Squatters Tempest-Tost Wit brewed to benefit the Utah Refugee Center

BeerPulse - Mon, 02/27/2017 - 14:28

[Press Release:]

(Salt Lake City, UT) – Squatters Craft Beers, to show solidarity with our refugee and immigrant communities, has brewed a Middle Eastern Wit beer featuring ingredients indigenous to some of the countries singled out by President Trump’s recent travel ban. All proceeds from the sale of the beer will benefit the Utah Chapter of the International Rescue Committee, an organization that supports refugees in realizing their dream of leading self-sufficient and fulfilling lives.

Beginning March 1st and until the kegs run dry, Tempest-Tost Wit will be available at all Squatters and Wasatch Brew Pubs, as well as the West Side Tavern. Squatters’ brewmaster Jason Stock and brewer Conor Papineau have crafted this unfiltered wheat beer utilizing green cardamom, sweet orange peel and a healthy dose of torrified wheat. The beer is designed to reflect the complexity and nuance of the regions from which the ingredients originate.

From the melting pot to the brewing kettle, the story of Salt Lake Brewing Company – like most American stories – is one of immigrants. It was in the spirit of this legacy that Wasatch Sugar House server Rich Vosepka hatched the idea of brewing a beer to help our local refugee population. “Focusing on the two things that we do best – brewing beer and creating an environment where all feel welcome and safe – is a win-win for everyone,” says Vosepka.

“This promotion speaks directly to the core values of our company,” adds Chief Operating Officer Doug Hofeling. “Tempest-Tost Wit not only gives our guests the opportunity to try a unique and delicious beer, but also contribute to a truly worthwhile cause.”

The name for the beer comes from Emma Lazarus’ poem “The New Colossus,” which serves as an enduring reminder that we were all strangers once:

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

About Salt Lake Brewing Co. (Squatters Craft Beers and Pubs & Wasatch Brewery and Pubs)
In 1986, Greg Schirf opened Utah’s first microbrewery, Wasatch Beers and Brewpub in the resort town of Park City. A few years later Jeff Polychronis and Peter Cole founded Squatters Pub Brewery Salt Lake’s original brewpub in 1989. The company currently operates five brewpubs and a wine and ale house. In 2000, Squatters Craft Beers and Wasatch Brewery merged their microbrewery operations for draft and bottle production, creating Utah Brewers Cooperative. To date, Squatters and Wasatch have brought home 17 World Beer Cup Awards and 31 Great American Beer Festival Medals. In 2010, Utah Brewers Cooperative received the prestigious U.S. Mid-size Brewery of the Year award from the Brewers Association.

SHE’BREW Beer to return with new recipe, marks 100th anniv. of Women’s Suffrage in NY

BeerPulse - Mon, 02/27/2017 - 14:04

[Press Release:]

Shmaltz Brewing Partners with Planned Parenthood and Pink Boots Society to Raise Funds for the Community Non-Profit Organizations

(Clifton Park, NY) – Shmaltz Brewing Company ramps up for a new special release, a completely new Double IPA recipe for SHE’BREW Beer® in celebration of International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day (IWCBD; March 8, 2017). As Shmaltz turns 21 this year — the historical age at which citizens were granted the right to vote before it changed to 18 (circ. 1946) — the Upstate New York brewery commemorates the 100th Anniversary for women’s suffrage in New York State with the brewing of SHE’BREW Beer®. In the coming weeks, the sisters of Shmaltz will come from far and wide to brew a juicy, complex Double IPA with Head Brewer Richie Saunders, brewing supervisor Chris “Duffy” Dufrain, and brewer Annalise Ellis. In April 2017, SHE’BREW Beer® will nationally roll out in 4-packs and draft to the 35 states within Shmaltz’s distribution network.

It was just 100 years ago when women garnered the right to vote in Shmaltz’s home state of New York. In a political climate like today, where pink pussyhats are a common accessory for the modern woman, we must not forget that strong female voices weren’t always accepted. In 1917, women of all New York counties marched, picketed, and protested to have their voices heard. These ladies had chutzpah! Women such as Alice Paul, leader of the National Woman’s Party, and Carrie Lane Chapman Catt, president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, picketed the White House and went door to door for over a year collecting signatures of women who demanded the right to vote.

Having the right to vote, women’s health, and all human rights is as American as apple pie. To go along with this theme, Shmaltz invited Patti Wilcox and Deb Underwood from Awestruck Cider in Sydney, NY to help with the project. Awestruck will be making a companion cider utilizing some of the same hops that will be in the beer.

Shmaltz will donate a portion of proceeds from SHE’BREW Beer® sales to https://www.plannedparenthood.org/ and the https://www.pinkbootssociety.org/ scholarship fund, a global non-profit that aims to advance women in the beer business.

