Brewery news USA, NC: New Belgium’s Asheville brewery to open its doors to the public on May 2
Starting in May, beer fans can kick back along the French Broad River in Asheville and sip a Fat Tire in New Belgium’s sparkling new “Liquid Center” tasting room. On May 2 the doors swing open at 21 Craven Street, Asheville, NC and the public will be able to taste locally brewed New Belgium beers for the first time at the brewery’s new location. Tasting room hours will be Monday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sunday noon to 8:00 p.m. Public brewery tours will start this summer, Mountain Xpress reported on March 23.

The 6,000 square foot riverside tap room is clad in local artist-made bars, tables and chairs crafted from nearly 14 linear miles of repurposed wood salvaged from the stockyard formerly onsite. A cantilevered deck sits above the new greenway and French Broad River, local food trucks will be on site, and an event lawn will be in place later this summer to host bike in movies and general outdoor fun.

“It feels like home,” said Tyler Foos, Asheville Liquid Center Manager. “When you visit, you’ll recognize us by the New Belgium beer quality and warmth you’ve come to know and love from our coworkers. And, by ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, ND: Flatland Brewery getting ready to launch in West Fargo
West Fargo will soon have its own beer and soda brewery as the popularity of craft beers and home brewing just keeps bubbling up in the metro area, Grand Forks Herald reported on March 23. Frank Clemens, president of Flatland Brewery LLC, said he hopes to open the brewery at 3140 Bluestem Drive by July after the city approved a conditional use permit for the business at its Monday, March 21, meeting.

Flatland Brewery will brew craft beers and sodas with seating inside and outdoors on a patio.

Patrons will be able to purchase snacks or have food delivered to Flatland Brewery, but the brewery will not include a restaurant. That is something that Clemens hasn’t ruled out for down the road.

In the meantime, the focus will be on keeping a wide, ever-changing variety of microbrews and sodas on the menu.

Flatland Brewery will be the first public brewing house to open in West Fargo.

“Everyone we talked to in West Fargo, leading up to this, they said they’d like to have a neighborhood [brewery],” Clemens said. “We have them around but depending on where you live it could be a 15- to 45- minute drive.”

Clemens has been brewing beer at home for about ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, NE: Boiler Brewing Company joining Lincoln craft beer scene on April 1
If you like to experiment with new beers, then Lincoln's newest craft brewery may be right up your alley, Lincoln Journal Star reported on March 24.

Boiler Brewing Company, which is in the basement of the Grand Manse building at 10th and P streets, will open April 1 with at least four of its beers on tap, but probably a few more, said taproom manager Thad Aerts.

"Most likely we'll have more than that," Aerts said. There are 12-13 beers brewing in Boiler's tanks right now, he said, and at least some of those will be available when the brewery opens.

The four that will be on tap for sure are Raspberry Tart, a raspberry blonde; Koo Koo for Coconut, a coconut stout; Hisbiscus Saison; and Overdone IPA.

If you are noticing a theme of strong flavors, there's a reason for that.

Boiler Brewing's brewmaster is Tim Thomssen, a former home brewer who won the 2015 Sam Adams LongShot Award, which recognizes the top home brewers in the country.

Thomssen’s LongShot award-winning beer, Raspberry Berliner Weisse, will be available at Boiler Brewing Company on April 22, one day before Sam Adams releases it anywhere else.

Thomssen is known for experimenting with bold flavors, and that will continue ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, IL: Homewood couple close to launching Rabid Brewing
Homewood residents Tobias Cichon and his wife, Raiye Rosado, started developing plans to open their own craft beer brewery back in 2011, Chicago Tribune reported on March 24.

Five years later, they are sorting out paperwork, ordering equipment, and working to complete the last stages of making their dream a reality.

Called Rabid Brewing, the brewery will seek to produce a unique selection of craft beer and a flavorful experience for the community.

"We are hoping to have everything in place by the beginning of summer," said Cichon, as he stood in the middle of the brewery's future home at 17759 Bretz Dr., in Homewood, at the far end of the business park behind Menards.

On March 22, the Village of Homewood Board of Trustees voted unanimously to approve a special use permit allowing Cichon to operate the craft brewery. The board approval follows a recommendation from Homewood's plan commission.

Homewood Mayor Rich Hofeld spoke on the enthusiasm that the village had for the new business.

"It's the latest in what people are looking for – taprooms and breweries," Hofeld said. "[Cichon and Rosado] are fulfilling their dream, essentially, and we're excited for them."

The place might not seem like much at this stage. Near the entrance, ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, NE: Kinkaider Brewing Company expanding and staying true to its roots
After 15 months in business, a brewery in Custer County is expanding and staying true to its home-grown roots, Knopnews2 reported on March 23.

Kinkaider Brewing Company is most known for its unique jalapeño ale.

"It scares some people. When they hear about the jalapeño ale, they can get a little nervous," Dan Hodges, who spent 10 years perfecting the recipe, said.

Cody Schmick, a part owner of the company, attests to its popularity, "It's fantastic. We sell it all over and people want that beer."

It's one of 30 beer styles that are all crafted at the brewery with great pride.

"In our branding, Broken Bow is on everything," he said. "We're proud to be here. We're proud to be on this farm."

It's the place where about 20,000 gallons of beer was produced last year.

"We're small enough that we get to have some fun and do some different things with the beer; but, we're also at the place where we can ship some beer," Schmick said.

The beer is now shipped across the state, from Ogallala to Omaha and everywhere in between. Kinkaider products are now featured in 200 stores.

The company recently purchased six 600-gallon brite tanks to produce more beer.

