Hey folks! Sorry I didn't get around to updating the blog last week, had my hands full. We are chock-full with new beer this week, including some wildly limited goodies, take a look:
Tilted Barn Tate The Great
IPA | 6.5% ABV | 10 IBU
Tilted Barn returns!
Tate the Great features an amazingly soft Pilsner malt base and highlights one of Tilted Barn's favorite hops: Nelson Sauvin. Tate is a beautifully balanced 6.5% ABV and explodes with tropical fruit, white grape, and tangerine flavors and aromas.
Tilted Barn Aster
Double NEIPA | 8.2% ABV
Aster is the 9th beer in Tilted Barn's Flower Series! They brewed this Double IPA with a nod to this beautiful flower's Latin meaning of 'star', utilizing Northern Star Pilsner malt base and a hop combination of Galaxy, Comet, and Strata. Enjoy this beer while it lasts - it's out of this world!
Tilted Barn Milo's Phoenix
IPA | 6.8% ABV | 79 IBU
Built from a desire to improvise and explore, Milo's Phoenix has a simple malt bill, features a distinctly versatile and fruity yeast strain, and is dry hopped with heavy doses of dank, tropical Australian hops and bright, citrus forward American hops. Fruity, hazy, and juicy with notes of passion fruit, peach, and citrus rinds.
Tilted Barn Peeptoad
Pale Ale | 6.3% ABV | 69 IBU
Straw-colored, juicy American Pale Ale. Super hoppy like those peeptoads on the farm. Notes of citrus and tropical fruit.
Equilibrium x Weldwerks Sciencewerks
Double NEIPA | 8.5% ABV
ScienceWerks (DIPA) is EQ's newest collaboration with Weldwerks Brewing Co. It takes inspiration and elements from WeldWerks Juicy Bits and their previous collab, Tera Bit Rate Fluctuation, to bring you their newest project together. Loaded with an Idaho7 and Citra whirlpool and a Strata, Mosaic, Citra, and Citra Lupomax dry hop, ScienceWerks has intense aromas of fresh squeezed navel orange, ripe stone fruit, passionfruit sorbet, lime Pez, and dank hops, lending way to flavors of orange custard, tropical fruit salad with syrup, Fruity Pebbles cereal, and layers and layers of summer melon throughout. The ride of flavors "werks" its way into a bright #EQjuice finish, ending with a dank hoppiness to get you ready for the next sip!
Equilibrium POG Bubbles
IPA | 6.8% ABV
POG Bubbles uses a not yet publicly available Thiolized Conan from Omega Yeast, along with Phantasm, Galaxy, and Citra to bring you a beer dripping with POG (Passionfruit, Orange, and Guava) juice mimosa island vibes. POG Bubbles pours milky yellow, with bright aromas of tropical fruit nerds and tiki drinks. As the bubble chart on the label shows, they get intense fruit flavors of passionfruit juice, orange wedges, and guava, with whisps of lime, dank grass, and white grape. A spritzy finish kissed with rainbow melon EQ juice and a hoppy blast for balance brings this tropical vacation to you wherever you are and whenever you’re in need with just a few sips.
Charles Towne Fermentory Extra Sunny
Double NEIPA | 8.2% ABV
Extra Sunny is Sungazer's big brother, taking everything you love and amplifies it to the next level! CTF doesn't brew this one often, so don't miss out!
Charles Towne Fermentory Festbier
Märzen | 5.0% ABV
Brewed to celebrate Oktoberfest. Malt forward with notes of fresh baked bread, toffee, and light carmel. Lagered for 4 weeks, clean, crisp, full bodied.
Forest & Main Children of the Moon
West Coast IPA | 6.0% ABV
The time is right for a nice West Coaster. F&M brewed this one with German Pilsner, Vienna, and wheat malts and hopped it with lots of Idaho 7 and Chinook. They ferment their West Coast IPAs with their trusty British yeast, allowing it to drop bright and let those zippy hop notes shine.
Notes of getting high in History class, NJ Pine Barren citrus sleepovers, orange curd on toasted white bread, professional mangoes, and a bowl of peeled clementines.
Forest & Main x Human Robot Fäks Lager
Lager | 5.0% ABV
A fun collaboration F&M did with their pals Human Robot Beer. Andrew shared his decoction knowledge as they double decocted a base of Premium German Pilsner and Munich malts, hopped it with admirable amounts of Styrian Fox, fermented it cold with F&M's lager yeast, and aged it sideways in the traditional way for many weeks. Notes of challah dough, sliced pears, sparkling lemon water, golden honey, fresh crackers, a sassy hop character, and summer grain field.
