dHop22

on June 9, 2020 No comments

Today at Noon we will be selling dHop 22 (8.5 % DIPA) at $20 per 4-pk (No Limit). We will have this available with options for curbside pickup at the brewery or delivery throughout New York, Washington D.C., Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, Vermont, North Dakota, and Virginia!
22 is special to us, it’s the street number of Equilibrium’s first location: 22 Henry Street. A place with fond memories and many good times. It cultivated many relationships and was where we built up our community and culture with you. For the 22nd iteration of the dHop series we had to pay homage to where it all started with a Henry Street touch on the label. dHop 22 aka “dHop Henry Street” features a 100% Citra whirlpool and a 100% Nelson dry hop using Freestyle New Zealand hops. It pours a bright murky yellow and has aromas of citrus, New Zealand gooseberries, melon, and South Pacific open fields. The flavor is rich and juicy with notes of succulent tropical fruit, gooseberry, and grass with a thick body and a juicy buildup that transforms into slight dank finish with a pleasant bitterness. dHop 22 Henry Street is a special beer not only because of the number but because it has been ranked as a top 5 in the series by many here.

Integration and Adjunct Integration

on June 5, 2020 No comments

Today we will be selling Integration and Adjunct Integration (Both 8.5 % DIPA) at $20 for Integration and $22 per 4-pk for Adjunct Integration (No Limit). We will have this available with options for curbside pickup at the brewery or delivery throughout New York, Washington D.C., Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, Vermont, North Dakota, and Virginia!
Integration and Adjunct Integration are the first beers to come from our EQ Create poll we held. These two beers represent an integration of you the community to our brewing formulation and a mathematical integration of all the community generated data that you provided. These are the first results of what we are calling our Community Juice Series. We took the top votes in categories for style, process, base, fermentation, and water profile and hit it with EVERY hop listed weighted by its voting frequency to make Integration. We then took half of the yield and added EVERY adjunct option listed in the poll weighted by its voting frequency to make Adjunct Integration.
Integration and Adjunct Integration start off with a base of wheats and oats and a fractal fermentation. We added Citra, Sabro, and Simcoe to the whirlpool and a dry hop of Citra, Galaxy, Riwaka, Nelson, Sabro, and Simcoe. So many hops! Half of that beer was then conditioned on Vanilla, Marshmallow, Lactose, Orange and Lime Zest to become Adjunct Integration.
Integration has aromas of bright citrus zest, orange slices, pine, stone fruit, and melon with flavors of fresh citrus pulp, pineapple, passionfruit, underlying coconut, and touch of berry finish. As requested, the #EQjuice is prominent throughout followed by a pointed bitterness.
Adjunct Integration has an aroma of orange vanilla birthday cake and flavors of a thick tropical fruit shake. Notes of creamy citrus, mango, and peach with a zesty but fluffy marshmallow finish. These beers are made to be fun and we recommend enjoying them side by side so you can conduct your own research right from home. The next beers to come from the series will be directly from your recipes submitted.

Riwakaroo

on June 3, 2020 No comments

Today at Noon we will be selling Riwakaroo (10.0% TIPA) at $22 per 4-pk (No Limit). We will have this available with options for curbside pickup at the brewery or delivery throughout New York, Washington D.C., Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, Vermont, North Dakota, and Virginia!
Can you say it? “Riwakaroo” (Ree-wah-kuh-ah-ru) is the next beer in the series that points back to Pete’s recent travel to the Southern Hemisphere. A mother and a smirking joey grace the label on a beer we are very excited to bring you. Riwakaroo is the TIPA version of Roowaka and pours a milky and super hazy yellow. The aroma is explosive with a straight OJ and mango nose. The first sip is pulpy with big notes of grandma’s fresh squeezed OJ, passionfruit, grasslands, grapes, and berries. The melding of balanced sweet fruit comes together in a thick and creamy finish and our big #EQjuice profile with just a touch of bitterness. This beer is a downright crusher and the masked ABV may have you chilling in a pouch in no time if you’re not careful.

Fractal Mosaic

on June 2, 2020 No comments

We are now selling Fractal Mosaic at $16 per four pack, no limit. We will have this available with options for curbside pickup at the brewery or delivery throughout New York, Washington D.C., Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, Vermont, North Dakota, and Virginia.
Fractal Mosaic (6.8% IPA) was the first beer we ever brewed and was the first release from our small-batch Fractal research series. A fractal is something simple at the core yet can produce wonderful and amazingly complex results. We use the fractal series to investigate how different hops manifest through our processes, allowing us to optimize both our use of hops and our hopping techniques.
Fractal Mosaic pours a resinous-hazy-straw yellow releasing complex aromas of dank blueberry, citrus, earthy grass, and tropical melon. The taste is a highly resinous blueberry cannabis, melon and pine with a juicy with a slightly creamy mouthfeel, and a firm but rounded bitterness. The medley of characteristics makes the name “Fractal Mosaic” warranted indeed.

