Sechs, Chocolate, and Saison De Lente

We've got not one but TWO new beers on tap this weekend at the Tasting Room. Saison De Lente, our spring seasonal, is officially back – on draft and in bottles. Some of you may have had a chance to taste the cask of this beer last weekend, but for those of you who haven't tried this beer before, it's a crisp and hoppy Saison that's a bit lighter than Saison Rue and fitting for spring celebrations.

The next beer is the latest in our Melange series that's been brewed especially for Valentine's Day; this is number six - or No. Sechs as we've dubbed it. Melange no. Sechs is primarily made up of an experimental beer brewed with beets for a festive red color before cocoa nibs and rose petals are added. It's then blended with White Oak Sap (our bourbon barrel aged wheat wine) & bourbon barrel aged Rugbrød The resulting beer is 9% ABV and has an earthy flavor with a pleasant chocolate & vanilla nose and a subtle floral hint all wrapped in an incredibly smooth package. It's one Sechs-y beer!

On Valentine's Day, stop by the Tasting Room before your V-Day dinner plans for a little Sechs & Chocolate. We're working with local chocolatier Xuan Patiserrie of Fullerton and have developed a flight of craft beer and artisan chocolate so you can treat your sweetie. We think a Caramel Vanilla Fleur de Sel chocolate heart paired with Melange No. Sechs is a great way to spend V-Day. This is just one of the 3 beer and chocolate pairings that will be served on the flight. It should be a fun and unique way to spend your holiday. Here's a little shot of the chocolates - can't wait!

Finally, for you Korean BBQ fans, the Kogi BBQ Taco Truck will be at the Tasting Room on Saturday night from 6:30 – 9 pm. I think you're all pretty familiar with this concept by now – delicious Korean BBQ and Mexican fusion, all served from their handy mobile kitchen right on site at The Bruery.
