Mast Landing & Bier Cellar Shorts Weather May 30 2018, 0 Comments
Going back to 2014 it has been a tradition to brew an anniversary beer with friends of ours at local breweries. We did two rounds of Bier 2 Cellar with Austin Street Brewery in 2014 and 2015, we did Tropical Storm with Liquid Riot in 2016 and 2017 and now for 2018 we are releasing Shorts Weather IPA with our friends at Mast Landing. This beer will celebrate the 6th Anniversary of Bier Cellar Portland and the opening of our new shop in Gorham, Bier Cellar West which opened its doors on May 25th.
We brewed Shorts Weather on May 11th at Mast Landing's brewery in Westbrook. We had bounced around ideas for a beer for a few weeks, nailing down a style, then the fruit we would use for the beer. This is a smoothie IPA, brewed with peaches and apricots as well as lactose. The peaches and apricot bring stone fruit to the citrus and tropical fruit from the hops, and the lactose creates a smooth body and a touch of sweetness to balance out the hops. A beautiful fruit bomb to welcome in Shorts Weather that lasts far too short here in Maine.
We will be releasing Shorts Weather just hours after it comes off the canning line on Friday, June 1st. We will have cans available at both our Portland and Gorham locations for opening at noon. We are taking paid holds via our website, http://www.biercellar.com/products/mast-landing-bier-cellar-shorts-weather-ipa. Any paid holds will be available anytime after 1pm on Friday.
These are four packs of 16oz cans and will retail for $17.99. Many thanks to Mast Landing for partnering with us on such a fun beer. This will be a one time release, so don't sleep on it, once they are gone, these cans are gone. We hope to see you at one of our shops Friday to help kick off Summer, celebrate our anniversary and opening of a new shop and to welcome in Shorts Weather.
