Troegs–Trade Our Cymbals for Splinter Black

31 January 2012

imageLooks like a set of cymbals belonging to Chris & John Trogner’s grandfather were “lost” at the brewery on 1/28…This from Chris & John

FOR TRADE: SPLINTER BLACK AND GOOD KARMA
A set of hi-hat cymbals was “borrowed” from Troegs Brewery sometime over the weekend of January 28. These cymbals belonged to our grandfather have sentimental value far greater than their monetary value. We will ask no questions upon their return and will offer the returnee two bottles of SPLINTER BLACK and a healthy dose of good karma. Thanks for your help.
Cheers - Chris & John Trogner

Captain Lawrence Moves from Pleasantville to Elmsford

imageLooks like Captain Lawrence Brewing has celebrated their final party at their Pleasantville facility and completed the move to Elmsford today.  Look for the grand opening of the Elmsford brewery to be held on Feb 4th.  The new brewery almost doubles the space available for the brewery & pub and increases their brewing capacity five fold.  Captain Lawrence produced 8900 barrels in 2011 and simply outgrew the facility they had been in since 2005.  Looks like they will be starting with all new equipment in Elmsford and the old brewing equipment is heading west to California.

Here’s the latest updated label from Bell’s Brewery for their Kalamazoo Stout (Stout brewed with brewer’s licorice).  This is a new figure on the 12oz bottle and I ;love the backing script, “Here’s where we tell you about this full-bodied stout’s delicious roast flavor.  But really, you’ve already got the bottle in your hand so why not find out for yourself?”  I can’t say I know show the now person on the label is, but I’m not sure I knew who the former guy was…so stay tuned.  I DO know this is from a series of portraits by a local artists, but not sure who these guys are.

Samuel Smith - The Pint Controversy

If you haven’t followed along, there’s a controversy going on in the UK with Samuel Smith.  Oddly enough the controversy involves Samuel Smith pubs serving pints that are “too full” and believe it or not the brewery is claiming the “topping” off of beers is costing them money and they are actually shutting down pubs over the issue.  Here’s a little video about the power of Samuel Smith Brewery.

New Belgium Brewing Delays Decision on East-Coast Brewery (Philly Still IN the Game)

image

Nothing terribly earth-shattering here, but the Coloradoan is reporting that New Belgium brewing will delay it’s decision on a location for it’s east-coast facility until at least march or April 2012….and they do confirm that it has NOTHING to di with Sierra Nevada’s recent decision to open in Mills River, NC.

Excerpts from the Coloradoan:
New Belgium Brewing Co. is looking to expand its production along the East Coast with a new facility. Simpson has confirmed they have narrowed the list of possible cities to four, including Asheville and Philadelphia, Pa., which were leaked by officials in those communities.

Originally New Belgium had planned to make an announcement by 2012 before pushing that to January or February. Simpson said now they are planning to make a decision by late March or April.

Simpson said the new timeline has nothing to do with Sierra Nevada, but rather is a matter of the brewery taking its time on a big commitment.

Shorts Brewing Raisin Apollo, Juicy Tree, Batch 1000 ControversiALE (aka Hangin’ Frank)

image
All sorts of exciting news coming from Shorts Brewing Co’s Facebook Page:

You asked for it and you got it! Last year's experimental IPA, Raisin Apollo, is being released in bottles! This is an extremely limited release that should make it to some stores within a couple weeks. Raisin Apollo - a double IPA fermented with golden raisins. A creation of Short's Brewer Curt Guntzviller, his likeness -- modestly covered by a hop leaf -- graces the label.

Another brand new beer is going on tap at our Pub today. Juicy Tree~ An experimental IPA made with blue spruce tips, juniper berries, and cranberries. Piney evergreen and sweet berries tingle the senses. After some slightly tart and tangy flavors up front, a harmonious balance between pleasant fruit sweetness and bitter pine is reached. A sizable malt bill, ample hop additions, and the floral fruity qualities of American Ale yeast all contribute to symmetry of this beer. The finish is laced with a resiny stickiness that flows naturally into a lasting bitterness. 7.5% ABV

We're not sure what the groundhog will say about the onset of spring, but we brewed our spring seasonal, ControversiALE, for the first time today. ControversiALE, formerly Hangin' Frank, will hit stores at the end of March.

The main part of batch 1000 of Huma Lupa Licious, a/k/a "AwwJeah" is going to be one of the most awesome Short's Brews ever. It's mutant cousin, "Mmkay" (also part of batch 1000), is also turning out amazingly. Lots of fun stuff to look forward to! We're anticipating that we'll release these sometime this spring. Cheers to your 1000th batch, Huma!

Update…here’s the 12oz ControversiALE label!

Sierra Nevada’s Mills River NC–Full Site Details

29 January 2012

image
Just thought you’d want to get the full details on the site where Sierra Nevada Brewing will be building their new east coast facility in Mill’s River, NC.  Based on he photo above I’m excited to hear that SN is going to great lengths to minimize their environmental impact.  Prior to the purchase several environmental, historical and wildlife impact studies were done by Henderson County, and this was imagea prime reason for SN’s choice of the Ferncliff Industrial Park.  SN will be the first occupant in the park & pull it’s water source form Asheville’s water system…another important part of the decision given Sierra Nevada will use over 77,000 gallons of water a day!  NCDOT will also play an important role with new roads to separate industrial traffic from visit traffic and provide good access to distribute SN beer.  For the full article, check out Blueridgenow.com (They did a great job!)…and for their photos check out this page.

Stone Brewing to Improve Kit Carson Park & Become Exclusive Concession

imageIt’s still only in the proposal phase, but Stone Brewing has offered to pay for improvements in Escondido’s Kit Carson Park in exchange for the exclusive concession rights in three different venues at the park.  Yes “concession” included beer, and this seems to be the only sticking point.  Apparently despite there already being a On The Border restaurant near the park’s softball fields that already serves alcohol, some residents are objecting to beer being served near where there are children’s activities.  With San Diego’s Sea World & Zoo Safari Park already serving alcohol, and with support from the Escondido City Council, it is likely the proposal made recently by CEO Greg Koch will succeed but stay tuned for further details.
