Dear Enotecans,

cigar-city-brewing-logoA very unique beer series has just been released.  Widmer collaborated with the famed Cigar City brewing of Florida to create a beer designed after an “Old Fashioned” cocktail.  They then aged this beer 3 different ways: Bourbon Barrels, Rye Whiskey Barrels, and on New Oak Spirals.

The result is called “Gentlemen’s Club” and features three unique beers.

Special Beer/Cocktail Event

On September 5th, from 5-8pm Enoteca Drinkery & Refuge is holding a very special event featuring all 3 beers on tap.

Widmer Brothers

  • Place: Enoteca Drinkery & Refuge, Post Falls

About the Gentlemen’s Club Beer

Drawing inspiration from an Old Fashioned cocktail recipe and the Gentlemen’s Clubs where the cocktail was first served over 100 years ago, this collaboration beer brings together two breweries from opposite ends of the country and ingredients from the home states of both breweries. Using an Old Ale recipe as the base beer, Gentlemen’s Club “Old Fashioned Style Ale” was brewed with cherries and oranges, Alchemy, Sorachi Ace and Pacifica hops, and hand-selected specialty malts to mirror the qualities typically found in an Old Fashioned cocktail. The beer was aged on three different woods: bourbon barrels, rye whiskey barrels and new oak spirals, resulting in three unique versions of the beer, each offering a slightly different take on the same age-old recipe.
