Harpoon releases 54th 100 Barrel Series beer: Nordic Saison

Nordic-Saison-glass-jpgHolding Brewing Permit #001 in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is something of a big deal. It means that Harpoon Brewing Company was the first brewery in Boston. In the early day, the brewery, owned by three friends — Dan Kenary, Rich Doyle, and George Ligeti — was founded in 1986 after Kenary and Doyle returned from a trip to Europe where they fell in love with the fresh, local beers found there.

Over the years, the brewery introduced new beers and lines. In 1993, Harpoon IPA, now a favorite among many beer-lovers, was launched as a summer seasonal. The beer was so popular that it brought the company out of the red and in to the black financially for the first time since its founding. More new offerings followed with the UFO line, launched in 1998 with the breweries first unfiltered brews. UFO, a German-style Hefeweizen, was a new style for New Englanders who immediately took to the cloudy, refreshing beer with its notes of lemon and garnish. Harpoon quickly became known as a brewery with its finger planted firmly on the pulse of the burgeoning craft beer revolution.

To further highlight the talents of the brewery’s brewers, the 100 Barrel Series was introduced in 2003. Originally this program was intended to spotlight the creativity of a single brewer from inception to production. Brewers were challenged to use their imagination to create experimental styles or new twists on established styles. When the recipe is finalized a small batch of the brew is produced and offered as a special release to thirsty beer-drinkers everywhere.

Th newest edition to the 100 Barrel Series is Nordic Saison, brewed collaboratively with Anders Kissmeyer of Kissmeyer Beer & Brewing, Will Meyers of Cambridge Brewing Company, and Jaime Schier of Harpoon Brewery. The brew is a study of fresh floral aromas and a tart, dry finish.

Learn more about 100 Barrel Series: Nordic Saison in the official press release below.

THE HARPOON BREWERY RELEASES 100 BARREL SERIES NORDIC SAISON
An Experimental Collaboration that Celebrates Local ingredients and Brewing Individuality

Boston, MA (July 1, 2015) – Harpoon is proud to introduce the 54th installment of the Harpoon 100 Barrel Series: Nordic Saison. Anders Kissmeyer of Kissmeyer Beer & Brewing, Will Meyers of Cambridge Brewing Company, and Jaime Schier of Harpoon Brewery created this effervescent golden Saison using local honey and cranberries, rosehips, yarrow, and heather flowers.

Harpoon’s Jaime Schier first met and enjoyed beers with Anders Kissmeyer, a pioneer of the Danish craft beer movement, on one of Harpoon’s annual beer culture trips to Denmark back in 2005. So when Anders asked him to join his Saison experiment—brewing the same recipe at select craft breweries around the world— Jaime jumped at the chance. Together with longtime friend Will Meyers from across the Charles River at Cambridge Brewing Company, the three fashioned this Saison with a distinctly floral, herbal character, refreshing tartness, and sublimely dry finish.

Harpoon Nordic Saison is part of Anders’ collaborative experiment that celebrates local ingredients and showcases the individual “stamp” of each craft brewer. “The Nordic Saison project is aimed at exploring the fascinating differences in the character of beers arising from the same base recipe but brewed at different breweries. Then the ’fingerprint’ of the brewery – in the form of the karma of the brewers, their equipment and methodology, and the local ingredients – can be expressed,” says Anders. “The Harpoon Nordic Saison is very accessible and drinkable, but still with a subtle depth of complexity that keeps you coming back for more.”

Harpoon Nordic Saison has a light body and a slight tartness and bitterness. The aroma is fruity and spicy with a subtle Citra hop note. The flavor is crisp, floral, and spicy from the addition of local honey and cranberries, rosehips, yarrow, and heather flowers. It finishes is crisp with a yeast spiciness, fruity complexity, and a touch of citrus.

Brewers’ pairing recommendations:
Anders:  “This beer is extremely ´food versatile´ meaning that it will go very well with almost any seafood dish imaginable, with most of the salads and sandwiches (burgers excluded, though!) I know of, traditional chicken dishes, most Thai dishes, all pale and/or vegetable based soups, most cheeses (apart from very strong or bleu cheeses…).”

Will:  “I see this beer as quite versatile and able to complement food in a variety of circumstances. Terrific with fresh chevre and soft rind cheeses, mild pickled or cured vegetables and meats, definitely seafood and grilled fowl. Not only would it pair well with a salad of fresh herbs, I would also include it as an ingredient in a vinaigrette and as a marinade.”

