Full Sail’s Wreck the Halls is Back, With Bells On

Full Sail’s Wreck the Halls is Back, With Bells On

Hood River, Oregon – October 19, 2016 – For the perfect gift, look no further than Full Sail’s annual favorite, Wreck the Halls Hoppy Holiday Ale. The four-time gold medal winning ale is back and better than ever in festive, new packaging as part of Full Sail’s new Brewmaster Reserve 6-pack series.

“This annual favorite – in 6-packs for the first time – is a sublime hybrid of an American-style IPA and a winter warmer,” says Full Sail Executive Brewmaster Jamie Emmerson. “The result is a bold brew that celebrates the holidays with an intriguing blend of Centennial and Cascade hops providing elegant citrus notes balanced by a backdrop of a rich caramel malt body, dry hopped to amplify the aromas and flavor.”

Full Sail recently redesigned its entire core line of beers as well as its seasonal Brewmaster Reserve offerings. The hand-drawn artwork by Portland-based TWEEQiM creativeLab’s MiQ Willmott on the new Wreck the Halls 6-packs and labels perfectly conjures the festive spirit of a holiday party gone just wild enough.

“Wreck the Halls is an integral part of our diverse lineup of holiday beers, which includes both ales and lagers, and is our way of celebrating the holidays, our independence, and creativity,” says Full Sail Brewmaster Jim Kelter.

If you’re anything like us, holidays are all about food and beer, so pair Wreck the Halls slight caramel maltiness with Rogue Oregonzola, pepper jack, or stronger aged cheeses like farmhouse cheddars, Stilton, Roquefort, super aged Gouda, or Vacherin Mont D’Or. Wreck the Halls also pairs well with capsaicin foods like chili and Thai foods. Finish your holiday meal with Wreck the Halls and spice-forward desserts on the sweeter side like spiced rum cake and spiced sticky toffee pudding.

We’re very excited and proud to announce the release of Jester King 2016 SPON — Méthode Gueuze, our first ever 100 percent spontaneously fermented beer. Jester King 2016 SPON — Méthode Gueuze is a blend of one, two, and three year old 100 percent spontaneously fermented beer made using the traditional method of authentic Belgian Gueuze.

The Origin

During the fall of 2012, we visited Brasserie Cantillon in Brussels, Belgium for the first time and came home inspired to see if spontaneously fermented beer could be made in Texas. We weren’t alone in our doubts. Several of our respected peers voiced concerns about the balance of microflora in our hot climate. We figured we had nothing to lose and that it would be a fun experiment, so on February 26th, 2013, we brewed our very first batch of 100 percent spontaneously fermented beer inspired by the tradition of authentic Belgian Gueuze.

Brothers Michael Steffing & Jeffrey Stuffings during their visit to Brasserie Cantillon

The Method

Our first brew was a turbid mash of 60 percent malted barley and 40 percent raw Texas wheat. We followed the mash schedule found in Jeff Sparrow’s Wild Brews. The first runnings were very starchy. We boiled the wort for four hours with hops aged in burlap bags in the attic of our horse barn.

We transferred the entire batch of wort to a ~15 barrel coolship we had fabricated out of stainless steel. We let the wort cool overnight exposed to airborne yeast and bacteria. The next day, we racked the cooled wort to oak puncheons without pitching any yeast or bacteria. We then waited patiently to see if anything would happen.

Revision Brewing Company Goes Southeast: Brewery Makes Visit to Sign Mutual Distributing Company in North Carolina

Revision Brewing Company Goes Southeast: Brewery Makes Visit to Sign Mutual Distributing Company in North Carolina

October 18, 2016
 
Jeremy Warren, CEO/Brewmaster of Revision Brewing Company and Michael Hayek, Statewide Beer Division Manager at Mutual Distributing Company, Sign Distribution Agreement

SPARKS, NV. (October 16, 2016) – Last week Revision Brewing Company’s CEO/Brewmaster, Jeremy Warren and Distribution Manager, Ken Foster, flew to the Southeast to sign a distribution agreement in North Carolina with Mutual Distributing Company. Mutual has committed to distribute Revision Brewing Company’s products shortly after the Northern Nevada brewery launches in 2017.

