Inspiration. Empowerment. Connection. The power of bicycle travel. Come find all of these at a special regional gathering of people of all ages interested in bicycle travel hosted by Adventure Cycling Association in the Maine Beer Company on Tuesday, May 28 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (program starts at 6:30 PM).

Black Barn No. 3 IPA Bottle & Draft Release

 
IMG_2570.jpg
 

Our Black Barn Program is about being creative, learning, and challenging our team to brew the highest quality beer. Our beer goes through extensive lab testing and our robust sensory program in order to comply with our belief in quality over quantity. Black Barn is brewed on our 15BBL brewhouse and is available in bottles and on draft exclusively in our tap room.

Black Barn No. 3 is an India Pale Ale brewed with Amarillo, Citra, and Simcoe hops. We started this brew with the mission of utilizing new hop forms and new hopping techniques. As the beer developed we weren’t as happy with the final product as we had hoped. We went back to the drawing board and brewed the beer again using traditional hopping methods and hop pellets, and the beer came out exactly as we wanted. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

This beer is interesting in that it is a classic Maine Beer Company IPA, but it is brewed with over 50% of malt from Blue Ox Malt House in nearby Lisbon Falls, Maine. Included in this grain bill is their flavorful Dark Munich malt, which is a newer specialty malt in their lineup. Additionally, this beer has the highest quantity of hops per volume of beer in the dry hop of any standard IPA we have ever brewed, clocking in at 3.3 lbs of hop pellets per barrel.

Book & Brew Night

 
Screen Shot 2019-05-13 at 10.33.01 AM.png
 

A few of us here are from the "Book It" generation and miss the years of reading & being rewarded with pizza. In the hopes of getting a fun community night going, we are partnering with our friends at Sherman's Books & Stationery to get reading & some good conversation over a beer going.

Our first book is Ruth Reichl's (restaurant critic for the New York Times, Editor of Gourmet) memoir "Save Me the Plums." This book chronicles Reichl's tenure at Gourmet, and the rise of the farm-to-table movement.

We'll be posting some questions to consider, and hope you'll join us Monday May 20th for a beer and a discussion about the book. Mention the club and receive 25% off your purchase at Sherman's Books & Stationery in Freeport.
