Eudora Brewing Company, located at 4716 Wilmington Pike in Kettering, has just announced they will be debuting their newest beer, Le Cheval Magique on Wed, August 14th. It’s a Belgian Golden Strong Ale made with Belgian yeast, Belgian malt, and Belgian hops. The yeast gives it a fruity/spiced character.
At 8.9% alcohol by volume, it’s the strongest beer they’ve brewed to date. If you’re wondering what the name means, it’s named after a mystical horse that is said to live in a wooded area of Belgium. “Cheval Magique” is French for “magic horse”. Just in case you didn’t know, French is one of the official languages of Belgium. Anyway, it will be on tap at Eudora starting tomorrow, and they will be rotating it with the Mother Fuggle from this day forward. Come in and try it, it’s MAGICALLY delicious!
Eudora is also the only Dayton area brewery that allows you to be the brewmaster. A variety of recipes are available for you to brew. Whether you’ve brewed before or you have no idea what you’re doing, they pro’s at Eudora are there to guide you through every step of the process and make it as easy and as fun as possible.
After scheduling an appointment, you’ll be asked to choose a recipe. After deciding on what recipe you want to brew, you’ll start heating up your strike water and fetch your ingredients with the help from a staff member. The staff member will then help you through the brewing process (or simply supervise to make sure you’re doing okay) from start to finish. After the actual brewing process is complete, you leave the beer with them to ferment in their fermentation room for 2-4 weeks. They monitor the fermentation and carbonate the beer once it’s done fermenting.
You’ll then return to Eudora on your previously-scheduled bottling day to package the beer. After bottling and applying labels, the beer is yours to take home and enjoy.
A 5-gallon batch makes about 40-45 12oz. bottles of beer and runs about $70 for a standard series beer like a Blonde Ale, Hefeweizen, English Brown Ale, Irish Red Ale or Belgian Pale Ale. Premium beers like the Robust Porter, Milk Stout or Belgian Dubbel will run you $85 for a 5 gallon batch and you can even step up to a Strong Scottish Ale, Imperial IPA or Russian Imperial Stout for about $100 a batch. Add bottles and custom labels for another $30. For more info on the Brew Your Own option, please contact Eudora at (937) 723-6863.
