CHOCOLATE TOWN

SPOONWOOD BREWING CHOCOLATE STOUT

Spoonwood In Motion: Find Us All Over Pittsburgh In December!

Spoonwood In Motion: Find Us All Over Pittsburgh In December! If there’s one thing that typically defines the holiday season for most people, it’s one word: busy. Shopping to be done, gifts to be wrapped, cookies to bake, parties to attend, family gatherings to coordinate and execute. Oh, and in the midst of all that…menial tasks like going to work …

In The Tank, Out The Tank (Vol. 3)

Turns out I was three for three on my predictions. We did, indeed, brew Good Tidings Belgian Christmas Ale, Chocolate Town Cream Stout, and Collapsium Barleywine. They will almost certainly be released in that order, beginning with Good Tidings on the first Wednesday in December. Barley Storm, our Winter Warmer, continues to rest patiently in the fermenter. It’s a big …

In The Tank, Out The Tank (Vol. 2)

In-the-Tank-Out-the-Tank-Icon

Since our last little secret rendezvous here in blogland, Astrid and The Stache have both gone to print, and Good Eye Sniper has run its course in the fermenter. This batch of Sniper is promising as ever, with a slightly lower ABV (8.3%) and a properly dank hops bill (including Citra, Sorachi Ace, Mosaic, et. al.). It will flow forth …
