Mr.Beer® Beer of the Day - October 31

Hallowe'en Night!

It’s Hallowe’en! Have you been up all night getting those final touches on the costume you or your kids will be wearing tonight? Or even to school or the office today? Were you sipping on a fabulous beer while completing the task? Are you pleased with the results? Good, it was worth all the effort, and you’ll be the center of attention! Extra sweeties are coming your way! Since we’ve all loved the holiday from the time we were small we’re unwilling to give up this fun even though we’re now adults. But with the taste for candy (slightly) waning in favor of other more refined flavors, many of our favorites things now take those sugars and allow them to ferment into beer, wine, and in line with today – spirits. One thing that hasn’t changed is the luxury of the day, and being able to really let it all out this one night of the year. Since it’s a Friday night and the tykes will be sleeping in late due to their sugar hangovers tomorrow, you’ll be able to squeeze in a little extra libation if you choose to tonight! So have a glass or two of Who’s your Hefe? German Hefeweizen and you’ll not miss all the sweet goodies left over in the bag you might otherwise snitch. It’s malty and a little bready with hints of banana/clove and bubblegum esters so you’ll easily be able to resist. And just for a healthy twist, garnish your glass with a slice of orange and you’ll be able to say you got your Vitamin C in for the day. Enjoy tonight, and please be safe!

Red, White, and Beer

On this day in 1997, a Major in the Washington DC Park Police saw fit to dispose of the confiscated beer they had in their possession from all of that year’s 4th of July parties on the National Mall. He did so by pouring it into the Potomac River. Ironically, he received an admonition from the FBI for the pollution of clean waterways under the Clean Water Act. Oval Office Honey Amber carries on the theme of the day, as it is our rendition of the White House’s amber ale. The honey is subtle, the malt is the main character on display, and with a hint of Fuggle hops to finish off the mix. Speaking of finishing off, there are a mere six, yes count them six, days left to endure the political ads that are by now invading every nook and cranny of the media, social and otherwise. So grit those teeth and let’s push through for the sake of democracy!

Bewitched!

The first trial for witchcraft is begun on this day in Paris in 1390, resulting in the deaths of three people. With Hallowe’en approaching it seemed a timely topic for today’s beer. One of the most famous American witches that still holds some cachet today was Marie Laveau, the “Voodoo Queen of New Orleans”. She will have her (reputed) crypt in St. Louis Cemetery #1 in the Big Easy visited and venerated by many over the next few days, as she is all year. Who knows there have been stories and sightings of her that persist still to this day, giving out bags of gris gris. That Voodoo That You Do is our recipe for today, captivatingly simple, yet with a melange of flavors that enchant. Brew up a batch of this potion today, and by the time Mardi Gras rolls around you’ll have a taste with which to bewitch.

Big Red

Memorial Day is a mere 6 months away. Whether you’re in the mood to binge watch war movies for the weekend, or a celebration of the coming summer spent in the back yard reveling in the splendor of spring, Big Red One is a wonderful beer that takes on a complexity over the months it spends conditioning after carbonation has been achieved. Starting a batch now gives it time to marinate so that when you pull it out in late May for its debut it will be rich, textured and ready for a long weekend in or out of doors.

American Beer Day

American Beer Day – Who doesn’t love an excuse to embrace American Beer these days, with the tasty options so much broader than they were even a decade ago! Our 1776 Ale is light amber in color, delicately balanced with Liberty hops and a yeast that rounds out the American Lager’s cleanness with a little more malty goodness with an inference of caramel sweetness. One of our best-selling recipes, this is a great opportunity to grab one hot off the presses and give it a try yourself!

Howl at the Moon Day

Howl at the Moon Day, (shouldn’t this be night)? – In this year’s case the moon will rise in North America in the morning, and following the New Moon a few days before it will be a mere sliver as it waxes on. Howling Red Ale is the perfect libation for such an occasion whether you begin celebrating before or after the sun sets. Amber, mild and balanced, a great beer for a night out under the stars letting loose that inner Canid. There’s just something so primal about a moon on a brisk Autumn night, it brings you back to your roots, add in a roaring fire and now you’re really primed for a good howl! Too bad the moon’s not full for the revelry this year, but a slice of moon is still mysterious enough that it shines slightly different light on the festivities. Ahhh-ooooh!

Punk for a Day

Snake Eyes IPA, because what would any self-deprecating punk want to drink? Bitter, twisted, but oh so flavorful. It fairly writhes down your gullet with the intensity of a hot poker, but you enjoy this, right? Get one today, or don’t, we don’t control you.

The Big Bopper’s Birthday

Fading from memory is JP Richardson known professionally as the Big Bopper, he of the booming “Hello Baaaaby” intro into this classic song that still resounds today. JP was a Texas DJ and also a talented musician and songwriter who along with Buddy Holly and Richie Valens died in a plane crash February 3, 1959, remembered as “The Day the Music Died”. As today is the 81 anniversary of his birth it seemed an opportune time to honor his memory as an exuberant personality as well as a lasting influence on the history of Rock and Roll. Chantilly Lace is a sessionable mash-up of American Blonde with witbier spice to give a little twist of flavor. Just right for a dance party where you don’t want to be weighed down with a fully leaded beer. Clean on the palate, but with hints of citrus and spice this one’s a hit!

Lager Time

With the cooling of the weather now is prime time to brew up some lagers! German Doppelbock is a classic for holiday celebrations. This double bock is a rich, complex lager with floral noble hops on the nose and a complexity of toasted malt flavors with notes of dark fruit and toffee, but the finish is clean and smooth as a lager should be. This is a heady beer though, so be aware that she packs an alcoholic punch and don’t get too carried away unless you are making it a night in.
