Eastern States Ale

on October 10, 2019 No comments
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..

Fractal Mosaic/Galaxy

on September 26, 2019 No comments

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.

One more NEW can to come..

Space Rainbow

on September 26, 2019 No comments

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.

More to come!

Nemesis

on September 26, 2019 No comments

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.

Falcons & Felines

on September 25, 2019 No comments

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.

TABA Mango Lime!

on September 19, 2019 No comments

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

Solar Fluctuation

on September 18, 2019 No comments

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.

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.

dHop5!

on September 11, 2019 No comments

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.
