House Beer Release: Island Baby

After a couple of months of aging, it is now time to set our little Island Baby free. 
This beer was born out of inspiration from a tiki drink and has finally come to fruition in this tropical, complex cocktail of a beer. 

Island Baby is the first release in our tiki inspired beer series. 
We took a malt forwad, 9% ABV base beer and then aged in St. Croix rum barrels for 7 weeks allowing all of the molasses, oak and caramel flavors to be imparted. We then re-fermented this base beer with pineapple, passionfruit and pomegranate juice to give it a ton of fruity tropical notes with a slight acidity to balance it out. 
Enjoy a glass of this beer and instantly be transported to your favorite island wearning cheap sunglasses, open toed shoes and way too little sun screen. 

9.1% ABV 22 IBU

Hop Flight Night / New IPA Release

We brewed an IPA base beer with only bittering hops and then dry hopped 4 separate kegs with Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe and El Dorado, respectively. This event was designed, with the hop heads in mind, to allow you to get the true experience of one particular variety of hop and how it contributes flavor to the same base beer. While this is not a true SMASH beer(single malt and single hop), it serves a similar purpose, with the focus being on the dry hop addition. We will be releasing all 4 of these kegs on August 8th and will serve flights of all 4 as a side by side comparison. That same night we will be releasing our IPA with a completely new dry hopping schedule, including our first time use of Simcoe lupulin powder.
