2p – Hop Sensory Workshop: Partnering with Yakima Chief Hops, we will have ourselves a hop blending party. Experience first hand how brewers create your favorite IPAs. Pick your favorite hops and blend with other hop profiles to create the sensory experience that you’ve always wanted. The winning hop blend will featured in the next IPA!

Sunday: Arts and Crafts and Beermosas: We’ve had all the fun we could possibly have in one weekend. Let take some time and relax with a drink and good company and make something fun.

Jared’s Crew Brew Release & St. Patty’s Day Beer Magic

Did someone say Green Glitter Beer?!

That’s right we did. Jacob is making dreams happen around here and Zana is “tapping” into her River Dance days and doing the Irish Jig in excitement. Will you be joining her? After a few Green Glitter Beers you will!

Another thing that makes us smile from ear to ear is our crew brews. Jared took one of his homebrew and with Jacob’s help, they are upping the ante!

A Dry Irish Stout with Coffee & Tea Collective and Oak Chips! And! At Jared’s request, we will be topping it with whipped cream. Because, it feels good to make magic happen and dreams come true. Looks like you could strike gold at Home Brewing Co.

Standardized Zesting Hazy IPA

We hate standardized tests, but we love standardized zest.

This new lactose IPA with bursting citrus hop flavor pairs well with our good friend Jesse Johnson and not testing your knowledge.