Owners say their primary focus ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, WY: Danielmark’s Brewing Co. set to officially open in Cheyenne in a few weeks
Beer is brewing on 18th Street in Cheyenne, and the Magic City of the Plains’ newest brewery will be open to the public in a few short weeks, Wyoming Tribune reported on March 25.

Danielmark’s Brewing Co. received its federal permit on March 21 and will be open in early April, said Kim Combs, the company’s treasurer.

An announcement about the exact date of the brewery’s grand opening will be made next week on the brewery’s Facebook page, she said.

“I think it’s just exciting to open a new business and bring something to Cheyenne everybody’s wanting,” Combs said.

The brewery is the work of two couples – Paul and Beth Warntz and Daniel and Kim Combs – and it takes its name from Daniel and his middle name, Mark.

Danielmark’s first announced the brewery last summer, but delays in obtaining the necessary Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) permit kept pushing the opening date back.

Kim Combs said the brewery enlisted the help of the offices of both Sens. Mike Enzi and John Barrasso, the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce and Visit Cheyenne to put pressure on the TTB to complete the permit process.

Combs said the permit was received on March 21 morning, ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, OH: Platform Beer Co. continues to grow and expand in Ohio City
Despite launching a short 18 months ago, Platform Beer Co. continues to grow and expand its operations at an astonishing pace. The Ohio City-based brewery owned by Justin Carson and Paul Benner debuted with a wee 3-barrel system in the summer of 2014. Six months later the team upgraded to its current 10-barrel system, supported by a battery of new 15-barrel fermentation and conditioning tanks. The team took a major leap forward when they purchased the former Leisy Brewery, a 120,000-square-foot complex that already is cranking out a tremendous quantity of beer in cans and kegs, Cleveland Scene Weekly reported on March 24.

“We brewed 97 barrels of beer in 2014,” explains Benner. “We’re on track to brew 12,000 barrels in 2016.”

Up until now, all that beer has been going to quench the thirst of the Greater Cleveland market. But with seven shiny new 120-barrel tanks already on route to the Cleveland production brewery, Platform soon will have the bandwidth to serve a larger market, and the next logical market, the owners say, is Columbus.

But rather than simply truck their product two hours south on I-71 a few times per week, the Platform guys wanted to build a more permanent ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, CA: Brass Bear Brewing focusing on all things local in Santa Barbara
Lindsay Anderson wanted to start a beer, wine and food business focusing on all things local — something she knows a bit about as a Santa Barbara native, Noozhawk reported on March 25.

She moved from New York back to her hometown a year ago with her husband, Seth. She had worked in marketing and he in finance.

With their powers combined, the couple opened Brass Bear Brewing in the Funk Zone a month ago at 28 Anacapa St. #E, in the back of a building fronted (and owned) by Kunin Wines.

The Andersons serve an ever-revolving list of craft beer, wine, champagne and cider alongside a tasty menu of charcuterie, potato cakes, salads, grilled sandwiches and other locally sourced fare.

Brass Bear, which also caters and hosts special events, collaborates with Santa Barbara’s Pure Order Brewing.

Goleta’s M.Special Brewery and Rincon Brewery in Carpinteria are also on draft, not to mention some of Brass Bear’s own brews.

“Beer is our passion,” Lindsay Anderson said, noting the couple has been home brewing since 2009. “Everything is local. We thought the Funk Zone needed more food, too.”

They worked to renovate the space for a year, transforming the former hair salon and glass-blowing studio into a local’s haven ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: British beer drinkers forecast to be turning soon to ale again
British drinkers are shunning lager and turning to ale in a boost to the country’s brewers, according to the chairman of beer maker Adnams.

Industry figures show sales of ale fell nearly twice as fast as sales of lager over the 10 years to 2014 as the overall demand for beer declined.

But Jonathan Adnams, the fourth generation of his family to run the Southwold brewer, said ale is now staging a comeback.

“The growth of lager relative to ale seems to be turning around, aside from premium and craft lagers,” he said.

But he also warned that UK total UK beer sales fell 1.5 per cent last year and lamented ‘the sad reduction’ in pub numbers across Britain.

“We too have seen the impact on our pub estate of changing consumer tastes and increasing competition from home entertainment, casual dining, fast food outlets, coffee shops and others,” said the 59-year-old.

The comments came as Adnams reported a dip in annual revenues from £66 million to £65.7million. But it raised its dividend from £1.36 a share to £1.44 a share after profits rose 7.3 per cent to £4.1million.

Adnams, who has worked for the company for 40 years and was paid £248,000 last year, welcomed recent cuts ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Kiuchi Brewery’s craft beer finding more recognition abroad than at home
With 99% of the local beer market dominated by five major makers, it's little wonder that Japan's craft brews don't always get the recognition they could at home, the Nikkei Asian Review reported on March 24.

But it's a different story in overseas markets, where Kiuchi Brewery is busy writing its own chapter of growth.

Sporting an iconic owl mascot and bold, English-heavy labels, Kiuchi Brewery's Hitachino Nest line of beers is often mistaken for imports by Japanese drinkers. And yet it is their "Japanese-ness" that has helped make these beers a hit elsewhere in Asia.

In Singapore and Bangkok, it is not difficult to find restaurants that offer Hitachino Nest on tap, and locals are lapping it up.

"Japanese ingredients like local rice and malt mean the beer goes well with Asian food, unlike the same kind of imported Western beer," said a 29-year-old Thai man who has been a big fan of Hitachino Nest since he first came across it at a restaurant in Bangkok. In his opinion, "Hitachino is a mixture of East and West."

According to the National Tax Agency, Japan had 173 craft beer makers as of March 2014. A survey from corporate credit researcher Tokyo Shoko Research in 2015 ...More info on site
