Watermelon Martini and S’More beer

Nope, no pumpkin beers yet.  Check back in October!

We are on a mission to make 52 different specialty cocktails for 52 straight weeks.  (We hope people will start noticing and we will become a cocktail bar…In Beaver Falls of all places!)

To keep the trend going we are doing a Watermelon Jalapeno Honey Basil Martini!  Perfect amount of heat balances the honey and the watermelon just tastes like…watermelon.  It is delicious!

We are also fermenting a S’More beer.  Made with Chocolate, Grahm Crackers, Cinnamon Sticks, and yes, toasted Marshmallows.   Should be here in about a week…we won’t rush it though!

Soylent Green and French Teamaker De Garde

This weeks cocktail is Soylent Green.  It is NOT MADE FROM PEOPLE.   It is made from Fresh Pressed Cucumbers, Passion Fruit Nectar, Lime and 1681 Vodka.   Makes a very refreshing martini.

We also decided to combine our two most requested blonde ales into one beer.  The French Biere De Garde is made every some and the yeast imparts some really nice flavor to the beer.  The TeaMaker Blonde Ale is made with fresh picked TeaMaker hops which lend to a subtle green tea flavor.

Those hops found their way into our Biere De Garde for a brand new concoction.  Tapping Thursday Night!

Cocktail Party and YES WE ARE OPEN IN BEAVER!

THIS FRIDAY WE START SELLING PA CRAFT LIQUOR.   Our facebook event page is here. COCKTAIL PARTY

spirits

We have a really nice selection of spirits that will be available.  Some house made stuff we invented, BEER COCKTAILS, and also some classics like the Mojito (Friday ONLY).

Also are tapping a new IPA, “Lets Make Beaver Wet IPA” will be on tap this Friday and it makes a MEAN Beer cocktail.   Gin, OJ, Rosemary, Beer…you’ll thank me later.

SIDE NOTE:  There was some rabble rousing in Beaver this week.   On Tuesday they voted on a resolution that essentially said, we don’t like you or your business and we don’t want your license renewed by the PLCB this year.

THIS DOESN’T STOP US FROM SERVING BEER IN BEAVER.  It is simply something done to destroy business in their town and discriminate which businesses they see “fit” to join there town.   WE ARE OPEN THERE AND SERVING DELICIOUS BEER AND FOOD.  No intentions of leaving either.

We are the small guy from *gasp* Beaver Falls!  This scares uninformed people.  I tried to inform them…they don’t want to listen.   It is a bullying tactic.  I get it, 40 or so people in the town said alcohol would “Create a black cloud over Beaver,” and “Change the town as we know it!”

Really?

Seriously, get over yourselves.  Sewickley ain’t that bad of a town last time I checked…a little more than alcohol sales goes into what makes a community great or not so great.

Fresh Roggenbier and Beer Cocktails coming soon!

This week we are tapping our Roggenbier, easily one of the favorite beers at the brewery.  Think Hefeweizen, but instead of wheat, add rye.  Makes a nice and spicy beverage…and easy to drink at 4.4% ABV.

And we are announcing the date this week…but VERY SOON we will be introducing you to beer cocktails…simply amazing.

We are open…IN BEAVER!

It’s been a year in the making, but we are opening up a new location in Beaver…not Beaver County, but the town of Beaver.  We are partnering with Waffles Inc. to serve beer in their restaurant.

Two immediate questions you may have.

  1.  “Why are you serving beer at a Breakfast place?”  – Good question and the answer is that starting Thursday they will be serving dinner 3 days a week. (Thursday, Friday Saturday, from 4:30 til 9:30.  They are adding a dinner menu and still having most of the breakfast items available.
  2.  “Hey, Beaver is a dry town…how is this possible!?!” – And it still is a dry town.  There was new legislation passed last year that allowed breweries the ability to have locations outside of their own breweries that can serve beer for on site consumption…these licences DO NOT fall under the Wet/Dry restrictions.   So while you can’t open a bar in Beaver, wineries and breweries can have locations in the town.

Waffles Inc. produces some great food and we are REALLY happy to be working with them.  We plan on having four rotating beers on Tap.  The Brown Note and the Chamomile Wheat will be “regulars” with others rotating in from time to time.

If you want to stop in and be one of the cool people to drink and order a beer in Beaver, please follow Waffles on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WafflesINCaffeinated/

Lastly thanks to everyone that has come in over the years to support the brewery.  Without you we never do this.  We don’t open in Beaver Falls and we don’t do something historic in the town of Beaver (It has been before prohibition that someone bought and consumed a Drink in Beaver so yes…it is historic.)

Been a long journey and we plan on adding more locations and other new and exciting stuff in Beaver Falls before the end of the year as well!

Fresh Nelson Sauvin and Habanero Mead!

I always say the best pales and IPA’s are served fresh.  Well, Tuesday we are kegging the Nelson Sauvin and Thursday we are serving it.

My recommendation…try the regular Nelson First.  Then move to the Barrel Aged Nelson Sauvin second…amazing the difference some barrel aging does!

Plus we have a NEW mead from Laurel Highlands Meadery…and it’s hot…literally!  Aged mead on Habanero peppers for a nice (and not insane) heat.

Beer Cocktails and More!

A piece of the latest legislation from the PA House is taking effect in August and will be very nice for us!  Starting in Early August we will be able to sell distilled spirits that have been made in PA!

We will have some Wigle Whiskey, Maggie’s Farm Rum, CJ Spirits, Bluecoat, and a host of other drinks available.  Right now we are working on a cocktail menu that will include at least 3 beer cocktails that you’ll be able to order year round at the bar.

There will be a mini “party” for the release of these so stay tuned!

Dr. Rudi Pale Ale

This Friday we tap a brand new pale ale with a Hop that we have never used…Dr. Rudi Hops from New Zealand.

They pack a lot of different flavors in one variety.  Piney, Herbal, Grassy, and a hint of Citrus fruit all in one hop.   Simcoe hops are similar, but they are absolutely different.  We dry hopped it with some Simcoe to add some piney aroma.

On tap this Friday!

Maple Porter on Tap and News on HB 1690

First off, we have a really delicious Maple Porter on tap right now.  VERY LIMITED.

It is made with a special maple syrup that was cooked over an open fire (went old school here.)  You will find there is a prevalent smokey flavor and aroma on the beer…and it is from the maple!  Also makes one hell of a mix with our Blueberry Saison….tastes like pancakes!

Also voting on HB 1690 is taking place soon and we are excited about some of the changes.  One, we can potentially have a full bar!  There is a provision in there that will allow brewpubs to sell PA distilled spirts…can you say Beer Cocktails!   Hopefully this will go into effect by the end of the year.

Lawnmower Pale Ale on tap Friday

Sometimes you want a punch you in the face hoppy and over the top beer.  Sometimes you are sweating your ass off and just want a beer to quench your thirst and cool you off…We are tapping the latter this Friday.

Our Lawnmower Pale Ale is nice and citrusy.  None of the piney, herbal, or cattyness you get from some Pales.  This is made with all Mandarina Bavaria hops from Germany.  They have a distinct tangerine type flavor and aroma.  Just the right amount of bitterness….

Very easy drinker at 4.6% ABV.
