                More details on Drew’s Brews:

                Husked Away- A riff on a Mexican lager with a twist! We infused the brewing water with toasted corn husks that contribute a faint green tea character without the astringency. We then used the corn husk foundation water to mash in with flaked maize, Munich, and Vienna malts, then added black limes at the end of the boil to create an oddly familiar drinking mate that you can’t quite put your finger on…yet. With six weeks in a medium-plus toast foeder, the oak pops off in between wisps of limeade and spice forward hops.

                Fine- We’ll make some hoppy jazz. This hoppy wheat lager received a healthy dusting of Citra and Ekuanot hops, with another blast of Simcoe lupulin powder. Then we did it again because that’s how we roll occasionally. Fine spent five weeks in a medium toast foeder before moving to stainless for a final dry hop prior to packaging.

                  Sit, Relax, Listen, Enjoy!