Mutual Distributing Company is a wholesale beer and wine distributor servicing the entire state of North Carolina. With over 600 employees and seven full-service branch offices throughout the state, Mutual is committed to providing quality products and exceptional customer service.

Mutual Distributing Company did a quality job with distributing beers from Brewmaster, Jeremy Warren’s former brewery, therefore, the choice to partner with Mutual seemed like a no brainer. “We are very pleased to have the opportunity to partner with Revision Brewing and we look forward to introducing their beers to the state of North Carolina,” said Michael Hayek, Statewide Beer Division Manager at Mutual Distributing Company.

Revision Brewing Company is a new brewery located in Sparks, Nevada that is estimated to open to the public in January of 2017. Due to the demand for Brewmaster, Jeremy Warren’s style of IPAs, the brewery will launch with his hop-forward beers in the limelight, however, their portfolio will also integrate seasonal and unique one-off beers. Additionally, Revision plans on adding barrel aged and sour beers within the first year.

Colorado-based Upslope Brewing Co Wins Again at the Great American Beer Festival

Colorado-based Upslope Brewing Co Wins Again at the Great American Beer Festival

The craft brewer’s Brown Ale wins its third GABF medal

BOULDER, Colo. (October 18, 2016) At the Denver-based 2016 Great American Beer Festival (GABF), Upslope Brewing and its decorated Brown Ale earned a silver medal in the American-Style Brown Ale category. This marks the Brown Ale’s third GABF award in the last five years and makes the beer the most awarded beer in Upslope’s portfolio. In addition to the GABF win this year, Upslope’s Brown Ale won a silver medal at the 2016 World Beer Cup.

Founded in 1982, the Great American Beer Festival is recognized as the largest beer gathering in the country, featuring hundreds of breweries and playing host to beer connoisseurs from across the globe. Each year, the festival awards specific beers and breweries in each of its 96 competing categories. In 2012, Upslope’s Brown Ale was awarded a silver medal, and in 2014 secured the bronze medal—both in the American-Style Brown Ale category.

“The truly ‘great’ GABF lures the best brewers in the United States and every year we love to take part,” says Upslope founder Matt Cutter. “With the event right down the road from us, we are able to host an array of events and ultimately share Upslope’s beer, brand and our mountainous backdrop with every visiting festival goer. We are incredibly proud to receive yet another award for one of our favorite beers.”

The medium-bodied Upslope Brown Ale is brewed in the English tradition, with an infusion of American creativity.  The rich, malty backbone balances an assertive hop character, and ends with a dry finish, and the Brown Ale boasts a dark brown body that supports a creamy tan head.

Outer Light Releases Firelands Smoked Cherry Porter

Outer Light Releases Firelands Smoked Cherry Porter

The Revolutionary War spared Connecticut, mostly. There were no major battles fought here and, compared to its surrounding states, limited blood spilled. Instead, Connecticut became known as “The Provision State,” as it outfitted the Continental Army with food, clothing, ammunition, and other supplies.

But in 1781, British forces took notice of Connecticut. General Benedict Arnold, a Norwich native-turned-traitor, had recently finished a raid on the Virginia coastline. New orders sent him to ransack the coast of his home state. Aided by inside information from relatives in the area, General Arnold led his men to destroy large swaths of Groton, New London, Danbury, and Fairfield, among other towns.

Though both armies acknowledged that General Arnold did not intend to inflict such extraordinary damage in New London (an inadvertent powder explosion and sudden wind gusts caused fires to burn out of control), such conclusions did little to help the “Sufferers” who found their homes, churches, wharfs, and communities in ashes.

In 1792, the Connecticut legislature set aside 500,000 acres of land in present-day Ohio for those affected by the British rampage. This land became known as the “Firelands.”

Firelands, our newest addition to the Shoreline Series, honors the brave Connecticut families whose lives were shattered by the British invasion of 1781.

