Shmaltz Death Hoppy Black Ale released in 35 states ahead of Halloween

Shmaltz Death Hoppy Black Ale released in 35 states ahead of Halloween

[Press Release:]

(Clifton Park, NY) – When Shmaltz Brewing Company parted ways with their contract brewing habits and opened their very own Upstate New York brewery, Shmaltz knew the best way to commemorate that moment was to brew an extra special beer. In 2013, Death of a Contract Brewer® was born and Shmaltz’s contract brewing days passed. This year’s Death Hoppy Black Ale® is an homage to new life and the Jewish tradition of mourning. Seven days are spent mourning in Jewish culture, so when it came time to brew Death Hoppy Black Ale®, Shmaltz’s Head Brewer Richie Saunders added 7 hops, 7 malts, and ended up with 7% ABV. Overflowing with characteristics of coffee, dark chocolate, and fresh citrus with a mix of pine, the hoppy black ale’s deep roasted malt flavors provide support for a bold mix of bright and bitter West Coast hops.

Only available through Halloween, Death Hoppy Black Ale® features updated packaging design by Shmaltz’s Art Director Matt Polacheck. The award-winning designer notes, “Last year, we introduced the black and white Death sugar skull to honor our past life as a contract brewer. Borrowing elements from our rebranding of the Shmaltz logo (hop eyes and nose, malt mustache and fermenter teeth), the 2016 packaging represents where we are today at our new brewery in Clifton Park, NY. With the addition of bright colors, it further symbolizes our constant pursuit of creativity, fun and uniqueness in both design and brewing exceptional beer.”

Death Hoppy Black Ale® won “Best of the Mid-Atlantic/Southeast” with the United States Beer Tasting Championship, and “2014 Products of the Year – Beer Winner” with Drink Me Magazine’s 150 Elite Awards. Death Hoppy Black Ale® has a 96 Rating with RateBeer.com.

Perfectly summing up Death Hoppy Black Ale®, DRAFT Magazine comments on the 2014 release, “The hops’ grassy and grapefruit flavors meet dark malts’ quiet chocolate and big roast, for a palatable IPA-meets-dark-beer experience. The key to making this style work is harmonizing the roast and the hop bitterness, while allowing the best of the flavors of both worlds to express in an enlivened way: Death® hits all of those notes with ease.”

Hibrewnation Festival of Beer series returns to Pennsylvania beginning November 19th

Hibrewnation Festival of Beer series returns to Pennsylvania beginning November 19th

[Sponsored / Paid Press Release:]

Winter is comin!
There are many beer festivals out there, but we decided to concentrate on the beer. No gimmicks, no filler taps, no complicated music or food line-up. Hibrewnation is an uncompromising exploration of beer. Tucked within our 90 hand-selected craft and local brews, you’ll find a healthy portion of rare and hard to find beers. We aren’t talking “go-to-a-better-beer-store-hard-to-find” we are talking actually hard to find.

Saturday 2-5pm (12pm VIP Session)

General Selection
Hibrewnation is a tasting festival, not a drinking festival. It is not flagship beers in large quantities. It is smaller quantities of rare and harder to find beers and putting them in front of people who appreciate them. You may not get them all, but you can get many of them.

Timed Releases
We have a beer cellar just for the festivals. We don’t have much, but we take those beers and we toss em up at the festivals so 20 rather than 2 people can try each one. Some beers have a single bottle at each event. We thank our loyal fans by making this information available in various ways.

Central Waters Brewing Co. beers land in Michigan’s Oakland and Macomb counties

(Orion Township, MI) – Metro Detroit craft beer enthusiasts can soon enjoy specialty brews from Amherst, Wis.-based Central Waters Brewing Co.

Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA, Prohibition Ale comes to cans year-round; Betrayal returns

Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA, Prohibition Ale comes to cans year-round; Betrayal returns
visit-california-increases-traveler-interest-with-youtube-campaign_case-studies_lg_300

[Press Release:]

(San Francisco, CA) – Speakeasy Ales & Lagers is excited to announce the release of three new cans this fall, including their best selling flagship beers, Big Daddy IPA and Prohibition Ale. By popular demand, Betrayal Imperial Red Ale will also return in a can to Speakeasy’s Limited Series lineup. All three beers will be packaged and shipped to distributors in October.

Speakeasy started filling cans in 2015 with the debut of their Session Series, followed by Double Daddy Imperial IPA in the spring of 2016. The success of those releases, coupled with more consumer interest in canned beer, made canning flagship and seasonal beers an easy choice. Moving forward, Speakeasy fans can expect an even larger portfolio of canned beer, excluding barrel-aged releases.

