Cookies & Beer… just crazy enough to work

Put down the milk, and step away from the Eggnog, its time to pair a different beverage with those holiday cookies; beer. That’s right people, you can have your cookies and a beer too! With this list of cookie and beer pairings we are sure your holiday sweet tooth will be met with a pretty nice buzz:

Irish Breakfast Ale-
This smoked ale is brewed to taste just like your favorite breakfast, aged over coffee and maple syrup for subtle sweetness. Smoked malt adds a side of bacon with some caramel and dark chocolate. At only 5.5% ABV there’s no shame in having more than one!

To pair along side this bubbly breakfast beer, we recommend the Salted Caramel Crunch Cookie. Chunks of caramel blend nicely with the caramel and coffee flavors within the brew, but it is the pecans and sea salt that really amplify the subtle sweetness of the dark chocolate an maple. The mixture of salty and sweet in this cookie makes it the ultimate companion to the Irish Breakfast Ale.

*For those brave souls, one might even consider adding a little candied bacon on top of that glorious cookie.

Holiday Ale-

It’s the holiday season… so naturally you are going to want some Resurgence Holiday Ale! We builtthis particular brew to be the essence of this joyous time of year. You start out with strong cinnamon and toast aromatics balanced with the tiniest bit of nutmeg and ginger. The flavor is not overbearing sweet, but bares a striking resemblance to French toast. With subtle hints of chocolate and caramel to balance the spice this ale is rich enough to cut through those harsh Buffalo winters. And unlike those holiday cookies, the 5.5% ABV won’t have you feeling guilty after you’ve had a few.

What else would be pair with this festive brew but the most classic of holiday cookies; the gingerbread man! The slight notes of nutmeg and ginger make this pairing a no brainer! Add a little vanilla frosting, not just for beauty, but to highlight the sweetness within those “French toast” flavors. Whether building a gingerbread house, or making an army of little men there could simply be no better cookie pairing.

Vanilla Cappuccino Pumpkin Ale –

Some might call this an autumn beer. And although pumpkin may have been labeled the flavor of choice for the harvest season, we see no reason to deprive ourselves of the joy which is the Van Cap. This beer is a mouth full in more ways the one. For one, you nearly run out of breath saying it, but also the robust flavor profile will leave you, undoubtably wanting more. First to the palette rushes the flavors of our signature spice blend, vanilla bean, and roasted coffee. Quickly followed the malty sweetness of caramel and biscuits. With a 7.0% ABV a couple of cookies may be exactly what you need, and if you are really looking to kick things up a notch try the Imperial blend. A pint or two at 13.3% will surely have you buzzing.

A beer such as this is almost made for dessert. A natural pairing for this seasonal brew is that of the pumpkin pie sugar cookie. This tastes treat covers all the basis. The vanilla base of the sugar cookie compliments the strong notes of roasted coffee, while highlighting the flavor forward vanilla bean. The pumpkin spices mix well with our signature blend, balancing the complex flavor profile with the classic taste of pumpkin pie.

Loganberry Wit –

We western New Yorkers love our local flavor, and Loganberry is about as local as you can get. We brew this in a traditional Wit style which gives it some mild banana and light fruit esters which bounce off the hints of Loganberry. For the of you have have never experienced the majesty which is Loganberry…. Prepare to have your life changed. With only a 4.2% ABV you’ll never want to put it down.

To match this semi unconventional beer, we chose a semi unconventional cookie; the raspberry lemon cookie. These ultra soft, sweet yet tangy cookies are the ultimate match for this local beer, and not only because they are both delicious. Loganberry in itself an odd flavor to match. Its sweet and berry-like but more like a raspberry or blackberry rather than strawberry or blueberry. This sweetness however gets combined with the semi-tart flavor of the wit style beer. It is for both these reasons this cookie makes the ultimate pairing. The sweetness of the raspberry highlights the berry-like flavors of the beer, without being overbearing due to the tart balance of the lemon with the wit style tartness.

