Real Ale Stuff

From Real Ale:

We've been putting the final touches on the plans for our upcoming expansion project. If all goes according to plan, in the next few months we'll proceed with the construction of a new warehouse and a new packaging hall.

We are also pleased to announce that we'll be working with award winning Lake/Flato
architects out of San Antonio on our new tasting room and events center. We're big fans of their work and can't wait to see what they come up with.


15th Anniversary Ale - it's official and it's in the tank, this year our Anniversary Ale is a formidable Russian Imperial Stout. We brewed it last week and all indications are that it will more than live up to its reputation - dark, powerful, complex, mysterious. A truly majestic ale for this momentous occasion.


Here's the latest word on the Mysterium Verum program straight from the cellar:

- Erik is fairly certain that our first bourbon barrel aged offering is almost ready. This yet to be named Porter (no coffee) has really developed some nice qualities from the bourbon barrel.

- There is Highlander and Kraken currently aging in barrels but it is still too soon to know when those will be ready for release.

Now that the Lost Gold IPA is brewed all year there will be more Empire (barrel-aged IPA) available in the near and far future.

We have a Mysterium Verum in a steel tank for the first time and it's doing some interesting things. More info as soon as we know more.

Still no official word yet on when MV will be in bottles. We are definitely exploring all of our format options.
