Hops Selection 2021

Hops selection is always a big event in the fall for brewers and breweries. Pre-COVID, our team would fly out to Washington to try out the hops in-person, and now, we get hops overnighted to try to replicate the experience from the brewery as we plan our brews for the year.

Check out some of what goes on behind the scenes in the selection process with Production Planning Manager Brian Hink, Procurement Manager Mark Graves, and Brewery Operations Manager James Fox, as well as some of the hop-tastic photos we took during one of these sessions!

Fizz the Season and Snowplace Like Home!

It’s time for another round of releases this weekend! On draft only and available in the Tasting Room on tap and in growlers to-go is Fizz the Season, our 8.5% ABV Brut IPA made with white grape juice.

Next is a brew some of you have definitely had before, but it’s being welcomed into our seltzer family officially in a brand new 12-ounce can. Just look at how festive our octopus is in this cover photo!

"The Mezcal variant is my personal favorite of the two and I look forward to sipping on this one on cold December nights next to a fire."

Deck Your Home With Boughs of Barley

It’s that time of year again, folks! We’re back with more Boughs of Barley variants.

This year, we grabbed some Wheat Whiskey and Mezcal barrels to create two versions that pair well with sharing with loved ones, sitting by the fire, and tasting nights.

“The cinnamon is a nice touch. It’s very subtle. I got it a lot on the first sip, and then you don’t taste it as much.”

"He comes to work with a smile on his face, he’s got a good attitude, and in general, he’s got an awesome personality and sense of humor. He’s just fantastic.”

Meet John!

John Ackley is the brewery’s newest Warehouse Associate, and he’s been killing it so far. He’s thoughtful, articulate, and not only a pleasure to talk to, but a pleasure to work with as well!

“John is an integral team member to the warehouse,” says Warehouse Manager Polly Pollock-Bell. “When I throw a task his way, he gets it done. I don’t have to worry about following up, and I know if he’s on it, it’s taken care of. He’s also taken on a lot more responsibility quickly. There have been a few times that I’ve had to rely on someone when I’m not there, and I’ve been able to rely on him. He comes to work with a smile on his face, he’s got a good attitude, and in general, he’s got an awesome personality and sense of humor. He’s just fantastic.”

(Ed. note: We couldn’t include all of Polly’s insight on John, but she wants everyone to know that this is just a snapshot of why she’s so excited to work with him!)

“This makes a dessert beer. Huge rum barrel overtones with coconut, vanilla and a tiny bit of cinnamon. A real sipper.”

We highly recommend drinking Ties the Room Together while you watch (or rewatch!) The Big Lebowski for a ~heightened~ experience.

An Extra Special Bitter and a White Cream Stout

You didn’t think we were done with the fall goodness yet, did you??

This week, we’re bringing back TWO favorites: Biscuits and Honey and Ties the Room Together! One is an “Extra Special Bitter” that really just tastes like honey and biscuit goodness (hence the name) and the other is a White Stout that goes down oh-so-smooth.
