New from Ballast Point: White Wine Barrel-Aged Sour Wench!

6/4 Packs Item # 05713  $67.00

1/6 Bbls Item # 05714  $195.00

This pretty lady will make you pucker. Ballast Point is kicking off a new Trade Street Collection with a barrel-aged version of award-winning sour, introducing a new White Wine Barrel-Aged Sour Wench available nationwide.

The innovative new brew is a seven percent-ABV ale with blackberries aged in chardonnay and sauvignon blanc barrels. After resting in both wine barrels for more than six months, White Wine Barrel-Aged Sour Wench emerges with aromas of freshly sliced white peach, citrus, woody oak tannins and rich vanilla. With every sip, beer drinkers will taste hints of crushed berries and ripe apricots with a buttery smoothness from the chardonnay barrels followed by a dry finish from the sauvignon cask. Easy-drinking for a barrel-aged beer, it’s tart, refreshing, and delightfully smooth.

Ballast Point Director of Barrel Aging Steve Anderson said the goal with the beer was to add complexity while maintaining the flavor profile of Sour Wench, which won a 2017 Silver medal in the nation’s largest beer festival and competition.

“With barrel aging, we’re giving tribute to three different attributes – the oak barrels, the wine that was in them before and the base beer,” said Anderson. “The blend that’s in the White Wine Barrel Aged Sour Wench bottles is a really nice layering of both the beer and the wine barrels, making it more complex and an amazing end product.”

Castle Island Wins Big at the Great American Beer Festival®

 

Norwood, MA – Coming off a recent gold medal win for American Lager at the U.S. Open Beer Championship, just two months later Castle Island Brewing Co. (CIBC) celebrates another victory at the 2018 Great American Beer Festival® (GABF®). CIBC took home the silver medal in the American-Style Lager or American-Style Malt Liquor category at the Brewers Association’s annual GABF, one of the largest commercial beer competitions in the world.

CIBC was recognized at the festival’s ceremony which was held on September 22nd at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. An international panel of 293 expert judges tasted through 8,496 entries that spanned 102 beer-style categories. CIBC’s silver medal win in the American-Style Lager or American-Style Malt Liquor category saw 65 entrants.  

American Lager is a staple at the Norwood taproom and can be found in bars, restaurants, and at retailers throughout Massachusetts. This easy-drinking beer comes in at 5.2% ABV, emanates a light gold glow, and smells of biscuit and wheat with notes of light malt sweetness, subtle stone fruit, and an undercurrent of earthy, herbal notes. It finishes semi-dry in large part to the Czech yeast utilized in fermentation.

The CIBC team is extremely honored to accept this recognition at a national level. Head Brewer, Matt DeLuca, reflects on what this means for the brewery, “I’m incredibly proud of our production team and this award is a testament to their professionalism and hard work, day in and day out. We’ll enjoy this one for sure, but we’re already looking forward to the next one.”

Adam Romanow, company President & Founder, continues the sentiment, “We’re all super pumped to celebrate not one but two monster victories for Lager this year. We’ve always had a soft spot for this beer, but bringing home medals for this beer magnifies our Lager love and helps to put the brand on the map.”

American Lager made its debut in early March 2017 and has become a core brand at the brewery and taproom with the help of five additional 60BBL fermenters that were installed in early 2018. The new equipment alleviated some capacity constraints allowing for American Lager to become a mainstay in CIBC’s lineup. This silver medal win at GABF in the American-Style Lager or American-Style Malt Liquor category has only further solidified its place in the brewery’s portfolio.

If curious folks are not able to make it down to CIBC’s taproom and retail store, then the closest location to purchase six-packs of these 16-ounce blue, white, and gold cans as well as American Lager on draft can be found here: https://castleislandbeer.com/find-our-beer/

With a focus on American-style ales and lagers, we make offerings that are both unique and approachable.

New!  Switchback MÄRZEN FEST BIER!

