First, STICKERS! Come get them and put them on stuff! Free. Stick them on your bikes. Stick them on signs. Stick them on other breweries. Just kidding!
Second, can you believe it? Standard Brewing has been around for almost a year! Yeah, me neither. It's been a blast putting this thing together and seeing the community turn it from a crackpot idea into a functional business. To commemorate, we are throwing a party, so mark this in your calendars ... Thursday, March 20th, from noon to 10pm, or whenever the party slows down. We will be releasing a special beer - our Anniversary Ale - a 12% IPA made with Simcoe, Mosaic and Calypso. We will be putting 3 kegs of it on tap, and releasing our first 22 oz bottle format! There will only be 100 bottles. Get one and you can say that you got our first ever Standard bomber release. We will also be hosting our first food truck, and I'll let you know who it is in a bit ...
Third, a little clarification. For those of you who see nothing but the word "wheat" in the Spring Cleaning Wheat IPA, I'd like to point something out. More often than not, when you get a "wheat beer" it is fermented with Hefeweizen yeast. This strain is designed to put off banana and clove notes, and sometimes the style includes a bit of diacetyl (tastes like butter). I understand if you hate this style of beer. Many do. However, the Spring Cleaning Wheat IPA bears nothing in common with a Hefeweizen. The word "clean" should stick in your mind more than "wheat", and you wont find any banana, clove, or butter notes in this beer. It is a very bright, floral IPA. The wheat brings a creaminess and fuller mouth feel to the beer. Be not afraid!
Lastly, those of you who tried to get a men's L or XL tee shirt recently and couldn't, we've got more en route at the moment, and they should be here in the next day or two. That's all, folks!
