30.In the spring of 2012, Hardywood kicked off a “Community Hopping Project” by giving out 1,000 hop rhizomes to local gardeners interested in growing hops and contributing to a commercially brewed beer. The freshly picked local hops will serve as 100% of the hop bill of Hardywood’s RVA IPA . Given that most first year hop plants do not produce cones, we’re excited to accept many hops sourced through the project in addition to the experienced local growers and progressive farmers who participated last year.
