What breweries have been most influential in the development of your recipes and styles?
There are countless breweries that have influenced us in one way or another, but some of our all time favorites are: Anchor Brewing, Sierra Nevada, New Glarus, Dogfish Head, Bell's, Samuel Smith, & Fuller's.
Do you have any gluten free options?
We almost always have local hard cider on tap, which is gluten-free. We frequently brew beers with the use of Clairity Ferm, an enzyme that reduces gluten levels in traditional barley malt-based beers to a level that is acceptable for some with gluten intolerance issues. While these are not actually GF beers, they seem to be acceptable to many of our patrons who have gluten sensitivity issues. Our bartenders will be happy to identify these beers for you.
Which of your vinyl records do you play most often?
This answer comes directly from Tim, our head bartender:
Angel Eyes, Best of Cannonball, Soulful Vibes, Music to Watch Girls By, Encores from Errol Garner, Concert by the Sea, our double Stan Getz album, Mame from Louie, both JD albums, String Along with Count Bassie...that kinda stuff bro.
Why "New World" Brewing?
Great question! We’ve always felt “new world” on a few levels: The way we started the business by crowdfunding and community support; our focus on staying true to our mission of creating a vibrant social space and operating a fiscally self-supporting and sustainable business; and brewing beer with interesting ingredients and creative processes and equipment. Much of what we are considering “new” is actually very old, but has been forgotten or ignored in mainstream business and brewing.
When and how can you become a member?
Memberships begin January 1 and July 1 and we sell memberships in June and December every year. You can purchase a membership in person at the brewery tap room or through our website (only during open enrollment times). The best way to stay up to date is to sign up for our email list. Please check out our Membership page for all the details on CSB membership.
When will you have outdoor seating?
We’ve tried. The city code doesn’t allow sidewalk cafes for a business like ours. From what we’ve gathered, it’s only allowed for restaurants, where at least 50% of sales come from food. So, if/when we decide to open a kitchen/restaurant… maybe.
In choosing new beers to make, is your creative process collaborative or does one of you just decide you want to make something and do it?
Both! Sometimes we collaborate (often, we collaborate with others, too – homebrewers, other craft brewers, and culinary experts) and sometimes we fly solo.
What is the history of the building that Jubeck New World Brewery resides?
We’re told it was originally a department store, but it has also housed a Maid-Rite restaurant, and formerly it was “Asian Gourmet” restaurant and grocery.
