Brewing this week… so far Three Lions Ale, Ironman Pale Ale and Blonde Ale are all in fermenting vessel. Today we’re brewing the Summer Light Ale and tomorrow it’s going to be the Irish Red … busy week.
New on the Brewer’s Choice hand pump is the Nut Brown Ale infused with 6 oz. of raw organic cacao nibs. The cacao gives a slight hint of chocolate upfront which fades into the malt body with a little chocolate in the nose as well.
Look out for the regular Nut Brown Ale on cask soon at Frisco Grille and Metropolitan Coffee House (Federal Hill). Coming soon to the hand pumps of Max’s Taphouse, Fells Point will be our Best Bitter, Dark Mild and Vanilla Porter. Also look out for us on tap at The Parkside and Racers Cafe (both on the Harford Road).
For the homebrewer’s out there, Olivers/Pratt Street Ale House will be running a homebrew competition to coincide with Baltimore Beer Week. We’re inviting submissions from homebrewers during the first week of September. You can brew any style you like but remember this, it must be something that we can replicate at our brewery using our English (Ringwood) Ale Yeast and must be a beer that will be commercially viable (ie we need to sell 7 barrels of it!). Judging will be simple, we will taste all offerings and decide which one will be the best fit with the other ales we have on offer. The winner will be invited to the brewery to oversee the brewing process and the winning beer will debut at the Oliver stand at the BAM Oktoberfest at the Timonium Fairgrounds (October 10th), will be on tap at The Pratt Street Ale House throughout Baltimore Beer Week and will be offered on cask at The Chesapeake Real Ale Festival (October 17th). Good luck. E-mail me with comments or for further details.
