Snow is Near, But Beer is Here ~
Don't panic, we haven't forgotten about all you Intrawebbers... It's been a month, but oh what a month it's been. Big thanks to all those that made it out to the second annual June Lake Autumn Beer Festival Saturday October 11th. If you missed the debauchery be sure to mark your calendar for next year as it will surely be a kickass time all over again, and who knows if you're lucky maybe Justin will pour beer on you too.
With summer winding down and fall in full effect JLB is gearing up for winter and getting ready for the June Mountain Locals Pass Sale this Saturday, October 25, at the June Mountain parking lot and ticket office. Come down from 2pm - 7pm to get a super deal on the greatest season pass on earth and afterwards drop by JLB for live music at 5pm from the likes of Brandon Baker. That's right we've got some killer tunes lined up for your auditory enjoyment so come by and grab a coldy.
On the beer front we've released our Rock-N-Dirt Milk Stout to much acclaim and adoration from heavy equipment operators everywhere. At 4.7% ABV and 27 IBU this brew is a mellow, creamy, velvety treat that will leave you sober enough to get back in that skip loader after lunch. Made with real cows (*not really made with cows, just lactose sugar), this traditional sweet stout relies on English Ale yeast to make the booze and chocolate malt to round out the flavor. Also released into the wild, our ESBzar is the new locals favorite. In homage to our fallen friend Larry "BZ" Miller, we created this beer as a thank you for all the help BZ provided the brewery, and the community of June Lake. As a traditional Extra Special Bitter, the ESBzar was crafted with ESB malt, Golding and Fuggle hops, and English Ale yeast. Full disclosure: to keep it JLB we did dry hop it with 22lbs of Fuggles. BZ Miller, gone but never forgotten.
In a parting note get ready for the release of the second version of the Kilmister Ginger Beer this Saturday October 25. Get some while you can as we only made 30 gallons (still honing in the recipe). Oh yeah we also got more stainless steel insulated growlers back in stock so come on by and pick one up so you too can have cold beer wherever you may roam.
