Winter Has Sprung Up and so has Ol'Woody

'Tis Friday dear Readers and as such I finally have time to sit down and tell y'all about the week done past.
Ol'Woody Alt has finished fermenting and is resting quietly in the fermenter.  Aging, mellowing and ultimately getting in shape for its long voyage out to the bars across Toronto and up North to Muskoka.

Drastically different from our first release, Golden Beach Pale Wheat, a hop forward American style Pale Wheat, Ol'Woody Alt is a traditional German Dusseldorf Altbier.  Made with all German malt and hops, this light mahogany brown lagered ale has a nasty bitter bite but with enough malt body to balance it all out.

This particular style of Altbier hails from the German city of Dusseldorf.  Ever since visiting the city with my classmates at the VLB I've wanted to brew an Alt.  I had such a great time crusin' around the Altstadt jumping from brauhaus to brauhaus, drinking Alt until the sun went down and then came up again.  The city and the beer hold a special place in my heart.  And now with the Sawdust City Brewing Co finally underway, I finally have the chance to bring some of that beer back home!  Easy to drink and quite sessionable, Ol'Woody is perfect for a fall day at the pub.  So after December 9th, head out to a fine beer bar near you and sample one.  Here's a little description of Ol'Woody -

And what of the Golden Beach Pale Wheat?  Well it was another great week for our first release.  We've heard some wonderful reviews from the drinking public and we'd like to thank everyone that carried our beer and to those of you that made it out for a sample, cause if it wasn't for you, we'd have no reason make this beer.

Now it's Friday and I'm sure you're all really thirsty, so here's a few random shots people have sent us of Golden Beach Pale Wheat looking all sexy in a pint glass -

Oooo la la, how risque!  Hopefully that did the trick and got everyone all thirsty and ready to enjoy a few pints tonight!

Later this week we're going to be brewing our first batch of Lone Pine IPA, if all goes according to Hoyle, it should make it out to the taps just before Jolly Ol' St.Nick, so keep an eye on our facebook and twitter pages for further updates.

Anyhoo, I think that's about it for this time.  Until next time, keep the beer in your mugs and the sawdust beneath your feet.
