Oakshire Hellshire Day 2018 details announced

BeerPulse - Sat, 04/21/2018 - 08:52

(Eugene, OR) – For the fifth consecutive year, barrel-aged beer lovers will gather in Eugene, Oregon for Oakshire’s annual Hellshire Day. This renowned barrel-aged beer festival features over 40 rare barrel-aged beers from around the country, served up in a single day on Saturday May 12th. The festival’s headlining beer is Hellshire VIII; Oakshire’s 2018 Vintage release in the Hellshire series of bourbon barrel-aged imperial stouts. In addition to the Saturday event, aficionados of specialty beer may start the celebration early, on Friday evening May 11th with The Hellshire Experience; an intimate all-inclusive evening with Oakshire’s Lead Brewer Dan Russo and Founder Jeff Althouse, featuring Vintage draft pours from the beer library, food and live music.

On Saturday May 12th at noon, Hellshire Day kicks off with an incredible variety of barrel-aged beers, available in a small, casual, beer festival atmosphere. Due to extremely limited availability for many of the beers, the list evolves, but currently shows 36 breweries represented and 31 beers determined (see attached). “It’s a great honor for us that our brewery friends from around the country continue to share their rarest beers with us,” said Dan Russo, Oakshire’s Lead Brewer and curator of Hellshire Day’s beer offerings. The festival will also feature food carts Buck Buck (fried chicken), Oregon Wood Fired Pizza, Bing King (Chinese street food) and more. Live music throughout the day will round out Hellshire Day (and evening) wrapping up at 8pm.

Oakshire Founder Jeff Althouse describes the fest as “a celebration of the pinnacle of craftsmanship in beer making. Hellshire Day showcases rare and special beers from a variety of independent brewers. The community gathering of beer makers and beer drinkers at Hellshire Day is a rare experience in the underworld of barrel-aged beer.”

The Hellshire Day Barrel-aged Beer Festival will run from 12pm-8pm at the Oakshire Public House, located at 207 Madison Street in Eugene. $30 In-advance (thru 5/11/18), available now at oakbrew.com/hellshire or at Oakshire Brewing’s Public House, or $35 at the Fest. Tickets include festival entry, festival glass and 5 tokens. Most beers are one token ($2) per 4oz pour.

Hellshire Day, May 11, 2018 also marks the release of the eighth installment of Oakshire’s barrel-aged Hellshire series. Hellshire VIII is a take on Mexican coffee: a big and bold chocolaty imperial stout aged in 4 Roses Distillery Kentucky bourbon barrels. Showcasing a natural and sweet vanilla from the wood; cinnamon, cocoa nibs, coffee, and escalating peppers, Hellshire VIII takes after the Especial versions of the previous two years. “The spiciness comes through as a warming pepper sensation across your palate, super smooth and crazy drinkable for the high ABV” said Dan Russo, who also leads Oakshire’s barrel aging programs. Clocking in at 14.0% ABV, Hellshire VIII is a bold and otherworldly stout available in 22oz wax dipped bottles with label art by Weirdo Artist Sean Aaberg.

Hellshire VIII Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with cinnamon, cocoa nibs, coffee, vanilla beans and dried peppers is available at Hellshire Day $20 per 22oz bottle

Furthermore! On Friday, May 11th (Hellshire Eve) from 6-9pm we celebrate the Hellshire Experience with the Oakshire Team, live music, food, and Vintage pours from the beer library. This behind- the-scenes all-inclusive warehouse party will give barrel-aged beer fans and industry professionals the chance to try Hellshire VIII for the first time along with other special vintage offerings. Also included is an extremely rare Oakshire Vintage Brunch in Hell 750ml Bottle for each guest to relive the experience in their own time. The first bottling for this perennial favorite is a divergent offspring of Hellshire VIII’s base beer laid to rest in a freshly dumped St. Croix Rum Barrel. This single barrel breakfast inspired beer features and Organic Vermont Maple Syrup and single origin Columbian varietal coffee roasted by our friends at Slightly Coffee Roasters.

