Austin Cranberry Lime

on June 13, 2019 No comments

This Saturday 06/15, starting at 11:30am at the brewery, we will be selling bottles of Austin Cranberry / Lime. $16 per bottle. Limit set at 6 bottles per person, limits subject to change.

Austin (6.0%ABV) is a farmhouse ale built by the inspiration to share beer with people close to heart. It is pale, tart, delicate, and complex with a bit of pleasant funk. Austin was then refermented on cranberry and lime at a rate of more than 2 lbs of fruit per gallon for additional months. It’s jammy and tart but shows a very restrained acidity while the fruit character is boosted by the expression of our microorganisms. This summer crusher is one of the most balanced variants of Austin yet. This beer is unfiltered, unpasteurized, naturally carbonated and will continue to evolve over time if properly cellared.

Cirrus

This Saturday 06/15, starting at 11:30am at the brewery, we are happy to bring you a new beer, Cirrus (8.5 % ABV DIPA) at $20 per 4-pk, limit 1 case per person. Limit subject to change.

Cirrus ☁️ utilizes our largest addition of oats yet in an effort to make a super pillowy, fun, and fluffy beer. For hops, we used a mix of Idaho 7, Enigma, Citra, and Galaxy. The aroma is sweet Valencia oranges, stone fruit, and pineapple with a flavor of tropical citrus, mango, and papaya, with a light pine earthiness. There is a big #EQjuice finish coupled with an outrageously soft and pillowy mouthfeel. Through science and technique this beer is one of the best rollercoaster rides we’ve taken you on and will truly manipulate your tastebuds.

Breakfast Time Is Relative

This Saturday 06/08, starting at 11:30am at the brewery, we are happy to bring you Barrel Aged Breakfast Time Is Relative (12.0 % ABV Imperial Stout) at $22 per bottle, limit 3 bottles per person. Limit subject to change.

The ideal time for Breakfast is whenever you want it! Breakfast Time is Relative is barrel aged Special Relativity 2 conditioned with coffee, maple syrup, and lactose. Embracing special relativity’s theme of time, we chose a nice rest in Hill Rock Double Cask Rye barrels from our friends Hillrock Estate Distillery. Hill Rock Distillery produces hand-crafted spirits made with their own grain, floor malted, craft distilled in copper pot still, and aged in fine oak. Special Relativity 2 was allowed to equilibrate for over 8 months in the barrel with charred oak, and smoke flavors to achieve a harmonious and synergistic balance. This beer was than further conditioned on Mostra CoffeeGhost Bear Espresso Blend, Catskill Mountain Sugarhouse maple syrup, and lactose. This beer opens up with strong notes of coffee, Dark Chocolate, Stone Fruit, Caramelized Sugar balanced by maple syrup, oak, bourbon, char, and Its flavor follows the aroma with a full viscous body and a smooth chocolate-bourbon palate linger that lets you enjoy the transition time between sips as it warms your soul. This beer should be served near room temperature (~68 F) to enjoy the bouquet of complexity that went into its creation.

NOTE: we recommend NOT cellaring this beer to beer to enjoy its fresh coffee character. We are also pleased to have the artwork from our friend and local illustrator Julia Green.

Dream Wave Distortion

This Saturday 06/08, starting at 11:30am at the brewery, we are bringing you a collaboration withOther Half Brewing, Dream Wave Distortion (10.0 % ABV TIPA) at $22 per 4-pk, limit 1 case per person. Limit subject to change.
We took Dream Wave Fluctuation, our collab with our friends from Brooklyn and blurred the lines to explore what it would would be like with a life as a TIPA. This aggressively hopped galaxy and citra forward triple uses oats and lactose to match Other Half’s Dream treatment and creates a scaled up and dangerously drinkable version of its predecessor. 

Dream Wave Distortion pours a hazy tangerine color. It has big aromas of passion fruit, melon, peach, cream, and pineapple with a matching flavor profile. Utilizing some of our latest techniques, this triple is lethally smooth with a bright, luscious, and creamy sorbet #EQjuicefinish.

More to come..
