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.
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!
You’d be surprised how many people have said “I CAN’T GET A ROOT BEER FLOAT!?!”, the last few weeks.
Well, this Friday we should have that problem fixed. We are going to have the Root Beer back, and we also welcome back our Ginger Pear Soda. Made with ALOT of fresh ginger and Pear Nectar…lightly sweetened with Coconut Sugar.
One of my personal favorite beers at the brewery will be pouring this weekend. The Brown Note is an English Brown made with a unique seasonal malt which adds an incredibly unique “Brown” flavor to the beer.
I always describe it as “picture a macro brewed brown ale…now add flavor…and reduce the ABV.” The Brown Note comes in only at 3.8% ABV and I challenge you to find a maltier flavored beer at that same ABV.
We will be open July 4th for limited Hours from 4-6 PM. If you want to fill up a growler for tonight’s fireworks or bring in an out of town friend in for a brew we will be open! We will also conduct a tour at 6pm if anyone is interested.
