West Palm Beach Brewery jumps into DACA political arena with Dreamers Lager

April 19, 2018 - 11:39am

West Palm Beach, FL – The West Palm Beach Brewery & Wine Vault is jumping into the DACA political arena with the May 2nd release of its Dreamers Lager, a Mexican lager made for Cinco de Mayo.

“I know that politics can be risky business,” says owner John Pankauski. “But I felt this was too important in issue to remain silent on.”

Pankauski should know. His grandparents immigrated from Poland and Lithuania at the turn of the last century with no money, no skills and unable to speak English. They suffered discrimination from those who saw European immigrants as a threat.

“Sound familiar?” Pankauski sarcastically asks.

Pankauski originally wanted to craft a simple Mexican lager. And then it hit him: he would craft a beer that was bigger than just a tap pull. He would create a beer with a message.

“People risk their lives in boats, hiking over fields and desserts, to make a better life for themselves and their families– who can fault them for that,” asks Pankauski. “In South Florida, we have many people from the Caribbean, and Central and South America who, like my grandparents, arrived by ships or rafts dreaming of a better life. Ponce de Leon was one of our first immigrants in the 1500s. Whether you’re from Spain, Poland, Syria or Haiti, we are all immigrants.”

Pankauski created a special image, which will be on a limited edition, Dreamers T-shirt available for free to the first 50 people who purchase a glass of Dreamers Lager and use the special code “I am a Dreamer, too.”

This Lager’s image has Lady Liberty at the center, surrounded by barley, hops, Monarch butterflies, and a raft full of people. Pankauski chose a raft as an image rather than an immigrant ship which his grandparents arrived on. The message is obvious: “Regardless of how you got here, we are all in the same boat today.”

“A Monarch butterfly migrates from Mexico to the USA. Some believe that the Monarch has a spiritual connection to Cinco de Mayo. It will serve as an important symbol,” says Pankauski. “After all, coming here, working hard, and making it is who we are. That’s our spirit. It’s not an immigration issue. It’s a Patriotic issue. We should support those who make the journey that our ancestors made before.”

Mexican Lager has a unique style and flavor characteristics, influenced by a Vienna lager, most probably by German and Austrian immigrants who arrived in Texas and Mexico in the 1800’s. Craft brewers put their own touch on the Mexican Lager.

“Our Dreamers Lager is brewed with Pilsner and Vienna malt, flaked maize, and organic blue agave nectar to add a touch of honey-like sweetness to a light, crisp, refreshing brew which we have laagered for weeks. You will taste freedom. I guarantee,” boasts Pankauski.

You can try a Dreamers Lager beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2, 2018. It’s only offered at the brewery.

On Saturday, May 5, Cinco de Mayo, Pankauski will donate 100% of all gross sale proceeds of the first 100 Dreamers Lager he sells that day to Americans for Immigrant Justice, http://www.aijustice.org/, based in Miami and Washington, DC. Americans for Immigrant Justice’s mission and vision is to protect and promote the basic human rights of immigrants and to bring about an American society where immigrants are not subjected to abuse or injustice; are not afraid to seek help; have a fair opportunity to make their case in the system that governs them; and have their contributions valued and encouraged.

The West Palm Beach Brewery & Wine Vault is located at 332 Evernia Street, West Palm Beach, FL 33401.

The West Palm Brewery has a production facility and tap room on site, indoor and outdoor (shaded) seating, and offers craft beer made right here©, limited production, premium and super-premium wine in The Vault, its Napa Valley tasting room and wine shop, as well as made-2-order food in its Intracoastal Kitchen.

Knee Deep Brewing responds to Sony lawsuit over popular “Breaking Bud” beer

April 18, 2018 - 7:42pm

Auburn, CA – The Hollywood Reporter shared on Tuesday that Sony Pictures is suing Knee Deep Brewing over its Breaking Bad-inspired “Breaking Bud” beer. Breaking Bud has been a sales boon at craft beer shops since its introduction a few years ago, leading the brewery to package it in cans as well as bottles.

