IN THE TANK, OUT THE TANK (VOL. 7)

Pay no attention to the fact that I haven’t updated this blog in more than half a year. So let’s get right to it, then. Our 2nd Anniversary is a week away, and we have some cool things planned for Year Three. Increased distribution, a little bit of canning, more barrel-aged beers, additional mainstay brands to accompany Killer Diller, and …

Be on the lookout for a few malty lagers early this summer. We recently tapped Faintheart, a low-ABV red lager with a strong caramel malt presence. One guy referred to it as “malt-nificent.” (That guy was me.) About a week from now, we’ll tap Smoke & Oats, an amber with a generous helping of beechwood smoked malt. It’s a personal …

Sometimes it’s a grind. But at the end of the day, literally and figuratively, there’s beer. There’s music, too, and someday I’ll write about that. But right now, this is about beer. So let’s talk about what’s up and coming. Spring calls for lighter styles, so naturally we brewed an imperial stout. Evolution’s End will finish at just under 9% …

I’d like to begin this installment by thanking my loyal readership. You’ve inspired my brewing, you’ve inspired my writing, and I owe a debt of gratitude to the both of you. It’s been a while since I last checked in – more than a month, in fact – and I suppose a lot has happened during that time. We closed …

Turns out I was three for three on my predictions. We did, indeed, brew Good Tidings Belgian Christmas Ale, Chocolate Town Cream Stout, and Collapsium Barleywine. They will almost certainly be released in that order, beginning with Good Tidings on the first Wednesday in December. Barley Storm, our Winter Warmer, continues to rest patiently in the fermenter. It’s a big …

Since our last little secret rendezvous here in blogland, Astrid and The Stache have both gone to print, and Good Eye Sniper has run its course in the fermenter. This batch of Sniper is promising as ever, with a slightly lower ABV (8.3%) and a properly dank hops bill (including Citra, Sorachi Ace, Mosaic, et. al.). It will flow forth …

Thanks for tuning in to this first installment of In The Tank, Out The Tank. Sex, money, religion, and politics – all fine topics. But we’ll save those for our next beer pairing dinner. Instead, we’ll use this space to communicate the most compelling matters concerning the brewery… A few weeks ago, we acquired two 53-gallon barrels from Wigle Whiskey. …