According to Forest Gray, Speakeasy’s founder and CEO, “We’ve always believed cans are a better package. They don’t allow light or oxygen into the beer, they’re portable, and easier to recycle. When someone goes into a market to pick up a six pack of beer, I can’t find a good reason for them to walk out with something that weighs twice as much and provides the same experience, if not better, in a can.”

Prohibition Ale and Big Daddy IPA will be available year-round in cans. Prohibition Ale was the first beer Speakeasy bootlegged back in 1997. Year after year it’s been an award-winning staple, recently receiving a gold medal in the amber/red category at the 2013 Great American Beer Festival. Big Daddy IPA joined Speakeasy’s lineup in 1999, and helped establish the popularity of West Coast IPAs.

ThirstyBear Saison De Houblon, Baltic Porter join beer lineup for October, November 2016

ThirstyBear Saison De Houblon, Baltic Porter join beer lineup for October, November 2016
visit-california-increases-traveler-interest-with-youtube-campaign_case-studies_lg_300

[Press Release:]

(San Francisco, CA) – ThirstyBear Organic Brewery follows its latest release of four small batch beers with a brand new farmhouse ale SAISON DE HOUBLON and BALTIC PORTER. ThirstyBear’s new craft beer program features a constantly rotating lineup of specialty, seasonal and classic craft beers. Traditional, innovative or experimental, the beers are ever-changing. Founding Brewmaster Ron Silberstein and Head Brewmaster Brenden Dobel are in love with the hyper-elevated degree of consumer exploration as craft beer enthusiasts are now more than ever ready to discover their new favorite Bay Area beers.

For the months of October and November 2016, ThirstyBear adds SAISON DE HOUBLON and BALTIC PORTER to its lineup of recently released limited edition beers, THE DECEIVER (American Tripel Double IPA) and OATGRIST (English Brown Ale). ThirstyBear always serves nine distinctive, rotating brews on tap plus two cask conditioned beers. For detailed information regarding ThirstyBear’s latest freshly brewed beers, please see the beer descriptions listed below.

SAISON DE HOUBLON (6.1% ABV, 40 IBU)
Saison is French for “season”. The beer style is often referred to as a Farmhouse Ale, originally intended to nourish farmers during harvest before the Industrial Revolution. ThirstyBear’s version is brewed with malted wheat for bright, bready flavors and then hopped at a higher rate with spicy Sterling hops and floral Crystal hops to complement the intensely fruity, spicy, peppery Belgian Saison yeast strain. Extra hopping is referenced by the word “houblon,” which is French for hop. SAISON DE HOUBLON pairs incredibly well with ThirstyBear’s Spanish cuisine focused menu; saison’s are renowned for their food friendly character.

BALTIC PORTER (7.7% ABV, 38 IBU)
Baltic Porters were born in the 18th century when British brewers made a dark Robust Porter ale specifically for export to such far away places as St. Petersburg. Similar to the India Pale Ales brewed for export, it had a higher alcohol content to preserve the ale during its journey to far away lands. Eventually, brewers in Eastern Europe and the Baltics began brewing a new version of Porter by fermenting it with their own Continental lager yeast rather than ale yeast. This is where the style breaks from its British heritage. It’s a dense, chewy, rich malty lager with notes of caramel, molasses and dried fruit. ThirstyBear recently brewed a Helles, a Dunkel, and a Schwarzbier with a lager yeast strain. In more than 20 years of brewing, Brenden Dobel had yet to brew a classic Baltic Porter. With the lager yeast in house, he seized the moment to brew this strong elixir.

Pacific Standard Taproom & Growler Station: Half Moon Bay Brewing opens first outpost

Pacific Standard Taproom & Growler Station: Half Moon Bay Brewing opens first outpost
visit-california-increases-traveler-interest-with-youtube-campaign_case-studies_lg_300

[Press Release:]

(Berkeley, CA) – The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, a popular Coastside venue best known for its come-as-you-are atmosphere, fresh seafood and award-winning, craft beer, will officially open its first outpost: Pacific Standard Taproom & Growler Station, the premier destination for craft beer in the heart of Berkeley, on October 19, 2016. Dedicated to setting the bar for craft beer on the West Coast, Pacific Standard Taproom & Growler Station offers a wide variety of 16 to 24 local and regional beers on tap, with up to 50 percent of the beer sourced from the on-site brewery at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, in a cool, relaxing casual atmosphere.

