June Lake Brewing
Let it Snow ~
With two feet of fresh snow over the past week, winter has finally arrived! After a frantic couple of weeks getting all our trench drains cut/broke/formed and poured, not to mention getting the all important bathroom plumbing installed/inspected and poured, we were ready for a little excursion into the wild... and Ullr provided with 24" of love! Big thanks goes out to Joe Walsh, Ramon Camacho, Doug Nelson, Phillip Michael, Johnny Kimball, Jeff Kramer, Dave Tomaszewski, Shaun Paunch Maurer, Darth Hacker, Bobman, Aaron Dore, Fitz, Mark Fogg and everyone else that made it happen, now it's time for some framing.... and more snow of course!
On the beer front the second 1bbl test batch of Alpers Trout Pale Ale was bottled last week by our trusty line of bottling chimps and it turned out swimmingly. If you're in the June Lake area hit us up and swoop by the house for a taste of this approachable pale crafted from Pilsner/Wheat/Munich/Crystal malts and Cascade/CTZ/Crystal/Mt. Hood hops... it is delicious! Last weekend we brewed the second 1bbl test batch of our well received Hütte Double IPA and it's fermenting along nicely. With an OG of 1.090 and a expected final gravity of 1.018 this should yield a 9%+ DIPA with a palate annihilating 128 IBU! Oh yeah and we plan to dry hop this monster with a pound of Citra hops.
To wrap it up, our equity offering and term sheet is ready to rock and we will be reaching out to those who've expressed interest in becoming a stock holder in June Lake Brewing by way of equity investment this week. We'll be hosting meetings with potential investors this week in June Lake, and Sarah will be in the San Diego area next week to do the same down south. If you've already expressed your interest in investment you'll hear from us. If you're interested and haven't reached out, email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more info.
Thanks, and Stay Awesome!

June Lake Brewing
Waiting for Snow ~
Huzzah, our test batch of Not So Hoppy Holiday Ale has been very well received by all those who've partaken! If you haven't tried it, venture over to June and give us a holler, but you better hurry cuz there isn't much left. Getting ready to brew our second test batch of JLB Alpers Pale Ale we're toning down some of the Caramunich malts to give the brew a lighter hue, but it will still pack that same malty body balanced with a mild hoppy bite courtesy of Cascade and Mt. Hood hop additions.
Waiting for our remodel permit, we're ready to get ripping on our location buildout. First order of business after we get legit is cut our trench drains and bust out some concrete (get ready to drop some more hammers boys). On the funding front we're working on putting together a private equity offering to raise the final cash we need to finish the remodel, acquire our super bitchen brew machine, and get to making beer. So if you're interested in owning a piece of the most awesome brewery ever in the coolest location in the world, stay tuned...
Lastly June Mountain is open to the top, but we're still waiting for the weather to wake up. As it turns out Ullr (Old Norse patron saint of skiers and snow) had been seen hanging out on the beachs in SD catching some rays. So we went to find him... After much searching we came across some killer sunsets and beyond awesome beer, but no Ullr. Rumor had it we'd just missed him and he was already off to go party with his buddy Santa up at the North Pole before ramping up our much needed winter. So fear not, snow is on it's way! Until then enjoy some fine holiday spirits.