Benchtop West Coast Mini Machine
West Coast IPA | 5.0% ABV
The folks at Benchtop have been digging all of the crispy west coast IPA's of late, so they decided to make a special West Coast version of their Mini Machine IPA. This one is an absolute crusher at 5.5%, but is still packed full of dank thanks to the addition of some Strata hops.
Benchtop Why The Gong Face
Double NEIPA | 8.0% ABV
You know it, you love it! Double NE IPA version of Benchtop's Hazing Face Pale Ale fermented with Norwegian Kveik yeast. Heavily hopped and dry-hopped with Galaxy hops, it’s delightfully tropical with refreshing notes of tangerine - perfect for your hot summer daze.
Two Villains Tattered Backstory
New England IPA | 6.7% ABV
Say hello to Two Villains out of Vernon Township, NJ!
What seems like ages ago, when they were just a couple months old as a business, they released an IPA called "Origin Story". That beer was an old homebrew recipe brought back to life on a big scale and they loved it. It's now BACK, but with a twist! they took what they loved so much about the first batch, added in a slightly larger and more complex grain bill, then implemented their more recent dry hopping methods and heavily dosed the brew with the ever pungent Galaxy/Citra/El Dorado/Azacca. Aromas of fresh citrus lead into flavors of ripe cantaloupe, pineapple gummies and a melange of berries. The mouthfeel/creaminess is unreal on this one and might be their juiciest single IPA yet!
The Answer x Angry Chair Mega Dose
Double NEIPA | 8.0% ABV
The Answer needs no introduction.
8% Hazy DIPA in Collaboration with Angry Chair Brewing from Tampa, FL dry hopped with Citra & Mosaic. Don't ask how I got this, cause I don't know. I don't anticipate us seeing stuff from them up here will be a regular thing, but who knows...
Final Gravity Juicebox
Double NEIPA | 8.0% ABV
Another Richmond brewery I've been asked about many times. Again, no idea if this will be a regular thing.
Hazy Double IPA with Strata, Citra and Belma hops.
Beer Zombies x Tactical Brewing House on Hazy Hill
Double IPA | 8.6% ABV
Only the ghosts in this house are glad we are here.....
Beer Zombies teamed up with their family at Tactical Brewing for an epic collab. A big hazy DIPA that they've smashed full of Citra, Citra Cryo, Galaxy & YQH1320 to give it that hoppy deliciousness. Then to play off the fruit nuances of the hops, they hit it with a dose of Guava!
Mason Ale Works x Paperback Brewing Tragedy At The Sock Puppet Theater
West Coast IPA | 7.0% ABV
Look folks, sometimes a beer comes along that you have to buy simply for the name. Such is the case with Mason Ale Works and Paperback Brewing's "Tragedy at the Sock Puppet Theater." This West Coast brew is everything you want in an IPA and more. Minus the tragically murdered sock puppets.
Casita x New Anthem Friendly Advice
Double IPA | 7.8% ABV | 60 IBU
This Double IPA was brewed with Maris Otter, Honey Malt, and Flaked Rye. Hopped with Simcoe and Mosaic. Brewed in collaboration with New Anthem!
Bingo Beer Oktoberfest
Märzen | 5.7% ABV | 60 IBU
Bingo Beer rarely misses and their Oktoberfest is no exception! Big malts with perfect balance.
Great Notion Queen Of Fruits
Fruited Sour | 6.0% ABV
Queen of Fruits is a mouthwatering tart ale brewed with loads of tropical passionfruit, mango, and mangosteen.
Precarious x Capsoul Full Drip
Fruited Sour | 5.1% ABV
A collaboration brew with Precarious' friends at Capsoul Brewing Collective to celebrate inclusivity and education in the ever growing craft beer community, as well as support the Triangle Block Market which focuses on promoting BIPOC owned businesses, artists, and entrepreneurs. Together they created a delectable Breakfast Sour Ale with Blueberry, Black Currant, Vietnamese Cinnamon, Vanilla, Maple, and a touch of Lactose. The result is a luxurious sour ale with layers of complexity that reads like a stack of French Toast covered in blueberry and maple syrup. It's the full drip!
Enay Day Ripper
NA Beer | 0.4% ABV
Day Ripper is a fresh and satisfying non-alcoholic Pilsnear made to be consumed for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Drink as many as you want without stealing happiness from tomorrow.
