In 2018 Recess Brewing growing its footprint, more new releases starting NOW

As we finish up another year of beer, it’s time to look ahead to what we’ll be pouring, sipping and loving in 2018.  I’ve reached out to a few of our town’s best brewers to see what we can expect from them in the next Year of Beer.

If there ever was a town that could be described as a picture postcard, it may be Edwardsville, Illinois. As you come off I-255 North you’ll be led along New Poeg Road on your way to Main Street, where this All-American small town is home to one of the fastest growing craft breweries in the area, Recess Brewing.

What Can We Expect in 2018
Recess ended 2017 with 5 of their beers now in bottles, including Comrade: Imperial Stout | 9.6%, 53 IBU, Rebel Circus: Saison – 6.0%, 23 IBU, Clown Assassin:  Belgian Dubbel – 7.1%, 25 IBU, Olde Man: Old Ale – 9.2%, 50 IBU.  In 2018, head brewer Matt Flach says they are planning on keeping the same amount in bottles, but plan to expand their distribution network up to Peoria.  But Recess fans should be ready for a ramp-up of new releases starting now.
New Releases
Their first new beer is out today, with the release of the double dry hopped pale ale Melba Toast on draft in the taproom.  This beer is inspired by East Coast Pale Ale and uses an “irresponsible” amount of their favorite hops, Citra, Huell Melon, Amarillo and Mosaic which help Melba give off flavors of citrus and pineapple.
Our first new bottle will be January 27th when we release our barrel fermented golden ale, Eldergold, aged on local elderberries and peaches.  This will be draft and bottles.  Melba Toast is super fruity and comes in around 5.5% while Eldergold has a fruity flavor but packs more punch at just below 11%. — Matt Flach
Recess plans don’t stop there.  They will brewing new beers every quarter and will be promoting these releases on all their social media outlets.

Party Time 

Fresh off another anniversary last month, Recess isn’t wasting time looking for another reason to celebrate.  Look for their “Halfway Anniversary” sometime in June or July to highlight a new beer.  And since that is halfway to their anniversary date in December, they’re going to make it a party environment.  Of course more details to come about “Recessmas”.

Community Supported Brewery program
Flach has more of a vision than just creating great beer, he wants to make it as available as possible to a many as possible.  To do so he’s created the Community Supported Brewery Program.  “At Recess, we really want to establish the Community Supported Brewery program,” said Flach.  “The idea comes from community supported agriculture, where you sign up to get a weekly or monthly box of fresh-from-the-farm produce. Instead of produce, we’ll be filling your CSB growler with a fresh brew once or twice a month depending on your membership level.”
