Draft party at the brewery

Not draught, but draft. If you are in a fantasy football league, and you’re looking for a central place for draft day, think of coming to Liberty Street Brewing. Bring the whole group and enjoy discounted beer (10% off for four to seven team owners, 20% off for eight team owners or more). There is no need to pre register, though it helps, just be at the brewery after we open at noon, and we will make space for your league. Why disturb the rest of the family by holding your draft at someone’s house? Come have fresh beer with your friends while talking as much sports as you want, and taunting them for poor draft selections. Order pizza or other local food to be delivered right to your group table, or bring in food or snacks, just be here to enjoy our space and beer.

New Brewer Series beer – Fast Fiction

It’s Monday again, and at Liberty Street Brewing, that can mean a lot of things, but most importantly, a new beer! Today we release another small batch of beer from the Brewer Series – Fast Fiction is a white ale made with Mt. Rainier hops, offering a soft floral aroma, and mellow bitterness with a clean finish. Very small batch, get it fast.

New Brewer Series beer – Panopticon; a biere de garde

Come and get it! Another fresh recipe from the brewers – they are running the gamut in beer styles, and this style has only been brewed at Liberty Street once before. Panopticon is a biere de garde, which is known as a “beer for keeping”, we made it to be enjoyed immediately. The Brewer Series beers are usually very small batches, so you need to get in early in the week to try them before they are gone.
Other beers that are getting scarce: Scribble and Pooh Beer. And with the summer closing fast, we are getting new beers ready for you, like: Pun-Kin Pie Ale, Octoberfest and Siamese Dream, as well as the barreled version of Pooh Beer (Bear L Hug).
Another thing to consider as summer ends, football season is here!!!! Bring your draft party to Liberty Street and enjoy special pricing for your whole group. We’ve welcomed several groups in the past few years, and even reserve the entire Upper Hall if your group is big enough. Contact the brewery for more information, or keep an eye out here as I will update you.

Key Lime Gose on tap for the Brewer Series

Another new Brewer Series beer will be available today. The brewers have made a small batch of a Gose style beer, but have added a bit of zest from fresh key limes. You can expect the traditional flavors of this German wheat beer to refresh your palette, plus an additional freshness from the lime zest. Again, this is a small batch, and it will go fast, so get in to get some quick.

New Brewer Series beer on tap today

Come to the brewery today and get some of the newest beer in the Brewer Series; Sacred Laser is a Saison coming in at 6.5% alcohol. It is a refreshing style to be best enjoyed on a hot dry day like the ones we’ve had lately. The Brewer Series is a small batch series headed up by Eddie and Matthew and it really shows their creativity and amazing skills. The last batch ran out in just one day, so be sure to get in and get a try before it is gone.13775752_1259075310777995_8860572264251825462_n

Waves of Grain on tap to help you through this hot weather

Our American style Hefeweizen is back on tap, and just in time to help you through this scorching heat. Waves of Grain has been a summer favorite for many people, and it is certainly easy to see why. Taste the banana and clove character from the yeast and enjoy the refreshing flavor from the wheat malt. This is a low alcohol beer, so you can have a few and still get the chores done. But if you need more distraction from gardening, get in and try a few other lighter styles we have to offer; Eagle Eye Session IPA, Scribble Berliner Weiss, Pub House Brown, and for a very limited time Blabber – a Farmhouse style IPA as the latest in the Brewer Series.

Brewer Series small batch on tap: Slippy (a Saison)

Our new brewers are having a lot of fun with the pilot system these days. On tap now, we have a new beer style for us in Scribble – a Berliner Weiss authentic kettle soured beer. Scribble started out as a test batch in order to try the kettle sour process, and it turned out so good, that we had to make a bigger batch of it. Come and try it with the newest beer to the line up, Slippy. Slippy is a Saison style (often referred to as a farmhouse ale). It is unhopped, but the light bite you’ll feel from the sourness will balance it out into a great summer beer with a lower alcohol content.
And keeping with the lighter beers for the summer, don’t forget to try Pub House Brown. And if grilling and spending time at home is your preference, then take home a growler to enjoy your Liberty in your own home.

Pub House Brown back on tap in time for the hot weather.

My favorite beer in the whole world, and it is just in time to bring us into summer. Pub House Brown is back on tap in the brewery, and it is better than I remember. It will definitely go quick (sorry, you can blame me), so please get in and have some. See why it is my favorite beer and why it was chosen as the topic beer for an international homebrew competition (Brew Bubbas Session Beer Challenge). At around 4%, you can have a couple of them and still mow the lawn or BBQ some meats.
And when considering sessionable beers, don’t look further than Eagle Eye PA to fill that hole in your life. We use Michigan grown hops from Top Hops in Goodrich, and they couldn’t give a more fresh flavor if you were chewing them. Maybe hops or dark beers aren’t your thing – maybe you like sour beers? Well, we have a new one coming soon to tap as we delve into the world of wild fermentation. Though under strict control, I will refer to the bacteria we use as wild. The wort is extracted and boiled, then cooled and inoculated with a pure bacterial strain to begin a souring cycle that lasts for days. We re-boil the wort and introduce a pure yeast strain to complete fermentation. The result is a refreshing Berliner Weiss at 4% abv and enjoyable by itself or with the traditional addition of syrups. This beer is called Scribble, so look for it in a few weeks, and get into it fast because it will probably be distributed so others can enjoy it.
If you haven’t been by the brewery in a while, please come by and see what is new, other than the beers. We have a few new shirts available, and have some new hats, including the ever popular trucker style hats. Check out the new jersey shirts – they are perfect for the hot weather (and don’t show the sweat).

Pooh Beer back on tap!

Yes, Pooh Beer is back on tap, and so is Eagle Eye. We don’t normally make Pooh Beer in the summer, but we had been requested by a few choice bars to make more. Trying to lighten things up a bit, we came out with a honey style lager beer named ‘Swarm Outside. This is a lighter beer at only 7.5% abv, but with the familiar taste of honey that you find in Pooh Beer. The lager finish is as obvious a difference as the color is, and that’s just what you need for the summer. Come in and try both of them to see the difference for yourself.

Eagle Eye PA is back on tap, and ‘Swarm Outside too!

Yes it’s warm outside – finally! So we made a summer lager with honey to be a warmer weather version of our popular Pooh Beer. Try ‘Swarm Outside today and see what a difference it makes to match a clean lager character to the fresh honey taste.
And now that we got the next batch of Eagle Eye ready, you need to know we changed it slightly to bring more aroma and fresh hop flavor to this beer. Always made with Cascade hops from Michigan, now we added Cashmere hops to the dry hop process and it is even better than before. Come get some today, and take some home in a growler to enjoy it while mowing the lawn or queuing up some meats on the grill. No matter what you are doing, you can maintain vigilance after a few of these sessionable IPA’s.