The Hellshire Experience will run from 6pm-9pm at the Oakshire Public House, located at 207 Madison
Street in Eugene. $100 Advance Tickets (thru 5/10/18) available now at oakbrew.com/hellshire or at Oakshire Brewing’s Public House. Hellshire Experience Tickets also include an 11am VIP Hellshire Day festival entry, festival glass and 5 tokens. Most beers are one token ($2) per 4oz pour.

Hangar 24 reveals new branding and new beer, Aventura Mexican Style Lager

BeerPulse - Sat, 04/21/2018 - 08:09

Hangar 24’s shared spirit of adventure comes to life in major brand evolution

(Redlands, CA) – In the spirit of shared adventures and authenticity, and to celebrate the approaching 10th anniversary celebration, Hangar 24 Craft Brewing is announcing a brand evolution that has been a year in the making, with a new vibrant look across all its core brands, as well as the introduction of a new core beer.

Aventura Mexican Style Lager, with a touch of sea salt from the Sea of Cortez, and fresh whole Southern California limes, will make its debut at the Redlands Taproom on Cinco de Mayo (May 5). It is scheduled to be available at craft beer retailers later in May.

Adventures are to be shared, and the stories of those experiences often live on through photographs. So new labels on bottles and cans of Hangar 24 beer will include both visual photographic imagery, as well as label story text. While Aventura is brand new, the flavors of classics like Orange Wheat and Betty IPA will remain the same. The new Orange Wheat label will feature a plane flying low over a local orange grove. Betty IPA’s label will include a photo of Betty herself.

Our blonde ale will be getting new clothes and an updated recipe. The new Peak Blonde Ale will have a label that includes a helicopter flying over a snowy peak.

Hangar 24’s fresh new take on things is our way of representing our aviation, adventure and authenticity roots. We love sharing adventures with people. We love being on your adventures and we love sharing our liquid adventures and epic stories of humanity. “Adventures We Share” is a promise and an invitation all at once. The stories of adventure are something to pass along. Let’s celebrate together and share it.

With the Hangar 24 Airfest & 10th Anniversary Celebration approaching May 19-20, it was the perfect time to take flight with a new look and a refreshing new been in Aventura Mexican Style Lager. The photography on these new bottles and cans is one adventure we share with you, and there is more on Instagram and Twitter (@Hangar24Brewing), as well as on our Facebook page at “Hangar 24 Craft Brewing.” We invite you to join the adventure using the hashtag #AdventuresWeShare.

Note: More information on Hangar 24’s new look will be available when it officially is revealed at a party at the Redlands Taproom on Friday, May 18, in advance of the May 19-20 AirFest & 10th Anniversary Celebration.

About Hangar 24 Craft Brewery

Hangar 24 is an independently owned craft brewery with locations in Redlands and Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The company produces a diverse award-winning line of beers ranging from the best-selling Orange Wheat to the exclusive barrel-aged Barrel Roll Series, including the renowned Pugachev’s Cobra.

Boulevard Brewing’s high speed canning line goes into service

BeerPulse - Sat, 04/21/2018 - 07:38

(Kansas City, MO) – Boulevard Brewing Company today announced that its long-awaited canning line has been installed and fully commissioned. The $10 million project consists of a 24,000 square foot Canning Hall adjacent to the brewery, housing a high speed line capable of filling up to 350 12-ounce cans per minute. Engineered with flexibility in mind, the line is able to produce a variety of can sizes and package configurations.

“In recent years, much of the growth in high-end beer has been in cans,” said Boulevard president Jeff Krum, noting that craft beer drinkers are attracted to the perceived environmental advantages of aluminum versus glass. “We’ve coveted a canning line for quite a while, but we were determined to take our time and do it right. Now, with this new state-of-the-art system added to our existing keg and bottle lines, we’ve got our packaging bases fully covered.”

Finkle + Williams served as project architect. Kansas City-based MillerStauch Construction was general contractor. Key equipment and operational expertise was supplied by Krones AG .

The can line is already producing 12-packs of KC Pils and Pale Ale, the two newest additions to the portfolio. Seasonal offerings of Hibiscus Gose and Berliner Weisse will be can and draft exclusive. Other beers available in aluminum cans include Unfiltered Wheat, American Kolsch, Jam Band, Tropical Pale Ale and Ginger Lemon Radler.
