Cool(er) Weather, Georgia Football and a 5000 mL Flask?

It’s a bit refreshing to once again be able to walk outside and not instantly be overcome by heat and humidity.  With the hot summer nights coming to an end, the cooler weather brings all of our fall favorites, good home crafted beer, Georgia Football and cookouts! Who could ask for more?

Well to the start the season off right, we decided to go big! After a trip to our local brew store, BrewMasters Warehouse,  We decided to brew an American Style Barley Wine.  With more than 40lbs. of grain this is going to be a monster beer! And, as we all know, monster beers need monster starters so we decided to invest in our very first 5000 mL flask! It worked great for the starter and we are looking forward to brewing tomorrow. If you’re around stop by and say hi!

Its going to be a great year!

Name that Brewery (or our brewery anyways)

I think most of you know by now that we hope to one day soon open a full scale production brewery in Kennesaw. But before we can do that we need a name, a real name that is. One that we can put on the door and on the bottles of beer and on the boxes and the caps and…I think you get the picture.

That’s where you come in. We need your help coming up with a name and we decided that we would throw a little contest to get you motivated. Send us your ideas and If we pick your name we will throw a beer party just for you and your friends. So come on, put on your thinking caps and don’t be scared to send us any and all of the creative BREWERY names you can come up with. Who knows, we just might pick yours.

An Unexpected (well, to me at least) Wednesday Visit

Apologies that this post is a couple days late, I’ve been busy dammit!  But anyway, we had the pleasure of having one of our good friends, Doug,  in town from Cali last Wednesday night. Doug is our west-coast amigo (and, like, one of two people who comment on the blog) who from time to time enjoys a couple of our brews- at least that’s what he tells us!  So, needless to say,  Wednesday evening ended up being a “guerrilla tasting party” when a group of our best buddies converged on the beer cave to see Duggie.  It was truly a good time,and I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did!Doug and SteveDoug tries real hard to pour a beer

Supplementary to the main subject of the post is news on the Rye Pale.  It ended up being just slightly high in FG so, unfortunately it was still a little sweet from the unconverted sugars.  Also, and somewhat oddly, I had kegged and carbonated it as usual and according to our carbonation chart, but for some reason enough CO2 did not absorb into the beer. Pretty frustrating considering the recipe is on the right track and the carbonation level would have made it all the better.  I wonder if the temperature of the beer during the carbonation process made it slower or less effective?

A Wednesday Night Success

Unbelievable turnout last night!! It may have been a record, to tell you the truth we have so many people showing up now it’s hard to keep count. Thanks again for coming by, tasting our beer and offering your support. This is what it’s all about, sharing OUR beer with you and your friends. We ran out last night so try to get here early next time. Remember this is a tasting event to showcase our beers so please save the Bud Light and Vodka for your weekend parties! Thanks again and see you next week!