4/6 Packs Item # 54408  $31.00

Märzen (“Maer-tsen”), our first lager, is made in the traditional fest beer style. Often called Oktoberfest Lagers, these rich fest beers are great for any festive occasion. Switchback’s Märzen is wonderfully malty with a balanced and crisp hop character. Our Märzen is aged six full weeks using a traditional lagering process. Following in that tradition, the beer is naturally conditioned, using the yeast to create carbonation in the aging tank. Going through a slow, multi-step fermentation process allows this beer to highlight the best characteristics of a lager. It is all about the malt and the hops, with the yeast staying in the background flavor-wise, keeping the beer exceptionally clean, crisp, and refreshing. Like all Switchback beers, Märzen is not filtered. The clarity is from the long aging process, whereby the cloudiness has slowly settled out of the beer.  (5.2%)

In 1995, we crafted our first autumn seasonal—Pumpkin Ale. At the time, Oktoberfest beers were in high demand. For our version, we wanted to create a beer that was a little different than what was already out there and complemented the season by highlighting the flavors we’ve all grown to love during this time. It was so popular that it became the first nationally available pumpkin ale. Harvest Pumpkin Wheat, as it’s called now, is crafted with pumpkin and spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice for a taste you’ll want to fall right into.  (5.7%)

From our LOCAL Salem Brewery!  Notch Slanted & Enchanted!

½ Bbls Item # 33802  $175.00

I’ll let the Man himself describe the brew!  Chris Lohring!

SLANTED & ENCHANTED: LUXE & REDUXE

Slanted & Enchanted displays all the classic elements of a German pale lager, yet with a dry hopping of newer German varieties Hallertau Blanc, Mandarina Bavaria and Huell Melon. It also says Grüngeist on the label, but we were not happy with the current crop, so that will return later this year as part of the hop blend. We took advantage of our brewhouse capabilities and performed a single decoction for a great malt structure. Natural carbonation is created through “spunding” and helps build a beautiful lace, while the hops hit you with grape, peach and citrus. It’s what a loyal Zwickel drinker would reach for when they want some additional hop character (that would be me) without all the interference an ale yeast can bring. It’s not an IPL, it’s a hoppy lager. 

I love this beer and hope you do too. We went through multiple recipe and process iterations to get it right, and that’s part of the reason we stopped making it last year. Initially brewed at our Salem brewery in 2016, we were to scale this up at one of our contract partners in 2017, but we had a difficult time doing that. Instead, we stopped producing it while further testing process and recipes in Salem for feedback from the Tap Room. I’m thrilled with the result and happy to be canning this monthly in Salem. It was not a planned path, but that’s a bit of Notch’s DNA.

The addition of rolled oats in the mash tun and lactose, commonly referred to as milk sugar, in the wort kettle lend a round, silky mouthfeel to the beer.

2/12 Pack 12 oz Cans Item # 33030  $28.70  ($4.00 off 7 cases, $5 off 15)

From the fishermen who have fought the harsh waters of the Northeast for generations, to the family clam bakes and lobster boils that celebrate their well-earned bounty, seafood is part of the fabric of every New Englander.  We work hard, take nothing for granted, and have a good time doing it.  When we crack our first lobster of the season, it’s a big deal – an occasion to indulge, reflect, and party with friends and family.  Since 1890, Narragansett has been the beer that fishermen toil to earn, and the beer the rest of us salute them with.  This beer honors the risk and hails the reward that comes with every “Fresh Catch”. 

Fresh Catch is a supremely refreshing blonde ale that’s dry hopped with Citra for a crisp grapefruit finish.   Aromas of citrus and passion fruit are very evident, but mild on the palate.  Brewed to be the perfect pairing with shellfish or whitefish.  (4.2%)

“The most balanced IPA on the market” -Wall Street Journal

Brewed using a boatload of intense Northwest hops, we boil this continually hopped IPA for a full 60 minutes, adding more than 60 hop additions continuously to create a bold and timeless flavor. Continually hopped to deliver a pungently, citrusy, grassy hop flavor without being crushingly bitter, 60 Minute IPA is a surprisingly sessionable IPA for the craft enthusiast.  You’ll quickly see why this sequel has become our best selling beer, and why you’ll find yourself coming back to it again and again.  (6%)

SeaQuench Ale is a session sour mash-up of a crisp Kolsch, a salty Gose, and a tart Berliner Weiss brewed in sequence with black limes, sour lime juice and sea salt to make this the most thirst-quenching beer Dogfish Head has ever brewed.

“…may be the world’s most thirst-slaying beer.”
- Men’s Health

When we opened our geographically-enamored seafood restaurant Chesapeake & Maine in 2016, we wanted to honor its coastal roots by developing this sessionable, seafood-pairing beer that takes you to a place of briny seawater on sunny beach days. Our experimentation focused on three thirst-quenching styles with German roots, but no single style quite hit the mark and mood we were going for … so we blended them and the result was the tart and refreshing beer we were looking for!  Partnering with the National Aquarium, we replicated sea salt sourced from the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and added sea salt from the coast of Maine to honor the Atlantic coast we love so much.  (4.9%)

Upland Life Exotic Seasonal SAISON

4/6 Pack Cans Item # 04010  $33.00 (only 10 avail.)

