Saison Week Starts Saturday!

Welcome to the month of April. Spring is in the air, and so is the Saison style of beer.

We’ll be featuring Saisons at the shop beginning Saturday, April 15th – April 22nd. 

We chose this style for April as it neatly fits in for this time of year. ‘Bier de Saison’ literally translates to ‘beer of the season’ and originally brewed by farmers in the French speaking part of Belgium. Saisons are commonly referred to as ‘farmhouse style ales’. What this means more generally, is that they were brewed with whatever ingredients were available down on the farm. The beer would be brewed at the end of winter, stored when it was still cool (as refrigeration was not available), and consumed during the warmer months. Farm workers in the fields were allotted up to 5 liters each day. We’re not sure how much work they actually got done, but at least they were happy. Moderate alcohol and thirst quenching on the palate. Traditionally Saisons have enjoyed a wide style description. In modern times however we can narrow our focus on these beers.

Here are some general characteristics:

Pale orange to golden in color, these beers are fruity and feature citrus flavors. Moderate hop presence gives way to pepper and/or clove flavors. Moderate maltiness marries into a light alcohol presence. A light to medium mouth feel enhances the fruit and spice flavors.

Feeling Thirsty yet??

Come join us all week to experience these unique beers!!!

We have Saisons ready to go from the following breweries:

MAP Brewing Co. – Mountain Nectar Saison 6.3% ABV – 28 IBU
HA Brewing Co – Spring Saison 6.7% ABV – 29 IBU

Belgian Beer Week!

Belgian Beer Week—Sat. Feb. 28th-25th

Brewing in Belgium dates back to the first crusades, and ever since the country has maintained a strong tradition of brewing extraordinarily unique beers. American craft brewers have taken on many Belgian styles with some success, but the original Trappist and Abbey breweries of Belgium retain a distinct character that sets them apart. We have chosen an array of Belgian Styles, both imported and domestic, to try and give an overall picture of the beer of Belgium. There are definitely some styles missing here, notably more Sour beers and Lambics, but we plan on covering more of those beers during our Sour Week this summer!  

Here we have a run down of beer that we will be pouring, including a short description of each style. We’re getting thirsty already!

Selkirk Abbey Chapel 4.9% ABV – Belgian Whitbier: A Belgian Style ale that’s very pale and cloudy in appearance due to it being unfiltered and the high level of wheat, and sometimes oats, that’s used in the mash. Always spiced, generally with coriander, orange peel, or herbs in the background. The crispness and slight twang comes from the wheat and the lively level of carbonation. This is one style that many brewers in the U.S. have taken a liking to and have done a very good job of staying to style.

Viven Imperial IPA 8.0% ABV – Belgian Imperial IPA: Take an India Pale Ale and feed it steroids, and have a Belgian brewer brew the beer. Although open to the same interpretation as its sister styles, you should expect something robust, malty, alcoholic and with a strong hop profile married to the complex earthy flavors that come with a Belgian beer.

Delerium Tremens 8.5% ABV – Belgian Strong Pale Ale: Like a Belgian Pale Ale, the strong versions will also be pale to golden in color. What sets them apart is a much higher alcohol content that can range from hidden to spicy to devastatingly present. Expect a complex and powerful ale, yet delicate with rounded flavors and big, billowy, rocky, white head.

Boulder Good Trip 9.0% ABV – Belgian Tripel: The name “Tripel” actually stems from part of the brewing process, in which brewers use up to three times the amount of malt than a standard Trappist “Simple.” Traditionally, Tripels are bright yellow to gold in color. Head should be big, dense and creamy. Aroma and flavor is complex and spicy with a sweet finish. Tripel’s can be quite bitter for a beer with such a light body, but at times is barely perceived amongst the even balance of malts and hops.

St. Bernardus Abt 12 12.0% ABV – Belgian Quad: Inspired by the Trappist brewers of Belgium, a Quadrupel is a Belgian style ale of great strength with bolder flavor compared to its Dubbel and Tripel sister styles. Typically a dark creation that ranges within the deep red, brown and garnet hues. Full bodied with a rich malty palate. Sweet with a low bitterness yet a well perceived alcohol.

