Craft Beer Happenings: Fonta Flora

Every week we bring you beer tasting highlighting the ever changing world of craft beer and this week we are losing our minds over the appearance of Fonta Flora beers in MA! These genius hippie witches have been making some of the world’s most fascinating, complex, and original beers in Morganton NC for a few years now and we’re overwhelmed with joy to get to offer them up to y’all. Unlike most American craft breweries, Fonta Flora seeks to emphasize and celebrate the craft beer as an agricultural product, as the product of farming, ecology, and culture. Most breweries are making beer with ingredients from all over the world and then calling it local, and they’re also making beers without any consideration for the actual ingredients themselves. No one ever asks who grew the hops or where the malts came from, that is unless you’re the people at Fonta Flora. Prepare to have your minds blown by the reality of Terroir Beer!

Mead Appreciation Day

Winter is coming… which means it’s mead season! We’ve brought in a whole new line-up of spectacular meads from around the world and we’ll be pouring them all night. This oft-maligned beverage (re: that Bud ad where the king executes the man who brought him mead) deserves a more prominent place at the table and respect for how diverse and exciting the drink can really be. We’ll have open a reserve bottle from 2004, an ancestral-style mead from South Africa aged in oak, Nordic mead, and the whole line-up from House Bear in Amesbury MA so you know it’s gonna be sick.

Mystic v. Pohjala

This week we’re pitting the perfect, dainty, pale Belgian/American style beers of Chelsea’s own Mystic Brewery against the massive, so-dark-it-consumes-light brews of Estonia’s Pohjala! What’s that? You didn’t know that Estonian’s made beer and that it’s absolutely freaking amazing? Check us out on Thursday and get yourself educated!

Bogedal and Alvinne Vintage Beer Tasting

Just got our hands on some beautiful old bottles from the great Bogedal and Alvinne and we're gonna open that shit up for y'all! Bogedal is Denmark's smallest brewery, producing only 3000 cases of beer per year from floor malted heritage grain their work themselves. Their beers have become some our all time favorites for their age-worthiness and deep complexity. Alvinne is one of Belgium's most interesting breweries, producing experimental beers from their house native yeast strain which they call Morpheus. All of their beers are built to last and show immense complexity. If you're a fan of massive barrel aged, old beers then you'll want to be here for this.

Best Cider Tasting Ever? Best Cider Tasting Ever!

cidertasting53118.jpg

Cider, it's the adult beverage that brings us back to our childhood.  Sometimes it's too child-like- sweet with almost no distinctive character to speak of.  Truth is, cider has been a true alcoholic beverage for a very long time, and we've looked across the market to find some truly spectacular fermented apple beverages. 

These aren't just your local fare, we've got ciders from Maine to Spain, and a couple of places in between.  Stop by from 5-7 to see what the real deal is all about

The Times, They Are A Changin' But Modern Times Is Still Great

moderntimesbeertasting.jpg

 

Come gather 'round people, but not too close because it is darn hot in New England right now.  This brief summer tour makes us think those Coors Light ads with all that ice and watery beer look good. Never fear, we've got better. We're opening up fresh cans of Modern Times goodness. 

The San Diego brewers know a thing or two when it comes to breaking the heat, and we're psyched to have Ice - their very first pils, in stock along with Lomaland - their tasty saison, Orderville - that hazy to goodness Mosaic IPA, and Blazing World - their dank hoppy amber ale. 

These guys bring the good stuff, so don't miss out.

Honest Weight, Oxbow, and TRVE Brewing Tasting

Honest Weight, Oxbow, and TRVE Brewing Tasting

image_01 (2).png

These beers are made for drinking, and we'd probably drink them all on our own if we didn't have to share.  We're pulling brews from MA, ME, and CO.  Honest Weight is making it's premiere in our store, and we're featuring A Pattern Language and Roman Mars.

Honest Weight Brewing is based out of Orange, MA. Yes, that is a real town, and they're dedicated to making great farmhouse beers. A Pattern Language  is a Sour Farmhouse Ale fermented with pureed plums and hopped with locally grown hops from Four Star Farms in Northfield, MA.  Roman Mars  is a "Bière de Mars", a subgroup of "Bière de Garde" (literally beer for keeping) that is brewed in the colder months of the year.  This is a red wine barrel aged beer conditioned with Brettanomyces.  Listen, if you don't buy this, I will, because it is delicious. 

Oxbow Brewing is based in Newcastle, ME, and they take their rural roots to heart, crafting beers that are true old world takes on the old world beer styles. We've had many of their fine beers on our shelves before, but this time around, we're opening Catalyst and Punch Brook. The first is a mixed fermentation farmhouse ale brewed with estate honey, and Punch Brook is a recent release, an unfiltered farmhouse refermented with mixed cultures and aged on raspberries in stainless steel tanks with their house lager Luppolo as the base beer.

Last, and certainly one of my favorite breweries in the store is TRVE Brewing. These heavy metal aficionados make fantastic farmhouse and mixed fermentation beers. This time around we're pouring Curseda mixed culture sour pale ale, and Life's Trade which is without a doubt one of my favorite beers of all time, a traditional farmhouse beer that has been fermented in wine puncheons.  

These fresh beers will have us singing, and we'll be pouring them from 5-7. Join us.
