Nin Pin Cider & Ommegang Collaborate On The Lions Share Cans

31 July 2016

From Ommegang & Nine Pin Cider:
image


And now for something completely different: The Lion’s Share. our very first cider collaboration. We have teamed up with Albany, NY-based Nine Pin Cider Works, New York’s FIRST farm cidery, to create a new style of cider that combines locally grown apples and our signature house yeast.

Nine Pin crafts The Lion’s Share from a farmhouse blend of apples sourced from Samascott Orchards in Columbia County, and ferments with our Belgian yeast. The result is a Belgian-style cider with a smooth mouth feel and complex fruit and spice notes.

Nine Pin’s co-founder and cider maker Alejandro del Peral says: “We’re excited to finally release this incredible collaboration between Nine Pin and Brewery Ommegang. The Lion’s Share represents what two New York craft producers can do together in pursuit of establishing the Empire State as the leader in the craft beverage revolution.”

Our brewmaster Phil Leinhart says: “It’s very exciting to collaborate with Nine Pin on something totally different. Our house yeast brings such interesting tastes and aromas to “barley juice” that I can’t wait to see what it does with “apple juice”!

The Lion’s Share is 5.9% ABV and will be sold in 12 oz. cans only at Nine Pin and Cafe Ommegang.

If you’re in the Albany-area, you can try The Lion’s Share at Cider and Sliders on 8/4. BCTC-goers will also have the opportunity to try it at this weekend’s Belgium Comes to Cooperstown festival.

Cheers!

The beer ships out this week to distribution outlets in 25 states across the United States. It will be available to retailer and consumers while supplies last. A portion will be sold through Mikkeller’s webshop in Europe.

image

This update from Flying Fish:

We put out the first shipment of Flying Fish on September 4, 1996—a whopping 8 1/2s each of Extra Pale Ale and ESB!  We’ve grown a bit since then and as the kick off to our anniversary year, we’re doing a first-ever release of Exit Series beers--Exits 5, 7 and 14 on September 1.

Exit 5 is a celebration of New Jersey’s pinelands and is kettle soured saison with pine needles, goldenrod and wintergreen.

Exit 7 marks our state capitol and the state’s iconic breakfast meat, even if we don’t agree on what to call it:  Pork Roll Porter.  Yes, there is actual pork roll that was added to the kettle. This one of a kind beer features hints of cocoa, caramel, smoke and spice.

Exit 14 Imperial Pilsner recognizes the giant neon eagle that shines above on top of that really big brewery there. It’s rich malt structure is backed up by intense malt bitterness and aroma.

From Flying Fish:

NJ’s Flying Fish Celebrates 20 Years with Three Specialty Brews

September 2016 SOMERDALE, NJ –New Jersey’s most award-winning craft brewer, Flying Fish Brewing Co., couldn’t decide on one specialty beer to mark its 20th anniversary, so its BrewCrew is releasing three new Exit Series™ limited-release craft beverages to mark the occasion.  Sour Forage Beer from Exit 5, featuring hints of the New Jersey Pinelands, Pork Roll Porter from Exit 7, a toast to New Jersey’s favorite breakfast meat, as well as Imperial Pilsner from Exit 14, will all be launched with a ceremonial tapping on Thursday, 9.1.16 at Flying Fish’s Somerdale brewery headquarters at 4 p.m.  Pork Roll Queen 2016 Jamie Miller will be on hand for the occasion, along with special guests from the Pinelands Preservation Alliance, New Jersey Conservation Foundation, Trenton Pork Roll Festival and other surprise guests.

Of celebrating twenty years of Flying Fish, founder Gene Mulle says, “So much has changed in the New Jersey brewing scene since 1996.  When we opened, most folks didn’t get the idea of a locally brewed beer.  A lot of the time, we were asked if it was brewed locally, why wasn’t it the lowest priced option.  There were so few craft brewers; the next closest breweries to Flying Fish were Triumph in Princeton and Tun Tavern in Atlantic City.  Now, the consumer understands and appreciates the locally brewed specialty craft beverage; it shows in the marketplace as there are at least 20 breweries within 20 miles of us.  We have a loyal following that understands the nuances of the craft beverage and the work that goes into creating something special in each.  It’s a great time to be a New Jersey beer consumer.”

Muller adds, “Twenty years calls for a celebration.  We created three dynamic craft beverages that each capture an essential piece of New Jersey.  How can we choose just one for such a big anniversary?  This is our thank you to Flying Fish fans for twenty great years.” says Gene Muller, President and Founder of Flying Fish.

Up first is Exit 5, a Sour Forage Beer brewed with pine needles, wintergreen, and goldenrod.  This Saison style is part of the Beers Made by Walking project that encourages brewers to create a beer inspired by the environment local to their brewery.  Flying Fish worked with the Pinelands Preservation Alliance and the New Jersey Conservation Foundation to explore New Jersey’s Pinelands National Reserve.  The result is a medium bodied beer with a dry, tart herbal flavor.  The herbal notes of the foraged pine needles, goldenrod and wintergreen (all found on private land) blend perfectly with the peppery, earthy notes of the Saison.

Next is Exit 7’s Pork Roll Porter celebrating the State’s quintessential breakfast meat.  This deliciously dark brown caramel porter is enhanced by the addition of pork roll and spices in the brew kettle.  The aroma features notes of cocoa, with hints of maple and smoke from the peat-smoked barley.  The flavor showcases characters of chocolate, maple, toasted nuts and a bit of spice from the pork roll.

