William Street Beer Update - October

Some of you are perhaps curious about why this blog has been pretty quiet over the past few months...well, I guess things have been pretty hectic. The summer came with some pretty crazy demand and our limited fermentation capacity was a bit of a challenge. Oh well. Onward and upward. As you may know, we have been pretty aggressively reinvesting in our brewery to provide our customers, retail and commercial, with a product of increasing quality and diversity. Thank you again for all of your support. is where we are at at this point:

We are currently maintaining steady and consistent retail hours at our onsite retail store. They are Wed - Fri 12-6, Sat. 10-5. Many of you have commented that it is periodically difficult to visually confirm that we are open. If it is during those hours, we are.

We have, of course, also been working hard to refine our products to further meet your tastes and your expectations. At this time, we are working to have Cliff Top Pale Ale and Red Sky Amber Ale available in the retail store at all times. Our new fermentors are getting us into a position where that is a reality for the very near future.

We are also able to now focus on getting some one off beers out to you, and we certainly share your enthusiasm for this. In September, we released Burnham Raspberry Ale. This was a dry, raspberry infused wheat ale which was very warmly received. Thank you to the Burnham Family Farm Market and to all of you for your enthusiasm for local ingredients.

We also recently released a limited number of bottles of Blindside Belgian Tripel. This is a simple version of a Trappist Tripel, but at 9.6% ABV, it makes a great event beer....and rumour has it there is going to be another release very soon.

We have a great line up of beers coming down the pipe in the weeks to come and we are very excited to share them with you. As I mentioned to many of you in the store, we are soon to release Peculiar Pumpkin. This is a strong, English Style spiced ale which features a complex blend of European Barley Malts, joined by mashed pumpkin and a blend of spices designed to remind you of home...where ever that might be. Please keep an eye on our Facebook Page to confirm release date and availability.

Thank you again for your support and enthusiasm. It inspires us every day to create a product which you can all be proud of.
