By the time this newsletter goes out we will most likely be out of our new Springtime beer, Karnival Kolsch. There may be a few cases available in a few stores, but most of our local distributors sold out of this beer very quickly. This beer was a huge success as the new spring seasonal, and we would like to thank everyone for supporting this change, and for all of the positive feedback! Due to the extreme popularity of this new style, we will most likely brew another batch of Kolsch for release sometime during the summer. We will also release this beer a month early next year to extend its availability.
Moving forward to our summertime favorite, Heifer-in-Wheat will be available in all packages from early May through most of the summer. This beer is a traditional South German Hefe-Weizen. It is unfiltered, and offers a refreshingly crisp flavor with hints of banana and clove. I use this beer to make pancakes, and they are to die for! Simply replace up to 100% of the water used to make your pancake batter with Heifer-in-Wheat, and you will be amazed at how delicious they are! This same concept can be used for waffles as well. Once you try this, you won’t feel the same about those boring old pancakes and waffles.
We are currently offering several beers as Brewer's Reserves. The first is a creation by brewer Gary Gagliardi, which is a German-style pale ale called Gemutlichkeit Ale. This beer is available on tap at the bar, as well as in cork finished 750ml bottles. The second Reserve available is our old spring seasonal, the yummy Honey Double Mai Bock. This beer is also available on tap at the bar, and in 750ml bottles for takeout. Also, I believe there are still a couple of cases of the Old Abominable Barleywine available in big bottles. Keep in mind that all of our Brewer’s Reserve beers are extremely limited, so if you want them, you should get them while you can! Keep drinking good beer, support your local brewery, and don't forget to check out all the latest news, brews, and upcoming events on our website.
