Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family from the Great North Aleworks team. We certainly have a lot to be thankful for at the brewery this year. It was just a year ago that we secured the lease on our space – and a lot of exciting things have happened since then. Thanks to all of you who have enjoyed our beers and have helped to spread the good word. We have a lot going on this week…

Folks are eagerly awaiting the release of our winter seasonal Chocolate Stout. We have brewed four small pilot batches, and need to decide on the final recipe. This is where you come in! We would like give folks a chance to taste the pilot batches and let us know which is your favorite. We’ll be staggering the “stout-off” over the next three weeks, so stop by the tasting room for a complimentary sample. The schedule for taste-off will be:
- Week 1 – Nov 27th & 28th – Batch 1 & Batch 2
- Week 2 – Dec 4th & 5th – Batch 3 & Batch 4
- Week 3 – Dec 11th 12th – Pick between the winners of Week 1 & Week 2
The winning recipe from Week 3 will be brewed and released around the first of the year. As with all of our seasonals this year, Chocolate Stout will be a draft only release. Growlers will be available at our tasting room.
