At our noon opening and on our website for pre-order and delivery we’ll be selling Strawberry Zeppelin, a collaborative effort with our friends from Crosby Hop Farm and Hops Direct LLC at Puterbaugh Farms (6.5% IPA) $16 per 4-pk. No Limit! Despite not having actual Strawberries, Strawberry Zeppelin is an IPA brewed to highlight Belma hops grown at a Puterbaugh Farms in Mabtin and processed by Crosby Hops. We paired the Belma with Cashmere to help boost the flavor profile. Strawberry Zeppelin pours bright yellow with flavors of mixed berry, underripe strawberry and raspberry. It has a pleasant berry earthiness and a bit dankness. This beer is extremely crushable and is a fun way to exhibit berry notes without actually using them. Thanks to Puterbaugh and Crosby for working with us on this one!
At our noon opening, we will be selling Super Fractal Mandelbrot Set (10.5% TIPA) $22 per 4-pk via our website for pre-order pickup and delivery. Please see previous posts for delivery guidelines. No Limit! The Mandelbrot Set is named after Mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot. It’s a set of complex numbers for which the function does not diverge and are bounded in absolute value. Following the previous Fractal Sets and continuing the series framework, we scaled up from Fractal using a super simple grain bill of 2row and our specific fractal fermentation profile before intensely hoping it with a Citra whirlpool and a dryhop of Sabro, Strata Galaxy, and Amarillo. Super Fractal Mandelbrot Set pours a vivid hazy yellow with an aroma of tropical citrus and grapefruit. The flavor comes alive with decadent tangerine, stone fruit, and berry, with a touch of coconut and a zesty lime finish. Dramatic fruit notes take the lead as a crushable and #EQjuice profile builds up into a smooth and creamy finish that will leave you seeing the biggest fractal reflections yet.
Today we will be selling cans of Radium (8% DIPA) $20 per 4-pk. No Limit. Pre-order for curbside delivery and delivery (starting 4/6) can be made on our website. We also have a safe table set up outside for walk-ups. Back on March 8th, Kristen, Jess, and Michelle helped out on make a DIPA to honor International Women’s Day. A large number of Equilibrium employees are Woman and have helped grow us to what we are today. Radium is our oude to the woman who make the beer industry go round. We point to Marie Curie, the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first person — man or woman — to win a nobel prize twice. With her husband, Marie’s efforts led to the discovery of Radium, which led to the discovery and development of X-rays. With Ryan and Johns help, Kristen, Jess, and Michelle used a white wheat malt base and a blend of blend of azacca, loral, el dorado, and Idaho gem. Radium pours a bright yellow with a flavor profile of papaya, orange slices, and melon with a light dankness and a #EQjuice finish.
At Noon today we will sell cans of MoksaMarga (8.0% DIPA) a collaboration with our friends from Moksa Brewing Company at $20 per 4-pk. **We are temporarily removing limits**. Order ahead for curbside pickup (We open at 12PM) or schedule delivery. Delivery orders must be in by 6pm the night before your zone (check out stories for zone graphic) Moksa is a term for various forms of emancipation, enlightenment, and liberation while Marga is The Path to achieve enlightenment. Together they create radiant awareness that underlies all experience. These concepts meld with our logo, which is a hand-drawn circle created from one uninhibited brushstroke to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create; a circle of enlightenment. Through science we strive to do something similar to hops by liberating hop compounds from the hop flower in a circle of reinvention to form delicious liquid. We started with a heavy dose wheat and oats before heavily hopping this beer with Citra and Rakau. MoksaMarga pours a vibrant yellow with aroma and notes of tropical fruit, candied pineapple, mango, and tangerine. It continues to morph into a juicy buildup with our #EQjuice profile and soft smooth finish that will slip you into a meditative state.
