MadTree Luna Lux White IPA launches as seasonal can with Drake Planetarium event

BeerPulse - Tue, 11/21/2017 - 14:54

MadTree Launching New Can: Luna Lux – Dark Winter Beer Alternative
Luna Lux white IPA launch party features portable planetarium to raise money for space education

(Cincinnati, OH) – MadTree Brewing is launching a new seasonal canned beer, Luna Lux white IPA, next week to complement Thundersnow and other traditional dark winter beers. While the brewery loves their spiced winter ales, they wanted to make something that could stand up to the cold weather but was still crisp and easy to drink. A white IPA brewed with coriander and lemon peel, Luna Lux’s name translates to ‘moon light’ as a nod to the beer’s style and color. Craft beer drinkers can expect light fruit flavors from the coriander, lemon peel, and hops, along with a crisp clove finish from the Belgian yeast.

To celebrate the new seasonal offering, MadTree is partnering with local not-for-profit, Drake Planetarium & Science Center, to bring a portable planetarium to the taproom launch party. The portable planetarium will take thirty people at a time on a 15-minute journey to space and the moon. A portion of all Luna Lux cans and merchandise sold in the MadTree Taproom on Tuesday, November 28 will be donated to the Drake Planetarium.

“We wanted to make a cold weather beer for those times when you’re not in the mood from something dark and heavy,” said Brady Duncan, MadTree co-founder. “The hops and coriander really shine in Luna Lux while the Belgian yeast character make it robust enough to carry you through the winter chill.”

The not-for-profit Drake Planetarium & Science Center’s mission is to provide a wide range of supplemental, active learning science programs that stress the learned use of higher order thinking skills necessary to function in today’s society. They are committed to offering age-appropriate, hands-on, fun oriented student participation in lab experiences that stress higher order thinking skills. Drake Science Center houses the Engineering and Lego® Labs, Summer Camps, Saturday Lego® Programs, and Lego® Birthday Parties.

The launch party and portable planetarium shows will be held from 4PM to 8PM on Tuesday, November 28 in the MadTree taproom at 3301 Madison Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45209. The taproom launch party is the first opportunity to purchase six-packs priced at $10.50 each (tax included). Six-packs and draft Luna Lux will be available throughout Ohio and Kentucky beginning the week of December 4th.

In February 2017 they opened a new $18M brewery, taproom, beer garden, and private event spaces in Cincinnati’s Oakley neighborhood.

Budweiser takes next step to be the first beer on Mars

BeerPulse - Tue, 11/21/2017 - 13:33

Budweiser Will Launch Barley into Space Next Month to Begin Research on Future of Beer

(New York, NY) – Budweiser is upholding its commitment to be the first beer on Mars by confirming upcoming experiments on the International Space Station with plans to send and study barley – one of its key ingredients – into space in early December. The reason? Earlier this year at the South by Southwest conference, Budweiser announced its goal to be the first beer on Mars – offering a colonized red planet the same enjoyments provided here on earth, including fresh beer! And while socializing on Mars might be in the near-distant future, Budweiser is taking steps now to better understand how its ingredients react in microgravity environments so that when we get to Mars, Budweiser will be there.

To kick-start its research on microgravity beer, Budweiser is partnering with experts in the field, including CASIS* who manages the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory, and Space Tango, a payload development company that operates two commercial research facilities within the National Lab. Together the group, along with Budweiser’s innovation team, will initiate two barley experiments via SpaceX’s upcoming cargo supply mission, scheduled to launch on December 4 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. Once on the International Space Station, Budweiser’s barley will stay in orbit for approximately one month before coming down to be analyzed.

“Budweiser is always pushing the boundaries of innovation and we are inspired by the collective American Dream to get to Mars,” said Ricardo Marques, vice president, Budweiser. “We are excited to begin our research to brew beer for the red planet.”

Budweiser’s innovation team selected barley, one of its core ingredients, to be the focus of the first two experiments in space. Malting barley is a process that results in the high-quality malt used in the Budweiser enjoyed today and the research on the International Space Station will unveil how the barley seeds react in a unique microgravity environment. One of the experiments will focus on barley seed exposure with the second testing barley germination. Not only will the research offer insights on steps to creating beer on the Red Planet, but it could also provide valuable information on the production of barley and the larger agricultural community here on earth.

