Craft Brewing And Distilling News for May 29, 2013May 29, 2013
•Dover, Delaware-based Dominion Brewing has partnered with retail store Dawson’s Liquors to create and launch a Czech pilsner inspired Belgian-style ale, Monk Czech, this week. Set to roll out on June 1, Monk Czech will be available on draft and in 22-ounce bombers in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. The 5.2%-abv collaboration beer was brewed using Saaz, Tradition, Motueka and Nelson Sauvin hops and Pilsner malt. It was initially produced as a draft-only experimental beer last year but is being released to the general market after a strong initial response. Fordham Brewing purchased the Old Dominion Brewing Co. in 2007 and brought the company to Dover two years later, forming the Fordham and Dominion Brewing Co.
•The Alaskan Brewing Co. is bringing back its Alaskan Raspberry Wheat Ale to its Pilot Series. Scheduled for release on May 31, the beer will be made available in 22-ounce bottles in limited quantities across the 14 states where the company’s beers are distributed. Raspberry Wheat is an American-style wheat ale created using 3,000 pounds of real raspberries that were added during fermentation. It was initially launched in 2010 as the first beer in the limited edition Pilot Series, which is a rotating collection of distinctive brews developed by the Alaskan Brewing staff. Previous launches to the series include Troppelbock, Imperial Red Ale, Birch Bock, Perseverance Ale, Imperial IPA, Double Black IPA, Barley Wine Ale and Baltic Porter.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
