Here’s an update from the Brothers Brau.
Just wanted to drop a line and let everyone know whats going on at the brewery.
First, thanks for the great response to MooJoos and Bancreagie! And thanks for being patient. We’re in the process of ramping up production in order to maximize our capacity. We hope to never catch up, but we also hope to make more beer in the near future. Our next seasonal has taken up quite a bit of our capacity. It’s very different than anything we’ve brewed in the passed, and we’re really excited to introduce and drink it. The bulk has been brewed, but it will need a few weeks bottle-conditioning. Details to follow soon.
Couple of events coming up that we’re excited about: Tomorrow night (Thursday March 24) I’ll be up in Minneapolis drinking beer with my TC friends at Common Roots. If you’ve never been there, I highly recommend it! This is as good a reason as any to check it out. I should be set up and pouring about 7pm and I’ll be bringing some special beers, Rubus Black Blackberry Imperial Porter, MooJoos Oatmeal Milk Stout, Sheephead Ale, and a quarter barrel (the only one that will make it to the cities!) of Brau Bros’ Imperial Black Ale. These guys really support local breweries, and it’s much appreciated.
Also, on Saturday Night I’ll be up at McCann’s in St. Cloud for March Mashness, put on by the Cloudy Town Brewers. A lot of St.Cloud homebrewers have made the trek out to Lucan to tour the brewery, and I’m looking forward to returning the favor. Yours truly will be the guest speaker, and it’s always a blast to talk shop with homebrewers, so stop out and enjoy some of Chris’s terrific brews.
We’re doing our best to keep the brewery from floating away. Hopefully things will dry up soon so we can begin work in the hopyard. Remember, hop shoots should be up very soon!!
Take care, and thanks for supporting the brewery
