Weyerbacher - Dec News

WeyerbacherBlueLogoPay special attention to Bob Fauteux’s note!!

From Dan & Chris:

Visitor Center Holiday Hours:
Since Christmas falls on Saturday this year, our store will not be open before or during Christmas day. For New Years, we’ll open up Thursday, December 30th from 4 to 7 pm so you can pick up some brew for the party. We will also be open on Saturday, New Years Day from noon to 3. So come in and toast the New Year with us!

Of course, we're open all of the other Saturdays from noon to 3. Be sure to stop by this month and pick up some beer for your friends and some cool shirts and gifts as well.

Head Brewer Chris Wilson:
For those that have been cooped up inside for the last week, it's cold outside! It's time to break out some tasty beverages that will help you through the cold weather. You should already be seeing Winter Ale and QUAD on the shelves of your local beer store. Fifteen is out there as well. It is a great winter beer. Now would be a good time to get those while they last.

We will be brewing Fireside Ale this week for release in January. It is a nice malty brew that is brewed with a touch of smoked malt for an extra layer of complexity. It is the perfect complement to a rocking chair and a roaring fire. We are also brewing Old Heathen and Blithering Idiot for Heresy and Insanity for February release. We have added another fermenter to help alleviate the inventory issues and we have already ordered 2 more for 2011 (just the beginning). Well I’ve got to get back to work and make all this beer!

Happy Holidays!


Sales Manager Bob Fauteux:
Weyerbacher brews the house IPA, Big Ern's IPA, for the Pizzeria Uno chain of restaurants. Try it at Uno's Chicago Grille at these locations in New Jersey - Hamilton, Maple Shade and Deptford. In Pennsylvania check out these locations - Langhorne, Neshaminy, Warrington, Montgomeryville, Exton and Newtown Square.

A project that started early this year and came to fruition with Philadelphia Beer Week 2010. Weyerbacher and Uno’s (The Bock Group) teamed up to develop Big Ern’s IPA, which is only available at the above mentioned stores. Big Ern's is a 5.9% India Pale Ale with a very smooth, citrusy finish. If you're in the neighborhood of any one of their restaurant locations, be sure to stop in to try Big Ern's or any of the other Weyerbacher selections on tap! Don't just stop in for the beer, stick around for dinner from Uno's ever changing menu featuring deep dish pizza and much more. My favorite is still their deep dish with sausage. Have a great holiday and enjoy great beer!

Founder Dan Weirback:
2010 has been a fantastic year for our brewery. Sales growth of 20%, some more new equipment and a growing list of fans and supporters. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your business. 2011 will see us continue to expand our fermentation cellar and our selection of beers as well.

To you and yours, we raise a glass of Merry Monks' Ale and toast you. We wish you the best holiday season ever. Cheers!

Dan & Crew
