What a whirlwind winter it has been. We have been so busy that we’ve been going through beer like crazy, thanks in part to a great ski season at Mount Sima. It has been great to see the Tasting Room a buzz with people, especially families taking advantage of our now kid-friendly seating areas. Also with spring here and summer just around the corner it’s finally patio season, and our 16-seat patio was approved just in time! You can now enjoy the warmer weather from outside with a fresh pint of Winterlong brew.
Patio season is here!
Be warned though we are currently down to 4 taps out of 12 at the Tasting Room and we have not been able to send any bombers outside of the brewery. Our recent brewery upgrade and expansion has not translated to more beer yet, but within a few more weeks we should have our beer selection up at the Tasting Room.
Matt and Alex brew the first batch of beer on our new 7 BBL brewhouse.
Our first 7 bbl batch on the new brewing system was our Sullen Riot Rye Pale Ale, which should be ready this Friday! We also recently brewed a big, hazy, double New England IPA (NE IPA), a bigger version of the popular HazySexyCool NE IPA that was out earlier this year. This juicy monster should be out in time for our 2nd anniversary celebration (May 20th) and we’re also taking a keg to the Haines Beer Festival. The highly anticipated Spruce Tip Pale Ale should be ready in mid-June and we’ve got a few new beer recipes we’re going to be trying this summer as well, including our first kettle soured beer.
Once the taps are all full, we will also be opening seven days a week for the summer with extended hours (see below), and there are several events coming up at the brewery that you won't want to miss!
