5th Anniversary Tasting May 30 2017, 0 Comments
On June 2, Bier Cellar officially turns 5 years old. It's been a fun, crazy and delicious 5 years of curating a selection of what we consider to be the best beer, wine, cider and mead that we can get our hands on to offer to you. Five years is a big milestone for us, and so we decided to throw a party for you guys to thank you for your support since we opened our door.
So on June 10th from 12-6pm we are hosting a tasting. The premise is simple, we made a list of the breweries, importers and distributors who have been a big part of our first five years, and those we think will be a big part of the next five years. We have broken the day up in to hour long segments, with a couple tastings going for each hour. Here is the tentative schedule, which is subject to change/get shifted around a bit, but as we get closer it will get locked down 100%:
Allagash Brewing (Pouring Avance, Emile, Little Brett, Map 40 & Dawnlander)
Bissell Brothers Brewing
Foundation Brewing & Cascade Brewing & Almanac Brewing
Austin Street Brewery & Orono Brewing
Mast Landing Brewing
Shelton Brothers Importers (Pouring Grimm Double Negative, Prairie Spaghetti Western aged in Grappa Barrels)
Some breweries will be bringing beers for sale, some just to sample. This will be the release of the 2017 batch of Tropical Storm, our collaboration with Liquid Riot we originally did for our 4th Anniversary that was such a wild success that it had to come back for another year. This beer is a kettle sour that is fermented with guava, passionfruit and mango puree. This year the beer will be packaged in 16oz four packs for Summer time crushing.
Mast Landing will also use this party as the retail launch of their Wessie IPA. Never before canned when it was brewed twice last year, this is a West Coast Style IPA that fits in with the rest of the amazing IPA's coming out of that brewery.
Allagash Brewing is digging some sours out of their cellar for sale including Avance and Emile.
Shelton Brothers has provided us with some Grimm and Prairie beers for sampling and some Cantillon Classic Gueuze for sale.
So like we said, we planned a party for you guys as a thanks for supporting our little shop for 5 years. We hope you get a chance to swing in a try some world class beer.
Cheers from our whole staff.
