Grovetoberfest featuring over 300 beers coming to Miami Marine Stadium on Oct. 15

BeerPulse - Thu, 09/15/2016 - 11:29

[Sponsored / Paid Press Release:]

WHAT: Craft beer lovers know that Grovetoberfest is a fun way to do some serious beer tasting of over 300 craft beers from around the world.

This year, Grovetoberfest will move slightly South to Miami Marine Stadium; a move geared towards allowing more people to experience Florida’s largest beer festival. In addition, it has upped the ante by bringing a beer connoisseur on board who has been hand-selecting some of the rarest beers available for this year’s festival. “We’re overflowing with good news. In our new home, Grovetoberfest will continue to offer local favorites and mainstream craft beers, but with a renewed focus on elite craft beers. We are working directly with the brewers to secure and reserve batches of incredibly esoteric and unique brews,” says Tony Albelo, organizer and chief sample taster for Grovetoberfest.

This year, Blackberry Farm Brewery will be pouring in the VIP area. Civil Society Brewing will also be pouring at the event, making this the first time they’ve ever poured at a Miami-Dade beer fest. In addition, for the first time ever, Grovetoberfest will be pouring Prairie, Crooked Stave, To Øl, Mikkeller, and Slim Pickins. Aficionados will delight in sampling beers in the Sunshine State-of-Mind, a collection of over 40 Florida breweries including Wynwood Brewing Company, J. Wakefield Brewing, MIA Brewing, Funky Buddha, Saltwater, Banging Banjos, Due South and Biscayne Brewing, to name a few.

The new location allows for more room and easier parking. Other aspects of the festival include the VIP Lounge, which will be hosted by Chef M from Latin House Grill. In addition, it will offer certain perks not available to the general ticket holder such as specialty brews, covered seating area and air-conditioned bathrooms. The Homebrew Pavilion will showcase special brews made by passionate beer drinkers; the Food Row will offer food for purchase and the Kitchen Lab will feature beer/food pairing demonstrations by local chefs such as Ryan Martin from 180° at the DRB, and Zeke Man from 305 Brews. As usual, a Live Music Stage will feature dance-inducing music throughout the entire day.

WHEN: Saturday Oct. 15 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.

WHERE: Miami Marine Stadium, 3501 Rickenbacker Causeway, Key Biscayne, FL 33149

TICKET INFO: For ticket information, visit www.grovetoberfest.com or call (305) 461-2700. $40 General Admission online and $45 at the gate $70 Beer Socialite Package – Includes early entrance at 3:00 p.m., commemorative glass and souvenir tote $90 VIP – This ticket offers early admittance at 2:30 p.m., access to the VIP Lounge, complimentary food, a commemorative beer glass and special selection of high-end beer available only inside the lounge

Saint Archer Citra 7 IPA now available

BeerPulse - Wed, 09/14/2016 - 14:37

[Press Release:]

(San Diego, CA) – Saint Archer Brewing Company was founded on a dedication to creativity in brewing.

That inventiveness is on full display in the release of our new Citra 7 IPA.

The new hop varietal Idaho 7 was only released to a handful of brewers. This beer breaks our IPA mold and puts the Idaho 7 and Citra hops front and center with a touch of light crystal malt. Idaho 7 was first released in 2015 as an experimental hop variety from Jackson Hop Farm in Wilder, Idaho. It possesses aromas of pungent stone fruit and citrus (apricot, orange, red grapefruit, and papaya) along with resinous notes of pine. While Idaho 7 is new on the brewing scene, Citra hops is a favorite among craft brewers for their intense citrus aroma.

CITRA 7 IPA BY THE NUMBERS
7.0% ABV
70 IBU

“We decided to brew Citra 7 IPA because BSG (Brewers Supply Group) approached us with this new variety, Idaho 7, which was available in a limited amount for 2016,” says Saint Archer Brewmaster Kim Brisson-Lutz. “After evaluating the aroma profile of this experimental hop, we chose one of our favorite hops, Citra, to compliment the hop profile and create the ultimate hop forward IPA.”

Saint Archer Brewing Company was founded on a unique strain of creative talent:

World-class brewers. Artists and musicians. Surfers, skateboarders, and snowboarders….

All coming together with passion and commitment to express our collective true love —craft beer.

We hope you taste our appreciation and gratitude in every sip.

Deschutes Brewery assigns Loveland Distributing in Central Virginia

BeerPulse - Wed, 09/14/2016 - 14:28

[Press Release:]

(Bend, OR) – Deschutes Brewery announced it will introduce its brands to the City of Richmond, and the surrounding area in the Commonwealth of Virginia beginning early November. The brewery is partnering with Loveland Distributing Co. which is headquartered in Richmond, VA. Earlier this year, Deschutes Brewery announced that Roanoke would be the site for its future East Coast brewery location, a mere 189 miles away from Richmond.

“After extensive research in Central Virginia, it became apparent that we wanted to partner with Loveland Distributing,” remarked Stacy Denbow, Eastern Regional Sales Director for Deschutes. “The Stepanian family, which owns Loveland Distributing, is in their third generation of running this organization and we share a lot of the same core values.”

