Thank You, Old Firehouse Brewery

Admit it. All of us like to complain about things we don’t like. But how often do we the time to say “thank you” for something that we do like and appreciate?

If you are up on the craft beer scene at all, you probably know that it can some times be frustrating to be a female who drinks craft beers or works in the industry. From the Old Milwaukee Swedish Bikini Team (and the many iterations that followed) to people being astonished that a woman would want to drink a beer (especially a very hoppy one), it’s not always easy. But, the worst are the beer names and labels that seemed to be created to make teen age boys snicker (at best) and often depict women in derogatory ways (at worst).

The Cincinnati chapter of the Pink Boots Society (an international organization for women working in the brewing industry) was formed last year. We often share things like those mentioned above with each other in our Facebook group and also in the group for the entire organization. We type things like “SMH” and send emails to the sources of these frustrations to express our dislike and ask for them to reconsider.

But some times, we get to share our pleasure in something that bucks that trend. Below is the picture and text of what I shared on the international Pink Boots Society Facebook group:

Old Fire House-Pin Up Girl Can

We see so many beer labels/cans for beers with female related names that make us cringe. But when there is one that is done well, we need to acknowledge that. Old Firehouse Brewery in Williamsburg, Ohio is just starting to can their beers. One of their flagship beers is Pin Up Girl. The woman on the can is attractive and modestly dressed. I plan to congratulate them on their choice for the can design.

The feedback from the PBS group was overwhelming positive. In fact, Teri Fahrendorf, the Founder and President of Pink Boots Society, commented, “This can showcases a hardworking woman hero(ine). Very nice.”

So, I wanted to publicly say “thank you” to Old Firehouse Brewery for this choice and for everything they do to support local causes.

If you would like to thank them yourself in person, they are having an Old Firehouse Can Kickoff Launch Party this Sunday (April 3rd) that starts at Jungle Jim’s Eastgate from 1:00-2:30 pm. You buy the beer and keep the glass for $4. Plus, they will have a silent auction for Shriners all weekend long.

The launch party continues at the Eastgate Brew & View from 3:00-4:30 pm on Sunday. For $15, you get two beers, food and a chance to see the movie “Backdraft” on the big screen. Of course, you can also stop by the brewery in Williamsburg, Ohio and thank the owners Adam Cowan and Lori Ward yourself.

Cheers and here’s to better beer (and beer labels)!

Traveling Tuesday: Carillon Brewing, Dayton, OH

When I was an undergraduate I went to a college in East Texas. We used to joke that it was three hours from Houston, three hours from Dallas, and fifty years from anywhere. Going to Carillon Brewing Company in Dayton is a little like that. It’s only an hour or so from Cincinnati, but the whole idea of the place is to take you back to the middle of the 19th-century so you can have a beer.

Carillon exterior

It rained the day we were there. This photo courtesy of Carillon Brewing Co.

Carillon Brewing  is a fully-licensed brewery and restarurant located on the grounds of the Carillon Historical Park. The park itself is an open-air living museum with 30 or so buildings. The idea is to give people a real sense of what it was like to live in Dayton in the 1850s rather than sticking artifacts behind glass in display cases. There’s a modest admission fee to the historical park area, but it’s free to visit the brewery and restarurant.

image

The brewing area. Everything is gravity-fed and heated by wood fires. Racking between brewing vessels is via open half-pipes.

The building looks old, but it was actually completed in 2014. Construction techniques from the 1850s were used everywhere modern building codes allowed.

image

It’s clear a lot of care was taken to blend education into the experience of being at the brewery. This is one of a series of diagrams on barrel heads that explains what you’re looking at as well as the brewing process itself.

One of the implications of both the building’s construction and open wooden brewing vessels is that wild yeasts and other bacteria have taken hold in the brewery. Think sour beers are a modern thing?  Think again. The day we were there we had a sour Porter that was really quite good — as long as you like sours. Not every beer there is a sour, but there are flavors you’re going to encounter that are quite different from today. There’s a Coriander ale with peppers, a beer containing beets and another containing squash.

Barrels

Barrels are constructed in an on-site cooperage.

If you’ve had enough historical exploration for one day, the brewery also serves beers from other local breweries. The food features locally grown and processed ingredients. When we were leaving from our visit we saw a young lady churning butter on the back porch. You don’t see that at Applebee’s. Spent-grain bread is baked in the ovens and is delicious. The non-alcoholic root beer is really, really good.

image

All-in-all you owe it to yourself to make the trip to Dayton and spend a little time at Carillon. You’ll learn something and you’ll have a good beer. Pretty hard to go wrong with that.

Old meets new image

The employees are all in period dress, but there are modern conveniences. You don’t need to bring chickens to barter. They take credit cards.

Schramm’s Mead Coming to Ohio

Schramm’s Mead, the winner of the 2015 RateBeer “#1 Meadery in the World,” has signed a distribution agreement with Cavalier Distributing. The agreement will allow Cavalier to sell Schramm’s meads to retailers throughout the entire state of Ohio immediately. This is Schramm’s Mead’s first distribution agreement outside their home state of Michigan.

Schramm’s Mead owner and head meadmaker Ken Schramm is excited about the partnership. “Cavalier has an outstanding reputation in the craft beverage industry. Their focus on small, high-quality producers aligns with us beautifully,” he stated. “A number of retailers and chains in Ohio have expressed interest, and we are excited to get our mead onto their shelves.”

The meadery was the logical next step following the success of “The Compleat Meadmaker,” Schramm’s best-selling book on mead making, which was published by Brewers Publications in 2003. “The book really helped the mead industry’s train get rolling, Schramm said. “I figured we probably ought to get on board. People really like this stuff.”

The small, family-run mead maker has been crafting extremely high-quality meads from top-notch honey, local fruits, and carefully selected spices since September of 2013. The result: a barrage of awards from the prestigious RateBeer Best Awards, held January 30 in Santa Rosa, California. Schramms’s Mead captured six of the top 11 places in the Mead category, winning two gold medals, three silver and one bronze medal. It was also named to Ratebeer’s “Top 100 Brewers in the World” list for the second straight year.

The operation is truly a family business. Schramm’s daughter, Alyson Schramm Naeger, is Director of Operations. Her husband, James Naeger, is meadmaker and VP of Sales. James Naeger notes, “Cavalier represents some of our favorite brands, including Jolly Pumpkin, Short’s, Dogfish Head, The Bruery, Stone, Cantillon, and the list goes on. We are excited to be represented by such a qualified and knowledgeable team of people.”

Established in 1992 by Founder/President George Fisher, Cavalier Distributing is one of the only distributors in the country with a portfolio that is exclusively American craft and imports. Cavalier is dedicated to bringing great beverages to increasingly discerning, appreciative, and educated consumers in Ohio, Indiana, and Florida. Cavalier employs more than 360 employees throughout the three states and is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, Indianapolis, Indiana, and Lakeland, Florida.
