Tasting-goers to sample six popular selections

Get ready for a taste of Fall, Pint Jockeys! This Thursday, August 15th from 5-7 p.m. we’ll hold our August tasting events at the Del Papa distribution centers in Texas City, Beaumont and Victoria. All tastings are free and open to adults ages 21 and older.

This month’s line-up features five different beers and one cider from big industry names including Stella Artois, Sixpoint Brewery, Southern Star Brewing Company, Rogue Ales and Saint Arnold Brewing Company.  Need a little more incentive to attend? Complimentary Stella Cidre taster glasses will be handed out to event-goers while supplies last.

Check out the descriptions below for each item on the line-up!

Stella Artois Cidre – This crisp, distinctive European premium cider is made with hand-picked apples. An excellent alternative to white wine, it is the perfect refreshment for special occasions.

Sixpoint Sweet Action – Ah, love is bitter and sweet. This beer is signature Sixpoint – hard to define, but perhaps that’s why people love it so much. Part pale ale, part wheat and part cream ale – all Sweet Action.

Southern Star Walloon – A Belgian-style Grisette, this hazy colored brew’s aroma is filled with hints of unripe banana, citrusy notes and orange zest. It’s taste is persimmon-like with some mango characteristics and a hint of banana. Walloon has a nice grain/wheat profile that tangles with the yeast to create a soft sweetness and medium mouthfeel.

Rouge Hazlenut Brown – Rogue Ale’s Hazlenut Brown is a nutty twist on traditional European Brown ale. Dark brown in color with a hazelnut aroma, this brew has a rich, nutty flavor and smooth malty finish.

Saint Arnold Oktoberfest – A Saint Arnold classic, this full bodied, malty and slightly sweet beer is perfect for celebrating the autumn harvest. With its round malt flavor, it will have you pining away for the crisper, cooler temperatures that await in the coming months.

Saint Arnold Icon Gold – This “Biére de Saison” has a complex, spicy nose with notes of brown sugar and plums. The taste starts with big spicy malt and alcohol and then turns fruity and slightly sweet in the middle. It’s earthy, spicy finish makes the brew both highly complex and highly delicious.
