Up Next

Coming soon will be our Summer Fruit Limited Reserve series:

Two Rivers Apricot Ale (with a touch of coriander).
Blue Bastard Blueberry Ale.

There will only be one keg each of these.
Stay tuned to this blog for release dates and more details, because these wont last long.
Beside being a whole lot of fun to brew, these are a nice way for me to "test the waters". If there is enough demand for these special brews they may come back as a full batch some time in the future.

You Gotta Be "Hopped" Up On Something!

Sadly, today will be the last day for the Maple Moon. I was very happy how this beer came out and I will miss it. It's been my go to session beer. Hopefully the demand will be there so I can brew it again next year.
So, thats the bad news, but here's the good:
On tap tomorrow...
Keg Hopped Deep Seven.
We cram fresh hops into a keg and fill it with our Deep Seven IPA. Let it sit a few days to meld with the hoppy goodness, then put it on tap-Yum!
The first keg of the series is dry hopped with Pacific Northwest Cascade hops. -Update: All gone
Keg two will be dry hopped with Goldings and Fuggles from the UK.
Test kegs have worked out great and feedback has been amazing.
Come on St. Cloud, show me you love your hops!
I also have two new lagers brewed and coming soon...
I'll keep you posted.

Something to try...

Today I mixed 1/2 Dubbel Donker with 1/2 Honey Raspberry ale and WHAMO! Very tasty. The fruity/spicynesss with the underlying chocolate of the Donker meld well with the raspberry and honey. Feel free to ask your server for this mix in a pint, or try a growlers worth to bring home.
I was put thorugh the ringer yesterday. I pulled my calf muscle the night before and woke up with my allergies on full power and a good limp. A visit with the oral surgeon late morning topped it all off. My mouth was on fire the rest of the day. The boys tempted me at band practice with Scotch, but I could only imagine the searing pain if it hit spot where the doctor knifed me. All in all the day was a blur. Feeling much better today I am happy to report.
