Hi Folks! Summer 2017 is proving to be a great time for craft beer! At the end of June, we held the Official Launch of the brand-new Samuel Fraunces Ale, brewed by Flagship Brewing Co. of Staten Island. This golden ale has a lightly toasted flavour with soft floral and fruit notes. Established in 2013, Flagship have been brewing Unforgettable Beer in the ‘Forgotten Borough’ with the aim of breathing life back into the once thriving brewing industry of Staten Island. We’re delighted to have joined forces with them to bring you our new Samuel Fraunces Ale and we hope you love it just as much as we do!

               In July we hosted the co-founder of Birra Antoniana for a ‘Meet the Brewer’ style event. The occasion was held to celebrate the launch of their authentic Italian craft beers on U.S shores. Birra Antoniana have a Padua-based agricultural brewery with a focus on quality ingredients from the grain to the glass.  With the motto Feet in the Past and head to the Future…the Future of our Land, Birra Antoniana have managed to create a line of quality Italian-crafted beers dubbed as ‘the new taste of Italy’! We also welcomed Victory Brewing Company of Pennsylvania who featured their Summer Love. We think this refreshing and aromatic golden ale is perfect for hot Summer days.

                At the end of the month, Ommegang joined us on the 26th to host a Happy Hour event for their Fruition Wheat ale, ‘a slightly tart and fruity, hop-forward beer that’s exceptionally drinkable’. “Fruition is fermented with mango, kiwi, and passion fruit juices then dry-hopped with Citra and Cascade hops.” There was a great turnout as many of you joined us for a taste of Fruition and for a chance to get your hands of some Ommegang Brewery swag! On, July 27th, 5-7PM Flagship Brewing Co. were here to promo their Kill Van Kӧlsch, our July Lager of the Month. Kölsch beer is known for its light body and clean, crisp taste. Flagship’s Kölsch is ‘brewed with a nod to the old-world German processes and continues the tradition of delicate and balanced beer, which is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of palettes.’ Brewery reps were here to answer craft beer questions and to give some lucky guests some great Flagship swag!

As well as having a huge range of cold craft brews on draft, we also now have a brand-new air conditioning system so we’re cooler than ever! We look forward to seeing many of you throughout the rest of these hot  Summer days.
