It’s the last weekend of the month so that means we have our house made Bloody Mary available. Leek vodka, Black Pepper Whiskey, we like to think it’s one of the best you’ll ever have.
We’re also tapping our new blonde Ale. Made with Czech Saaz and Pilsner Malts. Makes for a wonderful B&T!
On Saturday we are tapping a new beer, a barrel rested Peach Cream Ale. It was in a whiskey barrel, but only for about 6 weeks. We didn’t want the oak/Bourbon flavor to take over, just add a bit of complexity.
We are also doing two pink cocktails this weekend to raise money for a family in need that is dealing with breast cancer. First up is a pink lemonade and Gin Martini, surprisingly good. The second is a strawberry guava vodka spritzer. Sweet and deadly. On Saturday half of each of the purchase price of the cocktails will go towards the family.
Yep, this Friday we do a bottle release of our highest ABV beer to date. A barley wine at 11.4% ABV. Here is a really pretentious “review” of the beer I made:
“Pours with a thick creamy head that grows before my eyes in the goblet I use for English Styled Barley Wines. As I let warm to 48 degrees before I try I take a sniff to enjoy the aroma. Malt forward. While I pick up some yeast in the aroma this is truly malt first beer. Beautiful amber color. Rich, looks like a meal.
The taste is crisp and full of flavor. Mouthfeel is bubbly, but by the end of the glass I was glad there was such a thick barrier on top to keep in all the flavor and freshness. Hops are not prevalent in here. Some earthiness, a touch of floral aroma and taste from the hops. But nothing overpowering. (It is only 30 IBU’s) Will welcome a few of these into my cellar to see how they age over time!”
We are also giving out a free order of nachos to anyone that wants to drink theirs in house! We aren’t distributing these anywhere, at the pub is the only place you can get them!
We are doing a very special bottle release of our highest ABV beer to date aptly named “Friday the XIVth”!
It’s an English styled barley wine, great for aging or drinking fresh. We recommend you open, pour, then let it breathe for 5-8 minutes. Allow the beer to warm and the carbonation to go down a bit as this is a sipper at 11.4%.
We have a special label created by local artist @artbytyreepatrick. Please check him out, he does truly amazing work. His full website has some awesome art as well. www.artbytyreepatrick.com.
There are only 288 bottles of this and they are hand numbered. They are $8 a piece, and if you buy four the price is $30. We will also be giving out a free sticker of the label to anyone purchasing the beer on our opening weekend! It would look awesome on any beer fridge!
For tax day, April 15th, we will also have a free order of nachos with cheese for anyone that buys a bottle to drink in house!
This isn’t even all of the Whiskey Barrels we received this week! Soon they will all be filled with delicious beer. From imperial stouts, to peach cream ales…we have plans for all of them! If you have an idea shoot us an email to email@example.com
Regards to our Bloody Mary’s…we will be doing them the last weekend of every month. That means this weekend we will have them available! They are the most requested cocktail at the brewery so figured we should have this more regularly!
We like to push the boundaries of beer making. While there are few new ideas in the brewing world, we enjoy trying our hardest to provide something rare, unique, and most importantly…great tasting to our loyal patrons. From Basil infused amber ales, to Circus Peanut Hefeweizens, we like to be different.
This week we are tapping our I.Pepper.A. A pale ale brewed with Equinox hops and Habanero Peppers. Habaneros have probably the best taste profile of any hot pepper out there. However, they are REALLY F’ing hot! To minimize the heat we removed almost all of the seeds, and trimmed the insides so the Scoville Units remain in check. We also used an English Styled Ale yeast which leaves a bit more residual sugar in the beer as opposed to a traditional Pale Ale Yeast. Equinox hops are utilized and they provide a subtle green pepper flavor that pairs well with the Habanero.
The result is a very smooth tasting Pale Ale with a hint of pepper and heat on the back end. You won’t be coughing as you take a sip of this, we actually wanted it to taste good and be drinkable! Draft only…and we will be filling up growlers as long as it’s on tap!
We will also be doing a habanero infused cocktail this week! Should be a bit hotter than the beer!
It’s St Pattys Day this weekend so we got Corned Beef Dinner with potatoes, carrots, and cabbage on Friday. On Saturday we do “leftovers” and make some awesome Rueben sandwiches.
We NEEDED something green this weekend so we did a new cocktail. The Melontini. Fresh honeydew melon, honey, green tea and vodka….it’s pretty damn special if you ask me.
Right now we have our Chamomile Wheat, Double Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout, The Brown Note, and a New one…Citradelic. An clean IPA made entirely with danky Citra hops. Really intense aroma.
One keg will stay at the brewery and be on tap tonight.
We are also going to run back the Tacos this week since they went over so well last week. Shrimp and Beef tacos will be available with Pork Sliders!
That’s correct, not only are we offering beer made on site…we are also offering fresh made Cider as well! Our first batches are all from apples pressed at Soergels Orchard in Wexford.
This weekend we are tapping 3 versions. First up is our Pear/Apple Cider that has sweet pear juice added. Next up is a Sour Cheery Cider – Cherry up front, sour finish on the back end, sweet and sour flavor. Last up is our Traditional Cider, a bit tart, with a crisp finish.
To kick it off we are offering two samplers. One is made of small pours…3 for $5. Or you can sample all 3 in our snifter sized glasses and get an order of our apple salsa to munch on as well for $9! This weekend only!
