As many of you know, we have been talking about our expansion project for a while now and kept using the word “soon.” Well, this morning, soon became a reality. We are delighted to officially welcome our two new 15 barrel fermenters to the brewhouse! Along with these new tanks there have been some other projects going on around the brewery you may also have noticed. Last week we put in a brand new septic system, which you can still see right now when you pull into the parking lot on the left side. This new system will allow us to handled the scaled up beer production. Another project that most have not seen is the new keg refrigerator that has been constructed in the back barn. This fridge is now home to the 200+ new kegs that arrived on the truck along with the fermenters this morning and will also soon be operational to help store all the new beer! We are so excited to share these exciting times with all you, our dedicated community which without you none of this would have been possible. We hope to see you all down at the Hollow in the coming weeks to celebrate with us and check out the shiny new toys.
Wolf Hollow Brewing Company creates true, local, craft beer, captured on draught for peak freshness, and enjoyed in our tasting room or home by the local community. By educating and understanding the community in which it lies, WHBC's regular and seasonal offerings are becoming the preeminent choice of local beer drinkers.
To make this a reality, WHBC sells its beer in growlers or fresh from the tap in the brewery and local participating restaurants, believing that packaging beer only degrades its quality. WHBC is open three nights each week to allow its members and walk-in customers to come in and fill their growlers up for the week, or to spend the evening socializing with like-minded beer drinkers in our tasting room.
Yes that’s right, we said “members!” One focus of our business is supplying beer for, and developing relationships with, our WHBC "Wolf Pack" Members. Members receive a special members-only price on growlers or pints, free schwag, and an invitation to all of our special members-only events. These Wolf Packs are the hottest ticket in town!
Wolf Hollow Brewing Company envisions a style of beer that is intentionally created to enhance our local community by providing a fresh, quality product that exhibits the uniqueness of the place in which it is brewed and the people who enjoy it.
In an effort to bring the “micro” back to micro-brew, WHBC focuses on crafting beer and relationships. We believe that there is great value in the power of good beer to bring people together and that the more we grow as a community, the more good things might come from the building up of those relationships. To this end, WHBC is a hub around which our small town of West Glenville has become even more connected. WHBC is not designed to be the next Sam Adams, but instead it stays true to the community from which it spring, and it does its best to provide its local residents, friends, and neighbors with world-class quality beer that they can truly call their own.
Wolf Hollow Amber is the flagship beer of WHBC because it is crafted after the unique character of West Glenville. The toasted notes and the warm reddish hue of this beer invite you in while the crisp dry-hop keeps you reaching for another. This american amber ale has fans in both craft beer enthusiasts and seekers of easy drinking refreshment.
A clean and drinkable West coast style American India Pale Ale that is brewed to be light in color, dry-hopped for a big floral aroma, and just bitter enough to remind you that you’re holding an IPA. In a market flooded with IPA, this one is brewed to stand out with its rich malt profile and bright dry-hop.
This Belgian Style White Ale is brewed with oats, raw wheat, and sweet orange peel, before being finished with a classic belgian yeast. The large helping of wheat in this beer gives it body and depth without leaving it heavy. White’s Wit is great for folks who aren’t sure they like craft beer, by offering lighter flavoring without sacrificing complexity or brewing tradition.
When the light is longer in West Glenville and the sap is flowing with sunny days and cold nights, our thoughts turn to spring rituals such as pancake breakfasts, St. Patrick’s celebrations, and increasing opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. Whether you allow for beer with your Irish breakfast or just enjoy a good stout under the stars of the spring sky, Wolf Hollow’s flavorful Campout Stout is the perfect companion. Rich and smooth with hints of coffee, this Irish-style stout is perfect for “waking up” from winter and bringing on the new season. Come camp out with Wolf Hollow.
This American Brown Ale has a solid malt profile which delivers more flavor than a traditional English Brown but finishes much dryer due to it’s dry hop qualities. The Nugget hop used provides subtle florals reminiscent of the District 6. When Wolf Hollow’s Brewmaster made a decision to “put off” seminary in favor of brew school, one of his colleagues famously responded, “Lord knows, preachers need beer too.” Once a brewer, he was able to return to seminary and move into ministry. At Wolf Hollow, we believe it all comes together when people gather to enjoy good beer and foster relationships. Enjoy Pulpit Supply Brown year round!
*Pulpit Supply Brown was awarded bronze at the Raise A Glass Foundation International Beer Competition in 2016 and bronze at the Great International Beer & Cider Competition in 2016
Our twist on this new cult-classic style is an India pale ale that maintains that perfect hop presence through the finish while leading off with a rich flavor from the roasted barley and notes of chocolate and coffee. This Black IPA gets our biggest dry hop midweek and delivers a robust and complex experience for hop heads and dark beer lovers alike. Whether you’re a literary scholar, fan of the macabre, or just a friend of the WHBC GM’s dog, we think you’re wanderings in the night will go better with the Midnight Dreary in your growler.
* Midnight Dreary IPA was awarded Silver Medal by Best of Craft Beer Awards 2016 in Bend, OR.
BATTLE OF ’69 IS A BEER BREWED IN THE RELATIVELY NEW STYLE KNOWN AS WHITE IPA, A BLEND BETWEEN A BELGIAN WHITE ALE AND AN IPA. BREWED WITH CORIANDER SEED, JUNIPER BERRIES, AND FERMENTED WITH BELGIAN YEAST, THIS BEER IS TRUE TO THE BELGIAN WHITE ALE TRADITION. HOWEVER, WE HOP IT AGGRESSIVELY WITH LEMONY CITRUS HOPS AND KEEP THE BITTERNESS JUST SLIGHTLY HIGHER SO THAT IT REMAINS TRUE TO THE IPA TRADITION. THIS BEER IS EXTREMELY POPULAR WITH ALL TYPES OF BEER DRINKERS AS A REFRESHING SUMMER OFFERING.
Foothills Pils is Wolf Hollow Brewing’s version of the classic style known as Czechoslovakian Pilsner. Being the most crisp and hop-forward style of pilsner this Czech pilsner features a delicate cereal grain profile, which is balanced perfectly by the clean hop finish. This beer is lagered for an extra three to four weeks to give it a light clean mouthfeel and bright golden color. Named in honor of our location in the foothills of the Adirondacks, this beer is as complex as it is beautiful.
Brunette’s Revenge is an American blonde ale brewed with a healthy portion of malted wheat to give it a nice round sweetness in the malt profile. The American ale yeast keeps it clean and drinkable while the substantial Falconer’s Flight 7 C’s dry-hop balances the malt with just the right amount of citrus undertones. Light in color and approachable this blonde ale is great for people who want a lighter beer without sacrificing flavor, body and complexity. Truly the brunette’s revenge!
Tripel Jump is what happens when a classic Belgian tripel comes face to face with and IPA. This golden straw colored beer is brewers in the classic Belgian tripel style, leaving it light in color and strong in flavor with a mild tartness and slight fruitiness from the Belgian yeast. However, this beer is also hopped like and IPA giving it a hop presence reminiscent of a great IPA. Take a leap and enjoy the Jump!
Lock 9 Porter is a robust American Porter with a deep rich malt profile full of chocolate and black malt. Due to the nature of these malts one can taste the roasted flavor of cocoa beans and coffee in this true-to-style version of the classic English Porter. Clocking in at just under 7.0% it packs a punch to keep you warm on these cold winter evenings. The perfect beer to settle down next to the wood stove and enjoy the company of friends.
