A Review of 10 Craft Beer Brands

A Review of 10 Craft Beer Brands

15 out of 20 bottles of beer in ratings of the best beer of all times is imperial stout.  It is the most remarkable style of beer and often the most vivid and memorable. Bourbon County is one of the best and it is hard to get as long as it is brewed in Illinois and is out of sale almost at once. A beer shop assistant in Amsterdam was telling a story that there was a few bottles of beer and it was difficult to get a regular delivery going. Dark Lord stout from Three Floyds Indiana is an apotheosis, which is able to buy once a year if to sign up for a special event visiting Indiana. 

There are a few breweries, which are worth of attention. Almost all of them are from Belgium and use spontaneous fermentation to receive the drinks. Those are Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen, Oud Beersel, Tilquin, Girardin and Boon. All of these breweries value handicraft trade and try not to chase the progress. 

Beer of 32% potency received through freezing in barrel-aged imperial Paradox stout.  There was a time when it was first in its kind. It is provided 40 ml in some bars and it is a right way to try it. 

Jai Alai is the most delicious kind of beer. There is more and more of a craft beer in America. There are no minuses about craft beer except for the habit to draw it. Cigar City is not afraid of habits which is why a rating site of Ratebeer put it on the fourth place in the list of the best breweries in the world. Jai Alai is hard and thick with orange and apricots as it usually is.  

Some really good beer started to appear in Russia last year basically. Now, there are a few breweries thinking in the right direction and AfBrew is one of them. They have a few kinds of beer and even a classic pumpkin ale traditional for Halloween.

Why No Brewery Won GABF Silver or Gold for Pumpkin/Squash Beers in 2016

Why No Brewery Won GABF Silver or Gold for Pumpkin/Squash Beers in 2016
Almanac Great American Beer Festival
Squash Beer
Pumpkin Beer Guidelines

“Category 6: Pumpkin/Squash Beer,” read Great American Beer Festival competition director Chris Swersey during the 2016 medal ceremony. “The Bronze: Butt-Ah Nut from BTU Brasserie in Portland, Oregon.”Swersey paused before continuing, then dropped the news: “No other medals were awarded in this category.”

Swersey paused before continuing, then dropped the news: “No other medals were awarded in this category.”

The crowd of brewers in the Bellco Theatre during the 2016 Great American Beer Festival groaned. Swersey, the calm, often-melodic emcee of the beer industry’s biggest prize glanced briefly from his awards announcement at the crowd. “The judges wanted to send a clear message about following the style guidelines,” he said, and then continued to announce the next category.

(MORE: 8 Beers We Want to Share with Fictional Presidents)

No silver or gold awarded for the Pumpkin/Squash category — is that possible? Can they do that? Even Swersey, speaking to me a couple weeks after the competition said it seemed rare for judges to omit two of the three medals in a category.

Down The Road Beer Co. Announces New Addition to its Session Beer Lineup: Patchwork Kilt Scottish Ale

Down The Road Beer Co. Announces New Addition to its Session Beer Lineup: Patchwork Kilt Scottish Ale

EVERETT, MA – October 31, 2016 – Down The Road Beer Company is pleased to announce the Patchwork Kilt Scottish Ale, the newest addition to the company’s session beer lineup. This malt-forward beer is hauntingly complex with deep, rustic notes of dried fruit and fresh honey. Patchwork Kilt clocks in at 4.5% ABV, the perfect balance for taking the edge off without losing your wits. This Ale pours a dark copper with a creamy head. The nose is thick and almost bready with a faint hint of currants. On the palate, Kilt is smooth, almost silky, with a delicate, honeyed sweetness that gives way to roasty malt and a homely smokiness.

Each beer from Down The Road draws on a character from folklore often with an emphasis on the region from which the brew originates. The Patchwork Kilt is an homage to a ghost story, the Headless Drummer of Edinburgh Castle, perfect given its Halloween! .

