This week we see the return of a popular sour- the Cuvée D’Bandwagon! This golden dry hopped sour joins recent trends in sour beer with copious dry hopping after the souring process. Barrelmaster Matt added plenty of Saaz and Chinook hops, which lend spicy, herbal, and piney notes. We’re still straddling the seasons, so we have the last of all your Winter favorites like Lashes and Framinghammer on tap alongside Springtime picks like Sunny Ridge and Maibock Hurts like Helles so we’ve got you covered no matter the weather this week.
We aged a batch of Leisure Time in wine barrels with souring organisms for over a year to bring you Sour Time! Light, tart, funky, and dry, this beer is perfect for sour lovers or those who want a little something different. Sour Time is a draft only release, so come have a pint with lunch or dinner this week! Also on draft this week is Big Red Mitch– an imperial red lager named after our favorite used-to-be-ginger salesman. This is a wicked hoppy lager brewed with simcoe, centennial, amarillo, and idaho-7 hops. Available for pours and growler fills.
Leisure Time is now available in twelve packs of 12 oz cans following its first canning this week! We have a limited amount of cans so come grab yours while they’re fresh. Additionally, the Ninth Blend in our Sour Barrel Project series is now available in bottles. The Ninth Blend combines three lagers that were soured in a combination of red and white wine barrels. This is a brewery exclusive brew so be sure to stop by and pick one up. We’re also bringing two new beers on draft this week. Sibling Ryevalry is a new rye IPL brewed with Simcoe and Chinook hops. The piney herbal hop character compliments the spicy rye backbone. If hops aren’t your thing, that’s okay. A new black lager brewed with oats, lactose, and tons of roasted malt, Baby Hammer, will hit the taps as well. Sweet, dark, and full bodied, come grab a pint to warm you up on a chilly evening!
The Beer Hall & Kitchen will be CLOSED Thursday November 26th in celebration of Thanksgiving- other than that, we’re open regular hours! 11:30-9 Tues, Wed, and Sun and 11:30-11 Fri, Saturday.
Ginger & Juice returns this week- IPL infused with ginger and grapefruit puree made here in our kitchen. Spicy, juicy, and delicious. This beer is draft only.
We also have two new developments from our Sour Barrel Project– ABS and Sour Red. Both are lagers soured in red and white wine barrels for over a year. ABS will be available on tap and in bottles. Sour Red is draft only.
