We brewed a beer with Escutcheon! Details below. Also, Tastings Galore & Easter!
A German Rose
This one may throw you for a loop, BUT you do know it! Spatburgunder is what they call Pinot Noir in Germanys. And this one is surprising, delicious & Rose! "Reichsrat Von Buh"l 2016 has cherry fruit on the nose, contrasted by a dry palate. It has quite a bit of spicy complexity & just plain refreshing. The color catches your eye. The red fruity aromas are typical and bring to mind raspberry and strawberry. Soft & elegant. Founded in 1849, Reichsrat von Buhl has been family owned for over 150 years Since it's last years vintage, it's on sale.

Regularly $22.59, Its now $14.99 while it lasts!
An American Pinot Noir Rose.
Buy one of each and compare!

Winemaker Notes
2016 Acrobat Rose of Pinot Noir has an exuberant pink color with salmon hues. The nose exudes a freshness of lime zest, pomegranate, and just ripe strawberries, structured with a pleasant violet aroma. Red cherries are immediately apparent on the palate with orange blossom, key lime, and potpourri. This wine has focused acidity that balances the juicy fruit flavors.

Wine Enthusiast 89 points
Dry and succulent, this brings tangy flavors of rhubarb and raspberry into focus. It's made for picnic foods—could anything be better with fried chicken? This is widely available and scores a bullseye if your target is a summer sipper. It's last years vintage so it's on sale, too!

So last Wednesday was quite the day! Aspart of our year long 20th anniversary, ee were fortunate enough to spend the day "brewing" at Escutcheon! (142 West Commercial St.) The whole process took about 7 hours and if I learned anything, it's that brewing is about cleaning. And to be honest, all I did was take photos and watch and eat pizza :) All that aside, It was WONDERFUL. I got to spend the day with friends, one being a Master Brewer! We have a GREAT REVEAL coming up, at the brewery in 3 to 4 weeks and it's my hope that you'll join us. More details (date, time, name, style) will follow! I hope you'll join us for our first ever collaboration!