Sponge Candy Stout – 

The Sponge Candy Stout is another classic among our line up of local flavors. We make this beer using real sponge candy cuttings from the famous Watson’s Chocolates. This addition to the brew gives it a nice toffee and caramel flavor which complements the pale and dark chocolate malts used. With only a 5.5% ABV this beer will surely satisfy without doing you in.

To balance the rich chocolate flavors of this beer, we’ve chosen to pair it with pecan caramel bars. As any good baker, or chocolatier will tell you the secret to chocolate is actually salt. The pecans and club crackers that build the base of these bars work wonders on drawing out the smooth chocolatey flavor. All the while the melted caramel and butter blend pulling forth that iconic sponge candy taste of toffee mixed with caramel, creating the perfect balance.

Coffee Porter –

A dark brown porter with strong hints of chocolate and caramel along with some toasty notes. But thats not all! We also added pounds of specially roasted coffee beans post fermentation. Flavors of caramel and nut mingle with the roasted malts to make a smooth brew. It’s rich sweetness and moderate bitterness makes this a great beer to rejuvenate yourself with, but its light enough to have more! With 5.0% ABV this beer makes the perfect night cap.

The bold, intense flavors of this beer don’t require much embellishment. For this reason we finish off our list with a simple, but elegant pairing; the coffee porter with a shortbread cookie. Shortbread cookies are amongst the classics in terms of holiday cookies, right up there with gingerbread men and frosted cut outs. Buttery, yet sweet these cookies melt into background, pushing forward the caramel and nut notes, while blending smoothly into the forward roasted coffee flavor.

Good Neigh-beers

We’ve all heard the phrase “shop local” or “shop small”. It’s become such a nationally recognized notion that even large corporations like American Express have actually co-opted the term, turning it into national campaigns such as “Small Business Saturday”. The importance of shopping in our local communities is understandable, but what if we took that one step further? What if local businesses were to band together, sourcing their goods and ingredients from other local companies? At Resurgence Brewing Company we try our best to do just that.

Every year Resurgence does its very best to incorporate at least 2 seasonal brews created using locally sourced ingredients. Following that trend, the local brew for this autumn season is our very own Schwarzbier. For those who do not know, a Schwarzbier is also known as the Black Lager, given this name due to its obvious opaque, black color. Where does this dark color come from? Similar to a stout, this German lager is made using roasted malt giving it that deep rich color. With the pleasant roasted flavor and aroma this lager drinks clean and has a nice dry finish. At only 4.2% their is no need to be shy about seconds.

We reached out to our brothers to the east, NY Craft Malt in Batavia to help us with this tastey brew. Turns out they care about local business just as much as we do! All of the malted grains sold by NY Craft Malt are grown in New York State exclusively, and in fact are grown specifically in Western New York!

After we had brewed our Black Lager to delicious perfection we found ourselves sitting on a whole lot of spent grain. Like many of our fellow breweries in the area, instead of simply letting it go to waste, we reached out to the agricultural community and found a handful of farmers near by who were all to happy to collect the grain. These farmers use the second hand malt as feed for their livestock. This system worked out to be mutually beneficial: free food for their livestock, and free malt disposal for us!

Shopping small doesn’t have to simply mean the consumer. Businesses can do their part by sourcing their goods through local businesses, or simply striking mutually beneficial business arrangements. Resurgence Brewing Company is proud to do their part as much as possible through beers such as the Schwarzbier, featured menu items from local restaurants, and even murals created by local artists.   

Stop by and try our Schwarzbier today! On tap now in our taproom. 1250 Niagara Street , Buffalo NY 14213

Grill local: Beer and backyard party pairings from RBC

It’s grilling season in Western New York, and we’re pretty sure it’s illegal to grill without a beverage nearby. Most of us crack open our favorites when we light up the charcoal, but for the ultimate grilling experience, consider pairing your beers with your picnic table spread. Here are a few ideas for the best local food and Resurgence beer pairings we can find, for a BBQ all of your guests will Buffalove.

1. Sahlen’s or Wardynski’s Hot Dogs with Weber’s Mustard and Bridge Pilsner

If you’re grilling up some dogs in Buffalo and you’re not buying Sahlen’s or Wardynski’s, you’re missing out. Top those suckers with a schmear of Weber’s Mustard to really get the party started. A nice, crisp pilsner is light enough to let the horseradish shine, while complementing that salty meat and char flavor. Go ahead, have two. We don’t judge.

