Fegley’s Brew Works–Space Monkey 12oz

FegleysSpaceMonkey

Here’s an exciting little tidbit from one of our local favorites.  Fegley’s Brew Works just received label approval today to package their Raspberry Saison Space Monkey in 12oz bottles.  This 7% ABV brew was preciously only available in 22oz corked-and-caged packaging so this should mean wider distribution for this great Saison.  Note that the new label also includes the new mobile-scan bar code that can be decoded by your smart phones.  Congratulations to Mike & Beau.  I’m excited to see more Space Monkey heading our way.

New Beers from Brew Works

BrewWorksLogoJust thought I’d pass on some new brews coming out of Fegley’s Brew Works.  From Mike:

BETHLEHEM:

Apricot Coriander came out this past Saturday in Bethlehem. This refreshing fruit beer is brewed with heaps of apricots and just a dash of Coriander for an amazingly delicious flavor. Or go for the the newest bad boy in town...

Nemesis (1.068 O.G., 7.4% A.B.V.) is our Belgian style Porter that will demand your attention and require your obedience.  Its bold yet medium body stays true to the British Porter style, however, its citrus and coriander aromas lend an intriguing Belgian twist.  Available in Bethlehem!

Cask Night - Thusday 11/11 5pm-  “Stout Lovers Stout” - Our delicious Steelworker’s Stoutserved at a respectable  temperature, with nothing added… simple & pure cask conditioned stout, yum.

Every Thursday, 5:00pm at Bethlehem Brew Works. Once-a-month, that evening’s 100% of the firkin sales are donated to a local charity.
WHAT is a firkin ale? A firkin is a small keg, holds about 9 gallons or so of cask-conditioned, 50°F beer.
WHY a firkin ale? If you love beer then this is your chance to experience drinking a real ale! Open up your senses to the hop and malt flavors released by drinking a beer from a hand-drawn firkin served at a respectable temperature. Our brewers then work their magic to give each cask its own special character.
October 28th – “Hessian Trooper” Belgian Porter An evil blend of Belgian influence in an English style porter. Chocolately smooth with hints of sweet orange, deliciously wrong, muwahaha!

Rude Elf’s Reserve Sell Sheet
History of the Rude Elf
This fabulous holiday ale was first developed and brewed in 1999 at the Bethlehem Brew Works under original head brewer (and co-owner) Jeff Fegley. The Fegley family thought it was appropriate to create a spiced beer to help us celebrate in the City of Bethlehem, which is considered “Christmas City, USA.” It was dubbed “Rudolph’s Reserve” because the recipe required a copious amount of malt that would result in a smaller, limited batch of beer. We proudly offered it on draft exclusively in our 250 seat brewpub in the historic downtown.

Ruldolf’s Reserve returned each year in limited batches as Jeff continued to develop the holiday recipe, and the release of the ale became a longed-for tradition by our regulars & the tourists that flock to our popular Christmas shopping district. In 2002, when the Reserve won the Silver medal in the World Beer Championships, the family decided to bottle a limited edition of the ale to celebrate the success of the brewpub. They turned to friend Dan Weirback, owner of Weyerbacher’s Brewing Co., the Easton craft brewery, and contract brewed an initial run of 250 cases of 12oz bottles.

For the original art for the beer label, we turned to another friend, R.C.Matteson of Dragon Studios, who says of his design, for the “highly regarded seasonal beer Rudolph’s Reserve, they wanted to emphasize it’s limited availability–Reserve–and how it is coveted by it’s fans, hence Santa sneaking a bottle from the wary Rudolph.” It was a great success and a quick sellout. Many a stocking was stuffed that year with bottle of the Reserve!

In 2003, we began the lengthy process of trade marking the name of our award-winning beer. Meanwhile, Jeff tweaked the recipe to produce a slightly drier (better) finish, and we contract brewed another batch of 500 cases to establish a seasonal tradition. The limited edition bottles began to sell out at a record pace, when suddenly well into the holiday season that year, the Brew Works received a ‘Cease & Desist’ letter from Classic Media, who claimed ownership of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. (Note: The concern does have a trademark on our favorite four hoofed hero – and Lassie & Frosty the Snowman as well!) After discussing it politely, we agreed to withdraw our application for registering the name and agreed to discontinue use of the moniker going forward. But despite losing the name, there was reason to celebrate again – the incident received national attention as the story was picked up by the Associated Press. We lifted our glasses in a toast as a now curious public drove sales and we watched the Reserve cases “…dash away, dash away, dash away all.”
Read the article: Rudolph’s ale brews up trademark dilemma, Tuesday, December 23, 2003, The Morning Call

