Brewmasters Craft Beer Festival returns on Labor Day

BeerPulse - Tue, 06/30/2015 - 07:32

Sponsored Press Release:

(Houston, TX) – In its 6h year, BrewMasters Craft Beer Festival keeps gaining momentum, just like the craft beer industry itself. The festival, tapped as a fan-favorite by ThrillList, also remains a favorite of the industry where brewers regularly unveil never before tasted brews. Join fellow craft beer lovers and supporters as they gather Labor Day weekend to celebrate and sample more than 400 specialty and hard-to-find brews. This foamtastic celebration takes place at Moody Gardens Friday, September 4 through Sunday September 6, 2015.

The three-day celebration will showcase two signature events: BrewHaHa Grand Tasting and BrewLicious Brews and Foods Pairing. There are a host of related events like the BrewMasters PubCrawl and Texas Brewery Tasting Tour. Featured activities include: Beach, Brews and Bands live musical performances and fireworks, educational events, a slew of Brew Brains and industry experts, including award-winning BrewMasters and home brewing masters.

The craft beer industry shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Local brewers predict the upward trajectory will continue for years. Lennie Ambrose of Saint Arnold is excited about this trend and says “We’re now really entering a time where kids that grew up watching their parents drink craft beer are getting to be of age and will naturally gravitate to craft beer.” This steady growth shows that craft brewing is part of a profound shift in American beer culture—a shift that will help craft brewers achieve their ambitious goal of 20 percent market share by 2020 noted the Brewers Association.

New breweries are still on the rise with the recent opening of 11 Below in Northwest Houston. Event founder and organizer, Clifton McDerby, Executive Director of Food & Vine Time Productions, Inc. loves the fact that there is always a new brewery to introduce at BrewMasters. “We get really excited about showcasing what’s new in the market. Our vision has always been to produce the largest craft beer festival in the state by providing beer lovers with the widest selection of craft beers available at any Texas festival along with brew education,” remarked McDerby.

Festivities begin on Friday, September 4 with the BrewMasters Pub Crawl at 8 p.m. Hop on board this festive party bus departing from Moody Gardens with a tour to some of Galveston’s trendiest bars. Meet featured Brew Brains at each stop. Tickets are $25 in advance.

If you are Texas beer fan, and who isn’t, make your first stop of the day on Saturday September 5 at the Texas Brewery Tasting Tour. You’ll have a rare opportunity to take a tasting tour in a small group and intimate environment to enjoy featured Texas brewed selections. The event runs from 11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance and always sell out.

Then it’s time for the grand tasting. Saturday, September 5 sample some of the best brews in the world made available to beer lovers at the BrewHaHa Grand Tasting held in the Moody Gardens Convention Center. The Grand Tasting will feature over 400 craft and specialty brews as well as a Wine Escape with wine samplings. Admission to BrewHaHa is $35 in advance, $40 at the door, $85 for a VIP ticket, or choose a multi-event Hopper Pass. The BrewHaHa Grand Tasting will run from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and includes access to multiple beer seminars for all who take pride in their beer and want to expand their knowledge of craft beers.

Thirsty for more? This year Brewlicious Brews & Foods Pairing moves to Sunday, September 6, to give foodies time to get to the island. This spectacular event, where everyone is a VIP, is for the serious beer and culinary enthusiast. Every featured beer will be paired with food with a focus on high-end, premium, unique beer paired with just the perfect culinary accompaniment. BrewLicious Brews and Foods will run from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets are $75.

What would Labor Day be without a concert on the beach? On Saturday and Sunday from 6 p.m. – 10 p.m. get ready to have some fun in the sun as Moody Gardens rolls out a beach blast. Beach, Brews & Bands features live music in the sand followed by fireworks at Palm Beach. Tickets are $12 at the gate. $6 online as an add-on to any BrewMasters ticket purchase. Or $6 at the gate with a BrewMasters wrist band or ticket receipt. Tickets include all activities at Palm Beach plus the concert and fireworks. Admission to Palm Beach is included in your hotel stay.

