WLP200 American and English Yeast Blend Reviews

Homebrew Finds - Mon, 06/23/2014 - 11:37


More Beer and White Labs released this new collaboration yeast blend back in April.  WLP200 is a blend of American and English yeast strains.  The reviews are starting to come in...

Justin R says: "Used this on a split batch IPA/IPL, drove beer from 1.053 to 1.010 in 4 days. Even at only 4 days the beer is already very clear and flocculation is showing to be fantastic Taste from the hydrometer is showing it to be very good. Moved from 001 to 007 on my IPA's in the last year but I have a feeling this will be my new go to, really is best of both worlds."

Sierra Nevada sends Beer Camp Across America message in a bottle

BeerNews.org - Mon, 06/23/2014 - 09:03

Press Release: 

Limited release double IPA doubles as a beer festival invitation

(Chico, CA) — Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is sending a flavorful request instead of a formal one, today shipping to distributors a West Coast Double IPA in 24-ounce bottles that invites beer drinkers to attend Beer Camp Across America. An unprecedented seven-city traveling beer festival, Beer Camp Across America will feature more than 700 total breweries; each brewery will pour their beers at the festival closest to them. The West Coast Double IPA includes a message that calls drinkers to the bounty of beer that will be at each tour stop:

• Sat, July 19: Northwest Edition at Sierra Nevada Hop Field in Chico, CA, 12-5 p.m.
• Sun, July 20: Southwest Edition at Embarcadero North in San Diego, CA, 1-6 p.m.
• Fri, July 25: Rocky Mountain Edition at Civic Center Park in Denver, CO, 5-10 p.m.
• Sun, July 27: Midwest Edition at Navy Pier in Chicago, IL, 12-5 p.m.
• Fri, August 1: New England Edition at Thompson’s Point in Portland, ME, 5-10 p.m.
• Sat, August 2: Mid-Atlantic Edition at Penn Treaty Park in Philadelphia, PA, 12-5 p.m.
• Sun, August 3: Southeast Edition in Mills River, NC, 1-6 p.m.

“There will be a huge selection of great beers in every city we visit this summer, and we thought beer lovers would appreciate a glimpse of the fun to come with our own hopped-up invitation,” said Ken Grossman, founder of Sierra Nevada. “This is an IPA that’s West Coast in style, which is fitting since the whole pilgrimage kicks off here in California in just a few weeks.”

Heading to most states in limited quantities, the Beer Camp Across America West Coast Double IPA clocks in at 8.5% ABV and features five hop varieties, two of which went into Sierra Nevada’s “Hop Torpedo” dry-hopping device and impart hints of grapefruit and a floral note that recalls orange blossom. A light malt body and dry finish complement the bold hop profile.

Tickets for the seven Beer Camp Across America festivals are on sale at www.SierraNevada.com/BeerCamp. General admission is $65, which includes a commemorative tasting glass and unlimited tastings where possible as well as live music from the provocative Oregon-based MarchFourth Marching Band. Local food trucks will be on hand with their tasty wares for purchase. To see a video about Beer Camp Across America, visit YouTube.com/SierraNevadaBrewing.

Victory WildDevil IPA arrives

BeerNews.org - Mon, 06/23/2014 - 08:14

Press Release: 

(Downingtown, PA) – Victory Brewing Company® (Victory) is pleased to announce WildDevil IPA, an exciting new take on one of its most beloved beers, HopDevil IPA. Packed with all the same great juicy whole flower American hops as its brother, WildDevil undergoes a unique fermentation process transforming it into an original experience of floral hop splendor and funky, tart flavor overtones.

Victory Brewing Company created WildDevil, intrigued by the interplay of Belgian fermentation and American hops, and driven by the belief loyal HopDevil drinkers were ready for a new take on their popular, core brand classic. The Victory team of brewers crossed the traditional spiciness of American hops with the tart fermentation aspects of brettanomyces, often referred to as “wild yeast”. With one simple change, everything takes a turn for a unique and deliciously wild brew. The result is floral, aromatic hops paired with kicked up notes of citrus and pine to create a flavor profile not unlike a tart cherry pie.

WildDevil IPA, with an ABV of 6.7%, is available at craft beer bars, bottle shops, beer distributors and major gourmet grocery stores including Whole Foods and Wegmans, throughout Victory’s 34 state distribution footprint, with a suggested retail price of $9.00 and will be sold in 750 mL caged and corked bottles. Use Victory’s Beerfinder to discover a nearby location, or download the free Victory Mobile app for Android or iPhone.

“We’re excited for our fans to try WildDevil, because it showcases how creative our brewing team can be by making a slight change to a fan favorite.” said President and Brewmaster, Bill Covaleski. “We intersected the juicy, spicy flavor of American hops with the tart woody, tannic fermentation character of brettanomyces to create this unique, bold flavor. I recommend trying WildDevil and HopDevil side-by-side to really illustrate the difference one tweak in the brewing process can make.”

About Victory Brewing Company

Victory Brewing Company is a craft brewery headquartered in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. Founded by childhood friends, Bill Covaleski and Ron Barchet, who met on a school bus in 1973, Victory officially opened its doors in February of 1996. In addition to the original Downingtown brewery and brewpub, Victory recently opened a second state-of-the-art brewery in Parkesburg, PA to expand production capabilities and serve fans of fully flavored beers in 34 states with innovative beers melding European ingredients and technology with American creativity.
