Savvy Hip Hops beer of the month club 
Featuring Covered Bridge Brewing Company

– December 2014 –

 

This month marks the first anniversary of Stittsville’s Covered Bridge Brewing Company located in Ottawa’s west end. What better way to celebrate than by having owners John and Kathy vanDyk (plus some very helpful volunteers) hand package hundreds of bottles for Savvy Hip Hops? We hope that you’ll pour a snifter of ‘One’ – their special bourbon barrel aged stout brewed specially for this anniversary – and toast to their first year in the beer biz.

hiphops_largeIn this month’s Savvy Hip Hops Taste Case, you will find two ‘bombers’ of each:

Dirty Blonde
Amber Rose
Wishmaker’s Wit
Moustache SMaSH
Bridge Over the River ‘Chai’

Introducing…
Covered Bridge Brewing Company

by Katy Watts

 

Covered Bridge - Kathy and JohnHome brewing can be an expensive & a time consuming hobby. It seems to always start small, like it did with Covered Bridge Brewing Company’s owner & brewer, John vanDyk (right in photo – hamming it up!), experimenting with a small Mr. Beer kit. As interest grows – or in John’s case – refills for the Mr. Beer kit were unavailable, ‘real’ equipment is purchased, upgrades made & then the BIG switch to all-grain brewing is made. From there, John’s friends are kept happy enjoying experiments in recipe formulation & dreams become blue prints to open a brewery.

What’s in a name?

Before John signed the lease on the Stittsville location he already had the name for the brewery & a logo in mind. “I happen to live on a street that has a covered bridge on our walking path”, John explains “Home brewers are funny in that we usually name our breweries in our house. Long before thinking about going commercial, I had chosen the name. Then a friend at work drew up the logo. We liked the nostalgic feel of it so much that when we decided to go pro & we kept it the name & look.”  And their doors opened on December 20th last year, yet they had “CBB” fans long before.

The Beer Blinded Me with Science!

covered bridge in lightsWhy does beer seem to entice so many to devote their lives to perfecting the perfect glass? It’s something to do with the process, the idea that a handful of ingredients with just a slight variation can create hundreds of different flavours. For John, who admits he wasn’t the biggest beer drinker when he first started brewing, he was hooked after his first all grain batch. “Being exposed to home brewing & craft beer was a bit of a “beer awakening” for me and I learned that there are so many great beers with tons of flavour and complexity. I’m still not a huge drinker, but I really enjoy discovering & trying different craft beers now.”

 

SWMBO & the Unpaid Interns

John isn’t the only one working hard at the brewery. His wife, Kathy (left in above photo), affectionately known as “She Who Must Be Obeyed” (SWMBO) not only encouraged him to leave his day job and start brewing, but helps with the administrative side & coordinates brewery events (and so much more!). Then there’s the team of ‘Unpaid Interns’ who can be spotted doing everything from pouring beer at festivals, picking fresh hops or helping on a brew & bottling day. It is a friend & family affair.

Brewing For Charity

Covered Bridge isn’t just keeping the community well stocked with beer, but it’s also supporting area charities and the community of Ottawa West. In the summer they ran a contest benefiting Tysen’s Mission to a Million with the prize being an opportunity to help brew the summer seasonal, Wishmaker’s Wit. In November, as part of the Movember campaign, they brewed Moustache SMaSH. Fit with its own moustache branded glass, this single hopped American Pale Ale was a tribute to all those involved with the campaign to raise money for men’s health.

What’s Next?

With one year under their belt and a legion of loyal fans it’s hard to know what’s next for Covered Bridge…we do know that they’ll keep on brewing cool beers we love to drink.

Cheers to John & Kathy!

• Savvy Hip Hops Tasting Notes •

Our Savvy Brew Crew member Katy Watts shares her notes about each beer, along with her picks on what to serve … and some fun recipes too!

Dirty Blonde

At 5.1% ABV and 20 IBU, this easy drinking brew uses a solid malt base spiked with American hops and fermented with an English Ale yeast to ‘dirty’ it up.

Tasting Notes: Pouring hazy golden with a thin white head, this Dirty Blonde has a biscuit-y malt aroma spiked with grassy hops. The flavour mirrors the aroma with citrus and grassy hops poking through the bready sweet malt base and esthers from the yeast adding a distinct fruit note.

