Beachwood / Heretic / Stone Unapologetic IPA due out 6/30, Coffee Milk Stout set for August

BeerPulse - Wed, 06/11/2014 - 09:02

(Escondido, CA) – Some brief news on a pair of upcoming Stone Brewing Co. beer releases…

First, a release date has been set for Beachwood / Heretic / Stone Unapologetic IPA, according to company marketing materials. The beer will ship next week with an intended launch date of June 30th. More on the beer below…

When you get three hopheads together to collaborate on a beer, it’s only natural to expect some hopped up liquid incarnation of their lupulin lust to spring forth from such a session. Maybe it seems passé to some—three masters of hoppy beer once again exploring the familiar territory of the India pale ale. After all, who needs yet another IPA, double or otherwise, right? It’s all been done. To those who feel this way, this trio’s reply is: “So what?” In birthing a double IPA made bitter and fruity care of a mélange of new and experimental hops (Azacca, Belma, and yet-to-be-named varieties from Washington’s Yakima Valley), they aren’t staying in a comfort zone—they’re hitting a sweet spot in the name of all that is good, delicious, hoppy and forward-thinking to create an IPA that’s both like and unlike anything they, or you, have ever tasted. Rife with essence of pine, resin, and fruits both citrus and tropical, there’s no need for apologies with this beer. All that’s necessary is a yearning for hops, a sturdy constitution and an empty glass.

Hops bill: Belma, HBC342, Azzaca, and Steiner 06300
Packaging: 22oz bottles and draft
Stats: 9% ABV / 90-100 IBUs

Also coming this summer is Stone Coffee Milk Stout, previously known as Gallagher’s After Dinner Stout at Liberty Station. The beer will replace Stone Saison in the seasonal six-pack rotation on August 4th. Marketing copy below…

There’s no shortage of talented people at Stone and each makes their presence known in their own unique way. Brian Gallagher, a brewer who learned the art of fermentation in the UK, used the beer you now hold, a New World take on a traditional Enlgish milk stout, as his vehicle for personal expression. Originally brewed as a limited-edition offering at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station, this coffee-laced milk stout quickly became a favorite among Gallagher’s peers. Made bittwersweet and creamy while remaining smooth and easy-drinking thanks to the addition of milk surgar, it’s clear why this is a brew we needed to share with fans everywhere.

Estimated at 4.2% ABV but subject to change.

Half Acre Beer Co. adding a restaurant at original location after all

BeerPulse - Wed, 06/11/2014 - 07:13

(Chicago, IL) – Half Acre Beer Co. President, Gabriel Magliaro, recently appeared on WBEZ’s Strange Brews podcast, showing the hosts around the company’s brand-new space at 2050 W. Balmoral Ave in Bowmanville.

In addition to sharing some of Half Acre’s background and philosophies, Magliaro revealed a few plans up the brewery’s sleeve.

As reported previously, the company’s offices will move from the existing spot on Lincoln Ave. to the new 60,000 square-foot facility. Also making the way over will be the company’s 60-barrel fermenters which will primarily be used for core beer production. The Bowmanville location, situated across from a senior living center, will also feature a taproom.

TThe 15-barrel and 30-barrel fermenters will stay at Lincoln Ave. which will transition to a “creative, one-off lab of sorts.” After things are moved out, plans for the current taproom are for size to essentially double and a kitchen to be added.

“There will be a restaurant,” says Maglario. Previous restaurant plans were reportedly nixed earlier this year.

Magliaro didn’t provide further details on the upcoming restaurant component quite yet, citing that “all of our mental energy has been going into the new space.”

Anchor Summer Beer returns

BeerPulse - Wed, 06/11/2014 - 06:15

Press Release: 

(San Francisco, CA) – Anchor Brewing Company announces the release of their summer seasonal, Anchor Summer® Beer, a refreshingly light and thirst-quenching American-style filtered wheat beer.

“When the temperature rises, we’re all looking for a lighter, yet still flavorful brew” said Brewmaster Mark Carpenter. “That’s why we created Anchor Summer Beer in 1984 and since then it’s become a brewery favorite whether we’re grilling al fresco, hiking a trail, setting up camp, spending a day at the beach or anything in-between. With the summer solstice right around the corner, the crisp, clean flavors of this brew are refreshingly light and the perfect complement to your summertime adventures or everyday activities.”

Released each year for the summer season, Anchor Summer Beer (4.5% ABV) is an all-malt beer, with over 50% of its malt derived from malted wheat. It is fermented with a traditional top-fermenting “ale” yeast, yielding a clean, balanced flavor that highlights the refreshingly light flavor of malted wheat. The head is unusually abundant due to the natural protein deposits of wheat, with a thick consistency similar to meringue. For beer lovers, Anchor Summer Beer is a lighter brew that doesn’t sacrifice tradition or character.

Anchor Summer Beer is available nationwide through August on draught, 12 oz., six-packs, and 22 oz. bottles as well as on tap in the Anchor Brewing Taproom in San Francisco. Learn more about this unique seasonal beer by watching the following video: Anchor Summer Beer Video