Exit 14 is represented by an Imperial Pilsner, clocking in at 8.5% alcohol by volume, and is a nod to that very large multinational lager brewery right off the Turnpike.  This pilsner lager style includes an international mix of hops from Germany, France and the US.  It’s a beer with many layers.  The first is a floral, fruity aroma.  Next, black currant reveals itself.  Another layer brings a complex spiciness.  All of these backed by a big, hoppy bitterness.

These are the twelfth, thirteenth and fourteenth brews released in the Flying Fish Exit Series.  All three beers are extremely limited and will be available in 750 ml bottles and a small number of kegs. Beers will be made available for purchase at the brewery as well as at retailers in NJ and PA.

Founders PC Pils Bottles & Cans Coming In October

imageWe brought you an early peek, and now the full details from Founders:

We promised that if we have big news to share, this is where you’ll find it first. Well, now’s the time. 

We’ve got a new one comin’ at you this fall: PC Pils. Look for this profoundly crushable, pleasantly crisp Pilsner in 6-pack bottles, 15-pack cans and on draft this October!

As big fans of this easy-drinking style, we knew we wanted to stay true to its characteristics while giving it our undeniable Founders twist. For us, that comes in the form of flavor-packed American hops. While Noble hops have been the preferred choice of Pilsner brewers around the world, we went with some of our favorite American varieties. Piney Chinook, pleasantly citrus Cascade and punchy Centennial make this an easy-drinker with floral hop characteristics.

We know one thing for sure: the name may be PC but the flavor behind the label isn’t.

Stay tuned to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for more details in the coming months, including where you’ll find PC Pils come fall.

=======================Official PR

Yup, it’s true. We’ve got a new one comin’ at you this fall: PC Pils. Look for this profoundly crushable, pleasantly crisp Pilsner in 6-pack bottles, 15-pack cans and on draft this October!

As big fans of this easy-drinking style, we knew we wanted to stay true to its characteristics while giving it our undeniable Founders twist. For us, that comes in the form of flavor-packed American hops. While Noble hops have been the preferred choice of Pilsner brewers around the world, we went with some of our favorite American varieties. Piney Chinook, pleasantly citrus Cascade and punchy Centennial make this an easy-drinker with floral hop characteristics. PC Pils clocks in at 5.5% ABV and 45 IBUs.

Perhaps just as exciting as announcing a new beer is also announcing that we will be also releasing that beer in a 15-pack can package. This is the first time since All Day IPA that we have offered any of our beers in a 15-pack can package. Reason to celebrate, for sure. Glass-lovers, don’t fret, we will also be offering PC Pils in 6-pack bottles. Suggested retail price will be $9.99 for 6-pack bottles and $17.99 for 15-pack cans.

PC Pils joins our single-hop darling, Mosaic Promise, and tropical hop delight, Azacca IPA, as the third and final addition to our seasonal lineup. See the full 2016 availability calendar here.

Want to get your hands on some? PC Pils will be released in the taproom in early September, with some markets seeing it shortly thereafter. It will be available across our remaining distribution footprint from October through the end of the year.

Hop Valley Brewing Acquired By MillerCoors 10th & Blake

imageFrom Hop Valley brewing & Miller Coors 10th & Blake:

Tenth & Blake Beer Company, the craft and import division of MillerCoors, announced today an agreement to obtain a majority interest in Eugene, Ore.-based Hop Valley Brewing Company. Hop Valley is known as a leader in the IPA space, producing a wide variety of acclaimed beers including Alphadelic, its flagship IPA, Citrus Mistress and Alpha Centauri.

“We are very proud of what we have achieved to date, & even more excited about the future for our company and our employees,” said Charles “Chuck” Hare, Hop Valley Brewing Company co-founder.  “From the get-go, it has always been about the beer, and we are looking forward to working with Tenth and Blake to get our beers – made right here – to even more consumers.”

Since opening their original brew pub in Springfield, Ore. in 2009, Hop Valley has stayed true to its name producing award-winning IPAs throughout the Pacific Northwest region. The brewer has since added to its production with a 30,000-square-foot brewery and tap room in Eugene, Ore. and currently distributes in Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho and Vermont.

“We’re thrilled to join forces with the Hop Valley team, to add an incredible roster of brands that complement our portfolio perfectly,” said Scott Whitley, president & CEO of Tenth and Blake.  “I’m looking forward to working with Chuck and his team to support the continued growth and success of their innovative IPAs and award-winning beers.”

“This is a great opportunity for us & our brewery,” said Trevor Howard, Hop Valley co-founder and brewmaster. “We will continue to craft all of our core brands and innovate with seasonal and small-batch brews like we always have – with the same commitment to quality, taste, and creativity.”

Hop Valley Brewing Company joins other leading crafts in the Tenth and Blake portfolio, including Blue Moon Brewing Company, Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company, Saint Archer Brewing Company and, following an expected closing in August 2016, Terrapin Beer Company. For more information on Hop Valley Brewing Company and its portfolio of brands, visit HopValleyBrewing.com.

Hop Valley Brewing Company will operate as a separate business unit of Tenth and Blake. The management team at Hop Valley will continue to lead the business and will retain an ownership interest. The transaction is expected to complete in the third quarter of 2016. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
