Join us as we celebrate “Shocktober” with a special lineup
We’re fired up for all things Fall! This October, we’re celebrating “ShockTober” with an all Shock Top lineup at our tasting events this Thursday, October 16th from 5-7 pm.
Each tasting location can expect to taste five different Shock Top selections, plus one special additional pick! The Shock Top beers on the roster are as follows:
Shock Top Belgian White – Shock Top shakes up traditional tastes with this spiced Belgian-style wheat ale, made with real orange, lemon, lime peels and a little coriander for an extra kick.
Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat – Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat is a unique, hand crafted brewed hybrid of Belgian wheat beer and sweet cider, with natural Honeycrisp flavor added to produce an innovative new brew that is crisp, refreshing and flavorful. This unfiltered brew is perfect on a sunny day.
Shock Top Honey Bourbon Cask Wheat – Shock Top’s newest edition is a Belgian-Style unfiltered wheat ale brewed with honey, caramel malt, and aged on bourbon cask staves for the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment all year round.
Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat – This traditional Belgian-style wheat ale fully captures all the flavors of fall. The ale is brewed with ripe pumpkins and a variety of autumnal spices including nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves to create a refreshingly smooth mouthfeel.
Shock Top Raspberry – This traditional Belgian-style wheat ale is brewed with essence of wild raspberry and hand-selected hops. It’s this combination that gives it its crisp and distinctive Shock Top taste, with its own flavorful twist. The unfiltered ale has a light-golden color and a smooth finish.
Victoria – you’ll also have the chance to sample one of the best pumpkin beers around by Samuel Adams:
Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin – Real pumpkin and warming spices like ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg give this brew a smooth, hearty, and inviting character perfect for the crisper days of fall.
Texas City, your additional selection is surely going to get you in a Fall frame of mind:
New Belgium La Folie – La Folie, French for ‘the folly’, is a beer steeped in New Belgium brewing tradition. This wood-aged, sour brown spends one to three years in big, oak barrels, known as foeders. And when the beer finally hits the glass, La Folie is sharp and sour, full of green apple, cherry, and plum-skin notes. Pouring a deep mahogany, the mouthfeel will get you puckering while the smooth finish will get you smiling.
And last but certainly not least, Beaumont will get the chance to experience the coveted Pumpkinator by Saint Arnold Brewing Co.:
Saint Arnold Pumpkinator – Perfect for October, this imperial pumpkin stout is Saint Arnold’s answer to how a pumpkin beer ought to taste. This year’s version comes in at 10% ABV, and is crafted to make you feel like you just walked into your mom’s kitchen while she was cooking 37 pumpkin pies.