South Street Imperium & South Street Experimentum

on June 2, 2020 No comments

Today at noon we will be selling South Street Imperium and South Street Experimentum (Both 8.0%ABV). $20 per 4-pk, no limit. We will have these available with options for curbside pickup at the brewery or delivery throughout New York, Washington D.C., Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, Vermont, North Dakota, and Virginia.
Juice experiments are well underway here to explore some of the new toys we have at our new South Street facility.
We had two leading theories on how to best use one of our new toys, both rooted in solid science, preliminary results both looked good… but different. So we thought… lets try both! We brought back the South Street version of the familiar companion set Experimentum and Imperium (Latin for Experiment and Control). Both feature our DIPA sized 2-Row Fractal fermentation, fractal grain bill, and a hop bill of Citra, Mosaic, and Sabra. These beers are parallel in recipe but not process. The difference focuses on two distinct uses of an exclusive piece South Street equipment and Experimentum utilizes our coveted Energy treatment process #twovariables.
Both beers have a candy-like-tiki-cocktail aroma. South Street Imperium has notes and flavors of assorted citrus, peach, and crushed Pez candy with dank and slightly resinous finish and punchy rollercoaster of #EQJuice. South Street Experimentum offers flavors of bright tropical fruit, deep navel orange characteristics with mango and papaya in a distinctly succulently soft body while and crossing the finish line with our EQJuice. With the same ingredients but two different processes, a showdown is underway. Which one do you prefer?

Enso

Today we will be selling Enso (8.2 % DIPA) at $20 per 4-pk (No Limit). We will have this available with options for curbside pickup at the brewery or delivery throughout New York, Washington D.C., Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, and Vermont!
This is a very important beer to us. The Enso circle is our Brewery’s logo and is a symbol of balance, creation, and life. The impossible task of hand drawing a perfect circle creates the imperfections and details that exactly make the Enso beautiful. The beauty of imperfection is what drives us to develop, grow, innovate, and improve in a quest for balance and perfection. We could think of no better symbol to represent our work as a craft brewery as we share our journey and our path while we strive for balance and amazing beer. We’re thrilled that you take this journey with us.
We took aspects of our favorite past brews and integrated them to express a single manifestation of Equilibrium. Enso takes the grain bill and fermentation of dHop5, uses a hybrid Citra/Galaxy hopbill of dHop5 and Dreamwave Fluctuation, a touch of lactose like Dreamwave Fluctuation, and applies our energy treatment.
Enso pours a beautiful milky bright yellow with aromas of passion fruit, assorted citrus, pineapple, and sorbet. The flavor has bright notes of passion fruit, melon, and peach all coming together in a creamy lime push pop ending. This beer is soft and drinkable and ends with our signature #EQjuice finish in perfectly balanced form.

dHop1

on May 22, 2020 No comments

Today at Noon (For 1PM or later pickup) we will be selling dHop1 (8.5 % IPA) at $20 per 4-pk (No Limit). We will have this available with options for curbside pickup at the brewery or delivery throughout New York, Washington D.C., Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, and Vermont!
Our first dHop ever is back! dHop is our DIPA series that investigates how changing different aspects of hops changes our DIPAs, which will allow us to optimize our hops and hopping procedure. dHop1 is our 8.5% DIPA with an intense mosaic forward hop bill. Applying what we’ve learned from this series, we were able to pull a very bright and tropical dank mosaic. It pours a very lively tangerine color, releasing notes of cannibis, bright citrus, tropical melon, and just a touch of dank earth with notes of blueberry on the finish. The taste is a juicy piney tropical melon, with dank layers of blueberry resins that roll around the tongue making it extremely drinkable.

Fractal Riwaka/Citra

on May 22, 2020 No comments

At 12PM today we will be selling Fractal Riwaka/Citra (6.8 % IPA) at $16 per 4-pk (No Limit). We will have this available with options for curbside pickup at the brewery or delivery throughout New York, Washington D.C., Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, and Vermont!
Fractal Riwaka/Citra investigates the interplay between one of our new favorite New Zealand hops and a tried and true classic. Fractal Riwaka/Citra pours a resinous-hazy-straw yellow releasing aromas of lemongrass, passionfruit, melon, and fresh cut kiwi grass. The taste is super soft with notes of citrus zest, passionfruit, and pineapple. We also get a light earthy berry with a peppery grass like finish. This beer is delicate and pillowy with a mild rounded bitterness. This is one of the most interesting Fractals yet, and perhaps our go-to!

Roowaka

on May 21, 2020 No comments

At 12PM today we will be selling Roowaka (8.0 % DIPA) at $20 per 4-pk (No Limit). We will have this available with options for curbside pickup at the brewery or delivery throughout New York, Washington D.C., Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, and Vermont!
Roowaka is the next beer based off of Pete’s hoppy travels to Australia. Another Kangaroo picture (Yup, we have plenty) graces the label. Roowaka celebrates our love of the South Pacific and shines light on the elusive New Zealand Riwaka and one of our Aussie favorites, Galaxy.
We started with a Fractal fermentation and grain bill. The hop schedule uses a Citra whirlpool before a heavy dry hop of Riwaka and Galaxy. Roowaka pours a straw milky yellow with an aroma of passionfruit, assorted citrus, earthy hay, grassland, and pinch of white pepper. The rollercoaster ride of flavor starts off with notes of earthy white pepper before being quickly transformed into pops of citrus, passionfruit, white grape with, melon, and a touch of berries. The juicy buildup continues before ending with a soft and creamy finish with a touch of bitterness.
