***

Bruery Terreux Confession – This collaboration between Bruery Terreux and Fess Parker Winery is an Oak-aged Sour Blonde Ale fermented with Riesling grapes, with wild yeast adding tart acidity and subtle funk. One of the best beers we’ve had from The Bruery, Confession is bright and golden, with white wine character conjuring herbaceous and apple-y Riesling notes and the soft vanilla, buttery, and toasty oak barrel character of California Chardonnay. 9.4% ABV.

Bruery Terreux Frambulous – A Blended Sour Blonde Ale aged in Oak Barrels with Raspberries, Frambulous delivers immense, pulpy raspberry notes (and color) with a smooth but deeply developed lactic sour presence of tart grapefruit and lemon custard, with subtle oak adding key structure. Nuanced and expressive fruit character meets diverse acidities, with that time spent in oak barrels adding a hint of tannins and subtle vanilla. 5.3% ABV.

The Bruery Dodie – A Strong Ale Aged in Bourbon Barrels with Grape Must, Cherries, Orange Zest & Spices, Dodie is modeled after the Manhattan cocktail. Dense, hazy golden-brown, Dodie employs rye, barley, wheat, a blend of 20+ spices, and grape must for bitters-esque and vermouth-like notes. Vibrant orange zest, plush cherries, and a slightly prickly carbonation add lift and brightness to this sturdy brew. 11.7% ABV.

The Bruery Chronology: 12 – This Bourbon Barrel Aged English-Style Old Ale is an intricately packed, 16.7% ABV, English-style old ale that’s spent 12 months in Bourbon barrels. Deep, hazy dark brown and super complex with notes of bourbon, brown sugar, and fruity, vinous warmth. A thread of red wine meets bourbon and dried dark fruits with hints of vanilla and char, marshmallow and bright oak, and a surprisingly lean feel from just enough fine-bubbled CO2. 16.7% ABV.

Flexible ordering allows you to order 2, 4, 6, 8, or 12 total bottles, combining any of the four featured beers in any way to get there so that you can easily try all four. Orders ship after our September 30 cut-off date.

Order online or at 800-625-8238 Mon-Fri 7 am – 5 pm Pacific. If your Rare Beer Club membership was a gift, you will be contacted by one of our team members for payment information if you submit your order online.

Stone Vanilla Bean Porter named exclusive beer in new Cabin Fever Variety Pack

BeerPulse - Thu, 09/22/2016 - 06:13

[Press Release:]

(Escondido CA) – The arrival of cooler months heralds when craft beer drinkers begin to find themselves hunkered down indoors with richer beers like milk stouts and porters. Starting this week the new Stone Vanilla Bean Porter will be packed for any such occasion alongside Stone Coffee Milk Stout, Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0 and Stone Delicious IPA in the Stone Cabin Fever Mixed 12 Pack.

Rich and exotic, and brewed with Madagascar vanilla bean, Stone Vanilla Bean Porter is available exclusively on draft, as well as in 12-ounce bottles in the Stone Cabin Fever Mixed 12 Pack. Whole vanilla beans, the world’s second-most expensive spice, imparts a delicate creaminess and palate-seducing softness. It gracefully complements the chocolate undertones and hints of coffee derived from ample use of chocolate malt. Extremely drinkable, Stone Vanilla Bean Porter starts with a soft vanilla aroma and ends with a rich, chocolaty finish.

“We have played with many ingredient additions in our porters over the years and love the versatility of this beer,” said Jeremy Moynier, Senior Manager, Innovation Program and Supply Chain at Stone Brewing Co.. “We first added vanilla beans back in 2006 in a cask and loved the results so much we would do small runs of this beer from time to time. Recently we tried out this new version through our pilot system to see what our fans thought and we got our best response to date! It seemed obvious to do it on the large scale to get it out there so even more people could enjoy it.”

The four beers in the Stone Cabin Fever Mixed 12 Pack were selected to present a range of styles to share with either a group of friends, or just that special someone. The top of the box offers tasting notes and food pairing suggestions for each beer, but there’s no reason to limit pairings to food. They also all go nicely with post-mountain hot-tub dips, roaring fires, bear skin rugs, and someone special for…you get the idea.

QUICK FACTS
STONE VANILLA BEAN PORTER

Name: Stone Vanilla Bean Porter
Web: stonebrewing.com/vanillabean
Stats: 5.9% ABV, 53 IBUs
Availability: 12-ounce bottles in the Stone Cabin Fever Mixed 12 Pack and on draft, beginning September 19

TASTING NOTES

STONE VANILLA BEAN PORTER

Appearance: Pours deep brown with a tan head
Aroma: Vanilla bean and coffee with hints of cocoa
Taste: Rich vanilla, with cocoa and coffee flavors melding together
Palate: Medium-full body and smooth with substantial bitterness
Overall: Our love affair with Vanilla and Porter began in 2006 when we first tried it in a cask. It’s been a favorite ever since! We have done many different additions with Porter since including chipotle and citrus but always seem to come back to vanilla beans, which meld perfectly with the other attributes of the beer. Our latest version has a smooth and creamy structure that comes from using whole Madagascar vanilla beans.

SUGGESTED PAIRINGS
PROVIDED BY STONE CRAFT BEER AMBASSADOR “DR.” BILL SYSAK

Appetizers: Bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with cream cheese, coconut shrimp, sugar-glazed pecans, blue cheese-stuffed mushrooms

Full Sail Brewing Co. partners with Mims Distributing Company for North Carolina distribution

BeerPulse - Thu, 09/22/2016 - 05:28

[Press Release:]

(Raleigh, NC) – Mims Distributing Company, a leading wholesale beverage distributor in North Carolina, announced its partnership with Full Sail Brewing Company. The award-winning brewery has won accolades at various championships, including the World Beer Championships, Great American Beer Festival, and the U.S. Open Beer Championships.

