This Saturday 03/14, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we’ll be bringing you back the TIPA that started it all, Even More Unbalanced, a collab with Evil Twin Brewing NYC (10.0% ABV). $22 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. At the time, this was the hoppiest beer ever brewed at Equilibrium. It opened the door to our Triple game, something we have been fine tuning and trying to perfect since then. It all started when we discussed with Jeppe how we consider Fluctuation to be perfectly unbalanced and he pushed us to scale our recipe up and we are thankful he did. With Citra, Mosaic, Galaxy, Motueka, Sabro, and Amarillo in excess, EMU pours an intensely hazy glowing tangerine color releasing a penetrating hop blast of bright tropical mango sorbet, pineapple, mango, and apricot with a lime peel garnish. The taste is blended tropical fruit with our bright #EQjuice. It’s fluffy but with a proper bitterness for balance. Please drink this fruit blast responsibly, it’s a touch dangerous and can sneak up on you quickly. More to Come..
This Saturday 03/07, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we’ll be bringing you our newest TIPA, Come at me, Bro; a collab with Haas Hops (10.0% ABV). $22 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. Us and kangaroos… This nonsensical idea came about joking around with our dear friend Amaey and imagining the toughest kangaroo on the planet’s inner monologue (?if kangaroos have inner monologues; we’re sure this one does) while discussing our up coming trip to Australia. This naturally blossomed into a collab with Haas and Come at me, Bro went from inner monologues to a TIPA made exclusively with Haas hops. We started with a base of pale malt, flaked oats and white wheat before a whirlpool of citra and idaho7 and a big old galaxy and citra dryhop. Come at me, Bro pours an opaque hazy yellow and has big notes of papaya, peach, mango, and cantaloupe with a touch of grass in a super fluffy pillows-resting-on-pillows form. This beer is smooth and creamy with a giant fruit cocktail #EQjuice finish.
This Saturday 03/07, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we are bringing back The Middletown Project (8.0% ABV DIPA). $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. The Middletown Project is our on going effort to create our perfect hop bomb. We blended 4 of our favorite hops into this new process. We taste dank berries, bright orangey citrus, cream, and melon. The flavor follows the nose with a clean dose of our signature EQ juice. We’d like to thank Middletown for giving our project a home and all Veterans for giving us the freedoms we enjoy today. Shout out to Grampa.
This Wednesday, 03/04/20, starting at 5 PM at 2 South Street, we are pleased to bring you Barrel Aged Equilibrium=Mostra Coffee Cuvée (12 % ABV Imperial Stout). $22per 500ml // Limit 1pp
There is something equivocal about making great beer and great coffee. It comes from the quality of ingredients, technique, and passion; something we feel we share with Mostra Coffee. We wanted to build an all encompassing project based off of one blend that Mostra Coffee has created for us. This blend of Philippine Sitio Belis, Colombia Passiflora, and Brazil Oberon called Equilibrium=Mostra Coffee Cuvée is a blend we will use for multiple phases for our event on 03/04/20. To commemorate the experience we wanted to create a beer that showcases both the notes of this well executed blend and our decadent bourbon barrel aged beer. We took one of our stouts that has rested in a Willet barrel for close to one year and conditioned on this very special proprietary blend. Equilibrium=Mostra Coffee Cuvée pours pitch black with a nice tan head. Aromas of chocolate, carmel, and fresh brewed coffee waft off the pour. The flavor follows with a decadent blast of fudge brownie, mild nuttiness, smooth cold brew coffee, and a touch of sweetness cut by a creamy bourbon barrel finish. A true experience in a bottle. To reap the full rewards of this coffee treatment, we recommend drinking fresh.
This Saturday 02/29, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we are bringing back Harvester of Simcoe (8.8% ABV DIPA). $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. This time we used an all cryo simcoe dryhop intensifying the flavor and aroma. Harvester of Simcoe has deep notes of passion fruit, bright pine, berry and earth, followed by some bready notes. The taste is bright luscious tropical fruits with a light pine backbone supported by a firm but rounded bitterness and an even bigger #EQjuice finish.
This Saturday 02/29, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we are bringing you out next Pilsner, South St. Pils (5.5% ABV). $15 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. After extensive lagering, our second Pilsner is here. To pay homage to our new digs, and to be a perfect companion to our BBQ program, Equilibrium Bonfire, we named this house pilsner after our new street address. South St. Pils pours a pale golden yellow, has a very soft hop aroma and drinks light bodied and crispy. We get flavor notes of flower medleys, fresh cut lawn, and bready crackers along with a nice clean finish that refreshes your palate. One more can to come!
This Saturday 02/29, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we are pleased to brining you the first in a series, Barrel Aged Austin Sauvignon Blanc (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 the Sauvignon Blanc 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, lovely funk, light hay, floral grape notes with a kiss of sweet fruit and a underlying oak character with each sip. This ale is gentle, soft, and dry with a beautiful creamy aspect to its body and a tongue clique tart finish. We are really proud of this one as it points to where our barrel aged program is headed. Look for more iterations in the coming weeks. BAASB will continue to evolve over time if properly cellared. More to come!
This Saturday 02/29, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we are bringing back Dreamwave Fluctuation, a Collab with Other Half Brewing Company . (8.1% ABV DIPA). $20 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. We are bringing back the first lactose beer we ever did just in time for Pastrytown. We kept EQ’s fluctuation grain bill and added oats and lactose in-line with Other Half’s Dream treatment. This beer was followed by an aggressive dry hop of Galaxy and Citra. Dream Wave Fluctuation pours a hazy glowing tangerine color releasing aromas of passion fruit, peach, lime sorbet, melon, lactose, and pineapple all integrated with a juicy twist. The taste is a smooth, bright, extra creamy, and a tropical wave of flavor with a touch of sweet that finishes with an enormous #EQjuice profile making this batch even more dangerously drinkable and balanced. One of our Brewers, OG Kyle says this batch is the 🐐! If you know OG, you know he doesn’t mess around!
This Saturday 02/29, starting at 11:30am at 2 South Street, we bring you the next in the Sigma series, 2Sigma (10.2 % ABV TIPA). $22 per four pack. Limit 1 case per person, limits subject to change. We are back with another distribution in the series with the mean set equal to that of Straight out of the Laboratory. 2Sigma is the second standard deviation above the mean which builds on the SOTL base and adds our now standardized Energy treatment and a balanced addition of Lactose. There will be more Sigmas in the future, as we explore additional deviations from our SOTL base. 2Sigma pours a very hazy yellow color with an explosive creamsicle orange nose. We find flavors of a Caribbean fruit stand with guava, melon, passionfruit, mango, and pineapple all in a creamy push pop form. The mouth feel is luscious and creamy while the beer ends with our signature #EQjuice finish.”
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. 🔥🐕
