Craft Beer Tasting

This week we hosted a craft beer tasting with Brian Aldrich of Seacoast Beverage Lab for our staff and close friends to introduce them to craft beer and some local breweries. Brian educated the group about several local companies brewing delicious beer right here on the seacoast including, Smuttynose Brewing CompanyThe Portsmouth BreweryRedhookThrowback BreweryBlue Lobster Brewing Company, and Earth Eagle Brewings
He then led us in a tasting session to introduce the team to the nuances of different beer styles in a very approachable way. Each beer was thoughtfully presented with brewery information, taste and aroma profile, and how it compared to the other beers we were tasting. The ten beers we sampled were divided into four areas; Pale Ale, IPA, Brown Ale, and Porter/Stout. Some of our favorites were the Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin' for its strong hoppy finish, the Rising Tide Ishmael for its slightly sweet and malty characteristics, and the Breckenridge Vanilla Porter for its unique chocolate and roasted nut flavor.
Have you considered a craft beer tasting for your next event? We'd love to work with you in planning an event that fits your audience, taste and style. Keep an eye out for our upcoming new and improved craft beer menu, coming soon to Harbor's Edge and the Riverwatch Lounge at The Sheraton.
Brian is a craft beer powerhouse on the seacoast. We hope you'll visit his website and connect with him on Facebook and Twitter.