Scheduled to launch on Monday, December 4, twenty Budweiser barley seeds will be sent to the International Space Station, packaged in two Space Tango CubeLabs on SpaceX’s CRS-13 rocket. The seedlings will be in orbit for approximately 30 days, before being brought back down to earth for Budweiser’s innovation team to analyze – setting the foundation and blueprint for Budweiser’s next move in brewing the beer of the future.

For more information, check out Budweiser on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.

To learn more about CASIS visit www.iss-casis.org and to view the rocket launch live on December 4, visit www.SpaceX.com.

*CASIS stands for Center for Advancement of Science in Space, a non-profit, non-government organization that acts as the manager of the research facility on the International Space Station, with a focus on enabling a new era of space research to improve life on Earth.

About Budweiser

Budweiser, an American-style lager, was introduced in 1876 when company founder Adolphus Busch set out to create the United States’ first truly national beer brand – brewed to be universally popular and transcend regional tastes. Each batch of Budweiser stays true to the same family recipe used by five generations of Busch family brewmasters. Budweiser is a medium-bodied, flavorful, crisp and pure beer with blended layers of premium American and European hop aromas, brewed for the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment. Budweiser is made using time-honored methods including “kraeusening” for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character.

Scofflaw expanding again with new brew house, increasing annual capacity to 30k bbl’s

BeerPulse - Tue, 11/21/2017 - 13:06

[Scofflaw Brewing l. to r. — Joe McIntyre, J.P. Watts, Co-founders Matt Shirah, Travis Herman]

(Atlanta, GA) – Plans are in place for a third expansion at Scofflaw Brewing Company, the Georgia brewery growing at a rapid pace and known for its IPAs and barrel-aged stouts.

The brewery has a new 50-barrel, four-vessel brewhouse under construction at BrewFab, scheduled to be installed by Mar. 1 at the current brewing facility in the Bolton neighborhood of Atlanta on the city’s Westside.

Eight additional 100-barrel fermentation tanks plus new bright tanks will also be installed, starting in November. The third expansion in the first 18 months of operation will double the brewery’s current capacity to 30,000 barrels per year.

“We came up against capacity constraints when we opened with 6,500 barrels and at 12,000 barrels and again at 16,000 barrels,” said co-founder Matt Shirah. “Each time we’ve added fermentation tanks, we’ve ended up at maximum capacity. We needed to replace the current 20-barrel brewhouse and do a build-out to give us the capacity we need going forward.”

Demand for kegs continues to drive the growth for Scofflaw, which is distributed solely in Georgia. Shirah anticipates much of the new capacity will be needed to satisfy the keg demand from restaurants, gastropubs, beer bars, tap rooms and growler shops. “We don’t see any incremental increase in can production, because demand for draft is so strong. But we are working on a stronger packaged beer program.”

The expansion will make some of the brewery’s original fermentation tanks available for more R&D beers to be served in the iconic tap room, which features a full view of the brewery and an adjacent outdoor beer garden.

A new, higher capacity centrifuge has already been installed to improve efficiency and additional laboratory equipment for quality control. To support the growth of craft beer in the state, the current brewhouse will be sold to a Georgia craft brewer after the new installation.

About Scofflaw Brewing Co. – www.scofflawbeer.com
Co-founded by Matt Shirah and Brewmaster Travis Herman, who developed beers on a one-barrel system in the basement of the home of Shirah’s mother-in-law, Scofflaw opened in August of 2016. It has been named by BeerAdvocate, Paste Magazine, USA Today and Craft Beer & Brewing as one of the best new breweries in America.

Angel City Sunbather #2 and Baltic Porter pint cans part of a Dec. 16 double release

BeerNews.org - Tue, 11/21/2017 - 12:52

(Los Angeles, CA) – Angelenos know how powerful a pair can be – Kobe and Shaq, avocado and toast, Venice Beach and Abbot Kinney. This holiday season, Angel City Brewery is releasing another dynamic LA duo, Baltic Porter and Sunbather #2. These two distinct beers will have your December drink needs covered, with the first perfect for seasonal sipping and the second a quintessential quencher. Four-packs of 16 oz. cans will be released on Saturday, December 16th from 12-4 pm.

The first of the duo is Baltic Porter, an exceptionally dark beer with a black opaque appearance and slightly smoky aroma. Unlike traditional porters, Baltic porters use lager yeast which results in a velvety smooth and slightly sweet beer. Featuring notes of dark chocolate, licorice and toasted bread, this porter is brewed with a variety of malt, including pale chocolate malt, wheat, beechwood smoked malt, CaraFoam and black pearl. Baltic Porter has an ABV of 7.2% and IBU of 30.

