On the Horizon

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Hellsmoke Porter has been rolled out again at last, with more to come soon. I have two 3-BBL fermenters that I'll start to keg and bottle out of in a few days.

The recipe experiments and tweaks are now done with the Long Island Potato Stout and the Hell Gate Belgian-Style Golden Ale, I'll be brewing a production batch of the latter first, with the former to follow shortly. Both should be available in December and January.

The Belgian Golden Strong Ale style is traditionally named after the Devil or variations thereof (Duvel, Belzebuth, Pranqster, Damnation, Hades Ale, etc.) The deceptively delicate Hell Gate Belgian-Style Golden Ale follows that tradition, and is also named for the bridge that spans the infamous Hell Gate portion of the East River that separates Long Island from Manhattan.

Family obligations will be keeping me from this coming Saturday's International Great Beer Expo at Nassau Coliseum, but Rich Thatcher and the Long Island Beer & Malt Enthusiasts will be kindly pouring some of my Hellsmoke Porter along with the great brews by the group at their table. They'll be having 13 beers on tap!
