TRVE Brewing imports The Commons, more Burial Beer, releases collaboration brews

BeerPulse - Wed, 02/22/2017 - 13:02

[Press Release:]

(Denver, CO) – What began as simply importing and distributing Burial Beer Co. for last year’s Great American Beer Festival, TRVE Brewing Co. has also agreed to act as the Colorado distribution partner for The Commons Brewery of Portland, Oregon.

The Commons, known for their yeast-forward, sessionable beers, is an apt addition to TRVE’s own distribution portfolio of approachable beers. “We’re extremely excited about this relationship,” said TRVE Brewing founder Nick Nunns. “During the Craft Brewers Conference of 2015 we made visits to The Commons almost daily. They stunned us with the quality of the beer they’re producing, and now we get to help introduce these great beers to beer drinkers in our home state.”

TRVE will also be bringing in another shipment of beers from Burial Beer Co. of Asheville, North Carolina, to coincide with the releases of their two collaborations. The first will be Ritual Knife, a Black Braggot brewed with honey and Colorado malt from Troubador Maltings, and aged in brandy barrels. The second, brewed at The Acid Temple, is a Dark Mixed Culture ale brewed with malt from Riverbend Malt House of Asheville, NC, and aged in barrels from Laws Whiskey House of Denver, CO.

TRVE Brewing is slated to receive shipments from The Commons and Burial Beer in early March. Tuesday, March 21st will mark Denver’s introduction to The Commons by way of a mini tap-takeover at their tasting room, followed by distribution to a limited number of accounts in the Denver area. Burial will be taking over the taps at TRVE on Thursday, March 23rd with another night sure to excite Colorado beer fans.

ABOUT COMMONS BREWERY

The Commons Brewery crafts small batch approachable and balanced European-inspired beers. The tasting room is located at 630 SE Belmont St. in Portland’s Central Eastside neighborhood. Tasting room hours are Noon to 10pm daily.

ABOUT BURIAL BEER CO.

Founded in June 2013, Beer Co. crafts Belgian-inspired ales, and bold American styles with a dedication to creativity, tradition, modernization, and preservation. Residing in and revitalizing the South Slope District of Asheville, NC, the brewery began its life as a one-barrel system that grew to a ten-barrel In just over a year. Summer 2016 will bring a new wave of expansion and revitalization as Burial Beer Co. expands again to a to a second location, the “Forestry Camp,” a twenty-barrel production brewery, urban farm, locally purveyed restaurant and two-story tasting room in South Asheville.

ABOUT TRVE BREWING CO.

TRVE Brewing Co. was founded in the historic Baker neighborhood of Denver, Colorado on the summer solstice of 2012. Since its inception, TRVE has been a staple of the Denver brewing scene focusing on sessionable and crushable beers presented through the filter of a heavy metal aesthetic. TRVE has set itself apart from the typical experience found in the craft beer community with a wholly unique taproom, in which their original three barrel system resides. In the spring of 2015, TRVE began brewing at the Acid Temple – a ten barrel production facility dedicated to mixed-culture fermentation and experimentation.

Yonkers Brewing Co. hires Dave Hartmann to take over brewmaster role

BeerPulse - Wed, 02/22/2017 - 04:00

[Press Release:]

(Yonkers, NY) – Yonkers Brewing Co. announced today that 25-year brewing veteran Dave Hartmann is taking the reins as Brewmaster for the company. Along with his expertise and knowledge Hartmann brings recipes that have won numerous awards at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF), the World Beer Cup and other festivals and competitions. The renewed focus on bringing great beer to Yonkers and beyond is a key component of the company’s 2017 success strategy.

“I saw a huge opportunity with Yonkers Brewing and it was the perfect time to join the team,” said Hartmann. “When I first met with team YBC their passion for the city, for the craft and for growing the business was exactly what I was looking for.”

When he graduated from the UC Davis Master Brewers Program in 1994, Hartmann already had brewing experience under his belt. After working six years with then startup Empire Brewing Company (Syracuse, NY), Hartmann joined Long Trail Brewing Company in 2009, eventually becoming their Brewmaster in 2011.

Yonkers Brewing Co. is currently growing their wholesale business, adding four new sales people and a sales director in addition to the new Brewmaster. “Dave brings award winning knowledge and a passion for the craft; and as we enter the next chapter of the business I am confident that Dave will be a big part of our growth,” said BrewEO John Rubbo.

“Trading in 135,000 barrels per year for a projected 4,000 is a big change, but our relationship with Two Roads allows us to perfect the core brews while creating fun and innovative limited time offerings on the smaller in house system,” said Hartmann.

YBC uses respected contract brewer Two Roads Brewing for brewing and bottling their Yonkers Lager, Yonkers IPA and Shower Time Pale Ale. While the core beers are done in big batches, the YBC tasting room’s small system allows the brewers to get creative, producing styles such as Double IPA, Imperial Porter, Smoked Marzen, Sours and more.

At YBC, we want to connect the people with our beer to make the best experience possible. We will host our big reveal party, open to the public, on March 31st, featuring Dave’s limited time offering brews. For more information on the party, visit www.yonkersbrewing.com.

About Yonkers Brewing Co. Born and bred to brew in Yonkers, a city with a rich history and significant inventions, a city that inspired co-founders John Rubbo and Nick Califano to dream big. Every beer is created with pride and ambition, knowing the evolution of the company enriches the already wonderful story of Yonkers. The resilient commitment to honor, innovation, and investment in their company—and their hometown—can be found in every sip.

Taste the innovation and sip on specialty and limited release beers exclusive to our tasting room. With a robust lineup of styles, you can pair the experience with a behind-the-scenes tour of our facility on the Yonkers waterfront. Explore the enjoyable brews, food, and culture hub that is Yonkers Brewing Co.
