Big Sky Ivan the Terrible Imperial Stout four-packs make debut

BeerPulse - Sat, 09/20/2014 - 15:39

News Wire: 

(Missoula, MT) – Big Sky Brewing Company is pleased to announce the release of Ivan the Terrible Imperial Stout four-packs. The imperial stout will hit retail shelves the week of September 22nd and is known among craft consumers for its notes of coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and roasted cocoa.

The Missoula Montana based brewery first developed this recipe in 1996 when a Moose Drool recipe went awry. Head brewer, Matt Long recalls the scene clearly: “the power went out and I walked into the brewhouse to one of my co-workers straining dark malt through a tied together Moose Drool tee shirt. Even for us, this seemed a little weird. The gravity was too high for Moose Drool, so we ran with it and added other the dark malts to create our first imperial stout.” 18 years later Ivan the Terrible still holds true to a traditional English style imperial stout.

Ivan Terrible has long been a Big Sky Brewing Company taproom favorite. The brewery has produced the beer every year since its humble beginning, with the exception of 2011. The beer’s loyal fans were disappointed in its disappearance in the same year. Long states: ”We definitely heard from some angry Ivan fans. It was probably the equivalent of going to a Skynard concert and not hearing Free Bird.” The arrival of the four-packs should more than please the beer’s loyal fans.

Four-packs are a popular format for stronger beers–such as imperial stouts–due to the package size and convenience. The 12 ounce bottles allow the opportunity to have a big beer without committing to 22 ounce or 750 milliliter alternatives. “We’ve always been committed to creating packaging that balances the integrity of our product with our customer needs. It’s the reason we can, and it’s the reason we’re offering four-packs of Ivan,” stated Long.

Boulevard and Ommegang brew up Collaboration No. 4 Saison, KC launch next week

BeerPulse - Sat, 09/20/2014 - 15:05

News Wire: 

(Kansas City, MO) – There is no sibling rivalry between Duvel Moortgat’s US-based Boulevard Brewing Company and Brewery Ommegang. The sister craft breweries recently partnered on Boulevard’s newest edition of its Collaboration series. Collaboration No. 4 is a Spiced Saison, which will be distributed in 750mL bottles and 1/6 barrel kegs throughout Boulevard’s distribution network later this month (Kansas City distribution begins on September 22nd for draught and September 23rd for bottles; other markets to follow soon after) .

Ommegang’s brewmaster Phil Leinhart traveled to Kansas City in July to make the beer alongside Steven Pauwels, brewmaster at Boulevard and his team of brewers. After the brewing process, the wort was transferred into two fermentation vessels. Boulevard’s primary Belgian yeast strain was added to one, and the other tank received Ommegang’s house yeast strain. The two batches were blended during the filtration process resulting in Collaboration No. 4. In addition to a variety of malts and hops, sweet orange peel, lemon peel, coriander and grains of paradise played key roles in the beer’s characteristics.

“Brewery Ommegang excels in using spices to add complexity and character to their Belgian-style beers while we’ve become known for our saisons at Boulevard,” said Pauwels. “The mutual admiration each brewery has for the other worked well as we combined our strengths into a complex, yet approachable beer that serves to reintroduce our breweries as Boulevard joins the Duvel Moortgat family.”

Previous beers in Boulevard’s Collaboration series include an “Imperial Pilsner” made in 2010 with esteemed Orval brewmaster Jean-Marie Rock, a “White I.P.A.” with Deschutes in 2011, and a “Stingo” with Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project in 2012.

About Boulevard Brewing Company
Boulevard Brewing Company has grown to become one of the largest specialty brewers in the Midwest, dedicated to the craft of producing fresh, flavorful beers using traditional ingredients and the best of both old and new brewing techniques. Earlier this year Boulevard became part of the Duvel Moortgat family of breweries. For more information, visit www.boulevard.com, boulevard.com/facebook, or follow us on Twitter at boulevard.com/twitter.

About Brewery Ommegang
Brewery Ommegang, located on a 136-acre farmstead in Cooperstown, NY, is regarded by many as the most beautiful brewery in America. The company opened in 1997 to brew fine Belgian-style craft beers, which are now distributed in 45 states. The brewery offers daily tours and tastings as well as a 100-seat café and an annual calendar of events, concerts and beer festivals. For more information, visit www.ommegang.com.

