Last entry October 5th? Wow. Ok... My little social media foray should be a taken a bit more seriously if there is to be a blog at all. My apologies to anyone who used to tune in.
Much has happened here in the Nantucket brewery since then:
Island Reserve Tripel and Island Reserve Russian Imperial Stout.
The second blending and release of Lady of the Woods. As well as Monomoy Kriek (which just garnered a silver at the World Beer Cup as a Flanders Oud Red).
Two new 25hL foudres aging a new woods release.
Island Reserve Lager; purposefully vague, please evaluate beer by its merit rather than preconceived stylistic notions. Enjoy our oaked lager beginning July 1.
XVII Anniversary beer (yes, Cisco Brewers has been in business since 1995) a 7.7% abv IPL, India Pale Lager, aggressively hopped in the kettle and creatively dry hopped throughout lagering. If any of this beer makes it out of the lagering tank, it's my go-to zwickel, you'll be lucky. Fortunately for islanders it will not be leaving Nantucket, draught only here at the brewery. We'll see you soon, pouring June 15.
Santa Maria Pinquito Beans, epazote, sweet yellow onion, avocado, cilantro, lime, Summer of Lager. Not feeling the cheese these days.
Dancing with life's details keeps us smiling and believing we are blessed.