Jaime:  “This beer is best paired with a warm summer day out on the patio, filled with great friends and great conversation!”

Brewers’ Tasting Notes for Nordic Saison:
Appearance:  very pale golden
Aroma:  herbal notes with yeast phenols and esters
Mouth feel:  very light bodied, highly carbonated,
Taste:  tart, herbal, with balanced contribution from Yarrow, Heather flowers, dried cranberries, honey, and Rose Hips

Harpoon 100 Barrel Series Nordic Saison Beer Specs:
Style:  Saison
ABV:  6.1%
IBUs:  25
Color:  8 EBC

The Harpoon 100 Barrel Series Nordic Saison is now available in 22 oz. bottles and draft (limited availability).

Harpoon introduced the 100 Barrel Series in 2003 to showcase the individual brewing talents of its employees.  Every couple months, a different Harpooner is invited to choose a style of beer, formulate the recipe, and brew the beer.  That brewer’s signature can be found on the bottle label.  The beers in the series are one-offs; they are brewed in limited batches and are available only until the batch sells out.  Since the series began in May of 2003, 54 different styles of beer have been brewed.  For a complete list of beers that have been released as part of the 100 Barrel Series, visit www.harpoonbrewery.com.

BrewDog to open first U.S. brewery

Large_brewdog-logoLife could not be better for James Watt and Martin Dickie the outrageous co-owners of Scotland’s BrewDog Brewery. The duo has a popular program on the Esquire television network, are known for making enormously alcoholic brews (their Nuclear Tactical Penguin once held the title for beer with the highest ABV) and are insanely likeable as beer personalities. On their home turf of Europe, the gregarious Scots have opened a slew of BrewDog pubs with more on the slate to open soon. But, for Americans, the latest news may be the most exciting: yesterday BrewDog announced plans to open a brewing facility near Columbus, Ohio.

In the formal announcement, released June 30, 2015, the company detailed its plans to finance part of the expansion through crowd funding, a method that they have used in the past to great success.

“Our international expansion plans have always been ambitious, but our intentions stateside are probably up there with some of the most ambitious, bombastic, exciting ventures we’ve ever embarked upon,” said Watts of the project. “America has one of the world’s most eclectic, energetic beer scenes imaginable, and we’re psyched to be pledging allegiance to the craft beer revolution in the USA. Planet BrewDog just gained a continent.”

Read the entire press release below:

(Columbus, OH) – Scottish brewery announces details of USA expansion plans

Scottish craft brewery, BrewDog today formally announced its plans to open its North American headquarters and first production facility outside the UK in Canal Winchester, located in the Columbus Region of Ohio. The brewery was inundated with enquiries after it revealed preliminary plans for its USA expansion earlier this month, with the BrewDog Facebook page noting unprecedented shares of the story, reaching more than 150,000 people.

BrewDog’s investment in the brewing facility in Columbus will total $30.4million, including the construction of a 100,000 square foot facility in Canal Winchester, to be completed by August 2016. The site will be the main brewing site for all BrewDog USA’s beer production, as well as boasting a restaurant, taproom and visitor centre.

The launch of BrewDog USA will generate 125 jobs at the Canal Winchester site, and the brewery has announced that it is recruiting for some senior positions immediately.

Applications for the role of CEO, BrewMaster, VP of Sales and CFO are welcome by emailing usajobs@brewdog.com, and prospective Brewers, Packaging Operators and Lab & Quality Managers are invited to get in contact via the same email address.

The site in Ohio will initially serve the U.S. market with potential to export to other countries. It will produce more than 85,200 barrels in its first year of production, increasing capacity in years 2 and 3 until it reaches 852,000 barrels.

Economic development partners in the project include JobsOhio, Columbus 2020 and the City of Canal Winchester.

Columbus based, Triad Architects has been appointed to develop the design for the brewery and headquarters. Hiring for the brewery’s USA site will begin in 2016 and will include positions in production, sales and management.

