    Sunday Bluegrass at Lickinghole Creek #Goochland
    We are beginning a Sunday Bluegrass Concert Series at LCCB.

    We’re kicking it off with the uber talented quartet of CLay Spokes.

    Music starts at 4:00 and goes’til 7:00.We’ll also be pouring Bourbon Barrelt Tripel all day. Beer Advocate has it currently rated as the #6 Most Popular Tripel there is. We’re down to our last bottles and will stop sales of it after this Sunday.

    Clay Spokes is an Americana band from Richmond, Virginia. Since its inception in August, 2013, the band has been performing its mix of original and traditional acoustic music throughout some of Virginia’s finest venues, like Cary Street Cafe, The Camel, and Fellini’s #9. The Spokes released their self-titled debut LP in February, 2014, and are now working on new material and expanding their touring radius. In their short time together, the band has already shared the stage with such regional stars as Larry Keel and Natural Bridge, Ben Shirley, and The Northerners.

    The band’s music features songwriting and lead vocals from guitarists Son House the Second and Tyler Longest, Kent South on vocals, lap steel, slide guitar, and harmonica, David Adley on vocals and fiddle, Zach Hudgins on bass, and Rene Carrillo on vocals and percussion.

    Throughout their time together, Clay Spokes have been garnering rave reviews, being called “a beautiful down-home answer to the call of the James River” (Furious George), praised for “embracing the subtle and simple” and compared to Richmond icon Matthew E. White for their use of “supple baritone, experimental melodies, and minimalist, disappearing vocals” (Sounds of RVA).

    Basque Cider Tasting – Beer Education Wednesdays at The Birch Bar #Norfolk

    A Cider Tasting

    for Beer Education Wednesday

    The Birch is gettin’ into cider…look for a more extensive cider list in the coming weeks!

    TXOPINONDO THE SAGARNO : France

    The Sagarno (literally “apple wine” in Basque language) is a fermented beverage made from apples, matured in wood barrels, fresh and fruity, ideal to taste very fresh (12°C) with grilled fish or meat. We produce it following a traditional method from local and abroad apples. -

    txopinondo.com/

    SARASOLA SIDRO : Spain

    Unfiltered & Unpasteurized

    Sarasola Sagardoa is a traditional Basque cider from a cider house located in the apple growing hills of Astigarraga.

    Pouring & Serving: Since Basque cider is “natural” and not sparkling the cider is poured by holding the bottle up high above the head and pouring into a glass that is held just below waiste level. Pouring from elevation allows the cidre to pick up some natural carbonation when it hits the glass.

    Basque Cider History & Tradition:

    Source: Wikipedia

    Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sagardotegi

    Most Basque cider, as indeed most cider varieties in Spain, is called “natural” because unlike many other European varieties it is still, not sparkling. It normally contains 4-6% alcohol and is served directly from the barrel in a sagardotegi.

    The more recent traditions surrounding the sagardotegis hail back to the time when buyers interested in purchasing cider from a particular maker would bring along food for the tasting as it is considered best when taken with a meal.

    This soon evolved into gastronomical tradition with the sagardotegis becoming a cross between a grill and a cider house. In a traditional sagardotegi, three courses are taken:

    * starter: a cod omelette or cod with peppers

    * main: a steak

    * desert: cheese (often Idiazabal cheese), quince and nuts
