At 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 10, Highland Brewing’s Leah Wong Ashburn will visit Duckworth’s Park for a vertical tasting of 2011 and 2012 Highland Thunderstruck Coffee Porter, which was brewed with organic coffee from Dynamite Roasting Company in Black Mountain, NC. The first 24 attendees will receive a free glass.
Highland Gaelic Ale will also be on tap.
On Oct. 10, Common Market in Plaza Midwood will do something a little different. Instead of their usual tasting, they’ll be doing beer floats with various chocolate stouts, brown ales, porters, etc. This is more of a bottle party than their usual tastings, and ice cream will be on hand for you to mix to your liking.
On most Wednesday nights, the Common Market in Plaza Midwood offers free beer tastings, often showcasing several beers from one brewery or certain styles. In addition, Common Market also offers $3 drafts on Wednesdays! Don’t forget that the South End Common Market does tastings on Thursday nights.