As Knee Deep CEO, Jerry Moore, notes in a social media post on Wednesday, however, Sony previously acknowledged the beer and appreciated the nod to the popular show. Read on below…

***

From our CEO, regarding our friends at Sony:

I was surprised by the unexpected lawsuit filed against us by Sony yesterday, especially after they originally contacted us many years ago touting their appreciation of our Breaking Bud beer that made gentle fun of their show. Shortly after Breaking Bud was introduced, in early 2015, I actually received an email from a Sony representative that said, “It seems the Knee Deep team are big fans of Breaking Bad and we really appreciate the call out to our very popular show.”

Soon thereafter I spoke with the Sony representative and we discussed the potential benefits of a formal partnership between Knee Deep and Sony but we ultimately decided not to pursue such a partnership because, among other things, our label has always been meant as a joke and not something seriously connected to the show. At no point, during those discussions, did Sony ever threaten to sue Knee Deep over the name of the beer. I’ve always been under the impression that Sony had no issue with our Breaking Bud beer since, after all, the Sony rep is the one who told me he “appreciate(ed) the call out to our very popular show” which is hardly what one would expect from someone who thinks they can sue you for the “call out” if you don’t pay them a licensing fee, which is what I gather they now want from us.

Breaking Bud is one of our more successful beers, and I think our customers appreciate that the quirky label is a joke. No one has ever thought the joke meant we were endorsed by Breaking Bad. We are a small brewery and I don’t appreciate the distraction, not to mention the expense of having to deal with something that should have been addressed 3 years ago if Sony really had an issue with it.

At the end of the day, the quality of the beer is what has made Breaking Bud popular and we should all be able to take a joke.

***

Coincidentally, Knee Deep has released a beer on draft called RU-Deep-2 and a label approval from the TTB this week shows that the company has bigger plans for that beer. The label reveals that Star Wars character, R2-D2, is the inspiration behind the name though The Walt Disney Company has a registered trademark on R2-D2. R2-D2 peeks out at the bottom of the label and the label copy references the Star Wars universe.

Cantillon Saint Lamvinus production down 75% due to poor European grape season

April 18, 2018 - 5:28pm

(Brussels, BELGIUM) – The latest from Cantillon’s Facebook page

***

As you know, 2017 was not a great year for grape crops, and this was true for many different régions throughout Europe.

Because of this, we’ve only been able to produce 25% of the typical annual production of the Saint-Lamvinus, and so we have very few bottles to sell to the general public.

In order to avoid the overload as in past seasons we’re going to put certain suggestions we received (from you!) into practice to fight the buying and reselling of bottles by “Lambic mules”.

We’ll be putting a trio of bottles up for sale (for purchase online), made up for a Saint-Lamvinus, a Vigneronne and a 50°N, for the price of 50,00€.

But here’s the catch – THE BOTTLES WILL NOT BE SHIPPED!

This trio must be picked up from the brewery by the purchase within 3 months.
Proof of purchase will be required.

Unless otherwise decided, there will be no pick-up possible on Saturdays, as we have a lot of heavy tourist traffic on the weekend.
We are also closed Wednesday, Sunday and all public holidays.

1500 sets will be available for purchase.

Created for both the passionate beer lover and novice, Midnight Pig Tap Room’s unique concept allows guests to experience their self-serve beer tap room in which a central wall houses more than 30 beer taps.

Throughout the day on May 5, hundreds of bars, breweries, shops and homebrew clubs nationwide will host their local communities to brew on-site for a national, same-day homebrewing session. This year’s official Big Brew recipes—Rocky Raccoon’s Honey Lager and Dusty Mud Irish-style Stout—were handpicked by the legendary Charlie Papazian. Heralded as the “godfather of homebrewing,” Papazian is the founder of the AHA, which this year is celebrating its 40th anniversary. At noon CDT, all homebrewers and beer lovers are encouraged to raise their glass in a worldwide, simultaneous toast.

