New Beer Friday 8/30/13

Beer wise, we're in a transion phase as far as beer goes. We're at the end end of the summer offerings and at the begining of the Autumn seasonals. Today on New Beer Friday we have some great examples of summer and fall beers, both local and national.

Sierra Nevada - Flipside Red IPA: This brand new offering from Sierra Nevada prominently features tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors from the use of whole-cone Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial hops. These hops are used both as finishing additions and in the Hop Torpedo, a proprietary Sierra Nevada device that captures more hop aroma and flavor, but not bitterness, during the fermentation process. The interplay of pale, caramel, and chocolate malts firmly roots Flipside Red IPA and supplies its rich color. With just the right gusto—6.2 percent ABV and 60 IBU—this seasonal beer is perfect for the final flash of summer. @Liquor Stores

Boulevard - Reverb Imperial Pilsner: Pours a clear sunny color, with a bright white finger of head. Aroma was biscuits and pilsner malt, crackers, grassy hop notes. Tastes of crackers, and biscuits, sweet malts, grassy hops and a fruity yeast note. Body has a creaminess to it, medium body, adequate carbonation, not too airy, not to slick. @Bayou - Select Liquor Stores

 Avenues Proper & Restaurant & Publik House - Fever Pitch Summer Saison: This session-strength version of a traditional country beer from Belgium/France is brewed with rice and wheat malt in the mash for a very light crisp body.  Nelson Sauvin (NZ) and Hallertauer (German) hops in the boil as well as a dryhopping period with the Nelson Sauvin give the beer a balanced bitterness and a fruity, wine-like finish. A light straw color and hazy from the wheat and the dryhopping period, the beer is also brewed with Grains of Paradise in the boil which have a bright, peppery flavor accented by the dry, slightly funky saison yeast. @Avenues Proper

Hoppers - Helles Festbier: a Munich style helles lager made with German pale and Munich malts. Spalter Select and Saaz hops. Secret Agent and Brewmaster Donovan Steele is also offering this beer unfiltered in a cask conditioned firkin tonight only. the tapping is at Hoppers - 4pm. One beer - two ways - one night.

We try and get you today's Firkin offering in the comment section as soon as the info comes in.

Also, Congrats go out to Tiffany Steele, she is this week's AHA Homebrewer of the Week. She's brilliant!


Cheers!

Squatters' Snowbird Dunkelweizen

Last year Alta Ski Resort celebrated their 75th birthday. To help honor their three quarters of a century in the Ski Business the Utah Brewers Cooperative created a new beer for the occasion, Alta 75th Anniversary Ale. The beer will be sticking around even though the anniversary has past.

Now comes word that Squatters has come up with a new beer for Alta's Little Cottonwood Canyon cousin Snowbird Resort. This 4.0% Dunkleweizen doesn't appear to celebrate a milestone at Snowbird as far as I know, it just appears to be a new brand for Squatters and something that Snowbird can sell to tourist and visitors.

This is likely for sale very soon. Hell, it may already be filling mugs at Snowbird's Oktoberfest. Has anyone seen it yet? 

I love Dunkles, but what are your thoughts on this new offering?

Prost!

Lagunitas High West-ified Cappuccino Stout

The beer pictured above has a lot of people, "freaking the fuck out". It appears that Lagunitas Brewing got their hands on some of our locally made, High West Whiskey barrels and aged some of their Cappuccino Stout in them.

People have been asking me all weekend (if and where) it will be available in the state. I'd have to say, no it will not be for sale in Utah. It's likely High West's place in Park City will get a few bottles for sale or for the enjoyment of the distillers, but by the looks of the label, it's a "Ridiculously Limited Bottling" and that generally means, "not a chance in Hell - Utah"!

If anyone does happen to see some of this floating around, a little nudge in the proper direction would be helpful. Lagunitas has become one of the more popular breweries to enter the market in recent years, hopfully we will see more local collaborations with them.

Cheers!

New Beer Friday 8/23/13

Just two new beers this week. One nice thing about them.... if your downtown, you'll only have to walk about a block to try them both.

Squatters Red Ryder: (Not to be confused with Tenaya Creek's beer Red Ryder) Starts with dry floral hops with hints of toffee and caramel. The rye adds a nice spiciness to the finish. @ Squatters locations

RedRock Origin: The flavor is a rich unique combo of berries, lime, lime and orange, on a saison-esque base beer. Very smooth and drinkable. @ RedRock Locations

Cheers!

New RedRock/New Belgium Collaboration

It seems like we're fresh off the heels of the Paardebloem release and we're already talking about the next new RedRock/New Belgium project. Just like Paardebloem this new collaboration will be a style bending beer that will be hard to categorize.

