Rhizome Productions is very excited to announce the 3rd Edition of Rhiz(H)ome Virtual Beer Experience taking place on Saturday, August 15 from 2-4 pm. There will only be 24 packages available for this limited opportunity. As always we are honored to work with the team at Woodland Wine Merchant to make this experience possible.
Each package is $119 (plus tax) and designed for 2-4 people. For our Belgian/Trappist Beer Experience, we would suggest doing this at home tasting with 4 total people as the average ABV is pretty high! Each package includes a custom 9 pack from several of the best Belgian breweries, cheese, charcuterie, chocolate, and great merchandise.
All of these amazing beers are imported by Merchant du Vin. They have been importing amazing beers from all over Europe to the United States since 1978. Rob Nelson, who has been with the company for 20 years will be joining us for this event and has not only visited all the breweries but has great stories to share. Additionally, we plan to have representatives from some of the breweries join us live or they will send us a video recording.
