Hops from the Future

Fresh Hops Ready for Beerby Jeff Dietzman

According to an article in Popular Science Craft Beer is annihilating the hop supply.

The Reinheitsgebot, or German Purity Law, states that the only ingredients legally allowed in true beer are malted barley, hops, water and yeast.

So, no hops no beer, right?   Continue reading

Wintery Beers To Warm Your Belly

winter beer1by Brian Wall

Oh the weather outside is frightful but beer is, so delightful and since you’ve no place to go, let it pour, let it pour, let it pour. Lower temperatures, snow on the ground and the Holiday Season can offer more than horrible traffic, ice on the stairs and bills trying to find that perfect gift for someone special. It can also offer the Winter Warmer beers that offer a very strong malty character and a stronger than normal alcohol content. These beers originate from the style known as Old Ale from England and have a history of being aged in wooden barrels to apply a secondary fermentation as well as a woody flavor varying with what type of wood the barrels were made from.

In today’s craft beer world, barrel aging is used to impart different flavors and colors from the previously used barrels. Oak is preferred and barrels can range from bourbon to wine in the initial usage.   Continue reading

Happy Two Year Anniversary Peticolas Brewing Company *Update*

peticolas4by Steven Doyle

For those that know me even the slightest know that I have been a Peticolas Brewing Company fan from day one. I recall the first time I met Michael Peticolas. I walked into his brewery shortly after he opened up at his nearly hidden facility in the Design District, and he showed me his hardware and chatted up beer. It didn’t seem like much at the time, but weeks later he took gold at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival in Denver for his brilliant English-Style Pale Ale, Royal Scandal. Peticolas followed that feat up with another gold medal in 2013 for the illustrious Velvet Hammer.

In addition to these accolades, Peticolas  won awards for Great Scot, the Strong Scottish, and his spiced Wintervention. The Velvet Hammer may possibly be the only beer married to a beautiful woman.   Continue reading

A Duo Of Dallas Brew Tours: Peticolas And Community

peicolas4by Brian Wall

Fall, the best of seasons aside from Spring. Temperatures cool down, leaves change color, temperatures cool down, children go back to school and most importantly temperatures cool down. With a cooler temperature, it is a world of difference when you decide on going to a large un-air conditioned warehouse for a brewery tour. Some do have temperature controlled areas but most can be as hot as the outside or hotter if there are plenty of bodies jockeying for beer.

This past weekend was a definite nice time for a brewery tour or possibly two tours if you feel up to it. Seeing as though Peticolas Brewing Company and Community Beer Company are roughly one mile away from each other, this seemed like a very doable reality. The tour started at 12pm at Peticolas and last pour is at 2:45. Community does their tour from 2pm-5pm, so times are not a problem.    Continue reading
