As of yesterday, Loony's Brew now has a dedicated place for artists to promote and sell their creations, including paintings, photos, and other two dimensional pieces. As you can see below, this is located in the back of the pub, next to the Bumper Pool table.
A few comments and FAQs:
Stop by this weekend to see all the new artwork on display, about a dozen new pieces were added yesterday!
What happened was to crank up the beer an extra 2-3% ABV, you have to not only make a batch with a much higher grain to water content, this will get it to 7-7.5%, but you also include a quantity of sugar with the boil kettle. In this case, about 20 lbs of a Belgian Candy Sugar.
In the big picture, no big deal, just a little extra clean up today and next time will simply make a smaller batch. The beer should be ready in 3-4 weeks, or around mid-July timeframe.
To help celebrate the longest day of the year, Loony's Brew will be offering a few beverage specials, including $3 Loony's Brew beers and Tequila Sunrise specials. Current beers on tap are the Flying Squirrel Amber Ale, Amaizing Cream Ale, Sand Bay Wheat, Stubborn Moose Stout, and Lost Bay IPA.

Enjoy the nice weather, summer has arrived!
For those that like the darker stout beers, our Stubborn Moose Stout is now available, some of the specs include:
SRM (Color): 38
IBU (Bitterness): 40
A robust beer including 70% Irish Stout Malt, 20% Flaked Barley, a combination of caramel and roasted malts, and includes the spicy, earthier hops of Nugget and East Kent Goldings.
The Lost Bay IPA is the newest of the hoppy family of beers, the lightest color of the three and in between the Voyageur Pale Ale and Hoppy Folly for bitterness and alcohol. Some comparisons:
The beer is now on tap and available just in time for the 3-day weekend. Come down to try it out or pick up a growler!
We've also brewed some new batches this week and have used grains available for anyone interested, great for mulch with plants or animal feed. Simply stop by the brewery and fill up whatever you feel is appropriate from the bins outside.
I'm happy to announce the latest beer available, the Voyageur Pale Ale. This is a back to the basics pale ale, including Minnesota based pale ale malt with Magnum and East Kent Goldings hops.
Come down this weekend to try it out, you won't be disappointed. Or, in the small, remote chance that you are, try having another, they tend to improve with quantity up to a certain point, :).
Including 2-1 Margarita Tuesdays, Open Mic and Karaoke Wednesdays, and Ladies Night Thursdays..
