Two new beers now on tap at the Hammond River Brewing Beer Bar. The first one is a brand new Imperial IPA called The Unforgiven. Brewed with all Australia Galaxy hops to give it wonderful flavours of Citrus and Passion fruit. It’s 8.3% ABV and 126 IBUs.
The second beer is the Glenora Whiskey Barrel Aged Imperial Vanilla Porter. The perfect beer to warm you up in this weather.
Both beers won’t be here for long, so stop by for a pint.
On tap now at the Hammond River Brewing Beer Bar is Saltins Of Sweet. This is an Imperial Belgian Stout brewed with Salted Caramel that was a collaboration beer brewed with Maybee Brewing Company. The two breweries had such a blast both designing the recipe for this beer and also brewing it at both of our breweries. Collaborations like this with other local breweries is not only a shit ton of fun, but some amazing beers come out of it and best of all we get to spend time with some great local brewers.
As for tasting notes, I’m going to steal Maybee’s post as they nailed it. Our version ended up being a little higher in ABV as it ended up at 9.98% ABV.
“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is a Double Belgian Stout with Salted Caramel. Designed and brewed by staff from both breweries at each brewery location, the Maybee Brew Co. version of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice weighs in at a respectable 9% ABV. Spec wise, it is 37 SRM and 32 IBU; and as per Belgian-inspired beers, this one is highly carbonated for increased drinkability. Appearance wise, this beer is dark as a mid November night. It has beautiful creamy mocha head with persistent Belgian lacing. Up front, the aroma has salted caramel, toffee, and clove. Dark stone fruit such as plum and raisin are present, along some malt sweetness and general spice. Taste wise, this beer has a medium body, and is well-balanced. Raisin, plum, and prune dance on your tongue while a hint of salinity, along with toffee and caramel arise from the Salted Caramel addition. A smooth spice and warming heat finishes with a velvety texture from the carbonation.”
Today we are brewing HRB’s 100th batch in the new brewery. Since it’s our 100th, we are brewing a brand new beer. It’s an IPA brewed with fresh Lemongrass, Kaffir Lime, and all local Soriachi Ace hops from Moose Mountain Hops. The beer will appropriately be named Ahead By A Century. :)
November 7th and the garage door is up for Patio Pints. Gotta love it.
