Draft Beer Update

Dock Street Summer in Berlin replaced River Horse Summer Blonde. Man that River Horse Summer Blonde sure was a nice, nice little beer. Well we've got a nice, nice little beer to replace it. Summer in Berlin is a Berliner weiss with lemongrass and ginger. Berliner weisses are tart wheat beers. Should be very refreshing now that summer is sort of here.

Abita Select Imperator (quarter) replaced itself. This is a black IPA.

On our wheat beer line, Troegs Dream Weaver Wheat replaced  Ramstein Double Platinum Blonde. Dream Weaver is a great Bavarian style hefeweizen. Of course we expect nothing less than great from Troegs.

Chris from Penn Brewery will be quizmastering Quizzo tonight. If all goes as planned Port Mongo IPA will kick before 8pm and Penn Brick Garden IPA will be tap for Quizzo.

Draft Beer Update

On our lager line, Pizza Boy Citra Pils replaced High Noon Lewis & Clark Lager. This is a rare one. Pizza Boy doesn't make a lot of beer and most of it gets served in their brewpub, which is called Al's of Hampden. Yeah I don't know. What I do know is that their brewer is now Terry Hawbaker, who did great things at Bullfrog before he was lured into the Farmers Cabinet black hole. Happily Terry is back in the orbit of Central PA and happily we have this 4% lager, which would seem to imply it is single hopped with Citra. When (if?) I get done work, I will be treating myself to one of those ASAP.

Draft Beer Update:

Sixpoint Mad Scientists Series #20: Kelpie replaced Weyerbacher Nineteen. Hundreds of years ago, Scottish coastal farmers sowed their fields with abundant seaweed as a fertilizer. The briny seaweed imbued a unique flavor in their grain which the locals came to expect and enjoy in their beers and whiskeys. So this is a deep, dark porter with seaweed added in.

Allagash Saison replaced Dock Street Crackle and Squeeze. Allagash's  interpretation of a classic Belgian farmhouse style.

Draft Beer Update:

Tommyknocker Pick Axe IPA replaced Lagunitas IPA. An IPA from Colorado.

Abita Select Imperator replaced Elysian Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale. A tasty black IPA.

Ramstein Double Platinum Blonde replaced Weyerbacher White Sun Wit. A higher than normal ABV for a wheat beer.

Weyerbacher Nineteen replaced Lost Abbey Gift of the Magi. Brewed to the classic “Weyerbacher anniversary requirement” of a strength of 10% ABV or more, Nineteen fits the mold and brings a new dimension to the anniversary pedigree: tartness! Two brews were made: a high-ABV mango-infused wheat beer and a tart blending beer, both using pale and wheat malts and a blend of Belgian yeasts. The final blended beer features both tropical sweetness, as well as the tart citrusy character of a spontaneously fermented beer.

River Horse Summer Blonde replaced Sam Adams Summer Ale. A simple golden ale for summertime drinking.

Philadelphia Fleur de Lehigh replaced Central Waters Hop Rise Session Ale. This summer seasonal is an unfiltered golden ale brewed with chamomile, rhubarb, ginger, rose hips, and lemon grass; then fermented with their Belgian yeast strain.

A sixtel of Shawnee Session Porter replaced itself on the Beer Engine.

Flying Fish Exit 1 Bayshore Oyster Stout replaced Rogue Fifteen Thousand Brew Ale. An "export style" stout brewed with oysters. The creamy chocolate flavor harmonizes with the minerals from the oyster shells (there’s no actual "oyster" taste). An Irish ale yeast contributes a bit of fruitiness and a dry crispness.

Draft Beer Update:

Lost Abbey Gift of the Magi replaced Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Extra. A belgian Strong Ale that we had for Xmas in July but had some problems pouring. All fixed now and pouring great for your enjoyment.

High Noon Lewis & Clark Lager replaced Lagunitas New DogTown Pale Ale. A lager from Michael Vicks previous residence, Leavenworth, KS.

Rogue Fifteen Thousand Brew Ale replaced Free Will 10W Porter. A Belgian Stout that Rogue Ales brewmaster, John Maier, has completed for his 15,000 brew.

Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA replaced Old Forge Overbite IPA. A well balanced, west coast IPA that is dry hopped 3 separate times, each lot giving it more and more of the grapefruit citrus hop aroma and flavor it is known for. Overall it utilizes over 4 pounds of pacific northwest hops per barrel. We haven't had this great IPA in for a long, long time. Why? I do not know, ask Scoats.

Sam Adams Summer Ale replaced Dogfish Head Firefly Ale. This summer seasonal uses malted wheat, lemon zest and Grains of Paradise, a rare pepper from Africa first used as a brewing spice in the 13th century, to create a crisp taste, spicy flavor and medium body.

Voodoo Wynona's Big Brown Ale replaced Neshaminy Creek Tribute Tripel. A hopped up brown ale.

Picture of the Day

Today's picture is from last Friday's Lagunitas Dog Days of Summer when we invited people to bring their dogs with them. Many folks did.


Draft Beer Update 

On our IPA line, Old Forge Overbite IPA replaced Lagunitas IPA. Overbite is a west coast style IPA from our friends up in Danville PA.

On our cider line, Woodchuck Belgian White Cider replaced Commonwealth Gregarious Ginger Cider. This is a neat one; it's a cider in the style a Belgian wheat beer. If you have a wheat condition, this could be as close as you can safely get to drinking a Belgian White.