The Patchwork Kilt was brewed under contract at Dorchester Brewing Company in Dorchester, MA. This is the first beer Down The Road has brewed at Dorchester Brewing Company, Boston’s first and only dedicated partnership brewing facility. In response to strong customer demand for its Fresh, Local and Inspired beer, Down The Road will be opening its own Taproom and Brewery in Everett, MA in early 2017 and is also expanding its contract brewing relationships. The company hopes to brew additional styles at Dorchester Brewing Company later this year while maintaining its existing brewing relationships. Down The Road will be the first Brewing Partner for Dorchester Brewing which opened in July 2016.

To celebrate this partnership and the release of Down the Road’s Patchwork Kilt Scottish Ale, the companies are hosting a release party at Dorchester Brewing Company at 1250 Massachusetts Avenue in Dorchester on Friday, November 4th from 6-11pm. The event will include complimentary traditional Scottish fare from The Haven in Boston, as well as Down the Road Beer merchandise specials. Partners from Down the Road will be on hand to serve up the Kilt. For more information about the event, visit www.downtheroadbrewery.com or www.dorchesterbrewing.com. Starting this week, the Patchwork Kilt will be sold at retail stores throughout eastern Massachusetts in 16oz cans and on tap at select establishments.

TropiCannon Citrus IPA Now Available Year-Round!

TropiCannon Citrus IPA Now Available Year-Round!

November 1, 2016
 
BALTIMORE, MD – Heavy Seas Beer is excited to announce the return of it’s popular Citrus IPA, TropiCannon, now available year-round. The product will be available in all states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed. The release party at the brewery will be in December. Exact date TBD.
 
TropiCannon is exploding with bright citrus aroma and flavor. Creating an exciting new variation on our flagship Loose Cannon, TropiCannon clocks in at the same 7.25% ABV as it’s cousin, but packs a full blast of blood orange, grapefruit, mango and lemon flavor. We’ve downplayed some of Loose Cannon’s piney-ness and amped up the citrus by swapping Centennial and Palisade hops for Amarillo and even more Simcoe. We’ve introduced dried grapefruit, orange and lemon peel in the brewing process and added mango, blood orange and more grapefruit post-fermentation.

“TropiCannon was a pleasant surprise for us in 2016,” says Heavy Seas Founder, Hugh Sisson. “It was originally planned as a limited release product, but so many people kept asking for it that we decided we needed to make it available on a year-round basis. At least for now. This is part of what makes the beer industry so fun!”

The product specs are:

Style: Citrus IPA

ABV: 7.25%

IBU: 45

Saint Arnold Brewing to Become Voter Headquarters on Election Day

Saint Arnold Brewing to Become Voter Headquarters on Election Day

Those who participate in Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold will get this great sticker.

After Voting, Chill at Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold

HOUSTON, November 1, 2016 – Saint Arnold Brewing Co. (www.saintarnold.com) is encouraging everyone to vote and then head to the brewery, which will serve as a safe haven on Election Day. The oldest craft brewery in Texas will open its doors on Tuesday, November 8th, for Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold, providing voters a sanctuary from politics. Not to be confused with the election night gatherings thrown by the political parties, Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold will be a strictly unplugged affair.

Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold will start at 11 a.m. at Saint Arnold Brewing Co., 2000 Lyons Avenue in Houston, and continue until after polls close on the West Coast. It will serve as a TV-free zone and feature beer specials and stickers for voters proclaiming, “I Survived Election Day 2016.” Voters over age 21 who show proof of voting can purchase their first pint for $1.

“We encourage everyone to vote, and after voting, the most important public service we can offer is a place for voters to shelter in place away from the stress, anxiety and talking heads,” said Lennie Ambrose, Saint Arnold Director of Marketing and Events. “Beer has a long history of bringing people together and fostering a sense of kinship, commonality and community, which is what Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold is all about.”

Pollsters say feelings of stress and anxiety are shared by both political parties. A recent Pew Research Center survey of more than 4,500 adults found that nearly 60 percent of Americans on social media are stressed out by online political interactions. More than a third of social media users are “worn out” by the amount of political content they encounter. The sense of being worn out is not a partisan phenomenon – 38 percent of Democrats and 37 percent of Republicans describe themselves that way.

