Beer News & Tastings

share on Twitter

More new breweries are becoming available to us every week, it seems. This week I'm happy to announce the arrival of Hardywood Park Craft Brewery from Richmond, Virginia! The Hardywood beers have been long-awaited by many of us up here (myself included), so this is good news indeed. Look for us to be showing off the Hardywood beers on our tasting table very soon.

This Saturday, we'll be sampling one of my favorite limited-run Dogfish Head beers, along with some great new holiday-themed brews (yes, it's that time already)!

As always, arrivals and tasting lineups are subject to sell-outs and assorted delivery weirdness.

Arrowine Saturday Beer Tasting
November 16, 2013
1-4 PM

Port City Tidings, Alexandria, VA; 7.8% ABV:
Port City's holiday seasonal is back! Tidings is a Belgian Blonde-style Ale brewed with Virginia wheat and Maryland wildflower honey. The beer itself has a  bright, smooth feel thanks to the honey, which contributes a sweet flavor that rounds out the spicy Belgian yeast. Arrives Friday, 11.15.13.

Dogfish Head Bitches Brew, Milton, DE; 9% ABV, 38 IBU:
The wait is over for this year's version of Dogfish Head's excellent blended Imperial Stout. Dogfish Head makes three big Stouts and one Honey Ale with gesho root, then blends them together into an incredibly balanced, strong beer that shows bold chocolate flavors, notes of honey, and even a subtle floral note. In stock!

Mikkeller Red/White Xmas, brewed at De Proefbrouwerij, Hijfte, Belgium; 8% ABV: This is a seasonal favorite at Arrowine, and it always brings a smile to my face for sure. Red/White Xmas is a blend of a Belgian-style Witbier and a hoppy Red Ale, packaged in 1.5L magnum bottles. This is a unique beer, with elements of both styles overlapping and blending to create something unlike anything else offered during the holiday season. The piney hop notes of the red work with the spiciness of the Wit while the Wit's bitter orange peel adds an extra element to the fruity hop character and some acidity to the malts. In stock!

Mikkeller Hoppy Lovin' Xmas, brewed at De Proefbrouwerij, Hijfte, Belgium; 7.8% ABV:
This is a new Mikkeller holiday Ale for us in Virginia. Hoppy Lovin' Ale is a big IPA brewed with ginger and pine needles. The ginger adds a sweetness that allows the big grapefruit and pine flavors to cut without overwhelming the palate. In stock!

We're receiving two additional Mikkeller seasonal offerings this week--the always sought-after Santa's Little Helper and the new-to-us To From Via holiday Porter! These won't last long, so grab 'em while you can. All Mikkeller beers should be arriving Thursday, 11.14.13.

Take a look at our other great new arrivals for the week below, and I'll see you this weekend.
