From this interview with Dan Carey.  Looks like the first beer in the new brewery-only R&D series is a lambic?!?!?   I might need someone to pick some up for me before GTOMW.  :wub:

Quote
How did you develop the yeast for your Belgians?

DC: It’s a blend, a bacterial fermentation. Our yeast is a standard ale yeast but it’s a souring fermentation. So it’s more akin to like a Rodenbach type of a beer. But, like I said, we’ve got a Lambic that’s started with two types of Brettanomyces, an ale yeast and a couple of different bacteria. That’s only going to be sold out of the brewery, though. That will be a kind of secret series where we only do a small amount-200 barrels. We’ll bottle it up and sell it out of the gift shop. That’ll be out this summer probably.

So this new series, this is different from the Unplugged series?

DC: Yeah. It’s a step up from that. It’s called the R+D Series because about a year ago we hired Randy Thiel. He was the brewmaster at Ommegang. He’s now our lab manager. So he and I are working together.


Edit:  Looks like Ben posted the interview, but still New Glarus Lambic!!

May 27, 2009    New Glarus Brewing Company Opens the Doors to their New Hilltop Brewery!

New Glarus Brewing Company Opens the Doors to their New Hilltop Brewery!

New Glarus, WI
May 27, 2009:

Deborah and Daniel Carey invite all of their Wisconsin friends to the highly anticipated Grand Opening of their new state of the art Hilltop Brewery June 13th. The public will finally be able to tour the new Brewery and Gift Shop as well as sample freshly brewed beers. Saturday afternoon The Jimmys will be performing their original Blues and R&B to welcome visitors, so bring your dancing shoes! Opening hours are 10:00 AM-5:00 PM. Tours are free.

New Glarus Brewing Company began breaking the rules in 1993 when it became the first brewery in the United States to be founded and run by a woman, the current company President, Deborah Carey. Beginning with just two beers, New Glarus has gone on to brew over 50 different beer styles. Increased demand for these unique brews has led to a 10% increase in sales this year alone, so rest assured that their original Riverside Brewery will continue brewing new and exciting beers. The new Hilltop Brewery added 100,000 barrels of capacity to the 30,000 barrels already produced at the Riverside Brewery. They anticipate sales of over 80,000 barrels in 2009, all sold exclusively in Wisconsin.

Those anxious for a look at the Hilltop Brewery may explore the $20 million expansion at their leisure everyday between 10 and 4:00. The Hilltop Garden offers a relaxing environment to enjoy samples of New Glarus beers afterwards. For those that wish to take a taste of New Glarus Brewing Co. home with them, the gift shop will also be open until 5:00 PM. Or head into the Village and enjoy New Glarus beers with your friends under the tent as the New Glarus Polka Fest. Deborah and Daniel invite their friends to explore the quaint Village of New Glarus, including the many ethnic shops and top quality restaurants.

Organic Revolution bottles will now contain the USDA seal.

-----

In November of 2008, in a question that may shock many, New Glarus Brewing Company asked 'What would you like us to brew for you?' The more popular response by their fans has led to the release of their latest seasonal offering, 'Yokel'.

New Glarus Brewing Company is an unusual company. Run by a husband and wife team, and only distributing in Wisconsin, New Glarus Brewing Company surprises many. Rarely would a company allow their fans to contribute in such a direct way to the products that they are offered. But New Glarus Brewing Company does, having a vote each year to allow their fans to determine which beers they would like brewed for them, and is the only company in Wisconsin to do so. The results of that vote last year have happily led here, to New Glarus Brewing Company's 'Yokel'.

Yokel is a "Zwickel bier". The term "Zwickel" comes from the German word referring to the “Tap on a Beer Vat”. Zwickel Bier is therefore a beer served directly from a lager tank with no other processing ..... as fresh and natural as a lager beer can get. Being served beer directly from the lager tank is traditionally a special privilege reserved for those lucky enough to be favored by the brewmaster. New Glarus Brewing Company extends this privilege to all their fans with Yokel, one of the most voted for brews in the vote for this year's line up in November of 2008.

