6) Cucumber Sour Weisse

Sour Weisse is touched by lactobacillus through a traditional souring process where we let this naturally occurring bacteria – found on all barley – have free reign of the wort in the kettle overnight before we boil it and ferment with our house yeast. It’s like a lactobacillus playground (until we kill them during the boiling process). This all-natural process lowers the pH of the wort giving it a pleasant tartness.

Lowercase Brewing

1) iPA

A balanced IPA for IPA lovers and doubters alike. Not intended to be a palette wrecker, we opted for a more subtle approach to this beer. The rye malt to provides a slightly spicy (warm), dry backbone and then we hop it up with the combination of Mount Hood and Centennial hops until we have jasmine-like aroma and taste – all while keeping the overall bitterness in check. (6.3% ABV/ 78 IBU)

2) eSB

An English creation with a state-side twist

Our English-style ESB combines a Marris Otter base, creating medium body with extraordinary hop undertones.

More complex but extremely drinkable. (5.2% ABV/ 50 IBU)

Wizard Walk is an herb-infused Belgian Saison. It’s made with honey and infused with woodruff, mugwort and rose hips. The Saison Yeast gives this complicated brew a distinctly fruity, apple aroma. Although it tastes sweet going down, it finishes dry with a light but complex bitterness supplied by the herbs and noble hops. The rose hips add a very subtle tartness and rosy tint to this gold-colored ale that must be tasted to be fully understood. (6.7% ABV/ 18 IBU)

Postdoc Brewing

Our first run IPA, this beer is stuffed full of hops, just the way we like it. Alpha factor is a yeast mating pheromone, and without yeast, we wouldn’t have beer!

2) Dissertation Double IPA

Dissertation is a double-dry-hopped Double IPA with an intense amount of Galaxy, Mosaic, Citra, and Simcoe. It pours a vibrant gold with generous aromas of juicy passionfruit, ripe mango, earthy pine, and bright citrus. Although Dissertation is quite

strong and showcases an enormous amount of hop character, it remains smooth and drinkable with a clean finish and pleasant bitterness. (9% ABV/ 88 IBU)

3) Blondilocks