Santa Fe Brewing Company Makes the Move from Bottles to Cans

Santa Fe Brewing Company Makes the Move from Bottles to Cans

Santa Fe, New Mexico – Santa Fe Brewing Company (SFBC) is excited to announce that they have transitioned all of their everyday beers to cans, discontinuing all 12 oz. bottle packages effective immediately. This transition comes with other big news for the longest tenured brewery in New Mexico – the addition of a state-of-the-art canning line from manufacturer Catelli Food Technology (CFT).

Switching from bottles to cans was a decision to increase capacity, reliability, and quality, but SFBC couldn’t do it without an equipment upgrade. SFBC began canning back in 2010 with the release of their flagship Happy Camper IPA in 12-ounce cans, but their equipment and processes had limitations. Their new CFT Master Can Tronic RS 16 does many things the previous canning line and bottling lines could not, such as minimizing oxygen pickup to Mega Brewer levels. Reducing oxygen pick up increases shelf stability, resulting in beer that stays fresh longer.

Cans are superior to bottles in many other facets as well. The lighter weight of the cans means less expensive shipping and fewer shipments, reducing the brewery’s carbon footprint. They are also more portable and a better choice when recreating outdoors.

“The quality is much better with cans. You may not recognize the State Pen Porter, Pale Ale, or Nut Brown by their new package, but you will definitely remember your favorites by taste,” says SFBC owner Brian Lock.

Brewmaster Bert Boyce had this to say about the new line. “We can produce five times the number of cans per minute than we could previously. We can easily change over to a different style to meet more complicated needs. And the new line should be much more reliable from an uptime and quality perspective. Right now the canning line is purring along at about 140 cans per minute, but will able to fill much faster as the demand for our beers continues to grow.”

Grand Teton Brewing’s intent for their annual Coming Home Holiday Ale series is to release a special beer in November for enjoyment with special friends on a special occasion during the holiday. This year’s version is an American-Style Rye Wine brewed with Southern Idaho 2-row pale malted barley combined with German rye and specialty malts.

The spicy rye is complemented by about five pounds of bold American hops per barrel. Chinook and Galena hops developed and grown in Idaho, along with Idaho-grown Bravos give this strong ale a decidedly American flavor.

Piney floral hops are evident when Coming Home is enjoyed fresh. Cellaring will enable these flavors to mellow, allowing the malt to shine with additional notes of raisin and fig.

Alcohol by Volume: 10.0% • Original Gravity (Plato): 21˚ P
International Bitterness Units: 75 • Color (Lovibond): 25˚

Coming Home 2016 Holiday Ale will be available November 1, 2016 in bottle-conditioned 12/750 mL cases1/6 and 1/2 bbl kegs.

Dogfish Head Beer for Breakfast bottles debut this month, World Wide Stout returns

Dogfish Head Beer for Breakfast bottles debut this month, World Wide Stout returns

[Press Release:]

(Milton, DE) – Dogfish Head is delivering double the delight this holiday season with the release of two dark and delicious, winter seasonal stouts. Beer for Breakfast, a tricked out full-bodied stout, and World Wide Stout, a roasty, ageable port-like brew, will be available for hearty enjoyment in limited supply beginning November 7th.

Beer for Breakfast serves up a smorgasbord of thoughtfully sourced ingredients for the blue plate aficionado, all of which are to be savored in this flavorfully robust, cozy stout. Coffee, brown sugar, maple syrup, and a myriad of additional yummy ingredients provide a good mornin’ foundation for this breakfast themed, feast of a brew. The iconic star of the Beer for Breakfast stout is Rapa Scrapple – a classic Mid-Atlantic staple to the most important meal of the day. Scrapple is affectionately described as an ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ type of meat as it’s a patty made from pork scraps, cornmeal and spices. “The recipe for our original breakfast beer Chicory Stout, just turned 21 this year. Legal drinking age. To mark this momentous occasion we have taken a couple decades experience brewing with culinary goodness and combined our favorite pure, all-natural breakfast ingredients into a beer that we will think you will agree is the most important meal of the day,” said Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head founder and president. Clocking in at 7.4% ABV and 30 IBU’s, dark beer aficionados will enjoy the aromatic notes of coffee and smoke, subtle maple and spice.

