Catawba Brewing’s 2018 Passport Program Takes Off with Small Batch Russian Imperial Stout

Catawba Brewing is now pouring a Small Batch Russian Imperial Stout (8.0 percent ABV) at all four Catawba tasting rooms. Brewed in their 10-barrel Charlotte brewhouse, this traditional strong black ale is full-bodied and rich in flavor, with a silky smooth finish. Four specialty brewing grains produce notes of bitter chocolate and dark roast coffee, balanced with a hint of malty sweetness. Catawba plans to roll out a barrel-aged version of this beer at year end.

Russian Imperial Stout is the first release in Catawba’s 2018 Passport Program, which returns for its second year. The program offers rewards, exclusive tastings, and pre-sale opportunities for customers who try the brewery’s weekly Small Batch releases. Passport booklets are free at all Catawba locations, including the Charlotte tasting room, which is participating for the first time after opening for business in spring 2017.

DOUBLE-RELEASE SPECIALTY SERIES CANS:

Catawba Brewing Co. releases two new additions to their Specialty Series – both slated for 5-state distribution – with a Double-Release Party on Black Friday, November 24 at all locations.

Keeping with Belgian tradition, LD’s Belgian Tripel (10.0% ABV) is named for a particular demonic spirit – in this case, the Pyatt family dog. Innocently yellow in color and deceptively light in body, this strong ale is bursting with fruity yeast esters and spicy phenols – and a hint of warming alcohol. It was fermented with abbey ale yeast, and features an addition of Belgian candi sugar. LD’s will be available on draft and in 4-pack 12oz cans.

Look for LD himself to make appearances in Catawba tasting rooms in support of the release, where guests are warned to keep a safe distance from the tiny terror. Dogs are encouraged to come meet the guest of honor and participate in the festivities.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Stout (5.4% ABV) was born out of Catawba’s chocolate & beer pairings on the Asheville South Slope. This silky smooth stout was brewed with Chocolate Malts and Midnight Wheat, and conditioned on cacao nibs from a local boutique chocolate factory, whole roasted North Carolina peanuts, and Madagascar vanilla beans. The result is a decadent liquid dessert that’s like a peanut butter cup in a glass. Available on draft and in 6-pack 12oz cans.

SMALL BATCH:

On Wednesday, November 22, Catawba taps a Small Batch Robust Porter (6.2 percent ABV), available at all four tasting rooms. The beer was brewed with seven specialty grains, including rye, lending dominant notes of coffee and roasted malt, with a hint of spice.

Catawba Brewing Co. unveils a new Limited Release on Friday, November 3. Brewed at their Morganton production brewery, Deep State Baltic Porter will be available in 5-state distribution, on draft and in 6-pack 12oz cans.

Catawba is finalizing secretive plans for Deep State-themed festivities on the release day at all four tasting rooms. Leaks from senior officials at the brewery indicate the events will be free to “preppers, conspiracy theorists, tinfoil hat warriors…and the general public.”  

Backstory:

deep state baltic porterThe historical Baltic Porter originated as the more familiar Plain Porter – a dark, roasty, top-fermented ale from 18th century England. A stronger Export version was adapted to survive the long ocean journey to port cities on the Baltic Sea – a similar lineage to the Russian Imperial Stout. But the Baltic Porter is unique in that it evolved into a hybrid style all its own, borrowing from lager-brewing tradition of Eastern Europe. Today examples of the style can be found throughout the region from Poland to Estonia, Russia to Finland.

Deep State Baltic Porter represents the more sessionable end of the ABV range for the style at 7.2 percent. This, combined with its smooth bottom-fermented lager character, makes it a dangerously drinkable dark beer. Deep mahogany in color, it showcases the full-flavored complexity of the style, leading with rich malt, toffee, and dark fruits (raisin, plum, fig).

From the label:

Here begins a journey across the cold Baltic Sea, deep into the shadowy corners of the Old World. Sinister forces collude beyond the midnight waters, always felt but never seen. The destination is a land cloaked in conspiracy, where the only secret too delicious to deny is the local brew. Behold the Deep State!

More About Chef William Dissen:

As Executive Chef & Owner, William has been named as one of America’s “Most Sustainable Chefs” where he strives to create “innovative farm-to-table cuisine” utilizing ingredients and artisan products from within 100 miles of the restaurant.

“There is no cuisine without gardens & farmers,” says Chef Dissen. “We provide farm-fresh ingredients to entice our guests with simple, yet explosive flavors that enhance the experience of dining.”

More About Haymaker:

Make Hay While The Sun Shines!  Centrally located in Uptown Charlotte, Haymaker Restaurant, from Chef William Dissen, brings locally inspired and seasonal food to the Queen City. Our kitchen is led by Dissen and Chef de Cuisine Ashley Quick, a native of Charlotte. Our team reinterprets the bounty of the piedmont area and Appalachia, and explores our foodways, both historic and present across our region.  

We work with a larder of ingredients indigenous to the area, working to craft menus that are both seasonal, healthy, and locally inspired.  Our restaurant is inspired through LEED accredited building practices in an urban setting on Romare Bearden Park with our kitchen being fueled by our brick hearth, artisanal products, and daily farm fresh deliveries.  The restaurant is modern, but embraces the hand crafted artisans and furniture builders of North Carolina.  Like the decor, our food and drink is also modern, but hand crafted to respect our hard working farmers and haymakers.

