I can't remember what he charges for growlers there.  Do you have some with you?  I have about 3 dozen of them in my basement if you need one.

I don't have any growlers here with me.  I might take you up on that.  Though I'm only in town until next Saturday. But then again I do need to go on a beer run there.  Decisions decisions...

That growler was as good as empty as soon as I poured the first glass. Real good stuff! Finished it off last night with a friend.  Want me to drop the empty back off sometime this week?

Nah ... keep it or recycle it.  I've got way more than I could possibly ever use.

Good info, mang.

I was going to buy bottles at Club Liquor, but I'll try it from a growler instead.

Belgian Blonde has been around for a while.  It's even been bottled.  We had a keg at the pre-party too.

Hey everyone - wanted to give some updates as far as the Anniversary Party and beer releases.

Anniversary Party will again be the last Saturday in January (28th). Same gig as last year - bands, food for sale to benefit the Jensen Center (local community center), raffles, etc. We will be running more shuttles this year to accomodate the masses. We will release Peruvian Morning that day and a new beer celebrating our 14th Anniversary (1414 - a big stout aged 14 months in 14 yr old barrels). We will have more details and updates over the next two months.

Exodus is in the bottle - we are waiting for it to condition properly then it will be released. It looks like the week after Thanksgiving it will be going to distributors. We only did 1500 so most stores will be lucky to get a case (6 bottles/cs). Some of this will make our satellite distributors in other states as well. We are attempting to compile a list of all the stores that will receive it and how much they are getting - if this list does happen we will link it to our website / fb pages.

Bourbon Barrel Stout will be released over the first three weeks of December so it is all in stores before Christmas - Kosmyk Charlie's Y2K Catastrophe Ale will be making it's return after two years of lapse! Look for that at the same time as BBS.

Bourbon Barrel Barleywine will be released in early January, and Bourbon Barrel Cherry Stout in February.

All of these beers in some amount will be making the out of state distributors that we have this year.

Love the guys and love their beer but I wish they'd take a page out of New Glarus' play book and concentrate on their local customers. 

NONE of this kind of stuff should leave the state, until they are able to produce enough to completely satisfy local demand.

This makes me worry a little about the availability of all of their special releases this season.

That's beer: Crafting the right combination sets Central Waters brews apart By Sara Bredesen | Regional Editor The Country Today | 0 comments

AMHERST - "Water, barley, yeast and hops. That's it. That's beer," said Paul Graham, co-owner of Central Waters Brewing Co. in Amherst.

What Graham didn't say is that it takes creativity, attention to detail and an intimate knowledge of how each ingredient interacts with the others to craft the company's 18 or so unique brews.

Doing it successfully for 13 years is what has moved Central Waters from a two-man operation in a rundown 2,500-square foot building in Junction City to an energy-efficient 15,000-square-foot structure and an eye on more growth in the Amherst Industrial Park.

"I remember being in college sitting out in the garage with my business partner, Anello (Mollica), brewing a batch of beer saying, ‘Man if we could do this as a living, that would be so cool.' The cards just fell right," Graham said. "Young and dumb, but if you think about it, isn't that everybody's dream? If you could take the one thing you love doing and turn it into a full-time job, be your own boss ... "

In 1998, Graham got his dream and was brought on as a brewer by two friends who set up shop on a shoestring in the cramped Junction City space. He and one of the owners ran the show.

"We did everything back then, from making it to bottling it to actually delivering it in the beds of our pickups," he said. "It was a rough go."

The razor-thin profit margin on about 750 barrels of beer production - one barrel equals 31 gallons - and only $100,000 in sales meant little was getting banked at the end of the year. It was either go big or go home, and the others went home, Graham said. He bought the company in 2001 with another partner and ran it for five more years in Junction City.

The partnership shifted again in 2006, and a year later, he and his garage buddy, Mollica, opened up in a new 7,500-square-foot building in Amherst. They were able to double production to 1,500 barrels.

The building has been expanded twice more, and today is a 30-barrel brew house (930-gallon brew vat) with six 30-barrel fermenters, six 60-barrel fermenters and one 90-barrel fermenter. Production is up to about 8,000 barrels a year with a goal of 12,000 in 2012. Two more 90-barrel fermenters are expected to go online in the next few months, Graham said.

"It's a hobby gone out of control," he added, laughing.

Changing demand

At the heart of it all is the beer.

"For a long time beer was the lower-class drink of choice," Graham said. "I know it's stereotypical, but I think that preconceived notion that goes with beer is quickly fading. Beer is morphing away from what the American standard used to be of this fizzy yellow stuff to extremely complex, high-quality stuff."

It takes two to four years to develop a beer, and the company is putting its focus on the high-end brews. One of them is the newly released Exodus that is aged 18 months in barrels, is corked like a fine Champagne and will sell for $12 a bottle. Graham said it is important to maintain quality in the flagship beers but always be ready with the next new thing.

"Being a craft brewer, you understand that most of your fans, most of your consumers, are not necessarily brand loyal. They're going to try whatever is different, whatever is new, whatever they haven't tried before," he said. "Variety really is the spice of life for the craft beer drinker."

Other Central Waters beers already available in stores and bars in Wisconsin, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Rochester and Chicago come with descriptive names like Mud Puppy Porter, Shine On, Whitewater Weisen, Ouisconsing Red Ale, Glacial Trail IPA, and a 2008 Great America Beer Festival gold medal winner Bourbon Barrel Barleywine.

