Just in time for the Holidays

We have an exciting announcement to make! Meadowlark Brewing is working on a new beer just in time for the Holiday Season. “Snowflake” is a gingerbread beer with clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. It gets its name from the Snowflake Bakery that once occupied one of our buildings. The masterminds behind this creation are: Bryce Baker, Brandon Taylor, Joe Bradley, and our very own, Tim Schnars. This beer will be released the day after Thanksgiving.

A Beer By Any Other Name

Well folks, that moment that we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived: Meadowlark Brewing is releasing it’s first three beers, Saturday August 23rd.  The freshman class of Meadowlark Brewing consists of:

Cream Ale – A traditional American beer style that emulates the American Standard Lager, but is brewed with ale yeast. Light, smooth and unbelievably thirst quenching. It’s the perfect lawn mower beer for a hot summer day. 4% ABV

Oat Malt Stout – A velvety smooth nitrogenated stout made with malted oats. Pitch black with roasted coffee hints and a cocoa finish. 3.5% ABV

XPA (Extra Pale Ale) – A tangerine-gold ale, crisp with moderate bitterness and floral notes reminiscent of tropical fruit, lemons, and grapefruit. 5% ABV

The entire staff of Meadowlark Brewing is eagerly anticipating sharing these beers for the first time with our patrons and the residents of Sidney.  Our brewmaster Tim Schnars will be giving tours of the brewery every hour on Saturday, so be sure to get a glimpse inside the brewery, and perhaps a chance to bend his ear about all things beer.  In a couple short weeks we’ll be introducing our Scotch Rye Wee Heavy, a big, malty Scottish beer brewed with rye, and our Raspberry Witbier, a Belgian-style wheat beer brewed with Indian coriander and raspberry concentrate. A little further down the road we’re going to unveil the first in our rotational Belgian-style ale series, a Belgian-style Tripel, a big, effervescent ale comprised of fruity esters and spicy phenols.

We are confident that we’re making a little something for everyone in our initial portfolio, and we’re always open to suggestions.  These initial beers will only be identified by style, as we haven’t committed to any branding yet. But a beer by any other name is still a beer, and perhaps you could help us out in that department.  We encourage you to taste our beers and tell us the stories that your senses evoke.  Craft breweries these days have a tendency to lean towards some silly branding, and while we’re not entirely opposed to that, we’d like our beers to reflect the place and the people where they were forged. Please stop by this Saturday, have a taste of our local flavor, and tell us what you think. Cheers!

Hoppy Brewed Beer!

…er, Happy New Year! It’s only a little over a week into 2014 and the brewery and pub are well on their way, with construction, retrofitting, and rebuilding kicking into high gear. The south building was not as sound as we had hoped and the entire back portion towards the alley was ripped down and rebuilt. The roof was redone, we poured concrete in the brewery, and the construction crew is currently fleshing out the interior of the building:

Overall, things are proceeding very quickly now. We anticipate that the brewhouse and fermenters will arrive in early February and we aspire to be open for business this spring. We are also pleased to announce, that in addition to artisanal beer and food, we will have a full service coffee bar serving everything from espresso to baked goods. As some local coffee places are closed or closing, we hope to give the community a new place where they can enjoy a cup of joe. Likewise, we are happy to welcome two new additions to the Meadowlark Team: Brewmaster Tim Schnars II formerly of Erie, Pennsylvania and Executive Chef Aaron Holliday formerly of Sacramento, California. We would like to wish everyone a happy new year (and a hoppy brewed beer!) and we can’t wait to join the ranks of Montana’s fine craft breweries in 2014!

Meadowlark Brewing is located in northeastern Montana along the banks of the Yellowstone River
