What’s New? What’s Coming?

The Gose Experiment worked out nicely and we are going to rotate between the Raspberry Gose and the Passionfruit gose on a regular basis!  Always going to try and have AT least one sour beer on tap.

We also tapped a new beer last week that has been very popular, ESB After Dark.  An Uber malty ESB that is incredibly drinkable…goes wonderfully with food.

Going forward we will have more barrel aged beer available.  We have a Juniper Berry IPA in a Gin Barrel, a Maple Porter in a whiskey Barrel, and some wine and rum barrels that will get a workout as well!

Gose…Gose…Gose…

We will be tapping THREE new Gose styled beers over the next week.  Today we tap our Traditional Gose as well as our Passion of The Gose.   A Passionfruit infused Gose which is out of this world.

Next week we are also tapping a Raspberry Gose which tastes more like a Raspberry Soda!  We went heavy on the Raspberry to say the least!  Pictured below is the Gose aging on the Raspberries.

There will be a concerted effort to have a Gose on tap throughout the year so we had to test a few varieties…ALL SUPER SMALL batches!  So if you want to try it, come and get it!

This Saturday we are tapping this years Pumpkin Beer (I know, close to October when you’re already sick of Pumpkin) OH MY GOURD! IT’S BARREL AGED!  We made it in April and let it hang out in a Whiskey Barrel until last week.  Get this…it contains REAL PUMPKIN!  It’s a Stout base, around 7% ABV with pumpkin, cinnamon, and a kiss of nutmeg.   Nice chocolate/roast malt flavor with pumpkin spice on the nose and the back end.

A portion of the beer sales Saturday are going to the Humane Society as we host a fundraiser for them.  We are raffling off the Whiskey Barrel the beer was aged in, and a $50 BBC Gift Card.  Also having some other cool stuff like cat themed cocktails (Which we will be donating $5 from each cocktail to the Humane Society).

Stop in for great Barrel Aged beer and help out some cats and dogs in need!  You can also get a free BBC sticker for donating something (or cash) from their wishlist.  https://beavercountyhumanesociety.org/our-wish-list

WienerFest 2017 and German Pale Ale

WienerFest is this weekend! Oktoberfest is upon us and we have just tapped our German Pale Ale…that means we have wieners.  The German Pale Ale is one of (if not) the best beers we make annually.  We tap this around Oktoberfest every year.  It has the malt base of a tradtional Oktoberfest beer, but we add German Merkur and Magnum hops for a nice bitter backbone.

We will have an assortment of sausages to stick in between delicious soft buns all weekend long. Also a few choice toppings like cooked onions, peppers, mustard, and cheese.

Stop in, grab a wiener,grab a beer and enjoy WienerFest 2017.

Barrel Aged Rye Stout and PB Chocolate Martinis!

Friday we will be tapping our most recent barrel Aged experiment…a Rye Stout…in a whiskey barrel.  I tried my first Rye based Stout about three years ago…long story short a small brewer in California sent it to me with the message, “You really need to try doing this!”  Well, three years later I finally get to it and I added the twist of barrel aging it.

Comes across very nice.  There is a spicy bite to the rye which gives into some chocolate and mild oak notes.  Bone dry for the style.

We also are having Chocolate Peanut Butter Martinis this weekend!  I wasn’t in the mood for one so…TA-DA!  It’s on the menu.

Farm To Glass Event August 25th

We always try and use local ingredients at the brewery.  When we do coffee beers we use locally roasted coffee, most of our food comes from farmers markets, ALL of our spirits and wine are made here in Pennsylvania.

So our next brewery even just made sense…Farm To Glass will take place at the brewery on August 25th.  We are going to use all FRESH AND LOCAL ingredients to make our cocktails.

Some of he examples…

1. Fresh Made Bloody Mary with Wapsipinicon Peach Heirloom Tomatoes: We have tinkered with the recipe and this one with be made with 0% mix! Just Local Tomatoes, Jalapenos, Parsley, Pepper, Salt, and Vodka.

2. Cucumber Martini: Pressed local Cucumber Juice, A hint of Apple Juice, and Gin or Vodka. Wonderfully refreshing.

3. Landlocked Peach Ginger Martini: We have done this before with amazing success. We cook down local peaches with some ginger and then finish it off with a Spiced distilled honey from Wigle Whiskey.

Mark your calendars!  Should be a fun event with drinks you won’t be able to get anywhere else!
