I think Target may want a word with them re: the arrow logo.

I saw there were tix available for the opening but didn't have the motivation to go. Sounds like it would have been fun.

An artist fellow I know did their Berliner Weisse label, and holy hell it's awesome. Putting all these these trapper keeper labels to shame, shame I tell you.



Also love how the local laws made them divest ownership of their bar to open a brewery. Hooray for antiquated laws.
What about Revolution? :shuked:

Have heard a lot of good things about their berliners.  I had the Machine APA and it was quite nice.  Looking forward to trying more of their stuff.

Drinking Jungle Boogie now, it's solid. Puts Alpha King to shame almost.
Huge juicyfruit aroma with papaya and gummi peach rings, and a tropical taste with some bitter tea and hop grassiness in the aftertaste.  :thumbup:

Thinking about getting some more already... considering it says "pale wheat ale brewed with tea" on the label, it might be more of a sleeper hit. I think it's a year-round thing, but not positive what their brew schedule is like. If it's around in May i'll bring some :thumbup:

I'm digging these guys a lot.  All 3 of the Berliners have been very good.  The Machine is a good pale as well.  Looking forward to trying more, although I'm staying away from the weird shit like the pho beer and that one posted above.

It used to be that when I asked a bar if they had sour beer, I'd mainly get weird looks. Occasionally a bartender would tell me things like "Yeah, that would never sell." Three years later and they are everywhere. And there are some incredible locally brewed examples like Marz Brewing's Duchess De Bridgeport.

The name is awesome because it's not only a play on the first sour beer that made me fall in love with the style— The Duchesse de Bourgogne— but it also is a tribute to local culture. The eponymous duchess here on the label is local legend Maria Marszewski, who is in her own way a duchess, presiding over the renowned bar Maria's in Bridgeport.

Flavor-wise it shares much with Flanders Reds like Duchesse de Bourgogne or Cuvee De Jacobin's Rouge, though the label describes this beer as a Sour Red Ale. And of course the main shared characteristic is the delightful sour cherry tartness with a beautiful ruby red color, though it's a bit hoppier and has a much thicker body. And at 6.8% ABV it is substantially more alcoholic than traditional Flanders Reds, which range from 5-6%.

I almost thought that was your review.

But I disagree.  It is just a ruby Berliner.  At least the one I tried.

Double Jungle Boogie was tasty.  The gose was decent.  Haven't tried the Duchess de Bridgeport yet.

That is good to know.  I was thinking of trying to track one down.  I think most "quick sours" don't have the same character as blended or aged sours.

The first batch with the waxed bottles was terrible, the 2nd batch of unwaxed bottles was a little better but still not very good. To compare it to traditional Flanders Red is almost laughable. No barrel aging was involved, just kettle souring and spiked with lacto pretty much. No complexity or depth to it, the bottle I bought tasted like rotten fruit cocktail out of the can.

Dill Berliner Weiss and Nigerian lager released today. Really dug the Berliner, the other one not so much. Super bitter kola nut/root, one dimensional.

Laughed out loud earlier today looking at their instagram, some "budding designer" commented on some random photo offering design help, rebranding, etc. (which they probably do on every brewer's instagram, in between making duckface selfies)
If there's one thing Marz doesn't need, it's a new designer. :facepalm: :rolleyes:
