Last Hurrah is back!

As the year draws to a close, you’re probably getting all geared up for one Last Hurrah.

We know what it’s like. You deserve the chance to celebrate all that you’ve done over the past year, and we want to be along for the ride.

That’s why we brewed up Last Hurrah. Last year, we brewed up a big and boozy 15% stout, originally planning to make it a pastry stout, but changed our minds.

“Well, last year the intention was to go full-on Pastry Boi with it,” says Innovation Director Brian Hink, “but tackling such a huge stout felt like a big win for us, and honestly we really wanted that to stand out on its own. The production team was incredibly jazzed about making a deliciously smooth monster of a stout that we — at the point we were planning to pastry-ize it — opted to let that big, beautiful stout shine on its own.” 

This year, we still brewed up a massive and overly-indulgent Imperial stout, but went with a version of our original plans from last year. 

“When planning for this year’s began,” Brian continues, “we discussed going full-on Pastry Boi, but I was worried we’d lose the people who loved last year’s for being an unadulterated stout, so we toed the line between the big base stout and a full-blown Pastry Boi, opting for a delicate approach to these over-the-top flavors.”

Last Hurrah is meant for going out with a bang. Brewed with an immensely complex grain bill — and a massive one at that — this is our beloved over-the-top and excessive end-of-the-year send-off. Last Hurrah is conditioned on house-toasted coconut flakes, cinnamon, and Madagascar vanilla beans, and has aromas of chocolate and freshly-roasted coffee, with a smooth finish and gentle warming quality.

We’ll be releasing Last Hurrah only in the Tasting Room this Saturday. Check out the track record of this beer, then come down and grab your own!

Roped In

There once was a brewery from Nantucket
Whose beers we wish came in a bucket.
Cisco’s the name
And beer is their game
So we decided to collaborate with them and not mention the obvious rhyme to this limerick!

Spotlight On… The Wooden Match!

If you follow the Star of Bethlehem just past the Hotel Bethlehem (don’t bother trying to get a room — you might end up in a stable), you’ll come upon some rarely-used train tracks. Not far from the campuses of Lehigh University and Moravian College — alma mater to three illustrious Brew Crew members: Sales Director Bill Zaninelli, Sales Manager Richie Rallo, and Social Media and Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg — if you follow those tracks nearly to their eastern terminus, you’ll see the old Bethlehem train station.

Of course, it hasn’t actually been used as a train station since sometime in the late 60s, when people everywhere simultaneously stopped using trains. Built in 1873, this place has seen some serious action. Truman stopped there in 1948 on the campaign trail, back when presidential candidates wore hats and did whistle-stop events (and comported themselves like gentlemen). 

Now, it’s home to The Wooden Match: half craft beer bar, half gastropub, half cigar bar, and entirely a sum greater than its parts. 

And, as you might imagine, in a town called Bethlehem, Christmastime is everything.

"I like that it’s a small business. It’s something cool from my hometown that’s grown into an awesome business.”

Meet Andrew!

Andrew Monastra has been our draft technician for almost four years, traveling around South Jersey, ensuring that the lines that serve our beer are squeaky clean, giving you the freshest and best-tasting beer possible.

“Andrew has a no-nonsense attitude that is very reflective in his work,” says Distribution Manager Justin Vitti. “When he first interviewed for the driver position, we left the room with a common thought ‘this guy just wants to get his job done’. Since then, he has grown and learned everything about being a well-rounded technician in the industry, including a full 3-day seminar covering all the ins-and-outs that even myself or Hank didn’t know to teach him. He is a crucial part of the Distribution Team’s spirit and morale.”

“Merry & Brite is piney, malty, with a subtle floral quality. It's a definite throwback.”

Merry & Brite

As the holiday season draws near and the year comes to a close, there are a few things you’re simply not going to be able to avoid.

You’re probably not going to be able to avoid Yoko Ono caterwauling her way through an otherwise lovely John Lennon Christmas tune, “Happy Xmas (War is Over)”.

You’re probably not going to be able to avoid those time-consuming holiday tasks that have become your least favorite: whether it’s wrapping presents or hanging lights or baking cookies.

And, in all likelihood, you’re probably not going to be able to avoid becoming introspective. Nostalgic. At some point, someone’s going to break out a photo album — remember those?!? — and you’re going to start thinking about your old Dalmatian, or bike riding with all of your best friends from middle school, or that time you broke your arm because you were stupid enough to believe that a Superman cape actually bestowed flying abilities upon the wearer, and, at some point, a flood of memories will come back to give you a smile, or a laugh, or a tear.

It’s unavoidable.

Luckily, this holiday season, we’ve brewed up a beer just as nostalgic to help get you through all of those memories. We went old-school with our newest IPA: Merry & Brite.
