Green Flash Flight Night and Meet & Greet, August 22

greenflashJoin us on Friday, August 22nd when we welcome Green Flash Brewing Co. to the pub for a special Flight Night and Meet & Greet event!

If Green Flash Brewing Co. is known for one thing in the craft beer community, it is providing beer lovers with an unparalleled West Coast hop experience.   The folks at the brewery have a deep love for the West Coast-style IPA and they have worked diligently to perfect these hop bombs since they first opened their doors in 2002.  That work continues today as they have recently reformulated their beloved West Coast IPA by amping it up to Double IPA status.  We are incredibly excited to host this event to reintroduce you to the new and improved version of this classic brew.

For this event, we will be featuring West Coast IPA in a flight with three other Green Flash offerings for just $8.  Your eyes do not deceive you and that is not a typo.  Here it is again: you will be able to get the following four beers in a flight for just $8:

  • Citra Session IPA – Our Citra Session™ IPA is brewed with high-quality Marris Otter and Vienna malt but the flavor is dominated by the Citra hops introduced throughout the boil and again in the dry hop for maximum aroma intensity. Notes of lemon, orange and grapefruit make this hop-laden brew a perfectly potable summer session IPA.  4.5% ABV  48 IBUs
  • Grand Cru – Our Belgian Style Dark Ale is inspired by traditional Abbey Ales to deliver the richest of malt flavors but with a slightly elevated hopping and increased complexity given from two different yeast strains. This malt laden ale is designed to satiate and keep your taste buds dancing.  9.1% ABV  20 IBUs
  • West Coast IPA – As craft beer pioneers, we embarked on an expedition to brew the benchmark West Coast IPA. We ventured into the unknown and struck gold, discovering a tantalizing menagerie of hops. Simcoe for tropical and grapefruit zest, Columbus for hop pungency, Centennial for pine notes, Citra for citrus zest and Cascade for floral aroma are layered throughout the brewing process. West Coast IPA® exemplifies the Green Flash spirit of adventure and discovery.  8.1% ABV  95 IBUs
  • White IPA – While developing the recipe for our White IPA, we lined up malted wheat and more than a dozen hop varieties to select the three hops with the most citrus character: Simcoe, Amarillo and El Dorado. A citrus hop explosion leaps from the glass with big tangerine aromas up front, while hop flavors of bitter orange zest dominate and linger to the finish.  7.8% ABV  95 IBUs

The list above alone is enough to build an event around, but we are not stopping there.  We are taking this thing to the next level by also tapping a special keg of Candela Rye Barleywine, a limited collaboration brew from Green Flash Brewing Co. and Cigar City Brewing that has been cellared since 2012.  Candela is a more malt focused representation of the style that has an added layer of complexity thanks to being aged on Spanish cedar.  Two years of aging have done this 10.9% ABV Barleywine well, and this just might be one of your last opportunities to try this stellar beer.  The Southeastern sales rep from Green Flash will be here for a Meet & Greet to chat with you about this wonderful brew and all of the others featured at this event.

Whether you are a hophead or a fan of more malt driven beers, we will have a little of something for everyone at this event.  These Green Flash offerings are not to be missed, so make sure you are at the pub on August 22nd!  We will see you all then!
