When you need to get away from It All, it's time to get there fast, and take it slow. This citrus-tastically sweet IPA is brewed with Amarillo, Motueka, and Citra hops to highlight the addition of Key Lime. Vanilla and Lactose give the beer a creamy milkshake-esque sipping experience. Join Adam, Walt, Justin, and Mark this week in the island of our mind as we sip this super limited tropical treat!
Justin, Walt and Mark discuss our annual Space-Grant series Black IPA, featuring Chinook, Simcoe, Azacca hops. Brewed with bold Crimson Cup Kossa Kebena and Antiqua Finca el Cadejo Coffee it is a deep-space black IPA that blasts off seeking new Tropical horizons. 2021 marks both 60 years of manned space flight, and the 40th anniversary of NASA's first space shuttle launch which took flight on April 12th, 1981. The groundbreaking shuttle program ran for 50 years until 2011, and ten years later we are poised to continue that legacy of discovery. This year, NASA continues our drive for exploration and with the planned launch of Artemis 1. The launch, scheduled for this November, will be the first step in our planned return to the moon in 2024.
Like birds of a feather, you'll always find Columbus and Mosaic hops a flight upon the aromatic winds of dank citrus and resinous tropical fruit. These airborne companions blow in a foggy, hazy cloud of huge flavor and juicy vibes throughout the Capital City!
This week Justin, Dan, Walt and Mark get a chance to sample Capital Companions Columbus-Mosaic Hazy IPA and describe the delights of our two barrel-aged offerings, Spirited Acquaintances Bourbon Barrel-Aged Ale, a collaboration with Middle West Spirits and Uisce Beatha Irish Whiskey Barrel-Aged Imperial Coffee Stout with Lactose and Stauf’s coffee. This episode is jam packed with flavor!

Welcome all! It's a Festivus, for the rest of us! This week Mark, Dan, Adam, and Walt celebrate Festivus by testing the crush-ability of our latest IPA, Lifty. Winter is here and it may seem like a long way up that mountain...but we're gonna let you in on a little shortcut: Lifty is a comfy-cozy blast of Southern Hemisphere sunshine, a rejuvenating citrus-powered ride above the weather brought to you by Waimea, Wakatu, and Rakau hops. Along the way, you'll enjoy wide vistas of orange marmalade, candied lime peel, and apricot jam.
