Can Release Party: @theSherbertPervert IPA

The Sherbert Pervert IPA:

This beer is a Sherbert IPA. We don’t really know if that exists… but well… it does.

Lactose, oats, and a blend of our favorite European base malts provide a hint of bread, toast, & pastries, and a rich and full bodied mouthfeel.

A perverted amount of citrusy and fruity hops, but with low bitterness keep this beer drinkable and refreshing.

We’ve also created some special glassware for the occasion.

More details to come… but we’ll see you there!

Release Party: Pariah Brewing Collab – Do Your Dance (Sour IPA w/ Boysenberries).

Do You. Do Your Dance. Do What Makes You Happy.

That’s the mantra for this beer that we brewed with our very good friends and muses at Pariah Brewing Company. It’s a Sour IPA w. Boysenberries added during fermentation.

The malt base for the beer is very close to a Pariah favorite of ours. This was kettle soured for a very short

 

period to add a touch of refreshing tartness.
Loads of Citra, Idaho 7, & Mosaic were added during the whirlpool and dry hop for a massively fruity and citrus hop character.

We finished all of that off with boysenberry purree. The result is a beer that is complex, yet well balanced. It’s the closest thing to biting into a fresh piece of juicy fruit that we can think of.

We’re canning this wonderful collab up and will have cans ready to go on for our party.

We’ll be watching one of our favorite purple movies as well.

See you soon!

Trivia Night – Study Hall Edition

Study Hall Edition:
Beer Exam Prep

This is a special edition of Trivia Night! It’s a fun and stress free way to review some beer facts right before a beer exam. We know that there is a certain exam right around the corner, so we thought it would be fun to review some of the material in a more light-hearted, stress free zone.

Non-Geeks Welcome!

It’s all about having fun while we learn. So all levels of beer enthusiasts should come. You probably know more than you think, and it’s a good way to learn some cool facts about beer in a non-threatening, snob-free zone. It’s a great way to learn more about the beer certifications that are out there as well!

Glitter Bat Gang – Can Release Party

Glitter Bat Gang –
Sour Wheat Ale Blended w/ Fresh Apple Juice Newtopia Cyder Collaboration:

Remember that one time the whole block was taped off by the Cops? They were investigating some bad guys. While they opened up a trunk, they pulled out a baseball bat covered in pink glitter…. the Glitter Bat Gang had struck again!! To celebrate those sweet but sour moments, Home Brewing Co. and Newtopia Cyder bring you Glitter Bat Gang.

We started with our Gose base beer, and added 49% fresh apple juice from Newtopia Cyder. We allowed the beer/cider mix to ferment all of the way through. The result is a hard cider/beer hybrid that bursts with fresh apple/pear/peach/bready/honey-like aromas, and drinks with a refreshing hint of lactic tartness, and a crisp/dry finish.

We think it’s quite delicious, so we’re excited to offer these to you in cans to go for the first time!

 

PRESALE:

We’ll keep your stash cold for you. Order Now.

Release Party:

Join us as we celebrate our beautifully quirky neighborhood. We’ll be hanging out in our backyard, and enjoying a film. Bring your own snacks and a warm blanket.
