Breaker Brewing – News & Brews

BreakerBrewingLogoNew Just heard from Chris @ Breaker and he tells me They’ve just added Madison’s in Nanticoke to their list of Breaker bars (Anthracite Ale coming up). They will also will be working with the Wilkes-Barre Breakers Rugby team to make them their own beer tentatively named "Bloody Rugger Ale". The Breaker Brewing Pumpkin ale is almost ready and should be in some bars by next week, they have made a few batches of Belsnickler Ale to be ready for December. Also some time in January keep and eye out for their "16 Ton IPA" which will be an imperial IPA and Lunch Pail Ale which will be a very similar recipe to the original I-Love-PA.  Good stuff guys…can’t wait to try all the new beers.

Breaker Brewing Co – Pot Belly Pumpkin Peek

BreakerBrewingPumpkinJust thought you’d want to see a quick peek at Breaker Brewing Co’s new Pot Belly Pumpkin Ale going into the tanks.  It’s actually more of a picture of Mark looking into the tanks, but you get the idea.  Stay tuned for details on the release of Pot Belly Pumpkin Ale.

Chip the Beer Guy Rock 107 – Breaker Brewing Olde King Coal Stout

BreakerBrewingLogoNewToday’s show featured our very own Chris & Mark from Breaker Brewing Company.  As I reported earlier, there is a lot of good news coming out of Breaker Brewing.  More and more local beer bars are serving up BBC beers, so many that the guys just had to purchase 30 more sixtels.  There are three new beers coming, Lunch Pale Ale (the renamed first version of I Love PA IPA), a new hoppier I Love PA (in the tanks now), the new Pot Belly Pumpkin Ale (also in the tanks) and their Christmas/Holiday ale to be named Belsnickler Ale—with Belgian candied sugar.  It’s always great to hear the guys on the radio and more importantly getting the recognition they deserve.  We very quickly forget how hard it is to do what Chris & Mark are doing, let alone how hard it is to be successful doing it.  Keep in mind Breaker Brewing Co is their second job.

Today the guys tasted Olde King Coal Stout, one of my favorite BBC beers.  They also revealed that their Belsnickler Ale will be bottled in bombers for aging and also perhaps aged in oak barrels for later consumption (stay tuned for details).

Congratulations guys and thanks to Chip, John, Jay & Ruthie for an entertaining show.  Cheers!

Breaker Brewing Co – More New Beers & Seasonals

BreakerBrewingGuysI just heard from Chris @ Breaker Brewing Co.  He tells me they will be re-working their I Love PA IPA to be much hoppier, and re-naming the original brew as Lunch Pale Ale (and keeping it in the line-up).  Chris also tells me they are working on their Pot Belly Pumpkin Ale and their Christmas/Holiday ale to be names Belsnickler Ale.  Breaker Brewing Co has also recently purchased 30 more kegs for increased distribution and they’ve signed up for the Great Beers of America Split Rock beer festival in Nov.  Cheers and congratulations guys…
