I know…talk about a title that grabs your attention, aye? No, we are not going to speak abut the world of the 1800’s, or the ‘familiar’ usage of a chamber pot. In fact, we are going to talk abut an amazing company that is just about ready to ‘open its doors’ and allow everyone to drink some seriously great flavors, tastes and find themselves absolutely loving the fact that the Poo Poo Porter brand of brew is in their fridge just waiting for the party to begin.
Chamber Pot Brewing Company – this is the company that is getting clicks, hits, and brand name ‘yapping’ all over the World Wide Web, because the product stemming from this business is not only delicious and massively fun to drink with friends, but also because the ‘fun’ and whimsy that comes along with it is unknown in the brewing sector.
Outhouse Stout, Bed Pan Brown, I. P. All the Time, the Golden River Lager…these names of these new brews will show you that not only are the people behind these creations extremely fun and entertaining, but once you taste this brew you’ll never go back to the boring, humdrum world of Coors Light or Budweiser. Let’s be honest anyway, when it comes to Budweiser, the coolest thing about it are the horses and the Super Bowl commercials with the talking frogs.
For those of you who don’t know, a chamber pot is usually made of pottery, metal or glass, and is a round, fairly deep cooking vessel with a handle and often a lid in order to store your coffee, tea, or even your pot of stew for dinnertime.
But what brewers – true brewers, who love the industry and want to make the best flavors and most amazing tastes for people – have found, is that chamber pot brewing is a great source of production to bring these ‘lines’ to the public. With genius minds behind the concept, including Matt Muth (who is the owner of the 406 Brewery, the home of handcrafted beers that is gaining a great deal of positive public opinion), they have been working and slaving over the chamber pot (I know, a joke could be added in here, but we’ll pass for educational purposes) for the production of the good, old American beer! I mean, really, without beer – whether you are a fan or not – football, hot summer days, mowing the lawn, public and private parties – none of this daily stuff would be possible or even remotely fun without it!
Brewing is also one skill that has found itself in the center of controversy; hence, it has a shady past which makes it as fun as the bootleggers who created the liquor needed for the speakeasy’s to the mobsters who worked their tails off and shot off other peoples’ tails in order to supply neighborhoods across the land. In fact, brewing has taken place since around the 6th millennium BC (Again, perhaps a joke could be inserted here, but considering those ancient, stunning buildings that STILL stand today, I would say that drinking the brew truly helped their imaginations soar!)
There is archaeological evidence (just like the dinosaurs) that shows brewing techniques were used in ancient Egypt. Descriptions of various beer recipes can even be found in Sumerian writings – which is some of the oldest known writing of any sort. Give them credit, after all – there were notes left behind that have created controversy in politics, science, religion, wars, beliefs, and now, the brewski! Add to that the brewing facet of our economy which, by the way, makes up a great chunk of most western economies and offers a great deal of jobs to our workforce, and you have to give an ‘All Hail to the Brew!’
Brewing, by the way, also takes a great deal of work. This is not an industry for the lazy by any stretch of the imagination (remember the Egyptian buildings? You are talking serious workers here!) And even if you have the work ethic, you also need that palate that even Chef Ramsey would bow down to in order to create beers that are the ‘best of the best’ that will keep people coming back for more.
Brewing specifically refers to the process of steeping, which is used to make everything from tea to sake. Now, technically, wine and cider aren’t brewed but rather “vinted,” seeing as that the entire fruit is pressed, and then the liquid is extracted.
The basic ingredients needed to brew are water; a starch source that is able to be fermented (converted into alcohol); a brewer’s yeast to create the fermentation; and a flavoring, such as hops, to offset the sweetness of the malt. However, secondary sources are then used, my dear people – sources that can range from anything you can think of – fruits, vegetables, starches, other liquors, you name it! You hear of many people speaking about wine tastings or visiting the Napa Valley, etc., to sit down for days on end and take sips from millions of glasses that are handed to them, but beer tastings and beer festivals are even more fun (not kidding. With the beer festivals you also receive the most amazing food from all different countries to go along with the brews).
Being that beer is composed mostly of water, various regions in the world are better suited to making beer because of the different mineral components that are found in their water supply – giving them a regional character. As an example, take Ireland (which, as we know, is really a ‘beer loving’ country). Dublin boasts hard water, which is great for making stout, such as Guinness; while Pilsen has soft water, which is great for creating pale lager, such as Pilsner Urquell.
But the Chamber Pot Brewing goes one step further by using its unending source of amazing minerals located in Bozeman, Montana, in order to make the brews that you and I want to have in our refrigerators at a moment’s notice. Plus, let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to serve the Poo Poo Porter? Talk about a fun party!
Right now www.chamberpotbrewing.com is opening up a brand new website to reveal all their newest and coolest products to the world! I say, jump on board, people. This is one company that’s not only going to supply a great product, but it’s going to be seriously entertaining to be a part of it all!
Until Next Time, Everybody,
