This special beer and whiskey sampling is available exclusively Veterans Day weekend, November 9-11. We’re super excited to offer the return of the special beer flight sampling during the Veterans Day weekend.
The Roggen and Whiskey flight represents a sample of beers brewed on premise and a whiskey sample. The beer offering is varieties of four 3-ounce samples of Imperial Roggenbier. The Imperial Roggenbier style is a high-gravity, German-style with rye as the primary grain. The whiskey is a ¾-ounce sample of Old Saloon from Glenrose Spirits. The distillery is located in North Rose, NY and supplies the barrels for aging the Imperial Roggenbier.
The four beer varieties are
Imperial Roggen, unaged, mentioned above
Vigoureux, Imperial Roggen aged over 2 months in new whiskey barrel
Vigoureux a Deux, Imperial Roggen aged in twice-used barrel
Vigoureux Special, Imperial Roggen aged in third-run barrel
Sampling all of the beers from the various barrels offers perspective on the flavor profiles from each. Partner and Head Brewer, Jon Paul Partee says “it’s amazing the differences in nose and flavor from the different barrels. One has a heavy scent of whiskey, another more whiskey flavor and the third picks up more oaky notes from the barrels.” He continues “capturing the unique flavors has been a really fun experiment for me. I’m looking forward to sharing it with craft beer and whiskey aficionados alike.”
Beth Partee, Partner and Craft Beer Parlour Manager notes “Vigoureux is available occasionally during the summer but it’s more of a cooler weather beer. Adding it to the tap list on Veterans Day weekend offers locals and weekend travelers alike an opportunity to sample this special beer.” She says, “this was a fun event when we offered it in 2017; I’m hoping Jon Paul brewed enough for all who want to participate.”
The Roggen and Whiskey flight will be offered during regular business hours Friday through Sunday. Quantities are limited.
In addition, Sunday Veterans Day, all active duty & veterans will receive their first pint or flight (excluding special roggenbier flight noted above) complimentary with proper ID. Thank you for your service, dedication & patriotism. Your service to keep America free is appreciated!
