Brew Day

Brew Days

As any brewer knows, the day to look forward to is brew day!
Below are write-ups on our very own brew days.

A brewers breakfast!Rise & Shine Brewers!

We've got some friends coming to visit sooner rather than later (which is always a great thing!). In order to celebrate their arrival we've been working on brewing up a few different options for them while they stay with us for the weekend (we'll be attending comicon in Chicago!). Our first offering got brewed up today - it's a Spotted Cow Clone with some tweaks here and there to get a flavor we really, really enjoy.

The holidays are fast approaching...

And when it comes to beer - being ahead of the game is key. You have to be brewing a few holidays ahead and that's exactly what we decided to do. We've never done a Holiday Porter yet and we decided that it was time we give something a try that had some holiday charm, with that nice warm pick-me-up that holiday brews tend to have. Want to know more about it? Read on!
