  • De Maas
  • Rutherford B. Haze
  • Wet Frank: 25 gallons remain!

Buffalo Beer Week: The beer

Buffalo Beer Week draws close: it’s September 25-October 51! We’ve already covered what events we’ll be doing: now how about the beer?

Pearl Street’s Chris with Rudy and Drew

  • PCP: The Porter Collaboration Project, brewed with Pearl Street with coffee from public
  • The IPA amped up with Citra: as Rudy describes it, “Same beer. More hops.”
  • Singularity (Calypso): the triumphant return of our single hop IPA series
  • The Snow (2013): What, you think we don’t cellar things? We cellar things.

And another thing or two as well, but I think that’s enough for now…

Other things we’re up to

  • public espresso challenged The Whale to take the ice bucket challenge. We accepted:
  • 33 Beers: I’ve been scribbling down characteristics of the beer I’ve been drinking, and have filled up my first notebook
  • Remember last week when I said progress was being made on Hydraulic Hearth? The equipment arrived yesterday!
  • I guess somebody bought the Bills this week, or something? Blue Monk’s Mike Shatzel shared pints of Frank with Mr. Pegula last summer and posted the picture in celebration!
