Apple Beer Release Party at the Root Note Café. The Turtle Stack Brewery in LaCrosse is having a release party for its new Turtle Stack Graff at the Root Note Café this coming Tuesday November 24th starting at 6:00. In addition to the Graff on tap there will be Hoch Orchard’s new Sweet Apricot Cider, and our Wyndfall dry Root River Raspberry. All three beverages start with Hoch Orchard organic apple cider. Brent from Turtle Stack will be introducing his new beer, Rob will be there to answer questions about Wyndfall Artisan Cyders and Harry will talk about the apples and apricots. It should be a fun and interesting evening along with some good drinks.
The Turtle Stack Graff is a beer fermented with fresh apple cider. Caramel malts and roasted barley in the base beer provide a subtle yet complex malt backbone to compliment the fresh, perhaps gently baked, apple character.
Our Apricot Cider starts with a blend of several apple varieties to create a rich tart cider. We then add some of our estate produced organic Apricot juice. We finish it with organic cane sugar to soften the tartness of our northern grown apricots. This is a semi-sweet cider with a burst of apricot flavor.
Root River Raspberry. This is one of our Wyndfall Brand hard ciders. Root River is a blend of several apple varieties to create a balanced dry cider. We then add some of our estate raspberry juice and ferment it a second time. A little bit of organic cane sugar is added to counter the sharpness of the raspberries. This is a dry crisp New England style apple cider with a light raspberry finish.
Hoch Orchard Hard Ciders are on Tap now at the Bodega Brew Pub and the Root Note Café in Downtown LaCrosse.
