EBC 2016 New Year’s Resolutions

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

As we approach being open for one year at our new location, our Christmas and New Year’s break gave us time to reflect on the past year and what we want to focus on in 2016. As we sat at the brewery one cold morning, trying to keep warm, the first of many resolutions for the new year came to us easily.

Tasting Room Heater
First up on 2016 improvements is to install a heating system in the brewery tasting room. The rudimentary heating device (aka fire) we first conceived almost burnt the brewery down, so we contacted an HVAC company who can install a brand new heater in the tasting room to help keep everyone warm and the building un-burned down.

Pilot Brew System

Cuteness overload

Ever since we opened back in 2011, we’ve wanted to get our 10-gallon home-brewery back-up and running. Not only for fun and nostalgia, but also to brew pilot batches at the brewery. This would enable us to hone in a recipe before brewing it large scale, and allow us to experiment with new hops and other ingredients.

So in 2016, we plan to finally get our home-brewery back up and running. We just purchased a new glycol-jacketed 10-gallon stainless steel frementor and will get our home-brewery back in action over the next few months.

Sell off Old Fermentors
While we’ll be sad to see them go, we’ve started to sell off our old 6- and 7-barrel fermentors to replace them with three 15-barrel fermentors. Not only will this cut down on the amount of work we need to do on 15-barrel brews, but it will also reduce the tank-footprint in our brewery giving us more space.

Expand Tasting Room
With the additional room from selling off our old fermentors, we’ll be able to rope off space on the brewery floor to add additional seating capacity when not brewing. As we see it, there’s no better place to enjoy a beer than with friends next to the stainless steel machinery that brewed it!

Expand Barrel Aging Program
2015 was focused on getting our new brewery up and running smoothly and staring to expand distribution. While we will continue to focus on that in 2016, we also plan to focus more energy on expanding our barrel program. This will allow us to start releasing more barrel aged beers – both on tap and in bottles.

Expand Bottle Program
2015 saw the launch of Valkyrie and Foliage in 22oz bottles – which you can now buy in local shops and restaurants. In 2016 we plan to greatly expand our bottle offerings. This will include bottling our other year round beers, Protector and Lunch Pale, plus each of our seasonals – starting with Golden Spur in the spring. We’ll also begin to bottle special release beers as they become available.

So there you have it – our 2016 New Year’s Resolutions for the brewery. We’re ready for another amazing year!

Hickman English Bitter and EBC Thanksgiving Feast

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

This weekend we’re releasing our first full batch of Hickman English Bitter – and yes, growlers will be available.

We’re kicking it off with a cask of the Hickman Bitter on tap Friday night. Word has it that a real live Englishman will be on hand to tap the keg to kick the brew off right.

For those not familiar with the beer from our test batch back in May – the brew, while light in ABV, has a lasting caramel malt flavor that stays with you long after the beer leaves your tongue. Complementing the malt is a subtle yet noticeable lingering bitterness from 100% Willamette Hops.

Following up the cask, on Saturday 11/23 Disgustingly Delicious will be setting up their tent at the brewery serving turkey, stuffing and cranberry sandwiches in preparation for the upcoming holiday! These sandwiches, specially created for the event, pair wonderfully with our two fall seasonal brews: Foliage and Last Days of Braun. Disgustingly Delicious will be serving from 12 – 6, stop by for lunch, dinner or both!

Enegren Brewing Foliage Pale Ale

The first day of Autumn may be a week away, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start the season a wee bit early at the brewery. Starting this Friday we’re releasing our Fall Seasonal Foliage Pale Ale.

Foliage is an annual favorite – orange in color with sweet toffee, caramel & malty flavors complimented by clean citrus bitterness and aroma.

Swing by the brewery and come celebrate!