Loveland Distributing will launch Deschutes Brewery’s beers later this fall including Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Black Butte Porter, Fresh Squeezed IPA, Pinedrops IPA, as well as the brewery’s award-winning winter seasonal, Jubelale, along with its Variety Packs. 

“We are thrilled to partner with the folks from Deschutes at the onset of their major brewing investment here in Virginia,” commented Mark Stepanian, Loveland Distributing’s president and CEO.  “As beer consumers continue to evolve their tastes and brand preferences, at Loveland, we seek brewing partners capable of helping us provide Richmond with local, regional and national brands of the highest quality.  Our partnership with Deschutes will give Richmond beer drinkers the option to enjoy more exceptional beers soon to be brewed here in Virginia!”

Deschutes is looking to finish off statewide distribution in Virginia in Spring 2017.

Clown Shoes announces refund program for unintentionally soured Archdruid bottles

BeerPulse - Wed, 09/14/2016 - 14:22

[Press Release:]

(Lexington, MA) – Clown Shoes Beer announced this week a refund program for unintentionally soured Archdruid bottles. More details below straight from the company blog.

***

Should we have known the Leprechauns would become irked because we created a flotilla out of ten of the tiny green clad troublemakers?

Probably.

Barrel aging has been a large part of the focus at Clown Shoes for a number of years. Our team has been vigilant and fortunate regarding quality control, experiencing almost nothing in the way of contaminated product.

Until now.

Despite testing the blended liquid in tank, with no positive results for any contaminants, a small amount of lactobacillus found its way into an unknown portion of the bottled product. We have now analyzed and seen varying degrees of souring of the product, ranging from slightly tart to medium sour. Fortunately, lactobacillus is the most common bug used to intentionally sour beers. While not what we intended, many people are enjoying Archdruid for what it has become.

The quality control processes we employ have worked to date, but we are aggressively looking into even more sophisticated ways to minimize issues in the future. It would be beyond fantastic if there was a failsafe to prevent contamination of barrel aged products. But there isn’t.

We think it’s pretty Clown Shoes to have been asked for years to make a sour beer, then to do it accidentally, most likely because we pissed off mischievous magical creatures. Hey, at least they only changed the beer into something unique and unexpected, rather than completely destroying the concept.

Anyone that has a poor experience with Archdruid, please mail a receipt or the label (which peels off easily) to:

Clown Shoes Beer
PO Box 1033
Burlington, MA 01803

Thank you for the understanding and support.

As a final thought, we recommend that you make double sure you treat the Leprechauns in your life with dignity.

Sincerely,

Gregg Berman and The Clown Shoes Team

Oskar Blues Brewery and Hotbox Roasters hook up again for Hotbox Coffee Porter

BeerPulse - Wed, 09/14/2016 - 14:00

[Press Release:]

(Longmont, CO) – Beer just got a caffeinated kick in the beans.

Oskar Blues Brewery and their in-house, coffee addiction-inspired Hotbox Roasters tag-team once again to pair roasted aromas, flavors and a frothy buzz together in Hotbox Coffee Porter.

Hotbox Coffee Porter (6.4% ABV/30 IBUs) has a malted base extracted from English and German roasted and caramel malts, and is comprised of flavors like roasted nuts, crème brûlée, cocoa and caramel. Hotbox Roasters then crashes the party and infuses potent, cold-extracted coffee from Burundian and Ethiopian beans and deals old flavors and aromas of dark plums, chocolate and hints of blueberry.

“Hotbox wake-n-roast gets us rolling in the brewhouse day in and day out.” said head of brewing operation’s Tim Mathews. “Hotbox Porter shows that beer and coffee were meant to be together. Digging in with Hotbox Roasters allowed us to develop a malt blend and a coffee blend that gel beautifully.”

Hotbox Roasters is a ColoRADo craft coffee roaster specializing in the highest quality, fair-trade coffee beans available to coffee fiends nationwide (http://hotboxroasters.com/store/). Hotbox currently offers eight different roasts from around the world and is constantly searching for premium beans to add. Hotbox Roasters cans its freshly roasted beans using the Oskar Blues & Ball Corporation Crowler™, a one-use, recyclable can that is filled and seamed right on location at the Hotbox Roasters Dock in Longmont, ColoRADo. An Oskar Blues Fooderies-driven Hotbox Roasters physical location will open at 3490 Larimer St., Denver, CO in fall 2016. This will be the first location for the Longmont-based craft coffee roaster and will open directly next to the upcoming craft casual CHUBurger location in the Denver RiNo neighborhood. Stay tuned for 12oz. cans of Nitro Cold Brew from Hotbox Roasters yet this year.

Brought to you by the original craft beer in a can, Hotbox Coffee Porter is available nationally in four-pack, 12 oz. cans and draft from September through November.

Find your next brew and brew with our Beer Finder (www.oskarblues.com/beerFinder).
