αβ (αlpha – βeta) Project is our quest to explore the freshest, unexplored, and unreleased hop varietals. We’ll also be experimenting with different hop products and new techniques in order to “WOW” our hop loving customers. With our normal lineup of beers we don’t have this freedom. This beer allows the brewers to push the boundaries, introducing our customers to a whole new realm of hoppy variations.
We will also be playing with different malt bills and brewhouse techniques in order to achieve a new hoppy beer each time. This beer will vary in hop intensity, alcohol by volume and color. It will vary in water chemistry and mouth-feel too. Sometimes this beer will be a single hop beer, but most often we’ll blend our varietals to achieve perfection. To put it simply, this beer will be an ever evolving quest for hoppiness.
Some past varietals and experiments include: Azzaca, Lemondrop, Ekuanot, High Wire CTZ, Denali, Eureka and Pink Boots. We are currently serving αβ Project: POWWOW – New England IPA. This creation was brewed with a mixture of CRYO® Mosaic hops, a regime of super citrus-like pellet hops, and a special yeast strain. All of these components together provide one hazy, juicy IPA!! And, be on the lookout for our next creation, which is another hazy IPA named East Coast Pine Rider!!
