Camerlot And Nutella Stout (Nuts!)…experimental beers

By

A couple months back we installed our newest fermenter, a custom-sized tank named Peanut. We thought we were out of floor space for more tanks, and lo and behold we identified a small footprint next to the brewhouse that helped us address a pressing issue. The issue is the ever-increasing demand for new beer creations…which is […]

Belly Bongos

By

When I lived in Montana (and before I had children) there were many nights spent on decks and patios with a tapas spread, craft beer, a few bottles of wine, and incredible friends. I cherish those fond memories, and dearly miss those friends. I love Wisconsin summer, but in the wise words the Yoopers, “It’s […]

America AF

By

I thought it would be good to kick off this blog with the market description I wrote for this beer, and then break down some of the finer points.

Our Little Pokemon

By

I have slowly grown to realize that my life is a lot like a Pokemon story. I have been lucky enough to be gifted quite a special Pokemon and one day my little Mudkip will turn into a giant Swampert. I am a Pokemon trainer and no two Pokemons are alike. Each Pokemon has a […]

I Love Banana Pancakes

By

I love banana pancakes. I love to cook them (of course I have a secret recipe). I love to eat them. I love to make them for other people. I love to make Nutella sandwiches out of them. I even love the Jack Johnson song. It’s only natural that I’ve harbored the desire to brew […]

Our Tiny Little Professor

By

I found it difficult to decide how to begin this post. I decided rather than having my husband and I introduce autism in this opening paragraph, I’d instead let the autistic author of “The Reason I Jump”  Naoki Higashida do so with a few of our favorite quotes.   “When you see an object, it […]

Our Brewery Pre-Adolescence

By

This past Fall, when I first started drafting this particular blog post we had just installed our 13th and final fermenting tank.  That tank was a 40bbl tank and we treat it like a 45bbl tank when we run our lower yield pale ales through it (i.e. mostly Fantasy Factory).  In this configuration the brewery […]
