The pure water we receive from the East Branch of the Brandywine Creek that begins its journey to us just under 14 miles from where we brew with it. We’ll be celebrating this water (insert your lite beer joke here) with our anniversary beer, Headwaters Pale Ale, due to be released February 15, 2011. Now, considering that beer is the product of four simple ingredients and the three other than water rely on water for their existence, we’ve had a fair amount of latitude in paying homage to water in our beer. So, we’ve played all of our cards deftly, bringing the hops, malt and yeast in harmony, with our great local water as the conductor in Headwaters Pale Ale.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2011
A beautiful golden ale with a thin white head. A good classy Citra hops aroma, with light biscuitty malts, chardonnay white wine, resinous character. In mouth, a smooth biscuitty malt with good citrus pulp, citra and simcoe hop action, resinous and floral, green hops, a bit lighter than expected but very good. On tap ate ROC Empire Brewfest, Feb. 19 2011.

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Yay! A new Victory beer! 12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden copper color with a medium sized bubbly tan head. Good head retention and decent lacing. Aroma of earthy and peppery hop notes, along with some floral and citrus notes as well, and faint caramel malts. The taste is pale biscuity malts, bitter herbal hop notes and a caramel finish. Medium bodied. Not my favorite Victory beer, but still solid.
