This Saturday 02/22, starting at 11:30am, at 2 South Street we are excited to bring you Barrel Aged Swiss Bliss (12% Imperial Stout), a collaboration with Short Throw Brewing Co. . $22 per 500ml bottle , Limit 3PP. As with all BA releases, we will not be holding any back for Monday sales. When Brandon came to visit almost a year ago we added an Imperial Stout to select Buffalo Trace barrels. While he was here, he told us about one of his favorite coffees from home in Richmond, VA; a Swiss Chocolate Almond roast that he loves drinking and the idea for Swiss Bliss came to light. 11 months later we chose, and for the first time at EQ, blended three barrels before treating the beer with Rostov’s Coffee Swiss Chocolate Almond Coffee, Almonds, and Marshmallow. The result is a beautifully decadent brownie stout laced with a rich nutty flavor from the almonds and a slightly sweet magical marshmallow finish with just enough coffee to cut through any sweetness. The barrel characteristic offers a beautiful caramel finish and this beer drinks like a bowl of rocky road ice cream. 🔥🐕
This Saturday 02/22, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we bring you Wavelength (6.5 % ABV IPA). $16 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. A wavelength is the distance between identical points in the adjacent cycles of a waveform signal propagated in space and describes the flow of Photons We started with oats and white wheat for a base before adding Simcoe and Mosaic to the whirlpool. To get some berry medley notes going we dry hopped with Mosaic and Citra at a 2:1 ratio. Wavelength pours bright yellow with aromas of citrus and stone fruit with crushable flavors of mango and berry with a light refreshing finish.
This Saturday 02/22, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we are happy to introduce a new beer in the Super Fractal Series, Super Fractal Koru Set (10.0 % ABV TIPA). $22 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. The Koru is a New Zealand Māori term for a spiral shape that constantly evolves to symbolize new life and growth and resembles a fractal set. After thoroughly enjoying Super Fractal Phoenix Set, we wanted to grow Super Fractal as a series using hops exclusively from New Zealand and the Super Fractal Koru Set was born. Scaled up 3x from Fractal, we used a super simple grain bill of 2row and our specific fractal fermentation profile before intensely hoping it with Nelson, Motueka, Waimea, Rakau, and Wakatu.
Super Fractal Koru Set pours a vivid hazy yellow with an aroma of tropical citrus and lime. The flavor is bright candied orange peel, black currant, and white grapes with a light lime finish. This is a crazy one with some intense fruit tones. This beer is extremely aromatic and crushable with a big #EQjuice profile that might just leave you seeing beautiful and spirals shapes yet again.
This Saturday 02/15, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street we will be selling Energy Wave (8.0% DIPA). $20 per 4-pk, 1 case per person, limits subject to change.
We revisited the Wave treatment with one of our favorite beers by paying tribute to the other side of the MC² relationship with energy. Energy Wave takes the MC² grain bill, increases the hops, and adds a touch of lactose. Energy Wave pours a glowing hazy tangerine color, releasing bright tropical notes of mango, pineapple, lactose, and apricot. Energy Wave tastes like a succulent wave of creamy mango juice with a touch of sweet that is dangerously drinkable and balanced.
This Saturday 02/15, starting at 11:30am, at 2 South Street we are excited to offer Batch 2 of Barrel Aged Special Relativity 1 at $20 per bottle. Due to the very limited yield out of this single barrel, limit is set at 1 bottle per person. We don’t expect these bottles to make it into Sunday and we will not be holding any back for Monday.
Special Relativity is a special case of General Relativity, which focuses more on time (and space) as opposed to gravity. For Batch 2 we chose a barrel from Buffalo Trace Distillery, where BASR1 sat for 11 months to add notes of charred oak, light vanilla and mild caramel to create a harmonious and synergistic balance. This beer opens up with strong notes of oak, bourbon, char, and bittersweet chocolate, with a slight touch of coffee. 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. This beer will cellar well at proper temperatures (55 – 65 F). More to come!
This Saturday 02/08, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street we’ll be selling C, (4.5 % Pale Ale). $15 per 4-pk, 1 case per person, limits 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, mandarin orange, 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.
This Saturday 02/08, starting at 11:30AM at 2 South Street, we are proud to release bottles of Shared Space Guava and Passionfruit (6.0% Wild Ale) for sale. $18 per 750ml bottle/ $10 per 375ml bottle (limit 6 pp on each). Limit subject to change. With Equilibrium Brewery focusing on the liquid, and @eqbonfire focusing on the food, our Shared Space will be a junction of good beer, good eats and most importantly, good people. A sense of community and belonging is something we pride ourselves on here and we are happy to introduce our second iteration of the series to commemorate that. Shared Space Guava and Passionfruit is a blended wild ale brewed and copious amounts of Guava and Passionfruit. We started off brewing two separate bases that could be thought of as cousins of Austin and TABA before conditioning it on more than 3.5 lbs of fruit per gallon and adding additional strains of Brettanomyces. It pours a beautiful golden yellow and has an intoxicating aroma. Shared space GPF is incredibly complex with a tart tropical flavor supported by a gentle tartness and very balanced acidity. This beer is tasty right out of the gate, but will continue to evolve in proper cellar conditions.
This Saturday 02/08, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street we’ll be selling Governing Forces, (8.0 % ABV DIPA). $20 per 4-pk, 1 case per person, limits subject to change.
Governing Forces started the re-examining process of the basic properties of our latest hardware. We’ve continued 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. More to come!