At Noon today we will be selling cans of Sweep The Leg (10% TIPA) a collaboration with our friends at Civil Society Brewing at $22 per 4-pk. Limit one case per person. Curbside pickup starts today at noon but delivery will start on Friday in NYC for this beer. Delivery Quota has already been met for today and tomorrow. When Karl and Evan were up to Collab there was a lot of fun about one of our favorite 80’s movies because of Pete’s Cobra Kai inspired jean jacket vest (see Collab pic from a few weeks ago. Shout out to @mattyeaats!). Not knowing then that this beer would be released in a time of crisis to friends, peers, and industry; it sends an important message of resilience and not giving up. As taught by Mr. Miyagi: Much of life’s adversity is out of your control and can seem unfair, but that’s no excuse to accept defeat. These situations can be a key component of growth. Covid-19 may be sweeping our legs now, but let’s show them our Crane Kick. We hope you’re hanging in there and staying safe. Flaked oats and wheat make up the base before a Citra and Simcoe whirlpool. We dry hopped it with Citra, Galaxy, Sabro, Motueka and Simcoe. Sweep The Leg pours a bright tangerine with notes of a big tropical fruit salad. The taste is ripe tropical island fruit, flaked coconut, and assorted citrus in a creamy #EQjuice forward finish. This beer will sweep your leg if you’re not careful with it
per 4pk! dHop20 is the newest iteration in our experimental series. We started out with a white wheat and oat base and a blend of Mosaic, Motueka, and Amarillo hops. dHop20 pours a hazy yellow and has an aroma and notes of candied orange, lime, and peaches with a juicy backbone. The body is soft and pillowy with a build up to our beautiful #EQjuice finish.
Starting today at our 12pm opening, we are proud to release bottles of Shared Space (6.0% Wild Ale) for sale. $13 per 750ml bottle/ $8 per 375ml. With Equilibrium Brewery focusing on the liquid, and Equilibrium Bonfire 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 is a blended wild ale with beautiful complexity. We started off brewing two separate bases that could be thought of as cousins of Austin and TABA and then added additional strains of Brettanomyces. It pours a beautiful golden yellow and has an intoxicating aroma. Conditioning since November, Shared Space has notes of anjou pear, honeysuckle and bright citrus zest with a soft body, mild tartness and balanced acidity. This beer is tasty right out of the gate, but will continue to evolve in proper cellar conditions.
This Saturday 03/14, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we’ll have cans of Fractal Sabro/Mosaic (6.8% ABV IPA) for sale. $16 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. The Fractal series investigates the interplay between some of our favorite hops, this iteration explores Sabro and Mosaic. Fractal SM pours a resinous-hazy-straw yellow releasing complex aromas of tangerine, melon, coconut, mango, and a touch of berry. The finish is juicy and has a light rounded bitterness.
This Saturday 03/14, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we’ll have Mass x Acceleration (8.0% ABV DIPA). $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. Mass x Acceleration, or Force, is part of the series that coincides with Governing Forces and dC/dt which all examine the basic properties of new hop techniques. Mass x Acceleration blends massive doses of two of our favorite hops: Mosaic and Amarillo. This juicy elixir pours a glowing tangerine color with aromas of dank orange juice with that melony EQ juice thing. The taste is orange/mango for days and melon flavored gummy bear juice.
This Saturday 03/14, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we are pleased to brining you the second beer of this series, Barrel Aged Austin Gin (6.5 % ABV Farmhouse Ale). $20per 750ml // Limit 1pp and $11 per 375ml // Limit 2pp. Limits subject to change. Austin starts off as a delicate, and complex farmhouse ale with a bit of pleasant funk and gentle acidity. We took one of our most balanced farmhouse ales yet, and let it rest in Gin barrels that previously held Unlikely Foragers for a little over 10 months. It’s since rested over a year combined in both barrels and bottles. The metamorphosis is beautiful producing a delicate and layered flavor of mild spring citrus, light spice, juniper and assorted botanicals with a mild oak presence. This ale is gentle, soft, and dry with a beautiful creamy aspect to its body and a tongue clique tart finish and is a continuation of where our barrel aged program is headed. This is a beautiful beer for pairing with food or enjoying on its own. BAAG will continue to evolve over time if properly cellared.