Glengoyne and Jolomo collaborate to support The Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh Campus Appeal – Scotch Whisky News

Glengoyne and Jolomo collaborate to support The Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh Campus Appeal – Scotch Whisky News

The Art of Whisky

Glengoyne and Jolomo collaborate to support The Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh Campus Appeal

One of Scotland’s oldest distilleries, Glengoyne, is collaborating with one of the country’s best-loved contemporary artists to help contribute to The Glasgow School of Art Mackintosh Campus Appeal.

Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has commissioned John Lowrie Morrison OBE, or Jolomo as he is known, to paint a collection of seasonal paintings inspired by Glengoyne Distillery. Each of the four paintings will be printed on limited edition whisky gift tins and released annually, with Glengoyne making a donation to The Mackintosh Campus Appeal, to help The Glasgow School of Art recover from the consequences of the 2014 fire in the Mackintosh building.

‘Autumn Moon over Glengoyne’ is the first in the series from Jolomo and was officially unveiled today (10 October) at The Glasgow School of Art in Renfrew Street. Each of the remaining three paintings will be released annually until 2019, when The Mackintosh Campus Appeal is due to conclude. The four-year collaboration is expected to raise approximately £50,000 for the Appeal.

Benromach 2007 Hermitage at The Whisky Barrel – Scotch Whisky News

Benromach 2007 Hermitage at The Whisky Barrel – Scotch Whisky News

October 18th, 2016

Benromach 2007 Hermitage

Limited release from the Speyside distillery matured in wine casks from Hermitage Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée, in the northern Rhône region of France. A sweet, fruity dram, with succulent dark cherry and orange flavours. £40.12 Benromach Distillery was designed by Charles C. Diog and constructed at Forres in the Speyside whisky region for D. McCallum and F.W. Burickman in 1898. Following numerous periods of closure, it was purchased in 1993 by Gordon & MacPhail who charged up its single pair of stills in 1998 and have nurtured Benromach ever since. Striking new labelling combined with an increasing range of single malts is forging a very popular brand of single malt whiskies which includes Benromach Organic, Benromach Peatsmoke and Benromach 10 Year Old.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 145: Kavalan Podium

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, tries the Kavalan Podium. It is their virgin oak expression. Mixed with some refill bourbon and sherry casks to keep the strong influence of the new oak under control, the Podium turned out to be a very summery dram, quite straight forward but very pleasant indeed.

It isn’t every day that we see the release of 14 anything, let alone 14 of the finest and rarest scotches in the world. And yet, here we are, about to reap the benefits of an independent scotch distiller and blender deciding to unveil 14 bottlings of its world-class portfolio in the United States. The Loch Lomond Group is poised to make over a dozen jewels from the Loch Lomond Collection crown available to Americans. Scotch whisky lovers in the US are known for being adventurous and inquisitive, and the Loch Lomond Collection will surely satisfy American curiosity.

The Loch Lomond Group boasts over 250 years of distilling. Currently, the independent group owns the Loch Lomond malt and grain distillery, located at the head of the iconic Loch Lomond, itself located in the Highlands, one of the five distinct regions recognized by the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA). The Highlands is the largest whisky-producing region in Scotland, and is home to distilleries most American whisky lovers know very well: Oban, Dalmore and Glenmorangie, and the distilleries sometimes referred to as Island single malts, Highland Park, Talisker and Jura.

However, the Loch Lomond Group also owns one of the three operational distilleries in the Campbeltown region: Glen Scotia. Once known as Kinlochkilkerran (from the Gaelic for “head of the loch by the kirk of Ciarán”), the area once proclaimed itself “The Whisky Capital of the World,” a claim backed up by the fact that there were once 30 distilleries located there. That number has dwindled to just 10 percent. Prohibition and the Great Depression are thought to be major contributing factors to the closing of so many Campbeltown distilleries. Glen Scotia is joined by Glengyle and Springbank in this recognized region.

