Superior Bathhouse Brewery To Launch New "Viking" Beer

HOT SPRINGS, ARKANSAS- OCTOBER 24, 2019 -- Superior Bathhouse Brewery will be debuting a new experimental beer in mid-November to herald the arrival of the city’s newest mountain biking event- Güdrun Northwoods Mountain Bike Festival which will be held at Northwoods Trails, Hot Springs’ premier multi-level mountain biking trail system, on November 15-17. Owner and brewer Rose Schweikhart, master brewer Jimm Powell and the brewery team are brewing a traditional Nordic Vossaøl Ale with Norweigian farmhouse yeast (Kveik), locally sourced Juniperus Virginiana (also known as Eastern red cedar) and the world-famous Hot Springs thermal spring water.

“We have really enjoyed researching and brewing this beer because it’s so out of the ordinary! Experimental beers are our passion, we love it when customers can come in and drink something they won’t find anywhere else in the State. We have 18 different beers on tap at any given time and use ingredients from around the world and our own back yards to make our beers unique and of course delicious. We’re weird and we like weird beers.” - Jimm Powell, Master Brewer at Superior

“Kveik” refers to a small variety of traditional Norweigian farmhouse style yeasts that have been used in small-batch brewing across the Nordic countrysides, passed down within families and communities for generations. These yeasts haven’t been commercially available in North America until recently. The literal translation of the term is “yeast.”

Superior Bathhouse Brewery is a proud sponsor of the Güdrun Northwoods Mountain Bike Festival which is managed by Visit Hot Springs and will be one year old in November. Superior regularly partners with Northwoods on events and is excited to be able to brew this special beer for the inaugural run of Güdrun.

Registration is still open for the Güdrun. Please find more information here -> http://gudrunmtbfest.com

Superior Bathhouse Brewery has been brewing traditional and experimental style beers with the Hot Springs thermal spring water since 2013 and is the only brewery inside a U.S. national park. The taproom located at 329 Central Ave in downtown Hot Springs is open daily at 11 a.m. and serves 18 taps of in-house brews as well as gourmet sandwiches, sausages, pretzels, and small plates, featuring Arkansas grown farm-to-table meats and produce.

The beginning of Two Hearted: Bell's Hop Selection

Wanted to share this cool video from Bell's Brewery about their hop selection for one of my favorite all-time beers, Two Hearted.

Check it out.

"In September we traveled to the Pacific Northwest for our annual hop selection. We met with many farmers who've become friends over the years. Their hop fields are extensions of our brewery and they care about quality as much as we do. This is the beginning of #TwoHearted."

Sam Adams x Dogfish Head: CollaBEEration

Dogfish Head: Stop, collaBEErate and listen! Excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with our new co-workers at The Boston Beer Company to create the ultimate collaboration beer – CollaBEEration!

Brewed with two very different types of honey – hello, Zambezi and Brooklyn! – this continually hopped pilsner celebrates the coming together of two breweries. Though vastly different, you’ll find they’re exceptionally complementary.

The use of bees and honey in this special limited release is a nod to the interdependence and unity between Dogfish Head and Samuel Adams, and the result is a remarkably smooth and clean beer that’s chock full of tropical and floral notes, balanced by an earthy spice.

Hitting taps Friday, Oct. 11 at our Milton Tasting Room & Kitchen, as well as the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery Taproom, available … until it’s not!
