Hopworks Abominable Winter Ale Returns to Shelves Next Month

PORTLAND, Oregon – Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) is releasing the cult-classic Abominable Winter Ale beginning in October. This Northwest Organic Winter Ale is available in 16 oz. cans, 22 oz. bottles and on draught in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and British Columbia bars, pubs, and stores.

 

Abominable Winter Ale emerges from the depths of our brewery every winter. Made with organic Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, and Simcoe hops, Abominable has a complex floral, spicy and citrus backdrop and Munich and caramel malts provide some balanced sweetness. Abominable is 7.3% ABV and 70 IBU.

  

Abominable is HUB’s most popular seasonal beer and has inspired countless creative homages by Abominable fanatics around the country. This year Bella Organic Farm has created an Abominable haunted corn maze for autumnal thrill seekers.

 

In February, Hopworks will release the next of the company’s seasonal legends, Rise-Up Red, a gold medal-winning Northwest Red Ale that will feature a fun new design for 2015.

30 pack? How about a 99 pack!


A Texas-sized canned beer package!

It's about this time that college students around the country are landing back on campuses and scraping together their change for 30-packs of whatever light lager is cheapest. But, down in Texas, where things are indeed bigger, Austin Beerworks might just have a better tasting solution for satistfying thirsts en masse. This week they'll release what is likely the largest retail beer package ever created - say hello to the 99-pack!

Appropriately priced at $99.99, and in limited supply, Austin Beerworks' 99-pack of Peacemaker Extra Pale Ale is indeed a real thing...seriously...according to Austin Beerworks it's "real, really, real!" Per their recently launched site promoting the historic event, "It’s not only real, it’s an amazing deal: ninety-nine beers for $99. That’s 82 pounds of craft beer! Over seven feet of crisp, flavorful Peacemaker!


7 feet and 82 pounds of craft beer to go!

If you're in the Austin area and after one of these bad boys - and have some thirsty friends - you'll want to start your search this Thursday. Word is there are only about 20 of these limited edition 99-packs up for grabs but according to Austin Beerworks, "we'll be making more because apparently y'all like to party." Overall, this is a great way to promote their brand and their beer. Nicely done. This is what keeps the craft beer industry interesting! Visit www.ANYTIMEALE.com for more...

Sun King Plans Major Expansion

Indiana's Second-Largest Craft Brewery Plans to Expand to Fishers

FISHERS, Ind. - The Town Council will consider an economic development agreement tonight that would bring Indiana's second-largest brewery to Fishers. If approved, Sun King Brewery will build its second craft brewery on 12.76 acres located at the southeast corner of Kincaid Dr. and Park Central Dr., bringing an estimated $19.5 million in regional economic impact and 27,000 visitors to Sun King's proposed facility and the Fishers community. Fishers has committed to capture property tax for 25 years, estimated at $100,000 annually, to help offset capital costs and to fund surrounding public infrastructure.
  
"Sun King embodies the vibrant, entrepreneurial spirit that Fishers fosters throughout the community," said Town Manager Scott Fadness. "The expansion into Fishers not only creates a new destination for our community, but also aligns with our mission to create an environment in which high-growth, high-potential companies compete and thrive."

 


Sun King opened its doors in downtown Indianapolis in 2009 and has expanded its capacity by eight times since then. The brewery is expected to produce more than 28,000 barrels of beer in 2014 and needs to expand in order to continue to grow. "Fishers is the perfect community for our second brewery," explained Sun King President Omar Robinson. "The town is excited about having us, and we can't wait to produce our fresh local beer even closer to the many north-side residents who already enjoy Sun King, as well as introduce our beer to a new community. Sun King sells more craft beer in Indiana than any other Indiana brewery, and this new brewery will allow us to continue to meet the demand for our beer."

The new brewery will be purpose-built to accommodate future growth, and the tasting room will be large enough to hold hundreds of thirsty Hoosiers. Sun King will continue to brew beer in the current brewery at 135 North College Ave. in Indianapolis, and both breweries will offer Sun King's house lineup of Sunlight Cream Ale, Osiris Pale Ale and Wee Mac Scottish-style Ale, as well as countless seasonal and specialty beers.
    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thompson Thrift will coordinate and work with the Town of Fishers to cause abike and running path to be installed along Kincaid Drive, connecting 106th Street to the new brewery, which will enhance Fisher's trail system and provide residents with easy access to Sun King. Thompson Thrift is a full-service real estate development and construction company with offices in Terre Haute, Ind.; Indianapolis; Carmel, Ind.; and Houston.

