Shmaltz Funky Jewbelation 2017 & Hop Orgy IPA debuts at Opening Bash Invitational

BeerPulse - Sat, 02/25/2017 - 13:09

[Press Release:]

(Clifton Park, NY) – The pinnacle of craft beer in New York State is now upon us with New York City Beer Week’s first ever Opening Bash Invitational taking place tomorrow, February 25, 2017 at Brooklyn Expo Center. The New York City Brewers Guild has raised the curtain on Beer Week at Grand Central’s iconic Vanderbilt Hall. They’ve presented the Opening Bash on a cruise around the NYC harbor with a pit stop at the Statue of Liberty. In 2017, the Guild brings NYC craft beer fans an entirely new bash: all of New York City’s beloved breweries have invited their favorite breweries from around the world to a beer festival like none other.

Among the 50 breweries pouring at the Opening Bash Invitational are 25 iconic New York State breweries. Shmaltz Brewing founder and owner Jeremy Cowan proudly presents two exceptional craft beers Funky Jewbelation® and Hop Orgy IPA® at the biggest night in NYC craft beer! Throughout NYC Beer Week 2017, Shmaltz also brings the funk to signature NYC Beer Week 2017 events as well as several Manhattan and Brooklyn launch parties:

Saturday, Feb. 25 — NYC Beer Week Opening Bash (Brooklyn Expo Center, 72 Noble Street, Brooklyn, 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm): Join Shmaltz Founder and Owner Jeremy Cowan for tastings of Funky Jewbelation® and Hop Orgy®.

Tuesday, Feb. 28 — NY Beer Tap Takeover (Draught 55, 245 E. 55th Street, NYC): Shmaltz features Slingshot American Craft Lager® and 838 Craft 10-Digit Double IPA®.

Tuesday, Feb. 28 — Vintage Vinyl Night (Lock Yard, 9221 5th Avenue, Brooklyn): Shmaltz features Slingshot American Craft Lager® paired with Rolling Stones albums.

Wednesday, March 1 — Brewer’s Choice Night (Brooklyn Paramount Theatre, 1 University Ave., Brooklyn, 6pm-9:30pm): Shmaltz features Funky Jewbelation® and 838 Craft 10-Digit Double IPA®.

Thursday, March 2 — Shmaltz Tasting (Malt House – Financial District, 9 Maiden Lane, NYC, 5pm): Shmaltz features Funky Jewbelation® and Slingshot American Craft Lager®.

The Funky Is Reborn in 2017
For the 2017 release of Funky Jewbelation®, Shmaltz loaded eight individual ales and lagers from across their acclaimed craft beer portfolio for ten to thirty months into bourbon and rye whiskey barrels from Buffalo Trace, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Willett, Redemption, Sazerac, and Wild Turkey. Funky Jewbelation® glistens a deep, rich, ruby color with tart flavors of dark fruit, raspberries, blueberries, fig, and complex malts — caramel, toffee, and rye. Aromas bounce between bittersweet chocolate, farmhouse funk, and tart peach and apricot. A mouthwatering puckering is complemented by pronounced hits of bourbon, charred wood, molasses and light notes of bing cherry, ending with a wine-like mouth feel.

This year’s hand blended recipe of Funky Jewbelation® is an expert mash-up of Jewbelation 19® (test batch brewed as the base of Funky, 11 months in advance of blending) and Jewbelation 20®, Hanukkah, Chanukah: Pass The Beer®, Messiah Nut Brown Ale®, St. Lenny’s®, Rejewvenator® 2014, Origin Pomegranate Strong Ale®, and Genesis 20:20®.

The lauded Funky Jewbelation® series (2012-2017) has brought home some impressive honors, including a Gold Medal with the World Beer Championships, being awarded the Grand Champion (Giant Beer Category) at US Beer Tasting Championship, a Gold Medal in packaging with Beverage World’s “BevStar Awards,” a silver medal at the prestigious World Beer Cup 2014, and consistent 94-98 ratings from RateBeer.com.

