BrewsLetter - November 2012

Greetings Everyone!

So, a little bit of time has passed since the previous newsletter, but things have been bustling along at an outstanding pace, so let’s get caught up, shall we?

First off, the Midnight Ninja made its official debut at The Flying Saucer on the Lake in Garland and was an immediate crowd favorite! Big thanks to all who joined in celebrating the unveiling of the latest addition to the FireWheel Brewing Co. family.

If you weren’t able to get a pint on Friday, have another option for ya:

Dallas Beer Week is here! This is a great chance to get out and support local beer and taste some new and exciting brews that are in development. The event will take place throughout the metroplex with beer centric specials at many of Big D’s restaurants and breweries. Join us Wednesday, November 14th at the Brewery for a tour, a chance to sample the new beers we have been working on, a biergarten and firepit, a chance to meet your local brewer, and more. Tickets are $15, and you can purchase tickets from the website, or bring your money with you. We will start at 6 p.m. and go until 10 p.m. We can’t wait to see you at the brewery. We even have special glassware that will be available starting Wednesday (pics have been posted on facebook)

With the addition of the Midnight Ninja to the production schedule, we are doubling efforts to make sure we keep rolling along making the best beer for you and your taste buds. Check out our “Find us” page to see all the great locations where you can find our beer. We have been busy making new friends and delivering to new bars every week.

Tours are every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. so join us this Saturday, join us every Saturday! We love drinking and talking and teaching about beer. Tours are $10, and you will receive 3 generous tastings and we will even let you keep the glass, and when you come back for another tour, bring the glass with you for a discount. How awesome is that? Answer: awesome. The tours are a great way to get good beer and try some new creations not yet available to the public, so come on out, bring your friends, family, acquaintances, neighbors it doesn’t matter.

Big thanks again to all who support the Dallas craft brew scene. Remember, we are on Facebook and Twitter, so add us as friends and follow along as the latest Firewheel Brew news can be found there.

Alrighty, that about does it for this brewsletter. Until next time, we will see you at the brewery, the bars, and remember, life is too short for bad beer. Cheers!

FireWheel BrewsLetter – August 2012

Hello to the FireWheel BrewCrew once again!

A much different state of affairs from that last BrewsNews update! We are officially up and running!

(pause for applause)

Just in case you missed it, we had our debut at The Common Table on Thursday the 26th of last month and it was a resounding success! Thanks to all of you who came out to support us. We went through the first three quarter slim kegs in 2 hours, then I had to drive all the way back to the brewery in Rowlett from Uptown Dallas to get more - Crazy!!!

We are waiting on the second batch to finish fermenting so we can get you guys some more, but you can’t rush good beer… It should be done at the end of this week and ready for delivery middle/end of next. We are still finalizing who will be the lucky ones to get it, but I feel confident that the Saucer, Ginger Man, The Track (in Rowlett), Houlihan's FireWheel, Razoo's FireWheel, and a select few others in the Dallas area will be on the delivery list. Check out the website for an up-to-date listing on the "Find Us" page.

Have a kegerator at your place and want to pour some delicious local brews? Well, we will be getting a few kegs to Spec’s, Kegs and Barrels, Sigel's, Legacy Liquor, and maybe a few more as well. We’re also working to get into Whole Food’s growler stations as well. Again, check out the "Find Us" page.

I have gotten several calls and emails about tours, and YES, we will be offering brewery tours starting on the 25th of this month! YEAH! $10 (Cash is extremely appreciated) gets you in the door with a pint glass and 3 tastings. We will open the doors at 11am and close them around 3pm, but I would suggest getting there for the beginning… We will have our Texas Pale Ale on draft every week, but we will also have a limited amount of varying test batches to taste each week as well. We’ll pour ‘em ‘til they’re gone, so don’t miss ‘em! They will not be announced ahead of time as a general rule, but I can say that for the first tour, you can expect a dark beer (black really) as well as a lighter blond one (but by no means “light”) as well. We will have T-Shirts and extra glasses for sale as well.

One last note before you get back to your day – We will be sampling at the Dallas Observer BrewFest on September 15th! This is the same event as last year’s Brew in the Zoo, just at a different location to alleviate the space issues that they had. Check out their website and we’ll see you there!

Thanks to all of you who are supporting us, and a special thanks to those who supported us even before we were open. We look forward to being a part of the new and exciting Dallas craft beer scene!
