Anniversary #9

By Wichita Brewing Company

Wichita Brewing Company

Anniversary #9

              Anniversary #9, but not Anniversary Party #9.  Normally we would have a big write up of a cool music lineup for a big gathering at both brewpubs to celebrate another year in the books.   We would explain how many different beers we would have inside vs what beers would be outside.  What food we would serve outside as the party gets going.  We would keep a good eye on the weather to make sure that we could pull everything off.  Internally we would be debating how many servers and bartenders we will need to make sure we take care of everyone in a timely manner.  How many kegs and cases of beers we need to cram into our small brewpub coolers.  How many bags of ice are needed to keep beers outside cold?   Who must set up everything and who must stay late and make sure everything gets put away?  What could we do to make this year’s anniversary party bigger and better for everyone? Well, that is not the case this year.  Insert pandemic here.

 

So why even have an anniversary if you cannot have a big party?  Celebrating our anniversary is more than just cramming as many people into our brewpubs on one night or weekend as possible.  It is more than hanging out on the patio listening to local music.  It is more than sharing a pint or two with friends on a night.  Do not get us wrong, we love and miss all those things as much as the next person.  Having the anniversary this year is now just a way for us to show gratitude to some of the most loyal customers in Wichita and around.  It is a time that we can reflect for being so lucky to have amazing people support us during a difficult year.  It is a time that we can be thankful for all the little things that we take for granted every day.   With that in mind, thank you.

 

What will this year’s anniversary look like then if it’s not going to be a party?  The best part of all our anniversary party is our beer lineup.  This year is no different than previous years.  We have saved the release of some exciting beers for Friday, the 31st.  I think the most anticipated beer on the beer lineup is Key Lime Pie.  This was formerly Tallgrass Brewing’s more popular seasonal releases that they did.  Did not know we were making Tallgrass Brewing brands?  Where have you been?  Just kidding, we are and that is story for a different blog.  Everyone will get their first taste of it this weekend.  Just think Key Lime Pie in a glass and you will not be disappointed.  We also are releasing the first beer in a new series called Sour Psychology.  This is a barrel-aged sour red ale with black cherries.  The combination of all the flavors in this beer meld together perfectly.  Another exciting summer release is our newest Wichita Hard Seltzer Black Raspberry.  Light in every way possible except in flavor.  Seltzer beers are not going away anytime soon and with one drink of this one, you will agree.  We have a couple specialty anniversary seltzer kegs to tap on Friday.  The east brewpub will tap a lemon green tea flavored seltzer.  The west brewpub will tap a pineapple seltzer keg.  We only have one keg of each.  If anyone is into big beers and big flavors, we have that covered too.  Hatch Green Chile Barleywine is one to satisfy the biggest flavor seeker.  After Johnson Garden Center had to cancel one of our favorite events, Iron Head Hatch Green Chile Fest.  We thought we would pay homage to them and their event with this beer offering.  If you like a little salt in your beer, we have that as well.  Pineapple Lime Gose will be freshly kegged on Friday morning right before the doors open at 11.  One beer that is becoming an anniversary staple, Grapefruit V6.  V6 infused with some of the biggest grapefruits on the market.  A juicy hopped up IPA that comes around once year.  Like all these beers? Be the first to try it.

 

It still sounds like you are trying to get a bunch of people to your place and not be socially responsible?  We are offering all these beers to go and our amazing food to go as well.  Any single topping pizza ordered to go will only be $9.  Anniversary #9 with $9 single topping pizzas to go…Creative, we know.  We will be fully stocked with cans, growlers, and pizza boxes ready to help you celebrate wherever you want to celebrate.  So many can options, that it is too many to list.  Well just list on here, an appropriate beer lineup will be able to do that.  We are open for dine in and having a beer inside.  We just want everyone to keep in mind that everything is available to go.  Like everyone or almost everyone, you will need a mask to enter and move around at the pubs.  And of course, you do not have to wear a mask while you eat or drink.  It is just too messy to do that.

 

What else can I (customer) do to help WBC celebrate their anniversary?  We (WBC) want to share your story on your favorite WBC beer, pizza, experience, event, anniversary, or anything related.  Tell us on social media by tagging us in your favorite story and we will share it on our page.  Do not have social media?  Email [email protected] your story that you want to share.  To show appreciation of your story, we will pick 10 people’s story and give them a WBC shirt of their choosing.  Already have every single shirt we have made.  We can find something for you, do not worry.  You can send those stories over Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.   I will give you an example of a story of mine.  One of my favorite beers we ever did was the first time we made Barrel-Aged Seal Team 6.  We had just picked up four freshly dumped Leopold Whiskey barrels from Colorado and filled a couple of them with Seal Team 6.  My mind was blown on how much barrel and whiskey flavor seeped into the strong Black IPA.  One of many favorite beers we have done over the years.

