Mural Unveiling Reception... Meet the...


Mural Unveiling Reception... Meet the Artists with music by Ramona Lane



High Falls artist Eugene Stetz has been commissioned to paint a mural in the heart of New Paltz, directly across the street from Bacchus Restaurant at 48 Main Street, on the NY-208 side of the building. The project is underwritten by Bacchus Restaurant and made possible by Wired Gallery.

The mural, which started on June 15, is expected to be completed by June 26. There will be an artist reception at Bacchus on Friday, July 10, 6:00-8:00pm to bring the community together and welcome this new public art, which will be seen by thousands every day.

The July 10 reception is hosted by Bacchus and will include free finger food, cash bar, and music by Ramona Lane, a band composed by artist’s friends who will start the evening acoustically before going electric after 10 pm. There will also be a small exhibit of Eugene’s smaller works inside the restaurant.

Brewery

The Brewery began when two of our employees, Jason Synan and Mike Renganeschi, began brewing beer on the front porch of Mike's apartment. Once we tasted them, we knew we had to have them at Bacchus. The Brewery will continue to help us be a hub of beer culture in the Hudson Valley. We strive to make innovative and inspired beers that will stand toe-to-toe with the wide selection we've offered for years. Here are a few of the beers we are working on now:

Ad Infinitum Double IPA

A big DIPA at 9% ABV. With each batch, we've been working with different hops blends and additions, so while Batch #2 was fruit-forward and packed with citrus, Batch #4 was loaded with pine and balanced with a soft spice character. We're not sure what the next batch will be like, but we know the hops won't disappoint.

Et Cetera Farmhouse Ale

This 100% Brettanomyces fermented beer follows in the traditions of Belgian-inspired farmhouse ales while incorporating the aggressive hop character of American beer styles. The 7% beer is dry and effervescent with a distinct fruit character, but like a true farmhouse ale, it's balanced by slight tartness and a bit of Brett funk.

Luxuria Stout

This 9% ABV Imperial Stout was released last month. We pulled half of that batch off and aged it in a variety of whiskey barrels that we got from Tuthilltown Distillery in Gardiner. Once the whiskey character develops we'll be adding cherries to the barrels to create a velvety stout with notes of chocolate, wood, and whiskey.
