TRiNiTY Brewing coming to North Carolina through Mims Distributing Company

BeerPulse - Mon, 08/22/2016 - 18:29

[Press Release:]

(Raleigh, NC) – Mims Distributing Company, a leading wholesale beverage distributor in North Carolina, has added TRiNiTY Brewing to its portfolio of brewery partners. Based out of Colorado Springs, Colorado, the brewery opened in 2008 and is known for its “artisanal beer”—including the Seven Day Golden Sour, One Ear saison and Elektrick Cukumbahh saison.

In addition to brewing award winning barrel-aged sours, harvest saisons, and provocative beers, TRiNiTY actively reduces its carbon impact on the environment, a value that Mims Distributing Company respects highly. TRiNITY built its pub from nearly 100 percent recycled materials, and several of its beers are produced in large, wooden barrels that previously were previously used to age wines or spirits. The brewers and staff personally recycle nearly all the glass, plastic and metal waste the brewery produces, and the food compost and spent grain is donated to a local Colorado farm for re-use.

Mims Distributing shares in TRiNiTY’s passion to be sustainable. With one of the biggest independent solar panel systems that produces 38 percent of the facility’s power, two bio retention ponds, and motion activated lighting, Mims actively works to offset the energy and waste its facility creates and each employee is dedicated to recycling. A partnership between two organizations with such shared passions is a logical step.

TRiNiTY has several notable awards for its brews, including Silver Medals from the Festival of Barrel Aged Beer for its 365 Day Sour in 2014 and Red Swingline in 2014 and 2015. The Great American Beer Festival also awarded a Gold Medal in 2013 to Elektrick Cukumbahh.

The brewery’s artisanal beer will be available in North Carolina beginning early August. For more information on TRiNiTY Brewing, visit http://www.trinitybrew.com.

QUOTES:
“Being able to bring brews to challenge North Carolina’s pallet is a delight for TRiNiTY,” said Jason Yester, president of TRiNiTY Brewing. “We know Mims Distributing takes care of its partners and their products, and seeing its success with sours reinforces our decision to partner with Mims.”

“We are pleased to welcome TRiNiTY to the Mims family,” said Jeff Mims, CMO of Mims Distributing Company. “We are seeing some fantastic brews come out of TRiNiTY, and we know North Carolina beer drinkers will really enjoy these exciting beers. TRiNiTY’s love of beer paired with the company’s dedication to the environment makes the brewery an excellent partner for us; we look forward to supporting them as we introduce these brews to the market.”

Bronx Banner available in 8 and 15-pack cases and on tap beginning this week

BeerPulse - Mon, 08/22/2016 - 17:44

[Press Release:]

(The Bronx, NY) – Today, the brewery maniacally focused on doing one thing, and one thing right, announced the release of Bronx Banner, a golden easy ale. Like any banner, it’s a statement about who The Bronx Brewery is, what they represent and the borough where they brew their beer – the borough on top.

A locally-made and easy-drinking craft beer, Bronx Banner is a Kolsch-inspired ale that is brewed using Belgian pilsner and American wheat malts as well as classic Bavarian hops. Brilliantly clear-filtered, soft and perfectly balanced, the beer will be available in 8 and 15-pack cases as well as on draft lines.

A beer inspired by The Bronx, and the people within it who make stuff happen and appreciate a great taste without fluffy pretense, proceeds from Bronx Banner Ale also directly benefit the brewery’s surrounding community. 5% of proceeds of every case sold will be donated to the New York Restoration Project, a non-profit organization that makes amazing stuff happen by transforming open space in under-sourced communities for a greener, more sustainable New York City. NYRP’s latest undertaking is The Haven Project, which brings their focus along with support from The Bronx Brewery, specifically to The South Bronx. Learn more at http://nyrp.org/havenproject

ABOUT THE BRONX BREWERY
Founded on the philosophy of “doing one thing and doing it right”, in reference to their maniacal focus on pushing the boundaries of what a pale ale can be, The Bronx Brewery aims to bring the long tradition of brewing back to the borough once known for it. Craft beer with Bronx-style attitude, Delivered From Above. With the goal in mind to create the best pale ales on the East Coast, they’ve quickly gained recognition within the Northeast craft beer community and publications from The New York Times to the Wall Street Journal have covered their journey from a small startup in 2011 to their current place as one of NYC’s fastest growing craft breweries. Located at 856 East 136th Street in The Bronx, the Brewery’s Tasting Room is open seven days a week (Monday through Friday starting at 3PM and Saturday and Sunday starting at Noon).

Elysian Dayglow IPA debuts in 12oz six-pack bottles, going year-round starting 9/1

BeerPulse - Mon, 08/22/2016 - 16:33

[Press Release:]

(Seattle, WA) – Elysian Brewing Company announces the year round availability of Dayglow IPA in 22 oz bottles, on draft and new 12 oz six-packs in select US markets.

First brewed as part of Elysian’s Manic IPA series, which includes Hubris Huge IPA and Breakbeat IPA, Dayglow IPA (7.4% ABV) is packed with the insistent beat of hops featuring juicy pineapple and tropical fruit flavors and aromas. It drips with tropical, sunshiny Mosaic hops and twinkles with hints of El Dorado and Centennial hops. A touch of wheat hazes the malt bill a bit around the edges, and the IBUs are set in the mid-sixties.

“Dayglow made its Manic IPA series debut last year in 22 oz bottles for a limited time, and due to popular demand, returns year round in 12 oz six-packs,” said Head Brewer Josh Waldman. “When the growers first brought us Mosaic hops, we knew we could make a distinct and sharp IPA with them. Fruit forward, with an intense hop pungency from a mix of Mosaic, El Dorado, and Centennial hops layered over pale, dextrapils, and wheat malts, Dayglow focuses on heavy plum, peach, and berry aromas amid that hint of wheat.”

Dayglow IPA will be available year round beginning September 1st in select US markets and on draft at select restaurants and bars. Seattleites can also find Dayglow IPA at Elysian’s locations, Capitol Hill Public House, Tangletown, Elysian Fields, and Elysian Bar.

Beer Advent Calendar by The Thirst Amendment now available on Kickstarter through 9/25

BeerPulse - Mon, 08/22/2016 - 16:01

[Sponsored Press Release:]

Why are craft beer lovers getting excited about Christmas already? The Beer Advent Calendar campaign on Kickstarter combines craft beer drinking with the fun of an advent calendar. Join in the beer lover’s holiday tradition for the 2016 Christmas Season and become a backer before September 25th.

DIY Beer Advent Calendars have been around for years, but until now you couldn’t participate in the tradition unless you built your own.  “We wanted to make this holiday tradition more accessible to everyone. Our goal was to create a product that everyone could enjoy and use,” says Elaina, co-founder of The Thirst Amendment.

Similar to a traditional chocolate advent calendar, a Beer Advent Calendar is a box in which 24 beers are hidden under 24 numbered flaps. Each day from December 1st through December 24th a single numbered flap is opened to reveal a beer for you to enjoy on each of the 24 days in anticipation of Christmas. Even if you’ve never heard of a traditional chocolate advent calendar, you’ll still enjoy how The Thirst Amendment has improved on it!

Solemn Oath Brewery appoints Eric Hobbs VP

BeerPulse - Mon, 08/22/2016 - 13:40

[Press Release:]

(Naperville, IL) – Solemn Oath Brewery announced today the appointment of Eric Hobbs as Vice President of the company. In the new leadership role, Eric will oversee all sales for the growing brewery, which recently announced statewide ambitions by 2018.

“Eric is a proven leader who understands the industry, and most importantly, this market,” says John Barley, President of Solemn Oath Brewery. “Our operations team is making world-class beer, we recently made a massive infrastructure investment, and now we’re building the team that’s going to help our company take the next step forward. We’ve been ready for it, but now we have the guy to help get us there.”

Previously, Eric served as President and Co-founder of Penrose Brewing Company in Geneva, Illinois. There, he oversaw operations, sales and marketing, and led a ten-person team charged with managing the brewery’s wholesale and retail relations. Prior to that, Hobbs was High-End Regional Manager for Anheuser-Bush InBev, overseeing its craft and import portfolio of beers for a five state region in the midwest. Additionally, he spent five years at Goose Island Brewing Company, where he served as Market Manager and Key Account Manager.

At Solemn Oath, Eric will lead and execute an aggressive, new sales strategy aimed to grow its statewide footprint. Currently, the brewery markets and sells its portfolio of Belgian-inspired beers in 28 counties in Illinois, including the Chicagoland region and a recent expansion to the Rockford, Bloomington/Normal, and Champaign/Urbana areas.

“I was in the unique position to watch Solemn Oath grow from its early days, and formed a close relationship with its leadership team,” said Hobbs. “Seeing what they’re doing and understanding their strategy for the next five years, made my decision to come on board an easy one. They’re ambitious and progressive thinkers. I’m excited to get in there and start selling beer.”

Hobbs will begin his role at Solemn Oath Brewery on September 6, 2016.

About Solemn Oath

Sometimes at Solemn Oath we listen to rock and sometimes we listen to rap. On occasion you might hear some jazz, pop, or a splash of early punk. The important thing to realize is that we’re always lively. Always accomplishing something. Always planning for what we hope will not be your favorite new thing, or the brewery’s favorite new thing, but our favorite thing together. Never complacent and always adapting. Changing the world, probably. For more information, visit www.solemnoathbrewery.com.

