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.

Junco and Tequila barrel Gose Cans Reservations Available

Starting on Friday, May 25th we will have cans of Junco and a Tequila Barrel Gose for to-go at the brewery!

Junco is our New England IPA, which is bright and tropical IPA with a soft and smooth mouthfeel. Per the style, it emphasizes the tropical fruit character of the hops rather than bitterness.

Previously Junco was only available in mixed four-packs but batch two will be sold in four-packs.

The Tequila Barrel Gose is our first oak-fermented beer to be released. A Gose is a sour, wheat beer brewed with Coriander and sea salt. This beer was brewed on March 23rd, 2018 and was fermented directly in a fresh Tequila barrel, where it sat for the next month and a half before packaging.

A limited quantity of both beers are available, starting today, for can reservations online. Simply visit the following page to reserve four-packs. Reservations are limited to one per beer per customer.

Reserve your four packs of Junco and Tequila Barrel Gose:

The reservation pickup deadline for Junco and Tequila Barrel Gose is June 23rd, 2018.

P.S. we also still have a few cans of Sparrow, Barred Owl, and Chickadee available for purchase at the brewery. 

Our first Can Release is April 28th! Reserve your cans now

The last few weeks have been a busy time for our little brewery! After getting licensed in late February we have steadily been filling oak barrels with mixed-fermentation sour beers, brewing year-round beers, stocking up equipment, and fulfilling first keg orders.

We have also been testing out a small canning system that enables us to package 16oz cans of our year-round beers. It’s small and only does one can at a time but it helps us get beer into your hands sooner and in better packaging than growlers or bottles. Continue Reading

Glassware now available for purchase

We are getting closer and closer to selling beer! Today we’re happy to announce that our Sandhills Brewing glassware arrived and is now ready for purchase.

Aside from just being a superb vessel from which to drink great beer, the purchase of Sandhills Brewing glasses helps us further fund our oak-barrel program. Continue Reading

Barrels are stacking up, giving oak the focus!

From the beginning Pippin and I’s plans have been for Sandhills to be heavily focused on oak aging and mixed-fermentation. With the brewing industry growing quickly we’re more interested than ever in focusing on our niche.

For us this means filling oak barrels, and a lot of them. Due to the nature of mixed-culture fermentation many of the beers that we like to make take upwards of 6-12 months. There is not set time table, the beer is ready when it says it’s ready.
