A Long Overdue Update…

So, clearly I have failed to keep my promise to update the website blog every week… I blame myself…

Anyways, here’s what’s going on, coming up, and bouncing around in my head:

-First and foremost, I am pleased to announce the return of ENLIGHTENMENT BRUT! Huzzah! Three cheers for the most labor intensive beer I’ve ever been a part of! So yeah, we will have 70 or so cases of Brut trickling out of the brewery (as fast as we can disgorge and cork them) and into your hands a dozen or so cases a week. Look for it at your favorite bottle shops and fancy restaurants (you know, where you buy our beer normally…)
-On the Brut front, we’re in the process of planning a nice big 10 bbl batch of Brut, the largest batch we’ve ever brewed by far! My goal is to build up a nice solid base of bottles and to have it back out year round soon! It is our flagship after all…

-In case I haven’t gushed to you in the past few months, way back in the early Spring we brewed a collaborative beer with the one and only Anders Kissmeyer of Kissmeyer Beer & Brewing. Our creation, “Titania,” is a Nordic Saison, drawing influence from Anders’ Danish roots and our local Massachusetts terroir. The beer features heather tips, chamomile flowers, rose hips, and MA wildflower honey, and was fermented and conditioned with the Enlightenment Ales farmhouse/brett blend. Look for this artistic collaboration by the beginning of August. Oh, and here’s a cool photo of Liz’s artwork for Titania!

-Transcendence, my American Farmhouse Ale with brett and a LOT of bright juicy American hops is currently undergoing a transformation of sorts in our newly inaugurated “wild tank.” Updates on bottling and blending this beer coming soon…

-So, I actually have a million more exciting updates and ideas I can’t wait to share with you all. I think I’ll save them for a post tomorrow as I’m exhausted from bottling Day Trip: Extra Hoppy Golden Ale and need to be up early to brew tomorrow.
