As many of you know Rochester Mills Beer Co. and our Production Brewery had an eventful 2015, increasing our distribution to include most of Northern Ohio and the West Coast of Florida while we continued to ship to every county in Michigan and keep the taps flowing at the Pub. This meant we produced more beer than we ever had before, (up more than 20% at the Production Brewery) So hats off to our brewers for maintaining the quality, creativity and craftsmanship during our growth. We expanded the brews we put into cans, adding our Pine Knob Pilsner and saw a surging interest in our Seasonal and Specialty brews boosted by our Newton’s ALEchemy Double India Pale Ale and the success of the 12 Days of Milkshake Stout series. All in all, it was a year for the books as they say, but we’re not done yet.
Looking ahead we have some pretty big plans for 2016. Due to the overwhelming success of our flavored Milkshake Stout beers we will be brewing bigger batches of some of the most popular brews and making them available for distribution. Some of them might even find their way into cans. (Vote for your favorite here) Speaking of cans, look for our Seasonal selections on the shelves at better beer merchants next year as well. Tongue Tied at the beach, why yes thank you.
We hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas and Holiday festivities. Join us tonight at our Brew Pub in beautiful Downtown Rochester as we celebrate 2015 and ring in the New Year! We’ll have dinner & drink specials, live music, party favors and a champagne toast at midnight and, as always, there’s no cover! (you’ll probably be able to catch the game as well.) If you can’t make it tonight, we hope to see you again soon and often as we strive to be your choice for Food, Friends & Beer.
All the best…
The Brew Crew
