Upcoming Event: Rossville Union Rye Product Kick-off and Tasting!

On Thursday, June 7 from 6-7:30 PM, Lukas Wine and Spirits will be hosting a new product kick-off event for Rossville Union Straight Rye Whiskey and Rossville Union Barrel Proof Straight Rye Whiskey. Tickets will be $10 to enter, with a $10 credit back toward any of the featured items that evening. Ticket holders will receive a Rossville Union Rye cocktail, tastes of the two ryes and tastes of George Remus & Remus Reserve Bourbon. This should be a fun and informative evening, with some delicious new ryes (they’re very good, I’ve tried them). Tickets can be purchased here.

Cheers,

Here’s some more information about the distillery:

rossville.jpg

It began in 1847, in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, when a small distillery produced it’s first two barrels of handcrafted rye using a blind horse to power it’s grist mill. The rye was bold, with a satisfying spiciness. it was a taste that would make “whiskey city” the rye capital of the world.

Today, from the very same banks of the Ohio river, Rossville Union is bringing back the golden age of rye. Our craftsmen have spent nearly 200 years perfecting the unique blends that all but disappeared during prohibition. This is a rye made the way it’s supposed to be. New American craftsmanship – with the soul of 1847.

Boulevard Saison Brett
Saison Brett, based on our very popular Tank 7, is assertively dry-hopped, then bottle conditioned with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces, a wild strain that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Though this farmhouse ale was given three months of bottle age prior to release, further cellaring will continue to enhance the “Brett” character, if that’s what you’re after.

Odell Extra Special Red
Imperial red ale aged in whiskey barrels.
Extra Special Red is our Imperial Red Ale, a crimson-hued brew full of juicy hop flavors and aromas of pine and stone fruit. After 6 months of aging in rye whiskey casks, it was roused from its oak cradle to the bottle in your hands. The barrels impart notes of sweet vanilla and soft tannins, while the hops settle into the background in favor of the strong malt foundation. Slainte!

Alaskan Brewing is Now Available

Alaskan Beer is here!

Amber

The name of this beer style comes from the German word “alt” meaning “old”. This refers to the aging that alts undergo since they ferment more slowly and at colder temperatures than most ales. Slow fermentation helps condition the flavors in Alaskan Amber, contributing to its overall balance and smoothness.

White

Alaskan White Ale is based on a Belgian-style witbier, literally translated to “white beer.” White beers, or “witbieren,” are named for the suspended wheat proteins creating a cloudy appearance in this unfiltered beer.

Husky IPA

This IPA has brilliant clarity and exhibits tropical and stone fruit flavors with aromas of tangerine and papaya.

Kölsch

Summer seasonal. Based on the traditional style of Kölsch beer brewed in Cologne, Germany.

SMaSH Galaxy

Single Malt and Single Hop Double IPA, brewed with only Australian Galaxy hops and Premium Northwest Pilsner Malt. The Galaxy hops take center stage and are joined by the very intense bitterness typical of this variety of hops.

Hopothermia

This American Double India Pale Ale, or IPA, is as big and bold as the mythical lone brewer himself. Legend has it that he first came up with this beer, with the help of his woodland friends, to fight against the long frigid winter nights endured by all of the pioneers of the Last Frontier.

Frontier Pack

Variety 12pk. 3 bottles each of Amber, White, Explorer Pale Ale, and Icy Bay IPA.
