on October 31, 2018 No comments

This Saturday 11/3 from 11:30am-6 pm at the brewery, we will be selling cans of Fractal Enigma+Citra. $16 per four pack, limit one case per person.
Fractal Enigma+Citra (6.8% IPA) investigates the interplay between Enigma and Citra, and our revised hopping processes.

Fractal Engima+Citra pours a resinous-hazy-straw yellow releasing complex aromas of pinto gris white wine, bright grass, and tropical melon. The taste follows the aroma with a resinous creamy mouthfeel and a firm but rounded bitterness.

More to come….

Unlikely Foragers

on October 31, 2018 No comments

This Saturday 11/3 from 11:30am-6 pm at the brewery we are pleased to release Unlikely Foragers at $12 per bottle, limit 6 bottles per person. We will release half of the bottles. The second half of the bottles will continue to mature and we plan on releasing them next May on a Saturday following next years dandelion picking along with 3 different BA variants (two different white wines and gin).

Beer is community. Back on May 27th, a team of likely friends gathered in an unlikely location to forage dandelion blossoms for Equilibrium’s first collaborative brew with the beer community. A special thanks to Mike O’Brien for sharing his beautiful field with us. Unlikely Foragers is a farmhouse ale brewed with dandelions and Equilibrium’s farmhouse culture. The younger beer was blended with threads of aged Austin for added depth and complexity and bottle conditioned for months. The beer pours a deep golden color with a light head releasing aromas of tropical lemon, floral dandelion, light funk, and bright hay. The taste is dry with a nice white wine minerality and a gentle tartness to stimulate the pallet all integrated in a balanced drink. This beer is unfiltered, unpasteurized, naturally carbonated and will continue to evolve over time if properly cellared.

This Saturday 10/20 from 11:30AM-6PM at the brewery we will be selling cans of our collaboration with Civil Society Brewing, Beard of Jupiter at $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limit subject to change.
Jupiter is known as the Roman god of lightning. It’s also the city in Florida that Civil Society calls home. Around the time we were working out logistics for Karl’s visit to collab, a customer named Matt Pfisterer snapped an awesome photo of a lightning bolt over our brewery and the name Beard of Jupiter was born.
Beard of Jupiter (8.0% ABV DIPA) pours a hazy gold tangerine color releasing aromas of tropical fruit and citrus with flavors of tangerine, melon, assorted tropical fruits, earth and passionfruit with a very strong EQ juice finish.

A new batch of MC² will also be released this weekend. $18 per 4-pk, Limit 1 case per person. This batch is very similar to the last one and features a super juicy finish.

Photon and Mmm…Osa this Saturday!🍊

This Saturday 10/13 from 11:30AM-6PM at the brewery along with New York State Of Mind we will be selling cans Photon and Mmm…Osa, both at $14 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person for each beer.
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.

Mmm… Osa (4.8% ABV) is our beloved Photon American Pale Ale conditioned on freshly zested oranges at a rate of 6 oranges per barrel. It is everything photon is, with a dominant orange presence; this citric delight is our preferred way to start the afternoon.

Crowler options for Saturday will be posted later today!

New York State of Mind

on October 10, 2018 No comments

This Saturday 10/12 from 11:30AM-6PM at the brewery, we are happy to introduce one of our two collaborations brewed here in Middletown with 3 Sons Brewing Co., New York State Of Mind (8.0% ABV DIPA) at $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change.

After brewing with Corey a few weeks ago, we took him to some of our favorite N.Y. spots including breweries, distilleries, pizza shops and sites. Corey was originally born and raised here in New York, so the grind, hustle, attitude and ambition is something we all love. New York will forever be in our hearts and souls no matter where we go. With that said and Nas’ N.Y. State Of Mind collectively being one of our favorite songs the beer practically named itself.

New York State Of Mind features one of Corey’s favorite hops, Eureka. Along with a familiar supporting cast of hops, the beer has aromas of citrus, dank earth, and cannabis. It has flavors that bursts with notes of tropical fruit, citrus, pine and resinous earth with a finish of our EQ Juice you experienced in Straight Outta The Laboratory.

Straight Outta The Laboratory!

on October 4, 2018 No comments

This Saturday 10/6 from 11:30AM-6PM at the brewery along with dHop 15, we are happy to introduce the first beer in a new series, Straight Outta The Laboratory (10.2% abv TIPA) at $22 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change.

We love science and we have been feverishly working in the lab to bring you our most recent achievements. We started with the Straight Outta Middletown grain bill, supersized the citra portion, applied our latest and greatest technology (think of the EQ juice in raining belma and last batch of MC2) and ended up with January Fluctuation on steroids with the most amount of EQ juice to date.

Straight Outta The Laboratory pours a hazy bright tangerine and has aromas of freshly squeezed citrus, lime, grapefruit, and a tropical character that makes actual tropical fruit green with envy. The flavor is explosive with notes of bright tropical orange juice, mango smoothie, and dank grass. It’s resinous and chewy with an escalating brightness and a just a touch of residual sweetness balanced by a soft bitterness. We are particularly proud of this beer as it’s the culmination of months and months of hard work (since January Fluctuation).
To celebrate this new series we are also selling a limited number of matching glasses. The glass is a stemless 14oz Rastal Harmony with a half wrap design featuring the SOTL artwork we will use in this series. Limit 1 PP, $10 each.
