Ramstein Tour
Here’s a reason to not bitch about the cold winter we’re having:

January’s deep-freeze has allowed High Point Brewing to do a second run of eisbock. Round 2 uses the brewery’s 7% ABV Double Platinum Blonde hefeweizen as the beer handed over to the frigid elements for icing up.

from the tasting room at Rinn Duin Brewing …

The newly licensed brewery did steady business with its brown and Scottish ales Thursday evening, the long-awaited start of public tours and opening of its six-tap tasting room. The evening also marked the release of the English/Irish-style session ales that are the core of Toms River production brewery’s beer lineup.

Devils Reach 12OZ


Cape May Brewing’s big Belgian strong ale leads the brewery’s venture into 12-ounce bottles.

Folks at the brewery did a 90-case run of Devil’s Reach to get their feet wet with the Meheen bottler the brewery picked up last summer on the used equipment market. The 8.4% ABV brew, named for a narrow strait in Cape May Harbor, for now is limited to takeout sales of six-packs at the brewery.

There’s some technical stuff, i.e. check dissolved oxygen levels in the bottled beer, before it’s full speed ahead with the Meheen. (Oxygen, as we know, will turn beer stale and, thus, is a concern when bottling and canning.)

Cape May IPA CMB2Devil’s Reach was bottled early this month, and the brewery’s game plan is to bottle Cape May IPA and Sawyer’s Swap Barleywine later this winter.

The strong ale and barleywine previously have been available in bomber bottles. Cape May IPA, the flagship beer Cape May Brewing launched with during the summer of 2011, previously has been available draft only.
