Get ready for the Pint Jockey’s November tasting events!
The beer is in and we’re just about ready for tomorrow’s big events! As you all should know, we hold free monthly tasting events at the Del Papa Distributing offices in Beaumont, Victoria and Galveston on the third Thursday of every month from 5-7 p.m. This November, we’re highlighting our festive brews that pair perfectly with fall’s cooler temperatures and holiday fare. Last week, we told you about Saint Arnold’s Christmas Ale, Redhook Winter Ale and Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale, and this week we’ll fill you in on the other tasty selections you can sample at tomorrow’s tastings:
- Cornel’s Brewing Company Maelstrom –Beaumont brewer Cornel’s Maelstrom is a mild stout Schwartzbier, inspired by a Brazilian black lager and a crème brûlée. The lager has a dark black color and medium body with a very slight hint of vanilla flavor that starts as bitter coffee and chocolate blending into a slightly sweeter, almost slick finish.
- Sierra Nevada Torpedo– This IPA is bold, assertive and full of flavor, highlighting the complex citrus, pine and herbal character of whole-cone American hops. Sierra Nevada’s revolutionary torpedo method of dry-hopping – designed, built and debuted at the brewery – harnesses a huge hop flavor.
- Southern Star Brewing Company’s Buried Hatchet Stout – Although this is not a seasonal brew, this imperial stout is perfect for colder weather and holidays. Jet-black in color, smooth and delicious, this medium-bodied ale is all about the roasted malts but has enough hop bitterness for a balanced taste with a note of coffee, caramel and vanilla cream.
- Saint Arnold Sailing Santa – Special to the Galveston tasting event, we’ll have the brand new Saint Arnold Brewing Company’s Sailing Santa! The new seasonal, which hits shelves tomorrow, November 17, is a blend of Elissa IPA and the seasonal Christmas Ale. Sailing Santa marks Saint Arnold’s third seasonal release this year and promises to be just as tasty (and hard to find) as the first two!
