Malware and Broken Bottles (2 Comments)

We’ve been hacked or attacked or whatever the correct term is. Anyhow, trying to visit our site may cause you to see a ‘Reported Attack Site’ warning. Apparently, our site was distributing malware, but it never actually infected anyone because no-one visits. I’ve removed all suspicious files from the website and upgraded wordpress to address the problem. I was using an outdated version and suspect that is what led to bad things happening and the logs seem to agree. Now I just need to wait for Google to review the status of site and determine that the problem has been fixed.

The other half of the title is less interesting. We’ve experienced our first bottle explosion. I was in the basement over the weekend and heard an odd sound. When I went to investigate, I found a broken bottle of Farmhouse Ale. I’m glad I was down there because these things get very stick if they dry. Over the last several months, I’ve been calling it the Foamhouse Ale, because every time I opened one I would pour a glass of foam and then a glass of beer. I guess the pressure has finally reached the critical point. Anyhow, I have 10 bottles of Farmhouse Ale left and I think I should drink them very quickly. I’m happy to give them away as well. 🙂 On that note, I’m also looking to offload a case of disappointing Trappist/Abbey Ale and the few remaining bottles of Swill.

On to better news. We finally bottled the Scotch Ale and our initial impression is that it is going to be a wonderful beer. The smoke is better balanced than the last batch, it’s very malty, and it has a thick, creamy texture. We’ve also brewed an IPA and a batch of Beerios (Nut Brown). Those will be ready to bottle in a couple of weeks. Sometime in May we will probably have the first of several ‘Drink up our Beer’ parties before we relocate.

UPDATE: Google reviewed the site and we are no longer listed as an attack site.

Halloween 08 – 300 Beers (No Comments)

First, let me say that I finally have the website updated and working. I upgraded wordpress on the site, and for the last couple of weeks I have been unable to log in to post anything. So, no onto the beer.

We bottled the beerios, pumpkin ale, and chocolate stout over the last week. So all of those will be ready in time for Halloween. The Beerios is as good as always, and will be better carbonated. The pumpkin ale is wonderful, but it’s rather dark. It’s almost dark enough to be called a pumpkin porter. The beer has the aroma of cinnamon and ginger and tastes like pumpkin pie. I’m expecting the carbonation to enhance the flavor. The Chocolate Stout is rich and dark and creamy. We used a whole pound of chocolate this year, so it is impossible to miss it. I also put some lactose in it to increase the sweetness and make the beer creamy. It’s quite a bit different from most of the Chocolate Stouts on the market and I certainly encourage everyone to try one.

All of that bottling has brought our total bottle count to just a little over 300. I think the official count was 312, but Cindy will probably correct me. That number doesn’t include our supply of Mead either. We have 5 nearly full batches of beer for the party, and a few bottles left from several older batches. Check out the updated Beer List page for details. Be warned, all but the top 5 are in very limited supply.

That’s all for now, I’m just happy to have admin portions of the page working again.

The Harley House (No Comments)

Just when you think you are being original something like this happens. It turns out there is another Harley house. They are larger, better decorated, and I would be suprised if staying at this inn meant you might be sleeping on a couch…. but our beer is better and you cant beat the rate we charge! Besides drinking enough beer (especially if it is a high alcohol like the strong IPA) may mean that you dont care where you sleep be it in a cushy bed with lace sheets or in the shrubs in the front yard.

Yay for new blogs (1 Comment)

I’ve finally created a beer blog, for now it’s hiding here on the /wordpress page. When I get a chance to adapt the look and feel to the rest of the site I’ll move it over to the news page or to it’s own blog page.
