Weekly Beer Tasting at Arrowine
Beer News & TastingsSaturday Beer Tasting
August 31, 2013
*NOTE: This update was just release:
Beer Update 8.30.13.
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!
