    Weekly Beer Tasting at Arrowine

    1:00-4:00 pm

    *NOTE: This update was just release:

    Beer Update 8.30.13.

    Good Afternoon,

    A couple quick notes on what’s happening here in the beer department this weekend:

    –Stone Enjoy By 9.13.13. IPA is just about gone already, so I don’t expect to be able to pour it on Saturday. If I can, I will, but it looks like it will be sold out again by Friday afternoon.

    –For Saturday’s beer tasting, expect to see some of the new Evil Twin and/or Stillwater arrivals on the table in lieu of the Enjoy By.

    –Devils Backbone Ichabod Crandall Pumpkin Ale did not arrive as scheduled, so it looks like that might be done for the year.

    –I meant to mention it in yesterday’s email, but Bell’s Two Hearted Ale is back in stock.

    Apologies for any inconvenience. I’ll see you this weekend.


    –Nick Anderson, Beermonger, Arrowine

    Hops and gourds, hops and gourds–all we’re doing this week are hops and gourds. Check out some great Imperial IPAs and Pumpkin Ales on tasting this Saturday, and as always the new arrivals here in Arrowine’s beer department.

    Dogfish Head Punkin Ale; Milton, DE–7.0% ABV, 28 IBU: The perennial favorite is back in stock! Dogfish Punkin is a robust Brown Ale made with pumpkin, spices, and a hint of brown sugar. Much like the Epic/DC Brau Pumpkin Porter, Punkin Ale lets the malt carry the day as a roasty, smooth counterpoint to the spices, keeping them from overwhelming the palate.

    Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA; Milton, DE–7.5% ABV: A blend of Dogfish Head’s 60 and 90 Minute IPAs, 75 Minute is punched up with the addition of maple syrup from head Dogfish Sam Calagione’s family’s farm and dry-hopped with whole-leaf Cascade hops. Bottle conditioning gives 75 a natural carbonation–fine and smooth on the palate. This never lasts long when it’s available.

    Stone Enjoy By 9.13.13. IPA; Escondido, CA–9.4% ABV: After last week’s disappointing one-case shipment, we managed to snag a few extras and you know what that means–it’s time to stock up and drink up! Enjoy By IPA is an Imperial IPA with ripe, juicy citrus hop flavors and a fine backbone. Each batch is labelled with it’s ‘enjoy by’ date, in an initiative to better inform drinkers of the importance of enjoying hopping Ales fresh, when those hops are expressing themselves in their starkest terms. If you haven’t had opportunity to try this limited and popular IPA, here’s your chance!

    Thanks for making what we do possible. I’ll see you this weekend.

    Beer School at Brew
    Tomorrow (Saturday, 8/31) at 4 pm, Brew will be hosting our weekly beer school. The topic this week is IPAs. They come in many different varieties that have startlingly vast differences within the same style. Beer school is free as always and there will be beer samples and good times had by all (if you so decide you actually come out). Hope to see y’all out here!


A Look Ahead of Events happening In Virginia Craft Beer for Aug 31st – Sept 5th

It’s Labor Day Weekend!!!
I really should be sitting on my deck with a nice cold beer but alas that’ll come later. First I got some things to get out for I retire for the evening.
First I was checking out Fuggled.net on things happening in the Charlottesville area. Well I am not sure how I missed this but Three Notch’d Brewing is set to open their doors today at 4pm. They are located at 946 Grady Ave, Charlottesville VA 22903. If you are in the area stop by and support your local brewery. They will only have 2 beerss on tap initially but will have more soon enough.
Speaking of openings. Young Veterans Brewing located at 2505 Horse Pasture Rd, Virginia Beach, Virginia 23453 will have their own Grand Opening on Sept 7th. .Later in Sept Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery in Powhatan County will be opening their doors to the public. I haven’t seen times nor exact address but I’ll get that up as soon as I can.

August is coming to end and so is Virginia Craft Beer Month. It’s been a full month of activities. Sept is going to keep pace as we near the Oktoberfest season. In fact I have a bunch to get entered. So get out those old Lederhosen and Dirndl, get that liver in shape and drink!

So with that let me get out events happening this week
First on Sat Aug 31st, Legend Brewing and Lost Rhino Brewing are teaming up for Tubes and Taps on the James River. Now the actual tubing on the James River portion is sold out. However, you can still head out to Legend Brewing and enjoy brews from both companies.
Also on Sat. Foggy Ridge Cider is holding an afternoon of Music and Cider. From Noon until 5 come and sample some cider and listen to some great music. Heck bring a pinic and make it a whole afternoon. Discounts for bottles purchased during the afternoon.
Finally on Sat, Williamsburg Lodge is a Taste the Tradition event. Sample some of the industry’s best wines, spirits, craft brews, and artisan cheeses as well as meet the brewers, wine makers and cheese makers. Advance tickets are required.
On Sunday Sept 1st, Strangeways Brewing is holding their weekly Beer and Waffles Brunch starting at noon.
On Tuesday Sept 3rd, Whole Foods Shortpump will have their monthly Beer School starting at 6:30. You’ll need to pre-register for this class.
Finally on Thursday Sept 5th, MacDowell’s Brewing Kitchen will host a Devils Backbone vs Three Brother’s Tap Takeover starting at 5:30pm. They will have taps dedicated to both breweries as well as the debut of their collaboration.

Thus concludes this week’s updates. I’ll continue posting the daily updates. You can also follow me on Twitter for any last minute updates.
