Who’s The Brew | John Blichmann of Blichmann Engineering

Amber Waves is getting to know the brewers who will be in attendance in a series called Who’s the Brew. In this special edition of Who’s The Brew we get to sit down with John Blichmann, President and Founder of Blichmann Engineering. John has more than a quarter of a century brewing experience under his belt and he’s also a BJCP judge.

On top of being an Amber Waves Brewfest sponsor, Blichmann Engineering offers the most intuitively designed, innovative brewing equipment with the highest level of quality for brewers who expect the same in their beers. A family run business here in Indiana that has supplied brewing equipment and solutions to several craft breweries that will be pouring at Amber Waves Brewfest including Upland, Teays River and Fenwick Farms to name a few.

John, thank you for taking the time to answer some questions.

Was there any defining factor that took you from brewing as a hobby to turning this passion into a career?

My introduction to home-brewing was when we were invited to dinner at my wife’s coworkers house. We arrived and her husband had a cooler full of oatmeal stuff. I asked what that was and he said “I’m making beer”! Now that was in 1991, so all grain was really uncommon back then. So shortly after I started brewing extract beer at home. Although I did recall my dad always having some beer or wine fermenting in the basement when I was little. I still use the old school bottle capper he uses, and his father before him. So I guess it was always in my heritage to brew!

With the boom of craft beer over the past couple decades, has that changed the scale of the equipment you offer? Has there been a larger demand for pro brewing over home brewing as a result?

As a leader in the home-brew market, and craft breweries being started predominantly by home brewers, getting into the commercial sized brewing equipment was pretty much a natural progression for us. We had been selling out 55 gal kettles (1 BBL batch size) to breweries for years, but we got serious about the pro brewing side of our business a few years ago.

Do you feel that home brewing helps sustain the craft beer industry?

I think the energy and creativity in the home-brewing side really drives things in the craft beer side. And it always has. Home-brewing had really grown over the past 15 years because of the desire for “craft beer” but there was limited availability. But now craft beer is everywhere. So the home-brewing market has slowed down quite a bit lately, but is still a prominent part of the whole beer scene.

What are some of the innovative trends you’re seeing in home brewing right now?

A lot of the innovation has been moving to simple all grain systems that allow about anyone with an interest the ability to all grain brew at home. Oddly, there has been an up-tick in sales to people wanting over-the-top high end equipment. Our ANVIL Brewing line covers the simple systems, and the Blichmann brand covers the high end, and we’ve seen growth in both. In the Pro market, we have really focused on the small breweries (7 BBL and below) developing very cost effective systems tailored to tap rooms and pilot systems. It is interesting how each niche has its own unique needs.

Are you still brewing yourself?

Sure do! We do most of the testing of our equipment in-house. We’ve got a number of dedicated home brewers and we all have a different approach to things, so we have that advantage in creating some really innovative and reliable products.

Have you tried anything exciting lately?

I like to brew a variety of beers actually. I love Lawson’s Finest Liquids “Sip of Sunshine” and have been brewing that. I’ve also done some really big beers like a triple mashed barley wine, a sour wee heavy, and a Russian Imperial Stout. But have also been doing some old school beers like a simple American Amber, and some basic American and English pales, all of which are in that 5% ABV or less. So very drinkable.

I believe Upland Brewing has seven locations now. Have you partnered with them since the beginning? How did that relationship come about?

Upland actually reached out to us for a quote early last year for their upcoming Fountain Square location. They are actually having the grand opening this week. After the 2018 Indiana Brewers Cup, Drew from the Pro Brewing division of the company, ran into Pete Batule at the Upland Tap Room in Broad Ripple. They talked for a while, and Pete expressed his interest in working with an Indiana Company and how that is very important to Upland Brewing. We were excited to work with Upland as well, and let them know that we could absolutely help them out with their brewing equipment needs. We love working with Indiana Breweries and helping them to succeed. After that meeting things really took off. This 7bbl brewery in Fountain Square was right in our wheelhouse. So this was really the first time we have had the pleasure of working with them. The neat thing on this particular project is that they will be using this system for test batches and to do collaborations with other Indiana Breweries.

What is most recent brewery you’ve partnered with?

We consider each sale as a partnership actually. But one brewery I got personally involved with is Textile Brewing in Dyersville IA (home of The Field of Dreams movie). Dyersville is about 20 min away from my hometown of Dubuque IA. Turns out the owner, Tom Olberding, and I were at Iowa State University at the same time, lived in the same dormitory, but had never met! So it has been a great fun helping them to achieve their goals.

