Taproom Update

Thursdays have been a difficult choice for us: open the taproom or continue production work. With the size of our space, its next to impossible to do both harmoniously. At the moment, we are limited to 3-1/2 days production because of our open taproom hours… and it’s really more important to make beer, so we are eliminating Thursday taproom hours, and we may be looking at opening later on Fridays as well. Thanks for understanding, sorry for any inconvenience. We are looking at other options as well, possibly moving the taproom to another location so both can operate 7 days/week.

Four Quarters Brewing - Christollen bottle release

Christollen Release

Christollen (Christo-len) is our take on a delicious German Christmas bread that uses rum-candied currants, raisins, and citrus zest baked into a cake-like loaf that often included almonds, cinnamon, and topped with powdered sugar.

We took our Belgian Patersbier, Opus Dei, aged in Mad River Maple Rum Barrels, then conditioned it on black and red currants, golden raisins, and orange/lemon zests, and finally conditioned in 500mL bottles.

This beer is meant to be drank fresh! It’s a better-late-than-never holiday beer… we will release a new batch December 2016, don’t save this one until then!

Saturday we will release our Christollen bottles at noon.
100 bottles… 500 mL, $15, 2 bottle limit.
