We went for a very strong Ginger Ale this time around. A hint of mint was added but this is a dry soda with 2 pounds of ginger included. We also tried our hand at a creamy orange soda…great for floats!
Lastly, our Double I.Porter.A is on tap this weekend. It is the regular I.Porter.A recipe, but we double the roasted malts, and add a touch more hops. This one packs some extreme flavor! Not that much higher in alcohol as this comes in right around 6% ABV.
We have a few new beers that will debut in the upcoming weeks. First will be our Pear Saison. As soon as either the Antwerp Ale or the Oolong Ale (both are very low) kick we will be tapping our latest concoction.
The beer is a farmhouse styled beer, nice and clovey with a bone dry finish. While we did use pear nectar (this always sounds better than “juice”) in the beer don’t expect a punch you in the face Pear flavor. Pear is a delicate flavor, not all that strong. Since we don’t use those fake flavorings we have to rely on the real deal fruit to add the flavor. We also used a brand new hop Jarrylo to the batch. These hops impart a nice fruity pear-like flavor but still add a nice clean bitterness.
The Double I.Porter.A will be on after that…it is the same recipe as our regular I.Porter.A but we double the amount of roasted malts, and add a hint of Citra hops (usually just Columbus and Cascade in there) to the mix. It comes across more “stoutish” than our regular I.Porter.A. If not this week it will absolutely be tapped next weekend.
We are tapping our Australian inspired Golden Shower this weekend at the brewery. Made with a seasonal Australian styled ale yeast this beer is very clean, a bit malty, slightly bready, and comes in at a highly sessionable 3.9% ABV.
Figured we would change up the name a bit from our initial Australian name…this just fits.
Also tapping The Ryeing Game – A full bodied Pale Ale with lots of Rye malts. Hopped with Columbus and Summit.
Coming up next weekend (and maybe as early as this Saturday), we will be tapping 3 new beers.
1. Vanilla Bean Caramel Cream Ale – We bust this one out each Spring and again in the fall. Very popular Cream ale made with 86 Vanilla Beans…yes, I counted.
2. The Ryeing Game – Haven’t made this one since 2012…it is a Rye forward beer with plenty of Summit and Columbus hops. In your face flavor.
3. Down Under Dirty Blonde – Made with a seasonal Australian yeast, this lowly hopped beer is clean and refreshing with a slight bready flavor malty flavor and aroma.
While Pop / Soda sales are not the driving force behind the Beaver Brewing Company we are always looking to offer something unique. I mean our tagline is “The Home of Being Different.” so we better offer some unique soda as well. Starting in April we will be serving up some fresh pop at the brewery. These will be served on draft.
While we will have some staples like Root Beer and Orange Pop, we plan on offering fresh made pop made with REAL ingredients…not flavoring. Look for an announcement on our first offerings sometime next week!
That seems to be the story with our Chamomile Wheat. Whenever it is on tap it is our slowest moving “regular” beer. Whenever we don’t have it, everyone wants it.
Well starting 3/26 it will be back on tap! Fresh batch, delicious as ever.
It’s been over two years since the last time we bottled a beer and we figured there is no better beer to get back into bottling than the Gose. We have a bit on tap, but the other 94 bottles worth of the beer are on sale this weekend. They are in 22 ounce bombers.
We also have Reaching the Summit back on tap as well. This is probably the second most requested beer we get from regulars when it isn’t on tap. A traditional British Pale Ale made exclusively with Summit hops.
Chamomile Wheat will also be back once something kicks!
Saying our Wild Ales are my least favorite is probably the nicest thing I will say about them. I never liked wild beers because they are exactly what happens when beer goes bad. It gets sour and tart.
While I hate this, others love it.
And our WILD ALE IS TRULY WILD. We let the bacteria and wild yeast in the air ferment this bad boy for a true Beaver Falls flavor.
If sours are your thing, make a trip to the brewery this weekend. It rarely stays on tap for more than 5 days in total.
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!
- “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!
