Deer Creek Malthouse Archives – PorchDrinking.com
You couldn’t have asked for a better setting. An idyllic hillside farm—complete with sheep and a horse—is the perfect place to celebrate the harvest and crafting of one of beer’s most important ingredients: malt. Malted grain imbues beers with sweetness, chocolatey notes and bready, biscuity flavors. Without malt, wort wouldn’t contain any sugar for the yeast to convert into alcohol. In today’s “drink local” craft beer scene, shouldn’t beer contain local ingredients, instead of just being brewed locally? Deer Creek Malthouse’s Malt-A-Palooza sought to celebrate that exact idea and succeeded.
Malt is one of the most important ingredients in beer, and Deer Creek Malthouse is throwing a shindig to celebrate the craft of malting grain. Deer Creek’s Malt-A-Palooza aims to blow your mind and dazzle your palate with malt-inspired food, beer and spirits from their customers and friends.
Another week has gone by, and I’ve spent too many hours on Twitter. I think it’s affecting my personality. I engaged a troll the other day, and I don’t even know why! Is there a 12-step program for Social Media? I’m not saying that I have a problem, but, I mean, it’s pretty likely that I have a problem. Anyway… Here is some fun beer stuff that I found for you! Saddle up, dear readers! It’s time for The Weekly Buzz.
This week had so much fun beer stuff going on that it was hard to keep track. There was SAVOR in DC, Philly Beer Week, the Firestone Walker International Beer Fest… Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! There were also a few interesting announcements and (unfortunately) a little more shady intrigue from AB-InBev. Drag your laptop out to the porch and prepare to discover The Weekly Buzz.
