Nugget Nectar Draft Release

Learn More
With bottle production in full swing, we’re now gearing up for phase two of our Nugget Nectar release. You can expect Nugget to hit draft lines in mid-February (around Valentine’s Day) throughout our eight-state distribution area and continue into early March. “We’re excited by the amount of positive customer feedback we’ve gotten about Nugget Nectar this year,” said John Trogner. With increased production in 2013, expect to find Nugget Nectar flowing in your favorite local drinking establishment. Also, we will package 22oz. bomber bottles during the first week of February, so you can anticipate the release date to coincide with the draft version.

Scratch Beer Update Learn More
Scratch #87 – Bourbon Barrel-Aged Troegenator – It’s been quite some time since our last barrel-aged release. Well, we were so excited about this bourbon barrel-aged version of our flagship year-round Double Bock, Troegenator, that instead of bottling it, we decided to make it available exclusively in our Tasting Room! Everything you love about Troegenator is present – the strong malt aroma, rich chewy body, and warm, tingly spiciness. With that said, it was time well-spent in the bourbon barrel for this already dense, delicious treat. The Nator returns after more than five months from its holiday inside Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. The result is a lush Double Bock with undertones of vanilla, oak, toasted coconut, and tangy bourbon warmth. Released on 1/30/13. Availability: Tasting room draft only. This is an extremely limited batch. Sorry, no growler fills.

Scratch #88 – Cocoa Stout – Slated for a Valentine’s Day release, we have an ambitious Cocoa Stout in the works. Stop by our Tasting Room with your special Valentine and give them a rich, chocolatey memory they’re sure to cherish for years to come! Read more about our upcoming Cocoa Stout below. Availability: TBD.

The Infüz-O-Matic 5000
From the mind of John Trogner, we are pleased to present an apparatus that will change the landscape of our Scratch Beer series forever… the Infüz-O-Matic 5000.

This prototype was constructed to extract the essence of a variety of ingredients and infuse the bold flavors directly into our beer. Click here for a photo collage of our brewing team adding special ingredients to our upcoming Cocoa Stout Scratch beer release. For this particular batch, we added 4lbs. of cocoa nibs and 2lbs. of cocoa powder per barrel, plus thirty vanilla beans and copious amounts of Cascade hops directly to beer via the Infüz-O-Matic 5000. The Cocoa Stout will be available in the Tasting Room in mid-February around Valentine’s Day. Come taste for yourself and savor the flavor!

Full Moon Firkin
With the huge crowd that converged in our Tasting Room for last month’s Full Moon Firkin event, we’ve decided to give it another go and feature Nugget Nectar vs. Perpetual IPA: The Sequel (or Part Deux, depending on your preference). On Monday, February 25, we will feature dueling firkins of two of our hoppiest and most revered beers, each dry-hopped and doused with special ingredients. Sometimes referred to as the “Storm Moon,” we’re hoping to be adequately prepared for the storm of hopheads sure to flock to this event! Tapping time TBD.

Drew's picture

Hi, I’m Drew Burns,
I started working for Table & Vine in 2011 after having worked in restaurants for over 10 years. As a result of my restaurant experience, I’ve always had an interest in all things food and beverage so Table & Vine was a natural career opportunity for me. Primarily I work in the beer department but recently began cross training in other departments as well.

Some of my favorite styles of beer are Belgian Abbey ales, IPA‘s and Czech Pilsners. Next time you’re at Table & Vine, find me in the aisles and I’d love to talk BEER with you.

Whether you say salud, prost, sliante or just bottoms up here in the beer dept at Table & Vine we spend long hours researching to find the perfect pint for you. But with over 1,700 beers to choose from and over 200 breweries’ it can all be quite daunting so in our continuing to pursuit to match you with your perfect pint here is a brewery were excited about …
