“Last month an English Brown was brewed and is now on the beer engine. Most of the brew went into the oak bourbon barrels for aging. The Beastie Barrel Porter has been a big hit. Be sure and come in for a taste before it’s all gone. Other specialty beers on tap this month are the Franken Stout, 60 Shilling Scotch, and Sheet Metal Blonde. Our next new beer is going to be a Belgian Pale Ale or sometimes called an Amber Ale. We have pilot batches being conducted this week with a potential brew date later this month. We have stepped our brewing schedule this month in preparation for sending pallets of beer to our new Chicago distributor. Yes, you will be able to purchase Barley Island beer in Chicagoland by June 2009!”
