Epic Sour Brainless on Peaches begins slow rollout

BeerNews.org - Tue, 06/30/2015 - 12:32

Press Release:

Updated…

(Salt Lake City, UT) – Sour Brainless on Peaches: A Tincture of Time

Our cellarmen and packaging crew have been hard at work carefully bottling and wax-dipping the very first release of Sour Brainless on Peaches. This first release will be extremely limited with just under 5,000 bottles to be dispersed between the 19 states to which Epic Brewing Co. distributes.

The first chance to sample the beer will be at the Denver Taproom Release Party on Sunday, June 28th. The event is not ticketed and is free to attend. Participants will have the opportunity to sample the beer on draft, learn about our souring process, and even wax-dip their own bottle.

The second release will be in Salt Lake City on Thursday, July 2nd. Our brewmaster, Kevin Crompton, has personally selected two barrels which will be hand-bottled and sold only from the brewery cold case. There will be fewer than 175 22oz bottles available.

Following releases in each state will be announced on Epic’s social media accounts.

Original beer story from Epic Brewing Company Co-Founder David Cole:

This time we did it on purpose. It’s delicate yet firmly poised, it’s been chiseled and polished and even worn in, comfortable and gratifying because it’s mostly not by chance. We’ve crafted a truly exceptional SOUR Brainless on Peaches.

Our sour program has, literally, been in the works since we founded the brewery in 2010, with the vision of brewing truly sour beers made with real fruit. That vision got a major jump start shortly after we opened our Denver Brewery, in August of 2013, with the purchase of three 60 hectoliter Oak Foeders from New Belgium Brewing. These wonderful wooden vessels will, forever be seen as a very special gift from our friends in Fort Collins.

Some followers may recall when a beautiful disaster struck in 2014 and our Brainless on Peaches casks were contaminated with a peculiar wild yeast that left them sour but with a complex peach flavor that worked very well with the Belgian characteristics of our big, 9% ABV base beer, Brainless Golden Ale. This “Wild” Brainless on Peaches was not the sour beer we always intended; it was much stronger than we had dreamed of, and certainly wild with some sharp edges. Nonetheless, it was “A Beautiful Disaster,” a gift from nature and something we hoped to capture beyond a solitary “batch of chance.” We isolated and banked the wild yeast, then attempted several fermentations, but nothing worked. Even the tincture of time failed to revive this wild strain to anything remotely close to its one-time-strength and glory. Wild Brainless on Peaches remains a true one-off, lost forever.

Almost two years ago, in the fall of 2013, we filled two of the three foeders with a new sour base beer. One foeder was inoculated with Lactobacillus and another with Brettanomyces. At the same time we filled about 10 wine casks and inoculated them with Pediococcus. We feared Pediococcus: it might be the devil, and someone even marked the barrels with skull and crossbones. There was no way in hell we were going to put Satan into one of those larger, lovely wooden vessels. So, the third foeder sat waiting, destined to be used for blending both pre-wine-cask and post-fruited-wine-cask, a simple intermediate blending and maturation tank. The plan, (drawn while imbibing) was clearly laid out in the historical illustration here.

During 2013 through 2015 we regularly sampled each vessel to gauge its transformation. The early tastings were the worst part of the process. The Pediococcus casks were particularly offensive, rude, and tasted like whatever evil-day-old-room-temperature-vomit might taste like, mixed in with who knows what else. These early tastings filled us with doubt and regret along with a lingering nasty aftertaste. But after about a year of maturation the beer had transformed into an exceedingly sour, dry, and nuanced gem which we began to cherish. Out of them all, it was the Pediococcus casks that became our favorite souring “tool.”

Once we decided the beer was ready to meet fruit, we blended a portion of both foeders and all of the Pediococcus casks into neutral white wine casks with fresh peach puree. These casks underwent a third fermentation and additional aging which contributed substantially to the amount acid and brought the beer into balance. The art of sour beer is patience and flexibility. Moving into smaller wood casks allows us to select only the best of the best and only at the perfect time. The timing and amount is determined by the beer and not production schedules. We’ve waited over a year and half for this beer to develop and while the next batch might not take as long, it’s also not going to be rushed. And yes, we did inoculate that third foeder with Pediococcus for future releases.

Sour Brainless on Peaches emphasizes the fruit’s aromatics, not its sweetness. The sourness is derived from the Lactobacillus and Pediococcus with a little bit of Brettanomyces funk and tartness layered in, adding depth and complexity. The finish is tart, sour, and very dry, with maybe a touch of perceived sweetness from the Brainless Belgian Yeast. This is a beer that should be appreciated on the warmer side of cold. We took our time crafting this beer, and we hope you’ll take yours enjoying it.

The initial release is very small, with only a few cases going to each market. If sour beer is your passion then I encourage you to seek it out. Future releases are planned but no firm timelines can be established. Look for release announcements and availability on our social media accounts and website in the months of June and July.

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.

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.

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.
