Ah-hem: now introducing the 2004 & 2006 United States Beer Tasting Championships brown ale Grand National Champion. Look for notes of brown sugar, sweet bread, a hint of roastiness, fresh grains, and a faint flourish of citrusy hops. As it warms, whiffs of alcohol emerge. On the palate, expect a very long-lasting, layered cascade of flavors. First, notice the luscious fullness in the mouth, followed by a sweet maple syrup malt bomb that then dissolves as it is picked away by citrus accented hop bitterness. Then, more hop bitterness, followed by, yes, more hop bitterness as it builds to a bitter crescendo. Notes of dark chocolate and hints of light roast coffee and aspirin dust carry forward into the finish as orange citrus hoppiness takes center stage. Give yourself a good minute or two after having your first sip to allow your palate to fully experience the very lengthy finish. Overall, this is an easy-drinking, yet rather complex brown ale that would pair well with honey glazed ham, baked beans sweetened with molasses, or Granny Smith apples dipped in caramel.
The Woodstock Inn Station & Brewery is nestled in the heart of the majestic White Mountains of New Hampshire and is one of the state's most visited country inns. Not only do they provide great accommodations, they also brew their own beer. For nearly 100 years, the Woodstock Inn was the private home of the Clement family (after whom the Inn's main dining room is named). In the early 1980's the Rice family purchased and renovated the unique, New England-style dwelling. The Inn now sprawls across multiple buildings, each with its own very distinct character and charm, with a total of 33 guest rooms. In 1995, their Brewery and Brew Pub opened its doors. They offer twelve handcrafted brews, each made with pristine NH deep-well water, choice hops, and the highest quality imported grains available, all brewed using their traditional, seven-barrel brewing system. For more information about the Woodstock Inn & Brewery, check out their website at www.WoodstockInnNH.com, and be sure to explore the details regarding their popular Brewski and Brewer's weekend packages. New Hampshire is a GREAT place to visit, in any season! You can also ring them for 'Inn-formation' and reservations at: 800-321-3985.
