If you remember this old favorite, or if you’ve never heard of it, get in to try it as soon as you can. This legendary beer is no longer a regular at the tasting room, so get it while this “one off” batch is available. Fans may recall it as being a lower alcohol beer, but this batch has been boosted form it’s original 3.25% all the way up to 4.5 – and if it isn’t enough to warm you up in this extreme weather, then get an Emperor Norton while you’re here.
Stop in this Thursday at 6pm for a special re-release of this years Logjam Pale Ale brewed with homegrown hops from the Rouge River drain basin. Members of The Friends of the Rouge will enjoy a special half off discount until this precious beer is gone. You can join while at this event, or just make a donation to the cause.
Then stick around this weekend for the Ice Sculptures! The annual ice sculpture festival is this weekend in downtown Plymouth, and we expect to be extremely busy, as usual. There will be no shortage of warming beverages at the brewery, so stop by and have a pint or two before, or after you see the amazing artwork in ice at Kellogg Park in downtown Plymouth – there may even be a shuttle nearby.
Of course beer would be at the top of most peoples gift list, and we can certainly accommodate that with the purchase of our growlers to go, or a gift certificate to cover a later purchase, and more personal selection. Or perhaps you’d like to get your beer lover the gift of Liberty for the whole year – get our growler refill subscription, and your loved one can enjoy a growler refill once per month until you get them another subscription next year!
Mug Club membership is also a great way to share Liberty as a gift – either annual membership, or lifetime membership will get you 20% off all of your beer purchases at the brewery (including kegs).
And we just received some new merchandise that can be piled under the trees too. There are two different baseball cap style hats, and a beanie to choose from, and then if you need to be a little more classy, then try one of our polo shirts in red, white or blue. The shirts roll up real nice into a Liberty pint glass for better presentation (who needs wrapping paper).
Not that I personally believe the apocalyptic prophecy, but it’s better to be safe, than sorry. That’s why we’re going to release Doom & Gloom on Wednesday instead of Friday (in case the end happens early in the morning). These beers were made almost two years ago, and if I’m wrong about the 21st, then at least you can say that you got to try them.
Of course, if I’m right about Friday not being the end of the world, then I hope to see you soon in the tasting room so we may wish you a Merry Christmas. And while you’re here. you may as well have a beer or two… and check out our new merchandise available in time for gift giving.
It was only four years ago when we first opened to serve great crafted beer to the people of Plymouth and beyond. Today is the actual anniversary date of our opening, and things are going well. We started out with a brief distribution of bottled product this year, and are in production plans to continue this coming year as well. By the end of 2013 we expect to be in full distribution throughout the entire state of Michigan, both in bottles and on draft at better beer bars and restaurants.
We’ve done a lot of things right, so far… we’ve done a couple of things wrong too. We definitely appreciate all of the support we’ve received from everyone, and we know well enough that it is because of you all that we are still going strong. We ask that you continue your support of Michigan craft beer, and Liberty Street beer in particular. Help us grow our brand throughout the state by asking for our beer wherever you go. Thank you.
This years batch of Barbers Garden IPA is finally here! Just as every other brewery out there releases their harvest IPA, we step up to the table with our popular version. We only make one batch per year due to the availability of hops that are grown right in our own back yard – or at least the barber shop next door to us.
On Wednesday December 12th, Emperor Norton Imperial Stout will be available in the tasting room. This 9.3% ale was just described as ‘chocolate cotton candy’ when tasted during transfer today. This will be considered as our (late) celebratory ale for this years anniversary of LSBC – four glorious years of Liberty Street beer for those of us that have been around since the beginning.
And then as an advance notice for those that like to be prepared (for the end of the world), we have a special dual release to celebrate the apocalypse. Doom & Gloom will only be available for a short time, starting on Wednesday the 19th. Doom is a barley wine weighing in at just over 12%, and Gloom is a wheat wine that is a mere 11% abv. Try them both… while you can.
We finally got our gluten free beer back at the tasting room, and we hope to keep it around a lot more often than usual. Please come by and try it, especially if you must maintain a gluten free diet.
Also, stay tuned here for more information on our upcoming beers for December – with a special release to celebrate the Doom & Gloom associated with 12-21-12.
Liberty Street beer is now on tap at Ford Field, home of your 4-5 Detroit Lions. If you happen to score tickets to the home games this year, you may be surprised to find Michigan craft beer available in the main concourse, but I assure you it is no mirage. We’re all the way on the visitors side, but for just 50 cents more to get a fresh, crafted and locally produced beer instead of the regular stuff – well, let’s just say that’s a no brainer. Jim and I will be at the game this weekend against the Packers to promote our industry and our beer, so if you’re there, we expect to see you.
But don’t lock your doors or bar your windows, let this monster of a beer in. One of our more popular specialty beers is this double IPA weighing in at 9.5% abv. Loaded with more hop character than usual with the use of a new blend of the “C” hops – the aroma is very pungent, and the citrusy notes come through strong in the flavor. This batch will not be available in growlers until November 7th.
This Saturday morning at 9 am, join us as we host the Sons of Liberty Homebrew Club at the brewery loading dock for Learn to Homebrew Day. Jim and I will be working on small batches along side members of the club and others interested in homebrewing. Come along and join us for this fun event with brewing demonstrations at all levels of difficulty and experience.
Our Octoberfest style beer turned out great this year. After lagering for several months it has eased into an amazing malty beer that closely reflects the expected characteristics for the style. This beer will not last long at all, so make sure you get some at the tasting room, at 5ive Restaurant, or at the Fall Beer Festival in Detroit.
