Terrapin Turtleneck Gingerbread Winter Warmer joins Side Project series

BeerNews.org - Tue, 12/23/2014 - 08:18

Press Release: 

(Athens, GA) – As the air grows winter-crisp and the mercury continues to drop, Terrapin Beer Co. helps fans bundle up with Side Project 24: Turtleneck Gingerbread Winter Warmer. Turtleneck was the winner of Terrapin’s second annual Employee Homebrew Challenge.

The Employee Homebrew Challenge is the brainchild of Terrapin VP Sales/Marketing Dustin Watts. The Challenge splits all Terrapin employees into assigned teams containing members from each department. The mission is straightforward: formulate a beer recipe and brew a 5-gallon batch, choose a name, design a label concept, develop a marketing strategy, and present the brew as creatively as possible in a skit to all coworkers and a panel of judges at the company holiday party. There are no style guidelines or rules, though the project must fit the “Side Project” line of inventive, unique beers, must be feasibly brewed on a commercial level, and all aspects of the project (brew ingredients, marketing materials, etc.) must stay within the provided $75 budget.

“I saw the Employee Homebrew Challenge as a great way to get our employees working together across departments on a fun project that has a real reward,” said Watts. “Employees get to see how other departments in the brewery contribute to each step required to get a beer on shelves from start to finish, so it’s also educational. Besides that, all these skits make our holiday party a ton of fun!”

The members of the winning team are Abigail Agati (sales), Erin Appel (marketing), Henry Friederich (packaging), Jennifer Gresenz (tour), Kelly Guglietta (tour), Lee Maine (tour), Morgan Maine (tour), Andy Rattner (sales), David Stock (packaging), and Brandon Stull (brewer).

From the label:
Terrapin’s 2014 homebrew contest winners have created “Turtleneck” spiced winter warmer. Initially brewed in the backwoods of Athens, Georgia, or someone’s kitchen, this gingerbread cookie inspired beer was artfully crafted by a crack team of Terrapin employees. Since no gingerbread men or women were harmed in the making of this beer, we hope you will enjoy with a clear conscience.

Malt: 2-Row Pale, Malted Wheat, Crystal 85, Honey Malt, DH Carafa II
Hops: Warrior, Nugget
Other: Gingerbread spices including Ground Cinnamon, Chicory, Ginger, Allspice, Clove, Nutmeg

ABV: 8.4%
IBU: 35
OG: 19.5

The third annual Employee Homebrew Challenge is currently underway. The winning beer will be chosen at Terrapin’s holiday party and released as Side Project 26 in late 2015. A new twist has been added for this year; all beers must feature peppercorn.

Turtleneck is packaged in 1/6 BBL kegs and 22 oz. bottles and will be available throughout Terrapin’s distribution network.

Widmer Brothers and Deschutes Brewery’s AltBitter collab now available

BeerPulse - Tue, 12/23/2014 - 07:55

Press Release: 

(Portland, OR) – Two of Oregon’s craft beer pioneers, Widmer Brothers Brewing and Deschutes Brewery, came together to brew a unique collaboration beer, AltBitter. The collaboration is part of a yearlong celebration of Widmer Brothers’ 30th Anniversary and an example of the great camaraderie in the Oregon craft brewing scene. AltBitter is inspired by two of the first recipes from each brewery and is available now in select markets across the country.

AltBitter is a unique blend of two favorites from the pioneering breweries: Deschutes Brewery’s Bachelor Bitter and Widmer Brothers Brewing’s Altbier. Imperial versions of both classic beers were brewed and aged separately in rye whiskey barrels for eight months. AltBitter is a two-thirds blend of the barrel-aged versions of each beer with one-third non-barrel aged beer. The result is a hoppy ale with a big, malty backbone, which pays homage to the breweries’ respective German and English influences, yet is still uniquely Oregon.

“We have been friends with Gary Fish since the early days of Deschutes Brewery,” said Rob Widmer, co-founder of Widmer Brothers Brewing. “It really means a lot to have both of our breweries come together to create a beer. We have always respected Deschutes and love what they’ve done for the Oregon craft beer community. The beer is a blend of our histories and it’s great to have finally done something together after all these years.”

