Chip the Beer Guy Rock 107 – Berwick Brewing Co

19 February 2010

OneGuyTom&Guy It’s always exciting for me to hear our local breweries represented on our local beer radio show, and of course today is no exception.  The featured guests on today’s Chip the Beer Guy show were Tom Clark & Guy Hagner from Berwick Brewing Company.  Today we sampled the new Berwick Brewing Co Porter called Bill’s Porter.  This is a traditional Porter that uses German Munich Malts to get it’s distinctive taste and as it turns out this beer is named after Tom’s father Bill.  It should also be noted that Bill’s Porter has become their second largest selling beer and you can get Bill’s Porter on tap locally at Sabatinis & Elmer Sudds.

The guys also delivered some great news for fans of the Berwick Brewing Co.

The really big news of the day is that Guy & Tom are expanding the brewing system from a 2bbl system to a 7bbl system.  We’re apparently drinking so much Berwick Brewing Co beers that Guy can’t keep up.  This upgrade will allow for not only larger batches of beer for the tap room, but more importantly it will give Guy & Tom the ability to bottle Berwick Brewing Co beers in the future.  I had a peek at the bottling lines Tom was working on, and it’s very exciting for me to hear that this may be happening soon.  Watch for 12oz, 22oz AND even the possibility of 16oz returnable's in our local markets in the future.



Finally, with St Patricks Day coming soon, Guy announced the upcoming release of Berwick Brewing Co Barleytown Stout.  Turns out the sister city of Berwick in the UK has a malt house called

 

Simpsons Malt, and Guy will be using some of the Simpson Malts in his Barleytown Stout.  Very exciting to see everything going on at Berwick Brewing Co, so be sure to get out and check out the tap room and try some of the great Berwick Brewing Co beers now available on tap locally.

 



Cheers guys (and Ruthie)….great show and great beers.  (and PS NO I don’t think Blind Robins count for Good Friday).
