The Pint Jockeys return for another monthly tasting event featuring new, seasonal and rare craft brews from the Del Papa Distributing portfolio and will debut the new Texas City facility (relocated from Galveston.) The April 19 event will feature spring and summer selections from Shock Top, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Rahr & Sons Brewing Company, New Belgium Brewing Company and Rogue Ales. The event is free and open to adults ages 21 and older.

The April tasting event will feature:

Shock Top Lemon Shandy – Shock Top Lemon Shandy is a unique blend of refreshing and smooth wheat beer perfectly complemented by spices and natural lemonade flavor. This recently released seasonal brew by Shock Top is available through the end of July.

Saint Arnold Summer Pils – Saint Arnold’s bohemian-style pilsner is crisp and refreshing with a delicate, sweet German malt taste complemented by an abundant hop aroma and flavor. The seasonal brew is available May through August and is perfect for a hot summer day.

Sierra Nevada Summerfest (Beaumont location) – Summerfest is a refreshing, pilsner-style and is incredibly smooth. The crisp, light ale will quench your thirst with its big aroma and tangy hob bite and is a perfect summertime treat.

Rahr & Sons Bucking Bock – The Pint Jockeys’ April Beer of the Month (BOTM) is the golden-colored Bucking Bock, a traditional German spring bock beer. The award-winning bock has a smooth malty character and is available through April.

Sierra Nevada Hoptimum – This whole-cone imperial IPA is aggressively hopped and carries layers of a bold aroma featuring notes of grapefruit rind, rose, lilac, cedar, and tropical fruit culminating in a dry and lasting finish.

Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale – Rogue Ales has collided with Voodoo Doughnut to create Bacon Maple Ale! This unique artisan creation of various smoked malts contains a baker’s dozen number of ingredients including bacon and maple syrup from one of Voodoo’s signature doughnuts.

New Belgium Shift – The lightly-hopped pale lager is dedicated to the New Belgium employee-owners who work in shifts to brew world-class beers. Enjoy this brew crafted from Target, Nelson Sauvin, Liberty and Cascade hops after a long day of work or play.