 

Thanks for reading and cannot wait to read some of your stories.  Cheers to you and thanks for helping us turn the big 9.  We are grateful for your support, especially in these trying times.

 

Respectfully,

Yumkin Pumpkin Special Release

By Wichita Brewing Company

Yumkin Pumpkin Special Release

 

A quick thank you to everyone who has ordered to-go food and beer with us during these abnormal times.

In March, we held a fun social media “March madness” tournament with our beers.  We started with 64 of past and current WBC beers in the tournament and you voted on which one was your favorite.  Well, as you can see Yumkin Pumpkin was crowned the tournament champion.  To honor such a victory and to put a smile on your face, we have brewed up a single batch of Yumkin Pumpkin.  We know we have a lot of avid Pumpkin fans.  We want to make as many people happy as possible and keep this a fun release.  To help spread the joy to as many Yumkin Pumpkin fans, here is our release plan.

 

The single “small” batch we brewed should yield 14 beer barrels of Yumkin Pumpkin at the time of packaging. There are 31 gallons of beer per barrel. We are going to divide up the liquid in the following manner:

4- ½ barrel kegs

20-1/6 barrel kegs

118- cases or 472-6 packs

 

The ½ barrel kegs will go to the brewpubs and will be used to fill growlers.  That will yield about 30 growlers per keg.  Limit of two growlers per customer.

 

The 1/6 barrel kegs will be sold to individuals on a first come first served basis.  To order a keg of pumpkin, email [email protected].  Limit one per customer.  Cost of a keg is $100 plus a $30 deposit fee for the keg shell (refundable upon return).  Instructions on pickup times will be included in a confirmation email.  The kegs will need to be picked up from our production facility at 727 E. Osie.  If we do not have 20 people that want a 1/6 barrel, we will put that liquid in more cans.

 

The cases of Yumkin Pumpkin will be divided up equally and sent to the East and West brewpubs on Friday, May 1st.  We are also canning the pumpkin that Friday morning.  So, the beer will be as fresh as it will ever be.  The cans and growlers will begin to go on sale at 1 PM May 1st.  We are limiting everyone to two 6-packs per person.  When we are gone, we are gone.  Yumkin Pumpkin ordering will not be available online.  Phone ordering should only be used in conjunction with food orders.  If you are only wanting to buy beer to go, please order in person at one of the pubs.  This will help us control the flow of people to maintain appropriate social distancing to keep everyone safe.  The phone number to our west location is 316-440-2885.  The phone number to our east location is 316-440-4885.  We will have a specially designated area for beer only sales near the front door of each brewpub.  Please help us enforce social distancing and keep 6 feet away from other people while at the brewpubs.  Please be patient when picking up.  We will try to make the process as smooth as possible for everyone.  No orders for cans or growlers will be accepted before 1 PM on May 1st.

 

Can’t forget about the treasured spice rims for your Yumkin Pumpkin!  We will have one spice rim container available for free with every purchase of Pumpkin.  If you would like additional containers of the spiced rim, they will be $0.50.

 

We hope to make these unknown times a little more enjoyable for everyone.  Thanks for being a fan of Wichita Brewing Company and supporting us.  We look forward to the days of re-opening our dining room doors and sharing a pizza and beer with you all.

 

Cheers and stay safe everyone.

 

Sincerely,

 

Wichita Brewing Company

Anniversary #8 Party Details!

By Uncategorized

8 Year Anniversary Party Details

Here are some details about our anniversary party coming up on Friday, August 2nd. It is going to be hosted at both brewpubs on Friday, unlike previous years where it would be our west location on Friday and East location on Saturday. Both beer and food lineups will be identical. The only difference will be the live music on the patios. The west side patio music will feature Reach for the Sky. They have been a west side staple for live music in years previous. The east side location will feature a new band called Keeper. We are excited to hear them play.

We have our biggest beer lineup to date available at both brewpubs this weekend. Inside we have 19 total taps flowing, two of which are pop sometimes called “soda”. Five of those options on tap are brand new and have never been released. They are Uisce Beatha Barley Wine 2019, Cherry Mix A Lot, V6 w/grapefruit and Mango, Gose w/spearmint and watermelon, and Wild Foeder Sour. We will also have eleven different can options that are all on special this Friday. With what is on tap and what is available in cans will give 26 different WBC craft beer options. A little bit of everything for every different taste bud.

 

Beer specials and promotions.
If tapping all these new beers wasn’t enough, we are also going to run beer specials. First of all, it is seasonal Friday special day. We will keep that promo running all day and night. Which means the following beers will be on special for $3: Between the Rind, Oztoberfest, Gose w/spearmint and watermelon, Berry Berlemoner, and Saison in the Abyss. The other special will be a can special on everything we package. It will be $1 off all our cans. $3 house beers, $4 seasonals, $5 Mad Scientist $6 Catherine III 2016. Yes, we are bringing Catherine III 2016 out of the cellar. You will be able to order a can inside or outside for the patio party.
We are also releasing our Oktoberfest seasonal lager, Oztoberfest for the anniversary. This year we have a .5 Liter logoed stein to go with the beer. You can order an Oztoberfest in the stein and keep the stein for $15. But, since it is Friday and Oztoberfest is a seasonal, it is on special for $12! If you some reason, you just want the mug and not the beer it is $10. You can also get your mug refilled. Only customers who are buying the stein will get the Oztoberfest poured in the stein. Only the Oztoberfest will be poured in the stein and not any of our other beers.


