Fashion Shoots to Bottles, and Brewing Zacca Sesh with Homestead!

Lots of awesome things are happening! That “TBA IPA” we brewed has turned into Fashion Shoots, a New England India Pale Ale! What what makes things even better, is that it is getting bottled December 10th. We are still finishing up the artwork, but you’ll find a teaser in the header of this post. Hope to be getting those in people’s hands very soon!

Probably the most awesome of awesome is that we’ve set a brew day to do Zacca Sesh at a 15 barrel scale with Homestead Brew Co and Pies & Pints. We will be headed over to Homestead’s brewery on December 15th bright and early. Once the beer is ready, it will be shipped to all seven Pies & Pints locations in Ohio. We may try to snag a few half barrel kegs to put it on tap in Findlay and Port Clinton (but still working out those details). We will keep you guys updated.

We WON The White Elephant Homebrew Competition

Our Zacca Sesh WON the White Elephant Homebrew Competition hosted by Pies & Pints and Homestead Brew Co. We are planning a time to meet with them to discuss taking our recipe up in scale, as well as planning potential brew days. We are so excited! This means that our beer gets brewed to be on tap at all 7 Pies & Pints locations in Ohio! We will post more updates as we get more details. Such great things are happening lately!

Honorable Mention in 2017 Homebrew Label Awards!

Our label for “The Hop Healer” won an Honorable Mention in the 2017 Homebrew Label Awards! Thanks so much if you helped us win by voting during the competition. We received a bunch of useful prizes! They are so useful that we are going to change up what we brew next. So the Pompous Tele-Porter batch #2 will be bumped back in the brew days. We will be making a new IPA recipe that will utilize the awesome grain and hop package from BSG Craft Brewing on our November 5th Brew Day now. Details for name and such on the new beer will be coming soon. For now check out the prizes we won!

White Elephant and Pompous Tele-Porter Batch #2

The Zacca Sesh gets bottled this week, so we are thinking about submitting it to the White Elephant Homebrew Competition hosted by Pies & Pints and Homestead Brew Co. If we win, our beer gets brewed at scale to be distributed all 7 Pies & Pints locations in Ohio!

We also set a date for batch number 2 of Pompous Tele-Porter to be brewed. This beer had great reviews the first time around, and we are looking forward to brewing it again. We might be using a different coffee bean this time around (unless we get our hands on more of those Hoof Hearted bourbon barrel aged coffee beans).

Updates, Bottling, Things and Stuff!

We’ve changed the bottling date for Zacca Sesh and Method Milk Stout – those will both be bottle on September 27th.

Batch three of Ghostface Chilla is scheduled to be bottled in early October. We’ve tweaked this recipe yet again, but it is coming at the same ABV of 7.6% for your drinking pleasures.

The Brunicorn stickers were a big hit, and we already ran out. Since the demand was so high, we’ve purchased some more! Go snag these in the shop or meet up with one of the Brew Crew.

Beers on Beers on Beers!

We’ve got a lot on deck for you guys! The Zacca Sesh will be brewed Saturday.

Our newest stout, Method Milk Stout, is getting close to being bottle ready. Putting some final touches on the label and secondary additions (coffee, hazelnuts, and vanilla)!

We also are going to pop out batch three of Ghostface Chilla on labor day weekend. So many beers in the works, and more will be coming!

Oh, and we now have our Brunicorn on STICKERS! These die-cut Brunicorn stickers are 2.91″ x 2.4″ and need to be put on everything! Snag some now in the shop.
