On Tap Now (Updated 11/10)
Little by Slowly – 3.6% ABV: Our first sour beer! This Berliner weisse undergoes a mixed-fermented followed by natural carbonation in the keg! The flavors include tart from the Lactobacillus, fresh bread dough from the wheat malt and no-boil, and a hint of lemon from Brettanomyces.
Ziparillo – 4.2% ABV: Inspired by Belgian Wit, but without the spices. We added a touch of hefeweizen yeast to enhance to natural apricot-fruitiness of Amarillo. We added hops at the end of the boil, and in the fermentor at the start of fermentation to minimize bitterness and hop grassy flavors to allow the fruiter flavors of Amarillo to shine!
Witarillo – 4.2% ABV: We put the inspiration into reality with the addition of coriander, fresh orange zest, and a touch of chamomile.
False Dragon – 5.3 ABV%: Spicy rye malt bolstered by a yeast blend that includes a small percentage of a spicy Belgian strain. Dry-hopped twice with Mosaic and Hallertau Blanc. Both varieties have a bit of that Sauvignon blanc twang we love!
Light & Beauty – 5.6 ABV%: Our new tropical hazy pale ale. The grain and hops are the same as Rings of Light, but we upped the alcohol and body a little and fermented with Conan to add stonefruit aromatics!
Cheater Hops: NM – 6.7% ABV: Nelson/Mosaic Cheater Hops!! Kegged one week ago! Nelson, the hop that we love (and tried to mimic in False Dragon) lends an aromatic experience of Gooseberry, Lychee, and White Wine only augmented by tropical Mosaic! If anything it comes across slightly hoppier after a week to let the raw “green” hop character subside.
House Saison – 7.0% ABV: The last of the kegged version is back until it isn’t. Funkier and drier than when we first tapped it in September. The rest of the batch is still hanging out in Sauvignon Blanc barrels for a Spring-2019 release!
