Saint Arnold Dry Hopped White Noise now available in Texas and Louisiana

BeerPulse - Tue, 12/13/2016 - 09:39

[Press Release:]

(Houston, TX) – Saint Arnold Brewing Co., the oldest independent craft brewery in Texas, is releasing White Noise, a Belgian-style Witbier, as the new winter seasonal to complement the relatively mild Southern winter climate.

White Noise was originally a one-off beer created for the Free Press Summer Festival held during the height of Houston summers. The brewers decided the traditional Witbier fits the Southern winter environment better than heavier beers. “As we were thinking about our winter seasonal, we realized our winter temperature is similar to a summer climate in other parts of the country,” says Brewing Operations Manager Stephen Rawlings. “What better way to complement Texas winters than to have a crisp, citrusy, Belgian-style Witbier!”

The new seasonal is a traditional Witbier based on the Celis White recipe with healthy amounts of coriander, orange peel, and some oats for a little extra body. The nose is citrus, spices and pine with a light banana. For this version, the brewers dry-hop it with Citra hops. The citrus of the orange peel blends nicely with the citrus from the hops and the coriander creates liveliness on the finish.

White Noise is now available on draft and in 12 oz. bottles and cans in Texas and Louisiana.

Original Gravity: 1.049
Final Gravity: 1.009
Alcohol: 5.3%
Bitterness: 26.6 IBU

The following events are planned for the release of White Noise:
Saint Arnold White Noise Bishop’s Barrel Nos. 12 and 16, Pumpkinator 2013 and 2016, and Christmas Ale Movie Night at Stuttgarden Tavern, Galveston, Wednesday, December 14 at 7:30pm
Saint Arnold White Noise, Christmas Ale and Endeavour Ugly Sweater and Bingo Party at Big Hops – The Bridge, San Antonio, Thursday, December 15 at 7:00PM
Saint Arnold White Noise at The Whip-In, Austin, Friday, December 16 at 9:00PM
Saint Arnold White Noise at Southern Goods, Houston, Tuesday, December 20 at 6:00PM
Saint Arnold White Noise, 5 O’ Clock Pils and Icon Red Tap Takeover at Grain to Glass, San Antonio, Wednesday, December 21 at 6:00PM

Stone, Ardent Craft Ales, Hardywood Park collaborate on Give Me Stout or Give Death

BeerPulse - Tue, 12/13/2016 - 09:21

[Press Release:]

(Richmond, VA) – The fiery quest for independence from the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia rings long after Patrick Henry once stood addressing the city of Richmond in 1775. Three local brewers, Stone Brewing Co., Ardent Craft Ales and Hardywood Park Craft Brewery have bound together alongside His Excellency, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe delivering a daring proclamation: Give Me Stout or Give Me Death. Stirred to join the cry for resistance against the tyrannical oppression of industrial beer, the teams brewed this bold assertion with locally grown raspberries and blackberries to rally craft beer fans beginning this week.

[Check out the impressive online Stone Brewing selection at one of our e-retail partners, Holiday Wine Cellar.]

“If we wish to brew free, if we mean to retain our identity and preserve the privilege of access to independent craft beer, we must recognize it is a group effort,” proclaimed Greg Koch, Stone Brewing executive chairman & co-founder in a joyful cry of freedom and independence. “Consider this aggressively hopped imperial stout a testament to our passion and unwillingness to settle or sell out! I know not what course others may take; but for me, give me independently brewed stout, or give me death!”

Newcomers to the region, Stone Brewing hosted the collaboration, welcoming two of the city’s most esteemed breweries and brewing with inspiration from Virginia’s craft beer-loving Governor, Terry McAuliffe. Stone is known for its assertive, hop-forward beers and Give Me Stout or Give Me Death lives up to the brewery’s storied reputation. Pouring deep, dark brown, the 9.5% ABV stout is complex and full-bodied with a nice complement of fruit, malt and hops. The blackberries and raspberries provide a sweetness to start, followed by fruit tartness that nicely balances the chocolate and nutty characters of the malts. Belma hops have a berry and citrus character when used late in the brewing process, which complement the Virginia-grown berries, making for an assertive bitterness on the finish alongside the warm flavors of roasted malt.

