CT Cask Fest Tapping 36 Casks, 18 CT Breweries – Fairfield, CT

CT Cask Fest

Two places that we love in Fairfield, Craft 260 and Harry’s Wine & Liquor, have teamed up to create a killer beer festival! Check out how sick this is: 18 Breweries from Connecticut will be bringing two casks each. The awesome thing about this is that each brewery will start with the same base beer, but both casks from each will be different with spices, hops, and other add-ins. So, it’ll be an interesting experiment to see how breweries can change the taste of a brew by just adding in different ingredients and methods.

Rocket-fueled Ardbeg Scotch Tasting at Harry’s on Saturday

4 Oct

Arbeg Scotch has gone where no man or liquor has gone before…outer space.  Back in 2011 they sent a rocket up into space that contained “Ardberg-crafted molecules.”  The purpose?  Let’s have Ardbeg explain:

“This is the most audacious adventure ever undertaken by Ardbeg Distillery – or any other distillery for that matter. Ardbeg is taking part in an experiment led by U.S.-based space research company NanoRacks LLC to test these micro-organic compounds. The maturation experiment will test the interaction of these Ardbeg-crafted molecules with charred oak. This will take place in normal gravity on Earth and also microgravity, far up in space on the International Space Station.  The vials contain a class of compounds known as “terpenes” –  a set of chemicals which are very widespread in nature and often very aromatic and flavour-active – as well as other molecules.  It is the interaction of these molecules with oak wood that forms the basis of this maturation experiment. This is believed to be the first time anyone has ever studied terpenes and other molecules in near zero-gravity.”
