The new system is awesome!

The 3 bbl system is making some wonderful brews! Last week Peterson Custom Steel came and made some modifications, hopefully no Aaron will be able to brew even more beer!

The growing season has started!

I am happy to report that the first green veggies arrived today! Thanks to our farmer Josh at the Plahnt Farm! Check out his facebook page for details about his CSA.

Craft Beer Week is fast approaching!

Aaron has been working very hard to bring you special new beers for craft beer week.
Friday 5/3: Kick-off party with music from the Mad Pole Cats
Beer release – Black Scotch Ale, “One Twisted Sister”. abv 9.5%
It is dark, malty, and ever so smooth.

Saturday 5/4
Beer release – Cascadian Dunkel, “Dirty Dunkel”
This beer is great as it’s true to the cascadian region in its hop profile, and has great chocolate to pair with its banana finish.

Tuesday 5/7
Beer release – Maple APA
This is a seasonal beer that we do once a year, using about 75% local maple sap instead of water in the mash and sparge. This version is hoppy, similar to our pre-prohibition style “Old Pappy Pale Ale”.

Thursday 5/9
Beer release – Triple Chocolate Stout
This batch includes two types of chocolate malt and two pounds of Dutch cocoa. It remains true to our stout, being full-bodied, rich in dark malt flavor, and full of a not-to-sweet chocolate throughout.

Friday 5/10
Beer release – Cinnamon Brown
Aaron was trying to find a unique flavor to beer, and something that could be enjoyed year-round. He was thinking of a gram cracker (maybe he was hoping for a campfire and smores?). What resulted is a mild brown ale with a subtle cinnamon finish. This beer is unique to Hydro Street, and will expand our variety for years to come.

Saturday 5/11
Beer release – Bavarian Weiss, “Garden Party”-mug club party from 1-3pm
This weiss is light and refreshing, and is spiced with coriander and peppercorns. This beer release will be accompanied by the official opening of our beer garden for this year.

Sunday 5/12
Brunch and beers – enjoy a full selection of original craft beer paired with specialty brunch items.
Looking forward to seeing you soon,
Your Brew Goddess
