FeverDream_ReleaseParty_11x17_web copy

Jim and Pam. Forest and Jenny. Snoop and Mary Jane. For our brewers, that couple that makes us all weak in the knees is Mango and Habanero. 

The combination of sweet mango and bold habanero pepper has always been a favorite in casks of Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA, which inspired one brewer in particular to pitch a Mango Habanero IPA for our Brewhouse Rarities series. 

Brewhouse Rarities Mango Habanero IPA was released in February 2014 and flew off the shelves faster than we could brew it. We’re no psychics, but we took that as a sign that you wanted more. And after running it as a tasting room throwback late last year, our imaginary crystal ball was clear that this Mango Habanero IPA was ready to graduate to our year-round roster. Giving it a name that invokes the feeling of conquering an invading tribe, we now bring you Fever Dream.

Fever Dream showcases a beautiful trifecta of fruit, heat and tropical fruit-forward hops. The balance of spicy and sweet that has been expertly dialed in, with the heat factor falling into the category where you can enjoy a few pints, rather than just one. We recommend trying this with your favorite Thai foods and curry, or on it’s own if food isn’t your thing.

We are shipping this bad boy out to the world on Leap Day, so check our BEER FINDER the week of March 7 to find it near you. If you can’t wait that long, come to our tasting room release party on February 26 from 3-8 pm.

Sleep tight.

A beer like Tropical Bitch just screams for a badass mixologist come in and show it who’s boss.

That’s why we asked John Miller and his teams at Vida Taco Bar and Level (both in Annapolis) to get to work. Check out the recipes below to have the fruits of his labor and love at your fingertips.

If putting close to zero effort in is more your style, time to plan a night out in Naptown.

HeatSeries_Web

We’re looking out the window and can’t help but think that groundhog is a dirty little liar. So let’s turn up the heat.

This Thursday marks the premiere of our new Heat Series, which explores the distinct type of spice — from smoky sweetness to four-alarm fire — individual peppers impart on beer. 2016 will feature:

  • Oaked Chipotle Ale (in our tasting room Thursday and on shelves by February 22): The smoky spice of whole chipotle peppers meets toasted oak with hints of chicory and roasted malt.
  • Ancho Lime Paradise Lager (on shelves by May 15): Mild earthy spice invigorates a crisp, clean lager that finishes with a refreshing splash of lime. 
  • Carolina Reaper Peach IPA (on shelves by August 15): This recently-deemed “hottest pepper in the world” has a very slight sweetness that is met with fresh peach and bold juicy fruit hops. 
  • Jalapeño White Ale (on shelves by November 15): The fresh heat of the Jalapeño enhances the traditional Belgian wit elements of orange and coriander. 

Most of our brewers are hot heads as well as hop heads, so they wanted to ensure each of the Heat Series beers came to the table with a different sensory experience. Oaked Chipotle Ale has a great savory and smoky quality to it with just the right amount of heat. Like any beer we brew with outside ingredients, it’s all about balance. 

So tell Phil to shove it and make your way out to the brewery for the Heat Series Oaked Chipotle Ale release party on Thursday from 3-8 pm. DC 101’s Roche will be broadcasting live and To Meat or Not To Meat will offer a menu that (you guessed it) appeals to carnivores and vegans alike.

BHR_ColdPressCoffee_11X17_web

Not a morning person?
Have you ever committed an act of violence against your alarm clock? Do you wish that first cup of coffee could be enjoyed in bed, with a hearty side of some goddamn peace and quiet? We have the beer for you: Cold Press Coffee Porter. The second of our 2016 staff-pitched Brewhouse Rarities series, this brew’s rich coffee flavors have a delicate bourbon, chocolate and dried fruit profile that is guaranteed to be the best part of waking up. The Sumatra blend (roasted by One Village in Pennsylvania) we used was first introduced to the beer’s creators – a sales team trifecta of Erin, Brian and Nate  by Bean Rush Cafe in Annapolis.

Why Cold Press? 
There is a growing faction among us that fervently believe cold-brew coffee is the best way to enjoy coffee. Cold-brewing takes away most of the acidity that’s typically imparted by high heat, which was a perfect fit for Erin, Brian and Nate’s goal of crafting a more delicate and sessionable coffee beer that could be enjoyed into the warmer months. 

Enjoy it straight from the source in our tasting room Thursday through Sunday or use our Beer Finder to track it down near you.