Shmaltz Reveals Brand New Variety 12-Pack Hop Orgy, Because 3-Ways are for Wine Drinkers
We’re still not really sure how it all went down. Everything was kind of a blur. Someone called someone’s package out and demanded some immediate action. Tentative whispers and coy glances turned into giggles and playful suggestions. Suddenly, Shmaltz Brewing realized it was on — and everyone on staff jumped in to make it happen. The sweet rush of creation with a burst of hands crafting a symphony of elements. Shmaltz welcomes you to experience Hop Orgy(TM), a fresh new variety 12-pack filled with Hop Manna® IPA, Hop Momma IPA®, Hop Mania Imperial IPA®, and the new Hop Orgy IPA®.

Delights for all the senses — enticing aromas, flavors to feed thirsty mouths, and lush images to tantalize the eyes. A tactile and imaginative feast! After the commotion was all over, there may have been some awkward flushed looks but never tears or accusations. Everyone played their role and everyone had a great time doing it. No regrets — just the mutual feeling of group satisfaction in achieving the pleasure of another scrumptious Shmaltz Brewing creation.

Twelve beers — four distinct IPAs — no one gets left out.

Join Shmaltz at one of the many NYC Beer Week 2017 events and be among the first to taste this year’s Funky Jewbelation® and Hop Orgy IPA®!

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.

Big Storm, Zephyrhills and Craft Life Brewing co-brew Open Spaces Porter

BeerPulse - Sat, 02/25/2017 - 12:50

[Press Release:]

(Odessa, FL) – Big Storm Brewing Co. announced today the release of a collaboration beer with other Pasco County brewers, Zephyrhills and Craft Life called “Open Spaces Porter.” The Pasco breweries will unveil the limited, draft-only brew at the “Meet the Pasco Brewer” event scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday, March 11 at Big Storm’s location in Odessa as the finale of the 2017 Tampa Bay Beer Week celebration.

Sitting down to discuss the beer style with Big Storm’s Head Brewer, Joel Moore, were Tim Foley and Robert Hilferding of Craft Life Brewing and Zephyrhills Brewing Company respectively. It was apparent early on how important it was to use ingredients in this collaborative beer sourced in Pasco County. The honey used in the beer is from Queen Kathleen and the citrus puree is from Kumquat Growers located in Dade City, Florida.

The Pasco County Economic Development Council has done an amazing job promoting the area as one of great opportunity for growing businesses,” said Mike Bishop, Founder of Big Storm Brewery. “The Open Spaces – Vibrant Places campaign launched earlier this year by the Pasco EDC was the inspiration behind the name, as it speaks to our shared spirit of collaboration, teamwork and love of the area,” Bishop explained.

All the collaborative brewers will participate in a “Meet the Pasco Brewer” event at Big Storm, and be on hand to discuss the process with the public. Party-goers will be able to try the Open Spaces Porter, as well as several other beers from all the participating breweries. There will be also be live music and food trucks during the event. The party will mark the end of Tampa Bay Beer Week, an annual eight-day celebration of the local Tampa Bay craft beer culture that showcases the area as an emerging and vibrant craft and specialty beer destination.

ABOUT BIG STORM: Big Storm Brewing Co is one of the fastest growing independent craft breweries in Florida. Founded in 2012 by Mike Bishop, Big Storm now has two brewing and taproom facilities in Tampa Bay. Led by Head Brewer, Joel Moore, Big Storm’s innovative craft beers have received critical acclaim for the past four consecutive years, winning 2016’s Best Florida Beer Championship with their Oktoberfest Marzen Lager. Today, Big Storm is a true pioneer using locally sourced ingredients like citrus and wild flower honey, brewing more than 20 different beers, including their popular Arcus IPA, Wavemaker(r) Amber Ale, Helicity(r) Pilsner and Oates in Hose Oatmeal Stout. Available in most local Publix, Whole Foods, Total Wine and ABC Liquors, Big Storm is not just craft beer, but great beer.