Suggested Food Pairing: The balance between malts and hops lends this beer to pair with delicate flavoured foods like shellfish, fish, chicken or salads.

 

Covered Bridge growler bagAmber Rose

This full bodied  6.4% ABV, 30 IBU American Amber has a solid malt backbone with caramel richness that helps balance the American hop character.

Tasting Notes: Starts with a sweet base of caramel malt with light nutty notes. Mid-sip the American hops kick in adding pine and citrus zest. The bitterness isn’t overwhelming, but it helps round out the malt with some crispness.

Suggested Food Pairing: The caramel base and citrus hop zing pairs well with grilled meats or stews. Try the Amber Rose alongside BBQ, burgers or my recipe for beef stew with caramelized onions.

 

Wishmaker’s Wit

Originally brewed with the winner of their contest to raise awareness for Tysen’s Mission to a Million, this 4.2% ABV 13 IBU  wit was brewed using Belgian yeast, orange peel, coriander and dry-hopped with Pacific Jade.

Tasting Notes: This traditional Belgian Wit pours a pale lemon colour with crisp carbonation and a light body. There’s a subtle sweetness with tart citrus, coriander, clove and white pepper – refreshing!

Suggested Food Pairing:  Cut up some of your favourite fruits and serve it alongside Wishmaker’s Wit! Alternatively, you could use part of your bottle to steam mussels or other shell fish. The bright citrus notes in the beer will cut through the richness of the dish.

 

Moustache SMaSH

This Single Malt and Single Hop (SMaSH) was brewed specially for Movember using the Australian hop Galaxy as a tribute to the origins of the Movember Foundation charity.

Tasting Notes: While there may be a bigger brewery offering a Galaxy single hop beer in the LCBO, Covered Bridge Brewing Company’s version truly showcase the passion fruit and strong citrus notes the hop is known for.

Suggested Food Pairing: While this isn’t an overly bitter beer, enjoying it with something a little salty like fried chicken, poutine or your favourite bag of chips would ease the bitterness and show off the maltier side.

 

covered bridge in snowBridge Over the River ‘Chai’

This 5.1% ABV 17.6 IBU winter seasonal is filled with warmth! Brewed using ginger, vanilla, cardamom, star anise, fennel, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, pepper and lactose.

Tasting Notes: This gingerbread smelling brown ale has all of the aromatic flavours of chai tea with a touch of sweet vanilla and slight dryness at the finish. The lactose (milk sugar) adds a slight sweetness and smoothness making this beer very easy to drink.

Suggested Food Pairing: Bold dry rubbed meats would compliment this beer, but my favourite pairing would be with a decadent chocolate cake. Try Kathy’s recipe for Apple Gingerbread Cake that incorporates a (small) portion of Bridge Over the River ‘Chai’.

 

OneCovered Bridge - 1 year

A special stout that’s been left to age in bourbon barrels for a year. It was made in celebration of the brewery’s first anniversary on December 20.

Tasting Notes: This beer is so new that a bottle wasn’t available to sample. Our recommendation though, is to savour one and stash the other for a few months. Seeing how some flavours develop as others mellow is a fun beer-experiment!

Suggested Food Pairing: Big barrel aged stouts are perfect for hearty, cold weather dishes, smoked meats and most desserts. My favourite pairing though, is a comfortable chair and a good conversation!

 

• Recipes to enjoy with the featured Savvy Hip Hops •

With Bridge Over the River ‘Chai’….
Apple Gingerbread Cake

From Kathy vanDyk’s Kitchen (aka Covered Bridge Brewery Kitchen)Covered Bridge - ingredients

Ingredients

1/3 c butter, soften
1/3 c sugar (Note from Kathy: I use raw cane sugar)
3 eggs100 mL unsweetened apple sauce
2 royal gala apples, peeled and shredded
1 c Bridge Over the River “Chai” Brown Ale
1 c maple syrup
2 c all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp ground ginger
1 Tbsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp cloves
1 ½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt

 

Method

Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine butter, sugar and eggs, and beat until creamy. Add applesauce, beer and maple syrup, stir to combine. Add shredded apples to the mixture.

