Bigger and better than last year’s event, Boom Days 2015 will also feature music, several food trucks, a 5K running event, a Home Brew Competition, outdoor games like rolle bolle, demonstrations from Expertease Dance Studio, and special Sunday School Beer Education Class!
Cuvée de Boom is an unhopped confection that consists of 45% Pinot Grigio grapes and 55% Belgian style blond ale.
Last year’s Cuvee de Boom was a huge hit, and this year’s will be equally as special. A larger number of bottles will be made available to the public, but will only be sold on site during Boom Days. More details:
Cuvée de Boom – 10.5%ABV
Appearance – Fluffy white head which quickly dissipates into a light champagne like effervescent beverage.
Aroma – Light malt that interplays with white plum or grape aroma
Flavor – Smooth mouth feel from the wine morphs into a collage of champagne, a hint of plum, which lingers into an assertively dry finish.
