To Boldly Brew Where No Brew Has Gone Before
Since it has been too long since I’ve disrupted your life and “made” you buy good beer, it’s now time to turn up the heat and really get you all shook up. We have four beers to tell you about and some changes on how we announce our releases.
On tap, right now, at the pub and brewery for pints, pitchers, and growler fills, are “Bad Boy,” “Odin’s Raven” and “O’Brien’s IPA.” All are fresh and really good, since we brewed them for the upcoming “World Beer Cup.” If you are new to our lineup, here are just the facts, ma’am. “Bad Boy” is our other double IPA weighing in at 9.25% abv and it uses hops that weren’t around when our original double IPA, “Pure Hoppiness,” came out. “Odin’s Raven” is an Imperial Chocolate Stout that’s 10% abv and chalked full of roasty, chocolatey goodness as we use real Hershey’s Chocolate in abundance in this fine brew. “O’Brien’s IPA” is our Gold Medal winning Strong Pale Ale in the World Beer Cup beer that’s sure to put a smile on the face of any hophead. “O’Brien’s IPA” is 6.2% abv dryhopped-like-an-IPA pale ale that’s balanced with a sweet malt backbone.
On Wednesday, February 29th, bottles of “Chez Monieux” will go on sale. Limits on bottles will be enforced to a maximum of 4 bottles per person per day. If we suspect you are a retailer buying for resale, you will be denied sale, period. Since I don’t get out much, going to Belgium and concentrating of “Belgian Kreik” as a style to perfect was a big deal. I put my entire brewing prowess to work on making this edition one for the ages. We used very tart Balaton Cherries to infuse this sour, tart elixir into a beer we’re very proud of. Chez Monieux” is 7% abv and comes in a 750 ml Belgian style bottle for $23.95 plus tax and crv.
You have seen your very last growler of “Exponential Hoppiness” ever to be dispensed. http://www.ebay.com/csc/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=exponential+hoppiness&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc
Since I previously stated if I ever saw a growler of “Exponential Hoppiness” for sale on ebay there would never be another growler sold again. Don’t blame me, but you can see who to blame on the above link. As for bottles of “Expo” on ebay, I’m seriously considering never bottling it again. This is not just a personal issue, it’s illegal. The fact that people drove down from LA to make a quick buck and denying the locals the chance to buy some is also just plain wrong.
So, you can see the timing of the releases listed above. The first two beers were released last week, the next comes out today and the last one comes out tomorrow. That is the most advanced notice you ever receive. Our little operation is focused on supplying the local market with fine beer. If you live in the area you can now get first crack at our releases before they can drive in from points unknown. That’s the best I can do for you, my loyal locals.
