Without Much Ado but a Whole Lot of Poo
Greetings from everyone’s favorite microbrewery in Alpine! We have some pretty special brew releases to announce and some general update information to share with you. The infamous FedEx has done it again; wait ‘til you hear what they did this time. We will be making some interesting “Anniversary Beers” for some interesting establishments coming up. All that and a sawbuck might get you a small double cinnamon dolce latte.
The release of “Crazy Hazel” was just last week. This delicious elixir is made with hazelnut meal, Belgian candy sugar and plenty of caramel malts. Amber in color and 6.2% abv makes for a tasty treat of a beer. Though not bottled, we offer growler fills and on draught in the pub.
And, the cooler temperatures means the heavy beers are more appropriate for this time of year. So, we have “Odin’s Raven” available for your immediate consumption. This beer won a bronze medal at the 2012 “World Beer Cup” in the Chocolate Beer category. We do not currently bottle this beer but do offer growler fills in the brewery and on draught in the pub. Yes, it’s dark, strong at 11% abv, and yummy. Odin’s Raven float anyone?
Today is the release of the world’s most celebrated beer “Hoppy Birthday.” Available for growler fills and on draught in the pub. This is technically a Pale Ale, but we make it like an IPA, with lots of hoppy goodness from hops like Citra and Nelson. 5.25% abv
One last release to tell you about. We made a beer for a San Francisco landmark call The Toronado Pub to commemorate their 25th Anniversary. We called it “Toronado 25th Anniversary IPA” but found another brewery, Russian River, made a beer and called it that as well. So, we now call what some were calling “Double Nelson” “Keene Idea.” Dave Keene is the owner of The Toronado Pub in San Francisco. We will be releasing this special 9% abv Double IPA sometime late next week. A very limited amount of kegs will be made available for growler fills in the brewery, no bottles, and on draught in the pub. Some will make its way to San Francisco as well.
