Enegren Brewing has announced the winner of their Design The Stein Art Contest. It is @chano805. Their limited Festbier will be released at their Octoberfest on September 25th.
No tension, just Ten as in Zehn at Enegren Brewing. August 21st
“It has been 10 years since we started this journey in a 1000sqft a 3 barrel brewery serving only 4 taster glasses of beer to each confused individual that stumbled upon our door. Things have changed! And it’s time to celebrate! Mark your calendars and grab your lederhosen because we’re throwing an epic ZEHN FEST complete with German Music, German Food, a ferris wheel and our 10TH Anniversary Zehn Fest Pilsner served in one of a kind Maximilian Steins!”
The great thing about niche style breweries like Enegren Brewing is that it allows the guest brewer to play in a different sandbox than normal. Beachwood does its fair share of styles but a Dortmunder is a little brewed style that is welcome to see and probably design a recipe for. And it would pair nicely with their BBQ too.
Enegren Brewing recently releases a new rotating Hop pilsner using “Grüngeist hops, meaning “green ghost” in German, lend flavors of peach, passionfruit, and lemon zest giving this pilsner a slight fruitiness with a crisp finish.”
I had never heard of this hop before and I found you haven’t either, this might be a great way to start sampling these single hop pilsners.
One of the benefits of seasonal releases is that you have lead time and can do fun stuff like have a label design contest and you can also reference the year in both number and image. It also helps that Enegren Brewing does Germanic beers really well.
When a brewery ties itself to a specific style, it can cut a couple ways. One is that certain styles are left aside that are fun or hot sellers but it can also mean that hardcore fans get chuffed if you do anything other than what your mission statement from years ago said.
If that pilsner tastes half as good as it looks in that glass, then it will be a treat. Enegren is shipping in California too.
Time to feel strong, I think. An Enegren is giving us a Gladiator. A big and burly dopplebock to take our minds off all of the things we are currently fighting. Maybe six crowlers would be better?
When it comes to series that rotate from hop to hop. It is usually IPAs or rarely pale ales or Saisons. But Enegren rotates a new hop to pilsner and this month brings a classic, Cascade. Draft or 4-packs available.
