I blinked and it was 2014…
I hope the Holidays didn’t disappoint everyone out there. I personally had a great time celebrated with friends and relatives. The Brewery kept humming while I was gone on a vacation. So now that I have gotten back and caught my breath there are quite a few new beers to talk about.
Sour Fans out there can be excited about the Belgian Golden Sour. It is a half sour, so the puckering factor is muted just a bit. Plus the addition of Golden Raisins in both the kettle and the fermenter help round of the malt sweetness just enough.
Krinkle’s Krook Stout hit the taps. It is our take on the Peppermint Chocolate Stout. The chocolate notes from the Chocolate malt and the Cacao nibs are great. Plus with the addition of peppermint candies as well as fresh mint to the Brew give you a fresh minty finish to the beer that you don’t normal get in a stout. I mean what else are you supposed to do with all those candy canes left over after the holidays…Make a beer with them!
Night Nurse IPA is on too. This is the Black Rye IPA that has all the hop resin/flavor that you IPA fans are looking for. It is one of the beer being showcased in the Hops and Heat Social next Wednesday. It is going to be paired with a Mole sauce! Super excited for this event.
Or Bock finished lagering out and is tasting great. One of those beer we tried to hit as close to style as possible so you can be transported to Germany while drinking it. The beer has a malty front with a touch of cooked caramel that all finished up so clean and smooth. Yum.
We are transferring our British IPA tomorrow. This beer takes traditional British malts and hops and use some American hopping techniques on it. Bread-y-ness form the way the British malts and yeast play off each other are there, but then the slightly earthy and slightly citrus hops come though on the finish.
