After a serious thoughts I’ve decided to change my theme of interest. Living in a small city far far far away from relevant and “live” beer news I was unable to cover all the new beers to give you relevant news. My new site is going to focus on graphical design of Czech breweries’ logos and the main goal is to collect all of them. Long road ahead though there are more than 350 breweries in the Czech Republic so it will take some time. And what do we know, maybe there will be a real book published one day… :)
Browar Bazyliszek from Warsaw is another pretty interesting craft brewery from Poland. Its latest brew is their second Russian Imperial Stout with pretty cool name: MORDOR.
I quite admire their portfolio so I´m adding batch of their labels to the post as well and I´m not sure. They are very clever and funny but I don´t know if I like them or not. The brewery logo is perfect but the mix of photography and hand graphic… See for yourself.
Brand new IPA from brewpub Nova Sladovna (Opava). Brewmaster (and my friend) Jakub Dobrovolny is sampling a new beer – Columbus IPA – dry, hoppy ale with 6.2% alc. with lemonish, herby and spicy palate. Personally I can´t wait to taste it. Available since Feb/10/2015.
Sulewski APA – Hrubieszow, Poland – near Ukrainan borders – link
New beer alert – Poland
Pracownia Piwa (near Krakow) – Dragon Fire – strong Imperial IPA made with rye and three kinds of pepper (green, black and red) + Simcoe hops – Maybe a detonation in your mouth – link.
Microbrewery in Frydek-Mistek announced its first new beer in 2015. It´s Vidensky special (Vienna lager) and it´s going to be on sale by Jan.16th.
Vienna or amber lager was developed by brewer Anton Dreher in Vienna in 1841. Austrian brewers who emigrated to Mexico in the late 19th century took the style with them. Vienna lager is a reddish-brown or copper-colored beer with medium body and slight malt sweetness. The malt aroma and flavor may have a toasted character.
Wow, that is something extraordinary! Kounice brewery is preparing a new series of single hop, single malt ales. With alcohol volume 6.5 percent they will use very interesting kinds of hops plus single pilsener malt.
The first batch is already made and it´s from Nelson Sauvin hops (New Zealand/fruits-gooseberry)
The others batches will be made from Mandarina (Germany/fruits), Polaris (Germany/fruits-mint), Melon (Germany/fruits-melon) and Sorachi Ace (Japan/fruits).
The whole project looks awesome and I really hope that I´ll be able to get some of them and taste them.
The labels are pretty cool as well! Good job, Kounice!
