Crabbie's Happy Hour at RiRa
Published on Thu, Mar 14, 2013 (2:12 p.m.)LAS VEGAS, NV – On Monday, March 18 from 5 to 7 p.m., beer drinkers are invited to come out to RiRa Irish Pub (The Shoppes at Mandalay Bay Place, 3930 Las Vegas Blvd) for a taste of the United Kingdom’s number one selling bottled beer, Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer. Crabbie’s, which Bon Appetit called “a ginger beer that lives up to its name,” is a 4.8% ABV, refreshing ginger beer – only for grown-ups.
RiRa will feature Crabbie’s as it is meant to be served, over ice with a slice of citrus, for $4 and in a few cocktails, such as: Dark & Crabbie with dark rum, Crabbie’s and fresh lime and Crabbie Patty, Irish whiskey and Crabbie’s, both for $6.
“Crabbie’s is a great alternative for people who like to drink beer or cider, with no equal in today’s American market,” says Phil Clarke, general manager of St. Killian, the exclusive U.S. importer of Crabbie’s. “We look forward to our Crabbie’s event at RiRa, and we hope to meet new friends and fans and enjoy this delicious drink together.”
Crabbie’s is fermented with the finest imported ginger and steeped for up to eight weeks to allow the complex natural flavors to fully develop, creating a smooth ginger beer with deep, deliciously spicy flavor and a sparkling finish.
Scottish merchant-adventurer John Crabbie first imported ginger from the Far East into the ancient port of Leith, Edinburgh in 1801. Today, more than 200 years later, John Crabbie’s still uses the same ginger to develop the one-of-a-kind flavor of their ginger beer.
Since Crabbie’s entered the U.S. market last year, it has received praised including The Weekly Pint named it “The Class of 2012, The Top Brews to Find and Drink Right Now” and 7x7 which featured Crabbie's as one of the “Healthy Beers for the New Year.”
