αβProject (αlpha – βeta) 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, Pink Boots 2018, Ales for ALS 2018, Cryo ® POWWOW NEIPA, double dry hopped – El Dorado – Brut IPA, Calypso IPA, EXP 09326 IPA, Mandarina Haze and Mandarina Haze 2.0, Sabro Hazy IPA, Huell Melon & EXP 472 Juicy IPA, and Ales for ALS 2019. We are currently pouring Raney Day IPL, a juicy India Pale Lager we collaborated on with Raney Cellars in Pennsylvania – this one has Idaho 7 and Cashmere – both exciting varietals!
