Please join Melissa Modlinski of Windy City Distribution this Saturday, October 26, 2013 from 2 PM – 4 PM for a wonderful tasting of select beers!     


Deus, Brut des Flandres,  Cuvee Prestige 2010, Belgium
Price: $36.99
This is a light blonde to pale golden beer with bright and tiny bubbles.  It has a fine linen-white, meringue-like head and is fascinatingly complex.  There is a fragrance of fresh apples backed by mint, thyme, citrus, ginger, malt, hops, and cloves and a dry finish with bare hint of tannin.  11.5% abv


J.K.’s Skrumpy Hard Cider, Michigan, USA
Price: $7.99
There are only two ingredients in the Orchard Gate Gold: Apple Juice and Yeast. No artificial flavors or colors and – of course – no sulfites or preservatives of any kind. This cider is organic and made with fresh, ripe, sweet apples that add a slight edge of tartness. Takes well to mulling.    6.0% abv


Krombacher Pils, Germany
Price: $10.99/6 pack
The taste of this pilsner beer is quite decisively characterized by the water it is brewed with, low-mineral natural spring water.  It has a distinctive bitter taste and a full-flavored aroma.  A right on German Pilsner.  4.8 % abv


Tripel Karmeliet, Belgium
Price: $12.49
This is a golden Belgian beer that uses three cereals: wheat, oats and barley.  It has a complex gold to bronze color, with a creamy head. Tripel Karmeliet has the lightness and freshness of wheat, but also the creaminess of oats with a spicy, lemony dryness.  8.4% abv
