WILK Friday BeerBuzz–River House Brewing Co (Alpha Deuce IPA & Strawberry Wheat)

WILKFridayBerbuzz15I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I really enjoy meeting new local brewers and sampling their beers.  We always get great insight into the beer, some interesting facts about hot it’s brewed and some great tasting notes about the flavors and ingredients involved.

For today’s show we welcomed Bart Rieppel brewmaster from The River House Brewpub in Milton PA.  River House is a relatively new brew pub that just opened up along the Susquehanna river across from Lewisburg.  River House not only features 8-10 beer brewed in-house by Bart, but also really great, predominantly-Italian cuisine by Mancino.  Bart also has a really great pub club that gets you great deals on beer and exclusive brewpub event invitations as well….so be sure to stop down and have a pint.

imageBart was nice enough to bring up his flagship brew, Alpha Deuce Imperial IPA, along with his NEW Strawberry Wheat for us to sample.  Alpha Deuce is a relatively big beer at 7.5% ABV, but it’s easy drinking hoppy-character easily hide any boozy flavors you might expect.  Alpha Deuce is loaded with citrus flavor with just enough malt to balance it out.  This is the flagship beer for the new River House brewpub and I can see why.  The new Strawberry Wheat was a delicious summery wheat beer that I can really picture enjoying out on the deck or next to the pool (if I had one.)  It’s an easy drinking brew with just enough Strawberry flavor to accent the character of the wheat, and just the right body and ABV to make it a perfect summer beer.

imageBart also brews two other different wheat beers (Street Light Wheat & High Water Hefe) a porter (Canal Porter), an English ESB (Suzy’s ESB), a red (Buggytown Red) ale, a Hoppy pale ale (Hopscale Pale Ale), a Kolsch (Lazy Days), a Scottish Ale (Highlander) as well as a nitro-pushed west coast IPA (Nitro Blaster IPA)…and I can tell you everything I’ve tasted has been a very solid brew….so get down to Milton and check out River House Brewpub for yourself.


to  Bart Rieppel, John, Joe, Karel and Bosco for yet another fun Friday.