Rich, roasty and complex, World Wide Stout is arriving for an encore just in time for winter coziness this holiday season. Brewed with a bulk-ton of barley, this ageable ale clocks in at 15-20% ABV and has a depth more in line with a fine port or a rich madeira. World Wide debuted in the winter of 1999, and the staying power of this brew is indisputable. “Like Fort and 120 Minute IPA, World Wide Stout only gets better in its golden years. Allow it to mature in your beer cellar and you’ll find the heat of the booze fades into the background and the port notes and roastiness take over and merge harmoniously into a timeless aged ale”, said Calagione.

Beer for Breakfast and World Wide Stout will be available on taps and retail shelves in D.C. and the 30 states that currently provide delicious DFH beers. Savor these stouts with someone you love. For more information, visit dogfish.com.

[Press Release:]

(Stratford, CT) – Two Roads Brewing Company of Stratford, CT today announced the expansion of their brewing campus with the planned addition of a 25,000 square foot sour and barrel-aging brewery. Situated on 2.5 acres of newly acquired land adjoining the existing brewery, this $12 million facility will feature a 50 barrel ROLEC brewhouse, foudres, a coolship, and storage for 2000 wood barrels. It will also have a tasting room that can accommodate 120 visitors overlooking a wetlands preserve.

Two Roads CEO Brad Hittle said, “with our sour beer program growing and gaining accolades, including the recent gold medal for our Hexotic brand in the Belgian Style Lambic or Sour category at the Great American Beer Festival, and with our existing brands growing rapidly, we felt this was the right time to expand into a new facility. This will increase our overall capability to produce unique, rare and delicious beers while protecting our main brewery from any wild yeast cross-contamination.”

Partner Phil Markowski also highlighted that his new role as Master Brewer will remove him from the day-to-day brewing operations at Two Roads and will free up his time to fully concentrate on new product development as well as quality and brewing innovations at both brewing facilities. “I couldn’t be more proud about our beers and my team of brewers, and am extremely excited about this new horizon for Two Roads and for me personally. Having a first-class barrel aging and souring brewery at my hands is a dream come true,” Markowski commented.

Right Brain Brewery Launches Naughty Girl Mint Stout in Six-Packs

Right Brain Brewery Launches Naughty Girl Mint Stout in Six-Packs

Traverse City, MI, October 28, 2016 – As the weather gets colder and some craft beer drinkers gravitate towards darker beers, Right Brain Brewery is happy to greet them with Naughty Girl Mint Stout six-packs. Naughty Girl Stout, previously available only in 22 oz bottles and on draft, takes inspiration from a well-known mint chocolate cookie, delivering complex chocolate notes with a cooling minty finish.

“Right Brain Brewery adheres to a strict ‘no extracts’ brewing policy, and Naughty Girl Stout is no exception. Six malt varieties, including Roast Barley and Chocolate Malts, provide the chocolaty notes. Biodynamic Peppermint grown by Light of Day Organics provides an authentic mint flavor,” says owner Russell Springsteen. Right Brain Sales and Marketing teams are very excited about this release, both in terms of increased shelf space presence, and the fun creative design of packaging. “Our designer created four different labels for Naughty Girl Stout, each with a different girl scout riding on a motorcycle. Consumers can expect to get multiple versions in our new six pack offering,” says Marketing Coordinator Jeff Houser.

