The first Anniversary beer we’d like to announce is our latest Collab with @breweriesinpa The Philly Phantasmic! This DDH Phantasm IPA was brewed with Galaxy, Citra, and Simcoe, along with a special yeast strain to produce a tropical, juicy beer.

This will be available on draft and in 4 packs when we open on Wednesday, 11/23 at noon. We’ll be announcing the remaining 3 beers over the next 3 days, so stay tuned.

Hey Ya’ll⠀

Birthdays come but once a year but this Wednesday we’re all going to be Birthday Bois!⠀

The second anniversary beer we’d like to announce is a new Milkshake IPA, Birthday Boi. We loaded this beer up with Citra, Mosaic, Sabro, Vanilla, and a touch of lactose for a different, smooth take on one of our Hazy IPAs.⠀

When we open at noon on Wednesday 11/23 we will have Birthday Boi shirts for the first 45 people who buy a 4 pack of the namesake beer. First come first served, sizes are limited.⠀

As an added Birthday Bonus at 4pm on 11/23 we’ll be tapping a Firkin of Birthday Boi conditioned on Funfetti Cake.⠀

Clear your schedule, come celebrate, and be a Birthday Boi! 🥳🎂🎉

Big Nib Energy

The next beer that we’d like to announce was brewed before our first anniversary! Big Nib Energy is a strong ale that is a blend of Barleywine and Imperial Stout aged in a single Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrel for 22 months. Tasting this beer every few months for the last almost two years has been a wild ride. Each time we revisited the beer, new layers were developed from the slow oxidation through the oak.

When we finally removed the beer from the barrel, we selected some lovely single origin Ecuadorian cacao nibs from @etherealconfections to condition it on. The resulting beer is dense and complex, with an upfront sweetness, bourbony oak, and a raisin dark fruitiness, complimented by a slightly drying cacao flavor.

We’re very excited to share this beer with you all, and as an additional experience we have a limited number of chocolate bars from Ethereal, made from the same nibs that went into Big Nib Energy. The very dark chocolate balances amazingly with the sweetness of the beer. We will be selling bottles solo, or as a package with a bar of chocolate.

Come out on Wednesday 11/23 at noon to get your hands on some!

Without further ado we present the final 3rd Anniversary Release:⠀

Snow Bird Sour – Sour Ale with Banana, Pineapple, and Coconut⠀

It’s around that time of year that many, the so-called “Snow Birds” in our area, start migrating Southward. We brewed this beer as one last tropical fling before we’re plunged into the bitter cold of Winter, and as a reminder of warmer days.⠀

This beer as well as the 3 beers mentioned over the last few days will be available on draft and to go on Wednesday 11/23 at noon. This is a party you won’t want to miss!⠀

Thanks For Reading

Once again, I would like to thank you all for reading! Cheers to Second Sin Brewing Company for their 3rd Anniversary! We’re hoping in 2023 (or maybe even in December of 2022, who knows), that we’ll get to come out and finally visit their brewery in Bristol. They have sent us some wonderful care packages in the past including the Phantasm Menace, Kolsch, and Dragged into Sunlight that we reviewed.

Tomorrow is also Drinksgiving (or Thanksgiving Eve). What is everyone getting into? With Scarlet Emma I don’t think we’ll be getting into anything, but who knows. Then of course on Thursday is Thanksgiving and we’ll be going over to my sister’s, and then on Friday we’ll be having a family party at my parent’s. So next few days should be pretty busy.

We are planning trips to both Jackass Brewery to get to try out the Pulisic Pilsner as well as a trip out to The Alementary in Hackensack New Jersey, so we’ll be sure to write and post about that all as well.

As always, thanks for reading, and Happy Thanksgiving and Drinksgiving everyone!
