The aroma alone sounds like something I'd wear as perfume.

Play your cards right, and you just might get the chance.

I'm going to go Thursday after work to sample some of these and see if there is anything worth filling up a growler.   :banned:

Bison has been a slacker lately (or just recovering from MN, perhaps?), so I had to go to Titletown at lunch and try these new beers. In order of preference ...

Bamberg Brew is a smoked lager. Roasted Vienna malt provides the smokiness, I believe. It's smooth and tasty. Similar to Fort Collins Z Lager.

Rackers Ale is a wet hop harvest ale. Not much nose at all, and the taste only slightly better. I was expecting a hop blast, but it's rather smooth and sweet. My backyard-grown hops are in this brew. Not enough evidently.

Mulligan Brew is a pale ale, maybe? Initial hop bite with a bitterness that lingers quite a while. OK, but nothing to rave about.

Drink on people ...

I am not. My brewing buddy and I just brought in some of our hops (Willamette) for this batch. Titletown is open to non-Rackers contributing, so we did.

"A Slew of New Brew:  Today at Titletown we're tapping TWO new beers. Both are named for the brand new street in front of our building.

The first is Pearl Street Amber Weizen, a "dunkel" (dark) style wheat beer. We re-used the yeast from Dousman Street Wheat to make it, and it shares the clove-like spice and light vanilla flavor of Dousman Street Wheat, but is darker and maltier.

Or if you're into the very dark, we tapped Blacktop Baltic, a baltic-style porter. Black, roasty and strong (over 8%) with a very smooth flavor and a light alcohol warmth.

PLUS, this Friday (Halloween) we plan to tap Smashing Pumpkin. We used 3 times as many pumpkins as last year and Kurt did a great job roasting them for us, so a lot of people have been looking forward to that.

David, your brewer"

Peat's Good Ale

This creamy red-brown Scottish-style "90 Shilling" ale has flavors of rich malt, dark caramel, fresh bread, and fruit as well as bits of peat smoke and roasted barley which balance its semi-sweet finish.

I've been drinking a lot of their Baltic Porter ... the Bamberg brew was solid ... before that the Pullman Porter was good ... and I think the Stout, IPA, and Alt are all decent examples of the style.

But I don't think they are going to tap a 2 year old IPA anytime soon.   :mellow:

Hop Monster

Hop lovers rejoice! The recent hop harvest was an excellent one, so we thought we'd celebrate with an Imperial IPA!

This beer is bursting with grapefruit-like hops, which we added in every way we know how to add hops. In all, there are almost 6 pounds of hops in every barrel.

Our new "Hop Monster" smacks you in the nose with pungent, resinous, citrus-like American hops, awakens taste buds you didn't know you had with absurd amounts of hop bitterness and flavor, then mercifully soothes your palate with its clean, dry finish so you can come back for more.

It's strong (9.2% ABV) so anchor yourself to that barstool well!

Got a growler of Titletown Hop Monster DIPA last night and enjoyed some during the hoops games.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. It sure smacks you in the head with hop taste (and grapefruit aroma), but it has some balance, too. I downed three pints, and it never stopped being enjoyable.

I prefer stouts and porters, so I'm not an expert on DIPAs. But, this one worked for me. Not stellar (HopSlam), but solid. I'm curious to hear what other experienced drinkers think.

had a sample of the Hop Monster at dinner last night

pretty good. better than any other beer i've had there.

like severstad said the hops definitely are punchy. and the grapefruit is tart. but it's good.

9.2%, which is kinda shocking for a beer around here.

had a sample of the Hop Monster at dinner last night

pretty good. better than any other beer i've had there.

like severstad said the hops definitely are punchy. and the grapefruit is tart. but it's good.

9.2%, which is kinda shocking for a beer around here.

Why only a sample?

don't like beer with food. gotta have either water, milk or cola.

Had one Friday, thought it was pretty good.

Glad you guys liked it, too. Good to know I wasn't tasting something that wasn't there.

Growler was $14, which isn't that bad for a tasty 9% IPA. Gang, I think we should make an effort to praise Titletown on this one. Perhaps they'll make more beer with balls and taste.

Wondered how much they would be charging for it.  The imperial pints were just $1 more than the regular beers - $5.50

I also had the Maibock and that was decent, too.

They still have that stack of oak barrels filled with barleywine aging upstairs too.  Kind of expected to see that over the winter.  :shrug:

Last time I mentioned the barrels to the brewer (October?), he said the barleywine was shaping up nicely, but it wasn't ready. Now, six months later, perhaps it's close to being tapped.

Just a quick note to let you know we've tapped another fresh ale at Titletown. It's a hybrid of the American Rye, German Altbier, and English Brown Porter styles, aptly named "Rye Not?" You'll have to try it to see what this might taste like, but "smooth", "grainy", and "balanced" are words that come to mind.

Ran into the owner of Titletown, and one of his brewers, after Beer Wars last night. Of course, I asked about the Barrel-Aged Barleywine, and it just so happened that they sampled it earlier in the day.

Their plan is to blend this with non-aged barleywine and release a keg every quarter during the year. A sort of mini-celebration every few months, which seems cool to me. Now, they just need to promote it properly and let beer geeks know it's available. This could increase Titletown's credibility quite a bit if executed right. And the beer tastes good.

I hope I'm wrong, but this makes me think it didn't turn out very good.   :(

I'm going to head over there after work today to check out the new "Rye Not?" ... I think they already have another new one tapped now, too.

This one sounds a little odd.  :blink:

The "Rye Not?" is actually pretty damn good ... kind of a rye brown ale.   :thumbup:

Also tried their newest tapping - Midas' Well, a Belgian strong pale ale (8.5% ABV).  This one was "meh" ... too sweet for me.  They really need to give up on trying Belgian styles.

Finally, Hop Monster IIPA (9.4% ABV) is still tasty.   :thumbup:

And GFB happy hour prices at the bar ... 2.50 imperial pints for the Rye and Midas', and 3.50 for the IIPA.

"After a brief hiatus, dark roasty beer has returned to Titletown Brewing Company as this year's Pullman Porter.  We imported everything but the water from the UK so we could create an authentic Robust English Porter."

I liked this one last year.  I'll report back when I've tried the new batch.