Based out of Hood River, Oregon, Full Sail opened in 1987, within the remnants of an old Diamond Fruit cannery. The brewery began using a manual bottling line, requiring each operation to be completed by hand. Though they no longer use a manual bottling system, they continue their personal touch by crafting their beers by hand, and 99 percent the brewery’s ingredients—barley, yeast, hops and water—come from local sources. Full Sail’s commitment to sustainability earned them recognition by SaveOnEnergy as one of the Green Breweries Across the United States, amongst several other sustainability awards.

Full Sail is committed to sustainability in all its pursuits, including their pledge to water conservation. The company uses less than three gallons of water per gallon of beer produced, compared to the average of six to eight gallons per gallon of beer. Their workweeks are compressed into four 10-hour workdays to reduce power and water consumption by 20 percent. Mims Distributing shares Full Sail’s passion for protecting the environment through their facility design. The distributing company’s two retention ponds, motion activated lighting, and solar panel systems—providing 38 percent of its facility’s power—allows the company to set the bar in sustainability practices.

QUOTES:
“We’re excited to provide some of Oregon’s best brews for North Carolina craft beer lovers to enjoy,” said Jeff Mims, Chief Managing Officer of Mims Distributing Company. “Full Sail’s affinity for sustainability is something we truly admire, and we look forward to partnering with them in a combined effort for a more sustainable world.”

“Bringing a little taste of Oregon brews to North Carolina is something we’re excited for here at Full Sail,” said Jim Brady, VP of Sales for Full Sail’s Brewing Company. “Mims Distributing Company is known for its superior service and dedication to its partners, and we’re joyed to welcome to the Full Sail’s family.”

Massachusetts Brewers Guild elects new president, Night Shift Brewing’s Rob Burns

BeerPulse - Wed, 09/21/2016 - 13:46

[Press Release:]

(Everett, MA) – Over the years, the Massachusetts craft beer scene has supported the growth of 100+ breweries and brewpubs throughout the state. With this growing popularity in craft beer, it has become critical that brewers have a collective voice advocating for and promoting their interests. This is where the Massachusetts Brewers Guild (MABG) comes in – a state-level organization that’s committed to protecting the rights of craft brewers. The MABG has been supporting the industry since 2007, and for six years, Rob Martin, founder of Ipswich Ale Brewery, has been leading the charge. Early last week, however, the Guild appointed Rob Burns, co-founder of Night Shift Brewing, as their new President.

In March 2015, after becoming inspired by the energy behind the Brewers Guilds in other states, Burns decided to add his voice and support to the Massachusetts chapter. Starting out vocal from the get-go, he quickly got involved in Government Affairs and found himself testifying at a State House committee in support of House Bill 245 – a petition for change to the archaic wholesale distribution laws. Over the past year, Burns has continued to increase his involvement in the Guild, most notably by heading up the hiring process of their new (and first) full-time Executive Director, who starts this fall.

With this new role, Burns will focus on “promoting the hell out of MA brewers” and aims to “make more people aware of all the great beer in the state, help start-up brewers make quality beer, and get more people in the industry hanging out together so we can build a tight-knit community.”

What will this mean for Night Shift Brewing? Burns will have to shift a lot of his focus away from the brewery, but ensures that the value added is huge. He asserts that, “helping other breweries, building relationships, and helping promote the state’s beer scene will benefit all including NSB.” With a solid team of 11 other board members, the Massachusetts Brewers Guild is in a great position to make 2017 an even better year for craft beer in MA.

He asserts that, “helping other breweries, building relationships, and helping promote the state’s beer scene will benefit all including NSB.” With a solid team of 11 other board members, the Massachusetts Brewers Guild is in a great position to make 2017 an even better year for craft beer in MA.

[Press Release:]

(Cincinnati, OH) — Cincinnati-based Rhinegeist Brewery announces its beer expansion into Boston and across the state of Massachusetts. Along with canned core beers of Truth (IPA) and Cougar (Blonde Ale), there will be a slew of canned seasonals rotating throughout the year along with a continuous stream of draft-only limited release brews. Rhinegeist will continue its partnership with Massachusetts Beverage Alliance, who already distributes their craft cider brand, Cidergeist, in Massachusetts.

Bay State residents can find Rhinegeist beers on draft and in 12oz six packs in bars, restaurants, liquor and grocery stores full-time beginning September, 26 2016. For a first tasting of Rhinegeist’s suds, check out the launch week events at the bottom.

Rhinegeist East Coast Sales Director, Nick Vitalo, says about the expansion, “The Massachusetts Beverage Alliance, and their network of distributors, has done a great job in getting our craft cider out to the thirsty consumers across the state. We are excited to partner again with MBA to bring our wide variety of craft beers to one of the most innovative and competitive markets in the world of craft beer. Massachusetts has certainly enjoyed our cider and we hope to continue the momentum with our beer!”

Brian Murphy, Massachusetts Beverage Alliance Director of Sales and Markets added, “Having sold the cider for the last 7 months, and considering how well it has been received, we are extremely excited about this natural next step. The passion and creativity Rhinegeist brings with their beer is astounding and we are thrilled to share them with the Massachusetts market.”
