Rubicon Brewing surpasses 7 million Pints with Batch 3000
Rubicon Brewing Company Brews Batch 3000!
Sacramento, Ca – The Rubicon Brewing Company proudly announces the release of their 3000th batch of handcrafted beer. This milestone batch is a Double India Pale Ale that has appropriately been named HOP SAUCE.
Hop Sauce is a new recipe for the Rubicon Brewing Company and includes ten different hop varieties: Summit, Columbus, Chinook, Cascade, Vanguard, Glacier, Goldings, Bravo and Sterling. It has been double dry hopped, and ten pounds of New Zealand Mouteka hops were added to the serving tank for the final hoppy touch.
In a time where the shortage of hops is forcing hop prices through the roof and causing most breweries to get creative with their recipes, the Rubicon Brewers, Scott Cramlet and Al Griffin, decided to go over the top and use every hop variety they could get their hands on. The result “…is a great Double IPA with huge flavor and aroma, brewed in true handcrafted Rubicon style,” says Glynn Phillips, owner, Rubicon Brewing Company.
So let’s do the math… if each ten-barrel batch brewed generates 310 gallons, or 2480 pints, and there has been 3000 batches brewed, that means that over the past 21 years, the Rubicon Brewing Company has produced 7,440,000 pints! That is a staggering figure in light of the fact that most microbreweries manage only half that production quantity in a lifetime.
The Rubicon Brewing Company would like to thank their loyal customers for the chance to go this far and still be going strong. The Rubicon is a favorite Midtown Sacramento institution and for over 20 years has provided handcrafted beers and great food, served in a casual, friendly atmosphere. If you haven’t been by yet, or it’s been a while… Go by and try the Hop Sauce or any of their other fine brews, and see for yourself the difference experience can make.
