June Beer Blog

The taproom has been humming lately and Logan and I are trying to give you all the variety you so deserve. The patio has opened, and the market has started on Wednesdays. The air has finally warmed so IPA’s and burgers have been a constant at my house. The grill is used frequently. What does this have to do with anything? Mostly it’s about what I am excited about and I am hoping for you to be excited about as our first official night of summer arrives. The solstice is coming right around the corner and we want you to come out to the taproom to try this new delicious beer. Another beer has been brought back from last year as of one week ago. Its hazy, spiced and perfect for pints and growlers. Let me tell you about them.
Kicked to the Herb: Hemp Pale Ale 5.5% ABV and 55 IBUs
This beer is high on tropical notes of Mango, papaya and citrus fruits from the use of a lot of Citra hops. To counterbalance that, I used a good amount of Chinook hops as well to add an element of pine to the nose and a diluted Hemp Oil from NJ farms. The malt bill has a decent amount of wheat in it to help it with a body and give it honey like color. We are sampling it on the 19th of June and then releasing it on the 21st at our Summer Solstice party on the patio. I used yeast that produces a lot of fruit esters to give the final product to make it more approachable to non-hopheads but to also give the big fans of hops something to love.
White Clover: Witbier 5.2% ABV and 22 IBUs
A classic Belgian inspired wheat beer brewed with a copious amount of wheat and spiced with coriander and Seville orange peel. Hopped with Czech Saaz to impart that classic grassy note, and Comet to add an extra bit of grapefruit aroma to meld with the orange peel. It has a peppery bite and a smooth body with a totally unfiltered hazy complexion. My version of a porch pounder.
As for the month of June, we have tapped three other taproom exclusives.
Dawn of the Crimson Howler: Bourbon Barrel aged Red IPA
Golden Halo: Belgian style Triple
NorthStar: Double Pale Ale
East Town Czech Style Pilsner and Blood Orange Platform Pilsner will be coming back soon.
We will keep brewing if you keep on drinking. Cheers.
