NPR debunks Jim Koch’s trick for not getting drunk

BeerNews.org - Sun, 07/13/2014 - 17:59

To keep his mind sharp and taste buds savvy through all those lagers and ales, Koch has a secret: He mixes a teaspoon of baker’s yeast with a small amount of food — usually yogurt — and gulps it down immediately before laying into a pint.

The Commons Biere Royale returns on Monday, July 14th

BeerPulse - Sun, 07/13/2014 - 17:32

Press Release: 

(Portland, OR) – The Commons Brewery will be releasing their next seasonal on Monday, July 14th at Belmont Station during their annual Puckerfest, a celebration of sour, wild and funky beers.

Biere Royale, modeled after the french cocktail Kir Royale, is a sour ale with black currants. First brewed as a popular draft-only beer for the Portland Fruit Beer Festival, the bottled version has a bright acidity from a house-grown Lactobacillus culture originally harvested from yogurt. Black Currants are added during primary fermentation to add additional acidity, fruitiness and a deep purple hue to the final product. The process was catalogued very well by our friend Sanjay at http://www.notsoprofessionalbeer.com/2013/09/brewing-with-yogurt.html.

Biere Royale will be available in 750ml capped bottles and in limited draft quantities at our Tasting Room and Portland’s finest grocery and specialty stores until mid-August.

In addition to Biere Royale, Belmont Station will have several other special draft beers for the occasion: Citrus Royale, the citrus companion to Biere Royale, Trillium, a limited blended, barrel aged sour farmhouse ale and Ortucky Common, a dark rye sour ale brewed specifically for the 2013 Puckerfest.

Opened in December 2011, The Commons Brewery crafts approachable and balanced European-inspired beers. The tasting room is located at: 1810 SE 10th Avenue, Unit E (entrance on SE Stephens between 10th & 11th). Tasting room hours are Thursday 5-9pm, Friday 5-9pm, Saturday 2-9pm, and Sunday 2-6pm.

Since its founding in 1997, Belmont Station has become Portland’s premier beer destination. The bottleshop features that have been thoughtfully selected, meticulously rotated, and properly stored under UV-filtered light to maintain the freshest selection of beer in the region. The adjacent features 20+ rotating taps and a cask “beer engine” pouring world-class brew on the cleanest draft system in Portland.

Saranac Clouded Dream White IPA joins High Peaks series

BeerPulse - Sun, 07/13/2014 - 16:06

Press Release: 

Saranac Releases Newest Small Batch Brew for a Limited Time
Saranac High Peaks Clouded Dream Now Available

(Utica, NY) — The F.X. Matt Brewing Co., brewer of Saranac, is introducing a special, limited edition brew, Saranac Clouded Dream-a hybrid IPA/Belgian White Ale. This “one off” beer was specifically designed as part of the Saranac High Peaks Series, which is the brewery’s exclusive extension of the Saranac line.

The Saranac High Peaks Series is a series of special beers, limited to one single batch. These beers are much bigger, more complex, and targeted to craft beer aficionados.

Saranac Clouded Dream is brewed with wheat and oats for a silky smooth body, and it finishes with a burst of citrusy hop flavor. You’ll notice a nice blend of traditional Belgian brewing spices, including orange peel and coriander. It’s hoppy and it’s big, but it’s very refreshing.

The idea for this beer was born out of great consumer feedback and the Saranac brewing team’s unrelenting quest for quality and innovation. Clouded Dream is an amplified version of Saranac White IPA. First introduced in late 2011, it was the first White IPA commercially available. After almost a year of research and experimenting, the brewing team honed-in on the perfect ingredients for this beer style; and now they’ve taken the concept to a whole new level.

“Everything our consumers tell us about our beers allows us to improve each batch, continually making the beer that much better,” said Fred Matt, president and 3rd generation. “This beer is a direct result of consumer feedback. At every industry event we attended, consumers told us that our White IPA had been recommended to them with highest regards. Well, if the beer aficionados really loved our White IPA, they’ll relish this beer. It’s all the greatness of our White IPA-amplified.”

The brewery’s Hop Infusion Process also brings the Citra hops in Clouded Dream to a new level. This special craft, which they refer to as H.I.P., exposes every drop of beer to hops, resulting in a brilliant burst of citrusy hop flavor in the finish.

