More News From Saint Arnolds

This release is a fine Weizenbock: malty, with hints of cloves, banana and chocolate. The recipe is from Austin homebrewer Kerry Martin's winning entry at this year's Big Batch Brew Bash. Our distributor will begin shipping this to stores on Tuesday, September 23, so come up with your "how to get your hands on a six pack" strategy now!

I noticed your post about St. Arnold's Divine #7, and I thought you might be interested in The Flying Saucer's Fall Brew Fests in Austin and Fort Worth, both of which will feature the #7 and some of the other beers you've recently posted about.

The Flying Saucer will host its first annual Fall Brew Fest on Saturday, Oct. 4 from noon to 10 p.m. at Triangle Park in Austin and its third annual Fall Brew Fest in Fort Worth on Saturday, Oct. 11 from noon to 10 p.m. in the Saucer’s parking lot in Sundance Square.

The Fall Brew Fest will feature five beer tents, each with crafted brews chosen by The Flying Saucer’s own resident beer guru, Keith Schlabs. Featured beers will include rare special releases and cask-conditioned ales. The Austin event also will feature a Frisbee® Golf tournament and live music. For $15, event goers will receive a commemorative glass and tasting card that can be redeemed for a sampling of 10 of the 20 featured beers. Admission to the events is free.

The events will have beers to satisfy everyone, from the casual drinker to the hard-core beer enthusiast, including some that aren’t often available in the Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex areas. Some of the notable beers that will be at both events are the St. Arnold Devine #7, Ayinger Oktoberfest, Dogfish Head’s Punkin Ale, Avery Brewing Company’s The Kaiser, Sierra Nevada Harvest Southern Hemisphere fresh hop ale, Live Oak Dry-Hopped Cask-Conditioned IPA, Stone Brewing Company’s Smoked Porter and the Victory Brewing Company’s Storm King Imperial Stout draught. The Fort Worth fest also will feature the Rahr & Sons Blind Salamander Pale and the Real Ale Shade Grown Coffee Porter, which is cask-conditioned, and at 1 p.m., the Fort Worth event will have a ceremonial tapping of the Real Ale Cask-Conditioned Dunkel Roggenbier.

I'd be happy to send you more information, if you're interested.
