Sophomoric Sour

We just tapped into our new sour blend, which is 33% Hefeweizen and 66% sour, which complements each other quite well. Come on out and try it!

Next in line

Many thanks to those who were able to make it to the anniversary party and bottle release last Friday, it made for a great night! We do still have bottles of the 15th Anniversary Tripel available, and they'd be great for laying down for a while as well as enjoyment right now!

We have a new sour on for the moment, Decadence, which is a peach sour, blended with our Wit and also an addition of fresh mangoes, pureed and added directly to the serving barrel.

Also, next tapping is the Half Day Hefeweizen, which is on Monday July 18th, 7pm for the Mug Club and 8pm for the bar. It's a traditional Hefe made with 70% wheat, 13% of which was unmalted, which made for a rather interesting, and exhausting, brewday (just imagine trying to churn 900 lbs of cement.....) It turned out great though, with lots of bready rich flavors and a big nose of cloves and banana!

Next on the horizon will be a Hoppenweizen, which will be the same base as the Half Day, but hopped like our IPA, including a dry hopping addition (a healthy one at that!) Also coming up is a Dunkel Weiss, which we'll be doing a collaboration with City Provisions, made with real cherries added to the mash.

We're also doing a collaboration with Ken, brewmaster at Limestone Brewery, which we're still in talks of at the moment, but it's leaning towards a nice English Dark Mild. We're also planning to do a beer dinner pairing with Limestone as well later in August, but the specifics haven't been finalized, so check back for more details on that later!
