Nerd Alert cansWe were playing around with some hops recently, as we are prone to do, and got our hands on a fun little hop called Mandarina Bavaria. This new German hop is used primarily for aroma, and gives off soft mandarin orange and citrus flavors, with hints of pineapple. It is pleasant, light, and refreshing. Just like Nerd Alert.

We were trying to understand the characteristics of this crazy new hop and dry hopped 5 gallons of Nerd Alert with Mandarina Bavaria (Nerd Alert being a great base beer for testing hops). The results were pretty incredible. Nerd Alert isn’t a traditional pilsner because it is fermented with ale yeast (albeit at lower temperatures), and the dry hop added another subtle layer of complexity.

Our brewers were all like “this beer is even better, can we keep it this way!?” And who are we to say no to those pouty brewer faces?

You’ll be able to taste the new and improved Nerd Alert first in 12-pack 12oz cans, launching in early May 2016.

 

slap-fight-waxWe’re beyond excited to announce a limited edition run of our latest beer, Slap Fight. Each can has been dipped in hop-flavored wax to seal in the flavor. You can choose between one of four versions, each a hop prevalent in Slap Fight: Comet, Equinox, Mosaic and Bravo.

Our wax has been locally sourced before being infused with organic hop leaves. We worked with a local wax miner, Jimmy “Sourdough” Addams, to achieve the perfect color and viscosity of wax, enhancing the hoppy notes in Slap Fight. These waxed cans will only be available at the brewery, starting April 1.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get the beer out?
Breathe… in through nose, out the mouth. Wax on, wax off.

Does Jimmy “Sourdough” Addams have public tours of his wax mine?
Yes. Just follow the dry creek bed paralleling Peachtree Street. But watch out, there’s quicksand. Sourdough has public tours every hour on the hour, though he uses a sundial, so it usually ends up being more like MARTA time.

Who dips the cans in wax for you?
A team of Eastern Grey Squirrels, captured and trained from Inman Park.

We have a new canning line, purchased used from Cigar City via New Belgium. So while it’s not brand new, it’s new to us, and has a history of canning great beer. The challenge will be to live up to its storied past. And while we could have come out of the gate canning Eye Patch Ale or Drafty Kilt, it seemed a little too obvious. Though if we’re honest with ourselves, we also wanted to use this opportunity to show off a little bit.

After months of recipe development, including over 10 versions of the dry hop alone, we’ve landed on what we think is a winner – Slap Fight. This West Coast-style IPA is miles away from our English-style Eye Patch Ale, and in fact uses a different base malt and completely different hops. Comet, Equinox, Mosaic and Bravo hops team up to deliver a metaphorical slap to the face.

Slack for iOS Upload-9Slap Fight has a pungent herbal aroma with just the right amount of citrus. Its light malt body is the perfect canvas for the grapefruit, papaya and spice notes that shine through. And it’s only 5.8% ABV, so you can happily drink more than one.

Today is launch day. Look out for Slap Fight at your favorite watering hole or craft beer store, and let us know what you think!

 

Now that we’ve got our 5bbl pilot system up and running, we’re starting to crank out some experimental brews in small batches. We’re going to call these the Garage Series (hearkening to our days back in the garage brewing 5 gallon batches) and they will be available on draft in the tasting room only. Since we are only making a few kegs at a time, they won’t last long. We’ll do our best to highlight each beer via video here. First up? The aptly named Pump ‘N Dump, a nitro milk stout brewed with coffee and vanilla beans.
