Shed Horn Winemaker Tasting!!!!

 

shedhorn

Tuesday, April 17th we have a very fun and unique opportunity at our bar. Mike and Adawn Wood, owner and winemaker of Shed Horn Cellars, will be in the bar pouring flights of their wine. Located 90 miles north of San Francisco in Middletown, Lake County, Shed Horn Cellars produces wines from the mountainous, wild, volcanic soils of the area’s most esteemed high elevation vineyards.

It’s not often that you can taste through a wineries lineup with the owner and winemaker to explain everything in your glass. We will taste the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Non-Typical Red, and Zinfandel, with the owner and winemaker presenting each wine. This is not a sit down class or seminar, just a simple flight of wine in the bar with a very special tour guide.  This will be a very casual event and flights are only $10 each.  To reserve your spot, tickets can be purchased at the link below or you can pay at the bar.

New Beer: Dogfish Head, Lagunitas, Abita

Now in stock…

Dogfish Head Dragons & Yum Yums
An explosion of fruit in every sip, Dragons & YumYums is an intensely tropical – yet subtlety bitter – pale ale brewed with a combination of dragonfruit, yumberry, passionfruit, pear juice and black carrot juice. Clocking in at 6.5% ABV and 25 IBU, Dragons & YumYums is a first-of-its-kind beer and vinyl collaboration with American rock icons, The Flaming Lips.

Lagunitas The Waldos’ Special Ale
In 1971, the Waldos met one afternoon at 4:20 in the front courtyard of their school near the statue of Louis Pasteur. They set out in a ’66 Impala armed with a “treasure map” on a journey to find a secret garden near Point Reyes. They met there at the same time every day and continued their quest. They never found the secret garden….But they keep lookin’. The dankest and hoppiest beer ever brewed at Lagunitas was made with help of the Waldos for all treasure hunters. Cheers!

Lagunitas Citrusinensis Pale Ale
We took some fresh Sanguinello Blood oranges, juiced ’em, concentrated that juice (without heat) and threw it into a wheatier version of our New Dogtown Pale Ale. The end result? A refreshingly hopped pale-ish ale with a huge citrus burst!

Abita Strawberry Harvest
Abita Strawberry Harvest is a lager brewed with pilsner and wheat malts and Vanguard hops. Real Louisiana strawberry juice is added after filtration resulting in a crisp lager with a sweet strawberry flavor, aroma and haze. It is wonderful with desserts or lighter fare such as salads and pastas. Fresh cheeses such as Burrata, chèvre, Crescenza, mozzarella or Teleme pair well with Strawberry Harvest.