A barrel building was put up last year that can hold up to 500 oak casks that exude the heavy perfume of Kentucky bourbon. Graham said about 10 percent of last year's production is steeping in there, slowly becoming Bourbon Barrel Cherry Stout.

Energy savings

Graham said he hears companies tout their "green" philosophies, but he thinks it's overused marketing hype. Despite keeping their own efforts low-key, Central Waters in May was named the state's first Green Tier brewery by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

"We do this for us, not for anybody else," Graham said.

The Amherst building is run with energy-efficient lighting, pump motors and radiant in-floor heat, with a portion of both its process heat and electricity coming from two arrays of solar panels. Much of the stainless steel equipment is refurbished, and the guest tap room is decorated with recycled boards and tin from a nearby farm.

"I don't know if people realize that beer is an agricultural product. You use nothing but plants and water and a living organism to ferment them," Graham said. "Ninety percent of the fluctuation in our business is actually dependent on agricultural markets."

The company is trying to directly source some of its raw material. Barley is purchased monthly in 25-ton loads, and some of it is from an organic grower just a few miles down the road. The company also is part of a five-member brewery group, the Midwest Hops and Barley Cooperative, putting seed money into a pool to offset startup costs for hops growing.

"We still can't put all our eggs in one basket, but what we can do is build cushions and work with it so we can get a very large portion from (Wisconsin)," Graham said.

Waste grain from the brewing process is used as a soil amendment at a nearby community-supported-agriculture garden, and a small amount ends up as cattle feed.

"We originally implemented these initiatives because we believe in sustainability, but we quickly saw the benefits in energy savings these changes made," Mollica said last spring. "Hopefully, other businesses, large and small, see us as a small business that found a way to do these things and save money in the long run, and we can be role models for them."

There could be a lot of eyes on them as craft brewing faces a production bubble of sorts.

According to the Brewers Association, in the first half of this year craft brew sales rose 15 percent in dollars and 14 percent by volume, compared with growth of 12 percent and 9 percent respectively in the same period of 2010.

"The industry is scaring me a little bit right now," Graham said. "There's a lot of growth in our sector, but there's also a lot of breweries slated to open."

As of June, 725 craft breweries were on tap to open, compared with 389 in June last year. There were fewer than 100 craft breweries in the country 30 years ago, and today there are 1,740, according to the Brewers Association. More than 70 of them are in Wisconsin.

"Just tapped a collaberation from Central Waters/Local Option (Chicago) called Le Petite Morts. Here's how it's described: "A difficult beer to describe, but it is 8.3% alcohol, a very deep mahogany color, with a very subtle belgian ester profile on the nose. This flavor carries through the palate, a bit of smoky caramel, with a hint of the banana like esters from the belgian yeast. I wouldnt go so far as to call this a dubbel, the yeast is a mixture of belgian yeast and american ale yeast."

We have the only barrel in the GB area.

$9.99/growler."

We have received a few comments about off flavors in this years Peruvian Morning. In our own tests at the brewery, we have seen some undesirable flavors as well. We are aware of the situation, and are currently investigating it. In the meantime, we are currently working out the logistics of a voluntary recall for those who feel they would like to do so. We stand behind the quality of our beers and will do what we can to make this right by everyone. Stay tuned for details as we work out them out, and thank you for your patience and understanding.

Regarding Peruvian Morning returns at the Anniversary Party this weekend, I just received this email....


Hello!

Just to confirm with everyone, your name will be on a list at our 'to go' beer area with the number of credits that has been issued to you. You received one credit for each 4 pack of Peruvian Morning. Each credit will be good for EITHER :

ONE four pack
ONE six pack
ONE bottle of 15 (Anniversary Beer)

These amounts will not count against your case limit if a case limit applies to the beer you are purchasing.

If someone else is picking up your beer, you have already given us that persons name, they should use THEIR name, NOT yours, when looking for the credit. It will be up to you to remember how much your credit was, at this point your credit has already been moved to that person's name.

Thanks again for your support! See ya Saturday!

Man I really hope people didnt take advantage of them doing this and lie about how much they purchased or if they didnt buy any and said they did.

Party details

Quote
OK Folks, here it is...the details...

We will not be accepting credit cards, but there will be an ATM on site!

Shuttles will start picking up in Stevens Point at 2:30, they will run continuously, so please be patient if you didn't get on the first one!

Music starts around 3:30, music will end around 11 PM when we will start making sure people are leaving and getting on the shuttles.

There is no cover charge and this is not a ticketed event!

Four Pack sales will include Peruvian Morning, Bourbon Barrel Barleywine, Bourbon Barrel Cherry Stout with no limit on anything except Cherry Stout, which will have a 6 four pack limit, price is $14 per four pack.

We will be selling 15, the much anticipated follow up to our Gold Medal winning 1414. There are extremely limited quantities of this beer, as such there is a 4 bottle limit on this one! 22 oz bottles, $15 per bottle. We reserve the right to increase or decrease the limits on this as the night goes on!

To answer the rumors, 15 is 1414, aged in the barrel for an extra year, so 26 months on oak. Yes, I think it is better than 1414.

Doors open at 3 firm! If you come early, it will likely be cold, so be prepared! All sales will happen in a heated environment (we will have a heated tent attached to the building).

Pints will be $4 each, food will be for sale as well.

This, my friends, is gonna be fun.
Dan
