Beer Tasting 4 - 7pm Friday, March 21

Your host will be Jay LeBlanc of Hartford Better Beer Company.

Arch Amber    $8.99/6pb
Bright brass color with a cream tint to its long-lingering lacy head. Clean
fresh aroma, biscuit, citrus, cherry & toffee. Complex flavor starts with a mild caramel malt tone, followed by cutting crisp & complex hop flavors. German Lager meets British Ale. Thirstquenching with a beery balanced almond-cedar influence, a smooth & perfect body. Exquisite aftertaste features sublime fruit, as the intense hop bite fades quickly into a pleasant dry mineral hard water finish that invites another. Made with 5
malts, 5 hops, hard water. ABV 4.9%

Arch IPA    $8.99/6pb
Clear cherry-mahogany red appearance, dense and lacy head lasts all the way down. Bold citrus aroma, (hint of tangerine), almond and pine. Mild but detectable malt- nose, and cream up front in the flavor. With first big sip, the thirst-quenching hop flavors race from the front of the palate to the molars, and back. A hint of complex malt flows through in a second wave, without sweetness. The best of the big West Coast hop-monster craft brews meets the more delicate, traditional British Isles IPAs. Smooth drinkable body, on the lighter side. The aftertaste has a crisp and fleeting reiteration of the hop aroma, refreshingly fancy, draft-like, and balanced.
IBUs: 60
Alc by vol.: 6.0%

Sunshine    $8.99/6pb
Honey-blonde with grist >40% malted wheat. Unlike cloudy light ‘wheat beers’, ARCH
SUNSHINE KRISTALL WEIZEN is brewed strong & filtered, retaining a slight chill haze. ALLSEASON & ALL WEATHER beer made with 2- row barley, hopped like a Pilsner, with Czech, German hops, and made with pure soft New England water. Features naturally-occurring flavors of nutmeg, vanilla, clove, green raisin, & pear, all
topped by a spicy hop nose. Our lightest color beer- our strongest by alcohol content. ABV 6.2%
