This year, the Rhythm, Wine and Brews Experience will feature a larger offering of craft beer to taste, including one of our local favorites, the award-winning La Quinta Brewing Co. Their Indian Canyon IPA, One Eleven Pale Ale, Poolside Blonde and Tan Line Brown Ale have all won medals. Be sure to stop by their booth to taste their award-winning brews.
Another highlight of this year’s craft brew experience is the California debut of 311 Amber Ale. Multi-platinum rock band 311 partnered with Rock Brothers Brewing to create an impressive custom craft beer; 311 Amber Ale was released in several states last summer in conjunction with the band’s 25th anniversary.
“Besides the obvious connection to the band’s hit song of the same name, 311 wanted a very drinkable amber ale with a craft beer twist,” said Rock Brothers co-founder Kevin Lilly.
According to Lilly, the ale “shines bright,” as roasted caramel malts blend with Equinox hops, resulting in subtle hints of tropical citrus and kush aromatics. The craft beer's blend of malted barleys and unique hops give 311 Amber Ale a distinctive flavor, setting it apart from other amber ales.
Wine aficionados will enjoy this year’s selection of artisanal wine. Turnbull Winery will pour tastes of their small batch, world-class Cabernet Sauvignon wines produced in Oakville and the Napa Valley region. Turnbull’s quality is reflected in their high ratings. The Wine Advocate and Mr. Parker scored all six of their Cabernet Sauvignons at 95 points and above.
Smoke Tree Wine is new this year. It is a premium Sonoma wine brand launched last fall by Moët Hennessy. Smoke Tree will offer a Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir. Terraza de los Andes, another Moët Hennessy brand, will offer tasters wine from varietals grown and produced in the Mendoza region of Argentina.
