Kounice Single Hop Single Malt Ales Series — January 5, 2015

Kounice Single Hop Single Malt Ales Series

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!

A beauty from Poland – Cziechan Poter — December 15, 2014

A beauty from Poland – Cziechan Poter

Ciechan brewery from Ciechanow is one of the more interesting bigger breweries in Poland. Their beers are not bad and they have quite a good PR department. And this is one of their best ideas. December Porter is thick, full beer that you can buy in ordinary bottles but now if you have an acces to some good polish beer store you may be able to purchase this beauty. Limited edition of it in awesome bottle. I´m not sure how many of them are available but it looks just perfect.

Beer is simple, isn´t it…?

BUY A PRINT!

So, you’re tasked with grabbing beer for a party. What do you do? You reach the beer aisle (or aisles) and suddenly it hits you. You have no idea what you’re doing. Why are there so many kinds of beers? How could they possibly be all that different? Then you do the unthinkable. You grab some American Adjunct Lager (think Budweiser, Miller, etc) and head off. You just chose a beer with almost no hops, no malt, no fruity ester flavor, a beer that is crisp and carbonated at least, but flavorless in the big world of beers (no offense to fans of American Lagers).

How do you decide then? While there may be dozens upon dozens of beer varieties, there are only two styles of beer: ales and lagers. But both are beer, so let’s start there.

This anniversary set with a beautiful glass is just perfect. Browar Fortuna in Miloslaw is one of the best polish breweries and now they proved that their PR section works perfect as well. But the most important fact is that their beers are quite good and with this glass it is no brainer. I must have it!