Cuvee De Jacobins Prestige 7.1% ABV – Flanders Red Ale: Flanders Reds are commonly referred to as the “red” beers of West Flanders. Belgian Red Beers are typically light-bodied brews with reddish-brown colors. They are infamous for their distinct sharp, fruity, sour and tart flavors which are created by special yeast strains. Very complex beers, they are produced under the age old tradition of long-term cask aging in oak, and the blending of young and old beers.

Come in for a growler fill or pint, or get a flight of all six for just $12. 

Holiday Beer? Yes Please!

So, here we find ourselves on the brink of yet another holiday season. This time of year brings countless reasons to gather, celebrate, and if we’re lucky, imbibe some rare and heart warming beverages. This brings us to our subject of the day: Holiday, and more specifically Christmas beers. Historically, these beers owe more to the darkened solstice than they do to Christianity as celebrations featuring the imbibing of alcoholic beverages date back well before Christianity.

Who can resist celebration when there is a chance to reset our seasons against the backdrop of a snowy, dark, canvas. And, although outlawed at times, the old guy with the big white beard and extraordinarily ruddy cheeks couldn’t be a better spokesperson for Christmas cheer. He sets such a lovely example, needing a pack of reindeer to guide him from party to party on a snowy evening. It’s no wonder that popping open a growler or bottle this time year is a tradition that many of us hold dear, especially with so many special options.

If guidance from our modern brewers is any indication, we’re clearly in for some fun this time of year. The majority of Christmas beers tip the scales in terms of not only special ingredients, but also alcohol content, making them winter warmers indeed. Perhaps the most interesting about these Christmas beers, is that the only concrete thing that keeps them all herded up in a group is that they are celebratory beers for the season. The ingredients and styles vary from IPAs to Bocks to Belgians to Stouts and on and on. Some use spices. Some use fruit. Some use fruit and spices. Some folks are loath to even consider it a Christmas beer if it is not well spiced. Some just brew up a super special hop bomb. Regardless, as beer nerds, we should really just light a candle and count our lucky winter stars. These beers are big, flavorful, and come in such a variety that boredom is cast out, alone into a snow drift to think about what it’s done. There are many, many reasons to cherish this season, and we think the Christmas beer is pretty high on the list.

We’ve brought in a smattering of beers for our Holiday Beer Week. You can taste them all week at the shop, and we’ll be pouring flights if you don’t want to miss a thing.

Here are a few of the beers we’ll be pouring:

Grand Teton Brewing—Coming Home Rye Barley Wine: 10% ABV – 75 IBU

Moylan’s Brewing—Spiced Winter Lager: 6.0% ABV – 28 IBU

Brasserie Silly—Silly Noel Tripel Blonde: 9.0% ABV

Brouwerij Van Eecke—Kapittel Winter: 7.5% ABV

Iron Horse Brewing—Cozy’er Sweater Imperial Oatmeal Stout: 8.1% ABV – 35 IBU

Deschutes Brewing—Jubelale: 6.7% ABV – 65 IBU

Carter’s Brewing—The Gatherer Holiday Porter: 6.0% ABV – 30 IBU

Meadowlark Brewing—Snowflake Gingerbread Ale: 6.3% ABV – 11 IBU

Cheers!

The Dram Shop goes to Sierra Nevada Beer Camp!

