Sam Adams, Weihenstephan to brew new beer

•October 21, 2009 • Leave a Comment

October 21, 2009
FREISING, Germany –Boston Beer Co., maker of Samuel Adams, will team up with a venerable German brewery to jointly brew a new craft beer to be marketed in Germany and the U.S. next spring.

Boston Beer CEO Jim Koch and Josef Schraedler, managing director of Weihenstephan, told The Associated Press Wednesday that their two companies have been working together for two years on the beer, which they will make and market jointly.

It has yet to be named, but will be marketed in bottles with corks instead of the usual metal caps. It will pack a punch, with 10 percent alcohol.

The Weihenstephan brewery, owned by the state of Bavaria, dates back to 1040 when Benedictine monks began making beer at their cloister outside Munich.

The new beer will also follow Germany’s famed Reinheitsgebot, an ancient purity law — since 1516 — which stipulates that beer can be brewed with only four ingredients: water, malt, hops and yeast.

“We’re creating a brand, a product that never existed before, a very premium brand” Koch told AP.

“Beer can stand with dignity and respect with the best of wine and spirits,” he said, without elaborating on brewing style or price.

[EVENT] Choc Beer brings home Gold from GABF!

•September 28, 2009 • Leave a Comment

The Great American Beer Festival, which is the largest commercial beer competition in the world, was held over the weekend in Denver, Colorado.

And Oklahoma’s very own Choc Beer Company, received a gold medal for their Signature Dubbel, which was entered into the Belgian-Style Abbey Ale category, beating out, among others Allagash Brewing which took silver and Deschutes Brewery getting the bronze.

There were 49,000 attendees to this years event, with 495 breweries entering 3,308 beers into the competitions. So getting any medal is a feat of its own. But winning gold is a big time award for Choc and for the state of Oklahoma beer scene in general. Since breweries can use these awards as a selling point on their products, this is just one more step in helping put Oklahoma on the beer map.

The GABF competition attracted 132 international beer judges from ten countries. Award-winning brewers received prestigious gold, silver and bronze medals in 78 beer categories, establishing the best examples of each style in the US.

So be sure to congratulate the guys over at Choc brewery for putting out another great product and winning a gold medal at the largest beer competition in the world.
