Kona Hula Hefeweizen now available on draft in California, Nevada

BeerPulse - Tue, 07/25/2017 - 09:30

[Press Release:]

Previously only available in HI, the popular Hefeweizen is being poured in California and Nevada

(Kailua-Kona, HI) – Kona Brewing Company has brought one of its most popular small batch creations from the Kona Brewery in Kona-Kailua, HI to the mainland. Now available in California and Nevada, the traditional Bavarian-style weissbier is medium- to full-bodied with a pronounced fruitiness (banana/apple) and spicy characteristics (clove/nutmeg). These signature flavors and aromas are strictly a result of the type of yeast used when brewing this beer. Hula Hefeweizen (ABV 5%, IBU 16) represents an opportunity for craft beer lovers to try this small batch, draft-only offering until supplies run out.

Hula Hefeweizen pairs well with many foods and makes an excellent warm weather quencher. It is light enough to work well with poultry and seafood, yet has enough body to stand up to heartier foods like barbeque, sausage and strong cheeses. Be sure to serve Hula Hefeweizen with a nice big frothy head, lemon optional. To find Hula Hefeweizen, visit Kona Brewing Co.’s Beer Finder at www.konabrewingco.com/find-beer.

Star Trek: The Next Generation Symbiosis 30th Anniversary Ale coming to 35 states

BeerPulse - Tue, 07/25/2017 - 08:55

[Press Release:]

Shmaltz Brewing Boldly Unites Hops, Malts, Yeast and Water in
Pursuit of Craft Beer Excellence with the Limited-Edition Release of “Symbiosis”

(Clifton Park, NY) – Shmaltz Brewing Company goes to Comic-Con International with a unique Collector’s Edition release commemorating the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation. 2017 marks 30 years since Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered in September 1987, and Shmaltz Brewing kick[ed] off the anniversary festivities during Comic-Con (July 20 – 23) with several tasting opportunities for its freshly brewed Star Trek Symbiosis®. CBS Studios has teamed up with Shmaltz for the only officially licensed Star Trek beers in the United States.

In 2016, Shmaltz debuted two critically acclaimed Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ales to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the iconic franchise, Star Trek. 2017 brings triple the excitement with the limited release of three Star Trek specialty beers rolling out throughout the year. Under license by CBS Consumer Products, the first extraterrestrial elixir of 2017 was Star Trek Klingon Imperial Porter® (7.3% ABV). Lifting off this week, Star Trek Symbiosis® transports itself in 4-packs to retail outlets in 35 states across the country and will be on draft at select bars.

Star Trek: The Next Generation 30th Anniversary Ale — Symbiosis
For over 10,000 years a symbiotic relationship has thrived between yeast and sugar, malts and hops, beer and beer lovers. Shmaltz’s latest Star Trek release celebrates this benevolent co-existence and pays homage to the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: Next Generation, and the episode, “Symbiosis”. In this episode, two different races from the same galaxy have seemingly found a way to peacefully coexist and work together for the betterment of all. However, we eventually learn that their relationship is based on the false promise of felicium, which is sold by the Brekkians to the Ornarans. This forces Captain Picard to make an excruciating choice: uphold the Prime Directive, or save an entire civilization from exploitation. In this 30th Anniversary Ale, the Shmaltz crew has upheld its Prime Directive to boldly unite hops, malts, yeast, and water in the pursuit of craft beer excellence. Share a bottle of this limited edition commemorative ale with your own federation. Make It So!

Star Trek Symbiosis® Hoppy Wheat Ale pours a pale yellow with a thick white head. A generous amount of hops provide flavors and aromas of ripe lemon and pleasant herbs, giving Symbiosis® a dry, crisp and clean mouthfeel. Symbiosis® is a limited-edition, smooth, easy-drinking ale with prominent wheat maltiness and distinct flavors and aromas of Warrior, Centennial, and Amarillo hops, making it the perfect refreshment for enjoying a Star Trek marathon with fellow Trekkies or at your next summer bottle share.

