Craft Brewing and Distilling News for March 19, 2014

March 19, 2014

•Houston’s Saint Arnold Brewing Co. has released its first year-round entry in more than two years. Rolling out this month, Boiler Room Berliner Weisse was originally created by accident, when a batch of Saint Arnold’s Lawnmower label was incorrectly brewed. Rather than discard the beer, Saint Arnold brewer Stephen Rawlings blended the batch with a bacteria-rich Belgian beer, allowed it to sour in a boiler room, boiled it and then let it ferment naturally, resulting in a 3.5%-abv beer featuring both sweet and tart notes. Boiler Room Berliner Weisse will be available on draft starting March 19, with 22-ounce bottles to follow on March 24. The new addition joins Amber Ale, Brown Ale, Weedwacker, Fancy Lawnmower, Elissa IPA, Santo and Endeavor in Saint Arnold’s year-round craft beer portfolio.

•Escondido, California-based Stone Brewing Co. is debuting the latest in its Enjoy By IPA series. Rolling out this week, Stone Enjoy By 04.20.14 IPA will be available in limited quantities across 40 states, marking the largest footprint of any Enjoy By IPA release. The 9.4%-abv brew, which will be offered in 22-ounce bottles and on draft, will be removed from shelves if not sold by April 21. First launched in late 2012, Stone Brewing’s Enjoy By IPA series features a date—exactly 35 days after bottling—by which each edition must be consumed in order to ensure freshness.

•Honeoye Falls, New York’s CB Craft Brewers is releasing a new spring saison beer, Twang Belgian Farmhouse Ale. The 6%-abv ale, brewed with rose hips and heather tips, will be available on draft starting March 21 at the brewery and at select bars and restaurants throughout CB’s upstate New York territory. CB Craft Brewers’ year-round offerings include Caged Alpha Monkey IPA, MacBubba Scotch Ale, Canandaigua Lake Ale, Night Owl Cream Porter and other seasonal releases.