Thank you so much for being an Amber Waves Brewfest sponsor. Its a great event that introduces several breweries to the area. Gives attendees a chance to sample something they might not have heard of or had the opportunity to try. All while enjoying some great music on two stages this year. And thanks again for taking the time to talk with us.

Their beers range from saisons to double India Pale Ales to double milk stouts to pilsners and lagers. 18th Street is comprised of hard working, motivated individuals who strive to be the best.

Three Floyds

From their humble beginnings in 1996—armed with only a few hundred dollars, a five-barrel Frankenstein wok-burner-fired brew kettle, repurposed open Swiss cheese fermenters (Hammond Squares) and an old Canfield’s Cola tank—”It’s Not Normal” ales and lagers were born. Three Floyds refuses to compromise “Not Normal” quality and flavor for their incredibly loyal following.

Upland

At Upland, their brewers are always experimenting, and putting their own spin on traditional brewing recipes with unique local ingredients. Their beers—from wood-aged sour ales to traditional ales and lagers—are as complex, interesting and approachable as the people who make and enjoy them.

Revolution Brewing

Revolution is Illinois largest independently-owned brewery. The change in the U.S. beer scene has undoubtedly been revolutionary. The evolving tastes of beer drinkers has demanded bigger flavors, more variety, and better beer. That’s exactly what they give you at Revolution Brewing. Between the brewery and brewpub, Revolution produces dozens of different beer styles every year. IPAs, porters, pilsners, Belgian-style ales, pale ales, barrel-aged beers—the list goes on!

Fenwick Farms Brewing Co.

Fenwick Farms Brewing Company is extremely proud to be Rensselaer’s first brewery sharing a lot of the same values as the little town that they call home. They believe in hard work and taking pride in everything they put our name on. A genuine smile, a firm handshake, and an honest day’s work. They work hard to keep all these values at their core – every day, every beer.

New Holland Brewing Co.

New Holland Brewing Company’s deep roots in the craft industry go back to 1997. Their role as an integral member of the artisan approach is something they take seriously, yet engage lightheartedly.

New Holland Brewing believes the art of craft lives in fostering rich experiences for their customers, through creating authentic beer, spirits and food while providing great service.

The Devil’s Trumpet Brewing Co.

At The Devil’s Trumpet Brewing Co., they take pride in brewing quality hand crafted beers. Their mission is to produce aromatic, clean and full flavor craft beer. Brewed with old world tradition and new world imagination.

People’s

Their passionate staff brew classic American ales, German lagers, and more with the hope of bringing people together around fresh local beer. Beer for the People… who enjoy hand crafted full-flavored beers.

Greenbush Brewing Co.

Greenbush Brewing Co. is nestled in the historic downtown of Sawyer, MI. Specializing in robust & inspired beers, southern-style barbeque, from-scratch cuisine, artisan meats & a DIY mentality, Greenbush is a haven for both beer and food enthusiasts alike.

Zorn

The legacy began back in 1871, when Bavarian immigrant Philip Zorn Jr —the son of a signature brewer—migrated to Michigan City to start his own microbrew venture. Today they introduce a new series of exceptional craft beers to rival any of the past. Michigan City’s oldest microbrewery is now its newest.

Crasian Brewing Co.

Not just another craft brewing start up, but a venture of quality, flavor and taste. Tom and Michele Bulington’s family-owned micro brewery is ready to bring Brookston, Monticello and the greater Lafayette area some of the tastiest unfiltered ales, seasonals and one-offs. Crasian’s Brewing philosophy is simple, they want their customers to enjoy that classic old brewery feel combined with small town comfort where one feels at home, no matter where home may be.

Shoreline

Shoreline Brewery has been serving handcrafted beers at the edge of Lake Michigan since it’s opening in August of 2005. To this day Shoreline is family-owned and independently run by its original founder and Head Brewer, Sam Strupeck. With twelve beers always on tap, everyone will find a beer to fall in love with, whether it be the award-winning Beltaine Scottish Ale, the fan-favorite Curse the Goat, or the seasonal Stellar Blue blueberry ale.

St John Malt Bros.

St. John Malt Brothers Craft Brewers offers a broad beer lineup keeping over 17 original beers on tap. On tap you will find a combination of traditional styles, beers with a Malt Brothers twist, some more esoteric pilot batches and barrel-aged special releases.

Evil Czech Brewery

Founded by George Pesek using the same philosophy he’s employed throughout his career as a chef and restaruanteur; use only the highest quality ingredients, surround yourself with people who are as passionate about your product as you are, improve your technique each and every day, and give your customers what they want! The result is a line of fantastic hand-crafted brews that will match any mood you’re in, and enhance any occasion you’re celebrating.