In a separate bowl, sift flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, baking soda and salt. Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture, 1/3 of the mixture at a time. Mix to combine. Spoon mixture into mini-bundt pans for individual servings or large bundt pan or cake pan for a full cake. Cook for 12 – 15 minutes for small cakes. Large cake will take 35 – 45 minutes to cook. Remove from oven when an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

These cakes are best served warm from the oven, drizzled with caramel sauce, and topped with whipped cream.

For the chai-spiced whipped cream:

Add ½ c of whipping cream (35% BF) to a cold bowl. To the cream, add 2 tablespoons of Bridge Over the River “Chai” beer, and 2 Tablespoons of powdered sugar. Beat on high speed until firm peaks form.

 

With Wishmaker’s Wit….

Yield: 2 Servings

Ingredients

2 teaspoons of olive oil
2 pounds of mussels, cleaned & debearded
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
1 stalk of celery, cut diagonally in ½ inch slices
2 small crowns of broccoli, sliced ¼ inch thick diagonally
1 large red pepper, seeded and cut in ½ inch strips
3 scallions, thinly sliced

Add mussels and beer to the pan or skillet. Stir continuously over high heat until mussels open. Pour in lemon zest and cream. Stir until warm.

Add sliced scallions and chopped parsley. Stir well over high heat for 30 seconds.

Serve and enjoy with remainder of Wishmaker’s Wit and fresh bread.

 

With Amber Rose….

Beef Stew with Caramelized OnionsCovered Bridge - multiple photos

From Katy Watts’ kitchen
Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

¼ cup vegetable oil
2 ½ lbs beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 ½ lbs yellow onions, sliced
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons dried thyme
3 carrots, sliced
1 ½ cup Amer Rose
1 cup beef broth
1 tablespoon tomato paste
Salt and ground pepper

Method

In a large pot, warm the oil over high heat until hot, but not smoking. Working in batches, brown the meat well on all sides (5 to 7 minutes). Adjust the heat as necessary to keep the meat from scorching. Transfer the browned meat to a plate and repeat until all the meat is browned.

Add the onions and butter to the pot and stir over high heat until the onions start to soften (5 minutes). Reduce the heat to medium and sprinkle in the sugar. Continue to cook the onions, stirring occasionally, until golden brown (15 minutes). Add flour, thyme and carrots and raise the heat to high. Stir for 1 minute, then pour in Amber Rose, letting it come to a vigorous boil. Stir in the broth and tomato paste and return to a boil.

Return the meat and any accumulated juices on the plate to the pot. Let the liquid come to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer until the meat is tender when pierced and the sauce is slightly thickened (1 ½ hours to 2).

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

 

With The Dirty Blonde….

Classic Soft Pretzels

From one of Covered Bridge’s Unpaid Intern’s Kitchen!

Ingredients

1 ½ cups of Covered Bridge Dirty Blonde Ale
22 oz of all-purpose flour (approx. 3.5 cups)
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 ½ teaspoons of yeast (traditional yeast)
1 ½ teaspoons of salt
¼  cups of butter, melted

Method

Warm liquid to 43 – 46 C (110 – 115 F). Pour into a large bowl, or mixer bowl if using a stand mixer. To the warm liquid, add 2 tablespoons of sugar, and mix to dissolve. Sprinkle yeast over top of liquid, and let rest of 10 minutes. Yeast will start to froth and bubble on the surface of the liquid. To the liquid mixture, add flour, salt, and melted butter.

Stir to combine. If using stand mixer, attach dough hook and mix for approx. 10 minutes. If kneading by hand, turn combined dough onto a floured surface, and kneed for approx. 10 minutes, until dough is smooth.

Form dough into a ball. Put dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover. Let dough rest in fridge for approx. 12 hours. After 12 hours, dough will have doubled, and will need to be punched down. After punching down the dough, reform into a ball, cover, and return to fridge for another 12 hours.

This is considered a cold-rise method. Alternately, increase the yeast to 2.5 teaspoons, kneed as instructed above, then place dough in a warm location for approx. 1 hr or until dough doubles in size. If following this method, the dough only needs to rise once.

Once the dough has risen (24 hours if following the cold-rise method, or until doubled if following the warm-rise method), cut dough into 12 strips. At this point, you can also preheat your oven to 375 F.

