American Sour Ale : Multiple Personalities in a bottle

American Sour Ale : Multiple Personalities in a bottle

When you order an American Sour Ale, you cannot assume what it will be like unless you ask your taproom specialist ahead of time. This is due to the absolutely varying nature of this brewing style. With a color that ranges from pale to black, bitterness that spans the same line and an ABV that can only be determined by asking the taproom staff (again), you are sure to find an adventure in each new American Sour you choose to try. Why is the American Sour so unpredictable? Simply put, there is no set determination at to what these brews […]

Barrel Aging : Should we be doing it?

Barrel Aging : Should we be doing it?

If you’ve ever tried a delicious barrel-aged brew, you’re likely wondering why we would even ask this question. In fact, we’re kind of wondering as well. After all, without the delicious brews like Backwoods Bastard, we’d have one less brewing style to enjoy! However, there are those folks that feel barrel-aged beer is “unsafe”. The craft brewing industry has standards, my friends. Those standards are in place to ensure that we are not serving up dangerous liquids to our patrons and we’re quite happy to have them in place! However, this is not the main reason we find the idea […]

Craft brewing: No clowning around

Craft brewing: No clowning around

When we think of craft brewing, we often picture huge fermentation tanks and a bunch of guys hanging out and trying out different types of beer.  While this image is not exactly wrong (c’mon brewmasters, it’s happened, we know it), it’s not entirely on target either.  There is a large amount of work that goes into craft brewing, from sourcing the ingredients to determining energy sources, and further on to deciding what the taproom is going to look like.  The process is not simple, but some days it really can be a bunch of guys sitting around testing the new […]

New craft breweries are bringing fruit to their brews and people love it!

New craft breweries are bringing fruit to their brews and people love it!

With new craft breweries and even some older breweries, bringing about a trend of fruity brews, we wonder where this could go next.  While adding fruit flavors to brews is not truly a “new” idea, it does seem to have quite a following in recent years.  And while there are many who will say “No, this is a new concept!”, we beg to differ.  Fruit infused craft brews have actually been around for centuries with flavors such as orange and lemon creeping up quite often, not to mention the range of wine inspired brews that have come and gone over time.
