Many of you have noticed that the past two batches of our Katy beer have not been quite how you’ve remembered them - while the nose was there, the body and the flavor were a bit light.

Ordering new yeast wasn’t working for this solera method brew, ordering new barrels didn’t work and we weren’t...

Saying Hello to Some New Friends and Goodbye to an Old One

A few months ago, we brewed and released a beer named “Casual Experimentation” - an Imperial DDH New England Style IPA.

This week we would like to introduce you to the next two beers in what is going to become the “Casual Experimentation Series” - a series of fun beer styles that we’ve always...