Roll each strip until you have a long cylinder, measuring approx. 60 cm in length. Form dough strip into a pretzel shape. Once you have shaped your pretzels, fill a large pot with water. To the water, add 1/2 c of baking soda. Bring to a light boil. Immerse each pretzel in water for 1 minute, flipping pretzel after 30 seconds. Remove pretzel from water, and place on a parchment lined baking sheet (6 large pretzels per sheet).

Sprinkle each pretzel with coarse sea salt. For a darker colour, pretzels can be brushed with milk, or egg before adding salt. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes. Keep an eye on the pretzels as they bake as the bottoms tend to brown quickly.

Remove from oven. Best enjoyed when they are warm. These pretzels are also delicious dipped in mustard, or even sweet sauces like caramel, or hazelnut-chocolate spreads.

 

Enjoy your Savvy Hip Hops…and your holidays!

Oktoberfest Countdown from Munich to Ottawa

Posted by Debbie

Thursday, September 18th, 2014
Share

Grab your Lederhosen…it is Oktoberfest time!  While the name suggests a month long festival in October, in reality kegs are tapped in late September in Munich, Bavaria & throughout Germany so the beer flows non-stop for 16 days until the first weekend in October.

Drink Beer from Barhaven to Vankleek Hill…and beyond

The tradition continues in the Ottawa area with Beau’s Oktoberfest in Vankleek Hill as well as Oktoberfest Ottawa in Barrhaven – both on the October 3rd to 5th weekend. The largest Oktoberfest celebration around will take place in Kitchener, check out their great lineup.

No doubt there will be pop-up Oktoberfesting in neighbourhoods and pubs all over town, so grab one of these locally made craft beers & raise a pint to join in the celebrations. “Prost!

bigrig_logo-150x150Big Rig Rideau Red

Brewmaster Lon Ladell figures that he has made thousands of different craft beers and he is far from done! Big Rig beers have grown in popularity that Lon & his team are soon to open an even larger brewery in Kanata where you can stop in for a pint.

Big Rig Lon LadellCelebrate the change of fall colours with this red beer. Crystal malts are used to create the sweet, malt backbone and the unique amber colouring of this brew. Floral hops are then added at the wort boil lending some hop bitterness while still letting the malt profile shine – 5.2% ABV, 18 IBU.  The result? A heart-warming aroma of caramel that carries on to the flavour. Crisp hop bitterness lingers at the end, not overwhelming, but just enough to keep the malt profile from being cloying.

kichesippi beer co logoKichesippi Beer Co. Heller Highwater

Kichesippi beer low resAs the expression goes, “Come hell or highwater…” you need to do whatever it takes to try this Bavarian lager.   Make a point of stopping by the Kichesippi Brewery on Campbell Ave to pick up a six pack. Hell is the German adjective for “light,” while Helles is a noun used in the sense of “a light one.” Subtle, rich, heavenly maltiness with aromas & tastes of wildflower honey & hops await. Enjoy with fresh corn on the cob & bratwurst sausages and ask yourself….

Does life really get any better than this?

Beers worth a roadtrip…

 

Perth Brewering signPerth Brewery Oatmeal Stout

Perth Brewery Oatmeal StoutAs the fall weather rolls in, warm up with a full-bodied beer like this one. Brewed using real oatmeal, there are rich aromas and tastes of coffee, chocolate and vanilla that makes this a good choice for spicy foods, a night cap or with dark chocolate cake!

With 10+ beers always in the kettle at Perth Brewery, if Stout is not ‘your thing’, let me give you another reason to make the drive to Perth – Perth Brewery was named Top Brewery at the 2014 National Capital Beer Festival.

Barley Days logoBarley Days Pumpkin Saison of the Witch

This beaut is only available at Barley Days Brewery in Picton during autumn. During the height of harvest, friends and family parade across the road to the neighbouring farmers market to collect over 400lbs of pumpkins to be used in the recipe in order to create a batch of 4000L of this specialty beer.

Imagine how many trips across the road it takes to make that beer! (sounds like a ‘how many times did the brewmaster cross the road’ joke is coming on!).  As Prince Edward County’s only brewery, plan a getaway to stop in at Barley Days and then visit the 30+ wineries along the way…