The official photoshoot for the new SHE’BREW Beer® label commenced, appropriately, the day after President’s Day at Shmaltz Brewing on Tuesday, February 21. The Shmaltz staff was joined by multiple women from Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson, including Director of Communications Emma Corbett and Public Affairs Director Beth LeGere, Jacki Hannon and Laura Burghdurg from Eagle Beverage, Stephanie Martini from Mohawk Taproom, Heidi Knoblauch from The Plumb Bar, Brooke Taney from Slidin’ Dirty, Janis Benincasa from SUNY New Paltz Benjamin Center, Stacy Manna from Saratoga Eagle, Patti Wilcox from Awestruck Cider, and Rachel Mabb from The Ruck in Troy. Label artwork and additional details regarding SHE’BREW Beer® will soon be released.

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.

GoodLife Tie One On up next in “Sustainable Session Series”

BeerPulse - Mon, 02/27/2017 - 13:42

[Press Release:]

(Bend, OR) – As seasons turn, it’s time for GoodLife Brewing to announce the newest member of the “Sustainable Session Series” which is called Tie One On Session Ale. When you’re getting ready to Tie One On and cast that fly, remember how much we owe to our wild, forested watersheds. They’re the backdrop to endless GoodLife adventure. They’re also our natural born purifiers, transforming snow and rain into fresh, crystalline water. Water that makes seriously tasty and distinctly Bend beer. The Pacific Northwest is home to some of Earth’s finest water, and to salute the source, we’re donating 1% of sales to our Sustainable Session Fund. Because great beer in the great outdoors means going with the flow.

Tie One On is a light bodied, Alt-style beer with a bite. It’s malt forward with hints of dark toasted caramel that pair well with an Earthy hop backbone. Using Mt. Hood and Goldings hops, they’ve created a warm, nutty aroma that can be picked up on the nose. With an inviting mahogany color and 4.5% ABV, Tie One On pairs perfectly with grilled foods and decadent desserts.

Tie One On Session Ale will be available in 6-pack cans and draft (1/2 BBL’s and 1/6 BBL’s) in Oregon, but only available in draft in Washington, Idaho, and Vermont until May 31st when Wildland Session Ale returns!

For the “Sustainable Session Series,” we’ve teamed up with three organizations to brew three different beers with 1% of total sales benefiting each organization. Wildland Session Ale will be available June 1st.

He worked at several breweries, including Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis, before settling in Seattle in 1889. The following year he opened...

Silver City Tropic Haze IPA now available

BeerPulse - Mon, 02/27/2017 - 10:06

[Press Release:]

(Bremerton, WA) – With a movement consisting of nearly five-thousand-strong breweries, each cranking out dozens of recipes, one could believe that every possible style had been explored. Ales, lagers, and the ambiguous in-between; light malts, dark malts, adjuncts, fruits, and spices- we’ve barrel-aged it all, soured it all, served it on nitro, served it on cask, and pushed it through a randall. Who would have known that the latest innovation would be derived via a return to minimalism, and re-imagining how beer’s most basic ingredients are utilized?

Recent years have seen the dawn of what many believe to be an emerging new category of India Pale Ale- the “Hazy” or “Juicy” IPA. A mysteriously opaque brew that visually evokes comparisons more in line with Sunny D than your typical ale, controversy has erupted as to whether or not this brew genuinely deserves to be classified as its own style. As with with any component of popular culture, brews such as these have gained their share of elitist dissenters, decrying the “Haze Craze” as the headlines speak of it, but honestly we don’t give a rat’s ass about rhetorical nonsense, because when executed properly*, the beer is freaking delicious.

*Note: Rumor on the streets has it that certain brewers have attempted to “cheat” the haze by adding baking flower or by leaving an undesirable amount of yeast in suspension. We refer not to these.

A symptom of this supreme deliciousness, beers of this “style” are exceptionally difficult to find, particularly in the Pacific Northwest, where the brewing of these beers is largely uncharted territory. In order to experience the acclaimed and coveted hazy, juicy IPA, the band of brewers at Silver City Brewery explored back-channel beer trading avenues until a thriving collection had been assembled for tasting. We fell in love. A tongue-punch of intense fruit flavor with a formidable yet silky body & mouthfeel, and a remarkably clean finish.This type of beer was unlike anything the crew had experienced. As each can of the stylistic front-runners had been cracked and poured, the beer was hazy, but it was becoming pilsner-clear what we had to do.

NO BAD HAZE.

