HAPPY NEW BEER!
Hello Beer fans! I hope that everyone had a great holiday season full of tasty ales and lagers. I sure enjoyed my “12 Beers of Christmas” box and I know that you all did too. Just like always we have a list of some of the new beers that are out in the market and awaiting your purchase. It is also the time of the year when we brew collaboration beer with the guys at Outlander Brewing. All of the guides have submitted an idea and we want our guests to vote on which beer would be the best!
Fact of the Month
The modern fermenters the most breweries use these days are called CCV’s (closed conical vessels) or CCT’s Cylindroconical Tanks. Traditionally brewers used open fermentation tanks called “coolships” to cool the wort and inoculate it with yeast.
