Coming Soon to a Bodega Near You...

It's been months in the making, but we're pleased to announce that we will be distributing to our 3rd state:  New York -- more specifically, NYC and Brooklyn.  Yesterday, we shipped out 8 pallets packed full of beer to the Dora's Naturals warehouse. Coming soon to a bodega near you (among many other places), New Yorkers will be able to buy 22oz bottles of Gran Met (our Belgian Triple), Big Brown Ale (our robust brown/porter hybrid), and Pilzilla (a Kellerbier made with our house lager yeast). We also sent draft of these three beers and an entire pallet of White Magick 12oz bottles.

All the beers
Wrapped and ready to go to the Big Apple

It was a crazy couple of months. Kirt spent his weeks meticulously planning his brews in order to fill the NYC order and keep the pub full of our 6 flagship beers as well as brainstorming, brewing, and maintaining the 4 seasonal beers on tap. Our stock room was filled to the brim. We had to use ladders to reach the tops of the stacks of beer. And now, with our stock room feeling a little empty and our third state under our belt, we turn our attention to the Barrel Room Release on September 28th. We hope you New Yorkers enjoy our beers as much as we enjoy making them!

As far as pub beers go, the time for the Mosaic and Jenny's Cream Fraiche is winding down. Coming up next we have our Polish Lager, Poznań Zdjęcie, (made with all Polish ingredients) and named after the town Curt and Matteo's family emigrated from.  
Pretty sweet

We also have our next brew in the Single Hop Series finishing up its dry hop schedule. Using the same grain bill, this beer will profile the Amarillo hop (8.2% Alpha Acid, for you beer nerds).
