Arcadia Tap Happenin’

THURSDAY 03/08/2018

Arcadia will be joining us March 9! Don’t miss out.

They’ll be bringing 3 classic Arcadia varieties:

  • Brigid’s Irish Red – The story of Brigid (pronounced “Breed”) is one shrouded in mystery; equal parts pagan history and Catholic sainthood, the one thing that seems to hold true is that she embodies the fiery spirit of Ireland. Our paean to her is held within the confines of a fine Irish-style red ale, a proud exultation that is bright, bold, and smooth. Brewed with molasses for a hint of jammy dark fruit, low-medium hints of earthy hops come through, and creamy malt provides a calming backbone. A modest alcohol content keeps everything convivial, as there’s plenty to toast come early spring.
  • Whitsun – Brewed in the style of a mid-19th century English Festival Ale, this unfiltered wheat beer displays a translucent orange color topped with a creamy, white head. Wheat enhances the mouthfeel of the beer and produces pleasant bread-like notes while Michigan honey provides a caramelized sweetness in the flavor profile. This beer is spiced with orange peel and coriander and small amounts of three hop varieties pleasantly counterbalances the sweetness.
  • God Save The Pils – This unfiltered Pilsner-style beer is loaded with hops from the “Garden of England”, the name given to the famed Hop Yards of Kent, and brewed with 100% English malted barley. A very easy drinking lager with a hop character that will please both Pilsner and IPA fans.
    The origins of this collaboration beer started with a visit to the medieval market town of Faversham in Kent, England, home of the storied Battle of Britain. There we met the Master Brewers of Shepherd Neame, the oldest brewer in England, where art and science has been blended into award-winning, world-class beers since 1698. Together we sought to design a beer that is respectful to our brewing traditions, yet unique in its execution. The result – our first ever lager beer!
