For most of the summer, we’ve been busy brewing up a storm for many private events and tastings. It goes without saying there’s been a ton of paperwork and contractual negotiations as we finalize our location. But we have a public tasting coming up!
We’re donating kegs and serving beer on the Southside for Labor Day weekend. The Beverly Brews Fest is held by the Beverly Arts Center, and it looks like there will be a dozen other breweries besides Southbridge in attendance. We’ll have at least 4 beers: Southside Ale, Mint Condition IPA, Bring Me Home Berry, and one other not yet decided. There’s really too many to choose from.
Sorry about the pun! But tonight we had a small amount of friends came over to try out an even smaller flight of our beers. Good conversation had by all.
Our flight consisted of many of the beers we’ve brewed over January and February, but it wasn’t much. Jon and I have been very busy getting together the business plan, and searching for different locations. We still wanted to fulfill our promise of a tasting every month till we open, but it’s a strange feeling to be so close to a real place. Continue reading “Small tasting to close out Febrewary!”
To stay ahead in the brewery scene, it’s important for Southbridge to develop new recipes that give our fans a taste of the unknown. If we want to have a different beer of the week, 52 times out of the year, we should be able to crank out some interesting experiments. I’m always excited to be able to share this kind of creativity. Our beers are all about bringing delicious and ambitious beers to the locals.
As we build out the brewery in 2015, we’ll do our best to keep you updated. I’ve set the goal to write at least one article a week, to help flesh out our website and make our page more Google friendly.
So one particular Thursday I was minding my own business on a very late lunch break from work. Browsing on my phone I came across an open submission for homebrew that was happening in about 2 hours at a Craft Beer Cafe by the name of Beermiscuous… Of course a ran home and brought a six pack over for them to try.
The night’s finale was a hybrid between a Belgian and an American Pale Ale brewed by Zigmas Maloni of Southbridge Brewery, a upcoming nano brewery . Named “Southside Ale” the ale was citrusy, and also had an excellent copper color, which gave the appearance of a more professional product than that of an amateur. – Ben Kramer, Chicagoist