Also available to the US is the last of a limited and therefore precious stock of a single malt produced by a now silent Lowland distillery. This rare expression is Littlemill 25 Year Old Single Malt. The Littlemill distillery was located on the border of the Lowlands and the Highlands, and while the precise year it began producing whisky is unknown there is some belief that it started in 1772. There were several owners over the years who bought, expanded, renovated, experimented with, closed, and reopened Littlemill over the centuries. Most recently, Littlemill was closed in 1984, reopened in 1989, and closed again in 1994. In 2004, the distillery burned down and very little of the liquid was left behind to be salvaged. Because of the rectifying columns on the Littlemill stills, three types of whiskies were able to be produced by the Lowland distillery: Dumbuck (heavily peated), Dunglas (full bodied) and the eponymous Littlemill (light, traditional Lowland whisky). And now, for the first time ever, Americans who seek it out will be able to enjoy a dram of this extremely rare whisky.

This impressive portfolio should be available this month in Texas, California, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland/Washington DC, Georgia, South Carolina and Colorado, with other states to follow. Empire/Breakthru will handle distribution in New York state, while Breakthru will represent the portfolio in Illinois and New Jersey. Young’s Market will distribute Loch Lomond in California, RNDC will distribute in Florida, and United (Spec’s) will handle Texas. Those in Massachusetts should contact Horizon to get their hands on the Loch Lomond Collection, Savannah will cover distribution in Georgia, and Prestige will serve the Maryland/Washington DC area.

Study finds more than 1,300 active craft spirits producers in US

Study finds more than 1,300 active craft spirits producers in US

The American Craft Spirits Association (ASCA), International Wine and Spirits Research (IWSR) and Park Street released highlights from the Craft Spirits Data Project at the inaugural Craft Spirits Economic Briefing at the Nomad Hotel in New York. The Craft Spirits Data Project, announced earlier this year, is a research initiative to provide a solid and reliable fact-base for evaluating performance and trends in the U.S. craft spirit industry, the companies say.

The year-long Craft Spirits Project, which seeks to quantify the number, size and impact of craft spirits producers in the United States, is an effort led by ACSA, IWSR and Park Street, with collaboration from key government and industry organizations, including the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the National Alcohol Beverage Control Association (NABCA), American Beverage Licensees (ABL), the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA), and data partners Acturus, Liquor.com and Nielsen.

For the purposes of the Project, U.S. craft spirits were defined as distilled spirits that are produced in the United States by licensed producers that have not removed more than 750,000 proof gallons from bond, market themselves as craft, are not controlled by a large supplier and have no proven violation of the ACSA Code of Ethics, the companies say.

Key findings announced during the economic briefing include the following:

The U.S. craft spirits industry is growing rapidly. As of August 2016, there were 1,315 craft distillers active in the United States. The U.S. craft spirits market reached 4.9 million cases and $2.4 billion in retail sales in 2015, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.4 percent in volume and 27.9 percent in value between 2010 and 2015. The market share of U.S. craft spirits reached 2.2 percent in volume and 3 percent in value in 2015, up from 0.8 percent and 1.1 percent in 2010, respectively, it says.  Exports offer an additional runway for growth. Exports of U.S. craft spirits reached 523,000 cases in 2015, adding more than 10 percent of additional volume to U.S. craft distiller total sales. Employment and investment are on the rise among craft distillers. Employment in the U.S. craft spirits sector has been on the rise. In 2016, the industry employed more than 12,000 full-time employees. Investments by the U.S. craft industry have reached close to $300 million in 2015, which primarily covered the build-out of tasting rooms and other visitor experiences, equipment to increase production capacity and associated labor costs. There is the potential for craft spirits to achieve market share parity with craft beer. Many surveyed retailers and wholesalers see the potential for craft spirits to perform in line or better than craft beer with time. With craft beer market share currently at 11 percent in the United States, the craft spirits market is expected to continue to grow rapidly, the Project notes. Direct sales and home-state sales are crucial for small craft spirits producers. Direct sales at the distillery are important for all craft distillers, but are especially important for small craft producers (between zero and 100,000 proof gallons removed from bond annually), where direct sales make up 25 percent of all total sales. Home-state sales outside the distillery for small producers comprise 67 percent of all sales. The U.S. craft distilling market remains concentrated. Geographically, the market is concentrated as well. The Top 5 states by number of craft distilleries (California, New York, Washington, Colorado and Texas) make up 35.6 percent of the U.S. craft distiller market, and the next five states (Oregon, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Ohio and Florida) comprise an additional 16.5 percent of the market, it states.  Respondents provide actionable recommendations for continued growth. Surveyed distillers, retailers and wholesalers provided actionable recommendations to the U.S. craft spirits industry and its regulators to help the industry continue to grow. Craft spirits producers point to excise tax parity as one of the most critical keys to success in the future. Taxes on distilled spirits are among the nation's highest, comprising 54 percent of the typical spirits product's purchase price. As the Louisville, Ky.-based ACSA previously emphasized, craft spirits producers remain disadvantaged compared with the nation's craft brewers and small wineries that receive a reduction in their Federal Excise Tax (FET) rate. Today, a craft spirits producer pays six times more FET than a craft brewer and 17 times more FET than a small winery for equal quantities of beverage alcohol, it notes.

Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. celebrates 12th anniversary, releases commemorative beer

Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. celebrates 12th anniversary, releases commemorative beer

Fort Worth, Texas – Rahr & Sons Brewing Co., which started the North Texas craft beer movement in the fall of 2004, will celebrate its 12th anniversary on Nov. 5 with an extended tour & tasting event. The brewery will also release a commemorative beer in November.

The beer, Zwölfjahre, which means 12 years in German, is an American Wheatwine aged for 12 weeks in cabernet wine barrels with cherries. It is produced with a blend of German and American yeast and features a significant amount of wheat with hints of citrus hops. It will be available in 22-ounce bottles and on tap around Dallas-Fort Worth.

Zwölfjahre will debut on tap at the brewery’s 12th anniversary extended tasting event on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Attendees will receive a commemorative pint glass to sample a selection of more than 60 beers, including several rare and limited release varieties such as Bourbon Barrel Aged Regulator and 2014 Midnight Cab. The event will feature live music from local bands and food trucks.

VIP tickets are $55, which includes early access at 11 a.m., a t-shirt, food voucher and VIP area access with additional specialty beers. Regular admission is $20, which will allow access beginning at 12 p.m. and be limited to 1,000 pre-sale tickets. Tickets can be purchased at rahrandsons-brewing-company.ticketleap.com.

Since opening in 2004, owners Fritz and Erin Rahr’s close-knit staff has grown to more than 30 members, and the brewery has expanded distribution from Texas into Oklahoma. Rahr & Sons has also become entrenched in the local community, providing opportunities for hundreds of nonprofits to fundraise at bi-weekly tasting events; raising more than $50,000 for charitable causes through its annual Oktoberfest 5K; and giving a portion of sales from its The Fort Worth beer to the USS Fort Worth Support Committee twice yearly.

Cape May Brew Co. Releases Third Barrel Aged Beer, The Scupper, on October 22

Cape May Brew Co. Releases Third Barrel Aged Beer, The Scupper, on October 22

Cape May, NJ – Cape May Brewing Company sails again with the latest release in their Barrel Aged Series, The Scupper. Over two years in development, this third release will be available at noon on October 22nd, from their gift shop — The Brewtique — on 1288 Hornet Road in Cape May, NJ.

“The brews in the Barrel Aged Series keep getting better and better,” says co-owner and president Ryan Krill. “Two years ago, we put our faith in our Head Brewer Brian Hink to spearhead this program, and he’s surprised us time and time again.

“The Scupper is the best yet.”

The first two releases in the Barrel Aged Series have been enormously well received. For example, the first beer in the series — The Keel — received an astonishing score of 94 at Beer Connoisseur and has been well-reviewed by both fans of the brewery and well-respected beer experts nationwide — including from “Moscow” on the premier sour beer podcast, The Sour Hour.

“The Scupper is a beer with a very different flavor profile than our previous Barrel Reserve Series releases,” says Director of Brewing Operations Jimmy Valm, “and also one that will mature and age to a much greater extent than the other releases.”