Dubbed Nora's Ale, the beer will barrow from German influences as well as Belgian. I have no idea what the finished product will produce, but be certain it will be different and different it always good.

We'll keep you up to date on it's status.

Cheers!

Squeaky Bike Coming Soon

Moab Brewing continues their canned assault in the grocery store isles with the coming release of their Squeaky Bike Nut Brown Ale. A long time staple in Moab, this malty, toasty, nutty American brown will be a welcome addition to the local fall lineup.

It has a nose of rich toffee with a touch of roastiness. The flavors starts with hints of chocolate and a toffee that carry through to a piney hops bitterness in the end. Very well balanced. Light bodied, with a clean, crisp finish. The aftertaste is rich, sweet, and roasted. Very good beer and very sessionable.

It should start popping up where other Moab labels are available in the next couple of months.

Cheers!

New Beer Friday 8/16/13

Hurricane Malt Liquor: I don't spend a ton of time over at the malt liquor section of the cold case, but this caught my eye and it's new to me. So, I'm taking one for the team.

Pours a very clear darkish gold color, some head in the bottle. This was, as malt liquors go, not bad. It was sweet and adjuncty, but not over the top, and alcohol was not kicking you in the throat the whole time. Mouthfeel is neutral. Very cheap, not a good experience, but not terrible. I need a hug.

Schöffhofer Grapefruit: Pours an attractive hazy whitish yellow color. The nose is pure "grapefruit soda". The taste is a nice mix of grapefruit with a pale malt backbone. The flavor is much more grapefruit juice than beer, but has a nice tartness to the finish that makes it far more refreshing than any cooler on the market. And the 2.5% ABV is absolutely perfect for hot weather activities

I hesitate to call this a true "beer", it may blur the line between a fruit beer and malternative beverage. I think its's probably closer to a shandy. Either way, it's quite drinkable. I found it at Harmon's.

Haas needs hop help again! Chris Haas head brewer at Desert Edge Brewing needs help gathering wild hops for his Radius ale. The date is Wednesday, August 21. They will start at 8 a.m. and go into the evening. Info is here.  

Prost!

Two Oktoberfests - One Weekend - No Waiting


The Utah Beer Festival isn't the only option for the intermountain beer geek this weekend, a much older tradition also begins this weekend, Snowbird's Oktoberfest. I've been writing about the Bird's Oktoberfest for years, not much has changed, except for the beer. Every year the beer options get better and better.

So choose a day over the next dozen or so weekends get your ass up Little Cottonwood Canyon to enjoy one of the most picturesque festivals in the west. Oktoberfest is every Saturday and Sunday from noon to six.

Remember to bring your mug from previous years, they'll still fill 'em!

Also today, the Bohemian Brewery is releasing their seasonal Oktoberfest beer at the pub in Midvale. Get in on a Brewery tour and Bohemian Mug w/fill for $10 at 6:30pm. This beer will be poured at Oktoberfest as well.

Prost!

New Beer Friday 8/9/13

Zion Apricot Ale: Tastes like a standard hefe but with major focus on apricot rather than citrus. You get wheat, apricot, and spice. The apricot flavoring is moderate. Aftertaste is mellow with wheat. @Zion Canyon Brewing


Wychwood Brewery Hobgoblin:
There’s a nice side taste of tingly rich fruits. The after taste is slightly bitter, with a sweet caramely/bready linger.

Wychwood Brewery Scarecrow Organic: The nose is malty with a little sweetness and some bready notes. The taste is a bit malty sweet with a slight herbal hoppiness. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied.
  
Many have asked me to include meads, ciders and fruit wines to New Beer Friday. Cool! 

The Hive Winery Plum Wine: A bright, clean wine with a soft medium sweet finish. This wine has a subtle floral nose with a slight earthiness in the back notes. The slightly acidic finish on the wine accents the pleasing fresh plum flavor.

Today's Firkin Friday offering at the Bayou is Desert Edge's Rye aged in Chardonnay Oak. Tapping at 3:00.

Cheers!

New Squatters Cans


If you go back a few years you may recall seeing Squatters Chasing Tail & Provo Girl in cans. They weren't around too long, they may have been ahead of the game or they may have been stuck with the old "can stigma". For whatever reason they're gone, but the Utah Brewers Cooperative will soon be breathing new life into the Squatters/Wasatch can program with the debut of the brewery's new canning line.

Look for two new canned brands to hit shelves sometime in the next few months Full Suspension Pale Ale & Hop Rising. I believe this is the first canning line at the UBC, the previous canning program was packaged out of state.

Uinta, Bohemian and Moab has all seen great success with their canning lines, what other Squatters/Wasatch brands would you like to see in cans? 

Cheers!