In 2004, we conducted a ‘renaming contest’, which resulted in a winner of a new name – “Rude Elf’s Reserve,” and again hired Dragon Studios to design a new ‘Rudolf-free’ label. With further perfection, the Reserve was now a “Belgian style holiday spiced ale with attitude,” coming in at over 10% ABV, and the number of distributors that wanted to carry the ale continued to grow.  The Brew Works attempted to get the ale to the thirsty drinkers of NYC with American Beer Distributors, Inc., in August, 2005… but WHOA! Hold your horse-like antlered sleighpullers! The State of New York would not approve distribution of the Reserve because it’s label was ‘too appealing to children’(imagine what they would have thought of the version with Santa and you-know-who)! Once again, our story was picked up by the AP for national news. Soon, emails from around the country (even from Hawaii) were coming in asking how to taste the Rude Elf’s Reserve!
In 2006, under new Brewmaster Beau Baden, the brewery began milling whole grains (which further improved the quality of all the beers of the Brew Works) and the number of cases for Rude Elf’s Reserve continued to grow. With the opening of the Allentown Brew Works in 2007, the company began to experiment with bottling in house. For the  2008 season, Fegley’s Brew Works began packaging a 25.4oz(750ml) corked & caged bottle-conditioned version of the Rude Elf’s Reserve in addition to it’s limited draft offering at the restaurant locations.

The following year, at the largest beer competition of earth, Rude Elf’s Reserve garnered another prestigious award when it brought the Bronze Medal back to the Lehigh Valley from the Great American Beer Festival. 750 cases of Rude Elf’s Reserve was distributed throughout eastern Pennsylvania that season, but the increased demand resulted in an early sell out…
That brings us to this year!  With the introduction of our new 12oz bottling line, and building on the success that our seasonal beers have gained us (opening hundreds of thirsty accounts in PA and New Jersey) the Rude Elf’s Reserve has 1400 cases earmarked already for this year. The elves in our workshop are very busy, but just like Santa this ale comes once a year, and once its gone…    HO HO HO! Rude-elf-case-photo1-150x150

WILK Friday Beerbuzz – 23 July 2010 (Brew Works Alchemy Ale)

WILKFridayBerbuzz7 I know I overuse this sentence, but we really did have a great time on the Friday Beerbuzz today  First off we welcomed Scranton’s own Beau Baden, brewmaster for Allentown Brew Works, Bethlehem Brew Works and Brew Works on the Green in the Lehigh Valley area.  Beau not only brews some fantastic beers but a wide variety of beers AND some really special beers…and today we were lucky enough to sample one. BrewWorksAlchemyBottles

Back in 1852 Allsops Brewery in England brewed a beer called Allsops Arctic Ale and this beer was sent off with Sir Edwin Belcher in search of the northwest passage to the Canadian Arctic.  Fast forward to 2010 and Chris Bowen, Dick Gethin, and John Chay are working with Brew Works to commemorate the voyage and more importantly the beer.  Chris Dick & John are departing on a 2000-mile motorcycle ride on Sunday July 25th from Bethlehem, PA to the Canadian Arctic where they will use primitive brewing equipment to brew a batch of Arctic Ale based on the Allsop’s recipe.
BrewWorksAlchemy
So how does this all relate?  Well as it turns out our beer of the day is Arctic Alchemy, a brew that Beau and Chris Bowen brewed at Allentown Brew Works in commemoration of the 1852 Allsops Ale and the 2010 motorcycle ride.  Needless to say at 12% ABV this beer is big and flavorful like a classic English Barleywine, but rich like a classic olde ale.

Bethlehem Brew Works will be holding a special event this Sunday (July 25th) to send the riders off on their journey and release the Brew Works Arctic Alchemy beer.  Check out thebrewworks.com for details.  Also bottles will be released and sold only at the brewery….and take my word for it….this is a beer well worth seeking out.

This was a wonderful beer and a very fun visit by Beau Baden. 

All in all a very fun show and

once again I want to say t

hank you to Beau, John, Nancy (we missed you Nancy!), Joe & Bosco for yet another fun Friday. 

The Friday Beerbuzz…bringing good beers and good people together

Allsopp’s Arctic Ale - Alchemy

Artic Alchemy Mike Fegley from Brew Works was nice enough to send me more info on a story I’ve been following.  Back in 1852 a British expedition lead by Sir Edward Belcher set out through the northwest passage to explore the arctic sea.  On board that ship were several hundred bottles of Allsopp’s Arctic Ale…a high hop 12% special ale.  Years later in 2007, an original bottle was sold for over a half-million dollars…which lead to an idea.

Beginning in July 2010,  Chris Bowen, Dick Gethin, and John Chay will set out from Bethlehel, PA on a 2000-mile motorcycle journey to the Canadian Arctic (Hudson/James Bay) where they will recreate and re-brew the original Arctic Ale using Allsopp’s original recipe, local resources and a portable brewery.  Along the way they will film the adventure, and they are even inviting others to join the ride as they visit breweries and historical locations along the way. 

Alchemy is in the tanks now at Brew Works…brewed by Beau Baden & Chris Bowen using the same recipe to we should actually be able to try this beer soon.  Stay tuned as we add more details and hopefully even follow along as they ride.  Cheers to an amazing idea.