The style of Belgian Saison has become synonymous with complexity and sophistication. It is a style that can wear many hats, is adaptable to compliment virtually any dish, and can be used to reflect the essence of any season. In the search for a beer that is best suited for summer, the obvious emphasis should be on refreshment and few ingredients are more undeniably refreshing than citrus fruit. This led us to the inevitable citrus Saison. The combination of tangerine and lemon zest add a bright, thirst-quenching complexity to a lower gravity example of a classic Belgian Saison.  (5.2%)

Upland Campside PALE ALE

4/6 Pack Cans Item # 04008  $33.00 (only 20 avail.)

Campside has developed a loyal following with its showcase of the most interesting and effervescent American hops. Beginning in 2018, Campside will transition from a Session IPA to an American Pale Ale and will be available year round. All of the fragrant citrus and tropical character of late additions of Cascade, Simcoe, and Mosaic hops will remain, supported by a moderate malt backbone and defined by balanced drinkability. Late additions of hops allow the distinct fragrance of grapefruit, apricot and pine to be preserved as much as possible in the finished beer. With a crisp, but subtle bitterness, a balanced malt character, and a 5.4% ABV, this is the perfect year round beverage for those who think flavor is just as important as refreshment.  (5.4%)

Champagne Velvet PILSENER

6/4 Pack 16 oz Cans Item # 04002  $43.00  (only 16 avail.)

In 1902, Walter Braun, the son of German immigrants, created a recipe for a new pilsener beer named Champagne Velvet. Over the next 50 years it grew to become one of Indiana’s most popular beers, a go-to for many of our grandparents and great-grandparents. It was “The Beer with the Million Dollar Flavor,” which wasn’t just marketing fluff; it was actually insured with a $1 million policy. 
Industrial consolidation took down this regional favorite and the recipe went missing for many years until a fan rescued the hand-written recipe from deep in a trademark portfolio. Upland reformulated the recipe using that scrap of paper and proudly brings this Midwestern legend back to life. Champagne Velvet has a refreshingly light pilsener body with some sweet complexities given off by the corn malt used in this recipe, making this the perfect lager. It’s smooth and light, but still full of flavor, the perfect everyday beer for craft beer drinkers and a step up for domestic drinkers. (5.5%)

Upland Pearpawsterous: A new collaboration beer with Cascade Brewing

12/500ml Item # 04011  $120.00 (only 9 avail.)

Pearpawsterous represents a blending of our two programs featuring local fruits from both Indiana and Oregon and their individual house cultures.

“We are very excited to share our collaboration with Cascade with beer drinkers across the country. Pearpawsterous is everything you would expect from two of America’s most experienced wood-aged sour programs. You won’t be disappointed,” said Dusty Howe, Upland’s Director of National Sales.

Over the years, we’ve admired many of the beers coming from our friends at Cascade in Portland, Oregon. After visiting and sharing beers together we determined that we had very similar philosophies on sour beer making as well as similar histories with how our programs started. Naturally, we thought it would be awesome to make a beer together. Both programs are very focused on use of whole fruits, and balanced acidity. With similar wheat base beers, we aged our beers on whole paw paws from Indiana and a custom pear blend from Oregon.

Malt bill includes 30% Unmalted Wheat, which undergoes starch conversion by boiling during a “turbid mash”. The beer is then aged for long periods in oak barrels. During fermentation, yeast, Brettanomyces, and other souring microorganisms create a tart, dry and refreshing sour ale. Selected foudre beer was transferred and aged on a blend of Indiana paw paws and Oregon pears.

Pearpawsterous is straw to pale in color with the perfect balance of pawpaw and pear fruit flavors. With a zesty carbonation, it finishes tart and dry. This limited brew is now available across Upland’s distribution areas in 500 ml bottles.

Food pairing suggestion: Poached apple arugula salad with goat cheese, walnut crusted salmon risotto, rainbow trout, fresh cheeses.


Grimm Magnetic Tape

1/6 Bbls Item # 43620  $130.00

Upland Cherry Sour BARREL-AGED FRUITED SOUR ALE

1/6 Bbls Item # 03998  $255.00 (only 3 avail.)