Under the direction of lauded brewmaster James Costa since 2013, the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company has introduced a number of renowned beers, including the Full Swing IPA and California’s first beer made using recycled water from NASA. Winner of a gold medal at the 2015 U.S. Open Beer Championship, a silver medal at the 2015 California State Fair, two silver medals at the 2016 California State Fair, and bronze for its Kölsch at the U.S. Open Beer Championships in 2016, the Brewing Company has been helping set the standard for craft beer in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past sixteen years.

Federico Godinez, the executive chef at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, also serves in this capacity at Pacific Standard. Under his guidance, the menu at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company evolved to one that expertly fuses California Coastal cuisine with elements from all over the culinary map, resulting in dishes bursting with freshness and global flavors. At Pacific Standard, Chef Godinez has crafted a small, eclectic menu featuring locally sourced meats, cheeses and produce to complement the taproom’s local beer, wine and cider. In addition to top beers from the Bay area and beyond, Pacific Standard features a rotating assortment of ciders and Northern California wines, as well as growlers and bottles of popular beers brewed at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company.

To develop the concept for Pacific Standard, the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company’s general manager, Nate Rey, enlisted the expertise of Joel DiGiorgio, a Berkeley-based food and beverage consultant with Farm League Design & Management Group, and promoted Half Moon Bay Brewing Company manager Kyle McCarthy to director of business development.

Lagavulin Tasting Boston November 2nd, 2016 – Scotch Whisky News

Lagavulin Tasting Boston November 2nd, 2016 – Scotch Whisky News
federal-wine-spirits1

October 25th, 2016

The Olde Mouldy lends you a helping hand in making up your mind about attending the Lagavulin Masterclass coming up on Wednesday, November 2 at 6pm because we are very thoughtful

It’s been four weeks now since we announced our Lagavulin masterclass, which means hopefully you’ve been paid twice since then and we expect you’ve been scrimping and saving in order to budget $355 for this event. Well we’re delighted to tell you that there are still tickets left! Since then, we have also announced that we’ll be celebrating our first anniversary immediately following the tasting, so you can stick around, have some food, and taste a couple more very special whiskies if you like.

Sometimes it’s hard to know, though, how special or delicious a whisky is going to be, when someone just throws ages and vintages at you, so we’ve assembled some tasting notes of the rarities for you to peruse if you’re the sort to find that helpful. Warning: You might consider donning a bib first to collect the forthcoming drool. Our favorite reviewer is a very experienced and strangely funny man from Alsace named Serge Valentin who pens the unequaled blog Whisky Fun. While it would be more polite to hyperlink you directly to each review, we’ve instead collected and slightly abridged them because his reviews are published in great large tasting sessions, most of which would be irrelevant for your purposes, and he’s been known to waffle rather.

Some of you might be interested to know that Monsieur Valentin is really quite a conservative scorer, though you wouldn’t know it to see the scores he’s given these – we assure you that is only because we truly have assembled quite an enviable lineup. Every other whisky he’s ever tasted has scored a 72.

Ultra Limited, K&L Single Barrel Exclusive: 1973 Carsebridge 42 Year Old “Sovereign” – Scotch Whisky News

Ultra Limited, K&L Single Barrel Exclusive: 1973 Carsebridge 42 Year Old “Sovereign” – Scotch Whisky News
kl_logo_trans
KL-emailheader

Following on the heels of our instant-sellout 50 Year Invergordon comes another amazing selection in with an inimitable character and stunning age statement. Those who like their whisky old and rich will definitely be interested in the 1973 Carsebridge 42 Year Old “Sovereign.” Those who like it rare will love the fact this ancient cask only produced 72 bottles in total. Those who like their whisky dark will revel in the dark mahogany of its hue. Those who only drink whisky from “closed” distilleries can rest easy: Carsebridge was closed in 1983 and demolished in 1992. This 42 year old grain whisky is old, rare, dark, rich, and from a long lost producer. The only thing it isn’t is overpriced! Once again, we used our direct buying power to keep the price reasonable. You’ll find this whisky picks up right where the now-sold out Garnheath left off. The only problem is that we only have 72 bottles.

