GORHAM, ME - On Wednesday January 16th at 5:00pm, Sebago Brewing Company is hosting their next Pilot Beer Night at the Scarborough brewpub at 201 Southborough Drive in Scarborough, ME. In 2012, Sebago Brewing Company instituted a pilot brewing system at their brewery to test new beers. Some of the top beers brewed on the pilot system have since been released as Single Batch Series beers.
The following beers will be available that have been brewed on the pilot system by various Sebago staff members over the last few months:
- Auger Lager (Dustin Fournier – Bartender, Portland Pub) – A dry, crisp and hoppy rice lager brewed with yeast from a classic American craft brewery. Grapefruit and pepper in the nose, with a resiny flavor and mouthfeel from the hops. 7% ABV
- Hot and Bothered (Beth Duemmling – HR Manager) – This black, complex beer was made for winter warming. Roasted raw cocoa nibs(raw chocolate) give a deep dark chocolate character which opens up under layers of chili flavor for a rich and spicy taste. 7.6% ABV
- Little Orphan Annie (Rusty Packer – Brewer) – The beer without a home…Is she a stout, is she a brown, who is she and where can she call home? Daddy Warbucks calls her the Albino Stout, but her heart whispers “golden English chocolate”. One thing is for sure, she has a “Hard Knock Life” that is chock full of malt, hops, and chocolate love. 7.4% ABV
- Too Big to Fail (Elise Loschiavo – Marketing Manager) – This hoppy monstrosity began life as a wheatwine but emerged as almost a double IPA. Regardless of style, its assertive, orangey and rich tropical fruit aroma are propped up by simple, tasty malts that have taken on new life as undercurrents to this genuine American success story that’s truly Too Big to Fail. After all, why fetter success? 9.1% ABV
Each pilot beer will be $3 for a 12oz pour. It is recommended to arrive early as supplies of these beers are very limited. Pilot Beer Night will begin at 5:00pm on Wednesday January 16, 2013.