The Biodynamic Peppermint used in Naughty Girl Stout is not the only product Right Brain has used from Light of Day Organics Farm. The brewery also sources certified Biodynamic Lavender for use in their light lavender ale, Blue Magic. Angela Macke, a Registered Nurse and Founder of Light of Day, says, “We have been fans of Right Brain and their talented team for many years, so to partner on these projects has been very satisfying and a whole lot of fun for our farm family! The botanicals we grow here are exceptionally high in essential oils, making them a treasured compliment to their already high quality beer.” Demeter Biodynamic is considered the highest standard for commercially grown food throughout the world, and Light of Day Organics, located in Leelanau County, is currently the only certified Demeter Biodynamic Farm in the state of Michigan.

Naughty Girl Stout is available now throughout the state of Michigan in 12 oz six-pack bottles, 22 oz bottles and on draft.

Rogue Farms Is Like Santa’s Workshop, But for Hop Lovers

Rogue Farms Is Like Santa’s Workshop, But for Hop Lovers
taquina-hops
revolution-hops
rebel-hops
newport-hops
liberty-hops
independent-hops

Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon, is a little like Santa’s workshop for hop lovers. You can walk through hop fields, watch the harvest during the late summer months and bask in that beautiful nose tingling, palate watering hop aroma — and it’s all about 75 miles from Rogue’s brewery in Newport.

Rogue President Brett Joyce says the 2008 global hop crisis was the impetus that got them thinking long term about being more self-reliant in terms of ingredients.

(MORE: A Beer Lover’s Guide to Portland’s Buckman Neighborhood)

“If you believe necessity is the mother of invention, then this is a case study in that,” he says. “It was really at that point that we wanted to make sure we didn’t have to tell our brewmaster, whose nickname is ‘More Hops,’ that we didn’t have more hops, or the hops he wanted, to put into our beer.”

Rogue Farms was born and they began farming the land in 2008.

When combined with a blend of spices including caraway and coriander, this mixture brings out the fresh tartness of the cranberries and creates a beautiful balance.

“RIPE helped us source the cranberries and processed them exactly the way we wanted. The cranberries are 100% traceable in origin, having come directly from the growers in Massachusetts,” said Two Roads Master Brewer Phil Markowski. “At our request they retained the seeds and skins of the cranberries after being pressed in order to contribute additional complexity to the brew. The seeds and skins provide soft tannins that add nuance and structure similar to winemaking methods.”

Bog Wild is 6.5% ABV and will be available in early November in 750mL bottles and limited draft.

JDub’s now interviewing distributors in Georgia

JDub’s now interviewing distributors in Georgia

[Press Release:]

(Sarasota, FL) – In the near future, JDub’s beers will be available in Georgia. JDub’s is currently interviewing distributors in the Peach State and we hope to be on shelves in stores and on draft lines soon. Recent IRI data gives us optimism for the expansion, which shows that over the past month, JDub’s is the #1 selling Florida craft brewery amongst all beers sold in Florida liquor stores. (IRI sales data snippet available upon request) Moreover, we have already built a solid relationship with Kroger that will be a focus of ours moving into the new territory.

“Kroger is a giant account, for any brewer in America. We’ve been eager to get our beers in the Kroger stores for a long time and are thrilled to roll up our sleeves and being working with them. They truly ‘get’ craft beer.” Jeremy “JDub” Joerger

Bell Cow Milk Chocolate Porter. JDub’s is thrilled to announce that due to a high-demand for our Nitro version of Bell Cow Milk Chocolate Porter, we have decided to discontinue production of the CO2 version in draft form and from this point forward, will only produce Nitro Bell Cow on draft. For the foreseeable future, canned Bell Cow will still be in CO2 form. Feedback similar to the comments below gives us confidence this will be a good move for the brewery:

“Reserving a nitro line for J Dubs’ Bell Cow was a great decision for our locations,” said Legends’ owner Jim Burdo. “It has quickly become a staple of our draft lineup. Guest feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Bell Cow has out performed our 2nd nitro line 3 to 1.” – Pat Murphy & Jim Burdo, Legends Pub and Tap 72, Sarasota, FL
