14TH STAR BREWING COMPANY

Ægir’s Influence [Nectar of the Gods Series] – The Norse God Ægir [eye-jeer] brewed beer for the Gods of Asgard. Touched by the hand of Ægir, Ægir’s Influence is a delicious concoction of black malts, flaked oats, and Vermont maple syrup. Flavor of dark fruit, sweet chocolate, maple, and almonds. Skål! 2015 vintage. Inside Info: Accidentally brewed this when attempting to brew MBS on the production system. Ended up with 15bbl of wort instead of the intended 30bbl. Decided to roll with it, thus is a “Nectar of the Gods Series” as the beer Gods wanted us to brew this. We ended up adding additional maple syrup, and did not add coffee. Really interesting flavor characteristics on this one. 8% ABV

Naked Maple Ale [Maple City Series] – MAPLE MAPLE MAPLE! This smoked maple ale gets maple added at every possible stage. Brewed exclusively with maple sap (instead of water), maple syrup in the boil, and maple­wood smoked malt in the mash. Smoky up front, leads to a biscuity malt flavor, and then maple sweetness with a touch of alcohol. Welcome to Maple City! 7% ABV

Raspberry Vermonter Weiss – We brew our Vermonter Weiss with malt and hops grown right here in Vermont, then we add raspberry puree to impart a bright fruit flavor and huge aroma of fresh raspberries in every sip of this beautiful deep pink beer. We love to support local Vermont business and agriculture every chance we get. Our Vermonter Weiss is brewed with Vermont ingredients – including barley and wheat from Peterson Quality Malt in Monkton, hops from Homestead Hops in Straksboro, and raspberries from Spirit Ledge Farms in Georgia, VT. Cheers! 3.8% ABV

Red Wine Barrel Aged Vermonter Weiss – For almost a full year this sour German-style wheat ale has been resting in a Red Wine Barrel – pulling from the wood notes of blueberry, honey, citrus zest, and floral wine-like characters. Aged in select Wine Barrels from our friends at Due North Vineyard and Winery. Kettle-soured with Green Mountain Yogurt [as is all of our kettle sours]. 3.4% ABV

ALLAGASH BREWING COMPANY

Beervana 10th Anniversary Blend – A multi-layered ale brewed with sauvignon blanc must and fermented in chardonnay barrels. Defined by its balanced and complex notes of pear, citrus, and tart grape.

Coolship Red – This blend of spontaneously fermented beer is aged on local raspberries. We begin brewing Coolship Red with Pilsner malt, 40% raw wheat, and aged whole-leaf hops. The unfermented wort is then transferred to a large shallow pan called a coolship, which allows the hot wort to mingle with wild yeast and souring microflora in the Maine air. After fermenting and aging in French oak wine barrels for over two years, we add raspberries and let it rest for an additional four to five months. The finished beer is bright red in color with an aroma of raspberry and oak. Its raspberry-forward flavor is balanced by notes of light funk, apricot, and a tart, dry finish. 6.7% ABV

Strictivus – A wheat beer that we age on a blend of locally-sourced fruits. Right after we pulled a batch of Pick Your Own (a tart, wild ale) of off these fruits – cherries, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries – we filled the tank back up with Strictivus. With only around a month of aging, the beer is transformed. To its already spicy and citrusy notes, the fruit adds a variety of tart berry flavors. In the end, Strictivus finds a delicate, and drinkable, balance between sour and sweet. 5.3% ABV

Farm To Face – Drinking this medium-bodied beer is like biting into a juicy, yet tart, peach. Farm to Face is brewed as a pale ale and then fermented for ten months in stainless tanks with house yeast.

Pints for PKD on Sunday [9.16]

We’re sharing this info about a great event for a great cause:

Pints for PKD, the second annual gathering to support the Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) Foundation, will be held at Buttonwoods Brewery [530 Wellington Ave, Cranston] on Sunday, September 16, from 12-3 pm.

Raise your glasses with us in support of polycystic kidney disease awareness, research, and the search for a cure! Hosted by The Marshall Family with the generous support of Buttonwoods Brewery and the Rhode Island Brewing Society, this year’s event hopes to build on and continue the success of last year, that helped raise over $3,300 in support of the PKD Foundation.

This year features the special release of Positive Impact, a rye saison brewed with brett and wine must, created exclusively for the event by Buttonwoods Brewery and last year’s grand prize raffle winner! This is a non-ticketed event but donations will be welcome and accepted at the door. [Donations are also welcome at any time at the #TeamPKD site.]

Check the event Facebook page for updates re: raffles, swag, and other enticements.

[For those wondering how a homebrew club came about developing a fundraiser in support of Polycystic Kidney Disease….meet Jameson Marshall! Suspected PKD was discovered for Jameson in utero. He just celebrated his first birthday and is doing great — he’s a big and strong little guy who still boasts perfect kidney function — but it is a disease that he will battle with for his entire life. His father Jim has been a regular RIBS member since its early days, and it is obviously a cause that is very close to his family’s hearts. When Jim suggested the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation as the beneficiary for this fundraising event and shared his family’s story, RIBS was honored to be able show its support!]
