May Tasting Schedule

Written by Sara Lilkas, Marketing Intern 

May has always been my favorite month. It always felt like the true start of spring, with typically warmer days, but since we live in the Northeast there is always the chance it may snow. May is the end of the spring semester for college students and then there’s the unofficial kick off to summer with Memorial Day Weekend. To help get you in the mood for summertime we have a great line up of craft beers to try at the Growler Station, including a debut from New Belgium brewery!

To help you kick off your Memorial Day weekend we have a Growler Station debut! We will be featuring two beers by New Belgium brewery from Colorado! With their recent expansion to Asheville, NC, they’ve expanded their beer production and distribution to the Eastern United States. For their first tasting at the Growler Station we will be featuring their flagship Fat Tire, an amber ale and one of my personal favorites, as well as their summer seasonal, The Heavy Melon. The Fat Tire is a medium bodied Amber Ale. Featuring a balance of flavors between the bitter hops and malty sweetness. New Belgium’s summer seasonal Heavy Melon is a watermelon lime ale featuring crisp fruity flavors and just a hint of bitterness.