"We are excited that once again Sun King Brewery has chosen Indiana as a fixture in its long-term business plans," said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. "We have worked hard to create an environment that promotes growth and creates more opportunities for Hoosiers, and we look forward to continuing to watch them expand here in the future."

About Sun King Brewery:

Sun King Brewing Company is the brainchild of Dave Colt and Clay Robinson. With the help of family and friends - Omar Robinson, Andy Fagg and Steve Koers - the first keg of Sun King beer rolled out the door for delivery in July 2009. Now available on tap and in cans at hundreds of locations around central Indiana, Sun King has grown into the second-largest beer brewer in the state of Indiana. The company's commitment to handcrafted seasonal and specialty beers has been rewarded with multiple medals at the Indiana Brewers Cup, Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup competitions.

Real Ale Brewing Releases
18th Anniversary Gose Cans


GOSE is the newest canned offering from Real Ale Brewing Co.

BLANCO, TX –  will be releasing its 18th Anniversary Gose state-wide in 12oz. cans this week. First served earlier this year at our annual anniversary celebration, this refreshing wheat beer was previously draft only.

“We originally collaborated with our friends at Odell Brewing Co. back in February to create the recipe, and we brewed 7 bbl at their place in Fort Collins, CO. As soon as we tasted it, we knew that it would be the perfect beer for our 18th Anniversary party and for the imminent Texas summer,” says Brewmaster Erik Ogershok.

Gose is a rarely brewed regional specialty beer from Northern Germany. A slightly sour ale, it is known for its use of coriander and a unique saltiness that is derived from the local water source. Our take on the traditional German style has a distinctly Southwestern twist - a bright acidity from the addition of pureed limes. The resulting tartness makes for a delicious and thirst quenching summer brew. “After the response we had at the anniversary party, it would have been difficult not to offer this beer in cans for the summer,” says Ogershok.

Sun King Brewery Announces
2nd Annual CANvitational

Indianapolis, Ind. - In 2009, Sun King Brewery brought Indianapolis local beer for the first time since the Indianapolis Brewing Company closed its doors in 1948. Sun King will host the 2nd CANvitational canned craft beer festival, Saturday, Sept. 20 on the west block of Georgia Street, located in downtown Indy.

The Sun King CANvitational will bring over 40 craft breweries representing 23 states and international breweries to Georgia Street and Pan Am Plaza from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. (EST). Tickets, available online at www.canvitational.com, are $60 for general admission day of the event and $75 for early entry.  Sun King is running a $40 ticket special for advanced general admission ticket purchased online before August 31st.  Event proceeds to benefit the Arts Council of Indianapolis.

The invited breweries were selected because of the quality of craft beer they are producing and, as the name of the event suggests, the festival will feature breweries that can their beers. Since craft beer's inception in the 1980s, bottles have been the most commonly associated with craft beer. However, over the last decade the breweries featured at the CANvitational have been led a revival of craft canning and helped change the way people view cans.

New to this year's festival, the CAN'd ART show on Friday, Sept. 19th located in the Indianapolis Arts Garden.  A celebration of the CANvitational's partnership with the Indianapolis Arts Council and the unique art that adorns the cans we love. Local artists have selected a variety of cans from participating breweries attending the 2014 CANvitational and transformed them into reinvented pieces of art. Join participating brewers and artists in a reception where art and craft (beer that is) collide.  Event tickets include complimentary appetizers and FRESH•LOCAL•BEER will be available. Tickets are very limited.

"We believe that cans are the best way to package beer and breweries from across the country, including a great number of highly respected and established breweries, have help affirm that idea by choosing to can their beer." Said Sun King Co-Founder Clay Robinson. "Cans keep beer safe from two of beers greatest enemies, sunlight and oxygen, in a way that glass bottles can't. Cans are also more environmentally friendly to make, transport and recycle, which is why so many breweries are currently making the choice to can."

In addition to great, canned craft beer, attendees will have plenty of food options for purchase from food trucks that will line Georgia Street. Music will be provided throughout the event by DJ Helicon and DJ Action Jackson.

"We have invited our friends from across the country who share our passion for crafting world class beers and we are excited to showcase what they do and why we can." Robinson added. "The most exciting part is that the majority of the beers available at the CANvitational aren't even available in Indiana, which gives us the opportunity to provide a truly unique experience!"
