School Is Back and as we move into Fall Buies was the stuff to help ease into the new season. We have Brewery Bhavana (https://brewerybhavana.com/) joining us for our Beer tasting on Wednesday and then for an extra special treat we have Cugino Forno (https://cuginoforno.com/pages/winston-salem) bringing some of their delicious pizza alongside our wine tasting with Johnson Brothers (https://www.johnsonbrothers.com/locations/north-carolina/) . New Beers this Week! Finback, Head…space, West Coast IPA, 5.5% – West coast IPA dry hopped with Citra, Simcoe, Cascade and Centennial. Brewed in collaboration with Foundation from Portland Maine. Aecht Schlenkerla, Weichsel Rotbier, 4.6% -Rotbier (i.e. red lager) used to be common in Franconia. The city of Nuremberg in particular was known for its Rotbier. Since its production was extremely laborious, Rotbier was replaced in the 19th century by Braunbier (i.e. brown lager) which was produced using modern, simpler brewing methods. It was not until 1997 that the beer style was revived. For Aecht Schlenkerla Weichsel Rotbier, the malt is dried over fire with cherry wood (not over beech wood fire as with classic smoked beer). In contrast to the spicy beech-smoked malt, the cherry wood smoked malt has a fruity, almost sweet smoke aroma and provides a copper-red color in the glass. The aroma hops add berry notes to the multi-layered smoke flavor. Foothills, Pumpkin Ale, 5.7% -Traditional Spices and caramel malts brewed with real pumpkin make this crisp, dry ale a fall favorite. It might give Mom’s pumpkin pie some serious competition. RiNo Juicy American Pale Ale, 5.8% – RiNo APA is inspired by Epic’s experience in the New England-style IPAs and the art and creativity of the Denver neighborhood River North aka RiNo. Centennial & Mosaic. Rothaus, Pils, Bavarian Pilsner, 5.1% – The best aromatic hops from Tettnang and the Hallertau, local malt from spring barley and the purest spring water from the Black Forest give every Rothaus Pils Tannenzäpfle its uniquely spicy and fresh taste New Wines this Week!! Salwey, Pinot Noir Rose, Germany – Salwey Pinot Noir Rosé only gets its delicate salmon color from the brief skin contact during pressing. It is deliberately fresh and light and represents a very classy, elegant rosé style with a moderate alcohol content and an invigorating acid structure. A Rosé that convinces with the unaffected, natural fruit from the Pinot Noir grape. Suggested Food Pairings: Turkey and Chicken De La Boue, Chardonnay, Oregon – Picked early as if it were for sparkling wine. Whole cluster pressed upon arrival at the winery, we hyper-oxidize the juice, turning the liquid brown in order to saturate unstable compounds. The juice was then cold settled for 48 hours before being racked to neutral French barrels for fermentation. Used Chardonnay grapes to inoculate with native yeast. Fermentation was cold and slow to develop aromatics and retain freshness. Aged in Sur Lie in neutral French oak to build complexity and allowed to go through full malolactic fermentation at low temperatures. Bright citrus, salinity and racy acidity that will calm down with age. This is a lean Chardonnay that draws inspiration from Chablis. Suggested Pairings: Shellfish Elouan, Chardonnay, Oregon – Mandarin Orange Slices candy aroma sets the tone for this wine—everything is rich and amplified. Other aromas, like ripe pear a nd spearmint, are more restrained. The apricot and banana-pudding flavors are flanked by traces of rosemary and sage. Suggested Food Pairings: Mushroom based dishes Oenops, Aplá (Απλά) Dry Rosé, Greece – Strawberry, blood orange, apricot, minerals and a touch of salinity. Suggested Food Pairings: Sea Food Mortellito, Tuttu, Rosso – Lots of Strawberry and red fruit notes with hints of anise & thyme, with a smooth finish. Suggested Food Pairings: Beef, Pasta Exploring the Enchanting World of Italian Wine Indulge in the rich tapestry of flavors and heritage with a journey through the captivating realm of Italian wine.
