Featured Brewery # 1 – Stewart’s Brewing Company

The theme for this month’s brewery tours is “Bear” and we head to Delaware, to the town of Bear to visit Stewart’s Brewing Company which has been around since 1995. Making it quite the veteran in the beer world.

And here is what I would put into an initial taster tray…

Governor’s Golden Ale – ” A golden-colored ale with a low bitterness level, a moderate hop flavor provided by Styrian Golding hops from Czechoslovakia. This beer is very approachable and serves as a great session beer. “

12 O’Clock Rye – ” Fermented with a Saison Dupont yeast blend and moderately hopped with Citra and Cascade with a subtle backend dry finish from the rye and acidulated malts.

Porchville IPA – ” Easy drinking American IPA featuring Nugget and CTZ hops providing a mild herbal and resinous aroma.”

McBride’s Strong Ale – ” A strong ale with a deep amber color that has a pronounced malt flavor and aroma complimented by a slight smooth sweetness.”
