Live Music @ WHBC
Well guess what? We’ve done it again! This time we won TWO medals, from the Raise A Glass International Beer Competition…wahoo! Keep ’em coming, Jordan! Our silver medal winner this time was our Year One Black Lager German Schwarzbier and bringing home the bronze, Pulpit Supply Dry-hopped Brown Ale! The sad news of course is that the day after we won the silver for the YOBL, the last keg kicked! So you will have to wait a while to taste that medal winner again. But the GOOD news is that Pulpit Supply is a mainstay, which you’ll always find on tap line #4 AND there just happens to be 220 gallons of that delicious Midnight Dreary fermenting away in FV3…
Oh how I love my job.
Don’t forget, this weekend we welcome The Hungry Traveler food truck to West Glenville! Let’s give Chris and his team a warm Wolf Hollow welcome! See you this weekend.
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.
Now in the Taproom
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.
Our Seasonal beers are often darker and heavier than the WHBC Mainstays. This wee heavy takes it to the max with a robust grain bill, strong whisky overtones, and weighing in at 10%. The Scotch Ale gets a little extra attention around the brewery both from the brewers who add bourbon-soaked oak chips to the fermenter and from the customers who eagerly line up outside the brewery to get a chance at ushering in the Holiday Season sip by sip.
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 this spring and cultivate community.
When Christmas has passed and true winter settles in on the hills of West Glenville, we settle in by the wood stove or fireplace with friends and a pint of the Peaty Porter. This brew delivers a comforting, earthy taste which comes from the unique peat-smoked malt that we use. This Porter is smooth and warming without any harsh smokiness. Whether you spend your day on the tow ropes at Ski Venture or keeping the pathway to the woodshed clear so the fires are stoked, WHBC’s Peaty Porter is the perfect winter brew to get you through.
