You can always see what’s coming up at Enoteca by seeing the calendar on our left sidebar on our newly revamped Events page.

sierra-nevada-sleight-of-handSleight of Hand Black Belgian IPA

As it’s apt to do, a Belgian yeast lends this beer complex aromas and flavors, which give the high ABV just the smoke and mirrors it needs to surprise you. But you know its trick, so slowly savor Sleight of Hand’s banana bread, clove and spice.

#94 Belgian-style Black IPA—This beguiling black IPA takes a tropical detour with a dose of new world hops, featuring lemony Sorachi Ace and fruity Nelson Sauvin varieties. A Belgian yeast works with the exotic hop profile, emphasizing its complex and fruity flavors.

8% ABV, 52 IBUs

More on Belgian Beers:

The beers of Belgium have gained fame as being some of the most unique brewed anywhere in the world. A stark counterpoint to the beers of Germany which conform to the Reinheitsgebot—a purity law stating that beer can only be made from four ingredients: malt, hops, water, and yeast—Belgian beers follow no such rules. Belgian beers often use spices and sugar adjuncts, as well as fruit or herbs and unique “wild” yeasts or other microorganisms to produce exciting and varying flavors. American craft brewers often find inspiration in these no-holds-barred brews and carry on their spirit of innovation.

An appropriately named Imperial Red Ale, Bloodshot has an incredible balance of huge hop bitterness—100 IBUs!—and sweet caramel malt. Tropical fruit and licorice swirl freely in the aroma, and a smooth body cloaks this beer’s power.

#95 is another delicious addition to Sierra Nevada’s long line of Beer Camp releases this is a one-and-done keg so get it while it’s hot!

9.5% ABV, 100 IBUs

Brewers Dozen

Guess which bar is the exclusive north Idaho destination for the Brewers Dozen promotion by Sierra Nevada? You guessed it, Enoteca Drinkery & Refuge. Sierra Nevada recognizes that we’ve been drinking a lot of their beer, because it’s good, and now there is a very cool promotion coming our way.

Brewers Dozen Limited Draught Calendar

Sierra Nevada is releasing a different unique and amazing craft beer each month of the year, and two in August, making a Brewers Dozen (13) different beers. We’ll be tapping one each month and announcing it via this email list. If you want to know right away when the keg is tapped, join the Keg Tap Text service which sends you a text message when a new keg is tapped. People on the Keg Tap Text service knew about this keg a week ago!

Get a Free Sierra Nevada T-Shirt

Come on down when we tap a new keg, and have a pint. Make sure it’s under your name and account, complete with postal address. We’ll keep track and if you succeed in ordering a pint from every single keg of the Brewers Dozen, you will receive a free Sierra Nevada T-Shirt!

These are all small batch, small keg beers, so we won’t be doing growler fills, and even then there are only an estimated 40 pints per keg. To get the T-Shirt you have to order a pint from every keg, so when it gets tapped, better hurry!
