Event Details

Whole Foods Market and The Beer Wench have partnered with four craft breweries across the country, all with delicious holiday or winter beers available at various Whole Foods Markets, for a formal, timed tasting flight. Both Whole Foods Market and The Beer Wench will simultaneously taste each beer, switching to a new beer every fifteen minutes. The four featured breweries will also be actively tweeting during the live tasting, answering questions and sharing stories about the beers and the breweries.

About the Beers:

New Belgium Snow Day

This beer is the deep garnet of a roasted walnut and presents a creamy tan head, floating artfully atop. Snow Day is bold and hoppy, drinkable and strong. It reminds you to enjoy the unexpected. ABV: 6.2%

Deschutes Jubelale (A Festive Winter Ale)

A dark, malty celebration ale with layered flavors and beautifully balanced hopping. Jubelale pours deep garnet in color, medium bodied, with notes of chicory, earth, spice and fruit. To beer lovers, it’s like Yule fire and family. ABV: 6.7% 

Bison Gingerbread Ale (Holiday Spiced Porter)

A medium-bodied spiced holiday porter boasting aromas of ginger, clove, nutmeg, a touch of cinnamon, flavors of spice and roasted malt and a dry finish. Some call it Christmas in a bottle. ABV: 5%

Dogfish Head Chicory Stout

A dark beer made with a touch of roasted chicory, organic Mexican coffee, St. John's Wort, and licorice root. Brewed with whole-leaf Cascade and Fuggles hops, the grains include pale, roasted & oatmeal. It is roasty and delicious. It is also a fantastic food beer and pairs very well with chocolate! ABV: 5.2%
