Well, here it is.  Columbus Day; the day after - the day after Bevtoberfest.  We just about kicked every keg there was.  There was NO food left and my firewood has all but disappeared.  The house dropped to a bitter 58 degrees F last night and thus all hope of an extended Summer.

The results from the survey (so far): Die Valkure took first (again) this year with George II taking a close second, then the Stout and finally the Oktoplasm (which I happen to be drinking right now).

Thank you to all of those who made the day such awesome fun!  Next Saturday is the 8th Annual New England Regional Homebrew Competition and all four of our brews are entered, so hopefully, I'll be blogging about one (or more (or FOUR!)) of those next weekend!

Until Then,

Oktoplasm and Die Valkure

October looms in the near future fraught with the bitter gusts from the north and lightless days.

Bev-toberfest is the shining light at the end of this sullen path toward winter.

For it we have made a special Octoberfest Ale that we call "Oktoplasm", and the crisp and cold "Die Valkure" that mocks this autumnal temperature anomaly.

That makes 4 kegs for October: The Stout, George II, Oktoplasm, and Die Valkure.

In addition, we have discovered the fiscally responsible 55lbs sack of grains and a Banjo Burner!  Can't wait to tap into them!

See you in October!

The King is dead, long live the King!

George I, in this younger days, was a powerhouse, strong in head and body, and he wreaked of the colonial forests.  George II shall walk but a half a furlong from his shadow and make his own mark in L'histoire du bier.

We set out to create a smoked cherry-wood ale that is smoother and more intelligent than its predecessor that starts with the crispness of a Czech pilsner, carries with earthy overtones and finishes with the aroma of home-grown hops (grown right here at the Bev'!).

Raised from the Basement

While the March Hare was a complete 7.62% success... and it left everyone raving and drooling and mad as a ... I don't know... mad as a something, the real treat this weekend was when someone raised a bottle of Lit Bier and a bottle of Red from the basement after 2 years.  They were smooth and tasty and now the are in Beer Heaven.

I can't help but chuckle at the irony of all this.