WHEN: All day long! Saturday, May 5

The simultaneous toast occurs at 12:00 p.m. CDT

WHO: Everyone! As long as they’re 21 and over, of course.

WHY: There over 1.1 million homebrewers in the United States, 40 percent of which started homebrewing only within the last four years. AHA Big Brew is a toast to the nation’s homebrewers and their shared love and appreciation for homebrewed beer, mead and cider. In 1988, May 7 was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day, and so the AHA created AHA Big Brew, held each year on the first Saturday in May, to celebrate National Homebrew Day across the U.S. and globe.

About the American Homebrewers Association:

The American Homebrewers Association has worked on behalf of the homebrewing community since 1978 and celebrates a membership of more than 46,000 homebrewers.

Marine Layer Foggy IPA: Pelican Brewing, The Bier Stein collaborate on a PNW hazy IPA

April 18, 2018 - 2:26pm

Pelican innovation combines with the creativity of The Bier Stein’s head buyer to brew a small batch of this juicy IPA with just a touch of haze

(Pacific City, OR) — There’s nothing quite like an early morning fog on the coast. The same can be said of Pelican’s new small batch masterpiece, Marine Layer Foggy IPA—born of a creative collaboration between Pelican’s Cannon Beach brewer Coren Tradd and The Bier Stein’s longtime beer buyer, Dave Stockhausen. The two popular craft beer leaders have innovated a delicious semi-hazy IPA which is on-tap now only at Pelican Brewing at Cannon Beach and The Bier Stein in Eugene—and only while the kegs last which could be just a few more days at The Bier Stein based on popularity!

“At The Bier Stein we are always looking for interesting, inventive beers you are just not going to find elsewhere so when this opportunity came up to co-brew with a talent like Coren at Pelican, it was a perfect opportunity for us,” says Stockhausen of The Bier Stein in Eugene, which boasts an 18-door cooler with over 1,000 bottles of beer from around the world and 30 taps with rotating drafts. “We had this idea to do a hazy or foggy IPA and I wanted to add the grapefruit to accentuate the stone fruit and tropical flavors. This recipe resulted in such a creamy and juicy IPA—I thank Pelican for a great collaboration and an educational experience.”

According to Tradd, Marine Layer Foggy IPA offers a light gold color with a slight fog and a thick white head. Aromas of grapefruit, sweet pine and ripe fruit combine for a flavor and aroma of mild malty sweetness. The new brew has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel along with a nice dry finish and a moderate level of bitterness balanced with its malty character.

The brewers combined two row malt, malted oats and malted white wheat with Meridian, Eukanot, Mosaic and El Dorado hops and Pelican’s house ale yeast for an ABV of 7% and IBU of 50.

While fog lingers, enter to win a brewing adventure at Pelican

While Marine Layer is on tap at The Bier Stein—possibly only a few more days based on its popularity, fellow fanatics can enter to win a ‘Brewers Getaway Weekend’ for two in Cannon Beach including a brew day with Coren Tradd and overnight lodging. Entry is open to passionate beer geeks only. Enter at The Bier Stein while Marine Layer is still on-tap—possibly just a few more days.

Like all Pelican beers, Marine Layer Foggy IPA is born at the beach by a team of award-winning craft beer makers known for brewing styles of beer that they themselves love to drink. Cheers!

Mill Creek Brewing Co. to distribute in Indiana in June 2018, signs with Zink Distributing

April 18, 2018 - 1:46pm

(Nashville, TN) – Beginning in June, Mill Creek Brewing Co. will begin distributing to the state of Indiana, with an initial distribution through Zink Distributing based in Indianapolis, IN. Indiana will be the third out of state market for Mill Creek, which entered the Alabama and Kentucky markets in 2017.