The crowdfunding revolution

BrewDog has announced that it will be funding the American expansion in part using finance raised via a U.S crowdfunding round; Equity for Punks USA. Last month it launched a landing page for more information about the scheme, which it hopes to open later this year. Interested potential investors can sign up for more information via brewdog.com/equityforpunksusa

Equity for Punks has enabled the brewery to expand as quickly as it has done, and the fourth round of funding opened in Europe in April this year. In the first three weeks after launch, the brewery raised a world record-breaking £5million, a fifth of its £25million target. The amount raised broke the previous record set by BrewDog in 2013, when it raised £4.25 million (less costs) in just over six months.

With the latest round of Equity for Punks, 526,316 shares in BrewDog have been made available, for a minimum investment of £95 for two shares.

The capital raised from investors will be used to fund in particular the expansion of the BrewDog brewery and its international bar division, as well as launching new projects like a craft beer hotel, custom sour beer facility and a distillation plant.

Growler wars end in Florida, 64-ounce growlers legal beginning July 1

beertogoIn case you were wondering what that odd cheering noise was a few weeks ago, it was the collective voices of Florida craft beer lovers and producers shouting in joy that Governor Rick Scott signed the bill that made half-gallon growlers legal in the state. That’s right, until just recently, craft beer could not legally purchase craft beer growlers in sizes other than one-quart or one-gallon sizes. A fact that pegged the state as one of only two that prohibited the half-gallon growler (Utah is the other one). But, after several years of legal wrangling, mega-beer producer back-stabbing and good ol’ boy favoritism, craft beer lobbying prevailed and the containers will become legal July 1, 2015.

To commemorate the ruling and the states newly-found sensibility, breweries are staging special events and offers. One of the most interesting is the offer Ben Davis — a crusader in the growler wars and owner of Intuition Ale Works in Jacksonville, Fla. — has proposed a sort of trade-in. For each one-gallon growler turned in at the brewery’s tap room July 1–4, a shiny new half-gallon growler will be provided along with a complimentary fill of one of Intuition’s core brands. Davis is so adamant about ridding the world of Intuition gallon growlers, that he has come up with a rather interesting way to dispose of them. Check out the video below for the details.

Free the Growler! from Ben Davis on Vimeo.

Just around the corner from Intuition at Bold City Brewing Company, a special Imperial cask ale will be tapped on Thursday, July 2. And on Friday, July 3 the tap room will open at noon with tappings of  Barrel-Aged Super Secret Stout and Barrel-Aged Chinook IPA that will be available for 64-ounce growler fills. But, the tap room will be closed on Independence Day, so get your fills before then.

Out at Jacksonville Beach, patrons of Gren Room Brewing Company can celebrate the new 64-ounce growler freedom with a new beer and half-price half-gallon growler fills. The new brew is called Citrus Paradisi Pale Ale and is an American pale ale dry hopped with Amarillo hops and aged on fresh Florida grapefruit. To grab a half-gallon of this new beer just buy a new Green Room 64-ounce growler for $6 and get a fill for just $5.

Statewide, ,any tap rooms will stop at 6:40 p.m. to toast the passage of the 64-ounce growler law. Be sure to stop in to your favorite whether it be Funky Buddha in South Florida, Cigar City in Tampa, Grayton Beer Company in Santa Rosa Beach or any of the many other great breweries around the state to toast the new growler freedom.

Sierra Nevada collaborates with German brewery on Oktobefest

sierrenevadaoktoberfestKen Grossman, the mastermind behind Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is known to be fiercely loyal to his family, his brand and those who enjoy his products. As one of the pioneers in the craft beer industry, he is also keenly aware of the importance of keeping his product offerings fresh and exciting. With his newest project, Grossman brings together his family with another family-owned and family-run brewery in Germany. The project sees his company collaboratively brewing a new Oktoberfest beer with 600-year-old Brauhaus Riegle of Augsburg, Germany.

Read all the details in the official press release below:

Chico, CA— June 29, 2015—On a trip to Germany this spring, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. finalized its inaugural partner, Augsburg’s Brauhaus Riegele, for a brand new Oktoberfest beer. Released each fall starting in 2015, the collaborative seasonal will feature a different German brewery every year. The partnership blends centuries of brewing tradition with modern spirit, giving craft drinkers the ultimate Oktoberfest, a Bavarian festival beer unlike any they’ve experienced in the US.

