Interested in learning how to brew beer the way brewers brew? It’s called all-grain brewing and the good news is that the tools and equipment needed to get started have been greatly simplified through the introduction of all-in-one brewing systems, several of which are now on the market. We’ll cover the equipment you need to get started, talk about the ingredients that make up beer, go over what happens on brew day, and discuss fermentation schedules and bottling and/or kegging. We’ll also go through various all-in-one systems that are available, discussing their advantages and disadvantages. Quick note, Brewmented uses all-in-one brewing systems for all of its experimental batches.

City Star Brewing Releases Deadwood in Bottles: Imperial Red Ale Aged in Whiskey Barrelshttps://citystarbrewing.com/wp-content/themes/osmosis/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg 150 150 City Star Brewing City Star Brewing https://citystarbrewing.com/wp-content/themes/osmosis/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg
The latest in the City Star Zoller Barrel Aged Series will be released in the City Star taproom on Saturday, August 19th:
Deadwood is an imperial red ale aged 4 months in Spirit Hound Distillers whiskey oak barrels. Held by candlelight, this beer is deep garnet in color. The Idaho 7 hops in the base beer impart apricot and tropical fruit notes to the aroma, while plum and dried cherry flavors from the whiskey barrels mingle on the tongue. The beer finishes with sweet whiskey notes and a mild lingering heat. “Working with a local distiller such as Spirit Hound is of great advantage to us since are able to receive barrels immediately after they have been emptied. Getting these ‘wet’ barrels at the peak of their freshness and filling them with beer grants us optimal flavor from the barrels.” (City Star Head Brewer, John Way) Lace up your boots and strap on your spurs, ’cause this brew is rowdy like the town it was named for. 11.4% ABV
Less than 500 bottles will be available for sale at $16/22oz bottle (1 case limit), AND Deadwood will be on draft for sampling.
Each bottle is dipped in wax and hand stamped with the City Star Brewing seal. With less than 500 bottles of Deadwood, we don’t expect our supply to stick around.
City Star will be hosting a Deadwood preview event on Thursday, August 17th in the Zoller Barrel House at City Star Brewing from 7-8pm. City Star head brewer, John Way, and a representative from Spirit Hound Distillers will be on site for a meet and greet. Event details can be found here: citystarbrewing.com/deadwood-preview
