Corona Extra voluntary recall just announced on specific bottles

BeerPulse - Fri, 08/15/2014 - 19:44

News Wire: 

(Chicago, IL) – Constellation Brands Beer Division today announced a voluntary recall of select packages in the U.S. containing 12-ounce clear glass bottles of its Corona Extra beer that may contain small particles of glass. The voluntary recall covers 12-ounce clear bottles in select six-pack, 12-pack and 18-pack packages containing bottles with the production codes listed below.

This recall comes after routine inspections in the company’s quality control laboratory detected defects in certain bottles that could cause small particles of glass to break off and fall into the bottle. The affected bottles came from one of four glass plants run by a third party manufacturer, which supplies the company the bottles. While the company believes that less than 1 percent of the bottles produced from the plant may be affected, it is recalling select packages that may contain defective bottles to ensure the safety of consumers.

To date the company has received no reports of injuries resulting from the affected bottles.

The following products are not being recalled:

Corona Extra cans
Corona Extra 24-pack loose bottles
Corona Extra 24 oz. bottle
Corona Extra draft beer
Corona Light bottles
Corona Light cans
Corona Light draft beer
Corona Familiar
Coronitas

“We are troubled by this development and are working proactively with our distributors, retailers and consumers to resolve this situation as quickly as possible,” said Bill Hackett, President of Constellation Brands Beer Division. “Throughout its history, Corona Extra is a brand that has been synonymous with quality, consistency and refreshment. Our entire organization, including our brewers, our production team, and all our employees across our system, is absolutely committed to doing everything possible to complete this recall quickly, and ensure the safety of our consumers and integrity of our product.”

Upon discovering the issue, Constellation took prompt action to identify and secure potentially affected product and will work closely with distributors and retailers to minimize the impact on consumers. The company is diligently working to recover potentially affected product that is in retail stores and may have reached consumers.

Consumers who have bottles marked with the production codes below can visit http://www.coronausa.com/recall or call 1-866-204-9407 for instructions on reimbursement.

Ninkasi Venn, Oktoberfest arrive in September

BeerPulse - Fri, 08/15/2014 - 18:50

News Wire: 

(Eugene, OR) – With the approach of the harvest and cooler fall weather, Ninkasi Brewing Company announces two lagers that are rooted in European tradition and celebrate the incredible ingredients of the Pacific Northwest. Oktoberfest, the newest addition to Ninkasi’s Seasonal Release Series, and Venn, the third Prismatic Lager Series release of the year, capture all that the region has to offer: some of the purest water in the Continental United States and Northwest-grown hops.

Available September through October, Oktoberfest is a Festbier lager crafted to honor the region’s great bounty. “Festbier is a unique Bavarian lager that’s made around the harvest time, similar to an Oktoberfest, but it has what German brewers consider to have a more hoppy presence,” explains Jamie Floyd, founding brewer and co-founder of Ninkasi. “Oktoberfest has a darker hue than most lagers and a toasty malt flavor with a sweet impression up front paired with an earthy and grassy hop flavor.” Brewed with hops grown in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, these hops were selected to impart the earthy, grassy flavor of traditional German hops.

Venn, available September through December, is a balanced Dortmund-style lager providing a deliciously easy drinking option for the crisper months ahead. “The most important characteristic of this style is its balance,” says Floyd. “All ingredients must be in perfect harmony, giving the beer a Noble hop bitterness with a rounded, sweet malt flavor.”

Both beers will be available throughout Ninkasi’s distribution footprint: Oregon; Washington; Idaho; Montana; California; Alaska; Nevada; and Vancouver, British Columbia.

Oktoberfest Stats
Style: Festbier Lager
Series: Seasonal Release Series
Available: Sept.-Oct. 2014
ABV: 5.9
IBU: 25
Starting Gravity: 1058

URL: http://www.ninkasibrewing.com/oktoberfest

Description: To celebrate the harvest, we decided to brew a beer dedicated to the tradition of Oktoberfest. Using Pilsner malt and hops grown in the Northwest, this beer is our way of toasting to the great bounty that our area brings us. Cheers!

Tasting Notes: Our Oktoberfest has a slightly higher ABV than most Bavarian-style lagers, followed by a more prolific aromatic hop profile. With a deep copper color, this lager has a toasty malt flavor and a dry finish with earthy, grassy hop notes.

Food Pairings: Chicken, Duck, Rabbit, Pork, Potatoes, Spaetzle, Salads, Caramel Sweets and Cookies

Venn Stats
Style: Dortmund-Style Lager
Series: Prismatic Lager Series
Available: Sept.-Dec. 2014

URL: http://www.ninkasibrewing.com/venn

Description: Venn is the definition of balance, where American craft meets European tradition. First brewed in 19th century Dortmund, Germany, the hallmark of the style is its sophisticated symmetry. Brilliantly marrying a perceptible Noble Hop bitterness with a rounded, sweet malt flavor, Venn is golden in color, clean and harmonious.
Tasting Notes: The hallmark of this Dortmund-style lager is the balance between perceptible Noble Hop bitterness and rounded malt flavor; making it deliciously easy to drink.

