In 1995, Weyerbacher Brewing Company was founded by home brewer Dan Weirback as a small local brewery in Easton, Pa.  We, the brewers of Weyerbacher, are continually pushing the envelope of taste experiences, obliterating style guildlines and having a blast while we’re at it!  Double IPAs, Belgians, hybrid styles, invented styles, barrel-aged styles, and sour beers are all part of a journey that never ends.  Great beer brings people together, refreshes our souls and stimulates our imaginations.  Share a Weyerbacher with someone today and spread the good cheer.  Be sure to come back here and let us know what you think.

    Brother in law brought the Heresy from New York and brought it to Michigan for my birthday. Its one of the best Imperial Stouts I have ever had. Great OAK flavor. I have been making my own beer for about seven months. I have made three batches. I would like to know how to get the oak flavor in the beer. I am hoping I can do it without the barrel. I take a bourbon flavor from it that is the main aspect of what separates it form other stouts, but not over powering. I would really like to know how you get that to happen. I do understand that you may not want to share comments on this, but I want you to know that I love this beer.

      You can get oak chips from any homebrew supply shop/site. They work almost as well as the barrel. You can play around with different levels of roast to see what you like. In order the get the bourbon flavor, try soaking the chips for a while in your favortie flavor before adding the chips to the beer.

    Your pumpkin ale may be the only thing I look forward to in fall

  8. avatar Tim says:

    What are the chances of you putting November in the seasonal rotation? I think that it’s my favorite of the Brewer’s Select series. Please consider it …. I only have 4 bottles left! Great coffee beer.

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Slim, unfortunately. Enjoy the beer you have and don’t over-age it!
      It is awesome, though, isn’t it? One of my favorites, too. I have only a few bottles left myself. Cheers!

      • avatar Tim says:

        Oh well, I tried. Given this information I had to do something so I went to Homestead, bought some of this coffee, and brewed a porter with it. I just bottled and the sample tasted great. I really love this blend of coffee in a beer. Maybe I’ll call it November Porter.

  9. avatar GV says:

    “Merry Monk” is INCREDIBLE!!!

    I savor each bottle!

  10. avatar David says:

    Any hints on how I might clone Merry Monks? I’m sure the yeast is key, but how do you get that nice mellow residual sweetness? Any crystal malts? It’s my favorite golden ale! Stand aside, Duvel!

  11. avatar Jake says:

    hey i know you guys have got some mixed reviews on idiots drool but i just wanted to say I love that beer. I would say its in my top 3 beers of all time. Don’t know if you will ever do it again as it takes so long to make. But i sure hope you do as 6 bottles is not enough.

  12. avatar Dennis says:

    Whoa! Just had my first sip of Merry Monks. What a taste treat! I’m not a beer gourmet so I don’t know a lot of micro brews to compare but Merry Monks is highly interesting. Do I taste cherry? Oak? Would like some other opinions so I can educate my brain in regard to what my taste buds are experiencing. Great stuff. Seems to pack a punch, too. Thank you Weyerbacher.

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      There are lots of fruity notes that come out in that beer… a characteristic of Belgian styles of beer. Most notably, though sometimes hard to put your finger on, is a banana aroma which is provided compliments of the yeast! Enjoy!

  13. avatar matt says:

    I was turned on to weyerbacher from a few guys at work. I in turn introduced my buddy and his brother to it and now you have three fans. We did the tour last Saturday and loved everything. My buddy actually drove from work Friday to Easton to get a 1/16 of Blanche and the flyers,Nice combo..amazing stuff..as I’m sippin on Quad..

  14. avatar Randy says:

    This is probably my wife’s favorite beer. We live close enough to stock up and visit that tasting bar, and have just recently. Loved it. Following up on the comment you made to Dave about the simplicity of the recipe, are there no bitter agents added, or are they just mellowed out from aging? It’s the maltiness I think she really likes.

  15. avatar WilliaM Watkins says:

    What beers did you serve at the Washington crossing brewfest …

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Slam Dunkel and Blanche. SD was the darker beer, Blanche the Yellower beer. Both unfiltered wheat beers.

  16. avatar Bob Rosko says:

    I have just tried your Pumpkin Ale, and it was AWESOME1 Pumpkin beer is my favorite seasonal brew, and your is one of the best I have found. I live near Milwaukee, WI. home of Lakefront Brewing Co., which also makes a great pumpkin beer. Hope to find more of your beers here in cow country.

  17. avatar August West says:

    Hey Everybody! August West Here, reporting in from Manalapan, NJ. 4 1/2Days without Electric is about 3 1/2Days more than I need. Because of extremely limited Refrigeration capabilities, my Beer was left out in the Warmth, literally. Thank God for my 62 Degree Cellar which kept my Brew at decent Storage Temperature, and thank God for Weyerbacher!!!! Every one of my Barrel Aged Ales was exceptional at room Temp. I don’t know how I would have survived this past week without them. Quad (not aged), Whiskey, Heresy, Insanity, were all fantastic with no Refrigeration. THANK YOU for your contribution to our personal “Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort” here in Central Jersey!!!

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Glad to hear you are OK, GV! Those beers are soooo happy at cellar / room temp. Hope the power is restored soon for you!

