It’s that time again, so get your notebooks & pencils ready because this month we’ll be doing some learnin’ about hops. Whether you are an IPA queen or a resolved Stout lover, every beer girl should know about the flavor, aroma, and bittering properties that hops bring to beer. So come on down to our new HQ, Southern Brewing & Winemaking on February 25th from 7 – 9 and learn a thing or 2 while sampling 3 selections from Southern’s Hopburst series. And, who better to teach us than hop-blogger & fellow Angel Cindy Lyons.
Featured beers will be:
• Summit/Amarillo – This version of our Hopburst Pale Ale features Summit and Amarillo hops. The Summit hops contribute distinct earthy onion and garlic tones that combine nicely with the floral and tropical fruit characteristics of the Amarillo hops. These two hops contribute a stronger bitterness to the beer than normally found in our Hopburst series that will delight IPA lovers.
• Simcoe/Citra – The Simcoe/Citra hop combination was the first in our Hopburst series and is even better this time around! The Simcoe hops provide passion fruit, pine, earth and citrus characteristics while the Citra hops add strong citrus and tropical tones. This pale ale is an excellent, refreshing brew that you can sip on all night long.
• Palisade – Known for apricot, grass and clean floral characteristics. We don’t have much of a description for this one because this is the first time they’ve ever brewed it and it’s still in the works!
Beer appropriate snacks will be provided.
Social hour starts at 6, meeting promptly at 7.
