New Belgium to open 10-barrel pilot brewery at The Source Hotel in Denver

BeerPulse - Wed, 07/22/2015 - 09:41

Press Release:

(Ft. Collins, CO) – New Belgium Brewing is about to let the creative juices flow through a new 10-barrel pilot brewery at The Source Hotel in Denver’s River North District (RiNo). New Belgium will brew on the ground floor of the Source Hotel, with barrel aging on the 8th floor in a rooftop lounge, dubbed “The Woods”, a collaboration between New Belgium and The Source Hotel. “The Woods” will serve New Belgium beers paired with small plates and will include a snack counter and bar, sit-down dining and beer garden. The 8th floor will also include a pool and roof deck with mountain and downtown views.

New Belgium beers originating from the 2,000 square foot brewery will go to establishments in The Source Hotel and expanded market hall. The fifty oak barrels for on-site aging will help expand New Belgium’s sour beer offerings, which the brewery has been producing since 1998. That’s when brewmaster, Peter Bouckaert, first introduced aging beer in wood barrels and blending to New Belgium. The brewery’s current cellar in Ft. Collins – also known as the foeder forest – now has 64 French Oak foeders, or barrels, making it one of the most comprehensive wood beer programs in the country.

“After 25 years in Ft. Collins, we’re really excited to get more deeply involved in Colorado’s cultural and political capital,” said Jenn Vervier, director of strategy and sustainability at New Belgium. “We’ve long considered creating a Denver location to bring the New Belgium experience to more of our Colorado fans and to the millions of travelers who visit Denver. RiNo is already a vivid scene with a rich art and craft beer culture, and will soon have great access for bikers and walkers. This small batch brewery will allow us to collaborate with The Woods’ chef and mixologists to create innovative beers, drinks, and pairings you can’t get anywhere else. The Source Hotel and the Zeppelin Development team are the perfect fit.”

Zeppelin Development, the Denver-based boutique development company behind The Source Hotel and expanded market hall will work with the group behind The St. Julien Hotel in Boulder, Colo. to operate The Source Hotel. Construction is set to begin this summer, with an anticipated opening in the first quarter 2017.

Charleston Beer Week returns for its third installment September 13-19th

BeerPulse - Wed, 07/22/2015 - 08:44

Press Release:

(Charleston, SC) – The third annual Charleston Beer Week will be held from September 13th through September 19th at venues throughout the greater Charleston area.

The third installment of Charleston Beer Week will once again celebrate the area’s burgeoning craft beer scene. The area now boasts nine production breweries and as many in planning, plus three brewpubs and a wide variety of craft beer-centric bars, restaurants, and retail stores.

Craft beer’s accelerating growth in Charleston is part of a statewide and national trend. According to the South Carolina Brewers’ Guild, 2013’s “Pint Law,” allowing breweries to serve up to 48 ounces of beer on-site, resulted in a $13.7 million impact on the state’s economy. The passage of the Stone Law last summer gives brewery tasting rooms free rein to serve beer on-premise with licensed food service. For folks in the industry and fans of craft beer, there is much to celebrate.

Lead organizers Chrys Rynearson and Timmons Pettigrew from CHSBeer.org, and Caleb Taylor from Summerville’s Homegrown Brewhouse, are once again holding the series of events the week following Labor Day. As it did in 2014, Charleston Beer Week coincides with Charleston Restaurant Week and Charleston Watersports Fest, allowing visitors and residents with varied interests to taste more than just beer.

42 events are in planning and event announcements are ongoing. Planned events are varied and unique, with many focusing on locally brewed beer, while others focus on complementing craft beer with everything from brunch, to sushi, to kickball, to ghost tours. Multiple events will also benefit various charities. The week will culminate with a beer festival in Summerville featuring exclusively sour and funky, naturally-fermented cask beer from South Carolina breweries.

Events will be announced via the Charleston Beer Week website and social media channels. Inquiries about sponsorship slots and event registrations can also be made through the website.

Charleston Beer Week events will be held throughout Charleston, Mount Pleasant, North Charleston, and Summerville. Visit www.charlestonbeerweek.com for event and sponsorship information.
