WILK Friday BeerBuzz–10 Feb 2012 16-Mile Brewing Responders Ale w/Claus Hagelman

WILKFridayBerbuzz8Week after week the Friday BeerBuzz brings you great new beers and exciting new breweries.  I’m always amazed at just how many great craft-beer people we get to meet; how they always have a great story to tell and of course a great beer to share.

Today we welcomed Claus Hagelman from 16-Mile Brewing on the show. For those unfamiliar, 16-Mile is an up and coming brewery in Georgetown DE and Claus is 16-Mile’s Sales & Marketing Director…and I should add…a great guest.

While 16-Mile is new to Northeastern PA, they are doing really well in their existing markets and already expanding the brewery. Claus helped open their new tavern at the end of January and the brewery itself is doubling in size. This should allow them to grow from their current 15bbl system and 30bbl fermenters, and I expect we’ll see some new beers as well.

While many that know 16-Mile remember them for their original 22oz aluminum bottle packaging, they have now switched to the more traditional 12oz bottles and it was fun talking to Claus about that change and even more fun sampling their beers.


Claus told us the story of his Responders Ale and I think it’s fantastic to see that $3 from every case and $5 from every keg is donated to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation….especially in a state where the fire departments are 90% volunteer (including their state capital.) This is a VERY sessionable 4% ABV American Golden Ale with lots of flavor and a crisp clean finish. It was also exciting to sample the non-traditional Old Court Dark Pale Ale. This beer is pretty unique and the hoppy/malty balance is very pleasing and a flavor profile you should definitely check out.

It was a lot of fun sampling 16-Mile brews with Claus and be sure to get out and try these for yourself.

Thank you to Claus Hagelman from 16-Mile Brewing

, Nancy, John, & Joe for yet another fun Friday.
