Iron Hill Rising Sun IPA cans just released, Bedotter and Ore House cans coming soon

BeerPulse - Thu, 01/11/2018 - 15:10

Coming Soon: Three More Iron Hill Beers in Cans

The expanding craft brewery and restaurant will release three new cans early in the new year, beginning with their popular seasonal, Rising Sun IPA

(Newark, DE) – Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant will boldly usher in 2018 with the release of three canned offerings within a few months, all vividly designed and creatively packaged in 16-oz. cans, bringing ever more of the scratch brewery’s popular beers and expanding portfolio into conveniently portable packaging.

On Thursday, January 11, Iron Hill’s much-anticipated winter 2018 lineup will roll out with the release of cult favorite, Rising Sun: single-hopped IPA with the intensely tropical Sorachi Ace.

For the first time in the brewery’s 21-year history, Iron Hill will place year-round emphasis on their canning program by releasing at least one canned beer every month. Rising Sun will be the first canned offering in 2018, followed by Bedotter (February 8) and Ore House IPA (February 22), with more fresh beer coming out throughout the year.

* Rising Sun is an American IPA that is single-hopped with Japanese Sorachi Ace for unexpected notes of lemon and coconut in a light, well-balanced beer with a nimble hop kick

* Bedotter is a traditional Belgian-style golden ale with complex aroma and notes of plum, spice and banana balanced by refreshing bitterness

* Ore House IPA is a Golden IPA with a balanced hop bitterness and wonderful citrus and pine aroma and flavor, weighing in at 6.5% ABV

All three cans will feature fun new designs from Pittsburgh, PA’s Smith Brothers Agency, the latest in an ongoing series of collaborations between the brewery and the firm, including other favorites such as Crusher, Mahalo, Apollo!, Vienna Red Lager, Pig Iron Porter, Pumpkin Ale and Oktoberfest.

The design project was an intensely collaborative process, with both creative teams delving deep into the history of the Iron Hill brand and designing each label to perfectly suit the top-notch grains and juicy hops inside the can.

* The Rising Sun can embraces the Japanese Sorachi Ace recipe and was inspired by the iconic Japanese woodblock prints from the 1800s. The sun evokes the lightness of the liquid inside, with the crashing wave representing a slight hop kick; together, the symbols show how perfectly balanced the beer is. (Click here to view the label for Rising Sun)

* Bedotter is a Belgian Tripel and the word translates to “trickster” in Flemish. The use of a jester on this can depicts both the playful nature of the beer and origin of the word. Iron Hill’s jester is precariously balancing three ales, showing the beer’s balance of fruity flavors and notes of yeast, while patterns of malt grains dance in the background on festive circus tents.

* Ore House IPA is one of six beers in Iron Hill’s Signature Series. All signature beers have a linear sketch of the brewing process wrapped around the can, with a colored band around the bottom alluding to the flavor profile. Each can is stamped with the autograph of one of Iron Hill’s head brewers.

About Iron Hill… Founded by home brewers Kevin Finn and Mark Edelson and restaurateur Kevin Davies in Newark, DE in 1996, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant has blossomed from one restaurant and brewery to 12 locations across the mid-Atlantic region, including Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. Each brewpub has their own craft kitchen and scratch brewery, allowing individual chefs and brewers the creativity to pair the freshest ingredients with the highest quality grains and hops. For 21 years, Iron Hill has held beer at the heart of everything they do, and their passion has been roundly rewarded: their beers have won 47 medals from the Great American Beer Festival and another 30 medals at the World Beer Cup.

Braxton Labs Bourbon Barrel-Aged Oatmeal Stout is brewery’s first BA beer in bottles

BeerPulse - Thu, 01/11/2018 - 13:54

(Newport, KY) – Dedicated to innovation, Braxton Labs is excited to release its first barrel-aged beer in bottles. On Saturday, January 20th, the brewery will release a Bourbon Barrel Aged Oatmeal Stout infused with Carabello Coffee Tandem Espresso. The 11.7% ABV beer will be available in 500ml bottles beginning at 11am.

“We are incredibly excited to release our first barrel aged project at Braxton Labs. The beer turned out fantastic and we couldn’t be happier to use barrels and coffee from our friends in Newport,” said Zac Boehnke, Lead Innovation Brewer at Braxton Brewing Company. “We plan to continue to release unique and flavorful barrel aged products – we are filling more and more barrels every month – and think that this barrel aged Oatmeal Stout with Coffee is going to get us off to a great start.”

This project was intended to highlight the collaborative environment in our local Northern Kentucky community. The beer spent 6 months aging in freshly dumped New Riff OKI Bourbon barrels. New Riff is Braxton Labs neighbor in Newport, Kentucky. Opened in 2014, New Riff’s story is a new take on the old, bringing new energy and influence to the Kentucky bourbon landscape.

