Boom Island Brewing Company is pleased to announce for the third year running that Cuvée de Boom will be released once again for this year’s Boom Days celebration July 15-17th. A tradition gaining in popularity each year, the much-anticipated Cuvée de Boom will be made available on tap and in bottles starting at 6pm Friday, July 15 and continue through the weekend.
Cuvée de Boom is unhopped and oak aged. Cuvée consists of 45% Pinot Grigio grapes and 55% Belgian style blond ale. Specifically created for our annual Boom Days Festival, this blend awakens a nuanced palate for even the most sophisticated beer aficionado. More details:
Cuvée de Boom – 12.5%ABV
Appearance – Fluffy white head, which quickly dissipates into a light champagne-like effervescent beverage.
Aroma – Light malt that interplays with white plum & grape aroma.
Flavor – Smooth mouth feel from the wine morphs into a collage of champagne with a hint of plum and lingers into an assertively dry finish.
Schedule of events for Friday, July 15th:
4:00pm: Boom Room opens/My Burger Food truck on site.
6:00pm: Cuvée de Boom release party and 750ml bottle blowout. Celebratory fanfare provided by the Twin Cities French Horn Club.
7:00pm: Music by Belgium’s Original Hip-hop rapper Too Tuff, who will drop rhymes in the Antwerp dialect and in English. Too Tuff and collaborator Halve Neuro had a hit single last year in Belgium called Doedizziet (ft. Too Tuff)
8:00pm: Jazz by local luminaries Brad Bellows and Friends, featuring Larry Hillman on saxophone
