New beers on tap, LAST CALLS, and new draft and bottles ahead.


NEW BEERS ON TAP NOW:

We released a couple of new beers at the Brewery lately, and with little fanfare. Mostly because we were all fanfared out with our Brewpub Grand Opening.  So here's a little rundown on them, as well as some new ones on the horizon:

  • Boire Avec Moi - This is a Belgian Table Beer.  The loose translation to local dialect would be something like "Hey Yinz, Drink with me!"  Traditionally, this style was a beer of very low abv (1-2% alcohol by volume) brewed to be enjoyed at the dinner table by adults and children alike. But we brewed this at 4.2% (Imperial Table Beer???), and it's just for Grown Ups. Nordy brewed this beer.
  • Black Hop - This is a "cascadian dark ale", since black ipa is a bit of an oxymoron. It's a different recipe than last time we brewed it, when it was our BigPourBrew.  Hop supply being the main contributor to the change, as well as our desire to tinker and improve whenever we can. 6.0% abv. Brendan brewed this beer.

Ingredients and other info for these beers and lots of others can be found on our mobile tap list site, which we update every week: m.eastendbrewing.com You can add it to your smartphone by just clicking on that link and adding a shortcut. (It's really just a website, not an app that eats up any space.)

LAST CALL FOR THESE BEERS:

Over the next couple of weeks, we expect to see the following beers run out:

  • BigHop HARVEST Ale (Our wet-hopped BigHop)
  • Brett Hop (100% Brettanomyces fermented BigHop, coming back in big bottles in 2015!)
  • Along Came a Cider (returning in a couple weeks as the new batch finishes up)
  • ElderberRye Ale (Rye beer with fresh elderberries added post-fermentation)

NEW BEERS COMING ON DRAFT IN THE WEEKS AHEAD:

  • Steelcut Oatmeal Stout
  • The Bitter End
  • Sketchy (Illustration Ale aged in wine barrels on brett)
  • Old Nebby Stock Ale

NEW BEERS COMING IN BOTTLES IN EARLY 2015:

We're going to try and roll all of these into one or two bottle release days here, so there will be a chance to get some of each.  But ultimately, we're at the mercy of the beers and their readiness, trying to coordinate this.
