WILK Friday BeerBuzz 17 Feb 2012 Boaks Beer w/Brian Boak

WILKFridayBerbuzz9A little over a year ago we welcomed Brian Boak into the Friday BeerBuzz studio to sample one of my favorite Boak’s Beers…Monster Mash.  We had a great time and actually sampled several of Brian’s beers including Double BW, Two Blind Monks and even a NEW & special version of Abbey Brown aged in Jack Daniels barrels called Wooden Beanie.

Jump forward a year and Brian was back in the studio to celebrate his 4th Anniversary and to sample some more great Boak’s beer with us.  Brian began his home brewing career with a store-bought Mr. Beer kit in 1999 and gradually grew his brewing skills and equipment size until he opened Boaks Beer in Jan 2008.  He brews the beer styles he himself likes, so he has an interesting array of great styles.

imageA lot has changed in 4-Years for Brian and Boak’s Beer, but one thing that hasn’t changed is how tasty his beers are.  We sampled an updated version of Wooden beanie and it tastes even better a year later.  This beer starts with Abbey Brown Ale and ages it with Madagascar vanilla beans in Jack Daniels barrels, and the flavor is great. 

It was also exciting to sample Brian’s other new creations and a lot of fun seeing how much the business has grown.  Stay tuned as we watch Boak’s Beer grown and watch for new Boak’s beers coming soon.

As an added bonus, Brian Boak will be holding a Meet-The-Brewer night tonight (Feb 17th) from 5-7PM @ Krugel’s Georgetown Deli & Beer on Rt 309 in Wilkes-Barre Twp. by the big cow. I’ll be on hand to help Brian hand out samples so be sure to stop by and say hi and sample some of Brian’s beers.  Brian will also be appearing at Backyard Ale House tonight beginning at 8PM so be sure to stop out and say hi.


to Brian Boak from Boak’s Beer, John, Nancy, & Joe for yet another fun Friday.

The Friday Beerbuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
