8 Ball IPA is on tap now in the brewery.There are a couple batches, but we expect this beer to go by pretty quick, so be sure to get some at the source while you can.Our black IPA named
I know the weather is a bit on the nippy side, but when you come to the brewery you can warm up a few different ways. We have another new beer for you to try – well, another version of a beer for you to try. ‘Swarm Outside is a honey lager recipe that I am trying to perfect, so give us your opinion on which batch you prefer (assuming you were fortunate enough to get a taste of recipe number one). The first batch went really quick, but when we only make 10 gallons, that’s gonna happen. Make sure you get a taste of this new recipe and let us know what you think – ‘Swarm Outside is scheduled to be a summer release, and is intended to be a ‘sister’ recipe to the very popular Pooh Beer honey porter. ‘Swarm Outside is just a little bit lower in alcohol than Pooh Beer (7.5% as opposed to 10%), but the lighter color and finish will be the most obvious differences with this beer – perfect for the summer weather.
So we finally brought back another customer favorite with our popular Pub House Brown, a mild brown ale. This is a little bigger than my normal recipe, coming in at 4% abv, but such a small amount of grain just won’t work in our bigger equipment. Very tasty, and a good session-able beer that still has a lot of character. The original recipe is a bit lower normally, and was the inspiration of a national homebrew competition a few years back.
We’ve been experimenting with some new hops that have become available to us from Top Hops Farms in Goodrich, MI. Sean has been a friend of ours for a long time and he has given us some trial hop varieties over the years, but soon we will finally be buying a fair amount of our total hop usage from them – and man, they are fresh! The most recent hop variety for your tasting pleasure is in the small batch “Cashmere Smash Beer“. I will admit to over hopping this one, but in my defense, it came out really great. If the idea of peeling a grapefruit and eating the wedges one at a time like an orange sounds good to you, then you may not be offended by the sour flavor of this locally cultivated hop. For clarification, when I say sour, I mean the hop flavor is sour, not the beer. The beer is more of session IPA so there should be no fear to at least try it.
If you’ve been by the brewery in the last few weeks, you’d know we had specials on 6 packs for the holidays. Well, we are now cutting a little more off to make room for more beer. Now, through the end of the year, all 6 packs in stock will be $8 with a special case price of just $24 apiece for Punkin’ Pie Ale and Steamy Windows. And while supplies last, you can get a Punkin’ Pie tee shirt with the purchase of two cases. At just a buck a bottle, you can’t afford not to buy a few cases for the new year celebration.
Emperor Norton has finally made it’s way back to the taps at Liberty Street! Now if you are the type to pickup on patterns, then you know Majesty is soon to follow. The first few batches of Emperor Norton went into our bourbon barrels in the cellar to be aged for several months before release. Of course we will bottle a small amount of the Majesty again this year, so we’ve got that to look forward to, right? In the meantime, come in and get Emperor Norton on tap now at the tasting room. Growlers are available immediately, but I highly recommend having a glass while at the brewery.
Everyone that knows us, or has spent some quality time in the tasting rooms, knows we don’t like to ‘toot horns’. But we did just complete seven years of business providing fresh craft beer to Michigan. Over the years, we’ve made so many styles as our anniversary beer, but today we release one that we are very proud of. It all started more than a year ago with a red wine barrel and a dream – a dream to make a certain style that has not been served at LSBC before. The reason it took over a year is because the fermentation catalyst is a wild yeast and bacteria blend that takes several months to finish it’s job. The result is a very dry beer with a sour flavor that’ll make you pucker up. Some of the beautiful red color comes from Hibiscus flowers that were used to compliment the strong sour flavor. Due to the feeding process of the fermentation, I do not have an accurate alcohol calculation, but I do know for a fact that it is more than 6 percent. We only have a few gallons of this beer to serve in the tasting room, as the remainder is going to some special accounts in the area.
Liberty Street Brewing Company is 7 years old tomorrow, and we have a special release beer to celebrate. More than a year ago I was given a special red wine barrel and we made a special beer blend to keep the barrel company for all that time. It is finally time to release this special beer tomorrow for our SEVEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY! We started with a special batch made just for the barrel, and then blended more into it, including a batch made with Hibiscus flowers. It turned out very dry with pronounced tartness, and the Hibiscus blends into it quite well.
If you’ve ever been at our Plymouth tasting rooms, you may have seen the hop bines growing next to our patio. Every year we get to use those hops in our annual release of Barbers Garden IPA. This years harvest produced some good bitterness characters that are far more pronounced than our regular IPA. Come in to get some tomorrow and see how much difference a whole lot of hops makes.
Pooh Beer is finally back on tap, and I say that in jest because it was just on tap several weeks ago and it is only supposed to be once a year. Well, I guess it just wasn’t enough for all of you, even though we made our first double batch this year. We made a lot more this time, and we will be having a little more fun with it – look for Bear (L) Hug coming out in a few months after Pooh Beer relaxes in our Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. There is even enough to get growlers filled right from the beginning, so don’t be shy, come to Liberty Street and get your Pooh Beer today.
