Just a quick update from production, for those of you who like looking forward to what's next...
Thursday, May 9, 2013
2013 Farmhouse Ale (~8.7%), our next Big Beers Series release, begins shipping the week of Memorial Day, so it'll likely hit shelves and taps in early June. We've tweaked the recipe this year with an addition of sage.
Next up, in early or mid June will be another 30 barrels of Durty (~9%) the hoppy, brown ale from our Short Batch Series. This time around, all the flavor hop additions will be made with Falconer's Flight, a unique hop blend from HopUnion which includes Citra, Simcoe, Sorachi Ace and a few proprietary and experimental varieties. Like the rest of our Short Batch releases, bottling will be very limited, with the bulk of bottles being available at Smuttynose. We don't have an exact release date yet, so stay tuned to Facebook and Twitter for updates.
Vunderbar Pilsner six packs and kegs are shipping now and Summer Weizen should be in all markets. If you can't find them at your local beer store, ask for them!
Finally, we're happy to show off our new Big Beer Series glassware. It holds a full pint and the artwork would be perfect for your bicep, if you want a sweet armband tattoo (let us know if you actually get one). You can get them at Smuttynose right now, though they'll soon be in the retail store at Portsmouth Brewery. MSRP, $6.
