Join us this weekend and let your P1R4T3 FL4G fly!

P1R4T3 FL4G is a brand new, twice dry hopped India Pale Ale joining our growing rotation of IPAs that scream balance, but dabble in the trends of juicy and hazy.

Sure, we've made 3 beers with weird ingredients in two and a half years, out of 167 brew days, but most of the time, we let the malt, yeast, and hops do the talking.

P1R4T3 FL4G is a whole new drinking experience from our crazy team.

Utilizing our relatively soft water, we threw in some acidulated malt, effectively lowering the pH of our brewing water to present a more tangy final product in the wort, with an otherwise tan canvas of pale and pilsner malts, along with some oats and crystal.

Hops were added exclusively below boiling temperature in the whirlpool, but in a ridiculous weights, to provide measuring bitterness along with that juice you crave.

We threw in more than a handful of Citra and El Dorado hops here, but went extra heavy on 2017 Nugget hops sourced from Upstate New York, for a flavor profile that is rich in citrus, tang, and resinous, like biting in to an orange.

These hops gave the beer a rich orange zest aroma, but we weren't satisfied there. We threw in a mixture of Nugget and El Dorado hops to play up the dank tangerine and canteloupe vibes, then after a few days, dropped the temperature a bit further and threw in a ridiculous amount of Cascade hops, playing up the spice and citrus.

The beer then sat on these dry hops for an entire week before cold crashing, and she is now ready to fly!

We've also reserved a small amount of Island Gurl cans for this weekend (yes, we lied, it wasn't sold out this weekend) so you can trade it all in for a P1R4T3 FL4G and an Island Gurl!

Yes... we're Chesney fans...