“We’re extremely excited about our partnership with the great folks at Zink Distributing,” says CEO Chris Going. “Their dedication to quality, execution, and a strong emphasis on the team aspect of selling beer align perfectly with our strategy here at Mill Creek, and we’re proud to add them to our growing list of amazing wholesale partners.”

Mill Creek Brewing Co. will initially offer their core portfolio as well as seasonals and specialty offerings throughout the year . The Tennessee brewery has seen immense growth in its two years of operation, a result of its strategic partnerships and distribution footprint.

“We are proud to introduce Mill Creek Brewing beers to Indianapolis and its surrounding counties, especially since we know its beverages are popular,” says Jim Zink, Jr., President of Zink Distributing Company. “As we continue to see a surge in the market for craft beers, Zink remains committed to distributing multiple brands of beverages from brewers who make high-quality products.”

Indiana is also Mill Creek’s first non-Southern state market, a geographical leap that hits home for their founder and CEO, Chris Going.

“Having grown up in the Midwest,” says Going, “I’m personally eager to get to back to my roots and showcase what happens when you mix a Midwestern love of beer with a Southern brewery’s flare.”

Cape May Harmonic Rhythm Belgian-style ale coming to Exit Zero Jazz Festival

April 18, 2018 - 1:27pm

(Cape May, NJ) – Cape May Brewing Company is pleased to announce the continuation of a seven-year partnership as the exclusive beer sponsor of the Exit Zero Jazz Festival, running April 20-22.

“Cape May Brewing Co. is proud to be the exclusive beer sponsor of the Exit Zero Jazz Festival,” says Cape May Brewing Company CEO, Ryan Krill. “For two weekends each year, the festival gets Cape May’s toes tapping to some of the best music around, and it allows us a chance to brew up a commemorative beer.”

This year, the brewery has devised a beer inspired by the popular cocktail known as a Moscow Mule. Characterized by the commingling of a strong ginger ale with muddled lime and mint in a copper mug, Cape May Brewing Company has replicated this in a Belgian-style ale called Harmonic Rhythm.

“We’ve been talking about doing a cocktail-inspired beer for a while now,” says CMBC Director of Brewing Operations Jimmy Valm, “and doing one for a classy time like the Exit Zero Jazz Festival seemed like the perfect fit! We wanted to do a cocktail that was well-known, and after brainstorming a few ideas and trying out some various cocktails, we decided that in beer-form the Moscow Mule would be the best bet.”

Cape May Brewing Company has been brewing the official beer of the Exit Zero Jazz Festival since 2014 with Sophisticated Lady.

“As much as we loved Sophisticated Lady, sometimes it’s time for a change,” says Head Brewer Brian Hink, “and this year, it just felt right to change things up! So, when trying to decide what kind of beer would replace Sophisticated Lady, it just made sense to go down the cocktail route.”

A hefty dose of freshly-minced ginger added to the boil is in the forefront, garnished with a hint of fresh mint and the juices of lemon and lime rounding out the flavor profile — a gentle burn from the ginger pairs beautifully with its bright acidity, bringing together a harmonious marriage of flavors. With its relatively low ABV at 5.0%, Harmonic Rhythm is the perfect weekend sipper for the Exit Zero Jazz Festival.

The brewery will once again be sponsoring the Cape May Brewing Stage at Cabanas, hosting such acts as the High & Mighty Brass Band and Heather Gillis. In addition, Cape May Brewing Company has lent their name to the $58 Hops Pass. With his pass, revelers will get first-come, first-served entry to all of the club venues of the festival: Cabanas, Carney’s, Carney’s Other Room, Iron Pier Craft House, and the Rusty Nail, all of whom will be pouring CMBC brews, including the star of the festival: Harmonic Rhythm.

“We pride ourselves on accentuating what Cape May and South Jersey do best,” says festival organizer Michael Kline, “so this is an ideal collaboration. And the music happening on the Cape May Brewing Company Stage at Cabanas Beach Bar and Grill is going to blow the roof off. It’s a really great fit for the brewery.”
