Check out the lineups being featured at each location below!

 

BEAUMONT:

Karbach Brewmaster Eric Warner joins us to sample the following from Karbach’s core line-up:

Karbach Weisse Versa Wheat Ale – This hybrid wheat beer is a combination of Hefeweizen yeast and spices common to Belgian style white beers. The result is a complex but refreshing wheat beer with flavors and aromas of citrus peel, coriander, banana and wheat.

Karbach Love Street Summer Seasonal – A Kölsch style beer brewed with German hops including Tettnang, Spalt, Saphir and Hallertauer. The golden colored beer has a predominately grassy flavor with other notes of grapefruit, orange, lemon and coriander.

Karbach Sympathy for the Lager – This lager is prepared with extras steps and time, similar to many brewing processes in Czechoslovakia, to create a lager that is crisp and refreshing. Karbach utilizes a process called floatation, giving a delicate bitterness, before the beer is cold-aged for several weeks. The German hops give a floral, spicy aroma and the Vienna malts produce an amber color and malt sweetness.

Karbach Hopadillo IPA – Referred to asTexas Style IPA” by brewmaster Eric Warner, this unique ale combines American, German and English hops to give a big and bold hop aroma with citrus character and earthy spiciness.

Karbach Rodeo Clown Double IPA – Rodeo Clown doubles down with a malty richness and strong hop character, typical of a DIPA. The aromas are malty with citrus, spice and floral hop characteristics.

Karbach El Hopadillo Negro – An American black ale, with a smooth hop taste and a cool, dry finish. Flavors of citrus, pine and roasted malt lace the brew.

Karbach Hop Delusion – A West Coast Style Imperial IPA, Hop Delusion has an explosive aroma of citrus and tropical fruit thanks to loads of Chinook, Simcoe, Falconers Flight and Mosaic hops. A slight caramel malt sweetness holds this medium bodied brew together.

 

 

TEXAS CITY:

This month’s Texas City location hosts Pedernales Brewing Company’s Brewmaster Peter McFarlane and founder Lee Hereford as they serve up these five fantastic beers:

Pedernales Classic Hefe-Weizen – This classic unfiltered beer stays true to the Bavarian style with a strict yeast strain creating distinctive flavors of banana, apricot and clove. Light, cloudy and golden in color, this brew boasts a thick, frothy head and has received top marks at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, CO.

Pedernales Lobo Lito – A full bodied, true Reinheitsgebot quality Pilsner beer made using Pilsner malt barley, Weihensteffan yeast, Saaz hops and Hill County well water. Its slightly lower alcohol content and thirst quenching, slightly hoppy finish make it the perfect summer-time beer.

Pedernales Lobo Lager – This pilsner beer starts with Texas Hill Country well water and Czech hops. Brilliantly crisp and clear with a dense foam, light golden color and subtle hop aroma. The flavor is a delicate balance of expertly malted barley and carefully selected hops.

Pedernales Lobo Negro – A true “Dunkel,” or dark brown lager, with a spicy maltiness that is neither sweet nor too roastily dry. The lager yeast is worked at low temperatures, imparting a clean roundness and balance.

Pedernales Classics India Pale Ale – The brilliantly clear, light copper color of this classic English beer denotes the specialized caramel malt used to give the ale a light toasted flavor. Classic NW American hops are used to balance the malty sweetness of the barley to provide a wonderful herbal aroma from this well balanced beer.

 

 

VICTORIA

Victoria event-goers will be treated to a little bit of everything ! Summer seasonals, a cider, and IPA and even a doughnut-inspired brew await.

Rahr & Sons Summertime Wheat – This refreshing, lightly hopped ale has unique banana and clove-like characteristics. It is unfiltered so the yeast character comes through with a light but full body that pours a hazy dark gold with a white, frothy head.

Pedernales Lobo Lito – A full bodied, true Reinheitsgebot quality Pilsner beer made using Pilsner malt barley, Weihensteffan yeast, Saaz hops and Hill County well water. Its slightly lower alcohol content and thirst quenching, slightly hoppy finish make it the perfect summer-time beer.

New Belgium Rolle Bolle – This summer seasonal ale is brewed with monk fruit and soursop and pours a brilliant blonde, with a fluffy, white head. Earthy and tropical tones construct the aroma and oats add a hint of creaminess to the dry and clean mouthfeel.

Sierra Nevada Hoptimum – An intense and complex Imperial IPA, Hoptimum features intense hop flavors and aromas of grapefruit ring, pine, herbs and tropical fruit.

Angry Orchard Ginger – Featuring a unique blend of Nigerian ginger and apple flavors, this smooth and refreshing cider offers a sweet, yet slightly tart taste and goes down easy. This cider is gluten-free and Celiac safe.

Rouge Voodoo Doughnut Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana Ale – Rouge Ales has partnered with Voodoo Doughnut to craft this collision of crazy flavors. This creation contains a dozen ingredients including chocolate, banana and peanut butter to match Voodoo’s famous “Memphis Mafia” doughnut.

 

Phew, that’s a lot of great craft beer! Which tasting event are you attending? See you there, Pint Jockeys!