Last spring I had the pleasure of getting an invitation from Sierra Nevada Brewing to attend their  Beer Camp at the original brewery in Chico, CA. It sounded cool, but I had to think about it. Let’s see here: three days at the Sierra Nevada brewery with a small group of fellow campers learning about the company and their processes, ogling their state of the art facility, tasting rare and experimental beers, eating amazing food, designing our own beer recipe, and brewing own batch of beer with one of Sierra’s top brewers…. My schedule became instantly clear. A shocker I know. After all, Sierra Beer camp is a sort of coveted experience in the craft beer world. And to be honest, with the shop having been open less than a year, I was flattered that they asked me.

img_0764-2

The first order of business was an email conversation prior to heading to Chico, in order to get a head start on our beer recipe. We settled on the idea of doing a New Zealand inspired beer with all of the hops coming from the Pacific country. Some of these hops can be tough to get but a brewery like Sierra Nevada has large hop contracts and, well, you should see the hop storage room at the brewery. It doesn’t hurt that they are also one of the few whole hop cone only brewers in the US–meaning that there are no pelleted hops used in any Sierra beers, a fact that they will tell you is reflected in the superior hop bouquet of their beer. We also decided to use the mighty kiwifruit in a nod to our brethren from the island nation. We had a diving off point, and would sort out the details in Chico.

img_0728

Upon arriving at the brewery, I got an eery feeling that I was in Ken Grossman’s (the brewery’s Founder) version of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory. From the immaculate brew house and cellar, to the cutting edge green technology being used literally everywhere, to the almost gilded taproom, I got the sense that his fingerprints were on everything. And to be honest, he’s done an amazing job with his brewery.

img_0708

But anyway, back to the beer. We decided that stylistically, a lager with a grain bill including munich as a base, pilsner malt, a small amount of wheat would be a nice way to allow the mellow, sweet notes of the fruit come through, and also to keep the nelson sauvin, Wai-iti, Waimea and Wakatu hops right at the center of the flavor profile. This style would also keep the beer refreshing and quaffable. We blended 20 pounds of kiwifruit with an industrial immersion blender for the 10 barrel batch that we brewed in the pilot brew house at Sierra. One interesting fact about this brew house is that it was designed to mimic the main brew house and cellar used for all regular batches of beer but to scale. This way, pilot batches can be brewed and scaled to large batches taking away as many variables as possible.

img_0703-1

With our batch of kiwi lager safely in the fermenter it was time to turn our minds to the name of our beer. Many names were thrown out, none of which bear repeating here. Suffice it to say that after sorting through our trove of creative hail mary’s, the good folks at Sierra Nevada settled on nice, non-offensive, litigation free name: I.B.U.zing Kiwis.

img_0797-2

The good news is, we finally got a few kegs of our I.B.Uzing Kiwi on at the shop, and I can’t wait to tap one and see what our creation tastes like!

Join us this Saturday and let’s take it for a test drive!

Wheat Beer Week!

Summer is upon us, and what better time to feature Wheat Beers! These crisp and refreshing beers are perfect for this time of year. They feature low alcohol content, but do not come up short on flavor. There are many modern versions of wheat beers that vary from fruit infused to hop crazy. We’ve featured what we hope is a nice balance of old and new world examples of this classic style of beer. Here’s a tiny snippet of background information, just so you’re not flying blind here:

Wheat beers fall into two major categories: German weizenbier, of which the better known hefeweizen is a type, and Witbier, the Dutch version which is based on the Belgian brewing tradition of using coriander and orange peel to add depth of flavor profile. The main characteristic of wheat beers however, is that they use at least 50% wheat in the grain bill, cutting down on the malted barley used. The increased amount of wheat, containing higher protein than barley, result in a thicker, longer lasting head, as well as a ‘phenolic’ character which comes across as flavors of spice, banana, and sometimes herbs.

This is really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to wheat beers, as berliner weisse, gose, and lambic are also included under the umbrella of wheat beers, among others. But, it’s hot and we’re thirsty so here’s our line up for Wheat Beer Week at the shop:

Hofbräu Hefe Weizen
5.1% ABV – Munich/Germany                              
Back in 1602 Weissbier could only be brewed by ducal privilege. It was Munich’s first Hefe Weizen. Hofbräuhaus enjoyed this exclusive right for nearly 200 years, thus holding a monopoly on Weissbier in Bavaria. Characterized by its sparkling rich foam and distinguished by its unforgettable refreshing and fruity taste.

