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).
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.
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.
Here’s one you’re gonna love – the weather is finally starting to comply, and we bring you a great new beer from Liberty Street Brewing. ‘Swarm Outside is a honey lager brewed with a little wheat and a lot of honey. Coming in at 7.5% abv, this would appear to be a sipper, but after the first taste of the clean lager finish, you’ll empty the glass before you know it. Enjoy some today, but don’t enjoy too many – take home a growler,
C-Monster has finally made it back to the taps at Liberty Street Brewing Company – get in now to try it out. Also, don’t forget we have Clementine Lemon Thyme available as well. Today is discount growler fill day too.
With hopes of better weather coming very soon, we are happy to announce that Clementine Lemon Thyme is now on tap at the brewery. Stop in to get some today with happy hour pricing all day on Mondays. It is available in growlers to take home to enjoy with dinner. The savory aroma and flavors of fresh thyme go great with most mild foods, and the citrus finish cleanses the palette for your next bite or sip.
And with the World Expo of Beer coming up in a couple weeks, we just received results of the beer competition. Congratulations to all that have won awards, and special congratulations to the Liberty Street brew crew for winning bronze with Steamy Windows. It is always good to be recognized for a great beer, but an award like this can really help others to know about us. As always, Steamy Windows is always on tap at the brewery, and there are a few places to get it ontap. If you haven’t had it, get some soon, and you will agree that it deserves some attention.
Our session IPA is a little different from everyone else’s – you’ll notice the hop aroma first, and then the clean taste of fresh dry-hopped Michigan grown Cascade hops comes through. You’ll love this beer enough to have another one, don’t worry, at less than 5% alcohol, you have a couple and maintain vigilance. Come in and drink Eagle Eye today, and take it home in a growler.
We will be closing early on Easter tomorrow, so get your growlers filled in advance to go with dinner. We open at noon, as usual, but then will close at 6 pm. Also as usual, Sunday is discount growler fill day, so get a growler filled with your favorite, fresh beer.
And with Easter showing up, so does Majesty, our bourbon barrel aged imperial stout. Look for it at the brewery on Monday.
There’s just enough room in our small kegerator to put a very special, and limited beer on. Morning Bender is our popular Emperor Norton Imperial Stout blended with cracked espresso beans. A very noticeable roast aroma hits you on your first sniff, and the chocolaty flavor of the beer will bring you smoothly into the mellow coffee taste. This is a very small batch with only three small kegs, so don’t expect it to wait for you.
And speaking of surprise batches to come to tap, look for Liberty 7 Tongue Shocker to come back soon in the tasting room. After a few special features in the Detroit area, there have been a few customers making the pilgrimage to Plymouth for this one of a kind sour beer from Liberty Street. This was our seventh anniversary beer made in the style of a Flemish ale, but brewed with Hibiscus flowers. Aged in a red wine barrel for more than a year, the earthy tones are kicked back with a stable sourness. A very dry finish to this beer will make you want more quick. Keep following here for more news on this special release.
And just to keep things impressive, this years Majesty is finally out of the barrels, and conditioning in the tanks, so help us blow through some of our beer lines so we can bring these new beers online faster.
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.
And if you really like it when we change up the beer list, then help us switch out to the next beer faster by getting one of our taps freed up. 8 Ball is next on the hit parade, and I personally can’t wait until it is back on tap.
