The lucky ladies of NC have a big event coming up this Thursday, 7pm at World of Beer in Raleigh! We’re delighted to be hosting an exclusive NoDa Brewery tasting event and we’ll be raising money for Voices Together!
Located in the North Hills area World of Beer of one of nearly 30 WOB locations that focus on offering a diversity of the freshest beers in an upbeat setting. Our Raleigh-area WOB opened less than a year ago but has already become a hot spot for tastings and for musical acts. Stick around after the tasting on Thursday to hear live music from Marcus & Tommy!
NoDa Brewing is also new to NC, having opened less than a year ago in the North Davidson area of Charlotte. NoDa has quickly made a name for themselves in hoppy beer and we will be sampling several of their more “hop-forward” selections, along with a contrastingly malty chocolate beer. Yum! We’ll also have staff on hand to tell us about each of the beers we’re tasting and what’s in the flavors.The tasting will include:
10 Blocks South™ ~ Xtra Pale Ale
Tired of the standard American Pale Ale? Not feeling the hop bite and higher ABV of an IPA? We have something in-between. What you get is a hop-centric but easy drinking beer with tons of citrus and floral hop character brought on by Centennial, Cascade, Columbus and Chinook hops and backed with a solid malt bill.
ABV 5.5% SRM 15 IBU 56
Woody & Wilcox ~ IPA
An American IPA with an assertive hop character and balancing malty backbone. The hops used give it a piney, citrus laced aroma and a bright, earthy bittering finish. It uses Columbus, Magnum, Cascade and Santiam hops throughout the brew to achieve this hop character and utilizes four different malts to give it the golden amber colored body and the flavor of caramel along with some toasty bread notes.
ABV 6% SRM 9.7 IBU 60
Ghost Hop™ ~ White IPA
Ready for a warm weather, easy drinking beer but not ready to give up your Hops? Well now you don’t have to. Ghost Hop has the grain bill of an IPA, minus the color, and the hops of a true Northwestern IPA, all delicately fermented with Belgian Wit yeast. It is an American IPA-Belgian love child! It has the light body and drinkability of a Belgian Wit with the Citrus & Pine flavors from the Amarillo and Centennial hops.
ABV 5.9% SRM 3.7 IBU 70
Coco Loco™ ~ Porter
Chocolate and Brown malts contribute a stunningly deep rich color with ruby highlights in this Robust Porter. The slight bitterness from American chocolate is balanced with the sweet roastiness of toasted organic coconut. A great beer before, during, or after a meal!
ABV 6.2% SRM 32 IBU 40
Finally, NC GirlsPint Out and World of Beer really wanted to raise money for a good cause with this event and therefore will be collecting donations for Voices Together.
