The Crafter's Drafts
We asked our Craft & Draft Virtual Market Vendors to pair up their products with their favorite beers - and they did not disappoint!
JACK OF ALL CREATIVE
Voodoo Ranger XPerimental IPA
New Belgium Brewing Company
ABV 6.6% IBU 27
WHAT IT IS: American IPA. Our latest IPA experiment. Exclusively dry hopped with Citra Hops.
WHY WE LIKE IT: When Jack Of All Creative’s rangy guard is at the club hankering for a cold one, it’s safe to assume he’d opt for something familiar. It’s easy to see that he and these Voodoo Rangers are far from strangers.
HANK'S HIDEAWAY SHOP
Wicked Weed Brewing Pub
ABV 6.5% IBU 21
WHAT IT IS: This ale is made with Belgian noble hops and our Belgian yeast. This combination imparts a wonderfully complex, spicy, clove aroma and subtle dried apricot and biscuit-like flavor. This golden ale is a wonderful entry-level Belgian beer for anyone unsure of Belgian styles.
Find this beer at Brick House Pizza.
Birdsong Brewing Company
ABV 5.8% IBU 29
WHAT IT IS: American Porter. A smooth brew with locally roasted coffee & fresh vanilla beans to create a warm foundation of specialty malts and light body with subtle sweetness.
WHY WE LIKE IT: As the weather turns cool, there is nothing better than sitting outside, curling up in a cozy sweater, and enjoying the beautiful mountain landscape of sweet Virginia.
White Feather Witbier
Eastern Divide Brewing Company
ABV 4.5 IBU 18
WHAT IT IS: "A light, soft and flavorful Belgian Ale spiced with coriander, bitter orange peel, and chamomile." -EDBC
WHY WE LIKE IT: I'm a sucker for anything chamomile. When I sip this beer on a sunny fall day I'm tricked back into thinking that it's still summer. I dare you to try it!
JACK OF ALL CREATIVE
Foothills Brewing Company
ABV 6.25% IBU 78
WHAT IT IS: American IPA. The recipe is simple. Take some hoppy. Add some yum. North American malts lend a surprisingly sweet base to copious additions of citrusy Simcoe hops. Great aroma, superior taste, clean dry finish.
WHY WE LIKE IT: By the looks of things, Jack Of All Creative’s hoppy little frogs seem to enjoy the presence of a big, hoppy ale. But don’t get any culinary notions though; the flavor of Foothills Brewing’s fine IPA is far, far superior to that of our froggies’ frog legs!
