    Cascade, Centennial, and dry hopped in the barrel with a bit of Amarillo.

    HolyMtn The release for 3rd Nail is Thursday at 3 correct? I'll definitely be there regardless but what are the bottle limits? Also, when should we see more bottled offerings from you guys?

    Also, any thoughts on doing a small, local Reserve Society sort of thing (like De Garde) or just local unannounced releases for those that stop in often? I'm looking forward to once you start bottling your single barrel offerings we previously spoke about like the Upright Sole Comp series...if that is still part of future plan?

    Yep, on track for the Third Nail release.

    We have stuff in bottles right now. No plans for a club right now, but we'll look at that more closely down the road when things start to come out of barrels more frequently. We do have plans for tap room only releases, so keep your eyes and ears open...

    HolyMtn Do you have any plans to bottle your grisette?

    The Arrow should be a staple. That beer is awesome. Only 3.5% but so much flavor.

    And it becomes more sour as it warms up. Fantastic beer.

    Yes, we hope to bottle some in the future. We almost bottled the first version but opted for draught instead.

    paysse Currently sitting on a bottle of the goat from the first mini release. How different are the brett profiles between that and the upcoming wider release? Did they get bottled at the same time and one came to maturation quicker or did you bottle the first small run earlier? Partially asking because I am trying to decide if I should go ahead and drink my current bottle now or if it would be a fun thing to taste it and the upcoming release at the same time to compare the two.

    The brett profiles of the two are pretty different. I get a lot more funk on the limited/kraft label bottle release - blue cheese, hay, etc. The new release is fruitier - grape aspects in the white wine vein, pear, etc. People who have had both have preferred the new release unanimously, but I really like the funk of the other bottles too. They were bottled separately, those silent Goat and Ox releases were actually test bottling to dial in carbonation levels, but we had 5 cases of each just sitting around and we didn't want them to go to waste. The full release of The Goat was bottled in mid February, I think the test was maybe 2-3 weeks earlier. Tasting them side by side might be a lot of fun, I don't know that even we did that. Definitely an awesome example of how bottle conditioning with brett has a dramatic impact on the final flavor profile.

    Hey paysse I just wanted to give you and Colin props on Barrel Aged River of Ash. That beer is seriously awesome. The mix of wine and bourbon barrels gave it some rad aromas. Might have replaced Watchmens House as my favorite HM beer. Thanks for doing what you do!

    If you don't mind me asking, what did the grain bill look like? Seriously delicious stuff.

    I was hoping the brewery was named after the 1973 Alejandro Jodorowsky film of the same name.

    Me too. I straight out assumed it was. Lost count of the amount of references I've seen here and there to that movie.

    What is the likelihood your colab with Monkish is a pilsner? HolyMtn

    We brewed two beers when we were down in LA last week....not pilsners though. We've got some pretty awesome lagers coming out over the next few months, including a collaboration that's happening soon we're very excited about.

    Are you guys gonna have kegs of the Beta IPA test batches for this year’s 3-Way? Noticed it’s been on at Ft George and Modern Times PDX lately.
