Row at the Blend Tonight

Cannery Row will be playing The Local Blend in St. Joe tonight. Start time is 8pm.
Really looking foward to playing. Our mandolin player Gary and I did a open mike on Wednesday to get us fired up for tonight. We headed over to the White Horse afterwards to enjoy a little Surly Darkness served by none other than Omar himself-tasty!
I've got a new song to try out tonight if I can get it memorized by then. It's my first waltz(maybe last), so it might be interesting.

Tripel Trouble Now On Tap

Here's the 411:

Belgian Monastery breweries have been making the worlds most interesting beers for many years. Many of these beers are only available inside the monastery walls only for the monks enjoyment. Beers of high strength are brewed to sustain the monks during their fasts. Our Abbey style Trippel is one such beer. Trippel means that it's three times the strength of a regular beer. Brewed with over 900 pounds of the highest quality Belgian malts and candi sugar. Belgian candi sugar looks like "rock candy" and contributes a "rummy" flavor to the beer. A Belgian monastery ale yeast gives this beer a fruity/spicy complexity while maintaining drinkability despite it's strength. Hints of honey, carmel, light fruits and a subtle spicyness are experienced in it's flavor.

Star Tribune Article on Winterfest

The Star Tribune had a nice write up on Winterfest. A couple of nice mentions for McCann's.
Thanks for the heads up sister in law!

Are You Looking For Trouble Punk?

Tripel Trouble is in the tank aging away. Look for it in a few weeks. Samples off the tank show great promise.

Thanks to everybody who stopped by our table at Winterfest. Flame was a big hit among the festival goers. It is so nice having a one on one talk with Minnesota beer lovers. I tried a great many amazing brews during the night. Minnesota brewers are brewing some great beers.

I apologize for our limited availablity of some of our brews at the pub currently. Our Fermentation tanks are full and things should be back on line soon-the Amber will be back on tomorrow.

A Crazy Week

Flame will be on tap tomorrow afternoon. I hope there is some left for the Cloudy Town Brewers meeting. If you are interested in home brewing stop on in at 7:30 and join the fun.
Flame is a strong amber ale brewed with exotic sugars and organic flame raisins. It is aged on toasted oak. Flame is where beer and wine meet in a torrid love affair.
After it's debut At the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild's Autumn Brew Review, we recieved many emails asking about it's return. There is only five gallons available at the pub(the other five gallons will be at Winterfest). Growlers will not be available at this time. I hope to someday have it bottled in 750mls.
I have four consecutive brew days planned to try to do some catching up, and of course we will be traveling to St. Paul Friday for Winterfest. A busy brewer is a happy brewer.