Lagunitas

Tony Magee started brewing on a stovetop homebrew kit and, after a couple batches, some stray wort had spilled down the back. When Thanksgiving night came, and the wort caught fire and burned the turkey to a crisp, Tony’s wife Carissa kindly asked him to move his new hobby elsewhere.  

He moved into an old storage shed in the town of Forest Knolls, Calif. (next to the town of Lagunitas, which Tony thought had a cool-sounding name…) and he started brewing more. The beers ranged from vile and repugnant, to delicate and exceptional. Tony grew out of that space and moved just down the road to Petaluma, bringing his recipes and the Lagunitas name with him. Whether supporting local communities by turning beer into money for the cause, or simply fueling stories and songs with IPA and other fine ales, they’ve learned one thing (aside for how to cook a turkey)… Wherever you go: beer speaks, people mumble.

Leinenkugel

In May 1867, the Leinenkugel family brewery was founded in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin by Jacob Leinenkugel. He was a family man driven by an iron work ethic, and he knew that his German family heritage would play an integral part of his brewery’s success. Today, the sixth generation of Leinenkugels continues to brew some of the same family-inspired recipes that Jacob poured his heart and soul into.

Ballast Point

The perfect balance of taste and aroma. An obsession with ingredients. An exploration of techniques. And while they savor the result, they’re just as fascinated by the process to get there. What started as a small group of home brewers, who simply wanted to make a better beer, evolved into the adventurers known today as Ballast Point.

New Oberpfalz Brewing

Taking their name from a district in Bavaria called the Oberpfalz (“Upper Palatinate”). The Oberpfalz is located in the northeast corner of Bavaria and is comprised of the frontier between Nürnberg, Germany and the German/Czech border. It is a rugged landscape, rich in brewing history, and home to many great beers. The brewery was commissioned in Dec. 2014 and released their first beers in Jan. 2015.

They produce a variety of beer styles, but specialize in classic German beer.

Teays River

At Teays River Brewing & Public House, their focus is always on quality, innovation, creativity, and fostering memorable experiences in a fun, comfortable, and casual environment. Whether it’s a quick stop for a pint or a growler refill on the way home from work, a casual evening with friends, date night, or family dinner with the kids.

Bell’s Brewery

It started with a 15-gallon soup kettle, a quest for better beer and countless batches of homebrew. The passion and personality that began Bell’s continues today through their breweries and Eccentric Café. They continue to grow and evolve, dedicated to their mission; to be fiercely independent, 100% family owned, deeply rooted to our community, committed to the environment and brewers of inspired beer.

10-56 Brewing

Owner/Brewer Erica Hemphill is on a mission to brew mindful, tasteful ales for your enjoyment. She focuses on consistent basics with recipes from Light Pilsners to the darkest of Stouts and many in between.

Firestone Walker

Beer runs deeper than blood. Funny how brothers settle things the old fashioned way. Try brothers-in-law who own a brewery together. David, AKA The Lion, and Adam, AKA The Bear, may battle, epically at times, but at least neither ever forget it’s for the love of beer.

Black Dragon Meadery

Black Dragon Meadery produces the traditional and unique meads of our award-winning Meadmaster rediscovering the lost art of meadmaking as an authentic discipline from the Olde World, dating back to the ancients and producing their motto, “Return to the Olde Ways”. What you get is as close today to what the ancients drank using real natural ingredients (raw honey, real fruit), and natural processes to achieve maximum flavor with maximum clarity without filtration, a flavor-removing process.

And more!…

Dave Hellwege of Off Square Brewing

Amber Waves is getting to know the brewers who will be in attendance in a series called Who’s the Brew. Today we got to sit down with Dave Hellwege, Brewer and co-owner at Off Square Brewing in Crown Point, IN. Dave has won several local awards and likes to think and brew outside the box. His passion for exploration and imagination come through every beer on tap at Off Square, and we are excited to have them at Amber Waves.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

The reason I got into this and the reason we built off square brewing is I homebrewed for 20 some years and always talked about opening my own place. I got to the point where my wife said to me “get off the schneid and either do it or don’t do it.” So, along with my business partner who is Phil Logan, we set up a 1-barrel system in his garage where we formulated most of the recipes for Off Square. We expanded to a 20 barrel and now running a full restaurant.

It started with a passion for craft beer, and I wanted to scale up and make a living at it somehow. That’s what we’ve been doing for the past year.

Why did you choose Crown Point?

