Lion Brewery - Liebotschaner & Other Beer News

I've heard from the guys at Lion Brewery and I'm happy to report some very good news. First, this years production of Midsummer White has been released, and the brewery is already down to their last 500 cases and a limited number of kegs remaining. Work is also underway to brew their 2009 Oktoberfest. The guys tell me that the tanks are currently full of other customer's oktoberfest beers, and the Stegmaier Oktoberfest is scheduled to hit the tanks late in the week of July 6th with a projected bottling date in mid-Aug. I'm also happy to hear that about 120 cases of Stegmaier Holiday Warmer from the Nov 2008 production run has been set aside and will be available in limited quantity. As many of you may remember, the guys also did some oak-aged Holiday Warmer that aged really nicely--so stay tuned for any details on availability of 2009 warmer.

Finally I'm very happy to report that the resurrection of the famed Liebotschaner Cream Ale has truly begun. The Lion Brewery sales team is currently working to clean up the artwork (not necessarily the original label shown above) and the packaging materials order will be placed soon. I expect that this will happen soon, so stay tuned here for details on release dates.