Stone RuinTen Triple IPA is back for summer session

BeerPulse - Mon, 06/29/2015 - 18:16

Press Release:

(Escondido, CA) – It’s the time of year again when the mercury in thermometers rises in tandem with the hop faithful’s thirst for piney, botanical bitterness. The close of June marks the start of Stone RuinTen Triple IPA season for Stone Brewing Co. An amped-up IPA building off its famous progenitor, Stone Ruination IPA, this once-a-year offering explodes with citrus and stone fruit aromas that give way to an onslaught of pungent, resinous, tropical fruit flavors. This immensely hopped IPA is available now in 22-ounce bottles and on draft at restaurants, bars and retail shelves where Stone beer is sold, nationwide.

Originally released to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Stone Ruination IPA, this splendorous, hop-heavy gem debuted in June 2012 as Stone Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA and instantly became a hit among hoppy-beer lovers. Rather than limit the beer to one-hit wonder status, the recipe was revisited and added to Stone’s lineup of annual special releases. In 2013, it came back with the name Stone RuinTen IPA, the nickname given to it by the Stone Brewing Team. This year, it’s returning as 2015 Stone RuinTen Triple IPA and, though the word “triple” has been added to the name, that’s the only difference. The recipe remains the same: full-bodied, flavorful and hoppy as all get out…just the way we (and our fans) like it!

“Stone RuinTen Triple IPA has become one of our brewing team’s favorite IPAs, so we’re always thrilled to brew it come June,” says Stone Brewmaster Mitch Steele. “Dry-hopping with five pounds of Citra and Centennial hops per barrel results in a magical blend of fruity, floral notes.”

Adds Stone CEO and Co-founder Greg Koch, “If Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0 is a ‘Liquid Poem to the Glory of the Hop,’ then Stone RuinTen Triple IPA is ‘A Stage Dive into a Mosh Pit of Hops!’”

Built to sate the appetites of the highest order of hop fanatics, Stone RuinTen Triple IPA’s elevated malt presence provides a strong, full-bodied mouthfeel to help balance its intense, lingering hop bitterness while lending a slightly caramelized accent to hop-borne tropical fruit flavors. These delicious nuances are at their prime when the beer is consumed fresh, making Stone RuinTen Triple IPA an annual offering to be hunted down and enjoyed as soon as humanly possible.

As if the beer itself weren’t enough (it is), for the first time ever, the arrival of Stone RuinTen Triple IPA brings with it a celebration of both the beer and its recently updated, year-round counterpart, Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0. This comes via Stone Ruination Nation. Hop-hungry craft beer enthusiasts will be able to soak in the lupulin love at stores, bars and restaurants across the country via a bevy of special events—some of which will include oaked and double-dry-hopped iterations of Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0—and share what are sure to be bold experiences on social media using the hashtag #RuinationNation. Fans are invited to visit RuinationNation.com for more information on this celebration of the almighty hop and a pair of IPAs that pay fitting homage to beer’s boldest element.

You’re welcome…again.

Tasting Notes, provided by Stone Brewmaster Mitch Steele

Appearance: Deep gold with an off-white, fluffy head.
Aroma: Intense, dank and fruity hop notes. Lemon oil infused with nectarine, pineapple and tropical fruit, with hints of mint and spice.
Taste: An abundance of tropical hop flavors up front and carrying throughout the palate. A pleasant maltiness balances the hops midpalate. Finishes with a long, lingering, clean bitterness.
Palate: Full-bodied but dry, with an alcohol fullness and sweetness. Very bitter!
Overall: This was one of the team’s favorite IPAs, so we were thrilled to have the opportunity to brew it again. The combination of Citra and Centennial in the dry hop is magical. Please drink this beer FRESH to get the full impact of the hopping!
