Peregrinas

on April 17, 2019 No comments

This Saturday 4/20 starting at 11:30am at the brewery, we will be selling bottles of our collaboration with @horusagedales, Peregrinas. $16 per bottle, limits set at 6 bottles per person, limits subject to change.

Peregrinas (6.5% ABV) is our homage to peregrine falcons, peregrine peaches, and the freedom to wander. Peregrinas is the second beer we made with Kyle during his visit to Middletown last July. This tart farmhouse ale was brewed with 20% spelt and slowly allowed to ferment and sour for over 6 months on peaches. The beer pours a bright yellow and instantly fills the air with a beautiful peach aroma supported by light hay and lemony straw. Peregrinas is light and spritzy with complex prominent peach flesh flavor along with a snappy tart peach skin flavor on finish. We found this beer to be perfect to enjoy with the warmer weather, spring brunches, or time with family and friends. The beer has been conditioned for several months, is unfiltered, naturally carbonated and will continue to evolve over time if properly cellared.

More to come!

PLEASE NOTE: We will be closed on Easter Sunday

Relative Rates

on April 11, 2019 No comments

This Saturday 4/13, starting at 11:30am at the brewery, we are bringing you another new beer, Relative Rates (8.1% DIPA) at $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change.

Relative Rates it’s a continuation of our dC/dt line of beers, which explores how something changes relative to the rate of change of something else with goal to understand and tune the process that give rise to our EQ juice.

Relative Rates uses a blend of modern hops and pours a hazy bright yellow. We get whiffs of tropical fruit, citrus, sweet tangerine and weed on nose. It’s flavor is tropical fruit, big citrus, plenty of melon with and undercurrent of faint strawberry. The finish is resinous but starts off soft before the juicy undertones take the lead. Think warm breeze, bright sun and beach drinks made of OJ, Melon and Berry with our signature #EQJuice profile.

Science and experimentation continue here at the brewery and we are happy to bring you something new.

It pours a hazy and very bright tangerine with aromas of freshly squeezed citrus, lime and grapefruit and a tropical fruit character and an overall aroma that mimics island tiki drinks. The flavor is absolutely tremendous with notes of bright tropical orange juice, mango smoothie, and dank grass. The finish is constantly evolving in your mouth as it goes from an escalating brightness beaming with our signature #EQjuicemorphing into a soft and creamy tropical fruit flavored popsicle with a touch of sweetness. This may be the smoothest TIPA to come out of our lab yet!

Vanilla Gorilla

on March 20, 2019 No comments

This Saturday 03/23, starting at 11:30AM at the brewery, we are proud to offer the next beer from our barrel aged program, Vanilla Gorilla (12% ABV) at $22 per bottle.

Due to limited yield out of this single barrel, the limit is set at 1 bottle per person. We don’t expect this beer to make it into Sunday. Also, please note that we will not be holding any back for the following Thursday.

The Vanilla Gorilla, a white hybrid leopard cat with stunning blue eyes, oversaw the birth of Equilibrium’s beer program in Pete’s basement. He is the neutralizer of all things excessively elevated, and Pete’s best friend. To pay tribute to this pillar of Equilibrium, we aged Special Relativity 1 for more than eight months in @hillrockestatedistillery Bourbon Barrels that were filled with hand-cut Madagascar Vanilla Beans. The Vanilla Gorilla opens up with huge notes of vanilla, marshmallow, oak, burnt sugar, dark chocolate, coffee, and bourbon. Its flavor follows the aroma with a full viscous body and a smooth vanilla-chocolate-bourbon palate linger that warms the soul like a loved-one’s hug.

This beer should be served near room temperature to enjoy the bouquet of complexity that went into its creation. This beer will cellar well at proper temperatures. The label art for Vanilla Gorilla was created by local illustrator, Julia Green (@juliagreenartistwhosings).

The taproom will be open at 7am for tickets, if you arrive before that, we kindly ask you hold your own place in line.

Intermediate Dance Moves

on March 14, 2019 No comments

This Saturday 3/16 starting at 11:30am at the brewery, we will be selling our collaboration with Narrow Gauge Brewing Company , Intermediate Dance Moves. $20 per 4-pk, 1 case per person subject to change.

Intermediate Dance Moves (8.0% DIPA) came about after dancing one too many nights with Jeff at various festivals and beer events. To pay homage to our developing montage of floor fire, we chose to highlight mosaic, which is one of Jeff’s favorite hops with some support from citra and belma.

Intermediate Dance Moves pours a pale opaque yellow and has an aroma of tropical citrus and dank earth. The flavor is reminiscent of tropical stone fruit, citrus and berries with a very faint pine earthiness. Layered hop resins coat the tongue and our signature #EQjuice does its thing on finish.
