1933 Hoppy Pils is on its way!

Last week the brewers at GNBC got underway with the brewing of the 1933 Hoppy Pils as part of the Summer 2016 Weathervane Seasonal special releases. 1933 is set to go on sale in the Draught House June 9th!

The year is 1933, and the National Park Service has just dedicated the Going to the Sun highway in Glacier. End to end, the road spans 53 miles and climbs to Logan Pass at nearly 6,700 feet. From the road, visitors can view some of the cleanest and brightest natural wonders in the world! To celebrate this monumental feet of engineering, we brewed this incredibly bright and clean pilsner, hopped in the tradition of American-style ales.

With over a thousand pounds of Pilsner malt added by hand, this Hoppy Pils is sure to remind you of the Pilsners of old. Chinook, German Cascade & Sorachi Ace hops are added at various points of the brew to give this traditional style a modern twist.

Crisp and clean like you'd expect from a Pilsner Lager but hopped more like a modern American Pale Ale, the 1933 Hoppy Pils is sure to refresh and take the edge off on a hot summer day!

Guy on a Buffalo is here!

We're excited to start off the 2015 Weathervane series with Guy on a Buffalo, a Coffee Stout.  This is the third year that we have brewed this beer, and both coffee and beer lovers should give it a try. We started off by brewing 80 barrels of stout using chocolate, carafa, and caramel malts, as well as summit hops for bittering.  After fermentation, our friends at Montana Coffee Traders turned 160 lbs of coffee beans into a cold brew extract (which was delicious on its own).  We added the coffee extract to the beer in the brite tank, and then beer was carbonated and packaged.  It's always exciting to brew using different techniques and ingredients, and as a coffee lover, I'm glad we could combine these two great drinks.

Guy on a Buffalo is very sessionable, has a 5.4% ABV, and is the perfect beer for mid-morning (or breakfast). It is available in 22 ounce bottles and on draft.  The stout has a nice thick tan head, and the coffee flavor and aroma goes well with the roasted flavor of the beer. We hope you enjoy!
