So, now that I never finished the original blog story from March, I thought I'd move on to another entry I won't be able finish.
We have many new beers coming up the pipe, as we have a warehouse full of different flavors, colors, and aromas. Surprisingly, the Grotten Brown has appeared, which was tucked in the warehouse of one of our purveyors. We had this beer on tap for the better part of 8 years, and now it has all but dissappeared. It is/was no longer being made by Pierre Celis, an icon in the brewing industry. You probably have heard of Celis brewing in Texas, well, he was the mastermind behind that operation and eventually sold and returned to Belgium to produce beer for St. Bernard brewery to where he introduced the cave aged ale, Grotten Brown. Also instrumental in brewing the Flemish Red from St. Bernard Brewing. Perhaps, his most memorable acheivement would have to be the construction of Hoegaareden in the 70's. Hoegaarden is still around, even after a devastating fire, they continue to brew their pilot beer, Hoegaarden Wit. Celis Brewing is still around, although bought by Michigan Brewing, they also continue to make Celis White.
Anyway, we have a lot of beers we are going to be introducing and re-introducing into the mix.
I have rat-holed some kegs of beer and will be advertising them at a later date.
I'm going to go make some reservations for the Oregaon Beer Festival...actually, I have all the reservations, including the Sasquatch Brew Am.
More later...............
