We should really update this page more often, and in all honesty we need a better ‘website’, but this will have to do for now. Thanks for stopping by again.
This past Saturday we held our first ever Hot Rods & Hops event. We’d like to thank everything that came by, brought their car, checked out the fine brews from Naked Brewing and Round Guys Brewing as well as ours, and enjoyed the fine music from Aspiga, PJ Bond, Brian McGee, and King Django & The Snails. In total, you guys cleared through four half barrel kegs of NCBC beer not to mention all the fine beer both Naked and Round Guys brought, so we hope you had a good time. Congrats to Mike Grote for winning People’s Choice for his 1968 Fastback Mustang and Bill Thompson for winning Best of Show, or as we like to call it, the Hop Rod Award, with his 1963 Ford Thunderbird. We can’t wait to bring this event back next year, and we thank everyone involved for their support and participation.
Next Friday, November 9th is our monthly Movie Night for charity. November’s charity is going to be the Bucks County Housing Group, which among many things, operates three food pantries in Bucks County in Penndel, Doylestown, and Milford Square. In addition to all the proceeds from entry going directly to the Bucks County Housing Group we’re asking everyone to please bring a canned food item so we can donate these along with the monetary contribution. With the recent damage and power outages created by Hurricane Sandy it’s important that food pantries like those operated by the BCHG can provide our communities with much needed services and food in times of need as well as to those that need assistance throughout the year. November’s movie will be the 1978 cult classic Animal House, so please come out and continue to support our charity efforts. Again, entry is $10 and you get a free bag of popcorn and a beer of your choice with your entry.
Have you had a chance to try our Fall seasonal, Dunks Ferry Dunkelweizen? It’s been on tap at the brewery and area bars for about three weeks now and we’re really happy with the way it has turned out. This past Thursday and Friday we brewed the last 30 barrels of it for the year, so be sure to check it out before it’s gone until next year.
This week we’re going to brew the last 15 barrels of Leon for 2012, most of which will end up in the bourbon barrels that have been patiently waiting in the brewery since the end of the Summer. We’ll have a small portion of that batch that won’t make it into barrels, and we plan on doing a limited bottle release at the brewery sometime in the coming weeks. We’ll keep you posted.
Our Holiday seasonal, The Neshaminator, our double German Honey Weizenbock should hit the brew kettle sometime in the next three weeks. This rich, smooth, and textured wheat beer comes in at 8.5% ABV and has hints of dried raisins, almonds, and figs mixed with the banana and clove that you’d expect from our authentic German wheat beer yeast. Expect a mid-December release at the brewery and hopefully in bottles as well. We say hopefully because if the timing goes our way this will more than likely be the first beer we bottle on our soon to arrive bottling line. More info on that shortly.
Alright, time to get back to work…..another batch of Croydon Cream Ale calls at 6AM tomorrow morning. Until next time….