Family owned like Sierra Nevada, Brauhaus Riegele has brewed excellent craft beers since 1386, and more than 600 years later, its innovation earns accolades including 2015 Craft Brewer of the Year at the Meininger International Craft Beer Awards. Just as Sierra Nevada’s Ken and Brian Grossman lead as a father-son team, Brauhaus Riegele has a father-son duo at the helm. Its 27th generation Master Brewer Dr. Sebastian Priller-Riegele works alongside his son Sebastian Priller-Riegele, a World Champion Beer Sommelier, to brew a lineup of beers that together have earned more than 200 awards and medals stateside and abroad. Their brewmaster, Frank Muller, has won the German Government’s “Bundesehrenpreis” award for quality seven times—every year it’s been given.

“We’re honored that Brauhaus Riegele, a real cornerstone of German craft brewing, is kicking off this Oktoberfest collaboration with us,” said Ken Grossman, Sierra Nevada’s founder. “We’re both family owned, our children are hands on, and we share a passion for great beer. We’re aligned in so many ways, and we’re excited about the outstanding beer that’s emerged.”

“For years we’ve followed the great development of Sierra Nevada and we are really impressed by Ken and Brian’s fantastic beer culture,” said Sebastian Priller-Riegele, Brauhaus Riegele’s marketing manager. “We are really looking forward to sharing this outstanding beer together that shows our passion and dedication to the art of brewing. It’s an honor to work with Sierra Nevada.”

The Sierra Nevada and Brauhaus Riegele collaboration Oktoberfest will hit retail shelves in August. It will only be distributed in North America, although Brauhaus Riegele fans in Germany need not worry. The two breweries are collaborating on a separate barrel-aged beer to be brewed and aged on site at Brauhaus Riegele’s traditional Bavarian sudhaus.

Founded in 1980, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is one of America’s premier craft breweries, highly regarded for using only the finest quality ingredients.

Summer alcohol consumption peaks near Independence Day

responsibilityIt is no secret that hot summer weather can lead a few brews to cool off. There are even terms like “lawn mower beer,” and “back porch sipper” point to the popularity of reaching for a cold one after a hot day. But, over indulging can lead to serious circumstances and, because we feel passionately about responsible drinking, it is important that we provide the below information about summer alcohol consumption.

With the Independence Day holiday coming up in a few days, we urge you to take a few moments to educate yourself on this important subject and to always enjoy your brews responsibly.

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – June 15, 2015 – Today, BACtrack®, the leader in personal and professional-grade breathalyzers, released its fourth Alcohol Consumption Report revealing the booziest days of summer. The report is based on data collected anonymously from users of BACtrack Mobile and BACtrack Vio smartphone breathalyzers. Notable insights are detailed below and the full results, including interactive data, can be viewedhere.

 “More than 10,000 people die every year in alcohol-impaired driving accidents, and the summer months are among the most dangerous times on the road,” said Keith Nothacker, president and founder of BACtrack. “By shedding light on alcohol consumption habits, we hope to enlighten the general public so they become more informed and responsible drinkers.”

 When Do Americans Drink the Most During Summer?

It’s no surprise that many Americans spend their summers floating down rivers or cruising across lakes with drinks in hand. According to BACtrack data, the summer booze cruise starts and ends on a high note, only declining slightly towards the end of July.

  • The Summer Solstice, the official start of summer, and July 4th are tied for the booziest days, with an average BAC of 0.082%
  • Over 47% of days throughout the summer months (June, July and August) have an average BAC above 0.060%, the national average throughout the entire year
  • 8 of the 13 biggest drinking days of the summer are Saturdays, with average BACs between 0.075% and 0.082%
  • Americans drink the most in June, with an average BAC of 0.066%. July and August are tied with an average BAC of 0.063%
  • There are five summer days with an average BAC above the legal limit of 0.080%: June 7, June 14, June 21, July 3, and July 4

 Americans Celebrate their Independence by Drinking

Nothing says “America” like a good drink and some red, white and blue.

  • The 4th of July is tied with the Summer Solstice as the booziest day of summer, with an average BAC of 0.082%
  • July 3rd comes in at a very close second, with an average BAC of 0.081%
  • The week leading up to the fourth of July is the booziest week of the summer, with an average BAC of 0.075%. No other week has an average BAC over 0.070%

 Most Sober Days of Summer

BACtrack found the summer days with the lowest average BACs are Mondays and Tuesdays, and that Americans drink the least at the end of July but then regain their drinking stamina throughout August.

