Grand Teton Brewing – Coming Home Holiday Ale + Expansion News
Brewed in the Belgian Dubbel tradition, this year’s Coming Home 2013 Holiday Ale is big and bold, yet imminently drinkable. Coming Home 2013 features celebratory flavors of dark sugar, raisins and a spicy, dry finish. It was brewed with pale and brown malts plus special dark candi sugar. The sugar addition provides a sweet aroma and dark fruit flavors without the cloying thickness typical of all-malt brews. Coming Home 2013 was fermented with ale yeast from a Belgian Trappist monastery to add hints of nutmeg, clove and other holiday spices. At 7.5% ABV this is an ale to be savored, enjoyed with friends over a holiday meal or paired with flavorful cheeses.
Coming Home Holiday Ale is available as a one time release November 1 in 750mL bottles and kegs.
Bottling Line Improvements
The bottling line here at Grand Teton Brewing has seen some improvements recently. The addition of a depalletizer has sped up the off-loading of bottles to the line. In the near future, we will begin utilizing a case erector to mechanically build case boxes and a drop packer to mechanically put the full bottles in the case box. These efficiencies should allow us to increase production, bringing you more beer!
We are enjoying this new piece of equipment so much, we created a video testimonial for the manufacturer.
