Events This Week And Looking Forward

On Wednesday, Jack Brown’s in downtown Roanoke will be having a Steal The Pint event featuring Allagash Brewing.  Known for both a well crafted line up of year round, primarily Belgian style ales, the Maine brewery also produces a long list of complex limited release beers which utilize a variety of techniques to achieve their flavors and aromas, from wine barrel aging to the use of their own “house” Brettanomyces strain of yeast.  The event starts at 5pm.

This weekend also brings the opportunity to attend a beer (and wine) festival in nearby Forest, Va.  “Kegs & Corks” will feature close to fifteen Virginia and North Carolina breweries and will be held at Forest Professional Park from noon to 6pm on Saturday, July 19.

Of course, we are also getting ever closer to Roanoke’s own Microfestivus beer festival, which will be held on August 9 from noon to 6pm.  This marks the 17th anniversary of the festival.  A current listing of breweries is available on the event’s Facebook page – with notable inclusions from new Roanoke area breweries Chaos Mountain and Flying Mouse to two Richmond breweries, Hardywood Park and Isley Brewing.
