Who’s ready for Labor Day weekend?! I’m already planning four days of fun that I will cram into one day and wonder why I’m tired afterward! Since Labor Day came about to honor the American worker, we thought we would highlight beers in the tasting this week that celebrate professions. Here’s what we’re pouring as described by the men and women that labored to bring them to us:
Asheville Brewing Company, Asheville, NC
Rocket Girl Lager
When worlds collided…we took the best things about ales and mashed them with the best parts of lagers…and it was a blast off! A bold malt and our special kolsch yeast creates a golden lager that puts your taste buds into hyperspace. She’s mysterious, she’s complex, and she’s got one heavenly body.
Gizmo BrewWorks, Raliegh, NC
Beekeeper Honey Wheat
Beekeeper Honey Wheat exhibits the characteristics of honey sweetness, floral nose, fruity flavors, a hint of clove, with a light body. Brewed with wildflower honey, Gizmo’s honey wheat beer is a nod to the beekeeping profession. Due to popular demand, this once summer favorite is now available year round.
Catawba Brewing Company, Morgonton, NC
Mother Trucker Pale Ale
Our hoppy pale ale, is as American as Interstate-40 and proud of it! We use three different American hop varieties to create a dry, quaffable brew with pine, earth, and a truck load of citrus aromas. Mother Trucker’s sturdy malt backbone provides the perfect roadway for the hops’ journey to your taste buds. Best of all, this beer is sessionable – You can arm wrestle your buddies to see who buys the next round. Cheers!
Rocket Science IPA
Rocket Science is a true-to-style American IPA inspired by the quest for harmony. We longed for an IPA that exuded confidence in its restraint, that paired well with any meal, and that wouldn’t destroy your palate. We found equilibrium in the optimal balance of sweet malts and bitter hops, an IPA both refreshing and refined.
