On Tuesday, October 1 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Avondale Brewing Company (Birmingham) will debut their brand new line of bottled offerings with a launch event held at Hop City Birmingham (2924 Third Ave South, Birmingham).
The news that Avondale Brewing would begin bottling their lineup of tasty brews surfaced at the start of the year, but anyone who is familiar with breweries knows that these things take time. Well, several months have passed, bottling equipment has arrived, and the time is now. Avondale's lineup of 22 oz. bottles will start with their flagship offering Spring Street Saison. If you are unfamiliar with this beer, it is in your best interest to give it a taste because it truly is one of the best Saisons available in Alabama today. Here is the full brewery description of Spring Street:
When the city of Avondale was formed in the 1850′s, the main thoroughfare become known as Spring Street, and on this street (now 41st Street) is where you will find the present day home of Avondale Brewing Company.
Spring Street Saison is a Belgian style farmhouse ale. The Saison is our flagship brew that helped spawn the formation of Avondale Brewing Co. Our Saison is brewed with our proprietary house yeast, a 4 malt blend and traditional Slovenian hops. Our unique brewing process along with the combination of the finest ingredients creates a thirst quenching brew with no equal. True to style this unfiltered ale has a coppery golden color and rich malty backbone that creates a unique farmhouse brew. Flavors burst with tropical fruit that combine with hints of spicy and peppery notes that are derived from our house yeast. One sip and you will fall in love.
Spring Street Saison weighs in at 7.2% ABV, but it drinks easily like a much lighter brew. This Saison is a beer for any occasion and season, and its peppery notes make it an easy choice for pairing with countless savory dishes. Bottles of Spring Street will begin turning up on Tuesday at Hop City and other craft beer friendly establishments throughout Birmingham.
For the launch event, Hop City Birmingham and Avondale Brewing have teamed up to hold a tasting of these brand spanking new bottles. They will be serving up free samples of the bottled Spring Street Saison, and bombers will of course be available for purchase. To truly make this a launch party, Slice Birmingham will have their food truck on site and Rick Carter of Rolling in the Hay will provide some live musical entertainment.
This should be good times all around, so make sure to swing by Hop City after work to pick up your bottle of Spring Street Saison. Not only do you get a free sample, but the bomber will go great with dinner once you get home. Make it happen, folks. Prost!