Hoegaarden Witbier
4.9% ABV – Hoegaarden/Belgium
500 years went into making this beer that features the aroma of orange peel, coriander and herbs that the merry monks imported from sunny Curacao. Light yellow and naturally murky, and the soft foam adds a cloudy finish. Then there’s the soft taste, light and slightly sweet and sour and with subtle citrus notes.

Selkirk Abbey Chapel
4.9% ABV – 20 IBU Post Falls/ID
Selkirk Abbey’s classic Belgian witbier is light in body and delightfully easy-drinking; brewed with orange peel and coriander to provide a kiss of citrus that’s sure to be refreshing any time of the year.

Highlander Wolf Point Strawberry Wheat
5.0% ABV – 18 IBU Missoula/MT
This classic fruit forward wheat beer from Highlander Brewing features a huge strawberry aroma, mild fruit taste, and soft mouth-feel. Look for biscuit overtones and a smooth, creamy head.

Lone Peak Raspbeery Wheat
3.9% ABV – 23 IBU Big Sky/MT
No overwhelming sweetness here, just crisp raspberry goodness. Adding the Oregon raspberries while our yeast are still active means the little guys take care of all that extra sugar before it gets into keg. The result is a refreshing beverage meant for the heat of summer.

Meadowlark Teddy Roosevelt – American Badass – Barrel Aged Wheat Imperial IPA
7.9% ABV – 95 IBU Sydney/MT
Brilliant gold topped with a mountainous white foam head. This Imperial Wheat IPA is smooth-bodied with hop characteristics of pine and stone fruits. Oak-aging lends a vanilla or almond-like flavor and aroma and smooths out the beer’s bitterness and warmth.

Flights of 6 for $12, or available by pint

Cheers!

First Friday: Ecuador Photo Exhibition and Earthquake Relief Fundraiser

Last year, Kay Grissom-Kiely and her family spent six months living, attending school, and working in Cuenca, Ecuador (8,500 ft elevation in the Andes). They traveled extensively to various parts of the country, exploring the diverse culture and geography of jungles, mountains, oceans, islands, Inca ruins, small villages, and cities. Kay’s camera was in tow at all times, documenting their journey and revealing the soul of Ecuador with an attentive, creative eye. The camera allows Kay to see the world differently. She hopes this body of photos will inspire.

In April, the Andean coast of Ecuador was struck by a devastating 7.8-magnitude and four days later a 6.0-magnitude earthquake. Nearly 600 people died and more than 7,000 people were injured along the Northern coast. Hundreds of communities were flattened, homes collapsed, and people are still living under plastic tarps without running water or adequate sanitation. It will take years to rebuild these towns and remote communities, including lots of resources.

Now that I’m back in Montana, I’ve struggled with how to help from so far away. I decided to donate all sales from this photography exhibition to help those suffering in these remote, devastated communities. Specifically, I will donate funds to help get kids back to school and help restore meaning to their lives in the midst of the distress in their town. This fundraising effort will help re-build schools in the coastal town of Canoa, Ecuador, requiring funds for teacher salaries, books, desks, supplies, and counseling. I love Ecuador—the people, diversity, culture, animals, and land—and this is my effort to help.

Please click on the link to learn more about how you can donate or contact Kay at kgkiely@earthlink.net to purchase prints.

 

Maibock week kicks off Sunday!

All of the Maibock beers we’ll have on tap this week are for German Texans. What? German Texans you ask? That’s right folks, German Texans. The basic Bock style of beer, and granddaddy to the Maibock, was popularized in the Bavarian region of Germany in the 13th century. And Bavaria is big. Bavaria is so big that it’s been referred to as ‘The Texas of Germany’ dating back to at least the 1950’s. First brewed in the town of Einbeck, Bock beers got their name as the local dialect bastardized the name of the town into Ein Bock, meaning ‘Billy Goat’ in German. That’s why you always see goats on the labels of these German bock beers.

But we digress, as usual. Bocks are traditionally a celebratory beer, and hence they have a bit higher ABV, coming in around the 7-8% range. They won’t put you on your bottom immediately, but you’ll know you’re having a good time. Maibocks in particular feature a dry, and somewhat hopped finish. They are lightly malted, yellow to golden in color, with a medium mouthfeel. Often times you’ll taste notes of spice and pepper in this thirst quenching and flavorful spring offering.

