“Strangeways British Bitter” — Brewery Nonic

Strangeways British Bitter is indicative of Brewery Nonic's style and philosophy of brewing. Golden-orange in color, this sessionable and balanced beer has a slight hop bitterness from low-alpha, new world hops and a bright and biscuity malt character.

Served at cellar temperature and on authentic British hand pumped cask pulls to create a creamy mouthfeel and head. Serving by this method is much more labor intensive and time consuming but brings subtle nuances of the beer to the front that are normally masked by serving on standard tap faucets.

“River Bend Breeze” — River Bend Vinyard & Winery

The River Bend Breeze is great year-round and is especially refreshing during warm weather. Made with locally produced spirits, the River Bend Breeze is a balanced blend of Craftsman Vodka, pineapple and cranberry juice...not too boozy, not too sweet. If you want a sip of the tropics, come try this cocktail at River Bend Winery & Distillery.
