New Markets: Mississippi

Hi there,

We are happy to announce that we are heading south to the great state of Mississippi! Remarkably, this completes our statewide coverage of the Southern region of the U.S. and, with our recent announce that we are heading to Delaware, this means we are everywhere east of the Mississippi River. Not bad!

So, Should I Cellar This Beer?

A few thoughts on cellaring our beer, from our Brewmaster, Jeremy Kosmicki:

One of the most common questions I’m asked is “should I cellar this particular beer and if so, for how long?” “Cellaring” is the act of storing a beer in ideal conditions for an extended period of time, with the hope that the flavor of the beer will actually improve.  Ideal conditions would include a controlled temperature, somewhere in the 50-60 degree Fahrenheit range.  We’ve found that storage temperature has a huge impact on how well the beer maintains its freshness.  Refrigeration greatly slows down the aging process, while beer stored at room temp or above will accelerate the effects of aging.  And what are those effects of aging?  Generally, aged beers experience a decrease in bitterness and the fruity and floral esters created by the hops.  Other flavors, however, tend to increase with age, such as a vinous character (sherry or stale fruit), wet paper/cardboard, and a caramel or toffee sweetness.  Oxidation is primarily responsible for these changes in flavor.

Azacca IPA Brined Chicken with Mango Panzanella

Our Culinary Director, Justin, is at it again with his latest recipe featuring beer from our lineup: Azacca IPA-brined chicken breasts with mango and goat cheese panzanella.

From the chef himself:

“This one’s for all you spring chickens out there. I love how the citrus and tropical flavors from the beer work with the mild flavor of the chicken. Taking the time to brine the meat imparts tons of flavor and, conveniently, allows some time for a nap before you start cooking.”
