This Saturday 09/28, starting at 11:30AM at the brewery, we will be selling cans Fractal Mosaic / Galaxy (6.8 % ABV IPA). $16 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limit subject to change.
Fractal Mosaic / Galaxy investigates the interplay between some of our favorite hops, a first for the series.
Fractal Mosaic / Galaxy pours a resinous-hazy-straw yellow releasing complex aromas of citrus, mango, berry, earthy grass, and nice melon notes. The taste is resinous, dank pineapple orange juice with a hint of pine. The finish is juiced and has a light rounded bitterness.
This Saturday 09/28, starting at 11:30AM, at the brewery, we will be selling cans of Space Rainbow, our next collaboration with Homage Brewing (8.5% ABV DIPA). $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limit subject to change.
Solar Fluctuations cause intense electromagnetic radiation to travel across the Galaxy, which can be scattered to produce a full circle of oscillating colors ranging from red, orange, yellow , blue, indigo, and violet. When there is no horizon to break this up you get a full ring of color vs the traditional semi-circle…. Or… a Space Rainbow
For this follow up beer, we wanted to make something smooth, pillowy, whimsical, and wholesome, all the things that remind us of rainbows. We used plenty of oats and wheat, a whirlpool of Citra and Motueka, and then dry hopped it with Galaxy, Moteuka, and Citra. We added a touch of lactose to make it extra smooth and pillowy.
The beer pours bright yellow with Galaxy giving a full prism of flavor: super soft grapefruit, lime, mango, and pineapple notes with a luscious and cushy mouthfeel and a beautiful EQ juice finish.
This Saturday 09/28, starting at 11:30AM at the brewery, we will be selling cans of Nemesis (10.0 % ABV TIPA). $22 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limit subject to change.
In November of last year, we brewed one of our favorite beers with our friends from Seven Island Brewery : Adrestria, the Goddess of Equilibrium and balance. Legend has it that Adrestria was a handmaiden to a bigger… badder… Goddess of Retribution, Balance, and Equilibrium: Nemesis.
Nemesis, personified in this case into a triple.
We supersized Adrestria into a TIPA and gave it an even more portent berry hop while staying true to the Adrestria foundation. Nemesis uses a grain bill loaded with wheat and oats and is hopped with Citra and Barbe Rouge in the whirlpool and finished with a dry hop of Citra, Barbe Rouge, and Galaxy. It pours a very hazy straw yellow and has an aroma and flavor of luscious island fruit, straw berries, “that melon thing”, and stone fruit. The finish is very creamy with a strong buildup of our signature EQ Juice profile.
This Saturday 09/28, starting at 11:30AM at the brewery, we will be selling bottles of our next collaboration with @horusagedales, Falcons & Felines (7.0 % ABV). $13 per 375ml bottle. Limit 2 bottles per person, limit subject to change.
We released the Vanilla Gorilla back in March of this year. We were left with a single Hill Rock Bourbon Barrel filled with hand-cut Madagascar Vanilla Beans. Around the same time, we were packaging Peregrinas, our peach Farmhouse collab with Horus Aged Ales. You know what goes well together? Peaches, Vanilla, and Bourbon. We refilled the Vanilla Gorilla barrel with Peregrinas and allowed this complex concoction to harmonize for several months before naturally carbonating this beer. The result is a very complex beer that captures summers transition into fall with tart grilled summer peaches, cream soda, funky oak, and transitions into a vanilla bourbon finish perfect for cooler fall weather. We also found that Falcons and Felines has an amazing interplay with food summoning different sensations depending on the other palate companions. The beer has been conditioned for several months, is unfiltered, naturally carbonated and will continue to evolve over time if properly cellared.
This Saturday 09/21, starting at 11:30 am at the brewery, we are happy to introduce a new variant of There and Back Again series, TABA Mango / Lime (6% ABV). $16 per bottle limit set at 6 bottles per person, limits subject to change.
There and Back Again is a tale of a spontaneous fermentation, isolation, confiscation, rejuvenation, mutation, and finally perturbation. This 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 both mango and lime. The result is a bright and clean island mango and zippy lime explosion boosted by the tropical expression of our microorganisms.
Think of an 80’s candy mash up of Nerds, tropical fruit flavored Sweet Tarts, and Pop Rocks. This beer is unfiltered, unpasteurized, naturally carbonated and will continue to evolve over time if properly cellared
This Saturday 09/21, starting at 11:30 am at the brewery, we are happy to introduce the first of three collaborations with @homagebrewing, Solar Fluctuation (8.5% ABV DIPA). $20 per 4-pack, limit set at one case per person, limits subject to change.
