Public Launch Party
We're extremely pleased to announce that this Friday, September 30th, we'll be launching Temperance Brewing Co-op's very first beer to the public. We rolled out the beer at a members-only launch party a couple of weeks ago and everyone was very excited about how the beer came out. Paddock Wood did a fantastic job with our recipe, and we can't wait to share it with everyone.
About The Beer
The beer came out slightly differently than planned. Since this is the first time the recipe has been brewed on a large scale like this, it's not altogether surprising. Long story short, we ended up with a beer that's closer to an IPA than a West Coast Pale Ale. The two styles are extremely similar, so we're not far off. This first batch was just a little more intense than anticipated. Next time we brew the recipe we'll be able to adjust and get on-point with style. It's all part of the process.
Some words on the beer itself: It's exactly as hoppy as you would expect a West Coast IPA to be, bringing together ample measures of Centennial and Cascade hops that impart a pleasant, citrusy bitterness to your palate. What sets this beer apart from other IPAs is the malt profile. This thing has malts for days. The caramel and molasses flavours form a formidable backbone that cannot be ignored. Our West Coast IPA is a beautifully balanced yet assertive beer that will satisfy all who demand beer with a robust character
Our Next Brew
We had so much fun putting together this first brew, we decided we'd do it again. We've opened it up to our membership to vote on what our next beer is going to be. They'll be choosing between a Brown Ale, a Blonde Ale, an Irish Red Ale, and a Stout. The poll will stay open for a couple of weeks, so stay tuned for out outcome of the vote. Remember, if you're not a member but want to get involved, you can head over to the membership page, sign up, and get involved in our growing co-op!
Members can click here to cast their vote. Polls close on Friday, October 14th, 2016.
That's all for now, we hope to see you all at the public launch party this Friday at Winston's Pub! Members of the board will be there starting around 6pm.
