Goodness Happy Hour
An online gathering of good people and good spirits.
Why Limit Happy to an Hour?
Our thoughts exactly! At WildPlum we serve Happy all day long. And we’re bringing some of that Goodness Elevated to our new virtual Goodness Happy Hour gatherings. There are so many brilliant wines, beers, and liquors, and we want to share them with you, and bring together amazing people like you. We all deserve a moment to take a breadth, relax, enjoy each other’s company and experience new and wonderful, or old and cherished, beverages with old and new friends.
On the third Thursday of every month, join our team for laughs, conversation and lots of insider gossip on what’s hot in the kingdom of wine, beer and spirits. The best thing about a virtual happy hour is that you can invite friends and family from near and far to share a glass with you. Join Jen Howell, Goodness Curator, for our monthly Goodness Happy Hour with our guest wine/beer/spirits aficionados. No matter your beverage of choice, we’ve got you covered. We believe food should feed the soul, and we will share food pairings to delight your palate.

Native Gin 375ml $25
We will be tasting Beez Kneez featuring Native Gin.
This gin uses only native Colorado botanicals, which was a difficult endeavor. Colorado is very limited in the range of useful plants, and many are elusive – several are considered weeds, and others aren’t grown commercially by anyone (until now). It’s a careful balancing act between finding these plants and protecting our wild places. (No foraging outside our urban landscapes.)
If you’re not a gin-lover, we encourage you to try Dry Land’s Native Colorado Gin—it’s a lovely experience for anyone on the fence about gin.
Heirloom Wheat Whiskey $35
We will be tasting a Rosemary Maple Whiskey Sour featuring Heirloom Wheat Whiskey.
The Dry Land Heirloom Wheat Whiskey is distilled from an ancient grain grown in the middle of the parched lands of the American west. Dry Land Distillers is the only distiller in the country distilling the grain, and they create a single malt, single barrel 100% American wheat whiskey unlike any other. It has a rich, delicate and complex profile that makes it ideal for sipping straight or on the rocks. It is gently aged in light-to-medium charred new American oak barrels. The whiskey celebrates the vanilla, brown sugar, and cinnamon highlights from the barrel. The easy, rich nature of the whiskey belies the challenging environment it thrives in—a perfect representation of the land around us.
Aged Sugar Cane Rum $30
We will be tasting Hot Buttered Rum featuring Aged Sugar Cane Rum. Hot Buttered Rum Recipe
This Pure Cane Rum is made from raw sugar cane and sugar cane syrup sourced directly from a family grower in Louisiana. Dry Land gets as close to the sugar cane as they can (without being there). Rather than use processed sugar and molasses as most distilleries do, they use the sugars produced right from the cane – so it is as unprocessed as one can get. Plus, they crush the raw sugar cane itself and use it during fermentation to create a rich, vegetal nature typically only found in island-style agricole rums.
