Two new beers on Tap this weekend…

Thursday night we are tapping our Gose.  This is a style of beer that is very sour and also salty.  Yes…it is supposed to taste like that.  Most of the beer found its way into bottles, however we have a few kegs available now.  The bottles should be ready by the end of March.  There will be 90 of the bottles for sale.

Second up is our Mosaic and Citra hopped IPA I like to call “Pace Yourself”.  Doesn’t seem all that boozy but it does clock in at 7.6% ABV.  Nice fruity hoppyness.

Next week we will have MORE new beer as well!

Jarryol Hops

- “Banana, Pear, Orange and Spicy” 

That’s the description for this new hop…and we are lucky enough to grab a few to brew with!  This is one of those ones you probably won’t find anywhere else locally let alone the state so stay tuned…we should be tapping a single hopped Jarryol Pale Ale some time this Spring!

Bottles are coming back in a big way…

It has been over three years since we bottled a beer.  We are changing that in 2015.  In March (hopefully), our first bottled beer will be released.   It will be a Gose (pronounced ‘Goes-Uh’).  It is a sour beer (meaning it is brewed with bacteria to create sourness) that has salt added.  Truly unique and twisted.

We should have about 150-200 bottles but that is it.  When they are gone, they are gone.

This however will not be the only bottled beer of 2015.  We hope to do several other sour beers this Spring and Summer.  We will also keep back a few bottles from each batch to do a 12 pack case of weird sour beers in the fall.

Check back in Mid-March to see where our progress is and to reserve your bottle!

Caramel Banana Winter Wheat takes over this Thursday!

I couldn’t decide between Winter Wheat or Caramel Banana Wheat so damnit anyway I am going to call it both.

A very cloudy dark wheat beer made with copious amounts of Caramel malt for a sweet malty backbone and we upped the temperature on our Hefeweizen yeast to release some super banana and clove aromas to the beer.   I like it and I think you will too.  It is highly sessionable at 4.4% ABV.

On tap Thursday with another new arrival…Arsenal Cider Ginger Cider!  Good stuff, this one seems significantly more ginger flavored than  I remember.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout Floats on Tap for Valentines Day

It was a hit last year so we are bringing back the Dark Peanut Butter Stout with Ice Cream!  You may ask yourself, Beer and Ice Cream?  Do those go together?  Let me help, yes.  Yes they do.

My personal favorite combo is Banana Ice Cream but we will have two other surprise flavors for your choosing.   Available this weekend only!

Harmonist Schwarzbier is back!

We brewed a beer based off of the Harmonists from Old Economy Village earlier this winter and were surprised at how big of a hit it was.  So when something is popular, we bring it back….

This Friday we again are tapping the Harmonist.  It is a Black beer, not hoppy, a tough sweet, somewhat of a lager taste to it.  Also low alcohol comparative to other craft beers at 4.2% ABV.

If you are interested in learning more about the beer, Bob Batz from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette wrote a great article about it in December.

DOUBLE Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout, Pineapple Salsa and Antwerp Ale

Plenty of new items on the menu this weekend.

First up is our Antwerp Ale…very unique.  Made with a rare Belgian yeast that gives the beer lager like properties.  Strong with a hint of fruitiness from the Galaxy hops we used.  Nice cold weather beer.

Second, our DOUBLE Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout will be on tap this Saturday…we added more PB, more chocolate, and a bit more malts!  A bit sweeter than our regular version.

Lastly we are doing some pineapple Salsa.  Really good stuff.  Not too hot…BUT IT CAN BE!  We are doing a hot salsa challenge.  If you want a $1 off your bill we will add 1 pepper (Habanero or New Jersey Serrano), 2 peppers is $3 off…3 peppers you get a free beer, a picture of yourself posted on our facebook page, and title of Beaver Falls craziest person…no small feat.   But if you just want the regular salsa, its pretty damn good.

A Nice Tall Glass of Shut The Hell Up + Experimental Ale

Yes…that is the name of our most recent beer.

Why?  Because people that are new to the place always ask for “Your House IPA”.  We never have one, but on occasion we do make the Hoppy Beer or two.

This one is a Rye’d up IPA made with Simcoe Hops for bittering (Piney aroma and taste) and Citra Hops were added late to the boil.   The hops give way to a nice and spicy malt flavor.   On tap last week and going quickly!

We are also working with a hard to find seasonal yeast (Antwerp Ale) from White Labs.  It is a hybrid kinda lagery, kinda Belgian, kinda clean, yeast.  Have NO IDEA how this will develop, but it will be on tap 1/29.

Oolong Ale Back on Tap + More Cider!

We are bringing back the most requested beer from our Tea Series this summer…the Monkey Picked Oolong Ale.  This is the highest quality tea and we add it to a malty almost Irish Red like beer.  Lightly hopped for a unique beer experience.

On Saturday we will be tapping our Snowbound Cinnamon Cider from Arsenal Cider in Pittsburgh.  Nice winter cider that is packed with Cinnamon flavor…just tastes like winter in a glass.

Plus we will have a very cool salsa on the menu…never before released at the brewery!  Something unique that we are looking for feedback on…