Food and patio party.

If you haven’t been in the last month, we rolled out a new food menu. It features quite a few new items and lots of new recipes on previous items. Lots of new items for everyone to fill up on. The biggest addition to the menu is our wings. We have wanted to do them for quite a while but finally figured out the perfect way to make them.

For everyone looking to eat on the patio this year. We are going to do something completely new and hope you enjoy it. We are going to fire up the grill for the patio party. The outside menu will feature brats boiled in V6 IPA, hamburgers, corn on the cob and chips. You will be able to order your food with your beer on the patio starting at 6 PM.

We will also tap 10 beers outside for the patio party. All the special anniversary beers will be on tap outside along with all our cans. Plenty of options for everyone.

The west side will block off the parking area just to the north of our brewpub. This will flow from our current patio into the patio party area. The east side will extend out to the west of the building. Please be sure to keep your beer in the roped off area.


We hope to see as many of you on Friday as possible. We couldn’t do this without your support for the last 8 years. Cheers!!

PS. If for some reason you can’t make it on Friday, we will keep the beers on tap all weekend. The specials only apply for Friday. While supplies last.

Mad Scientist Experimental Series

By Uncategorized

Mad Scientist Experimental Series

We are excited to announce the release of our new Mad Scientist Experimental Series! Our goal with this series will be to release a new brew specimen roughly every two months. This limited release beer will go fast and will turn into a new project very quickly, so make sure to get them while you can! We are kicking off the series with a Double India Pale Ale infused with Peach. This juicy double IPA will not be filtered; therefore, we recommend keeping it cold and drinking it fresh for an optimal experience. One of the coolest features of this can label is that certain features will glow in the dark! This new process has not been done by many out there in the beer world. The area highlighted in green on the beer label will glow in the dark after being charged by light. We aim to release the first specimen at the end of July.

With something new means something old must go away. We are dropping our EPIC (high gravity) line of beers to make room for the Mad Scientist Experimental Series. In short, V12 Imperial IPA, Seal Team 6 Black IPA, and Mass Hysteria Rye will not be brewed for packaging this year. They will be brewed on the brewpub level to be served on draft at our two brewpub locations.

What new beers will be coming next from this Mad Scientist Experimental Series? We plan on producing a Milkshake IPA brewed with coconut, vanilla, and lactose. A new glow in the dark mad scientist label will be created as well. Later, we plan on doing an Imperial Brown Ale with coconut, which will also feature a new label. In the meantime, we will be in our test lab lair, dreaming up our next specimen.

Special thanks to the creative team at PPK and our label printer at US Tape & Label for all their work on this project. You can find more information about them at uniteppk.com and ustl.com

To win the WBC gift basket, comment on the Facebook post that led you to the blog with the WBC staff person below who is most relate-able to you.

Can Releases Coming in October

Saison in the Abyss – 6.7% ABV

A collaboration with Hell Bomb Tattoo. A French Saison that is anything but traditional. Pale in color, refreshingly tart in flavor, thirst quenchingly dry, and satisfyingly estery and hoppy.



Mass Hysteria Rye – 8% ABV

This deep red colored rye ale is hopped with Columbus and Cascade. A large portion of the malt bill is rye malt. This gives the beer a hint of spiciness with a creamy mouthfeel. The process of dry hopping this ale brings out the juicy citrus aromatics. Thus creating “Mass Hysteria” with every sip.

Catherine the III Vertical Release – 2016, 2017, 2018 – 9.5% ABV

This will be released in six packs with two cans from each year. The Catherine III is an imperial stout aged in wood with notes of chocolate, roasted coffee, and distant smoke. The 2016 was aged in our oak foeder that was treated with Leopold Bros small batch whiskey. The 2017 was aged in George Dickel Rye Whiskey barrels and the 2018 was aged in George Dickel Rye whiskey barrels with coffee and Madagascar vanilla beans.

Saison in the Abyss tapping at The Anchor

We are brewing up a sour saison called Saison in the Abyss in collaboration with Hell Bomb Tattoo. This French Saison is anything but traditional. Pale in color, refreshingly tart in flavor, thirst – quenchingly dry in after taste, and satisfyingly estery and hoppy. It is a melody on your senses that can only be understood by trying it. Once you’re in the abyss, anything goes. We will be hosting a tapping at the Anchor on September 29th. More details to come.
