Queens pride was flowing (along with many a SingleCut brew as we were on tap – natch!) at Forest Hills Stadium for the awesome return of The Replacements to NYC. Paul, Tommy and Co sounded awesome. Rock lives! – Rulpsen
For those of you who aren’t up on what’s au courant in the hop world, “Sorachi Ace” is a Japanese hop that has a lemon and soft dill quality. “Dry-hopping” means we added that hop to the beer post-fermentation providing aroma and some flavor as well. We found it was a great compliment to the spices in Jån – Rulpsen
Inspiration struck this week while we were brewing “NEIL”, a black IPA. It occurred to us that if you’re going to plumb the depths of darkness, trucking off into outer space is a worthy exploration. Outer space stuff is cool as heck!
So we bring you “NEIL – INTO THE VOID IPA”. It should lift off, er… be on tap the first week of October. – Rulpsen
Our buddy Richard Christy has started a new show “Big Meals Small Places” SHOW LINK with Sal Governale and the next episode will be taped at our Astoria Worldwide Headquarters this Friday. FYI should you see camera crews while hanging in the Tap Room – Rulpsen
Dave just aired an episode of his “NYC $9.99 Show” LINK which focused on the happenin’ stuff happenin’ in Astoria/LIC. That was all well and good, but our favorite part was this email we received after the episode aired:
“We were watching NYC $9.99 this week where your brewery was highlighted. We visited yesterday from NJ and we were not disappointed! We sampled several beers as well as enjoyed several more! My German spouse, as you can imagine, is a real beer snob (affectionately said); for him to say your 19-33 is as close to a German lager as he has had in the US says a lot. We will visit again soon!”
Thanks so much Dave and Melinda! – Rulpsen
