This past Saturday marked the 4th Annual Brewvival in Charleston, South Carolina. The festival is absolutely laden with some of the best beer you’ll find on American soil. Notable brewers such as Justin Stange (7venth Sun), Ron Extract (Jester King), “Spike” Buchowski and John Cochran (Terrapin Beer), Sam Calagione (Dogfish Head), Ken Grossman (Sierra Nevada), & many more were in attendance. Despite an incredible beer lineup, 2013 Brewival may have won the title of “Muddiest Beer Festival in History”. Woodstock ain’t got sh*t on this. It never.stopped.raining.
As you can see – the beer faithful persevered, weather beer damn. There is beer to drink. Brewvival is sponsored by Coast Brewing and The Charleston Beer Exchange.
The 4th release of the North Carolina collaborative brew Olde Rabbit’s Foot returns Saturday, December 8. Duck Rabbit, Olde Hickory, and Foothills each contributed wort from their imperial stouts, then aged it in Pappy Van Winkle barrels. Honey and cocoa nibs are then added for a flavor enhancement.
Bottles will be $20 dollars each, on sale at Foothills at 10 am. 10/8/12
It’s been a while since we’ve seen something new from Duck Rabbit Brewery. The dark beer specialists from North Carolina officially bring you Hoppy Bunny ABA (American Black Ale). This bunny is a black IPA, that isn’t stingy on the hops. Hoppy Bunny replaces Porter for part of the year in Duck Rabbit’s lineup.
Updated: You might see a “Motueka” designation Hoppy Bunny. The beer is the same. Despite the confusion, that designates the early batches.
Style: Black IPA
Availability: 12 oz bottles, Draft.
Thanks to @AtlantaBeerGeek for this. Especially because is a duck, hopping. Take a second and mull that one.
Duck Rabbit Brewery apparently planning on releases Hoppy Bunny A.B.A. (American Black Ale). After a little research, here’s the breakdown.
Hoppy Bunny is apparently the brewery’s hoppiest offering to date. Unconfirmed details: Hoppy will replace Porter for at least part of the year. Running April to September.
Style: Black IPA
Availability: 12 oz bottles
Arrival: April, 2012
Thanks to @WinBassett & @chefkevinb
Ed note: Regardless of what they are currently calling American Black Ale/Black IPA, I use black IPA. It simplifies it for the readers.
Duclaw Brewing will be debuting HellRazer & Euphoria in 12oz bottles…
A medium-bodied, golden IPA that gets in your face from first sweet sip to crisp, dry finish with the exotic tropical fruit flavors and aromas of New Zealand Motueka hops. With just enough malt character to keep the aggressive hop presence in check, and an unruly 7.5% abv, this brew was seemingly born to kick ass. And RAZE HELL!
A creamy, medium-bodied, dark brown pint of liquid bliss that combines a creamy mouthfeel, smooth drinkability and a relaxing 5% abv, with a jubilant swirl of caramel, almond, and toffee flavors to leave you in a state of ecstasy.
Arrival: February, 2012
Saturday August 13, 2011 the 3rd release of Olde Rabbit’s Foot arrives. A collaborative blend of wort from Duck Rabbit, Foothills, & Olde Hickory. 22oz bombers are $20 each, 4 bottle limit.
It’s almost time for the third annual release of the famous collaborative brew Olde Rabbit’s Foot, appearing in bottles on Saturday, August 13.
For those who don’t already know, the Olde Rabbit’s Foot is a truly unique brew crafted from the labors of three different NC microbreweries. Duck Rabbit, Olde Hickory, and Foothills each contributed the wort from their signature imperial stouts; the combined brew was then aged in Pappy Van Winkle barrels with honey and cocoa nibs to produce a libation guaranteed to sweeten your countenance and enhance your reputation.
The bottles are 22 oz. and $20 each, and will go on sale at 10am. As with past bottle releases, we do recommend being very early to wait in line– there is a limit of four bottles per person, but supplies are still limited, and we cannot guarantee or reserve bottles for anyone.
