Sixpoint Tasting to Benefit the Chittenden County Humane Society | FRI 03/24 3-6p

WOOF!  Pop into the Beverage Warehouse from 3-6p and sample delicious Sixpoint craft beer for a good paws cause – the Chittenden County Humane Society!

Sixpoint | Hi-Res | Imperial IPA

To see the hop cone up close, we zoomed in microscopic, and found a hi-res view. In Hi-Resolution, the hop optic was magnified; our perception, fully amplified. It’s microscopic. It’s telescopic. It’s off-topic. It’s Mad Science.
ABV 10.5% | IBU 115 | SRM 11

Sixpoint | C.R.E.A.M. | Coffee Blonde Ale

It doesn’t take a pH.D: Drop the Acid, Drop the Base, Drop the Mic….
You started with cream in your coffee, now have coffee in your cream ale. Pour up a bright blonde coffee ale and end your day the way you started it. With a delicious craft brew. It’s Mad Science.
ABV 7.2% | IBU 25 | SRM 10

Sixpoint | Resin | Double IPA

Resin is an ode to the sticky quintessence of hops – we extracted the alluring nectar from every precious citrus, pine, dank and herbal cone and channeled it all into one vessel. Now that’s Mad Science.
ABV 9.1% | IBU 103 | SRM 9.5

Sixpoint | Bengali | American IPA

…While we could suggest what food this beer pairs well with,
or which glass to serve it in, the most important thing to remember is: even though we may take beer very seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. It’s Mad Science.
ABV 6.5% | IBU 69 | SRM 11

Sixpoint | The Crisp | Pilsner

…When the Mad Scientists emerged from underground, the quest for a new formulation went from obsession to reality.
What do you get when you fuse old world craftsmanship with new, clean, & bold flavors from right raw materials? The Crisp. It’s Mad Science.
ABV 5.4% | IBU 44 | SRM 5.9

Sixpoint | Sweet Action | Cream Ale

…Through all of the madness emerged an undefinable beer called Sweet Action;
a beer that your brain cannot categorize but instead speaks directly to your palate.
Our senses and intuition sometimes
trump rational thought. It’s Mad Science.
ABV 5.2% | IBU 34 | SRM 13

Weihenstephan & Dupont Tasting | FRI 2/17 4-6:30p

Weihenstephan & Dupont Beer | Beverage Warehoue

FREE European Beer Tasting Friday, February 17th, 4-6:30p

In the tumultuous world of craft beer where breweries popup and established breweries going under is the norm, there is a short list of breweries that have the staying power of decades, much less centuries.

Dupont started 60 years ago in the 1950’s which is impressive but seems young in comparison to the the worlds oldest brewery, Weihenstephan, which can trace it’s roots back to at least 768.

Have your palate find out why Dupont and Weihenstephan outlived 1,000’s of breweries over the years during this wonderful tasting.

 

From totalbeveragesolution.com:

Weihenstephan | Kristall Weissbier

The source of its pearling, effervescent taste is the secret fermentation process which we have developed especially for our crystal wheat beer. It quenches your thirst like no other beer. With its elegant appearance, it is the specialty of our brewery. Goes well with fish, seafood and light dishes.

Weihenstephan | Hefe-Weissbier Dunkel

Supple, malty and mellow. Its harmonious flavor is the great strength of our dark wheat beer. Not only as a good combination with hearty dishes.

Weihenstephan | Original Lager

A good beer takes time. The long lager time makes our pale beer a matter of mild, flavorful beer enjoyment. Brewed in accordance with a centuries-old beer tradition on Weihenstephan Hill.

Weihenstephan | Vitus

A light-coloured, spicy single-bock wheat beer, for both beer lovers and the beer connoisseur. Extra long and cold storage in our monastery cellars makes this single-bock a really special beer with full body and a distinctively great mouthfeel. Prost!

Dupont | Avec les Bons Voeux

Strong Saison 9.5% ABV

Avec les Bons Vœux translates in English to, “With best wishes of the Brewery Dupont.”
First brewed in 1970 as a Christmas offering for Dupont’s most loyal customers, it has become one of the shining gems of the Brewery’s collection. Brewed with a selection of Dupont’s signature yeasts and given a longer maturation phase, the resulting beer has a full and malty richness with flavors of banana, clove and lemon peel.

Dupont | Saison Dupont Vieille Provision

Farmhouse Ale, 6.5% ABV

Saison Dupont Vieille Provision is considered the flagship of the Saison style and is the most admired and imitated beer in the world. Full-bodied and malty, Saison Dupont Vieille Provision is beloved for its distinct peppery bite and unique flavor derived from Dupont’s signature strain of yeast.

JuliusTreis-02~ The Vineyards ~

Our vineyards are about 90% in steep and Steilstlagen. We manage our vineyards in harmony with nature and are you still defenseless. Year after year, we are bursting to unpredictable weather to harvest ripe and healthy grapes. By selektionierte Hand picking in several reading passages we harvest the grapes in ideal ripeness.

The Mullay-Hofberg is our leading position in the every year our best wines grow. Innumerable small terraces and dry-stone walls; a steep slope with about 150m height difference; ungrafted, over 50 years old vines; the orientation to South south-east; the blue slate floor.

All together it makes the editing process Knochenjob which would be impossible without idealism and striving for highest qualities.

Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Blanc, Dornfelder and Pinot Noir are cultivated on slopes and complement our Riesling selection.

 

JuliusTreis-03~ The History ~

The winery Julius Treis is in Reil on the Moselle and looks back on a long tradition of wine. Since 1684 our family is connected to the viticulture. Each generation loved and
lived viticulture. Today Tobias Treis continues the tradition.

This 5-hectare vineyard has mainly devoted to Riesling. This is grown in the steep and Steilstlagen. The management here is carried out exclusively by hand. A small part of the vineyards in the slopes is additionally fitted with Pinot Blanc, Müller-Thurgau, Dornfelder and Pinot Noir.

 

JuliusTreis-04~ Tobias & Andrea ~

Tobias –

Since 2008 Tobias Treis gives the wine its own handwriting. The Studied Dipl. Ing. For oenology continues the high quality struts and the family tradition and supplemented it with new knowledge, passion, idealism and innovative ideas.

Andrea –

Andrea works as a biological-technical assistant in a winery in the wine laboratory. As former Mosel wine queen (2011-2012) Andrea represented the Mosel Riesling in the world. In her spare time she is Tobias, since 2011, laid aside organizes events and remains an enthusiastic ambassador for the Mosel wine.

 

JuliusTreis-05~ Tradition ~

The generations collected knowledge of terroir, peculiarities of vineyards and legendary stories are our little treasures. They are preserved and passed down from generation to generation. This wealth of experience and intuition can be found in our wines again.
So you can taste the origins and fine vintage differences.

Maintaining tradition does not keep ashes but keep embers glowing on.

JuliusTreis-06~ Generations ~

Irma and Theo Treis led together over 40 years the fortunes of the estate. Theo Treis is Tobias Treis advice. He leads the treasury of the estate, in the mature many liquid treasures from more than 6 decades. Irma Treis supervised and cared passionately our holiday guests, Rebstock sponsors and guests in Schöppchengarten.