Back in Stock: Perlick 650SS w/Flow Control – $47.99

Homebrew Finds - Sat, 09/20/2014 - 13:00

The Perlick 650SS is a redesign of Perlick’s 545PC Flow Control Faucet.

This faucet is forward sealing, made of 304 Stainless Steel (the 545PC was chrome) and includes a flow compensator.  That flow compensator allows you to adjust the resistance your faucet is exerting.  This means less tubing and potentially less foaming and wasted beer. The compensation feature also makes it easier to serve higher carbonation beers as you can set the faucet to provide resistance to offset the increased pressure needed to store these beers.

Ritebrew recently started carrying the 650SS for $47.99.  That’s a great deal.  These sold out not too long after we posted about them earlier in September.  They are available again as of this posting.

843179 – Perlick Perl Faucet – Stainless – w/Flow Control - $47.99

Avery Pump[KY]n Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Pumpkin Porter debuts on 9/21

BeerPulse - Sat, 09/20/2014 - 10:55

News Wire: 

New behemoth joins Avery’s Annual Barrel Series at Release Party on Sept 21

(Boulder, CO) –​ ​This Sunday Avery Brewing Company will release its latest session beer. At 17.22% ABV, perhaps it’s not a “session beer” by most standards, but for a brewery releasing 6 beers that are over 16% ABV within a period of 5 months, this is right up their alley.

Pump[KY]n may be a huge beer, though Founder and CEO Adam Avery says that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to find a bunch of friends to split a bottle. “I try to just limit myself to one per drinking session. So I’d call it a sessionable beer…your session just ends quicker.”

Avery says beers of this gravity are as fun to drink as they are to make. “You can pour them into a glass and drink a different beer over the next hour as the beer warms.”

Pump[KY]n Bourbon barrel-aged pumpkin porter was spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves, and aged in fresh Bourbon barrels for 6 months. “We wanted to age a pumpkin beer in Bourbon barrels because we thought the vanilla and char flavors from the barrels would meld really well with the pumpkin and spices.”

Avery’s Chief Barrel Herder Andy Parker decided to go big with the spices in this brew. “If you added this spice level to a 5% ABV beer, it’d be undrinkable. But with this beer, the high alcohol, residual sugar, specialty malts and flavors from the Bourbon barrels allowed us to get aggressive.”

When asked what is behind the unusual beer name, Avery said, “I wanted to call it Bourb[KY]n but everybody here shot it down for six months. I finally conceded because the [KY] already calls attention to the fact that it’s aged in Bourbon barrels, so ‘Bourb’ was redundant. Plus, it sounded like ‘burp’. Changing a few little letters makes all the difference.”

Pump[KY]n is the newest member of Avery’s Annual Barrel Series, which also includes Uncle Jacob’s Stout aged in Bourbon barrels, Rumpkin pumpkin ale aged in rum barrels, and Tweak coffee stout aged in Bourbon barrels. This year’s batch of Rumpkin will be released later this month, with Tweak following in November, and Uncle Jacob’s Stout being released early next year from Avery’s new brewery.

Pump[KY]n will debut on Sunday, September 21st at the Avery Tap Room in Boulder. The line party starts at 11am and will feature rare and exclusive beers on tap. Bottle sales begin at 1pm and will be sold for $12 each with no bottle limit. Avery is expanding its barrel-aging program ten-fold, which means Pump[KY]n will reach store shelves in CO, AR, AZ, CA, FL, IL, KS, MA, MI, MN, MO, NJ, NY, OK, OR, PA , TX, VA, WA, WI, WY, and of course, KY.

Established in 1993, Avery Brewing Company has developed a reputation as being one of the most daring and visionary breweries in the nation. They are the brewers of Avery IPA, White Rascal Belgian-Style White Ale, The Maharaja Imperial IPA, Mephistopheles’ Stout and more than 20 other year-round and seasonal beers. For more information, beer connoisseurs can check www.averybrewing.com, email info@averybrewing.com, and follow Avery’s Facebook page and Twitter feed for the latest news.

