Just a reminder that Laurel Highland Meadery will be doing a mead tasting at our brewery this Friday! Event details here https://www.facebook.com/events/1136687113011364/
We are also re-tapping our Chamomile Wheat! We changed the recipe up a bit, less banana / clove flavor than before and more chamomile was added. Stop in this weekend to try both!
Yes, it has finally arrived…the time of the year when drinking pumpkin beers is acceptable! I know some of you were drinking them in July and may already be sick of them, but I am here to tell you they actually taste better when the leaves are changing.
Another crazy thing about pumpkin beers in….We actually TAP OUR PUMPKIN BEERS IN OCTOBER! And let me blow your mind…they actually contain REAL PUMPKIN. Hard to believe, but it is true.
We will have two for your consumption this weekend.
- Mashing Pumpkins – Brewed by our bartender, Nate Banks. It is a stout forward beer. Chocolaty, roasty, a hint of spice. VERY dark.
- Pumpkin Ale – Screw the crazy names. This is a straight forward pumpkin beer. No crazy sweetness or too much spice. We just made a good beer….and added pumpkins. There is a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg, but if I didn’t tell you, you may not notice.
Laurel Highland Meadery makes the best mead in PA…I won’t move off that until someone else impresses me this much. It is the only mead we serve and we are lucky enough to have the meadmakers themselves stop in to the brewery once a year for a tasting.
October 9th from 7-9 they will be in sampling some NEW never before released meads…We are VERY excited. Info can be found on our facebook event page here
MEAD TASTING EVENT INFO
We are also tapping our first Pumpkin beer of the year! Mashing Pumpkins is brewed by Nate Banks and is a pumpkin stout. We are tapping another one next week as well!
We squirlled away a few kegs of the Double I.Porter.A a few months ago to let it lager a bit (we use a lager/ale hybrid yeast in it), and now it is ready to be tapped! Not much of it left, but if you missed it last time we have it again.
We are also going to have some Kraut and Kielbasa to eat as well this weekend so bring your appetite!
YES! We are making Pumpkin beers! It seems I get asked that daily…we will however not be tapping them until October. I know, you really want one…but you will still want one in October…when they SHOULD be served.
This year we are doing two again.
- Mashing Pumpkins – guest brewed by our Bartender Nate Banks. It is a very roasty stout. With plenty of Pumpkin, Cinnamon, and Nutmeg. JET BLACK color and around 6.8% ABV
- Harvest Pumpkin Ale – Bready and Biscuty. Tons of cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of All Spice. A bit of sweetness on the back end, but otherwise malty.
It’s September so we now give you permission to start drinking Oktoberfest Styled beers!
This Thursday we are tapping our GPA (German Pale Ale). It is what we like to call our “Hoppy Oktoberfest”. Tons of Pilsner and Munich Malts with nothing but earthy Merkur and Magnum hops from Germany.
Tp celebrate the start of the “fall beer season”, we are also having wieners cooked in sauerkraut and our German Pale Ale! $1.25 a piece or 3 for $3. We also have some GOOD mustard for you to lube up with.
So stop in this weekend for a wiener and a beer!
It won’t change your life, but it doesn’t happen every day…or ever.
We have a beer totally made with Teamaker hops on tap. That isn’t rare, it is non-existent. I have found two…yes TWO other beers on the planet that have used these.
Here is a brief description of the hop from Great Lakes Hops.
“A unique hybrid high aroma hop also used in making antimicrobial organic herbal teas and compounds. Teamaker’s alpha and beta levels are reversed. Has antibiotic properties and has potential use as a replacement for antibiotics in animal husbandry. Teamaker adds flavor without additional bitterness. The high beta acids inhibit bacterial growth and can replace formalin in sugar processing. Teamaker is used as a “late hopping” aroma hop to add flavor where additional bittering is not desired. Also makes a good flavored ice tea.”
Stop in, grab a pint…you won’t have this chance anywhere else!
First up on Friday we will be tapping last summers hit, the Slutty Blonde. Fresh hopped with TeaMaker hops directly from my backyard. It is a very easy drinking beer with some Pilsner like tastes from the malt but an otherwise clean profile.
Our second will be tapped on Saturday. The Simcoe Rosemary Pale Ale. Brewed with fresh rosemary and Simcoe hops which produce a piney aroma and taste that pairs perfectly with one of my favorite herbs.
We also have a limited amount of the Simcoe Rosemary in Bottles as well.
One of the things that makes the Brewery unique is our willingness to experiment with brand new hops. Jarrylo, Huell Melon, Mandarina Bavaria, Mosaic…these are just a few of the new hops out on the market that we have infused into our beers.
This fall we plan on using a few more…
1. Equinox (Formerly hbc 366) – Described as citrusy, green pepper, and papaya?!?! Also described as very complex and “alot going on inside”. It is a very high alpha acid hop so we will be using this in a single hopped IPA down the line.
2. German Merkur and Magnum – Not new by any means, however you almost NEVER see these used in American beers. We do our GPA or German Pale Ale with them for a super earthy Oktoberfest styled pale ale.
3. Zythos – A proprietary hop blend that produces a Pineapple and Pine aroma and taste. Still debating what we are going to use these in, either an IPA or a Saison.
If you ever want to know what type of hops we are using feel free to ask, there aren’t any secrets to our beer…we want you to enjoy it!
