2017 Wine Programming • Wine Down Wednesdays, Wine Dinners, Happy Hour

Posted by on February 28, 2017

At Frothy Monkey we take coffee seriously, but we also take wine seriously.  This is initially a surprise to those who aren’t familiar with the forward thinking breakfast through dinner coffeehouse concept, but in the summer of 2015 Frothy gained national recognition by Food & Wine Magazine as one of ‘8 Phenomenal Coffee Shops Where You Can Get Your Wine Fix’. This will be the fourth year of wine focused programming for our evening customers, and it includes a weekly Wine Down Wednesday, Wine Love dinners, and Happy Hour.

“We want our wine offerings to be approachable, yet educational,” says Brittney Harrison, Frothy’s wine and hospitality guru. “My favorite thing about wine is that it allows you to branch out and try new things, and that is what we have in mind when we are tasting and choosing wines.” 

A new year of wine at Frothy Monkey begins on Wednesday, March 22nd with the popular Wine Down Wednesday. The Downtown Franklin, 12South, Downtown Nashville, and Southside Chattanooga locations are hosting this weekly event. We will have 3 pours of wine and snacks for $15 every Wednesday 5-7pm.  Beer flights are also available for those who would rather sip a brew. $15 for 6 beer tasters and snacks. frothymonkey.com/wdw

Wine Love Dinners are scheduled for April 6, 7, 22; June 15, 16, 17; September 7, 8, 9; and November 16, 17, 18. The five-course dinners typically take place 6pm – 9pm on Thursday nights at our Franklin location, Friday nights at our DWTN Nashville / Avenue of the Arts location, and new this year Saturday nights at our Southside Chattanooga location. They are a collaboration between Chef Chase Ingalls, Head Baker Jen Mello, and our wine partners. Tickets are $60++ and will be made available at frothymonkey.com/winebeerlove

Try Happy Hour at our Downtown Franklin, 12South, Downtown Nashville, and Southside Chattanooga locations. Select beers and wine are 2 for 1, Monday through Friday 4pm – 6pm. frothymonkey.com/happyhour

Wine Down Wednesday and Happy Hour both lead into Frothy Monkey’s dinner hours which start at 5pm – close. Visit frothymonkey.com/menu for dinner selections.

2017 Festivus Blend

Posted by on November 15, 2017

A blend of coffees from Sumatra + Ethiopia feat. notes of dried fruits, vanilla + baking spices

For the holidays we combine two very different and complex coffees from Sumatra and Ethiopia. For the 2017 Festival Blend, we have once again selected two of the finest coffees Sumatra and Ethiopia have to offer.

We commissioned local artist, Neal Russler to hand letter the Festivus art and the packaging was screen printed in Nashville, TN by Grand Palace.

This year’s Ethiopian component is a naturally processed coffee from the Konga cooperative, grown in the world famous Yirgacheffe region. This complex coffee adds plenty of dark fruit notes to the blend, such as cherry and blueberry.  

The Sumatran component comes from the famed Aceh region in northern Sumatra.  Here the coffees are picked at peak ripeness and then processed in the “wet hull” method that has made Sumatra famous for their flavor profile. Our 2017 Festival Blend adds plenty of depth with notes of vanilla, oak, and baking spices.   

Together, these coffees create our version of one of the world’s original coffee blends, Mocha Java.  

Festivus Blend will be available at all Frothy Monkey locations and from our online store on Saturday, November 18, 2017 and throughout the holiday season!

Cotes du Rhone
Maddie – Nations
I like this one because it’s an easy-drinking, light-bodied red that’s perfect for a warm Fall!
Ali – Nations
This wine is my favorite because as soon as I tasted it my palate lit up.

Linen Sauvignon Blanc
Melissa + Elisa – Downtown Nashville
We like this one because it’s perfect for girl time on the patio.
Katie – Chattanooga
This wine is my favorite because it’s good with food, but it’s also great by itself.
Josiah – Chattanooga
I like that this one is citrusy, but not super sweet. It’s light bodied and I really like the grapefruit notes!

Txakalina Rosé
Elizabeth – Nations
This one is refreshing and crisp. I like it because it reminds me of honeycrisp apples and home (Michigan)!
Alex – Downtown Nashville
I like it because it’s easy drinking but with a full flavor and fun effervescence!

Commuter Pinot Noir
Hannah – Downtown Nashville
It’s eclectic and juicy!
Dylan – Chattanooga
My favorite thing is how easy it is to drink. The tannic structure is light and it tastes very Fall to me.

Kung Fu Riesling
Michala – Downtown Nashville
This was my favorite white; it’s a great starter wine for someone who needs a little sweetness. Very light and approachable.

Nicolas Chardonnay
Jacob – Downtown Nashville
I like the Chardonnay because it’s super versatile and can go with anything. It finishes out smooth, leaving me just enough to enjoy!

Ferrari-Carano Merlot
Wilson – Nations
Try this one, because team Merlot is making a comeback.

Don Ramon Tempranillo/Grenache
Amy – Chattanooga
This wine is going to be perfect for Winter. It’s reminiscent of pine and spice—it’s delish!

Beaujolais
Ellie – Nations
I like this one because it’s a little more hearty than a Pinot Noir and is perfect for cool, Fall weather.
