We start with a traditional German Hefeweizen recipe, using 50% wheat malt and 50% Pilsner malt. Without being too irreverent to the original style, we make some of our own modern twists, the first being a sizeable whirlpool hop addition which lends a very refreshing citrus note that pairs nicely with the delicate sweetness from the wheat and Pilsner malts. We use an American-German hybrid yeast strain, which contributes the characteristic Hefeweizen fruitiness, with notes of banana, but with a restrained spicy phenolic character, keeping the beer approachable while maintaining the complexity of a well-crafted wheat beer.
Puesta del Sol, which translates to “sunset” in Spanish, is our own spin on the Vienna lager style with nods to both its Austrian and Mexican roots. We use an equal amount of Vienna and Pilsner malts for the base along with several types of Munich malts to create a soft, delicate malt sweetness. Hallertau hops add just enough bitterness to balance the malt character and work with the lager yeast to produce a clean and complex beer with a crisp, dry finish. Puesta del Sol is a flavorful amber lager that invokes the tranquil experience of a sunset, whether overlooking palaces in Vienna, beaches in Mexico, or peaks in Colorado.
Brewed with nearly 2,500 lbs of mango puree total, Mango Gose is our most extreme kettle sour to date. We added nearly 2,000 lbs of puree to the kettle at knock-out, which accounted for nearly half of the fermentables in the beer. Generous additions of both sea salt and coriander complement the juicy mango character and acidity from the kettle souring, and then we back sweetened with another 500 lbs of puree directly in the bright tank to put the mango front and center. The result is one of the most unique beers we have produced, and the perfect farewell to summer beer. CAUTION: this beer contains unfermented fruit and should be stored cold at all times.
Freshly squeezed key limes, vanilla beans, and just a hint of graham cracker pair perfectly with the tart wheat base beer in our Key Lime Pie Berliner. We colored a bit outside the lines to recreate our favorite summer dessert, adding over 250 lbs of key limes for the signature citrus character, lactose and vanilla beans for the pie filling, and just a hint of graham cracker for the crust. Tart, creamy, complex, and dangerously drinkable, KLPB is the perfect way to kick off the summer.
Our version of a New England-style IPA featuring a huge citrus and tropical fruit character from the Mosaic, Citra, and El Dorado hops, a softer, fluffier mouthfeel from the lower attenuation, and the characteristic New England hop haze. The end result is a beer reminiscent of citrus juice with extra pulp, thus the name Juicy Bits.
Beta Bits 1 is the first entry in our newest rotating hop series, featuring huge additions of Amarillo hops and Mosaic lupulin powder. The Beta Bits series, inspired by Juicy Bits, our popular New England-style IPA, will serve as our new playground/proving ground for everything hoppy. Beta Bits will pick up almost exactly where we left off with the Alpha Bits experimental series, which culminated in the release of our first ever widely-distributed packaged IPA by the same name. Beta Bits will allow us to continue our journey of hop exploration, by trialing different brewing techniques and testing new and experimental hop varietals and products, with the goal of pushing our hop boundaries even further with each iteration.
Beta Bits 2 opens with bold notes of ripe pineapple, candied lemon slices, and juicy Valencia oranges, followed by just a hint of resiny dankness. For this second entry in the Beta Bits rotating hop series, we kept the base beer the same as Beta Bits 1, but started with a brand new hop bill consisting of more than 7 lbs of Mosaic, Amarillo and Lemondrop hops per barrel. The Beta Bits series, inspired by Juicy Bits, our popular New England-style IPA, will serve as our new playground/proving ground for everything hoppy, allowing us to continue our journey of hop exploration by trialing different brewing techniques and testing new and experimental hop varietals and products, with the goal of pushing our hop boundaries even further.
