Adrestia

on November 29, 2018 No comments

Collaboration Saturday Continues! In addition to all the amazing stuff happening with Other Half, this Saturday 12/1 from 11:30AM – 6PM at the brewery, we will debut cans of our Seven Island BreweryCollaboration: Adrestia (8.2% DIPA) at $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change.

Seven Island came to brew with us all the way from Corfu Greece!
Last year Ratebeer awarded us top 10 best new breweries in the world. We were not rated number 1. However, during Hop City in Leeds, UK, we were approached and congratulated by number 1 new brewery in the world: Seven Island Brewery. We struck up a great relationship with them and decided we wanted to work together to synergistically blend our two hop forward styles. It was only natural to name the beer Adrestia, after the Greek Goddess of Balance.

We used a grain bill loaded with wheat and oats and hopped this beer heavily with citra, belma, and galaxy. It pours a very hazy bright yellow and has an aroma of peaches, tropical fruit, and a touch of strawberry. The flavor follows the aroma with our signature EQ Juice profile.

Also available this Saturday, We have one of our best batches of of MC^2 yet! $18 per 4-pk, 1 case per person.

Dream Lab

This Saturday 12/1 from 11:30AM – 6PM at the brewery, we will debut cans of our other Other Half Collaboration: Dream Lab (10.2% TIPA) at $22 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. This release will be a normal Saturday release.

Think if Dream Wave Fluctuation and Straight Outta the Laboratory had a baby with no lactose. When Sam and Anthony from Other Half Brewing Company came up to brew, we were all discussing how much we liked our first EQ/OH collab Dream Wave Fluctuation, and on the EQ side, how much we like our recent beer Straight Outta the Laboratory (SOTL). We ended up taking EQ’s SOTL grain bill, modified an aggressive Other Half hopbill of Galaxy and Citra, and ran it through the SOTL process to bring out the EQ juice. This is how dreams are made.

Dream Lab pours a glowing opaque tangerine color releasing aromas of passion fruit, lime, peach, and pineapple all integrated with a bright citrus backdrop. The taste is a bright creamy tropical of flavor with an escalating brightness buoyed by a soft velvety mouth feel. This beer is extremely well balanced and drinkable. In fact, I finished the whole can while writing this and caught half a buzz… please drink responsibly. – PEte

Single Thread

on November 21, 2018 No comments

As a surprise, we are releasing Unlikely Foragers Single Thread today at $12 per bottle, limit 1 pp. We blended the majority of Unlikely Foragers with base Austin to add depth and complexity. As an experiment, we bottled 200 of the unblended base and allowed it to condition for several months. Unlikely Foragers Single Thread will be released today to celebrate the holiday, throw back to spring time, and the start of our taproom journey. This version is more dandelion forward with a very soft and gentle acidity. It’s beautifully soft and balanced.

Lucid Dream Wave

on November 17, 2018 No comments

Thanksgiving is a time to gather, be thankful, and share things with people close to heart. In the spirit of family and collaboration on Wednesday 11/21 from 12:00PM – 5:00 PM we are beyond excited to debut cans of our Other Half Brewing Company Collaboration: Lucid Dream Wave. $20 per 4-pack, limit 1 case per person. Limit subject to change.

We are closed Thurs – Sunday for holidays and we will not be setting any of this beer aside for later release.

During a lucid dream, the dreamer is awake, conscious of the space and environment around them. It’s almost a doorway into an alternative universe, one that we control. Creating this controllable fantasy began with Dream Wave Fluctuation, increasing the dry hop, blending Citra, Amarillo, Galaxy, and El Dorado, and applying Other Half’s Dream treatment.
Lucid Dream Wave pours a hazy glowing tangerine color releasing aromas of passion fruit, pineapple, and candied peaches and cream all integrated with a juicy twist. The taste is loaded with EQ juice that blends with a bright creamy tropical wave of flavor with a touch of sweet that is dangerously drinkable and balanced.
We will also have a limited amount of Rastal Lawrence collaboration glasses along with a small run of tee’s available. Glass and shirts each limited to 1pp.
More news on our fundraiser happening the morning of the release coming soon!

Hop Wave 4

This Saturday, 11/17, from 11:30am-6pm at the brewery, we are happy to introduce Hop Wave 4. $20 per four pack, limit 1-case per person. Limits subject to change.

Hop Wave 4 (DIPA 8.0%. abv) is a blend of six different hops woven together with a healthy dose of wheat and oats adding just a touch of lactose. Hop Wave 4 pours a vibrant hazy yellow releasing notes of tropical fruit salad and cannabis. The taste is dank-citrus with a creamy sorbet mouthfeel featuring the coveted EQ Juice on finish you’ve been experiencing with the last few releases.

We will also have a fresh batch of Photon available!
$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.

Later this Saturday, keep an eye on social media for a special announcement on our 11/21 release!

This Saturday 11/10 from 11:30AM-6PM at the brewery, we are happy to introduce Fluctuation Wave at $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change.
Fluctuation Wave (8.5 % DIPA) takes our beloved DIPA Fluctuation, supersizes the hop bill, adds a touch of lactose, and uses our revised hop process. The tasting notes for this are simple: This beer is the DIPA version of Straight Outta The Laboratory with even more EQ juice and a smooth lactose finish. We’re very excited about this one.

Another juicy batch of MC² will also be available on Saturday. $18 per 4-pk, Limit 1 case per person.

Mass Fluxes

on November 1, 2018 No comments

This Saturday 11/3 from 11:30AM-6PM at the brewery, we are happy to introduce Mass Fluxes (8.0%) at $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change.

That lab juice is loose, this time in a DIPA. The next step in developing a mathematical model to optimize a desired flavor profile is understanding the relevant mass fluxes.
Lessons learned from control volume helped create Straight Outta the Laboratory, which in turn helped us identify the relevant mass fluxes to create that EQ Juice.

Mass Fluxes pours a hazy bright tangerine and has aromas of freshly squeezed tropical fruit, lime, grapefruit, and freshly cut grass. The flavor is bright tropical orange juice with mango, with a resinous and chewy mouthfeel. The finish has an escalating brightness balanced by a soft bitterness.