Breckenridge Brewery making progress on $35 million brewery and restaurant

BeerPulse - Sat, 09/20/2014 - 09:46

News Wire: 

(Littleton, CO) – Early last year, Breckenridge Brewery announced the plans for its new 85,000 sq. ft., $35 Million brewery and Farmhouse restaurant, located on a 12-acre country spread along the South Platte River in Littleton, CO. Construction on the new world-class brewery commenced last fall, and now those plans are taking shape.

A crane dropped in the last of sixteen towering 400 bbl. fermentation tanks and four 400 bbl. brite tanks. The currently visible steel beams that lay the map for what this new brewery will look like, will soon be covered with rustic barn-style walls and roofing. The 100 bbl. Steineker brewhouse will be installed later this month, and just after the New Year all packaging equipment will arrive.

The Farmhouse, Breckenridge Brewery’s new restaurant and tasting room, is slated to open in April of 2015. The commissioning of the new brewhouse is scheduled for mid-May, 2015. Operations will move entirely to the Littleton site by June.

Breckenridge Brewery will open the doors to the new brewery with an initial capacity of 150,000 bbl./year, and that will be expandable to about 300,000 bbl./year before needing to build any additional structures. The brewery, ranked the 40th largest U.S. Craft Brewery in 2013, has posted higher than 20% growth for the past four years. The new production facility will allow Breckenridge Brewery to continue this growth in a sustainable manner. Currently, the Denver brewery is at maximum capacity, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, just to meet demand.

Features of the new brewery will lead to new, unique business endeavors. A 2,000 sq. ft. barrel cellar room will pave the way for an expanded barrel-aged program. Two acres of the 12-acre plot of land will be a dedicated hop field, which will allow Breckenridge Brewery to produce new fresh-hopped varieties. Additionally, there will be an organic vegetable garden, which the Farmhouse restaurant will utilize for a true farm-to-table dining experience.

Located near the Mineral Station RTD Light Rail stop at Aspen Grove, and right off of the Platte River Trail, which sees over 2 million bikers every year, the new Littleton brewery and Farmhouse restaurant will be extremely accessible to people located in Denver and surrounding areas. Breckenridge Brewery hopes to help expand the beer tourism movement that has been steadily growing along the front range of Colorado.

The new Breckenridge Brewery campus will become a Colorado destination. The Farmhouse restaurant seats 300 people inside and offers plenty of additional lounging in the expansive outdoor beer garden. Brewery tours of the entire grounds and operations will take place daily. The brewery will host special events throughout the year, including its annual Hootenanny, the brewery’s anniversary celebration. Next year the brewery turns 25, and plans are already in place for the Hootenanny that will occur at the new Farmhouse Brewery on Saturday, July 11th, 2015.

For updates, photos, and more on Breckenridge Brewery’s new Farmhouse Brewery, visit BreckBrew.com/FarmhouseBrewery.

About Breckenridge Brewery:
Breckenridge Brewery was founded in 1990 in Breckenridge, Colorado. In the past two decades Breckenridge Brewery has grown from a small 3,000-barrels-a-year brewpub to one of the most successful craft beer and restaurant companies in the nation. It now handcrafts more than 62,000 barrels of fresh beer annually and owns and operates six brewpubs and ale houses in the state of Colorado. For more information visit www.breckbrew.com.

A crane dropped in the last of sixteen towering 400 bbl. fermentation tanks and four 400 bbl. brite tanks. The currently visible steel beams that lay the map for what this new brewery will look like, will soon be covered with rustic barn-style walls and roofing. The 100 bbl. Steineker brewhouse will be installed later this month, and just after the New Year all packaging equipment will arrive.

The Farmhouse, Breckenridge Brewery’s new restaurant and tasting room, is slated to open in April of 2015. The commissioning of the new brewhouse is scheduled for mid-May, 2015. Operations will move entirely to the Littleton site by June.

Breckenridge Brewery will open the doors to the new brewery with an initial capacity of 150,000 bbl./year, and that will be expandable to about 300,000 bbl./year before needing to build any additional structures. The brewery, ranked the 40th largest U.S. Craft Brewery in 2013, has posted higher than 20% growth for the past four years. The new production facility will allow Breckenridge Brewery to continue this growth in a sustainable manner. Currently, the Denver brewery is at maximum capacity, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, just to meet demand.

