Craft Beer News Roundup: Troegs, Stone Brewing, Upright Brewing and Founders KBS
Troegs – FOR TRADE: SPLINTER BLACK AND GOOD KARMA A set of hi-hat cymbals was “borrowed” from Troegs Brewery sometime over the weekend of January 28. These cymbals belonged to our grandfather have sentimental value far greater than their monetary value. We will ask no questions upon their return and will offer the returnee two bottles of SPLINTER BLACK and a healthy dose of good karma. Thanks for your help. Cheers – Chris & John Trogner Editors note: That’s fucking low. I’d break the Splinter Black over there heads.
Stone Brewing – An unconfirmed rumor from over at RateBeer – Jeremy fromStone was in town a couple of weeks ago to brew a beer with our local brewery NOLA( New Orleans Lagers& Ales) . The beer will be an imperial porter with local satsuma orange peels and Steens molasses . It will be called “Pour me Somethin’ Mistah!” and will be released during Mardi Gras. It’s my understanding that it will be draft only and very small batch (200 slim kegs) I’m not sure where it will be distributed beyond La ….with that small amount it probably won’t get to that many places.
Upright Brewing – “Fantasia all sold out but we still have Fatali Four, Rose City Seven and Billy the Mountain bottles! Look for limited amounts of Fantasia at your local bottleshops though! Editor’s note “Ah ha, it’s on some shelves!”
Founders – The Return of KBS – “Again, bottles will be available on a first come, first served basis and are To-Go only, and not for on-site consumption. KBS will be available on draft in the Taproom as well, while supplies last. And like all of our specialty products, KBS is not available in growlers. While we fully expect a line for case & bottle sales, we make no recommendations or guarantees as to when the line will begin, so please plan accordingly. The line will begin at the rear entrance to the Taproom where signage will be posted.” Follow this link for even more info including case pricing and such.
