Summer is in full swing and our June tasting events are celebrating the season!

Victoria and Beaumont – you’ll get to taste some special and limited releases that you DON’T want to miss.

All tastings are free and open to adults 21. Events take place this Thursday, June 19th from 5-7PM at the Del Papa Distribution Centers in Beaumont, Victoria and Texas City (addresses at the bottom of this post).

Let’s cut to the chase shall we? Your full tasting lineups are below:

TEXAS CITY

Pedernales logo

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.

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.

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.

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.

Classic 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 AND BEAUMONT

 

Firestone Walker logo

Firestone Walker Easy Jack – Newly available on the Texas Gulf Coast, Easy Jack is a Session IPA, dry hopped with a globetrotting selection of new hop varieties from Europe, New Zealand and North America. The beer delivers massive hop aromas and Firestone Walker’s signature malt balance.

Saint Arnold 20th Anniversary Ale – The Barleywine is a celebration in itself. It pours a deep burgundy-brown color with a tan, creamy head. The spicy nose is filled with malt and alcohol with citrus hop notes while toffee and caramel flavors mingle. The balance is just right, with the malt and hops “tingling” together in unison from start to finish. There’s a slight, lingering dry bitter that stays with you but still complements the sweetness from the all malt grain bill.

Saint Arnold Endeavour (in new 12 oz. bottle) – Endeavour brew pours a deep amber with a light, creamy head that is only the start to an extremely satisfying double IPA experience. The nose starts off with a touch of citrus, but then takes a turn into a flavor full of nectar and peaches. The hop bitter is quiet at the start, building to a much more impactful crescendo while maintaining a delicate balance even in its big finish.

Rahr & Sons logo

Rahr & Sons Texas Red – Texas Red is an amber lager with an extremely well-balanced flavor. The notes of caramel and its sound malt character are perfectly complemented with just a hint of hops. This beer is super-smooth and drinkable, making it the perfect refresher for the hot Texas summer days ahead.

Woodchuck

Woodchuck Cider Summer Limited Release – The sounds of the lapping lake-shores, the mountain views, and memories of fresh picked blueberries, now in a convenient six-pack. Exhibiting a slight tartness, this cider begins with a full, robust flavor followed by a rich summertime taste.

Rolling Rock

Rolling Rock (in 16 oz. can) – Brewed with a time-honored recipe and only the finest malted barley and hops, Rolling Rock is a classic American lager that’s well-known for its distinctive, full-bodied taste.

Victoria

Victoria, you’ll be paid a special visit from Texas Big Beer Brewery founders John and Tammy McKissack. They’ll be on-hand to share some of their brewery’s best beers and talk all things craft beer with ya.

Texas Big Beer

Here’s your roster:

Big Texas Blonde – This Belgian Strong Pale Ale with a 10.54% ABV content pours an orangey-tan colored hue with a cloudy body. The aroma of this beer is full of bread, fruit and candy notes while the taste is equally complex and interesting with present flavors including dough, fruit, honey caramel and more.  

Working Stiff Ale – Brewed in the style of an Extra Special Bitter and named for the “premium ales” of the working class in the London pubs in the 1800’s, this beer pours a copper color with a frothy white head. Aromas from this medium-bodied brew include caramel malts and floral hops and the taste is founded on a solid backbone of malt and earthy hops. The finish is smooth with moderate bitterness.

Renaissance Cowboy – A “wee heavy” Scotch Ale, this brew pours a deep amber-brown with a light brown frothy head. The aroma is full of heavy malts with brown sugar, molasses and dark fruity notes. Flavors include much of the same, including sugary and fruity notes. The body is medium and thick with a sweet, malty base and sweet, smooth finish.

Texas Crude – This robust American Porter’s aroma is heavy on the vanilla with other hints of sweet chocolate and toffee. The taste is smooth with sweet malt and toffee flavors and a medium body with light carbonation. Bitter hop tastes follow through to a dry yet satisfying finish.

Beeriac IPA – An American IPA with a thick, hazy amber and copper-colored body that leaves a thick, frothy head with substantial lacing when poured. Beeriac’s aroma is full of orangey, citrus notes mixed with light pine notes, caramel sweetness and tons of hops. The flavor profile includes citrus tastes followed by sweet caramel flavors with a medium mouthfeel and carbonation.

Location: Del Papa Distribution Center, Hospitality Room, 3907 E. Rio Grande, Victoria, TX 77807

Texas City

Texas City, your tasting is all about variety this month, and what a mix do we have in store for you! Check it out:

Saint Arnold Icon Blue – This Brown Porter is a dark, medium bodied ale with rich chocolate malt notes. Icon Blue pours a dark brown color with ruby and garnet highlights, producing an off-white head. During the brewing process, the brewers used English malt hops and their own Saint Arnold yeast, also hailing from the U.K.

Karbach Summer Love Street – In the 1960s on Allen’s Landing in Houston sat Love Street, a hot spot of music and social impact. Love Street was not only a place, but a state of mind; a place to unwind and let the music refresh your soul. So too is this Kolsch-style beer, hopped delicately with floral German hops with a clean malt profile that refreshes to the core without sacrificing character.

Goose Island 312 – Inspired by the city of Chicago and densely populated with flavor, 312’s spicy aroma of Cascade hops is followed by a crisp, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body that’s immensely refreshing.

Goose Island The Illinois – Illinois is a 9.0% ABV 95 IBU Imperial IPA that pushes the limits of hop flavor and aroma. It pours a deep gold color with a complex citrus aroma. The taste is balanced with a clean bitterness and a medium to full body.

Shock Top Honey Bourbon Cask Wheat – The latest addition to the Shock Top portfolio, this Belgian-style unfiltered wheat ale is brewed with honey, caramel malt and aged on bourbon cask staves for the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment all year round.

Rolling Rock – This premium extra pale lager is crafted using a time-honored recipe with only the finest malted barley and blend of hops. A classic American lager, as well-known for its distinctive, full-bodied taste as it is for its craftsmanship, heritage and painted green bottle, Rolling Rock is full-flavored with a subtle bite and a light to medium body and color.
