High & Mighty Tasting at Vee Vee

We just finalized another event we are super excited for. On February 7 we will be hosting a tasting with High and Mighty at Vee Vee in Jamaica Plain. Four different High and Mighty beers will be featured along with the amazing food at Vee Vee. I’m in love with both High and Mighty and Vee Vee.

Let me explain. First off, Vee Vee is in my neighborhood. Amazing place, amazing food, amazing people. Rebecca basically dragged me there the minute she learned I hadn’t eaten there yet back in February of last year. You can find that whole recap on my blog. Needless to say, I was completely hooked after that first visit. I am not kidding when I say that sirloin I had would probably be my request for a last meal.

Now for High and Mighty. I first got to try their beer at the Brew Off back in September. I ended up coming a little late because of work, but Rebecca handed me her High and Mighty mug which I happily filled with beer and then for the rest of the night I kept getting asked if I was someone really important because I had such an awesome mug. Reason enough to love them.

Now we’re combing those two amazing things into one night. The four beers being featured from High and Mighty are (all descriptions are from the High and Mighty website here and here):

Beer of the Gods – Light and refreshing, our cheeky flagship German-style beer is low in alcohol and easy to drink, but has enough hop bitterness to please even Zeus himself. Sure, we know those well-endowed beers will get all the press, but, just once, how about some props for the little guy? 4.5% ABV

Purity of Essence – You need a beer you can trust, and that’s why we make Purity of Essence. It’s an overstuffed blend of the best malts, fresh Noble hops, yeast, and water, brewed according to the German Reinheitsgebot – the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516 – but you won’t find anything like this in the Old Country. Vienna and Munich malts add just a bit of color and malty firmness to balance the intense hoppy flavors and aromas that make this brew distinctly American. 5.4% ABV

Fumata Nera – Not that long ago, all beer was smoked, but as malting technology improved smoked beer fell out of favor almost everywhere. But in and around Bamberg, Germany (in Franconia the northern part of Bavaria), traditional smoked beer lives on, and, damn, it’s tasty. We’ve modeled our smoked black rye lager after our favorite examples of the style, which have a delicate smoke flavor, but we’ve made it our own by adding generous amounts of heavily-roasted malts, and loads of noble hops. 4.5% ABV

The last beer is Divine Brown which isn’t up on their website yet, but Andrew from High and Mighty described it to us: “Divine Brown is a balanced brown ale brewed with Dark Roast coffee compliments of local Coffee Purveyors at Amherst Coffee & Esselon Cafe (2 really cool coffee places that serve our beer in the Amherst Area).”

I know. You’re excited for this event. We are too. More information will be out as we get a little closer in the next few weeks, but mark your calendars for February 7 at Vee Vee!
