Austin Street Bier 2 Cellar Release July 29 2014, 0 Comments


The day has finally arrived.  When we last left our little collaboration with our friends at Austin Street Brewery (you can catch up on the back story in this previous blog post) we were letting the little Brettanomyces Claussenii yeast do their funky little magic in the bottles.  Well, the time has come, the Azacca hopped IPA that was bottled with Brettanomyces is ready to greet the world to celebrate two years of us getting to be your local bottleshop.  

We are incredibly excited to share this beer with you.  The Azacca is giving the beer a great pineapple/fruit juice aroma and flavor, and the brett is just beginning to express itself.  This is a beer that will drink great fresh, but will also age and develop in the bottle.  We are setting a sale cap at two bottles per person, so you have the opportunity to age a bottle and drink one fresh to compare the difference.  We would like to set bottle limits higher, but we are only looking at a release in the 200 bottle mark.

Bottles will go on sale Saturday both at Bier Cellar and at the brewery at 1 Industrial Way.  If you haven't gotten out there, do yourself a favor and try some of Jake and Will's delicious beers.   Jake is brewing some amazing beers with mixed fermentations that need to be tried.  You can even visit Bissell Brothers, Foundation and Allagash as well, all without moving your car.

These will be priced at $14.99 for a 750ml bottle.  Members of our email list will get an email on Friday night with the opportunity to hold a couple bottles.  If you aren't a member of the email list you can join at at the bottom of the page.   

Once again, we want to say thanks to our collaboration partners at Austin Street Brewery, but also to you, our customers and friends who have given us the opportunity to be a part of the wonderful 207 bier scene and the opportunity to do what we love for a living.
