We at Half Acre are fans of the band Ween. There's a slew of reasons this band holds a special place at the brewery, but I think the main thing is their outlandish approach to making music.
Ween also holds the hearts of some other brewers, the good folks at Short's Brewing Co and Jonathan Cutler from Piece. Ween is also playing the Aragon Ballroom tomorrow night (need tickets?). What does all this spell? Ween collaboration beer.
Today we're hosting Joe Short of Short's Brewing and Jonathan Cutler from Piece for a day of brewing a beer we're calling "Freedom Of '78." The style is a Guava India Pale Ale, brewed with 1000 lbs of actual guava fruit. We're aiming for an IPA that's kind of outlandish, much like the inspiration.
In honor of brewing this beer, being able to brew beers with friends and going to the Ween show tomorrow night - we're offering a 15% discount on all Half Acre beers at our brewery to anyone with a ticket to the Ween Show tomorrow night. You must have proof that you're going to the show - valid until we close tomorrow night.
You'll see this beer in two / three weeks. In the meantime, open your heads up and pour a little of the Ween bizarre into your mind.