We’ll be featuring 6 different Maibock beers all week. Come try a flight of all 6 for $12!

Here’s a list of Maibocks that we’ll have on tap at the shop all week long:

Hofbräu Maibock 7.2% ABV – Munich/Germany: Hofbräu Maibock has the longest pedigree of all Munich’s Bocks. Its aromatic flavor and alcoholic content of approximately 7.2% by volume makes it one of the best creations from Hofbräu’s brewing kettles. Hofbräu Maibock marks one of the high points in the beer-lover’s calendar!

Gordon Biersch Maibock 7.3% ABV – 25 IBU – Palo Alto/CA: Gordon Biersch Maibock achieves its rich malty flavor from dark roasted caramel malt, and lots of it. Maibock is a great beer to accompany robust flavors. The rich flavor from the dark-roasted caramel malt complements the moderate level of bitterness to create a perfect balance. Maibock is available seasonally from February through April.

Kettlehouse Maibock 7.5% ABV – 27 IBU Missoula/MT: Kettlehouse Maibock is a full bodied, golden amber, aromatic and richly malted lager. Traditionally served in the spring, this bock is a little on the sweeter side.

Bayern Maibock 7.0% ABV – 23 IBU Missoula/MT: Bayern Maibock is the typical Bavarian spring-opener with lots of body and more. The color is golden brown and if you like malt flavor, this is it. Bayern Maibock is very malty and very easy to drink! This beer is brewed with two-row Harrington and Munich malt, has a moderate amount of Hallertauer and Saaz hops.

Blacksmith Maibock 6.3% ABV – 30 IBU Stevensville/MT: The Maibock style of beer tends to be lighter in color than other Bock beers and often has a significant hop character with a noticeable alcohol around the same as a traditional Bock. Maibocks are customarily served in the spring and are oftentimes interrelated with spring festivals and celebrations.

Grand Teton Barrel-Aged Lazy Marmot Maibock 8.0% ABV Victor/ID: Our 2014 strong pale lager aged in freshly-dumped Jackson Hole Winery Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. Look for hints of fruit on the nose as well as a strong malt backbone to back up the perceived fruity sweetness. This beer has dried out considerably in the barrels and has taken on a new profile of classic oak flavors. A great beer as an introduction to barrel aged beers.

Carter’s Loading Dock Maibock 7.0% ABV – 15 IBU Billings/MT: A classic Maibock featuring spicy and peppery notes with a dry finish.

– Prost!

Saison Week starts Sunday, April 17th!

Welcome to the month of April. Spring is in the air, and so is the Saison style of beer.

We’ll be featuring Saisons at the shop beginning Sunday, April 17th for a week.

We chose this style for April as it neatly fits in for this time of year. ‘Bier de Saison’ literally translates to ‘beer of the season’ and originally brewed by farmers in the French speaking part of Belgium. Saisons are commonly referred to as ‘farmhouse style ales’. What this means more generally, is that they were brewed with whatever ingredients were available down on the farm. The beer would be brewed at the end of winter, stored when it was still cool (as refrigeration was not available), and consumed during the warmer months. Farm workers in the fields were allotted up to 5 liters each day. We’re not sure how much work they actually got done, but at least they were happy. Moderate alcohol and thirst quenching on the palate. Traditionally Saisons have enjoyed a wide style description. In modern times however we can narrow our focus on these beers.

Here are some general characteristics:

Pale orange to golden in color, these beers are fruity and feature citrus flavors. Moderate hop presence gives way to pepper and/or clove flavors. Moderate maltiness marries into a light alcohol presence. A light to medium mouth feel enhances the fruit and spice flavors.

Feeling Thirsty yet??

Come join us all week to experience these unique beers!!!

6 American Saisons on tap all week. Flights of 3 or 6 will be available as well as pints. It’s farmhouse beer time!
