Thursday October 28th 2021 - what's in store for 2022, two traditional whiskies, and a newish VT brewery?!

Today I’m drinking a No. 14 Bourbon whisky finished with Vt Maple Syrup from Vermont Spirits https://vermontspirits.com/our-spirits/

What will 2022 bring to the craft scene, according to the Manual it’s not as much as I thought - but apparently N?A and Low ABV beer will continue to grow, Influencers will have a bigger role and so will collabs, plus seltzer continues to sizzle (though other sources suggested it will fizzle a bit) and the newest hotspot is no longer VT, Portland, or San Diego - it’s now going to be Minneapolis? Will the Twin Cities be able to pull this off, read more at https://www.themanual.com/food-and-drink/craft-beer-trends-for-2022/

Benriach Single Malt Scotch has debuted two seasonal whisky releases in the U.S. based on early traditional methods of whisky-making. They’ll be costly - coming in at about $150 for Benriach Malting Season in a 750 ml bottle. This is made from hand-turned floor malts. Benriach Smoke Season uses a seasonal beaded malt approach that’s batch distilled and matured in first-fill bourbon barrels, combined with a high proportion of charred and toasted American virgin oak casks. Smoke Season is the most intensely smoked whisky to be released by the distillery and comes in at about $72 per 750 ml bottle. https://cheersonline.com/2021/10/20/benriach-releases-malting-smoke-season-scotch-whiskies/

And how did so many of us miss this? Lover Vermont Beer on Twitter https://twitter.com/LoveVermontBeer directed me to this. Scotch Hill Brewing Co. opened in downtown Fair Haven… on Aug. 12th! According to the Freeps, (aka Burlington Free Press) a half-dozen house beers were on tap Saturday, including a pale ale, an India pale ale, a Kolsch, a Scotch ale, a stout and the rock-band-inspired Mashing Pumpkin Ale that’s described by the brewer as “Pumpkin pie in a glass,” details at https://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/story/life/2021/10/28/vermont-beer-scotch-hill-brewing-fair-haven-vt/8557445002/
