HOME DELIVERY

Crooked Lane Now Delivering Beer TO YOUR DOOR!!!

We’re excited to announce home delivery of our handcrafted beer – fresh, cold, and delicious! 

With so many people staying home during this global crisis, it’s important to inject some normalcy back into our daily lives.  Crooked Lane can help by delivering the essential beer you love – directly to your door!

Starting Thursday, March 26 (tomorrow!) we’ll launch a pilot program making same-day deliveries to our community. To be successful, we’ll limit home-delivery days to Thursday thru Saturday this week, then announce next week’s schedule on Monday. This gives us a chance to gauge market interest, listen to YOUR feedback, and adapt our delivery model accordingly!  We’ll look at expanding coverage next week. So if you don’t see your town listed as an option, that may change soon.

Here’s how it works.

  • Go to our website (www.crookedlanebrewing.com) and from the main menu select “Order Online.” Click on “Beer,” then select your items and quantities, and select “Pick-Up” or, as of Thursday, “Home Delivery!”
  • All orders received before 4 P.M. will be delivered that same day before 8 P.M.  The driver will call to confirm delivery time and address while enroute. 
  • All deliveries must be paid for online (no C.O.D) and the adult (21 or older) who ordered must be present by confirming with Valid ID.
  • $50 minimum order. $10 Delivery fee
  • Free delivery for orders over $100.

In times like these, you, our community, are our lifeline. Together we will persevere and emerge stronger. Support your local businesses!

The Pilot Batch

What, smaller not bigger? Yes, sometimes smaller is better.

The pilot batch program at Crooked Lane Brewing Co. (CLBC) was developed around the same core quality standards as our large scale production, but with a focus on ultimate creative freedom. We are free to explore niche classic styles, as well as wildly experimental beers and ingredients. Producing just two kegs of beer at a time, the sky is the limit in determining what to brew, as well as giving our staff the creative license to take a chance on a new idea.

Our pilot system produces 1 Bbl (31 gallons) of finished beer as compared to 15 Bbl (465 gallons) on our large production system. This smaller volume remains extremely fresh during its time on tap in our tasting room. We take in customer feedback on our latest brew, and often scale up the ones we love.

On this foggy morning, we are brewing our Alt beer, Alt 49. Alt Bier is a traditional German style from the Dusseldorf region along the Rhine River. Unlike the paler Kölsch-style ale from Cologne we are better know for, Alt is brown ale with more malt character, but also has complex yeast and European Noble hop flavors. Following a cool fermentation and extended conditioning period, Alt comes together with lager-like qualities. The use of traditional German noble hops provides a slightly spicy and herbal character that pairs very well with the bready and biscuit-like malt backbone. The keys to success for this style are good balance between malt and hops and a restrained fermentation character.

We are targeting release for Alt 40 on January 4th.