 

2. Spars or Mineo and Sapio’s sausage and Cosmic Truth Session IPA or Blood Orange Saison

We get it. Your outdoor picnic is a marathon, not a sprint. That’s why we recommend Cosmic Truth Session IPA from firing up the grill to watching the sun go down. At 4.3% ABV, you can stay in it for the long haul. Try Cosmic alongside a spicy, full-flavored sausage from Spars or Mineo and Sapio. You’ll love how the beer’s citric acidity plays up the spice, while its light body leaves room for seconds. Not a fan of hops? Try Blood Orange Saison and notice how the funky farmhouse ale and the umami meatiness complement one another.

3. Barrel & Brine pickles with Cucumber Saison

If you haven’t tried Barrel & Brine’s pickles, you’re missing out. RJ Martin’s pickled vegetables have a zestier, more nuanced flavor than the grocery store standards, and taste great on a crudite tray or atop your burgers and links. Our Cucumber Saison is made with fresh local cucumbers, so it’s a natural choice to pair with fermented foods. Notice how this refreshing, slightly funky farmhouse ale accentuates the fresh earthiness of those vegetables and vice versa.

4. Local potato salad with CitMo IPA or Resurgence IPA

It’s not a BBQ without everyone’s favorite creamy, crunchy, carb-y side dish. Really commit to the cause by getting your veggies at your closest farmer’s market (click the link to find your closest one!) We love how CitMo IPA’s hoppy bite cuts the mayo and scrubs your tongue clean for the next bite. Citrus and pine notes provide a perfect contrast to anything starchy, so try this one with your pasta salad too. If you prefer a West Coast-style IPA, try Resurgence IPA for a milder answer to the hop bomb.

5. Strawberry Shortcake with Loganberry Wit

If you’re still buying those giant, white-inside strawberries from the grocery store, you’ve never had a real strawberry. The smaller, candy-like gems from farms like Awald’s Berry Farm in North Collins or Greg’s U-Pick in Clarence will take your shortcake to the next level. Here’s a great recipe! You can pick your own or find them at most farmer’s markets this time of year. Our tart, berrylicious Loganberry Wit is just sweet enough to play off the berries, but tart enough to contrast with rich, crumbly shortcake. Pro tip: Top it with real whipped cream for a decadent treat.

6. Lake Effect or Perry’s Sponge Candy Ice Cream and Sponge Candy Stout

We scream for ice cream! What’s better than sponge candy ice cream? Two (yes, two) local ice creameries make it: The smaller, more artisanal Lake Effect and that freezer aisle standard, Perry’s. Sponge candy ice cream AND beer, of course. Our Sponge Candy Stout is smooth and light enough for a summer get-together. Pairing it with rich, sponge-studded ice cream makes the caramelized sugar flavor really pop. If you’re feeling adventurous, scoop a little ice cream right into your pint for a beer float worthy of any celebration. Can’t find sponge candy flavor? Try vanilla or chocolate or even butter pecan. Experiment – you may discover a new favorite!

Blood Orange Saison, Cosmic Truth Session Ale, and Resurgence IPA are available in cans at your favorite beer store, and the rest of our RBC beers can be purchased in growlers or crowlers at our taproom. Stop by this weekend to get yours! Have you tried a beer and food pairing that really brings the party? Let us know in the comments and we’ll give your ideas a try. Whether you’re grilling out, going to a BBQ, or bringing a four-pack along to the fireworks, have a great Independence Day. Remember to be safe this holiday weekend, and always enjoy responsibly.

Five reasons to host your event at RBC

Hosting events can be daunting. There’s a lot to figure out: Where’s the perfect venue? What about food and drink? What’s the right vibe? At Resurgence Brewing Company, we make that process not only easy, but fun. Here are five quick reasons why we’re the perfect place to host your next event, whether it’s a happy hour for your company, a surprise birthday for your friend’s 50th, a wedding rehearsal dinner, or whatever else you’ve got on your social calendar.