Yokel is inspired by the German traditions of small village breweries – simple and pure beer. A whole beer straight from the tanks, it is smooth, unfiltered, and without pretense. Wisconsin, German, and English barleys and the finest Bavarian hops combine in classic German brewing methods to create this golden lager. Additionally, Yokel is naturally cloudy and rich in vitamins from the yeast. Expect this beer to be smooth, as well as rich and malty. It is the perfect companion for a hot summer day. Remember, 'Buy Local, Drink Yokel'.

A nice little info blurb from Dan Carey posted on RB! Some exciting stuff coming out soon.

Quote
Hello Fellow Beer Geeks,
Here’s what’s happening in New Glarus
(1) Golden Ale is in fact for sale now in our Gift Shop only. It’s an ale fermented with Brett Yeast and made with Maris Otter Malt and Styrian Golding Hops. I really hope you all like it! Why $8 for a 500 ml bottle? Those of you that know us know that we strive to be really fair with our pricing so I hope you understand .... the 500 ml Euro Bottles are expensive plus the beer was really difficult to make. We devoted a great deal of time to making it. Really a labor of love
(2) We did in fact make 160 bbls of it so don’t stress about it running out soon. Please come by for a visit when you can.
(3) Next in the Unplugged Series is an "Old English Porter". It’s based on the writings of Wheeler about what the Entire Porter of 1870’s London tasted like. This beer is dark brown and slightly sour. It’s an Historical Recreation so I hope you all find it interesting! It is definietly not a modern style Porter. Think of a cross between a Belgian Sour Brown and an English Brown Porter. Did you know that the original London Porter was the original inspiration for the Belgian Sour Brown?
(4) Next Unplugged after that will be a "Wisconsin Cranberry Ale". I know that sounds whimmpy but it should be really good .... even for beer geeks! It’s a sour ale brewed with Brett, Acetic and Lactic Bacteria (some indigenous to our area .... I selected them from our environemnt!)and aged in Oak with cranberries. It was inspired by the fruit lamics of Belgium but, since I’m not in Belgium, it’s an American Beer.
(5) Next R&D Beer is going to be in the Lambic Style (but I won’t call it a Lambic out of respect for my friends in Belgium). I had hoped to have it done by end of Summer but I am not sure yet. Lambics are difficult to make and the bacteria really are in charge. When they say it’s ready we will bottle. I don’t know when they will be. I’m guessing you guys want it to be true to style (read "sour and Brett’y)so I need to wait until it’s right!
Thanks for all of Your Kind Words. Come and see us at our new brewery.
Cheers,
Daniel Carey
Brewmaster

Think a big part of that is the limited availability that always drives ratings up?

New Glarus Brewing Company's Old English Porter

New Glarus, WI
July 30th, 2009:
 
New Glarus Brewing Company continues to demonstrate that the art and science of brewing go hand in hand. The innovative "Porter" style beer of 1870's England was a notable example of that unity and Dan Carey (Diploma Master Brewer, New Glarus Brewing Company) has re-created that 'Old English Porter' with his newest Unplugged Series release.

Throughout the Industrial Revolution England was full of new brewing methods and revelations. This was when brewing was first combined with science. Due to the rapid scientific advances in chemistry coupled with new technologies (such as accurate thermometers), it was widely recognized that brewing was a task that, in order to be done well, must be done by someone not only skilled in the art of brewing, but also scientifically knowledgeable.

