Brewery News: MA: Boston: Samuel Adams announces the return of the Oktoberfest Stein Hoisting Competition

0 comments
Press Release

BOSTON ... – Football. Foliage. Flannel. These are classic images that make us think of fall.  But over the past five years Sam Adams has added the sight of shaky-armed competitors at bars across the country, holding one-liter glass steins of OctoberFest beer, to that list. Started in 2011, the Sam Adams Stein Hoisting Competition is comprised of local events at participating bars and restaurants across the U.S., and at larger Oktoberfest gatherings like the annual America’s Oktoberfest event in Cincinnati. Competitors are required to hoist a one-liter glass stein filled with Samuel Adams OctoberFest, with a straight arm, for as long as possible. If you sip, spill, or bend your arm, you’re out!

“We started our national Sam Adams Stein Hoisting Competition to pay homage to the more than 200-year-old German Oktoberfest celebration, which itself is the inspiration for our award-winning and highly sought after OctoberFest beer,” said Jim Koch, Samuel Adams founder and brewer. “We’re thrilled to offer craft beer lovers our 2015 batch of OctoberFest and to celebrate our Stein Hoisting Competition’s fifth anniversary in a big way.”

This year marks the first time that craft beer lovers across the country will have the opportunity to witness the final round of the competition in a unique way: via ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. On October 13th, ABC’s hit late-night show will host the first-ever national Stein Hoisting Competition finals, where two winners – one male and one female – will each receive a Grand Prize trip for two to the 2016 Oktoberfest celebration in Munich.

Samuel Adams OctoberFest, one of the brewery’s most award-winning beers, is a deep red amber, medium-bodied märzen style lager with a rich malt complexity, a light Bavarian Noble hop note, and a smooth, sweet finish. First brewed in 1989, it is a perpetual drinker favorite with classic roasted malt character and sweet notes of caramel and toffee.

ABOUT THE BOSTON BEER COMPANY:

The Boston Beer Company began in 1984 with a generations-old family recipe that Founder and Brewer Jim Koch uncovered in his father’s attic. Inspired and unafraid to challenge conventional thinking about beer, Jim brought the recipe to life in his kitchen. Pleased with the results of his work, Jim decided to sample his beer with bars in Boston in the hopes that drinkers would appreciate the complex, full-flavored beer he brewed fresh in America. That beer was aptly named Samuel Adams Boston Lager, in recognition of one of our nation's great founding fathers, a man of independent mind and spirit. Little did Jim know at the time, Samuel Adams Boston Lager would soon become a catalyst of the American craft beer revolution.

Today, The Boston Beer Company brews more than 60 styles of beer. It relentlessly pursues the development of new styles and the perfection of classic beers by searching the world for the finest ingredients. Using the traditional four vessel brewing process, the Company often takes extra steps like dry-hopping, barrel-aging and a secondary fermentation known as krausening. The Company has also pioneered another revolution, the 'extreme beer' movement, where it seeks to challenge drinker's perceptions of what beer can be. The Boston Beer Company has been committed to elevating the image of American craft beer by entering festivals and competitions around the globe, and is one of world’s most awarded breweries at international beer competitions. As an independent company, brewing quality beer remains its primary focus. Although Samuel Adams beer is America's leading craft beer, it accounts for only one percent of the U.S. beer market. The Boston Beer Company will continue its independently-minded quest to brew great beer and to advocate for the growth of craft beer across America.

Industry News; OR: Salem: Oregon Fruit Products LLC annouces release of Oregon Speciality Fruit purees

0 comments
Press Release

... SALEM, Ore. – Oregon Fruit Products LLC today announced the company’s 14th addition to its Oregon Specialty Fruit purees made for the craft beer market.  The new grapefruit puree adds a touch of tart, citrus flavor to a variety of fruit beers, ciders, meads, and other fermented beverages.  The velvet-smooth puree consists of 100% Ruby Grapefruit juice and grapefruit pulp, with no added sugar, preservatives or additives.

“We’re seeing strong growth in our fruit puree business, all fueled by craft brewers who are seeking innovation with new flavor profiles,” says Chris Sarles, CEO of Oregon Fruit Products.  “Because our purees are made with the highest quality fruit and processed into aseptic packaging, brewers are finding it a very convenient and more consistent alternative to fresh or frozen fruit.”

Aseptic products are flash heated at ultra-high temperatures for a very short time to minimize microbes in the fruit puree.  The product is cooled quickly to maintain the best fresh fruit flavor and color.  The entire process is closed, with the package filled and capped in a sealed environment, without letting any contamination enter the system.  The majority of Oregon Specialty Fruit purees have a shelf life of 18 months in ambient temperature.

Oregon Fruit’s grapefruit puree is already inspiring some creative brews across the country:  White Street Brewing Company in Wake Forest, North Carolina has created a Session IPA dubbed “Grapefruit I-Plié,” made with Mandarina and Mosaic hops and fermented with grapefruit puree.   In Nashville, Indiana Big Woods Brewing Company now has a “Kemosabe Session IPA” full of hop and citrus bitterness.  Wicked Weed Brewing in Asheville, North Carolina is using Oregon Fruit’s puree for a Grapefruit/Honey Gose-inspired Ale to be released late 2015, while sour beer consumers will look forward to trying the barrel-aged grapefruit beer next year that Green Bench Brewing Company in St. Petersburg, Florida is crafting.

