WILK Friday BeerBuzz–4 May 2012 Weyerbacher Seventeen w/Chris Wilson

WILKFridayBerbuzz8Back in May of 2010 we quietly launched our very first every WILK Friday BeerBuzz show.  I remember my emotions for that show being somewhere between excitement and complete fear.  Jump ahead 2 years later, and I can’t believe we’re celebrating our 2nd Year Anniversary.

Last year for our 1-year anniversary, we invited Chris Wilson from Weyerbacher Brewing up to celebrate our anniversary with us.  Chris brought up some Weyerbacher 16 and our pal Theresa Duffy brought even more great Weyerbacher beer to celebrate at our Krugel’s tasting party.  Since everyone had such a great time, we thought why not make it a tradition, and do it all again w/Weyerbacher….and of course there’s a BIG PARTY TONIGHT!

With Chris out in San Diego for the Craft Brewers Conference, we were lucky enough to get Bobby Clark to join us and bring up a really special beer.  This beer is so new, it doesn’t even have a name so we’re simply calling it Weyerbacher Sour Black.  This new brew is a black Belgian-style sour that’s been aging for close to a year in the former Rapture Pinot Noir barrels and the flavor is amazing.  Sour Black has a rich color and a bold sour flavor.  You can really taste the influence the wine barrels had on it with a vinous background, a little oak and a wonderful sour flavor.  I’ll be excited to see this one released and can’t wait to hear the name.

It was also cool to talk to Bobby about the development & use of the new Weyerbacher logo & the brewery expansion.  (We brought you a peek at the new logo back in Feb)

My thanks to Bobby Clark for making the ride up to be on our show AND to stay for tonight’s special Weyerbacher tasting event 

Remember to come out tonight (May 4th) from 5-7PM @ Krugel’s Georgetown Deli, next to the Big Cow on Rt 309 in Wilkes-Barre Twp. to celebrate the 2-Year Anniversary of the Friday BeerBuzz on WILK. We’ll have Bobby Clark from Weyerbacher on hand with a sampling of their great brews and the entire WILK Friday BeerBuzz crew will be there to talk beer. This event is open to all (must be 21 or older to sample beer) so be sure to bring a friend and stop by!

Thanks

to Bobby Clark from Weyerbacher, Nancy, John, & Joe for yet another fun Friday.

The Friday BeerBuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