[See Cover Photo]

1973 Carsebridge 42 Year Old “Sovereign” K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Whiskey (750ml) ($249.99)

Much like our other 42 year grain whisky cask from Garnheath distillery, this 42 year old grain also comes from a long lost producer. Carsebridge was one of the many industry casualties of 1983 and was permanently closed after the whisky business suffered serious economic setbacks. The grain facility was originally founded at the end of the 1700s, making it one of the oldest in Scotland until it was completely demolished in 1992, after staying dormant for almost a decade. This 1973 single cask of Carsebridge, bottled for us by Sovereign, is another rich and full-bodied whisky that brings serious bang for the buck. While malt whisky prices for 30+ year old expressions continue to reach four figures, the misunderstood grain whisky market continues to stay low and reasonable. Candied citrus, toasted oak, sweet vanilla, and a richness that can only come from over forty years in wood dance over the palate in waves of Scotch whisky deliciousness. Due to the ancient age, however, this barrel evaporated down quite heavily. Less than 80 total bottles were retrieved and sent to over to us, making this selection a true rarity. Bottled at 53.3%

Delicato Family Vineyards announces 4 millionth Bota Box

Delicato Family Vineyards announces 4 millionth Bota Box

Napa, Calif-based Delicato Family Vineyards announced that Bota Box, the eco-friendly wine producer of premium 3- and 1.5-liter bag-in-box and 500-ml Tetra Pak wines, has reached another pivotal benchmark for the family-owned winery by reaching 4 million cases in sales.

Case number 4 million shipped from the winery Oct. 24, fulfilling the order placed by Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits in Denver, the company says. To commemorate this achievement, Chris Indelicato, Delicato Family Vineyards president and chief executive officer, and Mike Jackson, executive vice president of sales and marketing, will travel to Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits offices in Denver to show their appreciation to Denver Bota Box and distributor representative Steve Noorlun, executive vice president and general manager, who will receive a commemorative award, it adds.

"It's a great pleasure to receive this year's 4 millionth case of Bota Box here in Colorado. This is an extraordinary milestone for the people of Delicato Family Vineyards and the Indelicato family," Noorlun said in a statement. "Congratulations, we're proud to be partnered with you and proud of this achievement."

Indelicato added: "The Bota Box story continues to resonate with consumers as they recognize the innovative technology, environmentally friendly packaging, and probably most importantly, the wine quality. The Bota Box drinker purchases bottled wines $10 and above at retail and has an annual household income of $100,000-plus, which is a testament to that quality. We are proud to reach this milestone with the support of our consumers, retailers, restaurants and distributors. Congratulations to Steve and Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits for helping to make it happen."

Mel Dick, president of the wine division of Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits said: "We at Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits are pleased to have a 16-state relationship with the Indelicato family and Delicato Family Vineyards. Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits was thrilled to hear that Colorado will be receiving the 4 millionth case of Bota Box. Congratulations to the Indelicato family, Delicato Family Vineyards and Bota Box. We are so very proud of our relationship and look forward to many years of continued growth together."

Highland Imperial Cold Mountain Winter Ale helps mark Cold Mountain’s 20th anniversary

Highland Imperial Cold Mountain Winter Ale helps mark Cold Mountain’s 20th anniversary

[Press Release:]

(Asheville, NC) – Imagine calling a business meeting on a Sunday, in the morning, without serving coffee. Then add instructions: Don’t eat breakfast or drink coffee before arriving, and IF you brush your teeth, make it at least an hour before you arrive. As the group leader, you’d rightly expect attendance to hover near zero. But there is a time and place where everyone shows up. Hungry and uncaffeinated, employees arrive at Highland Brewing Company for one Sunday morning assignment: deciding the flavor profile for this year’s batch of Cold Mountain Winter Ale.

Brewmaster Hollie Stephenson heads up the spicing, with the help of Sensory Scientist Anna Sauls. Attendees are given a series of tastings, simulating a variety of spice additions scaled down for sampling. The flavors are evaluated, discussed, and ultimately the 20th Anniversary Cold Mountain recipe is sealed.

Cold Mountain season is always festive, but this year is the brew’s 20th anniversary. In celebration of Asheville’s longest running seasonal, Highland will release the classic beer alongside a one-time special brew, Imperial Cold Mountain. It will be the Cold Mountain you know and love, but bigger. Expect it to be a bit chocolate-forward, with hints of fruits and nuts, and a touch more warmth at 8% alcohol by volume. Imperial Cold Mountain will be released in 1-liter bottles, 22oz bottles and on draft. Bottles will be available only at the brewery and only for a limited time.

In keeping with tradition, both versions of Cold Mountain will be available at Highland Brewing starting Thursday, November 10th, at 4pm. Lines begin hours before the doors open. Purchases are limited per person per day, with allotments set for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day’s allotment will run out so be sure to arrive early. Highland will have plenty of Cold Mountain on tap for the release weekend along with specialty casks and infusions, including the revered coconut infusion. The entire weekend’s programming in the Tasting Room will be dedicated to celebrating this year’s release with live music, food trucks and more. Cold Mountain is available beyond the brewery but can still be hard to find. It will begin to arrive in stores on Monday, November 14th, in many markets where Highland is sold.
