May Bottle and Can Release

As you know... Summer is for sours! We have been working really hard to prepare for the summer months, and I have to say that our summer line up is absolutely insane. We will be kicking it all off with our May release, which is packed with goodies, including a few favorites from last year, and a bunch of new and exciting barrel aged sours.

Also, on May 11th at 10am (the bottle release day) we will be holding a spirit barrel aged tap takeover in our tasting room, featuring some of our favorite spirit barrel aged beers! It will be a release worth attending in person!

Tickets go up to the public on Saturday, ‘May the 4th be with you’ at noon. Reservations end when sold out or on Friday, May 10th at noon. Reserve your bottles through eventbrite. Proxies are allowed to pickup bottles on your behalf but must show a copy of the purchaser’s ID and proxies’ ID and pay for bottles at pickup.

Pickup day is May 11th from 10am to 4pm.


Facilitated Adaptation - Tequila Barrel Aged Sour w/ Pineapple & Dry Hopped w/ Motueka & MI Heritage - This was one of our favorite 2018 releases, so we blended it again, increased the fruit, and changed up the hops a bit. This year is tropical, grassy, and hoppy, with just the right amount of tequila. As you may know, our tequila BA beers are nothing to be afraid of if you don't like tequila. They are very juicy and tropical, and the tequila is an accent to the beer, not a major player in the flavor profile. $22 per corked and caged 750ml bottle. Limit 4/person.

L'Obel - Foeder Aged Sour w/ Boysenberry - Another one of our favorite 2018 releases is back! This year's blend is slightly funkier than last year, with a sweet, herbal raspberry flavor and a big juicy finish. This one has a delightful Fruity Pebbles like flavor profile! $20 per corked and caged 750ml bottle. Limit 4/person.

Humanoid Tree Blood - BLIS Maple Syrup Bourbon Barrel Aged Sour Ale w/ Peaches - A collaboration with our friends at BLIS! Jay and Eric from Blis really wanted to make a big, funky maple/bourbon barrel aged peach sour... and that's what we've got on our hands here! This one is bursting with cooked & caramelized peaches, maple syrup, and booze... in a good way. $24 per corked and caged 750ml bottle. Limit 1/person. Less than 50 bottles available.

Common Descent - Berliner Weisse Style Ale - w/ Lime & Orange Zest - This year we will be releasing FIVE different versions of Common Descent. This brand went over so well last year, and for good reason. These beers will all be low abv, super refreshing, lightly tart, and will all have lime plus one other flavor. For the first one, we wanted to keep things simple. Fresh lime zest and juice, plus pounds of dried sweet orange peel come together to make an ultra drinkable, low calorie, and low carb beer at 3.8% abv. $20 per 4 pack of 16oz cans. Limit two 4 packs/person. Less than 80 available.

Thought Machine - Native Fermented Cider w/ Apricot & Plum - Our second cider release... and we switched to 16oz cans! This batch is quite different from our first cider, Fermi Paradox. Less funk, and a lot more fruit. Equal parts apple, apricot, & plum... this batch is very fruity, but still dry! This cider is perfect for your gluten free friends that miss beer in their lives! $20 per 4 pack of 16oz cans. Limit one 4 pack/person. Less than 40 available.