Heirloom ingredients, pickling, preservation, and sustainably sourced seafood and meats lead the way to crafting our menus at Haymaker.  Our restaurant is as laid back and casual as it is a place to celebrate, evoking the urban heart of the city but paying respect for our country roots.  We’re a place for each and all – It’s a neighborhood restaurant and bar, a place for friends to get together, and a destination for dining for business folks and travelers. 

Make hay, and come on over and share a meal at our table.

About The Market Place:

We are a group of cooks, farmers, waiters, cheese-makers, organizers, ranchers, brewers and dishwashers who share a common philosophy about how we eat and in a larger sense, about life.

We believe in the importance of working locally, not just using ingredients from our surrounding area, but also in our contribution to the community. The success of our restaurant has always been closely entwined with the health and progress of our community. For 35 years we have supported the arts, local-needs and education programs.

Our clients have returned over the decades, we hope in part because we have always tried to treat them as family… and friends. Some might say, our food tastes good, perhaps even memorable. Each day, we do our utmost to prepare and present fresh food in a creative manner with a craftsman’s hand. Working in the most sustainable way possible is important.

The Market Place has been a fixture in downtown Asheville since 1979. Though its beginnings rose in the streams and mountains of western North Carolina – a place of mountain trout and small farms – it also has a hand and heart inspired by traditions far from our borders. This mélange of local food prepared with other worldly traditions of the table may have helped the Market Place garner national attention but the keen reverence for the heritage and roots of Appalachia has always remained at the center of what we do.

We hope you notice.

Catawba’s Festbier surfaced at Gauley Fest 2016, a fall festival famous among paddlers as American Whitewater’s biggest fundraiser for river conservation nationwide. Brewed in their Asheville pilot brewery, this crowd-pleaser established an early high-water mark for the first year of Catawba’s Small Batch Program.

Festbier makes its triumphant return in 2017 to honor another fall festival – the world’s original beer fest. This authentic German-style lager is a gateway to the celebration, from Munich to Morganton. Brewed according to modern day Bavarian standards, the Catawba Festbier represents a lighter, more sessionable evolution of the classic Marzën style. This easy-drinker showcases its distinctive Vienna malt character. Balanced with a touch of Noble hop bitterness, it finishes smooth and clean.

Now brewed in Catawba’s Morganton production facility, Festbier makes its debut in 5-state distribution in 2017. No stein should go unfilled! Find it on draft and in 6-pack cans wherever Catawba beers are sold, from mid-August through September.

Festbier festivities will commence at Catawba’s four tasting rooms on Friday, August 18.

Since then, many other fruit-forward hoppy beers have made all-too-brief appearances in Catawba tasting rooms, consistently ranking among their fastest-selling Small Batch beers. Beginning this July, Catawba’s newly branded Friki Tiki IPAs are here to stay.

Ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavors marry perfectly with the aroma and flavor notes of fresh West Coast hops. Brewed with flaked wheat in the mash, these India Pale Ales feature the soft mouthfeel and juicy character associated with New England IPAs. The hop profile for each Friki Tiki release is carefully chosen to complement a massive addition of real fruit. Seasonal fruit selections vary between batches to ensure optimal freshness, showcasing the tropical and citrus-forward character of each beer, always light in body and incredibly drinkable.

Now slated for 30-barrel batches at Catawba’s Morganton production brewery, these specialty IPAs will soon be available throughout Catawba’s 5-state distribution area. Appropriately, the first in the production series will be the one that lit the torch last winter, Friki Tiki Pineapple IPA. The beer will be released on Friday, July 14, with island-themed food and festivities planned at all four Catawba tasting rooms. Look for it to arrive in draft-only distribution soon thereafter.

FRIDAY, MAY 26:

Catawba Brewing Co. and Eagles Nest Outfitters collaboration beer ENO Pilsner will be released on Friday, May 26, with ENO-related festivities planned at all Catawba locations. ENO Pilsner (4.9 percent ABV) is brewed with the finest pale malted barley, its subtle sweetness balanced by Noble hops Tettnanger and Hallertau Mittelfrüh, to create a traditional German-styled Pilsner. Then diverging a bit from tradition, a uniquely American hop, Idaho #7, was added late in the boil to provide refreshing citrus undertones. The beer finishes crisp and clean, true to style, making it the perfect easy-drinker for relaxing in a hammock.

ENO Pilsner will be available through August, now for the first time in 5-state distribution. Find it on draft and in 6-pack cans wherever Catawba beers are sold.

THURSDAY, MAY 25:

Catawba Brewing taps a Small Batch Grapefruit IPA (6.5 percent ABV) on Thursday, May 25. The beer is the latest test batch in a forthcoming series of fruited IPAs. Brewed with flaked wheat in the mash, citrus-forward hops Citra, Cascade, and Simcoe were selected for both the whirlpool and dry-hopping, with a massive addition of real ruby red grapefruit puree. The result is a citrus bomb of an IPA, light in body and incredibly drinkable at only 65 IBUs.

Grapefruit IPA is Passport Beer #21 in Catawba’s 2017 Small Batch rewards program. Brewed in their Asheville South Slope brewhouse, the beer is available in Catawba’s four tasting rooms, and in limited distribution.
