Weyerbacher - Insanity New Labels


Here is perhaps one of my absolute favorite new logo labels coming from Weyerbacher.  Today we have Insanity ale aged in oak barrels.  Insanity is Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot Barleywine aged in oak barrels and it’s one of my favorites.  Look for Insanity in 12oz bottles and yes it’s big at 11.1% ABV.

Weyerbacher Brewers’ Select Yankee (11/23): 2nd To Last Release Is An Old Ale


I’ve been asking our pal Chris Wilson for over a year now what will happen when Weyerbacher Brewer’s Select series hits “Z” or ZULU, and now I may have my answer.  Details on Yankee bill it as the 2nd to last release in the Brewers’ Select series.  This from Weyerbacher:

The 25th installment – that’d be 2nd to LAST – in the Brewers’ Select Series is Yankee! No, this is not about baseball! For those of you just tuning in, the Brewer’s Select Series follows the NATO alphabet: Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, etc. Yankee is the letter “Y”.

Yankee is an “Old Ale” and as such is expected to cellar quite nicely. Described by some as a ‘baby barleywine’, this beer is an Old Ale, 8.4% ABV with 51 IBU. Yankee is a full-bodied, mahogany ale with an intense malt aroma and flavor. You’ll find caramel, bread and fruit, with a touch of spice and smoke with a warm vinous finish. English East Kent Golding hops balance out this malty treasure!

Happy Holidays!

As with all Brewers’ Select releases, Yankee was bottled in a very small run and will not be made again. Look for Yankee on draft at select finer restaurants and pubs and in bottles exclusively at the Weyerbacher Visitors Center!

Note: Yankee will debut on Black Friday at the Visitors Center. Note: the Visitors Center will be open at NOON on Black Friday (November 23rd) and close at the regular 7:00pm. See you there!

Weyerbacher Riserva 2012

Here’s your very first look at the label redesign for Weyerbacher Riserva 2012.  This ale with Raspberry Puree added & aged in oak barrels will be packaged in 750ml bottles and this is the first Riserva to adopt the new Weyerbacher logo.  Look for a 2013 release.
