From the In Your Guts blog, right from the mouth of Gabriel (not the biblical angel, the brewer/founder of Half Acre Brewing Co.):
1. Long Thai Rainbow Rye
This all draft beer, which will be mostly available at the brewery, but will pop up in some of our favorite beer bars, is a Saison brewed with Long Thai peppercorns and Rye malt.
2. Bairn Farmhouse
Bairn will be available in both bombers and draft at the brewery, plus some jaunts around town. This beer is an ode to all things Phil. Our friend, coworker and brewing confidant, Phil Wymore, has been busy having a child and gearing up to start his own brewery in St. Louis. This beer is a nod to his beautiful little girl, Lily -- probably the most sincere and "nice" label you see come out of Half Acre. So, as Phil departs from Half Acre he's leaving us and you with this Saison brewed with lemon and chamomile.
3. Sticky Fat American Dark Ale
Last and certainly not least, we're brewing a hop harvest beer. This morning a farmer we work with in northern CA picked organic hops fresh from his field and put them on a plane to us to arrive tomorrow morning. We're going to take these sticky cones and brew a wet hop beer tomorrow afternoon. This is our first wet hop beer and one we've looked forward to. You can expect a hop forward dark ale that pays homage to the lore of Sticky Fat.