When Matt was in town we sampled some of our hops with him and Fluctuation seemed to be one of his favorites. We spoke about amping it up to something we’ve never done before, without deviating too much from the flavors we love.
Solar Fluctuation takes one of our favorite beers, ups the hop game, and gives it our energy treatment process. The results were huge. Solar Fluctuation has very enhanced fruit notes of mango, pineapple, and lychee with an extremely smooth mouthfeel and a super bright and cosmic finish. If you liked the EQ Juice finish on MC³, we think you’ll love what we did to this one.
To keep the space theme going, keep an eye out for one more can made with our friends from Pomona releasing in the next few weeks. We’re doing this release in series because solar fluctuations cause…??
This weekend, we will also have a new iteration of an old bottle series you have been asking for. More news on that tomorrow.
This Saturday 09/14, starting at 11:30am at the brewery, we are happy to bring back Harvester of Simcoe! $20 per 4-pack, limit set at one case per person, limits subject to change.
Harvester of Simcoe (8.8% DIPA) has aromas of passion fruit, bright pine, berry and earth, followed by some bready notes. The taste is light pine and tropical fruits supported by a firm but rounded bitterness. This batch ends with an extra bright EQ juice finish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We will also have freshly canned Fluctuation starting today and available throughout the weekend! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cheers to an OG 3 can release weekend here in Middletown.
This Saturday 09/14, starting at 11:30am at the brewery, we are happy to announce the return of dHop 5! $20 per 4-pack, limit set at one case per person, limits subject to change.
dHop 5 is a 8.5% DIPA that supersizes one of our favorite Equilibrium IPAs: Fractal Citra/Galaxy. We scaled Fractal’s grain bill, water treatment, fermentation, and super sized the hop bill of citra and galaxy. dHop5 pours a milky straw yellow (milk>haze) releasing aromas of passion fruit, peach, lime, and pineapple all integrated with a sorbet twist. The taste is a bright creamy tropical flavor that is dangerously drinkable with our signature EQ Juice finish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ More to come!
This Saturday 09/07/19, starting at 3 pm at the brewery, we are excited to bring you cans of Energy Evolution (10.5 % ABV TIPA). $22 per 4-pk, 1 case pp, limit subject to change.
It seems fitting to symbolize the series of beers we’re calling “Energy Evolution” with a single beer itself. We started by supersizing the grain bill and hop bill from the literal definition of Energy: ENERGY EQUALS MC², and went beyond, double dry hopping it by adding in a ton of galaxy to the existing MC² hop bill and running it through our energy dry hop (see the theme of the 9/7 yet?). To round out this final beer of evolution, we added a touch of lactose for smoothness.
Energy Evolution pours a bright hazy yellow and has big flavors of candied pineapple, citrus fruits, and soft melon notes throughout. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a touch of sorbet and an escalating brightness from our #EQjuice. Another game of charades here, virtually undetectable booziness for a beer this size making it extremely easy to drink, possibly tricking the smartest people out there, but maybe not Einstein, the man we pay homage to this weekend.
This Saturday 09/07/19, starting at 3 pm at the brewery, we are happy to bring you something we have been working on for close to a year, MC³ (cubed) 10% ABV TIPA. $22 per 4-pk, 1 case pp, limit subject to change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The evolution is here and we are excited to bring it to you. MC³ breaks the laws of physics and implodes reality. Our flagship DIPA ‘MC²’ is photon’s hopping rate SQUARED, this TIPA is photon’s hop bill CUBED. Where Photon explodes into a rainbow of flavors, our first ever Double Whirlpool (DW) creates a rainbow of flavor that gets focused back to a singular stream of deliciousness as the next step in this energy evolution. This unique DW works synergistically with the appropriate Energy DH treatment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ MC³ is basically MC² on the maximum permissible dose (MPD) of steroids. Extremely bright citrus, big mango, and assorted melon aroma and flavors. A dense hop saturated mouthfeel from our Double Whirlpool coats the tongue and our EQ juice is amplified by our Energy dry-hop methods to near cosmic boom levels. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This Saturday, we’ll also have Energy Evolution Series glasses for sale as well. Side one features our EE logo, while side two has the variables for the evolution of our energy series: C¹, C², C³. In Physics C or C¹ is the variable used for Photon. This then gets squared in the famous equation Energy Equals MC² and it takes its next leap in MC³. When you add these up in your belly the mathematics are known as a “power series” with enough energy to give you a good hop buzz. These come is metallic gold ($12) or Cosmic Blue ($10).