Saranac Clouded Dream pairs well with blue cheese and spicy foods. It has 60 IBUs and 7.3% ABV and will be available in 4 packs and on draught in very limited quantities while supplies last.

Continue the conversation online. Use #Saranac and connect with F.X. Matt Brewing Company and Saranac on Facebook (www.facebook.com/Saranac), Twitter (@SaranacBrewery), and Instagram (@SaranacBrewery). For more information, visit saranac.com.

F.X. Matt Brewing Company in Utica, N.Y., was founded in 1888. Today, under the leadership of the third and fourth generations of the Matt family, the brewery is celebrating 126 years of brewing. Through a commitment to innovation and brewing excellence, the company has earned a reputation as one of the country’s most respected brewers of craft beers, including the Saranac line. In each bottle of Saranac, you’ll find exceptional quality, distinctive ingredients and a refreshing twist on tradition – the signature of the F.X. Matt Brewing Company.

Swamp Head Brewery breaks ground on 13,000-square-foot facility

BeerNews.org - Sun, 07/13/2014 - 15:42

Press Release: 

(Gainesville, FL) – Swamp Head has broken ground on their new 13,000 sq. ft. facility that will be located at 3650 SW 42nd Ave, Gainesville, FL. Scherer Construction of Gainesville is managing the ground up design/build project.

The new brewery and tasting room will feature an increased production area and an expansion of the brewery’s tasting room, “The Wetlands.”

With the expansion, Swamp Head will be able to more than triple its beer production, allowing for more packaged product, including cans. A new four-vessel 30-barrel (930 gallons) brew system and all associated tanks are currently being constructed in Oregon and will be installed at the new location. The new equipment will triple the size of each of Swamp Head’s brews on their current two-vessel 10-barrel (310 gallon) brew system. All of Swamp Head’s tanks and brew system will be sourced in the U.S.A.

The new tasting room, “The Wetlands,” will grow in size and have significant improvements from the current location, featuring a larger bar, more taps, more bathrooms, outside seating and a growler filling station separate from the main bar.

Swamp Head will continue operation at its current location at 3140 SW 42nd Way until the new facility is complete; announcements will be made when the new location is open for business.

Earlier this year, Swamp Head was awarded a gold at the World Beer Cup in the Smoke Beer style category for Smoke Signal, a robust smoked porter that uses alder wood smoked malt to obtain a soft, smoky flavor. The World Beer Cup is considered “The Olympics of Beer” and is a global beer competition that evaluates beers from around the world and recognizes the most outstanding brewers and their beers.

Swamp Head Brewery was founded in 2008 in Gainesville, FL and has been striving to follow their mission of brewing world-class beer and establishing themselves as Florida’s Brewery. In 2009, Swamp Head started selling Wild Night Honey Cream Ale, Cottonmouth Belgian Witbier, Stump Knocker Pale Ale, Midnight Oil Oatmeal Coffee Stout and Big Nose IPA. These five beers remain as their year round portfolio today.

SweetWater Brewing Co. to expand distribution to Ohio starting in September

BeerNews.org - Sun, 07/13/2014 - 11:33

Press Release: 

(Atlanta, GA) – SweetWater Brewing Company is movin’ and shakin’ with plans to launch brews in the Buckeye State, its northern-most distribution point to date, late this summer. Following the brewery’s recent $19 million expansion, SweetWater – ranked as one of the nation’s top 20 craft breweries by sales volume according to the Brewer’s Association – plans to bring its lip-smackin’ lineup to Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo, Akron, Youngstown, and Canton starting this September.

SweetWater expanded brewing, packaging and shipping operations in 2012, quadrupling its overall capacity. In early 2013, SweetWater announced plans to flow into three new states for the first time since 2008, including Kentucky, Louisiana and Virginia.

SweetWater currently distributes its notoriously hoppy and aggressive ales throughout a total of nine U.S. states across the Southeast. The distribution extension into Ohio, along with movement into Mississippi and Texas also this year, will bring SweetWater’s availability to 12 total states by the end of 2014.

Although decisions on distribution partners for the markets are still being confirmed, Ohio locals can look forward to spotting the brewery’s iconic rainbow trout tap handles and packaging throughout the area in upcoming months, along with local launch events and brand details to come.

“While on a recent tour through Ohio, I could feel the energy and excitement throughout the state surrounding craft beer,” said Jeff Chassner, director of new market business development at SweetWater Brewing Company. “We feel now is the perfect