The counterpart to the Baltic is the Sunbather #2, the sequel in the Sunbather collection. This sour single hop session features Amarillo hops and has an ABV of 4.2% with an IBU of 16. With a slightly hazy golden yellow appearance and a refreshingly tart taste, Sunbather #2 is perfect to enjoy while soaking up the LA sun, or hosting a holiday party.

All are invited to celebrate the launch of the new canned beers at Angel City Brewery on Saturday, December 16th from 12-4 pm at the two-can release party. The first 50 people to purchase a pack will receive a Baltic Porter and Sunbather #2 art poster. While at the brewery, make sure to check out Arts District Daze happening throughout the neighborhood. Arts District Daze is a monthly block party with special art events, exclusive menu item, sales and music. Follow the yellow balloons around the neighborhood to check out participating locations.

“We are continuing to expand our canning program, and this double beer drop of Baltic Porter and Sunbather #2 is an excellent addition to the lineup,” said Layton Cutler, Head Brewer at Angel City Brewery. “Baltic Porter is typically bottled, so it will be nice to have an easy-to-sip and carry can package for drinkers to bring to holiday events.”

Angel City Brewery brews beer for the greater LA area and beyond at their Downtown based brewery in the heart of the Arts District.

Angel City Sunbather #2 and Baltic Porter pint cans part of a Dec. 16 double release

BeerPulse - Tue, 11/21/2017 - 12:52

(Los Angeles, CA) – Angelenos know how powerful a pair can be – Kobe and Shaq, avocado and toast, Venice Beach and Abbot Kinney. This holiday season, Angel City Brewery is releasing another dynamic LA duo, Baltic Porter and Sunbather #2. These two distinct beers will have your December drink needs covered, with the first perfect for seasonal sipping and the second a quintessential quencher. Four-packs of 16 oz. cans will be released on Saturday, December 16th from 12-4 pm.

The first of the duo is Baltic Porter, an exceptionally dark beer with a black opaque appearance and slightly smoky aroma. Unlike traditional porters, Baltic porters use lager yeast which results in a velvety smooth and slightly sweet beer. Featuring notes of dark chocolate, licorice and toasted bread, this porter is brewed with a variety of malt, including pale chocolate malt, wheat, beechwood smoked malt, CaraFoam and black pearl. Baltic Porter has an ABV of 7.2% and IBU of 30.

The counterpart to the Baltic is the Sunbather #2, the sequel in the Sunbather collection. This sour single hop session features Amarillo hops and has an ABV of 4.2% with an IBU of 16. With a slightly hazy golden yellow appearance and a refreshingly tart taste, Sunbather #2 is perfect to enjoy while soaking up the LA sun, or hosting a holiday party.

All are invited to celebrate the launch of the new canned beers at Angel City Brewery on Saturday, December 16th from 12-4 pm at the two-can release party. The first 50 people to purchase a pack will receive a Baltic Porter and Sunbather #2 art poster. While at the brewery, make sure to check out Arts District Daze happening throughout the neighborhood. Arts District Daze is a monthly block party with special art events, exclusive menu item, sales and music. Follow the yellow balloons around the neighborhood to check out participating locations.

“We are continuing to expand our canning program, and this double beer drop of Baltic Porter and Sunbather #2 is an excellent addition to the lineup,” said Layton Cutler, Head Brewer at Angel City Brewery. “Baltic Porter is typically bottled, so it will be nice to have an easy-to-sip and carry can package for drinkers to bring to holiday events.”

Angel City Brewery brews beer for the greater LA area and beyond at their Downtown based brewery in the heart of the Arts District. The brewery’s Public House features a 19-tap bar that serves an ever-changing roster of classic and newly inspired beer, and is open seven days a week with a full calendar of events ranging from trivia nights to art shows, live music and festivals. The Public House is open Monday-Thursday, 4:00pm – 1:00am, Friday 4:00pm – 2:00am, Saturday 12:00pm – 2:00am and Sunday 12:00pm – 1:00am.

Colorado Native Winterfest makes seasonal return

BeerPulse - Tue, 11/21/2017 - 12:01

(Golden, CO) – The holidays are here, which means it’s time for AC Golden Brewing Company’s Colorado Native Winterfest to make its appearance. This year it arrives with a bang – receiving a gold medal at the All Colorado Beer Festival.

Winterfest is a traditional bock the company began brewing in 2015 as part of its Colorado Native family of brands, all of which are brewed with 100 percent Colorado ingredients.

