WienerFest 2015!

It’s September so we now give you permission to start drinking Oktoberfest Styled beers!

This Thursday we are tapping our GPA (German Pale Ale). It is what we like to call our “Hoppy Oktoberfest”. Tons of Pilsner and Munich Malts with nothing but earthy Merkur and Magnum hops from Germany.

Tp celebrate the start of the “fall beer season”, we are also having wieners cooked in sauerkraut and our German Pale Ale! $1.25 a piece or 3 for $3. We also have some GOOD mustard for you to lube up with.

So stop in this weekend for a wiener and a beer!

Once in a lifetime beer opportunity….this weekend…

It won’t change your life, but it doesn’t happen every day…or ever.

We have a beer totally made with Teamaker hops on tap.  That isn’t rare, it is non-existent.  I have found two…yes TWO other beers on the planet that have used these.

Here is a brief description of the hop from Great Lakes Hops.

A unique hybrid high aroma hop also used in making  antimicrobial organic herbal teas and compounds.  Teamaker’s alpha and beta levels are reversed.  Has antibiotic properties and has potential use as a replacement for antibiotics in animal husbandry.  Teamaker adds flavor without additional bitterness.  The high beta acids inhibit bacterial growth and can replace formalin in sugar processing. Teamaker is used as a “late hopping” aroma hop to add flavor where additional bittering is not desired.  Also makes a good flavored ice tea.” 

Stop in, grab a pint…you won’t have this chance anywhere else!

2 New Beers on Tap this weekend!

First up on Friday we will be tapping last summers hit, the Slutty Blonde.  Fresh hopped with TeaMaker hops directly from my backyard.  It is a very easy drinking beer with some Pilsner like tastes from the malt but an otherwise clean profile.

Our second will be tapped on Saturday.  The Simcoe Rosemary Pale Ale.  Brewed with fresh rosemary and Simcoe hops which produce a piney aroma and taste that pairs perfectly with one of my favorite herbs.

We also have a limited amount of the Simcoe Rosemary in Bottles as well.

New Hop varieties will soon be in your beers

One of the things that makes the Brewery unique is our willingness to experiment with brand new hops.  Jarrylo, Huell Melon, Mandarina Bavaria, Mosaic…these are just a few of the new hops out on the market that we have infused into our beers.

This fall we plan on using a few more…

1. Equinox (Formerly hbc 366) – Described as citrusy, green pepper, and papaya?!?!  Also described as very complex and “alot going on inside”.  It is a very high alpha acid hop so we will be using this in a single hopped IPA down the line.

2. German Merkur and Magnum  – Not new by any means, however you almost NEVER see these used in American beers.  We do our GPA or German Pale Ale with them for a super earthy Oktoberfest styled pale ale.

3.  Zythos  – A proprietary hop blend that produces a Pineapple and Pine aroma and taste.   Still debating what we are going to use these in, either an IPA or a Saison.

If you ever want to know what type of hops we are using feel free to ask, there aren’t any secrets to our beer…we want you to enjoy it!

Blueberry Ale On Tap Thursday!

This summer we wanted to do something a little bit different for the tap lineup…introducing our Blueberry Ale!  Crisp, Clean, and made with locally picked blueberries!

We also are doing a “Black and Blueberry” which is a version of our black and tan.  You can mix our I.Porter.A with our Blueberry Ale for a Blueberry Porter…surprisingly refreshing!

Craft Soda back on tap this weekend!

You’d be surprised how many people have said “I CAN’T GET A ROOT BEER FLOAT!?!”, the last few weeks.

Well, this Friday we should have that problem fixed.   We are going to have the Root Beer back, and we also welcome back our Ginger Pear Soda.  Made with ALOT of fresh ginger and Pear Nectar…lightly sweetened with Coconut Sugar.

Tribute to Low ABV beers is this weekend!

Sure, that 12% ABV Russian Imperial Stout is pretty good…however you lost your pants and called your wife your girlfriends name the last time you had drank it.

At the brewery we like to celebrate all beer.  This weekend we pay homage to the red-headed step child of craft beer…the low alcohol beer.

Three of our beer come in around 4% ABV or lower.

Our French Biere De Garde is REALLY clean…almost pilsner like beer.  I like to describe it as very “beer like”.  Clean, not malty, not hoppy, a bit floral, but very beer.  Easiest drinker out there.

The Brown Note is a very flavorful and malty beer and I always challenge people to drink a brown ale with more flavor than this one that has an ABV under 4%.

And this Friday we will be tapping our 70 Schilling Scottish Ale.  A nice toasty smooth drinking beer.  Strong malt forward beer that accentuates the malt flavor and has a crisp hop finish.

Get a “mini” three beer sampler of all them for just $4 starting Friday!

Wild Ale and Kvass fans…you time has arrived…

The most requested beer I get at the brewery is our Wild Ales.  A “Wild Ale” is brewed with Wild Yeast…meaning whatever is floating in the air ferments your beer.   This creates a very tart/sour beer.

Our base was a Lavender Kvass made with Russian Black Bread.

We made a VERY small batch of this so get it this weekend…we can’t promise it will be around longer than that.

Brown Note starts pouring Thursday 7/9/15

One of my personal favorite beers at the brewery will be pouring this weekend.  The Brown Note is an English Brown made with a unique seasonal malt which adds an incredibly unique “Brown” flavor to the beer.

I always describe it as “picture a macro brewed brown ale…now add flavor…and reduce the ABV.”   The Brown Note comes in only at 3.8% ABV and I challenge you to find a maltier flavored beer at that same ABV.
