Upcoming Beers and Other Updates
Things have been rolling along nicely at Yonkers Brewing Co. the past couple of months. We kicked off our weekly trivia nights with Geeks Who Drink (every Wednesday starting at 7:30pm) and had our yearly 4th of July cookout earlier this week, which included pulled pork, burgers, dogs, cilantro corn and grilled chicken. We have also been hard at work on a couple new brewskis that I am excited to share with you:
- Hoppy Belgo, 7.6%: A dry-hopped Belgian style amber ale that has a subtle fruity-spicy character and light, spicy nose thanks to the Belgian yeast. It has a slightly malty-sweet flavor and dry finish, complimented by the late addition of New World hops.
- 1008 Pale Ale, 5.4% abv: A session pale ale using German ale yeast and Belma hops. The beer finishes clean like our Kolsch, but has a distinct lemony aroma and slightly bitter but refreshing flavor.
- Rauchweizen, 4.6% abv: A German-style wheat beer brewed with Cherry Wood-smoked malt. The prominent-but-delicate smokiness intermingles with slightly sweet banana and clove notes to make a complex brew. Light in alcohol content and mouthfeel, this beer packs a flavorful punch while being refreshing and drinkable during the warm summer months.
- Cocktail.FROOT, 4.5% abv: A collaboration with Beer Noggin in Bronxville, we took a crack at a true kettle sour, letting the lactobacillus sit on our Saison base beer for two whole days. After we transferred it the fermentation tank, we added six different kinds of fruit (top secret ;), sorry). The resulting flavor is reminiscent of a sour version of a dole fruit cup. Nostalgia, here we come.
We also have a couple nice summer beers returning to the taps in Petit Saison and Blood Orange Wit. Naked Flock Hard Cider will also be on as a guest tap for a few weeks.
Other than that, Bottle Share is next Tuesday, July 12th and our paring this month is Beer & Tacos (July 27).
Thanks for reading!