About Shmaltz Brewing Company
Founder and owner Jeremy Cowan established Shmaltz Brewing in San Francisco in 1996. The first 100 cases of He’brew Beer® were hand-bottled and delivered throughout the Bay Area from the back of his Grandmother’s Volvo. Shmaltz Brewing now sells He’brew Beer across 35 states, through 40 wholesalers and in nearly 5,000 retailers.

After 17 years of being an outspoken cheerleader for contract brewing, Cowan and staff opened their own New York State production brewery in 2013 in Clifton Park, 10 minutes north of Albany. Shmaltz’s home boasts a 50-barrel brewhouse with 30,000 barrels of annual capacity and packages a diverse and tasty variety of core and seasonal favorites in 12 and 22-ounce bottles and kegs. The Shmaltz Tasting Room is open five days a week (Wed-Sun) and offers tours, barrel-aged previews, beer-to-go, and special releases.

RateBeer.com ranked Shmaltz as one of the “Top 100 Brewers in the World” in 2013, and the brewery brought home 10 gold and 6 silver medals from the World Beer Championships in the past several years.

Hi-Wire Brewing announces 2017 fall releases incl. Apricot Sour, Southern Hemisphere IPA

BeerPulse - Tue, 07/25/2017 - 07:55

[Press Release:]

(Asheville, NC)- After a busy summer, things do not seem to be slowing down for Hi-Wire Brewing. With production in full swing, Hi-Wire Brewing is excited to announce the release of four beers in the upcoming month.

Taking home the Gold Medal at the 2016 Great American Beer Festival in the German-Style Maerzen beer-style category, customers will be able to enjoy Hi-Wire Brewing’s Zirkusfest Oktoberfest (6% ABV) beginning the first week of August. Zirkusfest is a traditional Maerzen that boasts all the flavors one wants in a rich Oktoberfest lager without the heavy finish. The use of Munich malt provides upfront biscuity and honey flavors that fade into a dry finish. Zirkusfest Oktoberfest will be available on draught and in six-packs throughout Hi-Wire Brewing’s entire distribution footprint, as well as both of Hi-Wire’s taprooms.

For the fifth year in a row, Hi-Wire Brewing will be releasing Lion Tamer Rye IPA (7% ABV). This popular ale seasonal is aggressively hopped with a blend of citrus-forward Citra and Amarillo hops. Ruby red in color, Lion Tamer’s citrus fruit flavors are rounded out by the unmistakable spice bite of rye. Also available in six-packs and on draft, this beer will see Hi-Wire’s entire footprint beginning July 28.

Coming out of their Specialty program for the first time this fall is Hi-Wire Brewing’s Southern Hemisphere IPA (7% ABV). With hops from New Zealand and Australia, join Hi-Wire Brewing on an exploration of southern hops in this aromatic and drinkable India pale ale. Notes of green melon, juicy cantaloupe, and piney resin balance perfectly with a firm bitterness that doesn’t linger and finishes dry. Available in 4-packs of 16oz cans, Southern Hemisphere IPA will see limited distribution in Hi-Wire Brewing’s entire footprint beginning August 14.

Lastly, Hi-Wire Brewing will be releasing their much anticipated Apricot Sour Ale (8.5% ABV) Saturday, August 5 at 12pm from their South Slope facility | 197 Hilliard Ave. With upfront sourness, this beer is balanced with apricot sweetness before finishing dry and oaky from red-wine barrels. With a total fermentation time of 11 months, this sour ale will be available in 750ml bottles and will see limited distribution the second week of August.

About Hi-Wire Brewing
Located in Asheville, NC, Hi-Wire Brewing is known for producing approachable and balanced lagers and ales, most notably Hi-Wire Lager, Bed of Nails Brown, and Hi-Pitch Mosaic IPA. They have two locations in Asheville: the 27,000 square foot Big Top Production Facility & Taproom located half a mile from the Biltmore Estate and the South Slope Specialty Brewery & Taproom located in the South Slope area of downtown, which has a focus on wild and sour ales. Hi-Wire was awarded the most medals at the 2014 NC Brewer’s Cup and was named Best New North Carolina Brewery of 2013 by RateBeer.

