(Seneca Falls, NY) – Fleur De Lis Brew Works proudly announces its first bottle release May 19 in time for American Craft Beer Week & the brewery’s one year anniversary. Among the 500mL bottle selections is All in the Family, a braggot brewed with massive amounts of local honey. The honey provides a nice balance to the hop bitterness and is aged over six months to smooth any alcohol bite.
Other unique bottles include the flagship Mon Ami, bière de garde & Vigoureux, a whiskey barrel-aged roggenbier.
The release is exclusive to the brewery’s Craft Beer Parlour located in Seneca Falls, NY, part of the Finger Lakes region upstate.
Fleur De Lis Brew Works would like to welcome you to our farm brewery. For us, that’s just not a marketing campaign. We bring a strong heritage of farming, service and business acumen to the craft brewing industry. Here is our story…
Our name, Fleur De Lis Brew Works, is part of the Partee legacy. The fleur de lis symbol depicts a stylized lily or lotus blossom. This French symbol is part of our family’s coat of arms and is featured in our logo and throughout the property. Brew Works conjures images of a historic waterworks plant. The stainless steel brewing equipment is on full display with exposed plumbing and piping. The combination of stainless equipment, copper bar & galvanized aluminum accents compliment the brick, historic barn boards and Edison lighting in the beer parlour. In tribute to our heritage, we have chosen to name our brewery Fleur De Lis Brew Works.
This is not to say we don’t love our big, shiny Prospect Park brewery. It’s what brings the world Furious and Xtra-Citra and hog frites and pizza, it’s where people bring their excellent dogs to the beer garden in the summer, and it was a reason for changing an antiquated state law.
But Brooklyn Center is where it all began. It’s a repurposed abrasives factory located at a dead end in an industrial park. What kind of a monster wouldn’t love that? It’s where our experiments became our flagships. It’s where many of our most popular beer hall-only brews get made.
With that in mind, we’re going back to the lab and sharing the results with you.
In case you hadn’t already guessed it, this is a press release announcing our BC Small Batch series, a monthly release of 4-pack tallboys showcasing the work of our restless, talented crew of brewers.
“The whole idea is having the opportunity to experiment and package the beers on a smaller scale,” says Jerrod Johnson, head brewer, Surly Brewing Co. “The Brooklyn Center brewery, the same brewhouse we’ve been operating since Day One, affords us this opportunity.”
And by small, we mean small. Each release will max out at 120 barrels.
As for the beers themselves, they’ll include: Styles we’re known for. Styles we’re not. Variations on variations. Collaborations. Stuff we’ve never canned before. Weird-ass shit that’s going to blow your mind. Beautiful mistakes. Next Big Things.
The first beer? Inside the Upside Down, an imperial kettle sour brewed with strawberry puree and whole raspberries. It’s a collaboration with the fruited-beer geniuses at Miami’s J. Wakefield Brewing, and a variation on a beer Surly brewer Josh “JAWSH” Lemke made with them last winter.
“It’s a true attempt to marry Surly’s style and Wakefield’s style,” says Lemke. “They’re known for their fruited Berliners and we’re known for our hop-forward beers. This collaboration perfectly showcases both.”
The run on Inside the Upside Down is 60 barrels, so distribution on this one will be limited to Minnesota and North Dakota. The footprint for future 120-barrel releases will roughly be MN, ND, Wisconsin, and the Chicago area.
Speaking of which, here’s the 2018 rundown, subject to change if we feel like it:
Inside the Upside Down — imperial kettle sour ale with strawberry and raspberry.
Zest Crazed — American pale ale with grapefruit and lemon.
Stunner — tropical session ale.
Frisson — Champagne-inspired black currant lager. A Beer Hall favorite.
3DH — triple IPA.
Damien — American black ale.
Furious Black — black IPA.
Grindcore — espresso milk stout.
Inside the Upside Down will hit local shelves the week of April 30th. It will also be on very limited draft at our beer hall starting May 9.
