Alaskan Releases First Ever Fall Seasonal - Pumpkin Porter

image
From Alaskan Brewing:

Alaskan Pumpkin Porter is the newest seasonal release from Juneau-based Alaskan Brewing Company, available in 12-oz bottles and on draft in the 17 states where the brewery now distributes. Introduced as a Pilot Series last year, response was so strong that a seasonal slot was a natural next step.

“We’ve been known for our Smoked Porter for years, so we built on that foundation to give a unique perspective on a pumpkin beer,” said Alaskan brewer Brent Kesey. “We wanted to give that great pumpkin pie flavor but not go overboard on sweetness, and that’s where the smoky flavor comes in.”



By using some of Alaskan’s famous alder wood-smoked malt in the brew, this pumpkin ale avoids a cloying taste and instead leaves a clean, slightly smoky aftertaste. The resulting robust, full-bodied porter also has a, frankly, crazy amount of pumpkin – over 11 pounds per barrel.



A native plant of North America, pumpkins were first used in beer in colonial America as a substitute for hard-to-find malt, and none other than the father of our country George Washington had a highly touted recipe.



The long daylight hours in the summer makes Alaska home to some of the world’s largest pumpkins. The pumpkin creates a smooth richness that provides some comfort while the Alaskan nights grow longer and colder. In addition to the pumpkin and smoked malt, brown sugar and holiday spices are added to create an aroma and flavor reminiscent of grandma’s pumpkin pie.



Alaskan Brewing’s take on this American tradition will be available through October of this year.

Boulevard Hibiscus Gose Hitting Kansas City Shelves This Week

image
From Boulevard:

Hibiscus Gose, our second Backroads Beer, begins hitting shelves in the Kansas City area this week. A revival of a Boulevard employee holiday beer from a couple years back, Hibiscus Gose is our take on a traditional German style of low alcohol, sour wheat beer. It’s very important to note that this beer is a gose, not a gueuze which is a blend of Belgian lambic beers.

The somewhat obscure style of gose is seeing a return to prominence in American craft brewing as brewers seek to brew lower ABV beers with intense flavors. The style of gose was born in the German town of Goslar although it has become most closely associated with the town of Leipzig where it became more popular. Stylistically speaking, a gose is composed of a malt bill featuring a large percentage of malted wheat combined with pilsner malt. To mimic the somewhat salty water of the region in which gose was born, we added sea salt during the boil as well as coriander, a spice which would have been used in original interpretations of the style. We use the process of brewhouse souring to acidify the wort before boiling. To accomplish this, we lauter the wort off of the grain and inoculate with our house strain of
lactobacillus. Once the wort has dropped to the desired pH, 3.6 in this case, we boil the beer as though it were a normal batch of beer. Near the end of the brewing process, during whirlpooling, we infuse the wort with dried hibiscus flowers while it rests in the whirlpool vessel waiting to be cooled and transferred to a fermenter. This addition of hibiscus flowers infuses a vibrant pink hue and a slight citrus/cherry flavor and aroma.
When you pour your first bottle of Hibiscus Gose, expect a beer with a bright pink body and creamy white head to fill your glass. A slightly salty aroma with a touch of coriander and citrus/cherry notes wafts from the beer. The leading flavor is a lemony tartness obtained from the brewhouse souring process with subtle salt and coriander notes. Hibiscus Gose finishes crisp and dry with a slightly lingering sourness that’s tempered by the sea salt, coriander, and hibiscus flowers.

We are currently formulating the recipe for our next Backroads Beer which will be a wet hopped ale featuring
Nugget hops shipped to us within hours of harvesting. While we haven’t nailed down a particular style yet, our goal is to create a beer that serves as a vehicle for delivering huge hop flavor and aroma from the sticky, resinous wet hops. Since the production of this beer is dependent upon the hop harvesting season, we expect to brew this beer in late October for an early November release.

Lakefront Brewery Announces Expansion Plans

imageFrom Lakefront:

MILWAUKEE (August 20, 2014)
– Lakefront Brewery, Inc., Milwaukee’s largest producer of craft beer, is once again eyeing a potential expansion site. The brewery today announced it has an accepted offer to buy land at 1890 N. Commerce St. The site, which was formerly slated for a condo development, is on the east side of the Holton Street Bridge, adjacent to the existing Lakefront facility at 1872 N. Commerce St.



According to Lakefront Brewery Owner Russ Klisch, plans are to purchase lot next door and build on it as soon as it is financially feasible for the brewery. The brewery plans to relocate its packaging lines and additional fermentation tanks at the new facility. The brew house would retain all of its existing fermentation tanks and would use the space vacated by packaging for barrel aging.



The expansion is being driven by increased demand. Lakefront now brews 40,000 barrels per year, with production having nearly doubled in the past two years alone. The second brewing location will provide Lakefront with the ability to expand its production and distribution and at capacity would provide an additional 40 full-time jobs to Wisconsin over the next several years. The company has also begun expanding its warehouse facilities; last week, Lakefront began work on an addition to its cold storage facility at 218 E. Keefe Ave., which could add as many as 30 jobs (10 full-time).



“We are taking a very measured approach to expansion, and acquiring this land is an initial step,” said Klisch. “However, the craft beer market just continues to grow and we need to expand production or we won’t be able to keep up with demand.”



A neighborhood meeting to review the plans for the Commerce Street expansion and to answer questions from the community is scheduled for7:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 25 at the brewery.

It is with much regret and a bit of relief that we at Gordon Creek Brewery announce that we're pulling the plug.

We'll return to the consumer side and pursue home brewing to satisfy our artistic desire. We want to thank those in the community that supported us; Stokes Distributing, Magnolia Beverage Company, Inc. and all of the retail locations that took a chance on us. Cheers!