Riegele now distributing in Massachusetts through Luxe Brands, Mass. Bev. Alliance

BeerPulse - Tue, 07/25/2017 - 07:05

[Press Release:]

European craft brewer Riegele debuts in Massachusetts

(Boston, MA) – The 2017 German Beer of the Year is now available in bottle and draught in New England. Riegele (pronounced Rig-ula), one of the most decorated craft breweries in Europe, is now available throughout Massachusetts.

Through its U.S. importer, Luxe Brands, Riegele has signed an agreement with Massachusetts Beverage Alliance (MBA) for statewide distribution. Riegele will initially be selling its award winning Festbier-Privat; Weizendoppelbock; Augustus 8, named 2016 German Beer of the Year; and its gold medal winning Imperial Helles-Ator. Seasonal beers, such as Dunkel, Doppelbock Dunkel, Herren Pils and Bavarian Ale, will be available on a limited basis.

Established in 2011, the Massachusetts Beverage Alliance provides brewers of all sizes a flexible distribution option committed to quality and freshness in the competitive Massachusetts beer market. Through a like-minded alliance of five long standing family owned distributors, MBA offers statewide sales distribution and customer support to over 10,000 customers across the Commonwealth..

Riegele is under the direction of World Champion Beer Sommelier and 28th generation brewer, Sebastian Priller-Riegele, who believes that the fine art of brewing needs only three main ingredients: passion, dedication, and knowledge.

The German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture recently named Riegele 2017 German Brewery of the Year, bestowing the “Bundesehrenpreis” award for outstanding achievements in the DLG Quality Test for Beer. One of only a dozen German breweries to receive the honor, Riegele received 22 gold medals and one silver medal; these followed closely on the heels of recognition at the Meiningers International Craft Beer Award in May, in which Riegele was named International Craft Brewer of the Year with 17 medals; four platinum, four gold and nine silver.

The brewery won a dozen medals at last year’s Meiningers International Craft Beer Award, and its Riegele Augustus 8 was named the 2016 German Craft Beer of the Year. The brewery has also been voted as Europe’s Best Brewery at the European Beer Star and 2016 World Cup of Beer; named 2015 German Craft Brewery of the Year; won the prestigious DLG National Prize an unprecedented nine times in a row; and had its Commerzienrat Riegele Privat proclaimed 2010 German Beer of the Decade.

Founded in 1386, Riegele is acknowledged as one of Germany’s leading breweries in respect to quality and beer culture. Riegele is imported to the United States by Luxe Brands and is currently being distributed in bottle and draft by Cavalier Distributing in FL, OH and IN; Sarene Craft Beer Distributors in NY; River City Distributing in KY: and Massachusetts Beverage Alliance in MA.

One of only a dozen German breweries to receive the honor, Riegele received 22 gold medals and one silver medal; these followed closely on the heels of recognition at the Meiningers International Craft Beer Award in May, in which Riegele was named International Craft Brewer of the Year with 17 medals; four platinum, four gold and nine silver.

The brewery won a dozen medals at last year’s Meiningers International Craft Beer Award, and its Riegele Augustus 8 was named the 2016 German Craft Beer of the Year. The brewery has also been voted as Europe’s Best Brewery at the European Beer Star and 2016 World Cup of Beer; named 2015 German Craft Brewery of the Year; won the prestigious DLG National Prize an unprecedented nine times in a row; and had its Commerzienrat Riegele Privat proclaimed 2010 German Beer of the Decade.

Founded in 1386, Riegele is acknowledged as one of Germany’s leading breweries in respect to quality and beer culture. Riegele is imported to the United States by Luxe Brands and is currently being distributed in bottle and draft by Cavalier Distributing in FL, OH and IN; Sarene Craft Beer Distributors in NY; River City Distributing in KY: and Massachusetts Beverage Alliance in MA.
