Bottle Release // The Sage: Belgian Strong Ale
MONDAY, MAY 27TH // 1:00 PM - 9:00 PM // BOTH LOCATIONS
We’re releasing our beloved Belgian Strong Ale, The Sage, in bottles for the very first time in honor of Asheville Beer Week! Bottles come complete with brand new artwork from our friend Sean Jones (@humiddaze). Big berry bouquet (cranberry, tart cherry, blueberry) with notes of figs, raisins, caramelized sugars, and Belgian candi syrup. Medium-bodied and dry finish makes this a deceptively drinkable strong ale. 500 mL bottles - $14 each, both taprooms.
BUILD-A-BEER WORKSHOP RECIPE BUILDING AND INGREDIENT SESSION WITH THE BREWERS
TUESDAY, MAY 28TH // 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM // ARCHETYPE WEST ASHEVILLE
Calling all homebrewers! This one’s for you. We’re releasing two of our fan-favorite recipes for you to brew at home! At our Build-A-Beer workshop, you’ll get the recipe, the full set of milled, ready-to-brew grains, the full set of hops, and a chance to chat with the brewers about technique, helpful hints, and tricks. Want to modify the recipe? We can help you with that with on-site hop and grain steeps and Come hang out in the brewhouse, have a pint, and get nerdy with us! $35 per participant (must be purchased ahead of time so we can mill and package the grains for you), includes a beer, the full brew kit (without yeast, we can advise on where and what to buy), and a walk-through with the brewers with one-on-one Q & A.
TUESDAY, MAY 28TH // 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM // ARCHETYPE WEST ASHEVILLE
Join our education specialist, Stacy Johnson, for an in-depth tasting of our bottled offerings! She’ll walk you through the process of barrel-aging, including the base beers we use, the flavor profiles we strive for, and the technical process we go through to age the beer. You’ll also hear our house tasting notes and how we perceive each beer as you taste them, and finally, why we call our barrel program the Third Way Barrel Program.
No RSVP necessary, simply show up ready to taste some great beers! $10 will get you a tasting of all of our bottle and a low-key session with Stacy, where you can ask all of your burning questions.
BRETT WHO?! BRETTANOMYCES SEMINAR AND TASTING
WEDNESDAY, MAY 29TH // 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM // ARCHETYPE WEST ASHEVILLE
In this class, we'll walk you through everything Brettanomyces: the history, the brewing techniques, it's flavor and aroma profiles, and why we love it so much! After you learn, you’ll have the opportunity to taste a variety of Archetype beers, without knowing what they are. Tasting "blind", you’ll learn to pick up on flavors and aromas, and we'll help you describe them with industry lingo that you’ll recognize and understand.
After tasting, our brewers, Steven Anan and Erin Jordan, will give a rundown of each beer with our house tasting notes plus a little extra instruction on how we perceive each beer. Bring all your burning questions, they’ll do their best to answer! We'll have the class set up in the brewery, so you can tour, poke around, and see up close and personal how we brew our beer here at Archetype. You’ll leave with a better understanding of how the pros taste beer and of how your own palette tastes beer (plus a few helpful guides to take home with you).
