WILK Friday BeerBuzz - 5 Apr 2013 Breaker Brewing Phoebe Snow White IPA w/Mark Lehman & Chris Miller

WILKFridayBerbuzz15It’s been WAY too long since our last visit from Mark Lehman & Chris Miller from Breaker Brewing.  Mark & Chris have been friends of the show from the very beginning, and we all feel like we’re a part of the Breaker Brewing Family….so today’s show was LONG overdue.

We’ve been following along as Mark & Chris have worked to open their new facility on Northampton St in Wilkes-Barre Twp.  From the multiple zoning hearings to the preparation of the brewery, it’s been a long ride…and when I say “work” I can’t express just how hard working these guys are.  From digging and pouring their own basement floors to hand building the taproom bar, Mark and Chris have broken their collective backs to build this brewery….and I’m excited to report it’s ready!

It was a lot of fun getting the latest updates from Mark & Chris on the progress (and completion) of the brewery and the opening of the taproom.  As I said when I stood in the old school house the first week after they purchased the building, I cannot wait to sit at the taproom bar and raise a glass to how far Breaker Brewing has come, and it was exciting to mark that milestone with the guys today.
And what toast would be complete without a great Breaker Brewing beer.  Today we chose to sample Phoebe Snow White IPA, and we clearly made a great choice.  Phoebe Snow is named after a 1900’s advertising campaign for Anthracite Coal powered railroad engines.  Phoebe was always featured in a white dress to highlight how clean the Anthracite Coal of Northeastern PA burned, and she’s the perfect mascot for Phoebe Snow White IPA.  Clean, crisp and easy drinking, this White IPA is loaded with citrusy hops and it’s backed nicely by the balancing malt character.  This beer uses a Belgian yeast so the bready & earthy flavors are there, and I really like how the hops set that flavor off.

Congratulations to Mark & Chris and to all of their families and friends for all of the hard work they have put into literally building a brewery by hand.  I’m also excited to invite each and everyone to stop by and congratulate them in person over a pint of Breaker Brewing beer.

Thank you to Mark Lehman & Chris Miller from Breaker Brewing, Nancy, John & Joe for yet another

fun Friday.
