Big Hugs, the imperial stout that we've been working on is officially tapped in our brewery store. I have to say that we're really pumped about this beer. We took an interesting approach to making it and collaborated with Dark Matter Coffee to do a very low volume coffee extraction that was added. The result isn't a total coffee beer, but a 9.5% brut of a stout with with fully flexed flavor that rounds out the spectrum nicely. Stop by and grab a growler to take home and enjoy.
Growler fills are $17
22oz bottles will be available after Christmas for $10.99
(We have loads of new, actual growlers in stock)
Tues - Fri 12-8
Sat 11 - 7
Sun 12 - 5
We have a Half Acre Hunt scheduled for today, but we're not sure if we're going to be able to make it out there to hide the capsule. We'll post a clue if we can swing it, otherwise come by and grab some of this stout before it's all gone.
Note -- this stout will only be around for a couple weeks so act fast to gulp down this liquid coal.
We want to congratulate all those on the Half Acre Cycling team for another great year of racing. We've been fortunate enough to collaborate with a great group of folks who enjoy racing bikes since we started Half Acre. We've been coming up together, so here's to another great year of racing bikes and making beer.
December is running off quickly so it's time that we discuss some of the goings on.
1. The brewery store / tasting area will be closed both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, all other days (including New Year's Eve) we'll be open as scheduled:
Tuesday - Friday 12pm - 8pm
Saturday 11am - 7pm
Sunday 12pm - 5pm
The 18th (tentatively) will be the first night that we're tasting out Big Hugs. Growlers will be available at that time. Hugs will come alive in numerous forms to be announced. We're pushing for 4 versions. 22oz bottles will be available of the coffee version in collaboration with Dark Matter Coffee the following week or two.
We'll also be at West Lakeview Liquors on the 18th sampling out beers.
The Half Acre hunt will next be held that same day - on the 18th of December. The winner gets themselves some gratis Big Hugs to warm them this holiday season.
We brewed 10 different beers so far this year. Something we feel good about. And we have at least one more coming. To round things out and finish this year with a punch, we’ve brewed the first of two fifteen BBL batches of an Imperial Stout we’re calling Big Hugs. This will be a 9.5% thug of a stout that boasts a ton of raw flavors that you can experience for yourself. We’re just about to crash the first batch, so you can expect to see this beer on tap and in 22oz bombers at select establishments around town and at our brewery store before the holiday. Scheduled to be released on 12/18...
In other holiday cheer, we have a lot more Beer Soap and gift certificates (by Friday) available at the store. Come get your loved ones the gift of cleanliness and beer.
