Hop Notes: Goshen Brewing Company offering its first ever mug club

A game of cornhole at Goshen Brewing Co. in December?  Someone was actually enjoying themself with a leisurely pint on the patio when I stopped by. I think that I would have joined them if I had had time.

If you haven’t heard, Goshen Brewing Co. is offering it’s first ever mug club membership. A $25 annual membership will get you the privilege of $4 pours of regular gravity beers in a limited edition 16 oz. logo pint glass. In addition, you will get the 10 oz. price on high gravity beers in your 16 oz. mug; $1 off pints on Wednesdays; $2 off 64 oz. growlers and $1 off 32 oz. growlers on Thursdays; and an invitation to two club member only events with special beer releases. In my opinion, this is the best deal around.  

Goshen Brewing Co. is giving away a free membership here on Hop Notes. Send an email to with the name of five Goshen Brewing Co. beers, and I will pull a name out of a hat from all of the correct entries.  If you have won anything from Hop Notes recently, please let others have a chance.

Here are some other things to look forward to in the upcoming days and weeks. Jesse was brewing the first Goshen Brewing Co. Alt today, which will be a slightly hoppy brown ale in the low to mid 30 IBU range.  Look for this in a few weeks. Two other beers that I’m really excited about are a barrel aged Brett brown ale and the collaboration barleywine with the Goshen Homebrew Club.

Jesse has been watching and sampling the Brett brown ale which has been aging in Journeyman Distillery bourbon barrels. He told me that there are some cherry notes in the beer, which would be nice for the holidays, so watch for this to be tapped before Christmas. The collaboration barleywine will most likely be tapped sometime before the first of the year. All Rye, All Rye, All Rye and Don’t Be So Meloncoly will both make return appearances along with a new pilsner as soon as other taps free up.

Just this week, they launched a new menu and you can check out Marshall King’s column to see what he thinks. The Caramelized Brussels Sprouts absolutely rock!

Lastly, Goshen Brewing Co. beer will be showing up around the area as well. Constant Spring, Westmain TavernHuntington’s Bar and Grill, Oakwood Inn and Wings Etc. all have tapped, or will tap, their beer soon. Check in with the GBCo Facebook page to keep up to date with their beer and activities.
