We’re juuuuust beginning to smell the crispness of Fall in the air and we’re already inspired to showcase our favorite Autumn flavors. Join Kelsick Specialty Market on Thursday, October 1 from 5 to 7 p.m. for their monthly complimentary beer tasting!
Ace – Pumpkin Cider
Cinnamon, cloves, and allspice added to fermented apple juice to produce a 5% ABV cider which tastes just like pumpkin pie! It is light orange in color with a full, rich taste that makes you want more. It was the first Pumpkin cider to be made out West.
Ayinger – Oktober Fest-Märzen
Rich, golden color, slightly sweet, malty nose. Pairs well with Tellerfleisch (boiled beef), pretzels and radishes, goulash with dumplings, clam chowder, bock-wurst, weiner schnitzel, roasted chicken, pork, and sauerkraut.
Spaten – Optimator
A Classic German Double Bock Beer. Bottom-fermented “Doppel Bock” with a deep dark color and a rich roasted malt flavor.
Aecht – Schlenkerla Eiche Doppelbock
Complex smokiness in the “Schlenkerla Oak Smoke” is paired with the multifaceted bitterness of finest Hallertau aroma hops. With 8% alcohol and amber color it matures for months in the deep brewery cellars underneath Bamberg into a special treat for smoke beer lovers.
Lagunitas – Imperial Pilsner
California and Illinois
A Big n’ Juicy Imperial Pilsener, with Floral-Soft Aromas and Fruity Sweet flavors, this High Gravity Lager is like an Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove…
Deschutes – Fresh Squeezed IPA
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. Don’t worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer. Won bronze at the 2015 International Brewing Awards and silver at the North American Beer Awards.
Terrapin – Vapricot Double IPA
Brewed with apricot puree and ginger for a sweet and spicy profile, this multidimensional beer will help you see things more clearly.
Southern Tier – Warlock
Dark and mysterious huge roasted malted character, moderate carbonation and spicy pumpkin pie aroma. Pairs well with spicy bbq or try it as a float with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
On tap and ready to fill your growler:
Saucony Creek – Maple Mistress Ale
Deep, vibrant, caramel coloring with a foamy, clingy, off-white head. Nose of subtly sweet maple syrup, toasted pumpkin, a bready backbone, cream highlights, and a spice blend of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Weyeerbacher – Imperial Pumpkin Ale
Lots of pumpkin along with cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of cardamom and clove, giving this beer a spicy, full-bodied flavor. This truly is an Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Perfect with a slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream.
