Craft Beer News Quickies: Midnight Sun, Lost Coast, Eagle Rock, Coronado, and Firestone Walker
Read on for info on Midnight Sun, Lost Coast Brewery, Eagle Rock Brewery, Coronado Brewing and Firestone Walker. Cheers, TFP
Midnight Sun Brewing – “ETA on cans is still fuzzy. Need ship date from can manufacturer then we can project a shelf date. But we’re hoping for first-second week in JUL. :0)”
Lost Coast Brewing – The biggest news right now is the progress of our new brewery. We have a prime spot, about 9 acres of vacant pastureland on the south end of Eureka. The land, however, may sit on some cultural artifacts belonging to the Wiyot Tribe. The Eureka Planning Commission has put a hold on production while it investigates the potential harm. If you read the comments at http://www.times-standard.com/localnews/ci_18253583 you’ll find most people pro-expansion.
Eagle Rock Brewery – “We are working on another batch of Stimulus (our Belgian Amber with coffee) with the Intelligentsia guys, which should be ready in about a month.”
Coronado Brewing – “We can not keep up with beer production and are currently looking for a new facility.” ..”We are shipping beer to England, New Zealand, and Japan in addition to many areas in between.”
Firestone Walker – Firestone Walker or one of their employees posted a picture on Facebook indicating they were souring a batch of Solace. Here is all the info we could gather on that. The beer name is unknown at this point. “Base beer is a close relative to Solace with 35% of the malt bill being made up of Wheat Malts. The bug blend will most likely be Brett/Lactic. The beer is being housed in French Oak Wine Barrels once home to Viognier. Olalliberries were added to specific barrels.
