The Beer News

Here are this week’s news and events happening in the Charlotte, North Carolina area!

  • Thursday, November 7th. PBB&B Sandwich Imperial Pastry Stout Release. Triple C Brewing Company. 4 pm-10 pm. Clocking in at 12%, this collaboration was brewed with Hidden Springs Ale Works and inspired by what Elvis might eat!

    This Imperial Sweet Pastry Stout has all the flavors of peanut butter, banana, & bacon sandwich. Pours an opaque black, with a viscous mouthfeel and low silky carbonation. Sweet and complex with notes of bacon on the nose from cherrywood smoked malt, freshly ground peanuts, and a hint of ripe bananas. Rich flavors of brownie batter, sweet peanut butter pie, chocolate-dipped banana milkshake, and smoky, crispy, fried, candied bacon.  

 

  • Thursday, November 7th. IPA Series Release: Haze-Ology. Birdsong Brewing Co. 3 pm-10 pm. Join us for another brew from our Limited Release IPA Series!

    This time we’re bringing you Haze-ology, a hazy IPA, with a unique blend of 5 hops which lends to big juicy tropical fruit notes upfront with a citrus finish. Join us for the release of this limited IPA on Thursday, 11/7!

    Robust and floral with hints of tangerine and grapefruit, Haze-ology is balanced and bright. We used Eureka, Comet, Amarillo, El Dorado, and Galena hops to create a one-of-a-kind IPA that seamlessly blends the hop character of West Coast-style brew with the hazy qualities of East Coast IPAs.

    Haze-ology IPA will release on draft and in cans at 3p!