The Porter's invention in England was a revolution for the brewing industry. Prior to this time Porter beer was not aged by the brewer, it was aged at the tavern. The Porter's particularly tart characteristics improved with age, and this resulted in it's excellent traveling capabilities and also allowed it to be brewed in large batches. Both of these attributes made this style readily available, leading to it's immense popularity with the working class. It is from these working people, the Porters, that the name of this style originates. Strikingly enough, this is similar to the way in which the Green Bay Packers name originates with the meat packers of Wisconsin. In honor of this fusion of science and brewing in England, New Glarus Brewing Company's Dan Carey has created his most recent Unplugged Series brew, 'Old English Porter'.

'Old English Porter' offers a unique interpretation of this classic beer style. The slightly roasted malt character combines with a touch of sweetness and wine like acidity that was popular in Porters of this period. To achieve this, it was brewed with mostly floor malted English malts which include the famed pale ale malt, Maris Otter. A touch of smoked malt produced by Briess Malting Company (of Chilton, Wisconsin) was also used, adding interesting depth to the character of this brew. To add to the authenticity of this brew, half of the batch went through a souring fermentation in the traditional way. This also helps to promote the characteristic wine-like acidity. Finally, the beer was aged on wood to extract sweetness from toasted oak. The end result, 'Old English Porter', is a tasteful tribute and a welcome addition to this ever changing and revolutionary beer style. Like all of the Unplugged Series, this 'Old English Porter' is a one-time limited release, which you can find in stores and taverns throughout Wisconsin.

Hello All,
To help avoid confusion, our New Glarus Old English Porter is supposed to be sour. This beer was inspired by the writings of Graham Wheeler, a noted English Beer Historian. Mr. Wheeler describes the original Porters of the 1800's as: "... simply a mixture of two brown beers. The only characteristic that set the porter apart from any other beer of the day was that porter was deliberately soured by adding a percentage of sour beer to freshly brewed beer. The original porters were not, as is commonly supposed, jet-black in colour, but a translucent brown. They had a rich, smoky flavor derived from the use of brown malt and a winey aftertang produced by the deliberate souring, highly regarded by Londoners." Our interpretations is a Brown Porter based on the style popular in 1870's London. Half of the batch went through a souring fermentation, in the traditional way, to promote the characteristic wine-like acidity. The beer was aged on wood to extract sweetness from toasted oak.
Cheers,
Daniel Carey

Tasty beer for sure.  Without an IPA in the line-up, I'm much less likely to pick up one of their beers... not that I do on ANY kind of regular basis.  Ah, well.  Plenty of fish in teh sea.

No IPA sucks.  Gonna pass on the Honey Bock.  Glad to see Crack's Wheat but sucks that it's seasonal.  Not impressed at all.  Do they really need 2 seasonal bocks right in a row?  As much as I love the style I'm gonna pass on the honey bock and the other one doesn't really intrigue me that much.  Here's to hoping next year's lineup is better.

Yeah, I wished they had dumped the Stone Soup instead of the IPA.  Never liked that one.  I'm going to miss keg Dancing Man too  :thumbdown:

I like Stone Soup but I didn't see the need for both Dancing Man and Stone Soup both to be in the lineup since they're very similar.  Add Black Wheat and it was a bit much.  Actually sad to see Black Wheat go now that I look at the lineup.  Liked it a lot.  Bit different from the normal wheat beer.  Looks like we need to take away some people's voting privileges for next year's lineup.  Looks like none of the cool sounding beers from the voting form made the cut either.

If Cabin Fever is anything like Norski was then thee might be a bright spot. Otherwise I don't see buying any of these for myself.

Why is there only six 'year round' beers listed when there is eight currently? More to announce hopefully. 7 seasonals is the same as now though.

Im guessing its not a complete list. The new brewery was supposed to crank up production of the cow.

The 2010 beer schedule is up (although not labeled as such).  Pretty lame compared to last year.

Laughable...HA!

What a snoozer of a lineup.

Wait, this isn't close to everything. Still, the whole thing was pretty sad.

Yeah they said it's a work in progress.  Still sad to lose some old favorites.  I foresee myself buying less New Glarus this coming year.
