Alcohol Spotlight: Small Town Brewery Takes Freshness to New Heights with Not Your Father’s Mountain Ale

 

 

WAUCONDA, Ill., July 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- It's summer and sizzling—the time when most Americans flock to the mountains, ocean or poolside to beat the heat. And starting today, Small Town Brewery serves up ice-cold refreshment with the introduction of Not Your Father's Mountain Ale, from America's Favorite Flavored Brewing Company.

The brand new brew joins category leader, Not Your Father's Root Beer, to round out its portfolio of artisanal flavors that also includes Not Your Father's Vanilla Cream Ale and Not Your Father's Ginger Ale.

Not Your Father's Mountain Ale is a bold, invigorating brew made with a fresh, crisp finish and notes of citrus, reminiscent of a clear alpine day. It is lightly carbonated and comes packaged in a standout green glass bottle and label.

"At Small Town Brewery, we don't chase trends; we create them," said Gleb Lifshits, Vice President, Small Town Brewery. "As the pioneer of the category, we are always looking for ways to innovate and meet our consumers' evolving needs. Anticipation for Not Your Father's Mountain Ale has been unprecedented, and we look forward to another record-breaking year ahead," he added.

Not Your Father's Mountain Ale has an ABV of 5.0% and will be available at all major US retailers in six-packs of 12 oz. bottles as well as 24 oz. individual cans, for a retail price of $10.99 and $2.75, respectively.

 

About Small Town Brewery

After home brewing for over two decades, Tim Kovac founded Small Town Brewery in 2010. Kovac's brewing focus developed as he unearthed the lore of his unique family brewing history, which dates back to the 17th century. The story of his ancestor's brewing practices - which included gruit-based recipes that use herbs, flowers, roots and berries - have inspired Small Town's innovative offerings that pay homage to the roots of modern brewing.  Small Town uses unique, Not Your Everyday ingredients to create specialty beers with an unmistakable taste of nostalgia.

Packaging Spotlight: Bowler Brilliant Ale & Bowler IPA

 

 

Designed by

KINETIQ Design Bureau and Sergey Poluhin

Sain Petersburg, Russian Federation

 

Brief

We created a new brand identity for Bowler and Bowler IPA, Gletcher Brewery's craft ales. Our clients wanted to develop an original design for the British-style ales, representing classic taste in a modern context. The beer naming was inspired by black bowler, a wide known symbol of British style. Logo characters - amber fox for Bowler and green Indian crocodile for Bowler IPA - are memorable and attractive for the retail customers.

Though the characters are united by a traditional tattoo style, they have their own personalities which reflect the peculiarities of each beer taste — classic, but at the same time a little rowdy and adventurous for Bowler, and brutal, rebellious, hard for Bowler IPA. The beers have been already warmly welcomed by craft beer lovers. Brands are now distributed through HoReca channels, as well as in retail.

About the company

At Blue Moon Brewing Company®, we believe brewing is an art. And it’s been that way since our head brewmaster and founder, Keith Villa, first created Blue Moon® Belgian White Belgian-Style Wheat Ale back in 1995 in downtown Denver, Colorado.

It all started with Keith’s idea to craft a beer inspired by the flavorful Belgian Wits that he enjoyed while studying brewing in Belgium. He brewed his interpretation using the highest quality ingredients like Valencia orange peel, versus the traditional tart Curaçao orange peel, for a subtle sweetness. Then he added oats and wheat to create a smooth, creamy finish that is inviting to the palate. As a final touch, he garnished the beer with an orange slice to heighten the citrus aroma and taste.

Beer Spotlight: Narrangansett Lovecraft Honey Ale

 

 

“When the brewery was shut down, the spirit of Narragansett never died; it went underground, to a deep and dark place. Since reclaiming our beer in 2005, we’ve worked hard to stay true to our roots. But after being in that dungeon for so long, we came back with some baggage. Just like the nameless protagonist from “The Outsider”, we emerged in the light a little different. A little…strange. Think of this brew as our bold, our obscure, our tampered-with mind. It won’t be for everyone, and if it isn’t for you, you’ll know exactly who it IS for. This is OUR Lovecraft.” – Mark Hellendrung

Roll out the Barrel: 7% Alcohol by Volume and 30 IBUs. The Lovecraft Honey Ale draws its rich, malt flavor from the featured Honey Malt. It will be available in 16oz Tall Boys as well as a very limited run for tap.

Quality Supreme
: Brewed in collaboration with Sean Larkin, Head Brewmaster for Narragansett and owner of Revival Brewing, Lovecraft Honey Ale is made with a base of honey malt and finished with a touch of hops, producing a bold yet sweet honey-colored ale.

Taste & Enjoy: The spirit of alchemy and mischievous behavior is alive in this brew. Backboned by the combination of five pale malts, the beer opens up with a hint of honey sweetness, then turns with a herbal hop crescendo and a smooth finish. The Lovecraft Honey Ale was inspired by the Space Mead consumed by winged Byakhee as protection from “interstellar space travel” in Lovecraft’s “The Festival”. Pretty awesome, right?

The History: Born in 1890, the same year that Narragansett Beer was founded, H.P. Lovecraft spent the majority of his life in Providence as a struggling author, only achieving literary fame posthumously. Commonly referred to as the “Father of Modern Horror,” he is often cited as an influence on other notable authors and artists from Stephen King to Metallica to Ridley Scott. H.P. Lovecraft is best known for creating Cthulhu, a fictional deity described as being part man, part dragon and part octopus. It is this creature that inspired the Cthulhu Mythos, a cultural lore and shared fictional universe of Lovecraft’s successors.

The label artwork for Lovecraft Honey Ale was designed by Providence-based artist AJ Paglia.

 

 

 
About the Company
Narragansett Beer is New England’s oldest beer, founded in 1890. It was the #1 beer New England from the 1890’s through the 1970’s and the official beer of the Red Sox for over 30 years. It’s now the 45th largest brewing company in America and the fastest growing in the Northeast. Our flagship lager was winner of the Bronze Medal at the 2008 World Beer Cup and First Place at the Great International Beer Festival in 2010.
