The brand spanking new keg washer is now installed and this makes it easier for us to wash the 50's & 19 liter kegs at pretty much any time during the week. This is especially good news for those who have their own home draft systems and sankey kegs, because the turn around on their keg fills will be cut almost in half - depending on if we have their chosen beer ready to go.
We ended up hiring two people from this last round of interviews. Always good to have new blood in the brewery to keep things interesting!
Saison De La Ceinture Flechee - We're down to the last few boxes of Saison at the brewery, and it's drinking really good right now. Thankfully good saison's age well and the Ceinture is a tasty one!
The Trinity Series- As many of you have guessed from the shot of the packaging we put out on Twitter, The Trinity Series makes it's triumphant return after a 6 year absence. The beers have gone thru the traditional yeast harvesting techniques unique to the series. Initially the yeast comes from two different Belgian monasteries with long histories of producing beer. It is then cultured up in The Father, harvested to brew The Son, and harvested from The Son to brew The Holy Spirit. We'll be releasing the beers in a mixed 6 pack format on May 16th, 2015 at the brewery and into the LC's the week after.
The Holy Spirit - our Witbier and the third member of the Trinity 6 pack will be available in growler format starting on April 30, 2015 at the brewery.
The Trinity Chalice - Special beers require a special glass, and nothing fits the Trinity brews better than our golden chalice, specifically chosen to highlight the aroma and flavours in these brews. A small production run of them are available at the brewery starting on April 30th, 2015.
Queer Beer - Pride Winnipeg's Queer Beer is already brewed and lagering, awaiting its annual return for the weeks leading up to their events. It has arrived at the brewery, and is currently shipping out to the Liquor Mart's. We'll keg lots of it for the festival site on the weekend of June 13/14 at The Forks. If there happens to be any kegs left at the end of the Pride festivities, we'll make sure to have it on the growler filler shortly thereafter.
Black Galaxy - June(ish) - One of Canada's highest rated Black IPA's will return in June for another run at glory. We'll have an extended run for growlers and bottles so hopefully it lasts longer than a week this time around.
Half Pints/Black Bridge Brewery Collaboration - We've been working on putting together a collaboration with the folks from Black Bridge Brewing in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. You'll see their beers in the Liquor Marts coming soon thru 49th Parallel Distribution, and we've got a brew day planned for May 29th, 2015. This beer will be a draft/growler only specialty with the golden touch.
