You Don’t Want to Miss These Beers!

We are bottling up a few beers here at the end of May slash start of June. First to go to bottling is Night Riddles. This beer is our first attempt at a tropical stout. We gave it the final taste test over the weekend, and it is nice and refreshing. This is a stout that you’ll have no trouble crushing on a hot day! Next in line for bottling is our second batch of Wheezin Teh Juice. This DIPA will have you channeling your inner Encino Man (so don’t let anyone tell you no wheezing the juice)!

Yesterday we brewed Call Me Dragon, which is our first pale ale. This one is loaded up with Citra and Amarillo hops, plus we are going to dry hop with even more! The artwork is coming along, and should be revealed in our next post.

Next brew day is going to be Pyramid Scheme. This is our first gose style beer! We will be adding key lime zest to this one. This beer’s art is also in the works, and should make the it into the next post as well.

Our Brunicorn bottle caps are going to be retired for awhile (much sadness)! Our current supplier is just too expensive to keep these going until we can make some money on our beers. For the short term we will be switching over to solid purple bottle caps (thanks for all the feedback on our Facebook poll). The Brunicorn caps are not going to be gone forever though, so don’t be too sad!

Now for some competition updates! Sadly we did not win the Listermann New England IPA/DIPA competition with our Sax on the Peach. We are still submitting it into the Ohio State Fair Homebrew Competition, along with our Tennial Sesh though. Coming up in July is another competition we are going to enter by The Hancock County Home Brewers Association. We are not 100% sure what we will be using for our submission yet. Stay tuned for more information!

New Stickers and Beers Bottled!

We’ve been working hard all around! We’ve added not one, not two.. but FIVE new stickers to the shop. You can now stick Applez N Sht, Lt. Dan, The Hop Healer, Swheat Punch, and Scissor Kick Sammy all over! Go and buy some already! Please note that the shop is being reformatted to make it easier to purchase items. Right now you have to click the name of the item to go to the product page (or just use the links in this post above).

Two more beers are all bottled up! The second batch of Tennial Sesh is FAF, and ready to be crushed on the pool side, mowing the lawn, or wherever your heart desires. We also have finished up the artwork and put caps on Sax on the Peach. This saxy peach beer will have you hitting all sorts of high notes. We’re hoping that these beers will win us some competitions!

We switched the date on batch two of Wheezin Teh Juice so we didn’t overlap with Mother’s Day. This beer will be hopped up on Galaxy and El Dorado, and then loaded with toasted coconut, pineapple, and vanilla.

Artworks, Beer Updates, Words are Hard!

Quick little update to keep you all on your toes! The artwork for Night Riddles is completed! We are still finishing up the description text, label, and such. For now you can get a little teaser in the banner. This beer is our first attempt at a tropical stout. It is scheduled to be bottled in June.

Our second batch of Tennial Sesh is going to be bottled in early May. We have revamped the artwork. Go check it out in the banner or on the beer page.

The beer we brewed to submit to some competitions now has a name – Sax on the Peach. This beer is a New England style DIPA. We will be submitting this to the Listermann Brewing Company‘s Hip Hop Battle Home Brew Competition, as well as the Ohio State Fair Homebrew Competition. We will be bottling up what’s left of the batch for all your peachy needs!

The next brew day is going to be our second batch of Wheezin Teh Juice. More updates on that in the next post.. Don’t stop wheezin teh ju-uice!

Such Brews, Much Noms!

We have some more brews bottled up and ready for the drinking. The second batch of Swheat Punch is ready for this nice Spring weather (well once the snow goes away). Our third batch of Applez N Sht came out great (and will disappear quickly). We also are going to bottle the second batch of The Hop Healer this weekend (and she sure is juicy)!

We brewed our first “Tropical Stout” that is going by the name of Night Riddles. Artwork and beer page are still in process, but will be sure to please! Keep on the lookout for more details of that beer in our next post.

We will be brewing our second batch of Tennial Sesh this weekend. Going to switch up the artwork for with some fresh bitmojis too! That is planned to be bottled in early May.

Listermann Brewing Company posted a Hip Hop Battle Home Brew Competition, so we are working up a juicy NE IPA recipe to enter. The winner of this competition will win a gift card to the shop along with the opportunity to brew their recipe for an upcoming can release. We are hoping we can take yet another home brew competition by storm! We are going to brew that on April 15th, so we can make the deadline to enter.

Brews Brewed, Bottling, and Brewing!

Get pumped people – we’ve got beers on beers!

We finished up the artwork for Lieutenant Dan and Scissor Kick Sammy (check the banner or their beer pages). This is just in time too, because on Sunday we bottle up these two beers.

There are some other beers in the pipeline as well. We just brewed up a new batch of The Hop Healer (with that artwork everyone loves so much). It will be be a bit before that one is ready to bottle up, but keep on the lookout. We also have Swheat Punch and that Applez N Sht coming along. So many beers, and not enough time to drink them all!

Juicy Brews Columbus, Bottles, and Beers!

Our Zacca Sesh (that we brewed with Homestead Brew Co and Pies & Pints) will be featured at Homestead’s spot in Juicy Brews Columbus – Hazy IPA Fest! There are going to be a lot of great beers at this festival, and we are pumped ours is going to be included!

In other brew news, we have bottled up our first brown ale – Ro Sham Bo. We still are not able to sell our beers yet, but if you get in contact with one of the crew we should be able to pass a bomber along.

This Sunday we are brewing a new batch of our hoppy wheat ale called Swheat Punch.

We have some other beers that are brewed, but are still coming along in fermentation. We have our first sour, but no name yet (note that will be close to a year before it is ready). We have our first cream ale called Lieutenant Dan coming along. We also have an Irish stout called Scissor Kick Sammy. So be on the look out for new posts once we have those artworks finished up, and more details on bottle dates!

Ro Sham Bo Art and GrogTag’s Staff Pick for Best Label!

We finished up the artwork for Ro Sham Bo! You can catch a glimpse on the left side of the banner for this post (or jump to its beer page). The beer is still doing its thing – but we will update more once it is ready for consumption. It’s our first attempt at a brown ale, but should be really tasty! (Mmmh maple syrup). We are currently planning on bottling in the middle of the month.

Our label for The Hop Healer snagged a spot in GrogTag’s Staff Picks for Best Beer Labels of 2017! We are really happy to receive even more recognition for this label (for those who don’t know – it also won honorable mention in the 2017 Homebrew Label Awards). I mean who doesn’t love the Brunicorn?!
