Greetings my friends.
Happy New Year from us all at Grand Teton Brewing.
We had a wonderful year in 2014. We brewed some great beers, won some awards, started to develop a new year round beer; an IPA! (You can read more about that in this month’s edition of Idaho Brew Magazine), and we managed to triple the size of our wood barrel program.
So 2014 has come and gone, what is next for the GT Brew Crew? Well I will tell you.
We started off 2015 right by bottling a small run of this spring’s Cellar Reserve; 5 O’Clock Shadow Double Black Lager. Delicious. Look for that on shelves mid-February (I’ll post more about that beer as we get ready to release it). We also brewed our 4th version of Grand Teton IPA. IPA #2 has gotten some great reviews, but it is almost done, so be sure to swing by the pub for IPA #3 early next week which features all Idaho ingredients and some fun new Hops. One beer that I am particularly excited to drink is this summer’s Cellar Reserve: The Sour Grand Saison. I’ve got big plans for this beer but right now we are fermenting part 1 of a three part brew. The first part is an all Brettanomyces fermentation. It is going to be delicious.
As I mentioned above, we tripled our Wood Aging program. I brought in some Rum barrels, and a lot more wine barrels. I want to dedicate a post entirely to the wood program and where it is heading this year, so I won’t spoil anything here so stay tuned!
Just a little teaser update for you all, stay tuned for more!
Until then, Happy Drinking!
