UpCountry Brewing is tapping kegs on five new styles of beers this month!
October 12 - October 25
Chai Amber – 5.9% ABV, 28 IBU
Brewed with caramel malts, but not overwhelmingly malty, our Amber Ale has the
right balance of color, sweetness, and low bitterness–'true to style' of your typical
amber ale. The reserved hop usage of Cascade and Fuggle bring just enough
bitterness to balance the sweetness. We used a Chai blend to bring additional
flavors of black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and peppercorn, which
wonderfully compliments the base brew. Available 10/3
Nick’s Picks, Mae’s ESB – 6.0% ABV, 35 IBU
The first in our series collaboration with Nick’s Tavern & Deli in Clemson, SC!
This brew is pretty straightforward, featuring the revered Fuggle and herbaceous
Mt. Hood hops with toasted sugar and caramel notes.
Doughnut for a Snowman Donut Stout – 10% ABV, 28 IBU
Who doesn’t love donuts? We used six dozen Publix glazed donuts in the boil to
make this pastry stout extra sweet. This is definitely a beer for dessert. The use
of sugar and lactose, paired with the roastiness of chocolate malt and roasted
barley round this beer out into a rich and decadent brew.
Strange Brew Cream Ale – 5.9% ABV, 13 IBU
Enjoy the sweet profile of this easy drinking cream ale. The addition of flaked
corn gives a slightly creamy and smooth mouthfeel, while the low amount of hops
allow the malt to take the spotlight in this brew.
Pineapple Grenade Pineapple Jalapeño Wheat Beer – 4.4% ABV, 22 IBU
Our Pineapple Jalapeño Wheat Ale brings strong wheat flavors due to the grain
bill consisting of more than 50% wheat. The addition of over six pounds per
barrel of pineapple puree gives a touch of sweet fruit presence, while the
jalapeño brings a spicy kick. This combination, plus the use of Mandarina
Bavaria hops, creates a wonderfully refreshing and light drinking brew.
“Now that it’s actually cooling down outside, we are pumped to sit outside with a
cold, dark brew in hand,” says Head Brewer Bryan Bobo. “The Chai Amber
tastes like fall in a glass. And for the Donut Stout, we’re planning to throw a huge
Phish themed party for that, so stay tuned!”
