Time to Recharge

Time to Recharge

Our annual vernal equinox release drops this week! Plus, taproom happenings!

A Message from the Brewer

The return of the sun in Alaska marks the return of one of my personal favorite perennials: Solar Recharger. This double hazy IPA has undergone tweaks and alterations over the years, with one constant: Motueka, a New Zealand hop that packs some Lime Zest and Tutti Frutti aromas. Last year, we may have found the perfect companion: Eclipse, an Australian hop that boasts notes of Mandarin Orange aromas. We decided to keep the hops the same this go-around and to alter the malt base to include two-row, malted wheat and malted oats. The result is a rich orange color that supports the wonderful array of citrus and fruit characteristics of the hops. We also fermented this year's batch with a blend of Fermentis S-04 and Lallemand American East Coast English yeast strains, which accent the citrus and fruit characteristics of the hops.

Cheers to the return of the sun and Solar Recharger!

Carey Fristoe, Head Brewer

Coming Soon

Our second collaboration with our Fairbanks neighbors to the east will be dropping soon! At Dawn, We Ride Black IPA, a collaboration with Lat 65 Brewing Company, is dark and aromatic, eliciting notes of chocolate-covered orange and a satisfying bitterness.
