Again, we will have our Brewery of the Month BBC come to pour again. This time on Saturday, June 18th. Last week we showcased their lighter offerings such as Gold Spike Kolsch and Busker Pilsner. This week we will lean toward their darker side. We try to show off everything that a brewery has to offer in these Brewery of the Month tastings. With Berkshire and their large line up for core and seasonal offerings, we need two tastings just to fit it all in. We’ll still have the lighter offerings for tasting, but we’ll be focusing on the stouts and porters of the famous South Deerfield brewery. June 18th, 1-3pm.
New comers to our shelves, long standing brewers in western Massachusetts, Flying Dreams is taking root in Worchester as base for operations. Previously the brewmaster at Gardner Ale House, head brewer Dave Richardson is bringing all his experience and creativity to his own project. Taking traditional styles, Dave does the American beer drinking proud and plays around with them to brew unique flavors and styles. Join us to taste the line up from one of Massachusetts newest breweries. June 17th, 4-6pm.
The Brewery of the Month for July is Berkshire Brewing Co. Long time friends, we thought it would be nice to offer up some aged offerings as well as some new ones. We’ve got their 12 packs on sale for $14.99 as well. Doesn’t hurt to try. Tasting 4-6pm on Friday, June 10th.
Been a hot minute since we’ve had these scientific brewers beers pouring in our store, so we will have come out Saturday 14th, 1-3pm. The very knowledgeable Lisa will be here pouring beer, talking about the beer and brewery, and answer any questions that you might have about what it is you are trying. A fun, ever-experimenting brewery, you’ll find something unique at every tasting.
It may technically be out of beer season (Sam Adams Summer just hit the shelves,) but it definitely is not out of our minds. Spring just started and we thought it wise to offer a spring beer during the season it was brewed for. Sierra Navada is a staple craft beer that has set and reset the bar for quality and consistency, their Ruthless Rye is no exception; a spicy and rugged IPA with fruity, citrus and herbal hop notes balanced with the dry spiciness of the rye, making the beer aggressive yet comforting. The Ruthless may be an excellent beer, but we’ve made it better by putting it on sale for $8.99 per 12-pack. Don’t hesitate because the price will disappear as soon as the product does.
We hear quite a bit about the ‘Craft Beer Movement’. ‘Craft beer’ is everywhere and, in the industry, people just cannot stop talking about the continually increasing sales in that market. With all this clamor about craft beer and with new breweries springing up all over the place I see an interesting, almost desperate, trend where everyone in the beer business is trying to define the craft beer market and get a piece of the action.
By definition, a ‘Craft Brewery’ is one with an annual production of 6 million barrels, or less. It is seen as much more than that, though, as creative marketing efforts, eclectic brews and demand spikes over limited releases point towards an incredible market force. Read More about Beer, it’s good…
