Fegley’s Brew Works– Chatfield Manor IPA NEARFest 2011 & Devious

post1 post2

Here’s your first look at the label for the Brew Works Chatfield Manor IPA.  This 12oz 6.5% west coast IPA will be brewed in support of the North East Art Rock festival (NEARFest) 2011.  According to the Brew Works website, “Chatfield Manor 

is the title of a Mike Keneally song from the album, Sluggo! (1998). The song refers to the house of Mike’s manager and good friend Scott Chatfield, where Mike often writes and records his music.

Mike and Scott were so thrilled by having the title used for this year’s beer, that they decided to register chatfieldmanor.com with the intention to provide a free download of “Chatfield Manor” when the beer is first tapped at the Bethlehem Brew Works on NEARfest Weekend 2011.”  This beer will be available only at the Bethlehem Brew Works location.

Also today we see the new 12oz packaging for Devious Imperial Pumpkin Ale.  This was previously only available in 750ml bottles, so like many other Brew Works beers, they are now selling 12oz bottles.

Fegley’s Brew Works Blueberry Belch–Now in 12oz Bottles

FegleysBlueberryBelchHere's your first look at the new 12oz bottle packaging for Fegley's Brew Works Blueberry Belch. This has been a popular seasonal tap-only brew at the Brew Works so I'm excited to see it out in bottles for the rest of NEPA to enjoy. Fegley's uses 150 lbs of unfiltered blueberry puree in each 15bbl batch and the brew comes in at 4.2% ABV.

Fegley’s Brew Works–It’s Not My Alt!

BrewWorksLogoFrom Mike:

Now available in Bethlehem:
Our Altbier is a German style brown ale originating in Dusseldorf, and literally translate to "old beer". The creamy head of this copper hued beer leads to an aromatic hop presence, a subtle caramel flavor, and an ideal balance of hops and malt.  It's medium body produces a clean, crisp, and dry finish...the perfect session beer for this time of year. "It's Not My Alt!" 

On tap Today (Tuesday) in Bethlehem:
The invigorating smell of grapefruit...The fresh hop bitterness...The sweet malt finish...Brewed in the tradition of West Coast IPAs, we entangled tons of malt & tons of hops into the kettle to create this sensationally explosive ale. Could this be the hoppiest Brew Works beer yet? Hop Explosion goes on tap at BBW.

Coming Friday on tap in Allentown Only
and in Bottles available at all 3 locations:
Our Monkey Wrench Saison is back!  This dry, crisp, golden-colored ale is brewed to impart the secrets of the higher intelligence through its monolithic flavor. It is an outstanding example of a classic Saison Ale with refreshing hints of lemon and pepper and a snappy carbonated bite.