Features of the new brewery will lead to new, unique business endeavors. A 2,000 sq. ft. barrel cellar room will pave the way for an expanded barrel-aged program. Two acres of the 12-acre plot of land will be a dedicated hop field, which will allow Breckenridge Brewery to produce new fresh-hopped varieties. Additionally, there will be an organic vegetable garden, which the Farmhouse restaurant will utilize for a true farm-to-table dining experience.

Located near the Mineral Station RTD Light Rail stop at Aspen Grove, and right off of the Platte River Trail, which sees over 2 million bikers every year, the new Littleton brewery and Farmhouse restaurant will be extremely accessible to people located in Denver and surrounding areas. Breckenridge Brewery hopes to help expand the beer tourism movement that has been steadily growing along the front range of Colorado.

The new Breckenridge Brewery campus will become a Colorado destination. The Farmhouse restaurant seats 300 people inside and offers plenty of additional lounging in the expansive outdoor beer garden. Brewery tours of the entire grounds and operations will take place daily. The brewery will host special events throughout the year, including its annual Hootenanny, the brewery’s anniversary celebration. Next year the brewery turns 25, and plans are already in place for the Hootenanny that will occur at the new Farmhouse Brewery on Saturday, July 11th, 2015.

SweetWater Brewing Co. announces upcoming Ohio distribution partners

BeerPulse - Sat, 09/20/2014 - 08:46

NewsWire: 

(Atlanta, GA) – On the heels of SweetWater Brewery’s recent announcement to launch distribution in the state of Ohio, the Southeastern craft brewery announces the Columbus and Cleveland wholesaler assigned to distribute the beers locally throughout northern and central Ohio. Announcements on remaining Oho markets still to be determined.

Through diligent planning and wholesaler assignments, SweetWater proudly names Superior Beverage Group to cover both the Columbus and Cleveland markets, which also entail Youngstown, Akron, Canton and surrounding areas. With their recently expanded production capacity, SweetWater’s current distribution footprint covers the Southeastern United States including Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Louisiana, Virginia and D.C.

SweetWater will bring their notoriously hoppy ales to the area starting with its flagship, 420 Extra Pale Ale, IPA, Blue and Take Two Pils on draft alongside bottles, cans and Tackle Box variety packs in off-premise grocery, package and s bottle shops including:
· 420 Extra Pale Ale – SweetWater’s 420 is a West Coast style pale ale with big hops and a crisp finish. First brewed on April 20, 1997, 420 is extremely well-balanced which makes it a perfect introduction to a new town – that’s why we say “drink ‘em if you got ‘em!” Rolling out in 6-pack bottles, 12-pack cans and draft.
· SweetWater IPA – This mammoth India Pale Ale (IPA) is dry-hopped to the gills delivering a kick-you-in-the-teeth hop chop. The brew is unfiltered to leave all the natural flavors intact. SweetWater IPA won first place in a blind tasting against 15 of the best IPA’s in the country held by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Rolling out in 6-pack bottles, 12-pack cans and draft.
· SweetWater Blue – SweetWater Blue is a unique, lighter-bodied wheat ale enhanced with blueberries. This ain’t no fruit beer, but it is our breakfast beer, and perfect for hanging on a warm Ohio day. Rolling out in 6-pack bottles and on draft.
· Take Two Pils – A golden blonde German pilsner brewed with spicy floral hops and a head-first trip down the rabbit hole of lagers. Call us in the morning! Rolling out in 6-pack bottles and draft.

· SweetWater Tackle Box – The SweetWater Tackle Box variety pack is a hefty 12-pack collection featuring three of SweetWater’s favorite year round brews, along with a fourth catch and release seasonal specialty in each box.

A crew from SweetWater will taste their way around the area with sampling celebrations and sponsored events kicking off the week of Oct. 6 in Columbus, and the week of Oct. 13 for Cleveland, Canton, Akron, Youngstown and surrounding markets. For the full schedule and participating locations, visit SweetWater’s Facebook Page.

Online fans can wet their whistles too by following the brewery’s Ohio Facebook page for details on how to enter SweetWater’s “Catch a Trout Tap” contest rewarding the first locals to spot their tap handles with free SweetWater Schwag.