1. Our spacious taproom offers a wealth of options
Need room for 20 people? How about 200? We can handle that. At RBC, our hosting options range from reserving a table to renting out the whole space, so we can fully customize all events to your needs. Prices and packages vary, and our event manager will be happy to help you decide what fits you best.

2. Open the bar for your guests or pay as you go: Your choice.
Some events call for an open bar, but often times you don’t want to front the bill for your entire group. No problem! We offer a range of bar packages, from drink tickets to open bars by the hour, and can even provide your very own bartender to eliminate wait times at the rail. Whatever your budget, we’ve got a bar package that fits.

3. We allow food from, well, anywhere!
While we do offer in-house catering options for our guests to choose from, we also allow outside food from any licensed establishment. Maybe you want sushi trays from your favorite spot, pizza and wings, a taco bar, or grocery store veggies and dip. All we ask is a receipt from a licensed purveyor, and you can chow down on whatever suits your mood.

4. Our spacious industrial-style taproom will wow your guests
With so many events spaces to choose from, it can be hard to decide what fits your vibe. At RBC, our high ceilings, exposed brick, open brew house, and secluded biergarten provide a unique backdrop to everything from corporate presentations to rehearsal dinners. All styles of decorations look great against our steel beer tanks, rustic wooden picnic tables, and artist-decorated chalk wall. Check out our photo gallery to see how some of our events have come together.

5. Our friendly staff will make your gathering not only effortless, but fun
It’s not easy playing host, so let us do the work for you! Our experienced bar and event manager Brandon will work with you to arrange all aspects of your event, and our bar staff is knowledgeable and attentive. We’re always happy to provide samples and explanations of anything on tap, to put even new craft beer drinkers at ease. If you’d like, we can even add a tour of the brewhouse to your get-together, to add an element of education to the mix.

Bonus: We can bring the beer to you!
If you’d rather hold your shindig in the comfort of your own home, we can bring our portable beer system right to your backyard or event space. In addition to the beer of your choice, we can provide a portable bar and bartender for you and your guests.

While party planning can be a heavy lift, it doesn’t have to be. At RBC, our experienced staff and wealth of options can help you create the wedding of your dreams, the relaxing happy hour your team needs, the best birthday party ever, or even the ideal evening at the bar for you and your friends. Give us a call or email us to discuss what we can do to bring the experience of great beer to your event, today.

Meet Erik: 10 questions with the brewer

Brewer Erik Greiner has been with Resurgence Brewing since the very beginning, and can usually be found hanging out at the end of the bar when he’s not in the brewhouse. We caught up with Erik on some of his history, his favorite beers and ingredients, and his illustrious start in the biz.

RBC: How did you first get started brewing?

Erik Greiner: It all started on a cold night. We were 45 crows past the wind, sailing on the Hanjo through the Southern Pacific. Casualties were at an all-time low but morale seemed to be even lower…oh wrong story. I started homebrewing with my buddy back in college, which sparked a real interest in the whole science behind everything, as well as the desire to make really good beer. The first batch came out awful, which made me even more interested to learn as much as I could so I would never have to make or drink anything like that again.

RBC: What was the first beer you ever brewed? 

EG: The first beer I ever brewed was an all-extract kit for a pale ale. It ended up not being quite pale, or very much an ale either.

RBC: How did you get involved at RBC initially?

The way I got involved in RBC was very lucky actually. I was just finishing up my final semester at Niagara College and it was kind of a “right place, right time” sort of thing. They were finishing up the construction on the building and just putting on the finishing touches when I had my first interview with [head brewer] Dave. My second interview is when I met Jeff [the owner] and the rest is history.

RBC: Do you have a favorite ingredient to work with right now?

EG: At the moment, I don’t really have a favorite ingredient because there are so many coming out every year. One of the hops that I really like to use while brewing is El Dorado.

RBC: What’s your favorite style to brew or drink?

EG: My favorite style of beer to drink is IPAs. They just taste great after a long day of work.

RBC: If you could only drink one beer on RBC’s list for the rest of the year, which one would it be?