Flying Dog, Salazon Chocolate Co. team up on Pumpkin IPA chocolate bar

BeerPulse - Mon, 08/22/2016 - 13:32

[Press Release:]

(Frederick, MD) – Those Pumpkin Spice Cheerios better watch their back. Flying Dog has teamed up with Salazon Chocolate Co. on a new seasonal chocolate bar made with The Gourd Standard Pumpkin IPA.

“We view craft beer as an art form and jump on the opportunity to work with likeminded artisans,” Ben Savage, Flying Dog’s chief marketing officer, said. “Creativity and commitment to the craft is something Salazon shares with us, and it yielded delicious results.”

Known for its line of organic salted dark chocolate bars, Salazon incorporated actual ingredients from the beer into the chocolate, including German Nobel hops, our custom pumpkin spice blend and sea salt infused with the beer itself.

“We’ve all seen chocolate paired with wine, but it actually pairs just as well with craft beer,” Pete Truby, founder of Salazon Chocolate Co. said. “And we couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with one of the leaders in creative craft brewing, Flying Dog, which is also based in Maryland.”

The 72% organic dark chocolate Pumpkin Beer bar will be available starting September 1 on Salazon’s website, in the Flying Dog tasting room and in select Whole Foods Markets, Safeway, Earth Fare, MOM’s Organic Markets, New Seasons Markets and a number of independent natural food stores.

Flying Dog attracts everyone from craft beer connoisseurs to those just catching the wave with up to 20 styles available at any given time and its Gonzo ties to writer Hunter S. Thompson and artist Ralph Steadman. Named the Mid-Size Craft Brewery of the Year at the 2009 Great American Beer Festival (the highest honor for its size in the United States), recent accolades for Flying Dog include its Pale Ale ranked as the #1 American Pale Ale in the U.S. by The New York Times.

Magnolia Brewing becomes first Bay Area brewery to partner with Mindful Distributors

BeerPulse - Mon, 08/22/2016 - 13:07

Press Release:

(San Francisco, CA) — San Francisco-based Magnolia Brewing Company announces a new partnership with emerging Bay Area beverage distributor Mindful Distributors. Mindful will distribute all Magnolia beers including flagships Blue Bell Bitter, Proving Ground IPA, Prescription Pale and Kalifornia Kölsch to the East Bay region.

In 2015, after self-distributing their beers for 17 years on a very limited basis, Magnolia expanded its distribution upon completion of its new production brewery in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood. Now, Magnolia has become the first San Francisco brewery to partner with Mindful Distributors, a company that entered the craft distributor market this year. Mindful focuses on a carefully-curated list of exceptional breweries, with special interest in regional California brands.

Mindful will be distributing Magnolia’s beers in Contra Costa and Alameda counties, introducing a wider cross-section of the East Bay to their classic English-influenced ales, flagship Kalifornia Kölsch and newer, seasonal releases. With a dedicated East Bay sales team, Mindful plans to direct intensive marketing efforts towards increasing the number of accounts carrying Magnolia, while also increasing sell-through in those accounts through brewer events and sampling.

Mindful’s team consists of co-owners Dave Kindernay and Phil Birnbaum. Phil is also the founder of Running Man Distributing, the Portland-based boutique craft beer distributor that introduced Magnolia’s products to the Portland area.

Based on the success of the Oregon relationship, Magnolia founder Dave McLean says he’s confident the new partnership will increase Magnolia’s exposure, while also boosting Mindful’s presence.

“That’s the connection that encouraged us to partner with Mindful,” McLean says. “It’s exciting to see a new distributor coming into the space with the experience and enthusiasm that they have.”

About Magnolia Brewing Company

Led by brewmaster and founder Dave McLean, Magnolia Brewing Company has been producing some of San Francisco’s most sought-after beers since 1997, when it opened its original Haight-Ashbury brewpub. Magnolia’s beers have won awards from The Great American Beer Festival and other national competitions. Among the Brewery’s most beloved offerings are its well-balanced, English-influenced session beers such as Blue Bell Bitter, Bonnie Lee’s Best Bitter, New Speedway Bitter and Sara’s Ruby Mild. Magnolia was one of the first craft breweries to produce a Kölsch-style ale in 2002 that has now become its top seller. It is also well-known for its hybrid English-American IPA, Proving Ground.

Magnolia brews its beers within its extensive and growing food and beverage ecosystem that goes back to its inception as a brewery-gastropub on Haight Street over 18 years ago. In 2014, Magnolia introduced its second location, Smokestack, a barbecue restaurant in the Dogpatch neighborhood, adjacent to its new production brewery.
