June Beverages: The Light, The Dark and The Fruity
The sun is finally starting to thaw us out from such a long winter, which means we need to evaluate what to drink this summer:
Perfect for drinking in the sun, is Professor Fritz Briem’s 1809 Berliner Weisse. Berliner Weisse style brews are light, slightly sour wheat beers that generally have a lower ABV. Lighter in body than your typical Spotted Cow or Big O, 1809 Berliner Weisse has a tart, lemony taste that balances out the wheat. This unique style won’t be as heavy as a full-fledged wheat beer, but it measures in at 5% ABV. Funky, yet refreshing.
On the complete other end of the spectrum, we recently added the incredibly smooth Imperial Stout by Nøgne Ø to our beer lineup. This beer is a decadent one, with roasty malt and rich dark chocolate and coffee flavors. She also packs a punch, clocking in at around 9% ABV. Nøgne Ø (which translates to ‘Naked Island’) hails from Norway, where their vision is to bring diversity and innovation into commercial brewing. This Imperial Stout is velvety smooth, with a little bit of bittersweetness that shapes it into the perfect after-pizza beer.
In the event that you’re needing something to satisfy the sweet tooth, look no further than our seasonal sangria. Everyone loves a good traditional red sangria, so we like to try some funky things with our white sangria. June’s signature concoction is dandelion-rhubarb-cherry, made with our own white wine blend and vermouth. Sweet and refreshing, with delightful floral notes that perfectly sets a summer tone.