  • Tuesday, August 5th registered the lowest average BAC of 0.034%, followed by Monday, July 21st(0.039% average BAC), Monday, June 9 and Monday Aug 4 (both 0.040% average BAC).
  • Looking at weekly BACs, the lowest average BAC was the last week of July, which registered at 0.058%
  • Americans increase consumption again the following week, at the start of August, with an average BAC of 0.061%

This is the fourth Alcohol Consumption Report BACtrack has released that provides insights into drinking habits throughout the U.S. You can also view the first report, second report, and third report.

Methodology

Data was collected anonymously from users of the BACtrack app, which syncs with both the BACtrack Vio and BACtrack Mobile smartphone breathalyzers, and represents 71,618 unique BAC tests collected over from June 1, 2014 through August 31, 2014. Data used in the report was collected from users in the U.S. with location services turned on and does not represent data from all users.

Stone releases hop bomb Ruin Ten

Stone Brewing Company is renowned 2015RuinTen_3bottle_WEBfor their penchant for hopped up brews. That is why it comes as no surprise that they have released a monster triple IPA that boasts 110 International Bittering Units (IBUs) that is sure to delight hop heads far an wide.

A derivative brew, Stone’s Ruin Ten Triple IPA owes its audacious hop-forward kick to the its predecessor Ruination. Indeed, the brew was created in 2012 for the anniversary of that famous brew. Now an annual release, Ruin Ten is sure to be sought by those who crave hopheavy brews.

Read the entire press release from Stone below:

ESCONDIDO, CA (June 29, 2015) – It’s the time of year again when the mercury in thermometers rises in tandem with the hop faithful’s thirst for piney, botanical bitterness. The close of June marks the start of Stone Ruin Ten Triple IPA season for Stone Brewing Co. An amped-up IPA building off its famous progenitor, Stone Ruination IPA, this once-a-year offering explodes with citrus and stone fruit aromas that give way to an onslaught of pungent, resinous, tropical fruit flavors. This immensely hopped IPA is available now in 22-ounce bottles and on draft at restaurants, bars and retail shelves where Stone beer is sold, nationwide.

Originally released to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Stone Ruination IPA, this splendorous, hop-heavy gem debuted in June 2012 as Stone Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA and instantly became a hit among hoppy-beer lovers. Rather than limit the beer to one-hit wonder status, the recipe was revisited and added to Stone’s lineup of annual special releases. In 2013, it came back with the name Stone RuinTen IPA, the nickname given to it by the Stone Brewing Team. This year, it’s returning as 2015 Stone RuinTen Triple IPA and, though the word “triple” has been added to the name, that’s the only difference. The recipe remains the same: full-bodied, flavorful and hoppy as all get out…just the way we (and our fans) like it!

“Stone RuinTen Triple IPA has become one of our brewing team’s favorite IPAs, so we’re always thrilled to brew it come June,” says Stone Brewmaster Mitch Steele. “Dry-hopping with five pounds of Citra and Centennial hops per barrel results in a magical blend of fruity, floral notes.”

Adds Stone CEO and Co-founder Greg Koch, “If Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0 is a ‘Liquid Poem to the Glory of the Hop,’ then Stone RuinTen Triple IPA is ‘A Stage Dive into a Mosh Pit of Hops!’”

Built to sate the appetites of the highest order of hop fanatics, Stone RuinTen Triple IPA’s elevated malt presence provides a strong, full-bodied mouthfeel to help balance its intense, lingering hop bitterness while lending a slightly caramelized accent to hop-borne tropical fruit flavors. These delicious nuances are at their prime when the beer is consumed fresh, making Stone RuinTen Triple IPA an annual offering to be hunted down and enjoyed as soon as humanly possible.

As if the beer itself weren’t enough (it is), for the first time ever, the arrival of Stone RuinTen Triple IPA brings with it a celebration of both the beer and its recently updated, year-round counterpart, Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0. This comes via Stone Ruination Nation. Hop-hungry craft beer enthusiasts will be able to soak in the lupulin love at stores, bars and restaurants across the country via a bevy of special events—some of which will include oaked and double-dry-hopped iterations of Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0—and share what are sure to be bold experiences on social media using the hashtag #RuinationNation. Fans are invited to visit RuinationNation.com for more information on this celebration of the almighty hop and a pair of IPAs that pay fitting homage to beer’s boldest element.

You’re welcome…again.
