April 8th is a Double Release!

1. Genetic Erosion is a big, black version of Genetic Drift. This beer spent a month in some fresh bourbon barrels, and some neutral bourbon barrels. The grain bill is Pilsner, wheat, chocolate malt, midnight wheat, oats, and rye. It was fermented with our house blend of microbes which includes 3 strains of brett, Belle Saison, house wild yeast harvested from Holland, MI off of a crab apple flower, and other wild microbes from Comstock Park. This beer is not very funky or acidic yet, but we expect it to get funkier with aging. The flavor profile is dominated by malt, oak, and bourbon. As with all of our beers, it's very dry. Genetic Erosion clocks in at 9% abv. 82 cases were produced. $20/bottle. Public limits will be set after Cultured Club sales end.

2. Genetic Drift is our house wild saison. We dry hopped it with Mosaic and Saaz again, but we doubled the dry hopping rate from batch 1, so the hops are much more prevalent. Only 40 cases were produced, so this is very limited. $15/bottle. Limit 1/person.

Bottle reservations begin Saturday, April 1st at noon, and run until Friday, April 7th at noon. Get the refresh finger ready, because the last release sold out in under a minute. Here's the Eventbrite link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/speciation-april-release-tickets-33120298705

Please reserve 1 ticket per desired bottle. On pick up day you may pay for your bottle(s) with cash or credit card (we use square). Each ticket represents 1 bottle of beer, so please make sure to order the correct amount of tickets! PLEASE do not reserve tickets if you cannot be here yourself or send a proxy to pick up the bottles. If you reserve X amount of tickets, you will be expected to pay for X amount of bottles on the pickup day.

Pickup day is Saturday April 8th, from 10 am - 4 pm. Cultured club members may opt to wait until the next release (May 13th) to pick up, or schedule a time to come pick up bottles from me directly.

Also, remember that proxies are allowed. We just need a copy of the purchaser's ID and the proxy's ID, as well as their order (digital copies are totally fine, try not to kill too many trees!) Also, since the full price of the bottle isn't paid for up front, it will be the proxy's responsibility to pay for the bottles at pickup.