“When one of our brewers asked me to source a grapefruit puree, I immediately made the call to Oregon Fruit,” said Dan Kopman, founder of Schlafly - The Saint Louis Brewery in St. Louis, Missouri.  “We add purees to our fermentations, and the real grapefruit puree developed by Oregon Fruit gave our Dry-Hopped Grapefruit IPA a distinctly fruity taste without adding unwanted sweetness.”

Oregon Fruit Products’ grapefruit puree is now available in 42 lb. bag-in-box, 425 lb (55 gallon) drums, and 2,300-lb. totes.  The product is certified Kosher, made in the U.S.A., non-GMO, gluten-free and vegetarian.  Oregon Fruit Products does not use, nor does it allow, any of the eight major allergens (milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy and wheat) in the products or processing areas.

Oregon Fruit Products LLC
Founded in 1935, Oregon Fruit Products offers a complete line of canned, frozen and shelf-stable premium fruit for consumers, foodservice operators and ingredient sales.  The company is located in Salem, Oregon and can be found on the web at www.oregonfruit.com and www.fruitforbrewing.com.

Brewery Release: WA: Get It Now ... Silver City Le Fat Oak Barrel Aged Belgian Sour Scotch Ale

0 comments
Press Release
image courtesy Silver City Brewery


A batch over two years in the making, 2015 Le Fat was a scotch ale, but is a scotch ale no more. Belgian influences from a host of micro-organisms sour the once-sweet Fat Scotch Ale. Hints of fig, plum, and cherries occur naturally as a result. Over time the ale softens and mellows while gaining refinement and character through extended aging in oak barrels once used for winemaking.

Le Fat will be the first-ever Silver City Brewery beer to be released in 500ml packaging, a new standard for the barrel-aged series. Finished with a foil seal and a pearlescent label, the understated elegance is matched to the delicate nature of the flavors contained within.

A passion project for Silver City Brewery, brewmaster Don Spencer had this to say about Le Fat, "Each release of Le Fat is a true labor of love for the brew team and myself. There are so many man hours, components, and steps that go into the process of creating this sour ale." He added, "To see Le Fat in its beautiful bottle, prepared for presentation after the long development process is personally very exciting. We've anxiously waited months, even years, and and are pleased to finally share this unique creation with our fans!"

Le Fat: Oak Barrel Aged Belgian Sour Scotch Ale

Hops: Nugget, Cascade
Malts: NW Pale, Munich, Caramel, Peated, & Black
IBU's: 30
ABV: 9.9%

The convergence point right before you jump off into the wilderness of the Olympic National Forest on your way to the Pacific Ocean, resting between the edge of the Puget Sound and the base of the Olympic Mountains, rests Silver City. This Urban-Suburban experience is a sweet brewer's mash of Seattle city life and breathtaking outdoor adventure, all within ones reach. Beer, well made, brings the people of the "Silver City" together in celebration of having it all.

Celebrate the season with tradition and authenticity. This classic amber lager presents rich malty sweetness and spicy hop character. In Washington, we love the fall season; football kicks off, the weather starts to cool and an extensive variety of seasonal beers blow through like so many multi-colored leaves. In this storm of Pumpkin beers, Harvest Ales and other autumn-themed brews, Silver City Oktoberfest stands apart as one of the few proudly traditional styles of the season. No tradition is done right without the highest quality ingredients and process. That's exactly what Silver City Brewmaster Don Spencer and his brew team insists upon when crafting Silver City Oktoberfest.

Combine Don's 20 plus years of professional experience brewing lager beer styles, his extensive "research" trips to Germany including Munich's Oktoberfest, Silver City's new, state-of-the-art brew system, and the finest hops and specialty malts from around the world and you have one of the highest quality, consistent, coveted and downright delicious fall offerings in the NW. Prost!

Brewery News: OR: Portland: TriMet and Bridgeport Brewing Company announce the release of "Tilikum Crossing Orange Line IPA", celebrating the newest bridge in Portland.

Press Release

PORTLAND, Ore.— ... U.S. Congressman Earl Blumenauer and a brewer from BridgePort Brewing Company today proudly announced a partnership between BridgePort Brewing and TriMet. BridgePort Brewing, Oregon’s oldest craft brewery, released their newest beer, Tilikum Crossing Orange Line IPA, to celebrate the newest bridge in Portland.


Tilikum Crossing, Bridge of the People, is the first bridge of its kind in the U.S., carrying MAX light rail and Portland Streetcar trains, buses, bicyclists and pedestrians, but no private vehicles. Tilikum Crossing is part of TriMet’s MAX Orange Line that opens on Sept. 12, 2015 between Downtown Portland, South Waterfront, SE Portland, Milwaukie and North Clackamas County. TriMet asked BridgePort to create a special beer for the new Orange Line because it was a natural fit – they were the first craft brewery in Oregon and Tilikum Crossing is also the first of its kind.  

In that spirit, Tilikum Crossing Orange Line IPA is the first White IPA BridgePort has ever brewed. Dry-hopped with Lemondrop hops for aroma, this beer is made with 25% wheat, giving the beer a hazy light color. This new brew also uses Belgium yeast and is infused with orange peel, delivering a slightly sweet, lighter and more refreshing take on an IPA. The beer is available for Portlanders to enjoy on draft or in 22oz. bombers.

“The whole city is excited for the opening of this bridge, so you can imagine how honored we felt when TriMet asked us to brew the official beer,” commented Jeff Edgerton, BridgePort brewmaster. “Our team thought a lot about the actual visuals of Tilikum Crossing, specifically, the white-coloring of the bridge and TriMet’s Orange Line that will cross over the Willamette. With that in mind, we also wanted to make a beer for the people, since ‘Tilikum’ means ‘of the People’.”
