New beers!

Hey all,

We slid on just in time for St. Paddy's Day the Murphy's Law Red ale.  I changed up the yeast slightly using the  same British yest used in the dirty blonde to bringing the beer closer to the traditional "Irish Red" people aer expecting on St. Paddy's Day.  While we are talking about the Dirty Blonde I want to mentioned that we went tough a lot more of it than normal over the weekend.  I thought you guys would be into the stout for St. Paddy's day?  But we have just transferred the Portsmouth Pale Ale to take over that tap line this morning.  Another small change that we did on Sunday was putting on a aged keg of Smuttynose Scotch Ale.  We only had one keg and there is about 1/3 of it left as of this morning so who knows how long it is going to last.

Hope you all had a great St. Patty's Day and I know the snow storm is looming over most of your minds at the moment.  As they say March is in like a lion and out like a this should be the last of the lion part of it!

We keep on shuffling...

Hey all,

So we have been whipping up new beers here with some regular frequency.  The push for collaborations brews for the Portsmouth Craft Beer week really got our creative juices flowing here in the Brewery.  So I hope you guys are enjoying the changes of the beers that you have known and loved and the new beers that have started hitting the taps. 

The newest beer we have in fermentation was a colab brew with Charlie Ireland from Smuttynose.  We did a Pineapple Sage Saison that is going to be super light in body and extremely drinkable.  Looking into researching some names i found that Sebago just released a Saison that they brewed with Pineapple Sage.  But after reading the description our version is going to be quite different.  I loved their name using the Latin Root of Pineapple Sage.  But it just points out the big question is that i don't have a name for our Pineapple Sage Saison. 

Any suggestions?
