I was asked the other day what some of the benefits were of becoming a LegacyMaker. I admitted that we are still working out all the details of the full offering - I mean, we want it to be epic, but one of my favorite benefits are the private events offered ONLY to our LegacyMakers.
Tuesday, we held our second Private Event at the brewery. The invited members were offered a delectable spread provided by local caterer, Hottie Dawgs and desserts by Amaretti Bakery, our neighbor in the Shoppes at Durbin Creek Plaza.
The beers offered at the event included our Project Pilsner - a light pilsner with just enough hop to satisfy the veteran craft beer drinker, but still light and welcoming to the craft newbie. Our Kitchen Sink - Version 2.0 was a single hopped pale ale made with Amarillo hops. This was a hit with the crowd that night. But our biggest hit of the night was our project Stoutweizen…
Project Stoutweizen was an idea that had been brewing (pun intended) in our minds for some time. At our first tasting, we were offering our base Sweet Stout and Beachweizen. A few of our guests were merging the two beers and were commenting on how good it tasted, so we decided to make an official attempt at this new Frankenbeer. The result was a pretty solid pouring of a light bodied Stout with subtle hints of banana and bubblegum. Though we still plan on making a few minor changes to the final recipe, we were delighted at the response this first run beer received!
We showed the guests around the newly demolished space (looks a lot different than last time!) and spoke about the plans for the layout with our newest LegacyMakers. We updated everyone on our plans for opening, which, unfortunately has been pushed to early 2019 due to issues with obtaining our building permit.
We also teamed up with Bruer’s Small Batch Beer Jelly to create a limited release of a beer jelly made with our Kitchen Sink 2.0 Pale Ale! This tasted great on the pulled pork sliders and would definitely take your PB&J game to the next level! We have a limited number of jars still available for purchase here.
Though we will not be open to the public until then, we are looking forward to hosting at least 1 more tasting at the brewery. If you’ve thought about joining the program, now is really the time because effective October 1, we will be adjusting the entry fee to the program up to $100.
