C

on October 17, 2019 No comments

This Saturday 10/19, starting at 11:30 AM, at the brewery, we will be selling cans of C (4.8% Pale Ale) $15 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limit subject to change.

E=MC², and C is the universal symbol for the speed of light. We based this beer off of our beloved Photon pale ale but amped up the hop ratios and gave this beer our Energy treatment. This method improves aroma, enhances flavor and body by pulling the most out of from each hop.

C pours a bright straw yellow and has a beautiful nose that wafts up as soon as the can is cracked open. Balanced and luscious, it has deep flavors of stone fruit, pineapple, and mango thanks to the increased hopping rates. You’ll notice a super soft crushable mouthfeel and a finish that builds up and exits at the speed of light.

Big Gnome Energy

This Saturday 10/19, starting at 11:30 AM, at the brewery, we will sell cans of Big Gnome Energy, our collaboration with Dancing Gnome Beer (8.0% ABV DIPA). $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limit subject to change.

BGE is everywhere these days. That low-key cool that can’t be simulated, replicated, or duplicated. You keep that confidence Biggie while gnoming that ego Smalls. Do you have BGE in you? Andrew came to visit and we BGE’d a base of oats and white wheat with a giant dose of citra in the whirlpool. We then dry hopped it with citra, enigma, and strata (our first hop from our 2019 crop). This years strata is dank! Big Gnome Energy pours a vibrant hazy yellow and is dank, juicy, and soft with notes of gooseberry, tropical fruits and cannabis. It finishes with a welcomed bitterness for balance and luscious EQ juice finish.

This Saturday 10/12, starting at 11:30AM, at the brewery, we will be selling cans of Moon of Vega, our collaboration with J. Wakefield Brewing (8.7% ABV DIPA). $22 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limit subject to change.

Vador… Drink… You’ve been defeated by a Space Ball. Learn the power of Madagascar Vanilla and Milk Sugar from Yogurt to use the Schwartz and combat Dark forces on the Moon of Vega. This beer is ‘Ludicrous Speeds’ (released 07/18) Father. It uses the same hop bill of Citra, Galaxy, and Mosaic but at a whopping 8 lb/bbl. Moon of Vega is thick fruit punch creamsicle saturated with tropical fruit and citrus with EQ juice leading the way into dunkaroo frosting parfait finish. We think you’ll enjoy this one. May the Schwartz be with you!!

… There is an even larger
space ball in progress..

Eastern States Ale

This Saturday 10/12, starting at 11:30AM, at the brewery, we will be selling our collaboration made for Orange County Fair Speedway, Eastern States Ale (4.5% ABV Pale Ale). $14 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limit subject to change.
A historic local attraction close to Equilibrium, Orange County Fair Speedway is a five-eighths mile dirt oval speedway here in Middletown, NY. Originally built in 1857 as a track for horse racing, it was converted to an auto racing track in 1919 and has been operating as such since. Since 1948, It operates on a weekly basis from April to September. This year, Orange County Fair Speedway will celebrate its 100th year of Auto Racing. Its Centennial season concludes with the 58th running of our Eastern States 200 stock car races on October 25th, 26th & 27th. We couldn’t think of a better way to help celebrate than making a beer for a local attraction, from our local brewery.
Eastern States Ale is a traditional pale ale made specifically for easy drinking. With white wheat as part of the base, we added Columbus and Simcoe in the whirlpool and then dry hopped it with Citra and additional Simcoe. It has a light and smooth body, a touch of citrus flavor along with dank pine notes and a crisp refreshing finish. Perfect for weekends at the racetrack.
On Friday October 25th, at 4pm, Orange County Fair Speedway will be holding a kick off party for Eastern States Weekend and we’ll be there to help celebrate by pouring Eastern States Ale at the event.
Hope to see you there!

Einstein’s Favorite

on October 2, 2019 No comments

This Saturday 10/05, starting at 11:30AM at the brewery, we will be selling cans of Einstein’s Favorite (10.5% ABV TIPA). $24 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limit subject to change.

When we hosted Energy Evolution Day a few weeks back, we had a fun idea to treat a keg and mimic what was said to be Albert Einstein’s favorite dessert, Sticky Orange Cake. It was an attendee and staff favorite so we decided to make a bigger batch to be able to bring it to you in canned form. We took our lactose forward Energy Evolution as a base, tweaked it with some of our favorite hops and added a massive dose of Florida navel orange zest and Madagascar Vanilla beans. This dessert themed beer has bright notes and flavors of tropical orange and assorted citrus, sweet frosted vanilla, and a smooth creamy EQ juice finish. It dangerously smooth and comes together as a gooey orange sweet cake Grandma would have made for you growing up.

More to come..