“With nearly 160 craft breweries, Virginia’s craft beer industry is booming and thanks to partnerships like this, we can continue to share the Virginia craft beer story not only up and down the East Coast, but across the U.S.,” said Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. “Stone Brewing has built an incredible operation here that is already benefiting the City of Richmond’s economy and its quality of life. Now with its first collaboration with local mainstays, Ardent Craft Ales and Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, Stone has created an excellent platform for future partnerships with the Virginia craft beer industry. It was a great honor to contribute to the production of this stout that touts both the history of our Commonwealth and its rich agricultural offerings, and an even greater honor to drink it!”

Give Me Stout or Give Me Death is the debut special release of Stone Brewing – Richmond and the first collaboration hosted at the new brewery, which began production last summer. Distribution will be limited, with a second collaboration from the same fierce team Give Me IPA or Give Me Death releasing nationally in February.

Just as Patrick Henry’s cry for resistance was preserved for years to come, Give Me Stout or Give Me Death may be enjoyed immediately or cellared in remembrance of history in the making.

QUICK FACTS
Name: Stone Give Me Stout or Give Me Death
Web: StoneBrewing.com/givemestout
Stats: 9.5% ABV, 94 IBUs
Availability: 22-ounce bottles and draft, beginning December 12
Hop Varieties: Belma and Nugget
National Distribution: AR, AL, DC, DE, GA, IN, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, NH, NY, PA, RI, VA and at CA Stone Brewing locations only
Find Beer: find.stonebrewing.com

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Deep, dark brown with a brown head of foam.
Aroma: Roasted malts and dark chocolate followed by berries with hints of black walnuts.
Taste: It starts with a bit of sweetness from the blackberries and raspberries to accompany the roasted malts. The berries come through more in the middle with a bit of fruit tartness. The finish is roasted malt with an assertive bitterness.
Palate: This is a complex, full bodied beer with a nice complement of fruit, malt and hops. It has enough sweetness and a hint of tart fruitiness to balance out the hops.
Overall: Team Stone along with Hardywood Park Craft Brewery and Ardent Craft Ales wanted to make a hop forward stout with local malts and fruit. Raspberries and blackberries were chosen because of how well they complement the roasted, chocolate and nutty characters of the malts. Belma hops were chosen because of the berry and citrus character they add when used late in the brewing process. We are super stoked to be part of the Richmond brewing scene and we’ve made a fantastic beer with our brewing friends in RVA and His Excellency the Governor of Virginia!

MadTree Brewing sets grand opening date for new ‘2.0’ brewery and taproom

BeerPulse - Mon, 12/12/2016 - 20:42

[Press Release:]

(Cincinnati, OH) – MadTree Brewing announced today the date for the Grand Opening of their new state-of-the-art ‘2.0’ brewery, taproom, beer garden, and private event space. Just over a year ago, they began the project to renovate the former RockTenn building, an obsolete brownfield manufacturing facility, located at 3301 Madison Road. They will celebrate the opening of the new location at 3301 Madison Road in conjunction with their annual Winter Bonanza anniversary party on Saturday, February 11, 2017.

“Seeing this dream become a reality still blows my mind,” said MadTree Brewing co-founder, Kenny McNutt. “Four years ago, before we opened, we couldn’t even remotely imagine doing something like this. It’s an honor to be able to invite the community that built this to share in the celebration.”

Guests can expect a full lineup of current MadTree beers along with many fan favorites from the past. Other breweries from around the region and the country will be on-hand offering beers not usually found in this market. There will be live music plus food trucks and restaurants from the Cincinnati area on-site to keep stomachs full. Additional details about the event will be shared in the coming weeks.

