Unibroue – An Icon of the Craft Brewing World

FDM_Verre1The Unibroue adventure began in 1990 and since then, has grown to become an icon of the craft brewing world! Unibroue still follows the great brewing traditions developed over the last two centuries by Trappist monks in Europe. No two beers are alike at Unibroue, with each one having a unique-tasting and delicious flavor defined by taste, color, texture, and density.

Unibroue will be one of the featured craft breweries at Taste of Brews Inland Empire this May. You will be able to have unlimited tastes of their La Fin du Monde, a Triple Style Golden Ale, and their Trois Pistoles, an Abbey Style Strong Dark Ale, both with an ABV of 9.0%! Come enjoy with us! You can also check out Unibroue.com, where they share food recipes that pair well with their outstanding craft beers.


Hallelujah for Rev. Nat’s Hard Cider

Nat West has a passion in making creative flavor combinations that everyone will love. Revival and Hallelujah Hopricot are the originals of Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider and will both be featured at Taste of Brews on Saturday, May 21!

Revival is a hard apple cider, made with the perfect Washington-grown apples and the right amount of sweetness and acidity to be an everyday beverage. Hallelujah Hopricot is Rev. Nat’s flagship cider. It is a dry-hopped apricot cider that tastes like “beer, cider, and wine all in one.” Rev. Nat West makes four year-round ciders, along with limited releases that are created when the seasons change, when the mood changes, and when amazing new ingredients are encountered!

Pair that with grains from around the world and hops grown in the Pacific Northwest and you are guaranteed a refreshing sip every time!

Celebrating Beer Across America!

New Beer’s Eve celebrates the day before the beginning of the end of the Prohibition in the United States. On this day in 1933, people lined up outside of bars and breweries waiting for the clock to strike midnight, so they could legally purchase beer for the first time in 13 years.

National Beer Day (April 7, 1933) officially marked the day when buying, selling and drinking beer became legal again.  “I think this would be a good time for beer,” President Franklin D. Roosevelt was quoted saying as he signed the legislation.  And since then, we have celebrated New Beer’s Eve, National Beer Day, and our love of beer! CHEERS!
