WienerFest Continues with more German Beer!

This Friday we tap our third German Beer…the MPA or Munich Pale Ale.  We use Pilsner Malt as the base, add some Munich Malt for color and a touch of Rye for spiciness.  Then we use all German Hops.  Magnum, Merkur, and Hallertauer.   Makes for a very earthy Pale Ale.

We also have our Roggenbier and Sticke Alt beer on tap as well!

And to top it off…WIENERS!  We cook them in our MPA and they are here all weekend, 3 for $5.

Our Cocktail of the week is a new concoction.  We pureed Peaches and Cut up a bunch of Ginger and cooked it WAY down so it would caramelize.   You get a sugary spicy beverage that is very nice with some Vodka in it.   I call it “Peach Me, I’m Dreaming”.

First Collaboration Beer in time for Oktoberfest!

Cody from Crooked Tongue Brewing LLC and I were talking a few months ago about a collaboration beer and this Friday we are tapping it!

He came up with the idea to brew a “Sticke Alt”. A German Style “secret” recipe Altbier. Slightly higher in alcohol, darker, and hoppier than a typical Altbier.

Since we wanted to keep with the theme of secrecy (Sticke is German for Secret), we shared with each other an idea of what we were going to brew and we also used the same yeast. Everything else was up to the brewer.

This week marks the beginning of Oktoberfest so the timing couldn’t have been better. Stop into either our Brewery or Crooked Tongue to try both! If you take a selfie pic at Crooked Tongue and bring it into us we will give you $2 off your growler fill!cody

New Beer in Beaver and this week’s cocktail

We are tapping the S’More Is Better stout in Beaver on Friday as well as a new beer just for our Beaver Drinkers…Failed Resolution IPA is a tribute to the wasted vote by council that essentially told us to “get off my lawn!”

As a short follow-up to the that vote…we actually got a letter from the Pennsylvania LCB that said they got a copy of the resolution and that the council of Beaver has no say in the approval or denial of our location in Beaver…so our idea that their actions were completely out of bounds and an utter waste of time have been confirmed…back to beer.  We are over it.

The S’More contains real chocolate, cinnamon, graham crackers, and marshmallows.  Really good with chicken and waffles.

The Failed Resolution IPA is made with Comet Hops that pack a funky/crazy hop flavor.  Really unique.

Our Cocktail of the week is Pearly Ginger.  Made with Three Bitches Vodka, Pear Nectar, Fresh Ginger, and a hint of Nutmeg.

S’more is better tapping Friday + Cocktail

We are trying something a bit off the rails this weekend…a S’more beer.  It’s not the first one ever created but we liked the idea and gave it a whirl.

Added real chocolate, graham crackers, a hint of cinnamon, and marshmallows to the mash.   This is a BEER first, not a sweet overly spiced beer.   A few handfuls of smoked malt were added to give it a campfire smell/taste.

We are also doing a S’More Cocktail which to be honest, tastes like a milkshake.   Very  rich.   Chocolate Milk, Vanilla Milk, Chocolate syrup, creamed boubon, vodka, and a graham cracker rimmer with a toasted marshmallow tops it off.

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.
