Philly Beer Week concludes

As our first week of distribution and Philly Beer Week draws to a close I need to thank all the good folks who supported the cause. Everybody has been amazing.

I had the opportunity to meet many people this week, get lots of positive feedback, and think up some new ideas. Sometime its real nice to get outta the brewery. As a brewer, all the planning and technical brewing knowledge in the world is no replacement for sitting in a local pub and drinking every one of your beers - and talking to others who are. I'm so proud of what we've accomplished.

The Kenzinger is so dangerously drinkable - smooth and classy.

The Walt Wit is distinctive from most other white beers - crisp and spicy and pleasantly dry finishing.

The New Bold IPA has a solid malt character and a not-so-abrasively-bitter rounded hoppiness - fruity and herbal.

The Philadelphia-style Rowhouse Red is surprisingly funky with all its different malts balancing each other and showcasing an awesome yeast character.

I couldn't be much happier with the release of these 4 right from the start but I promise they're only gonna get better. We're going to get that bottling line up and running and release bottles next week. This has been a great beginning for us - and we've got a lot more tricks up our sleeves.

Again, I'm sincerely grateful to get the chance to drink our beer with you all in person. You could have been any number of places drinking with someone else but thanks for drinking with me.
