Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA Released Today


Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA

In celebrating their 17th anniversary, Escondido, CA’s Stone Brewing Co. has released their Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA. While we can’t pronounce it, we can tell you what it is. Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA is a double IPA, brewed with malts and hops traditionally used in German pilsners. According to the press release, Stone’s Brewmaster Mitch Steele “has always been a fan of German beers, and proposed a West Coast-style double/triple IPA with German hop and malt characteristics for this year’s Stone Anniversary Ale.”

Why “Götterdämmerung”? “Occasionally referred to as a disastrous conclusion of events, the name was chosen because Stone wanted to take West Coast IPA sensibilities and combine them with German ingredients. By unceremoniously mashing together one of the most traditional beer styles with one of the newest, Stone created a beer that well, may be the end (or perhaps the extension) of everything we thought we knew when it came to the range of uses for German hop varieties.”

Name: Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA
Stats: 9.5% ABV, 102 IBUs
Availability: Limited 22-ounce bottles and draft, beginning August 12
Hops bill: Magnum, Herkules, Merkur, Opal, Emerald (aka Smaragd), Strisselspalt, German Hersbrucker, Sterling
Distribution: AK, AL, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, VT, and WA

Appearance: Pours deep gold and brilliantly crystal clear with an off-white colored head.
Aroma: Focused on hoppy, with herbal and stone fruit hop aromatics.
Taste: European hops—herbal, floral, spicy, peppery and resiny, balanced by very clean, intensely bitter, beautiful subtle malt flavors, and just a hint of alcohol.
Palate: Crisp and bitter. A very refreshing beer; well suited for the summer!

Redhook Brewery and Hilliard’s Beer Team Up for Joint Effort Hemp Ale


Redhook Joint Effort Hemp Ale

We can’t make this stuff up, but it’s true! Two Washington craft breweries, Redhook Brewery and Hilliard’s Beer, have collaborated to create Joint Effort Hemp Ale as a celebration of “the legalization of marijuana in Washington State.”

The beer, Joint Effort, is a session ale brewed with hemp seeds. The pun-laced press release describes it as “Dry-hopped with Zeus, Cascade, Summit hops, Joint Effort has a dank, resinous hop aroma balanced by nutty, earthiness from hemp seeds. It’s the perfect brew for hanging with your buds, grabbing some munchies and enjoying a beer. ABV 5.6%, IBU 25.”

Of course, just leaving at that would be mundane. Oh yes, the tap handle is most creatively shaped like a bright yellow bong.

“We’re really excited to release Joint Effort with Redhook because we have a lot of respect for how they helped shape craft beer in Washington,” said Hilliard’s Beer co-founder Ryan Hilliard. “It’s the first collaboration beer either of us has done with another brewery and it’s fitting they started in Ballard a few blocks from where we are. Voting to legalize marijuana use in Washington is another example of the pioneering spirit that makes this state so great.”

Joint Effort has been available on draught only since July 15th and will launch in 22oz bottles under the Blueline Series in late October. The beer will be available in Washington State only.

Beverage Kickstarter Spotlight: Geek Out Geek Bar


Here at Mutineer HQ, we are all about cheering on beverage entrepreneurs and their efforts to bring something new to the table. Kickstarter is a great resource for people to bring their ideas to life. One project I dig right now is from Geek Out Geek Bar out of Chicago, Il.

I’ll admit it, I am an RPG playing, Tolkien loving, Doctor Who obsessed geek. Midnight Lord of the Rings extended version movie marathon? Yes, please! So, when I found the Geek Out Geek Bar project on Kickstarter I knew I had to share it here.

This project is about creating a space where geeks can roll 40 sided dice in comfort and read menus by the light of a sonic screwdriver, all while eating incredible food and drinking fine beverage. If you’re interested in supporting this campaign check out the project here.

It would seem that Tales of the Cocktail competition champion Jacob Grier of Portland’s Metrovino is at it again.

The project is called “Cocktails on Tap” and it is a book comprised of historical, regional, and original beer cocktail recipes. See the full post »

Homebrewing Legal In All 50 States!


American Homebrewers Association

Today marks the first time since Prohibition that homebrewing has been legal in all 50 states. It’s hard to believe that all of this time it has been illegal to produce your own beer at home in Alabama and Mississippi, but thankfully that has recently changed. Below is the press release from the American Homebrewers Association:

Today, homebrewers can legally brew in every state in the country, as recently passed homebrewing legislation takes effect in Mississippi, according to the American Homebrewers Association (AHA).

Homebrewing was federally legalized in 1978 for the first time since Prohibition made it illegal in 1919. However, regulation of alcohol is predominantly left to the states. In 2013, Mississippi and Alabama—the last two states remaining with laws against homebrewing—passed legislation to permit beer brewing at home. Alabama’s law went into effect immediately after the Governor signed the bill on May 9. See the full post »

Beverage is Everywhere: Hillsboro Hops


Hillsboro Hops

If we look, we can find beverages or beverage related things all around us in our daily lives… even baseball! Sure, people drink during games, and even the Milwaukee Brewers were named to pay tribute to Milwaukee’s illustrious brewing heritage.

But last week, the Hillsboro Hops in Hillsboro, Oregon played their first game as a newly named and formed baseball team. The Hops, a Class A Short-Season team and an affiliate for the Arizona Diamondbacks, were named after hops, a primary ingredient in the production of beer. Oregon produces the second most hops in the United States, following Washington, and has the second most breweries per capita in the US. No other professional or collegiate sports team has ever been named after the lupulin-packed flowers
