Update – 8/16/2013

Greetings and salutations! 

Far be it for me to keep this blog up to date.  PBBBT!!  Oh well… here goes, anyways.

The “What’s on Tap” page (link on top) has been updated with current offerings. 

I recently bought a new chest freezer for the sole purpose of making lagers.  It is currently housing my first Oktoberfest beer!  I’m pretty excited about it.  It smells pretty good, so I have high hopes.  Can’t wait to start making Vienna Lagers and Helles-es.  I love those styles…

Aside from that, I have started to take a keen interest in mead.  I’ve brewed one or two, but I decided I want to try and start making small batch meads to keep around.  Also, when I travel I want to start bringing back 5 lbs of local honey and trying to make a simple mead from it to get some interesting regional meads (a nice souvenir, I think!)  Right now I have a Nova Scotia mead in the fermenter (used local Nova Scotia wildflower honey and just a hint of pure maple syrup… I had to.  Side note, the NS honey tasted very buttery. Curious to see how it will come out.)

Aside from that, not much is going on at TMBC.    I will update again (probably in another 6-7 months, since that seems to be how I roll…)

Until then, Cheers!