Food Pairings: Sausages, Spaetzles, Trout, Fondue, Potato Salad

About Ninkasi Brewing Company
Founded in 2006 by Jamie Floyd and Nikos Ridge, Ninkasi Brewing Company continues to grow from its first batch of Total Domination IPA, to two brewhouses, a 55-barrel and a 90-barrel brewhouse, located in Eugene, Ore.

Redhook Out of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter rolls out nationwide

BeerPulse - Fri, 08/15/2014 - 18:20

News Wire: 

(Seattle, WA) – Redhook Brewery announced today that its 2014 “Out of Your Gourd” Pumpkin Porter has begun rolling out nationally and will remain on shelves through October.

Out of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter’s dark, chestnut brown color comes from a mix of pureed pumpkin enhanced by cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger in the whirlpool and maple syrup added during fermentation. Northern Brewer hops give this Pumpkin Porter a lightly-hopped, full-bodied, rich and roasty character – perfect as fall approaches and afternoons at the beach give way to football season Saturdays and Sundays.

“Pumpkin Porter is one of our best-selling seasonals,” said Karmen Olson, Redhook Brand Manager. “Because of its pre-fall release, we’re always pleasantly surprised by how well it does before the season of all things pumpkin begins. We’re really excited that the 2014 edition will be on shelves through Halloween.”

Redhook’s Out of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter will be available in 6 and 12- packs in 12 oz. bottles and individual 22 oz. bottles. Draught beer will be poured with a cleaver-shaped tap handle as a nod to pumpkin carving. ABV 5.8%; IBU 20.

About Redhook
Redhook was born out of the energy and spirit of the early 80s in the heart of Seattle. While the term didn’t exist at the time, Redhook became one of America’s first “craft” breweries. From a modest start in a former transmission shop in the Seattle neighborhood of Ballard, to the current breweries in Woodinville, Wash., and Portsmouth, NH, Redhook has become one of America’s most recognized craft breweries. While Redhook has “grown up” over the past 30 years, one thing has never changed—Redhook is still brewing great beers like ESB, Long Hammer IPA and Audible Ale. Most importantly, Redhook has fun doing it. Redhook beers are available on draught and in bottles around the country. For more information, visit www.redhook.com.

New Belgium Tour de Fall now available across its U.S. markets

BeerPulse - Fri, 08/15/2014 - 17:52

News Wire: 

This American Pale Ale features Cascade and Amarillo hops and is available now through October

(Ft. Collins, CO) – New Belgium Brewing’s new fall seasonal celebrates Tour de Fat, the brewery’s traveling festival of bikes, beer and bemusement. As the ten-city tour begins the second half of the 2014 schedule this American-style Pale Ale will also hit the road and be available in New Belgium markets across the country through October. At six percent ABV and 38 IBUs, this beer is a go-to for the fall. Pale malt, chocolate rye and caramel add a slight bitter-sweet flavor and a red hue to the pour. Hops dominate its aroma with pine, floral, tangerine, lemon rind and tropical fruit notes.

“This well-balanced, crisp beer is perfect for fall,” said New Belgium Assistant Brewmaster, Grady Hull. “It’s not spiced like a lot of other fall beers, instead, Tour de Fall is dry-hopped with two different hop varieties, making it refreshing, light and easy to drink.”

Tour de Fall is available in 12 oz. bottles and on draft. Pricing varies by location.

In addition to Tour de Fall, this fall New Belgium brings back Saison Harvest Ale in the new Fall Folly Packs. In the Can Folly Packs 1554 Black Lager, is joining the mix – its can debut. Last year’s Pumpkick Pumpkin Ale will also be available in limited release.

(Ft. Collins, CO) – New Belgium Brewing’s new fall seasonal celebrates Tour de Fat, the brewery’s traveling festival of bikes, beer and bemusement. As the ten-city tour begins the second half of the 2014 schedule this American-style Pale Ale will also hit the road and be available in New Belgium markets across the country through October. At six percent ABV and 38 IBUs, this beer is a go-to for the fall. Pale malt, chocolate rye and caramel add a slight bitter-sweet flavor and a red hue to the pour. Hops dominate its aroma with pine, floral, tangerine, lemon rind and tropical fruit notes.

“This well-balanced, crisp beer is perfect for fall,” said New Belgium Assistant Brewmaster, Grady Hull. “It’s not spiced like a lot of other fall beers, instead, Tour de Fall is dry-hopped with two different hop varieties, making it refreshing, light and easy to drink.”

Tour de Fall is available in 12 oz. bottles and on draft. Pricing varies by location.

In addition to Tour de Fall, this fall New Belgium brings back Saison Harvest Ale in the new Fall Folly Packs. In the Can Folly Packs 1554 Black Lager, is joining the mix – its can debut. Last year’s Pumpkick Pumpkin Ale will also be available in limited release.

