The Lost Abbey’s Duck Duck Gooze returns in 2016

BeerNews.org - Tue, 07/26/2016 - 12:07

[Press Release:]

(San Marcos, CA) – Duck Duck Gooze, The Lost Abbey’s much-anticipated blended oak-aged sour, returns to The Lost Abbey this August. A blend of 1, 2 and 3 year old beers aged in French Oak barrels, Duck Duck Gooze was first released in 2009, re-released in 2013 and now again in 2016.

“We’re more than excited to release the third version of Duck Duck Gooze.” Said Tomme Arthur, COO and Co-Founder at The Lost Abbey. “Waiting for barrels to mature over the last three years has been a journey on its own, but the finished beer proves the wait was worth it.”

Starting Tuesday, July 26th at 12pm PT, beer lovers everywhere will be able to purchase up to 6 (six) bottles of Duck Duck Gooze at $41 per bottle (plus CA sales tax). There will be a total of 600 cases available split between the two sessions (300 cases reserved per session).

As in prior online sales, selling Duck Duck Gooze online will also come with a few restrictions. The main requirement being whoever purchases Duck Duck Gooze, must also be the individual to pick up the bottles… NO EXCEPTIONS. Removing the option of proxies will help get the beer to as many people as possible and will allow a smoother pickup process. Consumers who do not pick up their bottles during their designated pick up time will surrender the bottles back to The Lost Abbey and be issued a refund. A valid ID and will be required to pick up the purchased bottles. Any duplicate sales to the same name, email or credit card will be rendered null and void.

The sessions for retrieving purchased Duck Duck Gooze will happen on Saturday, August 27th and Sunday the 28th, from 10am to 5pm at The Lost Abbey Tasting Room in San Marcos. To reiterate – if a beer is purchased and not picked up during the designated pick up session, the beer will be surrendered back to the brewery and refunded. NO PROXIES ALLOWED

Brewers Association mid-year metrics show continued growth for craft

BeerPulse - Tue, 07/26/2016 - 11:41

[Press Release:]

Brewery Count Reaches Historic High

(Boulder, CO) — Craft brewers are still growing, according to new mid-year data released by the Brewers Association (BA)—the not-for-profit trade association dedicated to small and independent American brewers. American craft beer production volume increased eight percent during the first half of the year.

“While the craft brewing industry is entering a period of maturation, most markets are not near saturation,” said Bart Watson, chief economist, Brewers Association. “As craft’s base gets larger, as with any industry, it becomes more difficult for it to grow at the same percentage rate. Yet there is still tremendous dynamism reflected in eight percent growth for craft. Production growth of small and independent craft brewers continues to be one of the main bright spots for domestic beer in the U.S. Even in a more competitive market, for the vast majority of small and independent brewers, opportunities still exist.”

As of June 30, a record high of 4,656 breweries were operating in the U.S, an increase of 917 breweries over the same time period of the previous year. Additionally, there were approximately 2,200 breweries in planning. Craft brewers currently employ an estimated 121,843 full-time and part-time workers in a variety of roles including many of manufacturing jobs, all of which contribute significantly to the U.S. economy.

“The opening rate compared to closing rate for breweries remains incredibly strong, with a historic number of breweries operating in the U.S.,” added Watson. “As long as there is growing consumer demand, beer lovers’ thirst will continue to advance the category of craft brewed beer from small and independent producers.”

Note: The data set includes the small and independent breweries that the Brewers Association anticipates being included in the 2016 data set.

Craft brewer definition: An American craft brewer is small, independent and traditional. Small: Annual production of 6 million barrels of beer or less (approximately 3 percent of U.S. annual sales). Beer production is attributed to the rules of alternating proprietorships. Independent: Less than 25 percent of the craft brewery is owned or controlled (or equivalent economic interest) by an alcoholic beverage industry member that is not itself a craft brewer. Traditional: A brewer that has a majority of its total beverage alcohol volume in beers whose flavor derives from traditional or innovative brewing ingredients and their fermentation. Flavored malt beverages (FMBs) are not considered beers.

About the Brewers Association
The Brewers Association is the not-for-profit trade association dedicated to small and independent American brewers, their beers and the community of brewing enthusiasts. The Brewers Association (BA) represents more than 70 percent of the brewing industry, and its members make more than 99 percent of the beer brewed in the U.S. The BA organizes events including the World Beer CupSM, Great American Beer Festival®, Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America®, SAVOR℠: An American Craft Beer & Food Experience, Homebrew Con, National Homebrew Competition and American Craft Beer Week®. The BA publishes The New Brewer magazine and its Brewers Publications division is the largest publisher of contemporary and relevant brewing literature for today’s craft brewers and homebrewers.
