This is a mighty special event for beer lovers, and enthusiasts! We’re bringing in six Samuel Smith bottled beers for your tasting pleasure!
Join us on Saturday, April 12 from 4pm – 8pm in the Rookery Bar to taste through flights or glass-pours of our favorites from Yorkshire’s oldest brewery, rightfully named The Old Brewery at Tadcaster, which was established in 1758.
Chef Furuta will offer traditional food from the British Isles so you can sit-back, relax on the leather couches, and guzzle the brews of your choice! If you taste all 6, we will enter you in a drawing – thanks to the folks at Merchant du Vin, for a home-bar kit. And, because this beer is so special, we will be giving away Samuel Smith glasses to everyone who tastes through all 6 beers! If that isn’t special treatment, we don’t know what is!
We do hope you will join us for this month’s version of the Brewer’s Social! And, if you can’t make it on Saturday, the beers will be on all of our menus next week. Stop by and be beer-nerdy with us! We want to cheers with you!
THE BEER LINEUP
Samuel Smith’s Organic Cider (5% ABV):
Bright straw-gold with light body and excellent clarity; clean, pure apple flavor with a gentle, crisp apple-blossom finish. USDA Certified Organic, naturally gluten-free and sparklingly refreshing.
Samuel Smith’s Organic Pale Ale (5% ABV, 31 IBU):
A deep-amber-colored, classic malt-accented English pale ale with caramel notes and a soft fruitiness leading to an herbal hop finish.
Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale (5% ABV, 31 IBU):
Brown Ale, a Specialty of the North of England, is one of the oldest English brewing styles, mentioned in literature in the 16th century. Walnut-like color and a palate of hazelnuts. Wonderful balance of roasted crystal malt and aromatic hops. Long, clean finish.
Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout (5% ABV, 32 IBU):
A lost style introduced to modern palates by Samuel Smith’s, this Oatmeal Stout is almost opaque, with unusually silky texture and complex, medium-dry velvet palate with roasty, mocha character and a bittersweet finish.
Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout (5% ABV, 28 IBU):
Chocolate from organic cocoa nibs beautifully melted to the full bodied, roasty character of a sessionable stout – a magical match! Aromatic and satisfying, with a bold chocolate aroma.
Samuel Smith’s Organic Apricot Ale (5.1% ABV, 14 IBU):
A perfect marriage of brewery with orchard: sweet, summery flavor with slight stone-fruit tartness. Glowing, hazy orange color; full, smooth body.