Surly WET goes on hiatus for a while

BeerNews.org - Fri, 08/15/2014 - 17:05

(Brooklyn Center, MN) – Surly Brewing Co. announced on Friday that it will not produce Surly WET this year. More from Facebook

Surly Nation, we need to talk about Surly WET. Sorry, but we’re not going to make it this year. We know that sucks, but that doesn’t mean we love WET, or you, any less. We just don’t have the space in the brewery/tanks/brewing schedule to make it this year. But hey, cheer up!

We’ve got some special beers coming out to get excited for, including the beer we made for the Chipotle Cultivate Festival, barrel-aged bottles of Darkness, and some other stuff we can’t talk about just yet (feel free to speculate wildly).

Ballantine India Pale Ale set for U.S. re-launch in September starting in Northeast

BeerPulse - Fri, 08/15/2014 - 16:28

News Wire: 

(Los Angeles, CA) – Pabst Brewing Company, the largest American-owned brewery with over 30 beers in its portfolio, today announced the re-launch of Ballantine India Pale Ale, one of the oldest and most iconic craft beers in the country. The beer will be available beginning in September in major Northeast markets.

First brewed in 1878 by P. Ballantine & Sons Brewing Company in Newark, NJ, Ballantine India Pale Ale was the only American-made beer that successfully continued the tradition of the 19th century IPAs once Prohibition ended. This was due in large part to the brewery’s steadfast commitment to “Purity, Body, and Flavor”— as exemplified by the three interlocking Borromean rings found on every bottle.

Ballantine’s brewers were meticulous about ensuring that the beer’s gravity, alcohol content, IBUs, and hopping rates remained consistent well into the mid-20th century. Another unique method that characterized Ballantine India Pale Ale was a hopping process in which the distilled oils from a hop-and-water mixture were added to the brew, giving the beer an intense hoppy flavor that was quite distinct from its competition. P. Ballantine & Sons was also rumored to have matured the India Pale Ale in huge wooden vats for up to a year in order to help develop the ale’s original flavor.

In order to replicate the original recipe as closely as possible, Pabst Master Brewer Gregory Deuhs reverse-engineered the beer, ensuring the robust heritage and quality of the 136-year-old brew was properly reflected in the 21st century version.

“I began this project with a simple question: How would Peter Ballantine make his beer today?” said Master Brewer Deuhs, adding, “There wasn’t a ‘secret formula’ in anyone’s basement we could copy, so I conducted extensive research looking for any and all mentions of Ballantine India Pale Ale, from the ale’s processing parameters, aroma and color, alcohol and bitterness specifications. Many brewers and craft beer drinkers would be impressed that the Ballantine India Pale Ale of the 1950s and ‘60s would rival any craft IPA brewed today.”

Over the course of two years and over two dozen iterations of five-gallon batches handmade at his home near Milwaukee, WI, Deuhs finally struck gold.

“Unlike recreating a lost brew from long ago, I had the advantage of actually being able to speak with people who drank Ballantine back in the day,” continued Deuhs. “Their feedback was crucial to ensuring that the hoppy, complex flavor that was revered for over a hundred years was front and center in my recipe.”

Ballantine IPA will be sold in bottled six-packs and limited-edition 750 ml bottles in major markets across the Northeast, including New York, New Jersey, Boston, Portland, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C. and Pittsburgh.

Ballantine background
· Dry hopping and the addition of hop oil has long been credited as the key to the beer’s unique profile. In addition, a proprietary brewing method ensures that every drop of Ballantine India Pale Ale comes in contact with American Oak, effectively capturing the robust flavor and heritage of the brand. With the reintroduction, an entirely new generation of craft beer enthusiasts will experience what made America’s Original IPA so exceptional.
· In the 1950s, Ballantine was the third largest brewery in the country, going on to become the primary broadcast sponsor for the New York Yankees. Despite stiff competition, the IPA continued to flourish as its dry hopping process gave the beer an intense, distinct hop presence, unlike anything else available in the United States at that time.
· In the 1970s, taste preferences changed and American lagers edged out the IPA, a trend that was abruptly reversed with the craft beer movement of the past few years. This increased interest in craft beer gave Pabst the perfect opportunity to bring back America’s Original IPA.

About Pabst Brewing Company
In business since 1844, the Pabst Brewing Company is North America’s largest privately held brewing company. Pabst’s portfolio includes iconic brands with deep ties to America’s heritage such as Ballantine, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Schlitz, Colt 45, Old Style, Lone Star, Stroh’s, Old Milwaukee and Rainier.
Pabst’s decision to re-launch Ballantine IPA after more than 30 years reflects the company’s recent move into the craft beer market where the company will maintain Peter Ballantine’s commitment to Purity, Body and Flavor. For more information, visit http://pabstbrewingco.com/.
