Elysian Brewing Company Rolls Out Bifrost

Bifrost replaced our original winter ale, Valkyrie, in the seasonal rotation shortly after our dishwasher drank four pints of it, was cut off and threw a glass at the bartender. Billy was the first person we fired.  In an age when winter beers were invariably dark, and often spiced, Bifrost was like a ray of strong sunshine (it was also an age when winter beers were released in the wintertime, not August).”

“With lots of pale malt augmented only by a little 77° crystal and some Munich malt, Bifrost is a strong pale ale with a good amount of hop character. Bifrost comes in at 7.5% abv & 55 IBU, bittered with Magnum and finished with a combination of Amarillo and Styrian Golding hops. Its name, however wintry it might sound, comes from the rainbow bridge linking Asgard, the Norse realm of the gods, with Earth.”

ABV 7.5%  |   AVAILABLE in 1/2 Bbl and 22oz bottles

Peak Organic “Peak Maple Collaboration”


“We are also excited to welcome the Peak Maple Collaboration.  It’s a new twist on our previously brewed Maple Oat Ale.  We worked with local farmers and small businesses to craft this beer with Maine-grown organic oats from GrandyOats and Vermont-produced organic maple syrup from Butternut Mountain Farm.  The Maple Collaboration is a copper-colored brew with a dynamic mouth feel from the organic oats and a subtle richness in the finish from the organic maple syrup.  This beer is in support of Chefs Collaborative, the nation’s leading environmentally conscious culinary organization.  Learn more here.”

Until next week that’s all the brews news…