(Denver, CO) — Buy Viagra 25 mg in Cedar Rapids Iowa will release their fourth annual Maibock lager, Mai The Fourth, brewed specially for (the universally recognized) Star Wars Day on Friday, May 4th.
It is a period of lagered brews. Wit’s End Brewing Company, brewing from a hidden base with Strange Craft Beer Co., have made their fourth annual beer in support of Star Wars Day, May 4. During the Brew, Wit’s End managed to use their secret mashing techniques and extended lagering to produce MAI THE FOURTH, a Maibock lager with enough flavor to fill an entire taproom. Pursued by summer month, this classic spring style races to glasses aboard draft taps and in Crowlers that can serve the people and restore lager to the galaxy…
Mai The Fourth, a traditional German-style lager, is brewed to highlight malt characters without too much sweetness, uses German hops to help balance it out, and was fermented with Bavarian lager yeast to produce clean, malty flavors with a touch of fruity grape notes.
“There are two things that we’ve always been a big fan of here at Wit’s End, Star Wars and a good beer pun,” explains head brewer Tyler Bies. “This beer was brainstormed four years ago as a way to celebrate May The Fourth. We always try to highlight big malt flavors in our beers, so our take on a Maibock is at the upper end of the style for color and ABV.”
The result is a malty balanced beer weighing in at 7% ABV that could frighten you with its sorcerous ways. Craft beer padawans, know your limits on this one…
Mai the Fourth will be released on draft and in Crowlers at the StrangeWit tasting room on Friday, May 4 at 12pm, with food from My Angel’s Fine Cuisine and limited edition Mai The Fourth t-shirts for purchase.

San Carlos, CA – Buy Viagra 25 mg in Chesapeake Virginia will release a Hefeweizen as part of its seasonal Kaleidoscope series. The Bavarian-style beer debuts on draught and in 22 oz. bottles starting May 4 in the brewery’s taproom and at select retailers.
“Hefeweizen is the perfect beer to sip as it gets warmer out,” said Chris Garrett, the brewery’s owner. “We made ours with California oranges, which is a nod to our region’s agricultural history.”
The Kaleidoscope series plays on seasonality, with quarterly releases that reflect consumer tastes that change with the weather. Future brews in the series include a Pilsner in time for late summer months and a Cream Ale to coincide with the holidays.
Said Garrett, “With the Kaleidoscope series, we take classic styles and add unexpected flavors, like golden raspberries in our Golden Strong Ale and coriander in our White IPA.”
Kaleidoscope Hefeweizen will be available on draught at Devil’s Canyon Beer Garden Fridays starting on May 4, with retail placements to follow. The longrunning series of events features the brewery’s craft beers, food trucks, and live music. Beer Garden Fridays are kid- and dog-friendly, a rarity in public events.
“Making great beer is important to us, but there’s nothing greater than sharing it with our community,” said owner Garrett. “We’re always excited to bring the next great beer to our supporters, and the Kaleidoscope Hefeweizen is no exception.”

Named Sinsear, the Gaelic translation of ‘roots’, the beer is an Imperial Irish Red Ale that was infused with lemon zest and ginger and aged for five months in George Dickel Superior Number 12 Whisky barrels. The result is a smooth, rich beer at 8.5% abv, reminiscent of a Tennessee Mule cocktail, which was inspiration for the brewers.
This collaboration was over a year in the making and culminated with Guinness Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House Brewmaster Peter Wiens and Head Brewer Hollie Stephenson traveling to Nashville and joining Tennessee Brew Works’ Head Brewer Matt Simpson, brewers Andy Bohleber and Stephanie Smith, and George Dickel’s Brian Downing, to create this complex and delicious cocktail beer.
There will be two events to celebrate the release on April 30.
Tennessee Brew Works will host an Irish Breakfast from 8am, with a keg-tapping event at 11am and featuring beer cocktails and music.
The Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. in Tullahoma County, the home of George Dickel, and about an hour’s drive away from downtown Nashville, will be hosting a ticketed event with a complimentary bus leaving Tennessee Brew Works at 10.30am and returning by 4pm. For more information visit:
