This Saturday, 6/9 from 11:30am-6pm at the brewery alongside Photon and TABA Mango we will be selling cans of dHop4. $20 per four pack with a 1-case limit per person. Limits are subject to change.
dHop4 is a blend of SIX different hops that were woven into its creative process along with a healthy dose of wheat to help interact with this lupulin laden elixir. dHop4 weighs in at 8.0% ABV and pours an vibrant hazy yellow releasing notes of fruit salad and cannabis. The taste is dank-citrus with a creamy and light mouth feel.
This Saturday June 9th marks the one year anniversary of our very first can sale. We want to take this opportunity to thank all of the people who supported us over the past year. We have grown closer with our community, built relationships with many and have made wonderful friends along the way. We are thankful for all of it and all of you. We are thrilled to be located in such a blossoming region for beer. With that said we wanted to bring back a beer in can form to commemorate the day.
This Saturday 6/9 from 11:30am-6pm at the brewery we will be selling cans of Photon at $14 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. Photon (4.8% ABV) is our light and crushable American Pale Ale loaded with pacific northwest hops. It pours a very hazy orange, releasing well-blended notes of apricot, tangerine, peach, mango, and pineapple. It tastes of soft juicy tropical fruits, hop resins, and a hint of biscuit.
This Saturday, 6/9 at the brewery from 11:30am-6pm and alongside Photon we will be releasing There and Back Again Mango (6% ABV) at $15 per bottle. Limit 4pp. (subject to change) There and Back Again is a tale of a spontaneous fermentation, isolation, confiscation, rejuvenation, mutation, and finally perturbation. This sour American wild ale is a collaborative effort with our dear friend Dr. Jason Rodriguez. We took our house “honey badger” mixed culture (no saccharomyces) and allowed it to ferment and sour over several months before refermenting it on mango. The result is a bright and clean mango flavor boosted by the tropical expression of our microorganisms. This beer is unfiltered, unpasteurized, naturally carbonated and will continue to evolve over time if properly cellared.
Meet Kyle, he was the first of the now three employees who share the same name. To limit confusion at the brewery, he is known around here as OG Kyle. OG Kyle is our assistant brewer. He works closely with Ryan to produce our beer. Some of his duties include preparing and gathering ingredients needed for the brew day like hops, grain and yeast. He also takes care of dry hopping, transfers between, and carbonation as well as overseeing packaging. He maintains equipment for beer production including prepping the fermenters and brite tanks while keeping an eye on ingredient inventory, scheduling and distribution of packaged beer.