We looked at all the communities in Northwest Indiana, and we looked at a lot of existing buildings. We would have had to re-engineer everything. Crown Point seemed like a perfect fit because where we were located on the 109th corridor, we were on the first non-industrial businesses. We are on a section of 109th Avenue close to the Sportsplex. Crown Point is adding a lot of retail and redoing a lot of this area next year, so we got in at the right time. We built the building from scratch and engineered it the way we wanted. I think we offer what Crown Point is looking to provide as far as new business development.

Tell us a little bit about your beers. What might you bring out to Amber Waves?

Long Day is kind of our flagship IPA. It was an original recipe that Phil and I developed in his garage. It’s also our best seller. It’s a classic IPA with Citra and Amarillo hops, 6.3%, a delicate balance between malt and hop character.

We might also bring out our Angry Betty Stout or a rendition of it. We have Bold Betty which is a coffee stout and our Bitching Betty which is the double version. Angry Betty is our corporate name, so that’s another one we developed.

Long Day and Angry Betty our flagships we keep on tap year-round. We also have a lot of, so I’m sure we’ll also bring something out of the ordinary when we come to Amber Waves in September.

Check out their current beer list here.

It looks like you’ve been doing some expanding.

Yeah, we’ve just installed a canning line and a couple new fermenters. We’ve been distributing through mobile canning where they can on demand, but we’re hoping to up production and get more in the retail market so it will help with the distribution in the long run.

If you come here and try something then come back the next week, you’re usually going to find a new beer. We’re really focusing on our pilot system to do several different kinds of beer because that’s where my passion has always been. I don’t like to go into a brewery two weeks in a row and see the same beers over and over. My mantra has always been let’s try new things and always have new things. I think anyone that has been to Off Square knows we do all different styles.

We’re lucky with our location just off I-65 we get travelers and new people in all the time as well as our regulars. It’s nice to see. We try to cater to everyone. Anyone who says they don’t like craft beer just hasn’t had the right craft beer.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to do this Dave, looking forward to seeing you out there!

Brew Master Steve Kamp at Evil Horse Brewing Company

Amber Waves is getting to know the brewers who will be in attendance in a series called Who’s the Brew. This week we sat down with Steve Kamp of Evil Horse Brewing Co. Steve started brewing career at home after reading an article in the Chicago Tribune about unique Christmas gifts. Steve has been a member of the American Homebrewers Association since 1984. Since then, he’s brewed hundreds of different recipes and styles and has won numerous awards in brewing competitions.

Tell us a little about Evil Horse Brewing Co.

There was a group of people I go to church with that owned a bowling alley in Crete IL, and they were looking for something to do with the building. I had already been making beer for a long time. So, we got together and came up with a plan to transform the building from a bowling alley into Evil Horse Brewing Co.

We have a really nice tap room. We are a production brewery so we have a pretty big 15-barrel brew house. …Oh, you can make quite a bit of beer.

Did you repurpose anything from the old building?

Actually, the bar and a couple longer tables are made from the bowling lanes, the high tops are the same tables that were there to start with. We took the old two-sided, neon sign with the martini glass and made it single-sided, re-did the neon and hung it in the tap room. It’s pretty cool. We still have to figure out what to do with pins & shoes.

How long have you been there?

I’ve been there since the very beginning. I started in November of 2015 and we opened April 29, 2016. We’ve been open now two years and three months selling beer.

That all started with a conversation at church?

I don’t know if it actually happened at church, but it was friends of mine I knew from church and we got together and conversation came up about the possibility of opening a brewery.
My original idea was to build it on my farm and do a farmhouse brewery. But the building was already there, and a lot of our investors liked that location and that’s how it happened.

How long had you been brewing?

I had been brewing at home since 1983. So, I’ve been a home brewer for quite some time. I’ve been a beer judge since 1986. I’ve brewed at several commercial breweries. I did a batch at Flossmoor Station in 2010 that was in the Great American Beer Festival Pro-Am. I won a Lagunitas Competition in Chicago a few years later. They flew me and a few others out to California and over a crazy 3-day period we brewed a 260-barrel batch of a black IPA which turned out really, quite good.

Tell us about the brewpub?

We’ve repurposed the building, the tap room is really comfortable, it’s a great place to come talk with friends. We have bands on the weekends. We don’t sell food, but you can bring your own. There is a restaurant upstairs you can order from.

It’s kind of the bar for people who don’t go to bars. In a way, it’s family oriented. We get a lot of parties that might be outside the norm. We actually have had baby showers, there’s been a wedding there. We do event rentals and it’s a very comfortable place to be.

What is your favorite beer to Enjoy? …Brew?  What’s the most popular?

Our most popular beer is called Downtown Hottie. It’s an American Wheat. It’s not necessarily my favorite style of beer. I’ve always been a big fan of German Style Doppelbocks and Pilsners. I love American Pale Ales. I don’t know that I actually have a favorite style. Right now, we have a very authentic German style Pilsner on tap which is probably my favorite to drink right now.

Everybody has to have a niche and I’d say our brewery brews traditional beer styles. We have a Hefeweizen (Leaping Bull), a Saison (Carnaval De Binche), a Doppelbock in the Spring (Gezelligator), a Pilsner for the Summer (Seggebruch). We have an Octoberfest fermenting right now that will be ready in September. So, we take traditional beer styles and try to do them really well.

A lot of breweries will have a wide array of hoppy beers and that’s not our thing. We have our IPA and American Pale Ale and a Double IPA, but those are the only hop forward beers we have. We have 11 other beers that are more malt driven. We’ve got a Scottish ale called Nightmare which is really quite good. It uses all Scottish malt and English hops.

That’s exciting to hear. It seems people new to craft beer have starting assimilating all craft beers to IPAs or something completely dominated by the hop character.

Yeah, it’s interesting. Now everyone keeps asking me “when are you coming out with a pumpkin beer?” We don’t brew a pumpkin beer. But we are brewing an Octoberfest. Because we are located here in Crete, we are happy brewing traditional style beers. I’m not making beer with gummy bears or popsicles, or something you might find somewhere else. We have a diverse crowd that likes the traditional beer styles. That’s our niche.

You have 14 of your beers on tap, beer cocktails, and additional bombers?

We have two beers available in six packs, the Trot Hopple and the Downtown Hottie. Sgt. Reckless is available in cans. Leaping Bull, our Hefeweizen comes in a traditional half-liter bottle. The name of our Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout is Eyjafjallajökull and people can’t pronounce it, but you know what, that’s what makes it fun!

How did that come about?

The story goes, I was at Three Floyds Dark Lord Day a few years back. And I was thinking to myself “$15 for a bottle of beer?!, I’m going to make it myself.” So, I went home a brewed a Russian Imperial Stout. I made 10 gallons in two 5-gallon fermenters. I got up the next morning and the lids of the fermenters had blown off and there was black goop splattered all over the walls. The foam was pouring down the sides like lava. It just so happened to be when the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano in Iceland had erupted. There was no air travel in Northern Europe for a week because there was so much volcanic ash in the air. I thought, what a perfect name for this beer. We started brewing it at the brewery and its aged in KOVAL Whiskey barrels which is a Distillery on the north side of Chicago. They are a little smaller than traditional whiskey barrels and they’re great to age beer in. It has a lot of chocolate notes, some hints of vanilla from the oak, and some of the whiskey flavor. We don’t rinse the barrels. We get them raw from the distillery and we fill them with beer.

So, one of the best barrels aged Russian Imperial Stouts I have ever had started in a bucket?

Yes it did.

Are there any others that the recipe starts in a bucket and moves its way up?

Actually, a lot of the beers we have at the brewery, I formulated at the brewery.

We do another beer which is our black IPA, it’s dry hopped with a Japanese hop called Sorachi Ace. It’s a really unique hop that isn’t piney, it more herbal like dill and lemon. And that was the beer I got to brew at Lagunitas. So that’s another one that started at home in a bucket and we ramped it up.

Have you done any collaborations?

Yes, we’ve done a collaboration with a brewery in New Lenox called Arrowhead Ales. We did a raspberry Berliner Weisse that’s been very popular and its back on tap now. The original collaboration sold out in three weeks. So, we immediately did another batch. It’s not sour, sour. It is tart and the raspberry flavor really rounds it out. It’s a really nice beer.

If you could do a dream collaboration what would that look like?

Ya know… I know a lot of the guys that started the craft beer movement. It would be fun to do something with Revolution Brewing or something Iike that. I have a lot of friends locally that would be a lot of fun to do a collaboration with just because I got started in brewing with some of the people who are professional brewers locally right by us. In fact, when we first opened the guys from Brickstone came out and helped us brew our first batch.

You are going to be at Amber Waves which is a new festival helping introduce the craft beer industry to Jasper County. Do you know what you’ll be sampling?

It depends just before event day. We’ll probably take some of our staple beers and then have something extra. Maybe we’ll get the Imperial Stout out there.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to do this Steve, looking forward to seeing you out there!
