So what is new?
- Primal Pale Ale, Exile ESB and Lucky 7 Porter are now available in 12 oz bottles- and we are trying like crazy to keep up with demand. Sales are off the charts. Thanks!
- We've ramped up production of Lot No.3 ipa in draft. At Baltimore beer week events this was consistently the first brand to run out. Hey, I like hops too- we'll just make more.
- Anonymous Strong Ale continues to pour at the brewery tap room, but not for much longer
- Jacques Au Lantern, our Belgian-inspired pumpkin ale, is now on at the taproom. 6.1% abv, unfiltered and a whirlwind of spicy flavors and aromatics. It would take me a while to describe this one, it's probably easier for all of us if you just stop by and try it.
- We're aging some Lucky 7 on some sticky, gooey, aromatic Madagascar vanilla beans that Wes sliced up and threw into a tank ("all willy-nilly" was the technique that was employed, I believe). A couple kegs will hit the tasting room, and a few more will head out to some upcoming local festivals at Fager's Island and SoBo's, along with some of the Jacques Au Lantern.
- We seem to be at production capacity, so purchases of equipment to expand capacity may be imminent. Imagine that.
- We're running wild in the What's Up Magazine poll for best Maryland/Delaware beer, landing in the finals- our Exile ESB vs. Clipper City's Marz-hon. Special thanks to Mike Valliant and the Rise Up/Easton evo army for beating the war drums!
