Summer's Short

Summer's Short

There’s no denying it, summer is transitioning into fall, even though this so-called summer never really came.  This is the time of year when we start to notice the colours changing, the mornings becoming cooler, the fireweed is going to seed, and the kids are going back to school (for the most part). Thankfully to help with this transition, we’ve got some exciting beer releases and expansions in the works.


Upcoming Beer Releases


The last batch of our Spruce Tip Pale Ale is scheduled to be released next Monday, August 24th.   If it is like either of our other spruce release dates this year, it won’t last long.  Pre-orders will be available online starting Sunday, August 23rd at 8 pm. Head to our online store here.  If you miss out on the pre-orders, get here early on Monday, because when she is gone, she gone!



Our annual limited release, Belgian-style Tripel, is being transferred from bourbon barrels this week and packaged next week (likely Wednesday, August 26).  This year's batch was aged in Basil Hayden’s Kentucky Bourbon barrels for 6 months.  It will also be the first time we are canning the beer, so it will be available in single cans, like with our other limited release brews.  As always, this beer is big and boozy, but oh so smooth.


First time this divine beer will be in cans.



We’ll have two back to back hazy releases in early September, with the return of both Haze Junction Hazy Pale Ale and Truckstop Poetry Hazy IPA. 



We’ve got two expansions in the works.  Not only do we have a few bigger tanks arriving in the next couple weeks, we are also working on an expansion of our interior Tasting Room space.  While the outdoor beer garden has been a life saver during these COVID times, it is definitely not an all-season option.  With the pandemic still part of our lives for the foreseeable future, we need more space to spread out inside. So we'll be taking down some walls!   With the brewery expansion we've got three triple tanks coming, meaning we have to brew three times to fill them. We're hoping this means we can keep up with our regular offerings and finally get back to brewing some more specialty brews, like our Jagged Pils and Secret Destroyer Fruit Sour.


We're growing UP!  Three new triple fermenters are coming soon.