The beer won gold in the Bocks, Scottish and Irish Ales category at the festival, which was held earlier this month in Colorado Springs. Beers from more than 60 Colorado breweries were entered into the 11th annual festival.

Moravian two-row pale, Munich, and chocolate malts are used to help create Colorado Native Winterfest’s sweet toasted malt and biscuit flavor. Clean alcohol character balances the malt sweetness and noble hop bitterness. A long lasting, billowy white foam head crowns the beer and it finishes clean, sweet and rich with a depth of malt character. ABV is 7 percent.

“Winterfest is an all-around good food-pairing beer,” said AC Golden head brewer Jeff Nickel. “It stands up particularly well to hearty meat dishes and also pairs well with chocolate.”

AC Golden Brewing Company brews beers with 100 percent Colorado ingredients, making it the natural choice for beer drinkers who want to stay local with their choices. AC Golden also brews Colorado Native Amber Lager, Colorado Native IPL, and several specialty beers under the Colorado Native label, including: Olathe, Pilsner, Peche, Plum, and Winterfest.

AC Golden Brewing Company is located in Golden, Colo.

On Friday, November 24th, they’ll release Dead Blow Tropical Stout brewed with their proprietary Starter Coffee in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans.

“This is my favorite time of the year as we get to share some special projects with family, friends and the entire craft beer community,” said Jake Rouse, Co-Founder & CEO of Braxton Brewing Company. “The two year aged stout has been something that we’ve anxiously been waiting to share and Dead Blow brewed with Starter has been one of our most in demand projects. Now, we get to share both!”

Braxton Brewing Company received 23-year old Bourbon barrels that also aged maple syrup for a year in 2015. Last year, the Covington brewery released their Dark Charge Imperial Stout that had aged in these barrels for one year. This year, the brewery will release a very limited amount of this beer that aged in these barrels for two years. They’ll be released on Saturday, December 2nd alongside six other Dark Charge variants. The bottles will be $30, packaged in a cardboard box and limited to one bottle per person.

On Friday, November 24th the brewing company will release its popular Dead Blow Tropical Stout infused with their Starter Coffee in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans. This is the first time Braxton Brewing has packaged what is one of their most popular draft offerings.

Cans will also be available throughout the company’s distribution footprint in Northern Kentucky, CIncinnati, Dayton, Lexington, Louisville and Nashville.

“When we launched Starter Coffee, we wanted to be proud of the proprietary product and be able to serve it as both a standalone product and infuse it in Dead Blow Tropical Stout,” said Evan Rouse, Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer of Braxton Brewing Company. “This is one of our most popular beers and we’re thrilled to finally have it in cans!”

To celebrate, the brewery will be open beginning at 8am on Black Friday. The cans will be available at this time. The brewery is also hosting Holtman’s Donuts in the taproom for a Pop-up shop and will have a special, “Thanksgiving Leftovers” Firkin (infused beer). Glass mugs will be available for purchase to properly enjoy this coffee stout.

Chatham Brewing partners with CraftLink to expand beer availability in New York City

BeerPulse - Tue, 11/21/2017 - 11:27

New service enables upper Hudson Valley brewery to expand reach into five boroughs

(Chatham, NY) – Chatham Brewing, Columbia County’s first and finest brewery in New York’s upper Hudson Valley, has partnered with CraftLink to expand availability of its beer throughout New York City.

As a self-distributor, Chatham Brewing distributes directly to bars, restaurants, and retailers primarily in New York’s Hudson Valley and various points in Eastern New York. However, with such an arrangement, expansion can be prohibitive. CraftLink is an innovative service that allows craft breweries either in New York City or in Upstate to self-ship or work with a third-party shipping source.

As an award-winning brewery that has been lauded with the Mathew Vassar Cup for Best Hudson Valley Brewery three times in the past decade and in partnership with CraftLink, Chatham Brewing products can be found throughout New York City.

“We pride ourselves on our personal connection and relationships with our accounts through self-distribution,” said Tom Crowell, co-founder and owner, Chatham Brewing. “However, this model can be challenging in terms of expanding into major markets, such as New York City. With CraftLink, we’re able to save significant resources while retaining our self-distribution model.”

Prospective bars, restaurants, and retailers that would like to explore Chatham Brewing’s inventory through CraftLink are invited to sign up for free via their website, CraftLink.co.

Additional company information can be found online at ChathamBrewing.com, on Facebook (fb.com/ChathamBrewingCompany), and on Twitter (@ChathamBrewing), and on Instagram (@ChathamBrewing).
