It's the holiday season. But today seems like the best of holidays. It the longest night of the year. Time to celebrate the coming of light. Each day will now get longer and longer. The solstice is here. At least in the northern part of our globe. All our friends down south are hanging out on the beach. We have our new beer cellar set up now. Stocking up for the long holiday is key to surviving the cold.

Bohemian announces its expansion, two new products, and awards
by Jacob Hodgen
Over the last few months, the industrious gentlemen at theBohemian Brewery in Midvale have been very busy. You might think that coordinating a massive expansion that has helped allow them to nearly double their barrel per year output would be sufficient, but this family owned enterprise still has few tricks up its sleeve.
Though they have been brewing their award winning Cherny Bock for years now, thirsty Utahns have been discontent with only being able to find it on tap. Bohemian’s answer is to launch Cherny Bock in cans, and this month over 55,000 will ship from their Midvalebrewery to locations around the region, and even as far as South Carolina.
Pete Petras is the son of Bohemian owner Joe Petras. He maintains an active role in the growing family business, and he is an evangelist of aluminum cans, which Bohemian has exclusively adopted instead of bottles.
“Cans are much more environmentally friendly,” Pete says. “People are much more likely to recycle them. They weigh a fraction of what bottles do empty, and so the carbon footprint of just getting the package to the brewery is significantly lower. Plus they chill quicker and block out 100% of all light. There really is no comparison.”
Pete took Utah Stories on a tour of their newly expanded facilities and showed us the canning process. He says that massive canning machines used to be impossible for smaller, craft breweries to be able to afford or find space for, but recent advances in technology have simplified the process
“Other breweries use bottles,” Pete tells us, “because they can buy up a bunch of bottles and then just slap on whatever label they want. They do it because it’s easy. Buying cans requires commitment, and that’s what we are all about.”
Pete tells us that they have also been promoting the use of refillable glass growlers. “There’s no better way to go green than to take your growler down to your local brewery for a refill of your favorite hand crafted beer.”
Bohemian has also just launched a new holiday beer entitled Pumpkin Patch. And before we could conjure up memories of the ghosts of bad pumpkin ales from our Christmas pasts, Pete reminds us that at Bohemian, it’s all lagers all the time.

We were out in the desert this weekend playing the sand. There's nothing like a beer at the end of a long off road adventure in the Bohemian Rail.

Join our team for the month of Movember. We're fighting prostate cancer. The Mo, slang for moustache, and November come together each year for Movember.
Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st clean-shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month. The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men. Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.

"Darkness Cometh!" That's right, we are now offering our darker, richer and roastier black lager in the form of a canned Schwarzbier called "Cherny Bock". Can you say awesome?
Photo Credit: Pete Petráš
From the Bohemian site:
"The word Cherny literally means ‘black‘ in Czech referring to the color of the rather surprising dark Schwarzbier with gentle bitterness to appeal your palette. A true gem to be discovered by specialty beer lovers."
Bohemian is currently selling cans of their Cherny Bock the brewery but those of you in their distribution area should see it on shelves relatively soon. For those of us that don't live close to the brewery, well, we can just sit around and hope that maybe someone we know who does will send us some!
Check out this great video of Bohemian Brewery's canning line filling and sealing fresh cans of Cherny Bock!

We're had a blast with all the other Utah breweries at the Utah Beer Fest. Everyone was in having a blast and the event quickly filled to capacity by 3:00pm. I hope the event is bigger next year.