When we started experimenting with Belgian-style sour ales back in 2006, we immediately knew we wanted to add cherries to our program. We get over 4,500 lbs of red, tart Montmorency cherries each year from King Orchards in northern Michigan. We add the cherries to the mildly tart sour ale base and let it ferment for three more months before kegging and bottling, giving this barrel-aged fruited sour ale the distinct cherry characteristics. The beer pours with rich hues of red and pink foam, with zesty effervescence. Tart cherries dominate the aroma, with hints of wine and cider, and the finish is dry, with lingering cherry fruitiness.

LE SEUL 6.5% [le sool] – French for “The Only”. Back in early 2015, we originally planned on making only one batch of each of these beers as a way of being creative by blending some of our existing finished non-sour beer together and adding a sour culture to the mix before adding fruit. The only one that still gets some other beer blended into the base is Le Seul I. Because of the popularity of the series we remake each variety as they sell through.

Dogfish Head Seasonal Festina Peche is in!

6/4 Packs Item # 32043  $36.50

1/6 Bbls Item #  32044  $82.50

½ Bbls Item #  32045  $165.00

A refreshing neo-Berliner Weisse, Festina Peche is available in 4-packs and on draft during the sweaty months.

Sadly, there are only a few breweries left in Berlin still brewing the Berliner Weisse style, which is characterized by its intense tartness (some say sour). There were once over 70 breweries in Berlin alone making this beer!

In addition to fermentation with an ale yeast, Berliner Weisse is traditionally fermented with lactic cultures to produce its acidic (or green apple-like) character. Served as an apertif or summertime quencher, Festina is delicately hopped and has a pale straw color. To soften the intense sourness, Berliner Weisse is traditionally served with a dash of essence of woodruff or raspberry syrup.  In Festina Peche, since the natural peach sugars are eaten by the yeast, the fruit complexity is woven into both the aroma and the taste of the beer so there is no need to doctor it with woodruff or raspberry syrup. Just open and enjoy!  (4.5%)  UPC:  6 38489 00199 9

 

Dogfish Head Mixed Media!

4/6 Packs Item # 32036  $46.50  ($2 off 5, $3 off 10, $4 off 15 cases)

The closest an ale can legally be to wine! With 51% of the fermentable sugars coming from grain and 49% coming from grapes, Mixed Media is a complex saison-esque ale brewed with a distinct Belgian yeast strain. Using a late-harvest Viognier grape must from our friends at Alexandria Nicole Cellars in Washington, you’ll find notes of white grape and melon in the aroma, and greeted with a spicy white wine body in every sip.

If you were (or still are) a fan of our Noble Rot or Oak-aged Noble Rot, you’ll be delighted with the addition of Mixed Media to our lineup of beer-wine hybrids.  “We’ve been experimenting with grape juice and must in the brewing process with beers like Midas Touch, Red & White, Noble Rot and Sixty One, since we first opened 23 years ago as the smallest American craft brewery,” says Dogfish Head founder & CEO Sam Calagione. “By blending the two seemingly opposite worlds of beer and wine together we’ve discovered that they collide quite nicely, and the combination of the two adds an additional thread of flavor and a layer of complexity to the mix.“  As our newest spin in the beer-wine world, Mixed Media appeals to both the Pinot Gris and beer drinker alike with a crisp, dry and tart ale that will leave you ‘puckering' for more.  (7.5%)   UPC:  6 38489 00329 0

New Year Round Brew from Long Trail:  VT IPA!

4/6 Packs Item # 48134  $29.70

Introducing our take on the hazy, hoppy style coming from the Green Mountains. 

Our brewers have been developing this recipe for the past year; playing around with yeast strains and hop combinations in search of a smooth, juicy offering that pleases palates. With VT IPA they found the perfect balance of tropical fruit and citrus flavors through a heavy dry-hopping of Citra and Amarillo hops, which give distinct tangerine, mango, pineapple and grapefruit character. 

The juicy hop profile is complemented by the grist, which features a heavy hand of flaked oats and aromatic Munich malt to deliver a smooth mouthfeel and hazy appearance. What sets this beer apart –aside from the soft bitterness– is the introduction of a new yeast strain that provides the beer with more neutral notes and juicy esters that enhance the hops.  (6%)

Our unique process involving pelletized, powdered, leaf and liquefied hops makes for a blissfully inefficient IPA that’s truthfully hoppy without being deceptively bitter. You’ll find the perfect match of citrusy and tropical notes, making for a zesty finish … honest.  (6.8%)
