Asset 3

We brew with a farmhouse mentality, deriving inspiration from locally sourced ingredients. While saisons and barrel aged sours are close to our hearts, we also love to brew and drink a hop-forward pale ale or a subtly crafted lager. Nothing is off the table, as long as it pairs well with friends and family!

We strive to make our brewery a reflection of our beliefs. We source the majority of our grain and a portion of our hops in-state. Our electricity is generated by our solar panels and wind power credits. We are 100% independently owned. Every little bit helps.

I know we’ve talked it up a lot, but it’s only because we’re so excited about it: Hiprakka is finally here, and we will tap it tonight with the help of Jessica Ihms! This 7.6% Finnish Sahti took 2nd place best of show in the 2017 Ohio Brew Week homebrew competition, and won our “Brewers Choice” award. Now is the moment of truth. At 6:00, Jess will try this beer for the first time, and we’ll see how we did scaling her beer up to 85 times the original recipe size. Kippis!

Our very own taproom manager and friend, Beau Nishimura (the guy with the beard, not the fish), is 33 years old today!
I think he secretly scheduled himself behind the bar today so that ya’ll could come in and wish him a happy birthday.
Happy Birthday Beau, from all of us! 🍻🍻🍻

Our very own Cheech look-alike, Wolfgang, is gettin’ “up in smoke” today. After smoking this Ohio-grown barley on local chestnut oak, cherry, and apple woods, we will age the grain for a few weeks to mellow out. Then we shall brew batch two of “For Those About To Rauch”, our smoked altbier. The taproom should smell pretty nice tonight, as we will be drying this malt on racks on the brewery side.

It’s a little slow in the taproom today, I (Sean) left the taproom about an hour ago and when I came back, Becca had crocheted almost an entire hat! You should probably come out and have her pour you a beer. It’s happy hour til 6:00, and old time jam starts at 6:00. Cajun Clucker opens for dinner at 5:00.

2017 Brewer's Choice, Sahti with Jessica Ihms
Check out this sweet video put together by our friend Andie Walla, about our 2017 "Brewer's Choice" brew. Every year at the Ohio Brew Week homebrew competition, we pick one beer from the Best Of Show table to brew at our brewery with the homebrewer. This year's beer is a Sahti brewed by Jessica Ihms of the SNOB homebrew club. Sahti is a strong Finnish farmhouse ale brewed with rye and juniper. We brewed it with 100% Ohio grown grains from Hausmalts and juniper branches that we cut from up the road. Only non-Ohio ingredient was some organic juniper berries.

We decided to call this beer "Hiprakka", which is Finnish for that happy, glowing, and social state of buzzed-ness when you have when you are a couple of beers in. It came in at 7.6% ABV, exactly like the homebrew.

We hope to see you this Friday at 6:00 when we tap Hiprakka! Jess will be here to let us know how we did translating her recipe to a 10 barrel batch. Congratulations Jess!