EG: It would have to the the Resurgence IPA. It is my go-to every time I can’t make a decision on the 15 beers we usually have on.

RBC: Are there any beers coming up that you’re excited about?

EG: The Citmo has the be the one I am most excited about. The fact that it is coming out in cans too just makes it that much better.

RBC: Do you have any advice for people trying RBC for the first time?

EG: Come in with an open mind and a thirsty attitude and you will not be disappointed. We usually have crazy beers on like kettle sours for the experienced craft drinker and lagers for the not so well-versed.

RBC: What’s your favorite part of working at RBC?

EG: The best part of working here at RBC is the people, for sure. The beer isn’t bad either!

RBC wins two medals at national competition

Resurgence Brewing Company took home two bronze medals from the 2017 Best of Craft Beer Awards competition, held this week in Bend, Ore. Ice Boom Bock and Cucumber Saison were both honored, in the bock and field beer categories, respectively. We were one of 145 breweries who achieved medals in 84 award categories.

“I’m honored to have our beers recognized by a national panel and to see how we rank alongside beers from breweries across the country,” said owner Jeff Ware. “It’s a great experience for us to see how we’re doing on a broader scale, and we’re excited to share our beers with a wider audience. Competitions like these are a great opportunity to get an objective analysis of our beer, and it’s a great feeling to know they stack up well not only in Western New York, but nationally, as well.”

Beers were judged by 88 Beer Judge Certification Program judges, the industry standard that certifies individuals to rank and provide feedback on beer. According to the Best of Craft Beer Awards, breweries in 35 states sent beer to be evaluated, resulting in 245 medals to 145 winning breweries.

Ice Boom Bock is on tap at our Niagara Street taproom right now, and Cucumber Saison will be back in several weeks to kick off the spring season. Both beers will also be available throughout the Western New York area, in bars and restaurants where RBC beer is sold. Our brewery has been located on Niagara Street since 2014, and we now distribute our product throughout Western New York in cooperation with Try-It and Sanzo Beverage distributors. Our brewery features between 12-15 beers on tap at any given time, and our signature IPA and Blood Orange Saison is available in cans at local grocery and beer retailers.

RBC signs with Sanzo Beverage Company Inc.

Resurgence Brewing Company has signed with Sanzo Beverage Company, Inc., a Southern Tier-based distributor. This new partnership will allow RBC to broaden its distribution throughout Western New York, including markets where the brand had not previously been sold, such as Allegany, Orleans, Wyoming and Cattaraugus counties.

Resurgence Brewing Company has worked with Try-It Distributing for the past year to sell into Buffalo-area markets on a larger scale than the brewery was able to reach on its own. That relationship has allowed RBC to expand throughout the Buffalo-Niagara market. By working with Try-It, RBC has been able to sell into a wide range of establishments, with the help of the distributor’s staff of salespeople and the support of the larger company’s team. Working with Sanzo will help RBC do the same in the Southern Tier counties, helping even more beer-lovers to “experience great beer.

“We’re excited to partner with the Sanzo team to bring our beer into the greater WNY region, and offer craft beer lovers the beer experience we’ve been bringing to the Buffalo area for a couple of years now,” said RBC Owner Jeff Ware. “Since we first opened our doors on Niagara Street over two years ago, we’ve worked hard to bring the experience of our beer to people who appreciate quality, carefully crafted brews. Partnering with distributors helps us do that to a larger group of people than we could on our own.”

The new partnership with Sanzo will allow RBC to continue its mission to bring great beer to fans everywhere. The first order went out the door this week, and will hit the market shortly.

Resurgence Brewing Company is located at 1250 Niagara St. in Buffalo, N.Y. and opened its doors in June of 2014. Ware and his team are dedicated to furthering the “resurgence” of the local economy through beer as an economic and social driver, and started the taproom and biergarten on the West Side of Buffalo for that reason. Since its inception, the brewery has been dedicated to creating unique, creative beers with iconic flavors, including Sponge Candy Stout, Loganberry Wit, Blood Orange Saison, and its flagship Resurgence IPA.