After aging in the OKI Bourbon Barrels, the beer continued its local journey by being infused with 2 lbs per barrel of Carabello Coffee Tandem Espresso beans. The bold coffee flavor compliments the notes of vanilla, chocolate and oak. The Espresso beans were sourced and roasted by Carabello Coffee in Newport, Kentucky.

Perfect for the winter season, the bottles will be $7.99 for one bottle or $29.99 for four. In a very limited quantity, they’ll be released this Saturday, January 20th at 11am in Braxton Labs’ taproom.

“Our relationship with New Riff has been great from the start,” said Evan Rouse, Chief Product Officer at Braxton Brewing Company. “Being such close neighbors allows us to utilize their freshly dumped barrels as fresh as possible. The bourbon and oak barrel characteristic shines through and mends really well with the base beer and coffee addition. We are really happy with how this came out.”

Terrapin Luau Krunkles, dubbed a fan favorite, moves to year-round lineup

BeerPulse - Thu, 01/11/2018 - 10:18

(Athens, GA) – Terrapin Beer Co. adds Luau Krunkles Passion Fruit-Orange-Guava IPA to the Year-Round Lineup for 2018.

Luau Krunkles is a fruited IPA inspired by fruit juice famous in the state of Hawaii, and named for Krunkles, the greatest IPA brewer you’ve never heard of. Originally, Luau Krunkles was featured in the IPA Survival Kit in 2016 as part of Terrapin’s Krunkles series. After it was replaced in the IPA Survival kit by Panama Krunkles in mid-2017, the beer made a limited release appearance in 6-packs.

Now, due to popular demand (and some encouragement from the Terrapin staff), the beer will be joining Terrapin’s Year-Round offerings that reach full distribution: Hopsecutioner, Hi-5, RecreationAle, Good to Gose, and Sound Czech Pilsner.

Who is Krunkles? He’s a fictitious brewer who travels the world making creative IPAs. Other Krunkles offerings from Terrapin in the past have included Captain Krunkles, Dr. Krunkles, and others. Read more about the man, the myth, and the legend at www.krunkles.com

ABOUT TERRAPIN BEER CO:

Terrapin Beer Co. began as a daydream between founders John Cochran and Spike Buckowski, who brewed and released their first beer in 2002. Inspired by the creative culture of Athens, the brewery’s home, Terrapin continues to produce unique beers year after year.

Whether you’re joining us for a brewery tour at our tasting room, drinking a Hopsecutioner at your favorite watering hole, sipping some Hi-5 on your back porch, or enjoying a RecreationAle after a long day on the trail, we hope you appreciate the dedication we’ve put into our beers.

Brewers Association Board of Directors announces 2018 board appointments

BeerPulse - Thu, 01/11/2018 - 09:48

At-large appointees Larry Horwitz, Jose Mallea increase small brewer representation

(Boulder, CO) — The board of directors of the Brewers Association (BA)—the not-for-profit trade group dedicated to promoting and protecting America’s small and independent craft brewers—is pleased to announce its 2018 at-large appointments.

Larry Horwitz, brewmaster at Four String Brewing (Columbus, OH) and Jose Mallea, co-owner of Biscayne Bay Brewing (Miami, FL) were appointed by the BA board of directors to join the 2018 board as at-large representatives. They replace outgoing at-large representatives Tom Dargen (Gordon Biersch) and Scott Metzger (Freetail Brewing Co.) and will each serve a two-year term.

“With the craft brewing community continuing to grow to more than 6,000 small and independent craft brewers across the country, it is imperative for the board to continue to reflect the interests of brewers of all sizes and ensure that even the smallest voices are heard,” said Rob Tod, board chair, Brewers Association. “In the face of many exciting opportunities and challenges, this is a dynamic time to be a small and independent brewer. I look forward to working alongside our new colleagues to continue making this a great industry, both for those who work in it and the beer lovers who get to enjoy it.”

The Board guides the strategic direction of the Brewers Association and governs the activities of the professional division of the BA, as well as the American Homebrewers Association, Brewers Publications and BA events including the Great American Beer Festival®, Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America® and SAVOR℠.

“Increased representation from some of our smallest members helps ensure the BA is offering tangible services and benefits for businesses at all stages of development,” said Bob Pease, president and CEO, Brewers Association. “The support and guidance from our board members is crucial as we continue to promote and protect the craft brewing landscape on behalf of all of our members.”

Horwitz and Mallea will join newly elected brewpub representatives Tim Brady of Whetstone Station (Brattleboro, VT) and Julie Verratti of Denizens Brewing (Silver Spring, MD) when the new board term begins on February 21, 2018.
