This week in the brewery

As we're gearing up for graduation weekend we have some exciting things going on in the brewery. On Tuesday we brewed a new stout recipe, Antilles, a tropical stout ( high gravity sweet stout). We loaded over 1000 pounds of malt into the mash tun starting with Maris Otter, then loading it with two varieties of caramel malt,oats,flaked wheat and a special addition of an undisclosed specialty malt.It should come in over 7% with a nice roasted barley character, fruity yeast esters and malt sweetness.

We tapped some reserve kegs of Blasphemous,our 8.1 % sour brown ale, so get this while it lasts.

Lastly a little update for some customers who have asked about bottles, we still have a handful of Anacostia Ale and 10th Anniversary Ale bottles left in the General Store, so first come first serve.
