Party like it's 1999...

Well 1999+11=2010. The artist formally know as, who now changed his name back to, Prince is still in all of our hearts. Is the decade we are entering called the 10's? Or do we have to add the two thousand and 10's? I'm so confused.

Well, since the blue moon happening tonight, which is changing peoples moods, the beer has to change as well!

The Sierra Celebration has been replaced by our 5 C's IPA! For those of you following the blog that have never had the 5 C's, it is our version of a "west coast" IPA. Citrusy, bold and delicious.

The Winter Rye is gone but is replaced by our Munich Dunkel. This is a beer that Tod though up after visiting Germany a few months back. It is a Dark (Dunkel) German lager. It's one if the few lagers we are able to do, and this one got all the time it needed in cold condition. It has some nice sweet biscuit flavors with a smooth finish of a lager. It pairs so nicely with the Brat-Burger on the new brewers table... Yumm.

And of course the cask changed as well. We just put on a Black Cat stout dry hopped with Bravo. Bravo is a hybrid of Nugget and Zeus, so it has the the flavor intensity of both with a combo of the spicy/pungent aroma of the mother hops.

Happy New Year!



  1. Looking forward to trying the Munich Dunkel... great style when done right. Brewers need to come up with more "C" hops... then we can sail the Seven C's... ;-)

    Oh, btw, the next decade starts in 2011; one more year for this one...


  2. nice ... you have any more holidaze porter available this season?

  3. The Munich Dunkel is the best lager I've ever had. I got everyone at the bar drinking it tonight. Didn't get to try the Scotch Ale, but will be back. I know it's not cost effective, but can you work the Dunkel lager into your regular line-up somehow? Man that thing is good.

  4. Hello,

    Unfortunately the Holidaze porter lasted just through the holiday. So you are going to have to wait for next yea for it.

    MFG, I can’t agree with you more that the Munich Dunkel is drinking amazingly. As you hinted to, because of space and time that beer took to make, we can’t make it year round. I mean it sat in a serving tank for a month to Lager, after fermenting for 6 weeks. But, now that it is in our repertoire we will see if it comes back next winter when we have our slow down.


  5. Hey Tod/Tyler. I know you occasionally get guest beers on tap, would it be possible to get Troegs Nugget Nectar on tap instead of Bigfoot this year? Not even sure if this is possible due to distribution, just an idea. Will be in tomorrow afternoon (probably) for lunch and a growler fill of the lager.
