St Patty's Day

As a fun addition to the St. Patrick's Day shannanigans, we'll be releasing our Barrel Aged Iron Horse on Nitro that day! Ought to be delicious!


Bottle releases

It's coming that time of year again for the HiFi bottle release! We'll be releasing 90 cases of the Barrel Aged HiFi in mid-February (exact date TBA).

Also coming along shortly afterwards will be the release of the Finlaggin Barrel Aged Scotch Ale, which we brewed back in September specifically for barrel aging with peated malt to reflect the flavors of a fine scotch (the name is a loch in the scottish highlands). The release of this ale will be about mid-March, again the exact date will be announced later.


Wallonian Saison

We'll be finally getting into our Wallonian Saison this coming Monday, the 23rd. For those anxious mug clubbers who are ever so desirous for a free pint, we'll be holding a tapping party in the Pub Room from 5-6pm. Tapping at the bar will be at 5pm as well

The term "Wallonian" refers to a region of Belgium, which I suppose has some governing forces on the style, but mostly it's just fun to say. We threw a pound of ginger root into the last moment of the boil to give the brew just a light kick of ginger spice. It finished out nice and light in color (a contrast to the weather and stouts that reign this time of year) and came out to about 9.4%abv, with a very light hopping giving way to a slightly sweet finish.
