Apparent Destination is the fourth beer we’ve made for the yearly Honey Summit put on by the National Honey Board. This year, we made a saison brewed with rice, Missouri unmalted red wheat, four year old whole cone Cascade, Missouri wildflower honey, black peppercorn and plums. Fermented on more plums, we then lagered this Saison for 6 weeks before racking half into second use Smooth Ambler barrels and kegging the rest. Layers of stone fruit, bubblegum, black pepper and honey all day.
Another year of Belgian Fest collabs wouldn’t be complete without another hazy IPA with someone who has influenced our ideas on what hoppy beer can be, like WeldWerks. Brewed with a blend of malt bills from both breweries and crushed with freshy-fresh Citra, Simcoe and Ekuanot Cyro. Notes of mixing orange juice and pineapple juice at the Holiday Inn Express, bike rides on the beach in Savannah, and orange marmalade covered trees.
Once again we’ve teamed up with our buds from Craft Beer Cellar to keep the summer months rolling. We revisited an old recipe and fermented on Kiwi purée to bring this bright tropical acidic crusher to life. This beer features notes of blue Gushers, electrocooler Hi-C, and eating kiwis whole in the backseat of a ‘89 Camaro.
We brewed this massive imperial stout to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our good friends at Churchkey. Brewed with peanut flour and salt, fermented on chocolate sauce, and steeped on whole roasted peanuts, this high gravity beverage reminds us of eating too many Reese’s Eggs and crushing donuts hungover on a Monday morning with Tim Liu.
Funky Wit Cherry is the newest addition to our fruited Funky Wit series. We aged our Witbier in one of our French oak foeders for nearly a year, then transferred it onto tart cherries for 4 months. Notes of cinnamon, pie crust, and bursting with cherries. Naturally carbonated.
Unicorn Tears is our imperial stout base aged for 18 months in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels and then steeped on Balaton Tart Cherries from Michigan for 4 months. Brewed in collaboration with our friends at Fremont Brewing Company. 13% ABV