MadTree invested over $18M constructing the new complex, immediately bringing more than 50 jobs to the City of Cincinnati with plans to create 40 more jobs over the next three years.

With Chanukah around the corner, what better way to kick off the month of December then with a truly collaborative beer between Shmaltz Brewing and one of the East Coast’s most beloved beer bars Barcade for a never-attempted-before pastrami inspired beer. Pastrami Pils will be available exclusively at Barcade locations with launch events taking place on the following dates: Jersey City, NJ (Dec. 8), Philadelphia, PA (Dec. 10), New Haven, CT (Dec. 15), Brooklyn, NY (Dec. 16), and New York City (Jan. 14, 2017: National Pastrami Day). Pastrami Pils is available on draft only.

Pastrami Pils summons savory sensations reminiscent of your favorite pastrami sandwich. Shmaltz Head Brewer Richie Saunders brews the beer with caramel, Munich and Pilsner malts to provide light, toasted bread flavors complete with caraway seeds for the complete rye bread experience. To provide the best pastrami flavors, he took a pinch of kosher salt, a dash of pepper, and some smoke to wrap together the best pastrami characters. With no pastrami sandwich complete without fresh horseradish, he had to add that to the beer.

“Look for a clean golden beer with a fluffy white head that will give off the aromas of a fresh, yet cold pastrami sandwich,” says Saunders. “The flavor of the beer will be crisp and drinkable with a just a touch of heat from the horseradish while welcoming notes of spice from the caraway. As a perfect meal in a glass, you can have more than one before you feel full!”

Paul Kermizian, CEO and Co-Founder Barcade, adds, “We’re very excited to debut our latest collaborative beer, Pastrami Pils. Barcade has been doing this exclusive beer series since 2010 and we’ve been fortunate enough to partner with many of our favorite breweries on some adventurous and very weird beers. Shmaltz has been brewing really great, inventive styles for years and so they were a perfect fit for us to partner with on something as unusual as this. Although we initially wanted to brew a beer with actual pastrami, they smartly convinced us that they could pull off the flavors of pastrami without actually using it. Everyone is probably better off with this version!”

Jeremy Cowan, Founder and Owner of Shmaltz Brewing, comments, “Pastrami is my birthright. Beer is my passion and 20 years of my life and career. Barcade has been the home of so many great Shmaltz Brewing bashes and casual hangouts — one of our very favorite craft beer homes! The perfect pairing for our first ever custom recipe at the new brewery. As the good book says, kinda, ‘Eat, Drink and be Merry for tomorrow we shall… have to go to work — and do it all over again.’ Lucky us – L’Chaim!”

Stop in to a Barcade location near you to satiate your mouthwatering appetite for a delicious new creation, Pastrami Pils.

About Barcade
Barcade is a combination bar and arcade with a focus on classic video games and American craft beer. There are locations in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Connecticut, owned by four friends: Paul Kermizian, Pete Langway, and brothers Kevin and Scott Beard.

The original Barcade was opened in 2004 in a former metal shop on Union Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. At the time of the opening, Kevin and Scott were working in graphic design, Paul in film and television, and Pete in advertising. Paul had just completed directing the feature film “American Beer,” a road trip documentary profiling the American craft beer industry, and the friends were spending time drinking craft beer and playing the classic 1980’s video games that lined the walls of Paul’s Williamsburg loft.

Those beer and game filled nights inspired the group to open a neighborhood bar centered on American craft beer and classic video games. They quit their day jobs, maxed out their credit cards and began work on Barcade. The friends did most of the construction themselves, keeping the look of the warehouse and garage that the space had been, and the bar opened in the fall of 2004. The company registered a federal trademark in 2007 for the name Barcade.

They expanded in 2011, opening two new locations; one in downtown Jersey City and another in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. In 2014, Barcade opened its fourth and fifth locations, both in Manhattan, on West 24th Street in Chelsea and on St. Mark’s Place in the East Village. Barcade’s sixth location was opened in New Haven, CT in the spring of 2016.

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.
