Got alot of requests to have this in time for Christmas Growler fills this year so we will oblige!
If you missed it last year we put ACTUAL PEANUT BUTTER AND DARK CHOCOLATE into this beer! It’s crazy to imagine but there are MANY larger breweries putting out PB and Chocolate beers that add exactly ZERO of each ingredient…they use “Flavoring”…what the hell is that? I don’t know what “flavoring” consists of so I stick to the REAL stuff.
On tap Thursday.
It was only on tap for two weeks but we will have a MINIMAL AMOUNT of the Harmonist Schwarzbier on tap this weekend. We are using most of our reserves at the Annual Christmas Dinner this Wednesday at Old Economy Village but have a tiny amount left. We are donating the beer to the museum for the dinner and hope the patrons enjoy it there as mush as it was enjoyed at the brewery!
If you want to try it we are tapping the beer on Thursday Evening.
We are also tapping an 80 Schilling Scottish Ale this weekend as well. It is a bit higher in alcohol than some Scottish beers (ours is about 4.8% ABV). It is a very clean easy drinking ale. Well balanced.
We just tapped some fresh kvass and it will be on tap starting Thursday night…its the last batch before the spring comes so if you want to give it a try now is your chance! Very traditional version, rye bread, lemons, raisins…that’s it.
We also added a new pinball machine, Playboy 35th anniversary!
Lastly we have Caviar…Cowboy Caviar on the menu this weekend! Great combo of beans, cilantro, peppers, and other good stuff. Maybe the healthiest item we have served at the brewery. Comes with chips and is only $4.50 a serving.
As you know we do ONE and ONLY ONE batch of our Pecan Pie Nut Brown a year. It is made with Real Pecans, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, and a hint of nutmeg all wrapped around a malt forward brown ale.
We release it on Thanksgiving Eve and when it is gone….it is gone! We are open our normal hours 4-10pm.
Adding to the excitement is our Harmonist Schwarzbier. Old Economy Village in Ambridge unearthed an original beer recipe from the Harmonist Head brewer and commissioned us to make the beer for their annual Christmas Dinner. We tapped it last Saturday for a test run and we are already halfway through it. If you want to try an old age beer it won’t be on tap for long!
Our favorite Western Pennsylvania Meadery is visiting this weekend for a tasting of their Mead! They will be at the brewery Saturday (11/22) from 6-8 pm. We will also be stocked with several of their new meads (including Bochet!) for the winter months. Not only will they be serving, but you will also be able to buy bottles directly from them.
There are only four places that carry their stuff in Western PA and luckily, we are one of them. Don’t miss it!
If you want to learn more about them check out their website. Laurel Highlands Meadery
To top it off, all of our Pinball Machines will be set to free play! Grab a beer, a mead, and flip ’til your fingers fall off! Check in on our event page on Facebook!
This weekend (Friday 11/14) we will be tapping a brewery favorite, Reaching The Summit.
The beer is an English Styled Pale Ale single hopped with only Summit Hops. The hops themselves pack a earthy strong bitterness sometimes resembling garlic. We use an English Yeast that doesn’t eat all of the sugars and leaves some sweetness to combat the hops. You’re left with a very clean and well balanced pale ale.
We are also experimenting with a new appetizer recipe. We will have 3 Olive Tapenade Recipes served with Crostini Bread and Blue Cheese. It is excellent paired with the Summit.
Lastly, our Busta Nutmeg Pumpkin Saison will be kicked this weekend…we are on our last keg and only doing drafts and meowlers until it runs out.
We now have hats at the brewery! We also have some new XXL and XXXL Shirts in stock as well.
Our latest beer is the Dumb Blonde. An American Blonde Ale brewed with Willamette hops that provide a little bit of a floral aroma and flavor. Right now this is the “tan” part of our black and tan.
Brewery favorite “Reaching The Summit” is in fermenters as you read this and should be on tap within the next two weeks.
Once a year we open to the public on a Wednesday…that day now about a month away so please mark your calendar.
The most popular beer at the brewery is without a doubt, our Pecan Pie Nut Brown Ale. It is brewed with 10 pounds of REAL PECANS, brown sugar, cinnamon, and rich flavored barley. Closest thing to a pecan pie in a glass you will find.
We only brew ONE BATCH OF THIS A YEAR….when it is gone IT IS GONE. So I can’t guarantee I will have it any other day other than Thanksgiving Eve.
It is also a pretty fun day. We will have some Pecan themed treats and pre-black Friday shopping on all of our brewery swag as well.
By now you know what a growler is. We have two varieties in Stainless Steel and the are 64 and 32 ounces respectfully…We have seen over the past few months the rise of the “Meowler”.
A Meowler is a 16 ounce mason jar for when you want one more beer for at home or want to share something you enjoyed at the brewery today with a friend you will see tomorrow.
You can bring in your own “Meowler” with a lid (we will put the proper labeling on it to keep it legal), or you can purchase one from us for $2.00 plus the cost of a glass of beer.
We are also bringing back one of my top five beers to the taplist this weekend….The Brown Note. It is a very rich and “brown” tasting English styled brown ale with an American twist on it. I challenge you to find a more malt forward beer at under 4.5% ABV. Easy to drink and full of flavor.
Once a year we make a mead/beer style that has been around for thousands of years…the Braggot. We use over 20 pounds of local honey from Daugherty Township in this beer. We also add Mosaic hops which help offset the sweetness from the honey.
Truly unique and only available in the fall at the brewery.
