No Gravatar

We have a great week of beery wonders ahead at The Charleston Beer Exchange!

Terrapin Samurai Krunkles Growler Feature (8/28)
Tomorrow (Tuesday 8/28) at 5pm we'll be tapping the latest Side Project beer from Terrapin Beer Co. for growler fills!  This one is called Samurai Krunkles and it is an extraordinarily unique IPA made with Ginger and Green Tea!  Here's what the brewery has to say about this beer:

"Taking the Orient and the rest of the world by storm, Krunkles returns! In this edition of the bearded IPA brewer's saga, "Samurai Krunkles," as he was once known in the Far East, pulls out all the hops from his katana's sheath to make this Asian flared brew. While traveling around the Pacific in a souped up rickshaw pulled by his trusty side kick Cato, Krunkles uncovered unique brewing ingredients such as jasmine rice, jasmine green tea and the finest ginger the Orient had to offer for this Samurai master's ale. ABV: 7.1% IBU's: 70 O.G.: 6.5 Malt: 2-Row, Best Munich, Victory, Pale Crystal Hops: Columbus, Nugget, Falconers Flight, Zythos, Sorachi Ace Other: Green Tea, Jasmine Rice, Ginger"

Ted's Butcherblock Cask Beer Breakfast (9/1)
Join us at Ted's Butcherblock the morning of Saturday September 1st starting at 10am (and going as long as the beer lasts) for a special brunch style cask ale event featuring our very own Citrus Ninja Exchange collaboration Double IPA with Westbrook Brewing Company!  We'll be serving pints of a special cask of this big beer treated with an extra dose of grapefruit peel – think of it like your morning juice but with a 9.5% ABV punch!  There will be 4 different deliciously paired plates available.  No reservations required.  Pay as you go.  For more information (including menu/pricing) please visit TedsButcherblock.com and we'll see you there!

FEATURED AUGUST WINES

Morgan Cotes du Crow's,  

$18, Monterey County, CA 

Blend of 55% Syrah and 45% Grenache from central and southern Monterey County.  This Rhone-style blend has a rich ruby red color, highlighted with purple edges. Blackberry pie, boysenberry and violet aromas jump out of the glass. The wine is medium-bodied with soft tannins; it offers a mouthful of dried cherry, pear and blackberry flavors. Its weight and balance make it a perfect pairing with anything off the grill.

 

Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc + Viognier,

$14, Napa Valley, CA 

The 2011 bottling of this distinctive blend opens with a dazzling spectrum of fruit and floral aromas, from crisp white peach, honeyed pear and sweet mango, to touches of fresh jasmine blossom and white chai tea. Filled with bright and juicy fruits, the palate flaunts flavors of succulent white nectarine, candied pineapple, green fig and subtle grapefruit.

This month, we're proud to formally introduce our new Chef, Brian Parkhurst. Brian has been at the helm in the kitchen since May, and as you may have noticed, he's been making his mark with some great new items in the case and on the menu. From housemade pates, pickled vegetables and special sandwiches to pretty much anything on the Big Green Egg, Brian is passionate about the food he's creating at Ted's. Originally from Illinois, he came to Charleston to attend Johnston & Wales University, and his local experience since graduating includes stints at Peninsula Grill, Mercato, Al di La, Fulton Five and Cru Catering. 

 

Be sure to stop by this month and say hello to Brian, and while you're at it, wish him a happy birthday! We'll help him celebrate his birthday weekend with a couple of very special events at the end of this month (see below for details). Welcome, and Happy Birthday, Brian!
