Kestrel with Mango releases on Friday, September 21, 2018

On Friday, September 21, 2018, we will release a batch of Kestrel with Mangos.

Kestrel is a Gose-style tart wheat beer brewed with a small amount of pink Himalayan sea salt and coriander seeds. After a brief souring period where we allow the acidity to develop, Kestrel is fermented with a clean ale yeast and then this batch was re-fermented on 42lbs of mango. The end result is a very tart, bright beer that exhibits subtle fruit character from the mangos. It’s a perfect beer for sipping on the porch at the end of the Kansas summer. Continue Reading

Wine Barrel Chickadee with Passionfruit releases on Friday, September 14th, 2018

On Friday, September 14th, 2018, at 1PM we will release cans of our first long-term barrel-aged sour beer.

Immediately after receiving our commercial brewing license, we brewed several batches of Chickadee and other beers that were destined to ferment and age in wine and whiskey barrels for 6-18 months. This is the first of those early barrels to be ready for release and we’re excited to share the results with you. Continue Reading

Updated Hutchinson Hours

As Summer tails off and we ramp up work on our Hutchinson and Mission taprooms, we are updating our open business hours.

Beginning August 1, our open hours will be:

  • Friday, 1PM to 6PM
  • Saturday, 10AM to 5PM

We do not anticipate our hours changing again until the taprooms are complete and ready to open. When that time comes, we’ll make further announcements to help everyone know when you’re able to come have a beer with us.

We’re opening a nano-brewery and taproom in Mission Kansas

Since day one of our brewery planning, Pippin and I have planned on building two breweries; one in Hutchinson where he lives, and one in the Kansas City area, where I live. I’m happy to say that it’s finally happening!

As of July 1st, 2018 we have taken possession of a location at 5612 Johnson Drive, Mission, KS. Right in the heart of downtown Mission!

This second location will operate as a nano brewery and taproom, providing us an outlet for bringing our beer to the Kansas City market while also giving me the opportunity to do what I love: designing and tweaking new beers that are complex, easy-drinking, and locally made.

Our aim is to create a family friendly environment for community gathering. Our hours and aesthetic will reflect this, focusing on a clean and cozy space that encourages conversation amongst friends and strangers alike.

As a small space, Mission will be our testing ground and predominantly offer draft-only beer. However, we will also bring in our specialty, barrel-aged beers from Hutchinson for enjoyment on-site and available to go from time to time.

Over the next three to six months we will be completely renovating the space, building the brewery, and designing the experience. Permitting and buildout dependent, our aim is to open the doors by the end of 2018.

Stay tuned for more news as we have it!

 

Cheers,
Jonathan

Peach Chickadee: Wine Barrel-aged Berliner Weisse with Peaches

A new variation of our Berliner-style  Weisse, Chickadee is being released in 4-packs of 16oz cans on Friday, June 29th!

Several months ago we brewed Chickadee and then fermented it directly in aa oak wine barrel. We then let it mature slowly in oak, developing a soft and bright acidity that’s more complex than a typical quick-sour fermentation.

After a few months we racked the beer out of oak and onto peach purée from Oregon Fruit Products.

The resulting beer is luscious, with loads of peach aroma and flavor that pairs perfectly with the tartness of the base beer.

Peach Chickadee is being released in 4-packs for $16 each. No growler fills this time. A handful of 4-packs have also been set aside for Can Reservations.

Chickadee: Wine Barrel Berliner, Dry-hopped w/ Wakatu – available today, June 6th, 2018

As a small brewery, we have the opportunity (and pleasure) to experiment a lot. Over the next year, we aim to release a wide gamut of different beers, in particular variations of our core lineup.

The first of these variations releases today and on through the weekend!

We took Chickadee, our beloved Berliner-style Weisse sour wheat beer and fermented it in an oak wine barrel for two months. Once the beer was ready we racked it to a stainless steel fermenter and dry-hopped it with Wakatu, a New Zealand hop that’s known for it’s floral and fruity characters.

This wine barrel Chickadee is available to-go today for growler fills and 4-packs of 16oz cans. The price is $16 per 4-pack, plus taxes.

We have also set aside ten 4-packs for can reservations! Can reservations are a great way for you to get ahold of our beer when you live outside of Hutchinson.