Pale malt, flaked wheat, rolled oats, and hops. Who would have known that this degree of innovation could be derived via such extreme minimalism? The haze is in the details- or in this case, the yeast. It was discovered that a specific variety of ale yeast, when in the presence of oats and wheat, blossoms into both a rich spectacle and a unique canvas in which to imbue an extraordinary degree of hop flavor & aroma. When properly finished, the resulting beer contains little to no yeast in suspension, despite its opacity.

Now that the secrets of the haze had revealed themselves, the brewers of Silver City got to work. Not content to merely emulate the existing heady chart-toppers, but to instead imagine the inspiring ways this canvas of flavor could be utilized, they dove into the top-secret chest of experimental hop samples, cold-stored deep within the brewery laboratory. After several pilot brewing sessions, one particular new hop variety (that shall not be named) absolutely screamed when combined with this newfound brewing technique. When blind-tasted, close friends and lovers of beer insisted that we had incorporated pineapple juice, mango, or orange into the hazy brew- flavor components all achieved via this extraordinary new hop. Reminiscent of getting hazed on a hot Miami beach over cool, tropical drinks, Tropic Haze India Pale Ale had come to life, in all of its flickering neon glory.

A long-gestating project, and one that we’re immensely proud to reveal, Tropic Haze India Pale Ale is finally ready to take its place in Silver City Brewery’s flagship lineup of ales, joining distinguished favorites such as Ridgetop Red Ale and Nice Day IPA. The beer will be available year-round on draft and in 6-packs of 12oz cans throughout all of Washington State and Northern Idaho, beginning with its formal release Thursday, February 24th at Silver City Brewery Taproom and Silver City Restaurant & Ale House.

TROPIC HAZE INDIA PALE ALE
A seemingly magical reaction between a specialized yeast strain, oats, wheat, and an experimental hop variety results in a blossom of wondrous, tropical fruit flavor that is a feast for the eyes as well as the palate, with a silky-smooth texture and a remarkably clean finish.

Oregon Brewers Festival celebrates 30th year milestone this summer

BeerPulse - Mon, 02/27/2017 - 09:04

[Press Release:]

(Portland, OR) – Thirty years ago, in 1988, there were a mere seven craft breweries in Oregon, and only 128 in America. All were invited to take part in the inaugural Oregon Brewers Festival , a two-day event billed as “the first gathering and exhibit of independent brewers in the United States.” This summer, the Oregon Brewers Festival will celebrate its 30th annual event; now a five-day affair, the festival will run from July 26 through July 30 at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland.

Portland – aka Beervana – is currently the #1 large metro area for beer tourism, according to Travelocity’s first Beer Tourism Index , so it’s no surprise the Oregon Brewers Festival is also a considered a destination. An estimated 80,000 people annually travel from all parts of the world to drink up what the festival has to offer.

The main festival serves 84 beers from craft breweries across the nation (each brewery serves one product). This year, the festival is reviving its popular Specialty Tent, where participating brewers send one-off kegs of rare, bold, and experimental beers. Festival attendees can try another 50+ rotating craft beers in the Specialty Tent throughout the duration of the festival.

The Oregon Brewers Festival offers a wide variety of beer styles, ranging from Belgians to braggots, cream ales to coffee beers, goses to gluten free, pales to Pilsners, radlers to reds, and saisons to stouts. The complete list of participating breweries will be announced by March 1 on the festival website . The event also features live music, food booths, craft vendors and homebrew demonstrations.

The Oregon Brewers Festival is not a ticketed event, and it is free to enter the festival grounds. In order to taste beer, the purchase of a 14 oz. souvenir tasting mug from the current year is required, which costs $7. Beer is purchased with wooden tokens, which cost $1 apiece. Patrons pay five tokens for a full mug of beer, or one token for a taste. The purchase of mugs and tokens is made on-site. The event is cash-only, with eight ATMs located on-premise.

The Oregon Brewers Festival encourages responsible drinking and urges patrons to take Tri-Met ; the MAX Light Rail has a station one block from the main festival entrance. Alternately, attendees who ride their bikes can park them for free in the Hopworks Urban Brewery secure bike corral. For those who bring a designated driver, the Crater Lake Soda Garden provides complimentary handcrafted soda (no mug purchase required). Minors, who are allowed into the event all hours when accompanied by a parent, also receive free Crater Lake Soda.

The Oregon Brewers Festival was founded in 1988 as an opportunity to expose the public to microbrews at a time when the craft brewing industry was just getting off the ground. Today, that industry has flourished, with nearly 5,000 craft breweries in America , according to the Brewer’s Association. The economic impact of the Oregon Brewers Festival on the local economy is annually more than $30 million.

Gates open at 11:30am daily, and taps are open from Noon to 9pm Wednesday through Saturday, and Noon to 7pm Sunday. For more information visit OregonBrewFest.com or follow Facebook.com/OregonBrewersFestival and @OregonBrewfest on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
