McLadden's & Captain Lawrence Collaboration Brew

Captain Lawrence Brewing Company invited our Beverage Director JD Crandall to the brewery a few weeks back... They worked together to brew "Jazz Hans," a semi-traditional Vienna Lager boasting all German ingredients, extensively hopped with Mandarina Bavaria and Huell Melon...  You'll only find it for a limited time at all McLadden's locations!

A Craft Beer Hotel? Book Our Room Now!

Our friends at Stone Brewing are expanding in what might be considered a surprising direction - the hotel business.

From yesterday's official press release:

"Stone Brewing, the 10th largest craft brewery in the United States, and San Diego-based hospitality collective, Untitled Hospitality, announce their partnership to develop Stone Hotel — the companies’ first-ever brewery hotel. The concept aims to open in the first quarter of 2018 and will be constructed, owned and managed by Untitled Hospitality through an exclusive license agreement. Located on thirteen acres of land adjacent to Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Escondido, the Stone Hotel will offer an all-encompassing experience with amenities to captivate craft beer enthusiasts and novices alike, alongside the usual healthy dose of Stone’s disregard for convention. 
Guests to Stone Hotel will delight in a craft beer experience complete from the moment of arrival. An inlay on the hotel’s driveway artistically displays beer flowing from a tap at the top of the driveway down to Citracado Parkway. Alongside rare historical Stone memorabilia, the watchful eye of the gargoyle will be discretely on guard throughout the hotel, and Stone beers will be available upon a moment’s notice. In addition to the normally incredibly wide array of Stone beers that will be on tap, archive special release beers and unique casks will be periodically tapped at the three on-site bars. Hotel amenities will be equally beer centric, epitomized by the availability of a complimentary Stone beer immediately upon check-in and in-room growler delivery service. Stone Hotel will mirror the philosophy of all Stone projects, exhibiting a high level of creativity and wow factor, ultimately creating a memorable, true craft beer experience."

We can't wait to visit!

Congratulations to Southern Tier


Congratulations to Southern Tier

One of McLadden's favorite breweries (Pumking, anyone?) is getting their first brewpub ready.

from REIDRAMSAY over at the Beer Street Journal:

Southern Tier Brewing Company (Lakewood, NY) is breaking ground on their first satellite brewpub located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The pub is located at 316 North Shore Drive, just a short walk from Heinz Field and PNC Park. The new location will feature a smaller edition of the home brewery, plus a 10,000 square foot outdoor beer garden.

The project should be completed in time to still watch a bulk of the football games in the coming NFL season, according to brewery founder Phin DeMink.
