Join Finnriver Farm and Cidery on Thursday, August 18th from 6-9 PM as we celebrate the night before the Gold Medal match for women’s soccer.
In addition to a medal worthy cider flight, Bazi will be creating a cider dessert utilizing Finnriver’s Sparkling Black Currant and some cider cocktails. Jana and her team will also be on site sampling Finnriver’s various lines of ciders.
About the Finnriver cider flight. A cider flight will be available for $10 – 5 oz pours of each of the following four ciders:
Apple Abbey - 6.5% ABV, Belgian-inspired craft cider fermented in two batches, with two strains of Belgian-style abbey yeast. Nose of tropical fruit with hints of spice and pepper. Subtle infusion of oak to fill in the body and then sweeten with organic can sugar for a semi-sweet finish. Double Gold Medal winner at the 2015 Seattle Wine Awards.
Oak & Apple – 6.5% ABV, barrel-aged craft cider. Citrus is layered with a smooth whiskey depth and spicy rye spirit showcasing American Oak, Northwest Rye Whiskey and Washington organic apples for a semi dry finish. Gold Medal winner at the 2015 Portland International Cider Cup.
Sidra - 6.5% ABV, Spanish-American craft cider fermented with open head space in the tank allowing exposure to oxygen, which promotes the wild vinegar bacteria that provide the pungent acetic nose these ciders, are famous for. Fermented with oak and lightly sweetened with organic cane sugar for a dry finish.
Sparkling Black Currant - 6.5% ABV, a light cider with a purple blush that blends heirloom and organic dessert apples with the tart mysteries of organic black currant. Immensely drinkable with a semi-sweet finish. Gold Medal winner at the 2015 World Cider Championship.
About Finnriver Farm and Cidery
Based along the Olympic Peninsula, Finnriver grows over twenty varieties of traditional and heirloom apples in their organic orchard, to feature in their traditional and specialty ciders. They source organic WA dessert apples for their contemporary ciders. And also glean wild apples from their neighbors and local homesteads.

About Chimay Trappist Ales. Brewed by Cistercian monks since 1862, Chimay Trappist Ales’ home is in the Abbey of Scourmont in southern Belgium.

Premiere: 7% ABV, this copper colored ale boasts flavors of apricots, brown sugar and nutmeg. Ratebeer score of 99 points.

Celebrate Belgium Independence Day on Thursday, July 21st from 5-9 PM with a featured Brasserie Dupont tasting tray including the Classic Dupont, Avec Les Bon Vous, and Duex Amix (collaboration with The Lost Abbey) for $9 (3 – 5 oz pours of each).
Commemorate when the Belgians said “enough” to the Dutch. Enough with the wooden shoes. Enough tulips. And they celebrated their independence by doing what they do better than anyone – they had a beer festival.

Celebrate St. Arnoldus Day on Monday, July 18 from 5-10 PM.
Every July 18, the Belgians honor Saint Arnoldus with a feast in Brussels. He’s most famous for urging his congregation to “Drink Beer, Not Water” during a plague epidemic. Because beer is sterilized in production and the local water was the source of the sickness, people were saved. A true miracle!
A special taster tray featuring St Feuillien Blonde, Bosteels Tripel Karmeliet, La Trappe Bockbier, and Cuvee des Jacobin Rouge will be available for $12 (4 – 5 oz pours).
Attendees will receive raffle tickets for prizes including St Arnoldus t-shirts, key chains and more (while supplies last).