  18. avatar Peter says:

    I love your beer but cannot find it locally. It would be a great help if you could put a “find weyerbacher” tab on your website.

  19. avatar Rich says:

    When will Heresy be available?

  20. avatar Christopher says:

    I recently tried your barley wine, and I must say that I was very impressed. Smooth and strong, without being overbearing. I just bottled my belgian tripel and I was wondering if the bottles should be stored on their sides to keep the corks moist. I’ve heard varying opinions on this, and I’m not sure who’s right. Thanks.

  21. avatar Catherine Procita says:

    I recently purchased “Blithering Idiot”…..all I can say is WOW! I love it! I can’t wait to try your other enticing beverages! I had no idea you were a local Brewery! (I’m in Phillipsburg, NJ). I feel like a Blithering Idiot! lol I must admit, when looking for something new, I was drawn to the “Jester”! I LOVE Jesters too! Thank you for making such delicious brew!

  22. avatar Mike O says:

    When are you going to give us your brew recipes for a 5 gallon batch? I was told you were planning on doing this soon. Thank you and keep the great beerbrewing.

  23. avatar Matt says:

    Just cracked open my last bottle of Slam Dunkel from my cellar. It is a bittersweet moment, so sad to see this beer on the retired list, one of my absolute favorites of yours. Cheers!

    • avatar Natalie says:

      Hi Matt,
      While Slam Dunkel has been discontinued, we are brewing something right up your alley for our 18th Anniversary! Eighteen will be released in the beginning of June and is the 8th installment in the Anniversary series. Eighteen is a 11.1% ABV Weizenbock with complex bready wheat, dark fruit and chocolate flavors balanced perfectly spicy phenols and banana esters. Eighteen will be bottle conditioned and made available in 12 oz bottles and kegs. Check out our announcement about it here! We hope you’ll enjoy this brew also!

  24. avatar Dennis G says:

    After seeing it a few times, I finally picked up some Blithering Idiot. To start, this is a great beer. On top of that, it’s really reasonably priced for a Barleywine of respectable quality and ABV. It’s definitely going to be in the regular rotation along with Merry Monks and Insanity. With three of my top ten favorite beers, I’ve got to call Weyerbacher my #1 brewey. Your efforts are enjoyed. Thanks,

  25. avatar Jon D. says:

    Just tried your Verboten. Are you kidding me? This is one of the best beers out there. Great job guys!

  26. avatar Ian Roberts says:

    I’m not really a pumpkin ale bloke, but this year my wife and I thought we’d try a good cross-section of them and see where we stand.

    Your Imperial Pumpkin Ale was bloody brilliant and streets ahead of everything else we tried. In the glass it looked like a enormous glass of Scotch: Still, no carbonation, no lacing. And those smooth, warming flavours…Debby’s choice word was “sophisticated”. Excellent work lads!

  27. avatar Dave R says:


    I buy every case of Insanity that I can find. I am in love with this beer. I would like to try and clone Blithering Idiot some day and see what tweaks I can make. Any advice on cloning Blithering Idiot would be appreciated more than you can imagine.

  28. avatar Jim Clarke says:

    Had a taste of Insanity while at the Tap House in Wayne NJ. Looking to bring some home and looking for a local retailer. Thanks J C

  29. avatar Steve R says:

    Looking thru some old beer ratings from way back in1996-97. I found two Weyerbacher beers no longer offered and not listed on the website: “Easton Pale Ale” and “Black and Tan”. Any info on these beers? Have they resurfaced under another name?

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Hey, Steve! Nah, all of the old original brews have been replaced over time to keep pace with the changing palate of the the customers who buy our brews. We’re now known for higher ABV beers and Belgian twists on some styles. Those two are among the most basic we ever made. There is nothing wrong with basic, mind you – it’s just not what we’re known for and therefore does not sell well with our name on it.

  30. Love every beer DA BACHER makes. No one can compare with what they offer. So many choices and all amazingly beautifully cared for….TASTE IT! YOU’LL SEE!!!

  31. The brew u r producing are awesome and have been for quite some time. I have turned alot of folks from quite a few states onto them. Simcoe breakfast beer is my fave! And now one that begins a with a c? Too many letters for me to spell. Sure was and is a fantastically brewed beverage.

  32. avatar Rob Carter says:

    Awesome beer!!!! Traditionally I drank what I thought was good beer, I was WRONG!!!! This is by far the best beer I’ve ever tasted. I have been baptized in the beer of Weyerbacher!!!! I am saved!!!! Thanks Weyerbacker! Hmmm….. now if you could introduce a loyalty program so I can feed my wife and still drink your beer… I think I can slack on the feeding till I see her backbone, but, I’m not sure??

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Backbones are cool, feel free to divert funds as you see fit. There’s plenty of great nutrients in our beer!

  33. avatar Paul Bader says:

    How about another Dubble! Althea was awesome!

  34. avatar saxon says:

    Hey guys just wanna say I love the blithering idiot and merry monks! Yall have superb beer wwirh excellent flavor and style. Im from texas!

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Hey Saxon! Unfortunately, we’re only in 18 states and none of ‘em touch Texas. You need to call the Snowman and the Bandit or hop onto http://www.beeradvocate.com and find someone to trade with. We can;t ship beer direct or outside of our territory, sorry! Really appreciate you reaching out and passing along the compliments!
