This Saturday 2/2, from 11:30AM – 6PM at the brewery, we will be selling cans of Fluctuation. $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limit subject to change.
Fluctuation (8.1% ABV DIPA) pours a very hazy tangerine color, releasing bright tropical notes of passion fruit, mango, pineapple, and lychee with an undercurrent of sorbet and cream. Fluctuation tastes highly resinous and tropical with an assertive yet soft bitterness. This batch has a very bright and refreshing EQ juice finish. We consider Fluctuation to be perfectly unbalanced.

We will also have a new batch of MC² (8.0% ABV DIPA) available. This batch is considered to be one of the very best yet, ending with an extremely juicy profile.
$18 per 4-pk.

Reverse Migration

on January 30, 2019 No comments

To help NY deal with these freezing temperatures, we’re bringing some of that Florida pastry stout heat up North with our 3 Sons Brewing Co. collab, Reverse Migration (11% ABV). This adjunct stout will be available for on-site consumption only in an 8 oz pour for $8 in our taproom starting this Thursday 1/31 at 4 PM. A full bottle may also be enjoyed onsite for parties of two or more. Please join us to celebrate the opening of our onsite experience in addition to 3 Sons winning best new Brewer in the world!

Reverse Migration is our first pastry stout we brewed here in Middletown with our good friend Corey from 3Sons. It’s the thicccccest and most decadent stout we’ve made yet and we allowed it to mature for several months before further aging on Bolivian cacoa, toasted cocconut, and a touch of coffee from our friends at Boonton Coffeeroasters. It pours dark and viscous releasing potent cocoa and coconut aromas with a touch of roasted coffee. The sip has a full viscous mouthfeel with rich, sweet, and decadent flavors balanced by a subtle bitterness from the chocolate and coffee. Note: no lactose was harmed in this beers creation.

We will also have these beers on for pours:
Thursday and Friday:
•Hop Wave 6
•Straight Outta The Laboratory

Saturday and Sunday:
•Straight Outta The Laboratory
•dHop 1
•Paradise City Pineapple/Lychee/Peach

Draught list subject to change based on availability.

This Saturday 01/26, from 11:30AM-6PM at the brewery, we are happy to welcome back dHop 1 at $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change.

dHop is our DIPA series that investigates how changing different aspects of hops changes our DIPAs, which will allow us to optimize our hops and hopping procedure. dHop1 is our 8.5% DIPA with an intense mosaic forward hop bill. Applying what we’ve learned from this series, we were able to pull a very bright and tropical mosaic. It pours a very lively tangerine color, releasing notes of bright citrus, tropical melon, cream and a touch of dank earth. The taste is a juicy piney tropical melon flavor with a touch of berry and layers of hop resins that roll around the tongue, making it extremely drinkable.

This is also the first batch of dHop 1 that features our extremely juicy finish we like to call #EQjuice.

Straight Outta The Laboratory

This Saturday 01/26, from 11:30AM-6PM at the brewery, we are happy to announce the return of Straight Outta The Laboratory (10.2% abv TIPA) at $22 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change.

Our love of science and experimentation has us continually working to dial in our processes while in our playground (aka our laboratory) and we feel it shows in the second coming of SOTL. As you may recall, we started with the Straight Outta Middletown grain bill, supersized the citra portion, applied recent findings to achieve a beer bursting with our signature #EQjuice finish.

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.

Paradise City Pineapple/Lychee/Peach

on January 17, 2019 No comments

This Saturday 1/19 from 11:30AM – 6PM, at the brewery, we are thrilled to offer our second Wild Ale Collab with @otherhalfnyc : Paradise City Pineapple/Lychee/Peach (5.5% ABV) at $18 a bottle, limit 6 bottles a person.

We brewed this beer with Sam back in June by supersizing Equilibrium’s Welcome to the Jungle grain bill and fermentation, adding a new Brett strain, and aging the beer for months on copious amounts of Pineapple, Lychee, and Peaches. We are pleased to pay homage to NY as one of the great adult playgrounds in the North East: Paradise City. This beer is unfiltered, unpasteurized, naturally carbonated and will continue to evolve over time if properly cellared.

Hop Wave 6

This Saturday 01/19 from 11:30am-6 pm, at the brewery, we are pleased to introduce Hop Wave 6 (8.0% ABV DIPA). $20 per 4-pk, 1 case per person.

We took dHop 6 which is is the closest thing we make to DDH MC² and added a touch of lactose. Hop Wave 6 pours very hazy tangerine color with a taste and aroma of dank and bright tropical mango, apricot, earth, pineapple, berry, with a touch of weed. With an extremely high level of “EQ Juice”, this beer is extremely bright and juicy. The juice builds up on finish along with a creamy sorbet ending, reminiscent of a tropical creamsicle.

More to come!

Governing Forces

We are pleased to introduce Governing Forces (8.0% ABV) this Saturday 01/19 from 11:30AM – 6PM, at the brewery. $20 per 4-pk, Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change.

Governing Forces is our follow up to dC/dt and is the most technologically advanced DIPA we’ve made to date by reexamining the basic properties of our new hardware. We’ve made several refinements to our new setup to bring more aroma and EQ juice into this beer. Governing Forces received a healthy dose of citra and amarillo supported by a mixed grain bill.

Governing Forces pours a glowing tangerine and has aromas of tropical orange zest, melon, and a distinct tropical character of EQ juice. The flavor is orange smoothie, melon for days, and dank grass with a gummy resinous character that makes your mouth chew if you man up and take a full sip. This all balanced by a soft bitterness to keep you going sip-after-sip.

This Saturday, 1/12 from 11:30am-6 pm at the brewery, we are pleased to introduce cans of Fractal Citra/Belma (6.8% ABV). $16 per four pack, limit one case per person.

One of our most interesting hop combinations yet, Fractal Citra / Belma pours a resinous hazy yellow releasing intense aromas of citrus, lime and tropical fruit along with strong notes of strawberry. The taste is resinous and a mix of citrus fruits and assorted berries with our signature EQ juice finish. We found this hop combo to be really fun and reminiscent of one of our favorite kiddie cereals growing up.

on January 9, 2019 No comments

This Saturday 1/12 from 11:30am-6 pm, at the brewery, we will be selling cans of Straight Outta Middletown. $22 per four pack, limit one case per person.

Straight out of Middletown (10% ABV) is dHop2s big brother. dHop2 is a DIPA that investigates the interplay between our ale strain and an intensive Mosaic and Citra forward hop bill woven four times into its creative process. It pours a very murky tangerine color, releasing notes of orange juice (with pulp) and earthy grass. The taste is highly resinous, dank-citrus, pine juice, with a chewy mouth feel and a firm and pointed bitterness along with our signature EQ Juice finish.