AltBitter is part of a series of limited release collaboration beers commemorating Widmer Brothers’ 30-year history. The 30th Anniversary Collaboration Series is a celebration of the Oregon brewing community and the unique bond among craft brewers in Oregon. The series has previously featured collaborations with Boneyard Beer, Breakside Brewery, 10 Barrel Brewing, and Gigantic Brewing.

“Getting together with Widmer Brothers for this beer was really a lot of fun,” said Gary Fish, founder of Deschutes Brewery. “The whole process – from brainstorming beer ideas to bringing this beer to life – was a pleasure. We are happy to be a part of their 30th Anniversary celebration.”

AltBitter will be available starting today in 22-ounce bottles and on draught, with limited distribution in select markets, including Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Minneapolis, New York City, Boston, and Philadelphia.

For more information, visit www.widmerbrothers.com or follow the brewery on Facebook.

Ithaca Daydreamer Kölsch kicks off brewery’s 2015 seasonal program

BeerPulse - Tue, 12/23/2014 - 07:22

Press Release: 

(Ithaca, NY) – Ithaca Beer Co. kicks off its 2015 Seasonal offerings with Ithaca Daydreamer, an American style Kolsch. Originating from Cologne (Köln), Germany, the Kölsch style was historically only brewed along the Rhine (Rhein) River and fairly light in alcohol at 4.5-5.5% abv.

Daydreamer offers the unique character of traditional German Kolsch yeast and the blend of Pilsner, 2-Row, and German malts resulting in a pleasantly fruity, bready and slightly sweet aroma. While traditional Kolsch beers are typically lower in alcohol, we punched up Daydreamer to a warming 7% a.b.v. But despite Daydreamer’s strong a.b.v. backbone, the complex blend of malts, hops and yeast provide a smooth and clean mouth feel for a clean, easy drinking experience. Daydreamer pours near clear, vibrant yellow in color and with a white fluffy head.

Head of Brewing Operations Andrew Hausman says “We wanted to make a Kolsch that stood out from the rest, but can still be identified by its traditional German heritage. There are several secrets, with the yeast being the most special. The challenge for us was working with a rare yeast from Köln that requires a high degree of skill and craftsmanship. We’ve been astounded by the results since day one. The unique fruity complexity is unlike anything we’ve ever created.”

Ithaca Daydreamer will be available on draft in bars and restaurants and in 12 oz. bottle 6 packs in stores until early Spring.

Craft beer share up 1.3% on-premise in latest four week period, per GuestMetrics

BeerPulse - Tue, 12/23/2014 - 07:00

Press Release: 

> Traffic in the on-premise channel was down 0.1% in the 4 weeks ending 11/30, which continues the improved trend over the past 3 months vs. the approximately 1.5% traffic decline during the first half of the year. We attribute the improved trend to the benefits of lower gas prices and improved consumer sentiment. Overall food and beverage retail sales were up 2.6%, driven by alcohol dollar sales up 0.6% and food sales up 3.6%. Food volume was up 1.5% vs up 0.4% YTD with food prices holding steady at +2.1%. Thus consumers are taking the savings from lower gas prices and ordering more food with smaller dishes (in other words, appetizers/sides), which is still gaining share vs. entrees.

> We’ve seen the biggest improvements in the casual dining segment and the lodging segment. Independent fine dining locations are seeing traffic decline but at a slower rate than earlier in the year. Bars and clubs remained pressured with traffic down 2.2% in the latest 4 weeks, likely a function of economic pressure on the 21-27 year old demographic as well as the dynamics driving the pressure on the late night day part.

> Beer volume was down 3.6% which is in-line with the YTD trend, while wine volume was down 1% and spirits volume down 0.7%. Beer continues to have the highest price/mix of the 3 segments, with price/mix up 3.6% in the latest 4 weeks vs up 0.9% for wine and 2.2% for spirits. Trade up to higher end beers is driving a big part of the 3.6% price/mix for the category.

> Craft beer share was up 1.3% vs up 1.9% YTD as share gains have moderated in recent months. Premium Light share was down 1.6% vs down 1.9% YTD. Cider share is up 0.5% which is line with its YTD trend.

> IPA continues to be the fastest growing beer style, gaining 1.3% share points in the latest 4 weeks.
