Holy @#$% the Crew is brewing at Canteen

Morning, everyone. Just wanted to pass along this little tidbit.

We’re brewing a beer at Canteen Brewhouse today (Friday).

Yes, we're the people brewing a beer at Canteen. Be afraid, er, no, be excited. You can trust us. We promise to only take a piece of your souls.

Not some little beer on a pilot system, either. We’re brewing up a big old Baltic Porter for all of you to enjoy on Canteen’s full system. No, seriously, head brewer Brady McKeown is letting us brew. He’s not crazy. Well, a little crazy, if you’ve ever seen Canteen’s photos on Facebook, but he will supervise this entire endeavor.

We’ve been talking about brewing a beer there since they were still Il Vicino. Heck, the conversation probably began back in 2013, since Zach Guilmette (now at Chama River) was still there and was in charge of working with us to craft a recipe. The good news to come is that we still plan to work with Zach over at Chama soon, so brace yourselves for a double blast of Brew Crew-inspired/created beers at major ABQ breweries in the near future (and it might be triple if we get over to Tractor one of these days).

Our goal is to create the type of big, bold, dark beer that we all love and share it with all of you. In case you haven’t noticed, but judging by your complaints on Facebook you have, it’s gotten really cold out there (by NM standards). That’s the type of weather that screams out for monstrous dark beers. And we’re just the people to make sure those kinds of beers are being brewed.

We’ll have a full recap of today’s fun up soon, with lots of photos (we’d hoped Porter Pounder would be able to film this, but he’s stuck working on the set of the “Maze Runner” sequel that’s filming in the state right now) and more. And of course we’ll let you all know when the beer should be ready for its debut on tap. Just don’t mind us if we’re the first ones to drink it.

We hope you enjoy your Friday as much as we’re about to enjoy ours.

Cheers!
