Bruxa Catharina Sour Guava

A Brazilian swing on the Berliner Weiss, but with more oomph and a decided Tropical flair

A riff on Drew's CDJK dark mild with a seasoned kick of cherrywood smoked malt from Briess to give it a whole different thing

I Dream of Jenny Cream Ale

Israel Bissell (IB) NE IPA

New Fangled New England IPA. This recipe is an amalgamation of a few recipes out on the internet - particularly Ed Coffey's HopHands Clone and Jason Faylor's NE IPA that he kindly sent us for tasting. Who's Israel Bissell? He's my ancestor who legendarily rode from Watertown MA to Philadelphia warning of the British attack. In other words - he's the guy who made Paul Revere look like a piker!

Loral Canyon Saison

A twist on Drew's classic Saison using YCHops new product "American Noble". These are the left overs from the Cryo hop process and promise American hop characters, but in a more subtle, muted fashion. Naturally, that intrigues me!

(Thanks to YCH for sponsoring the podcast and providing the debittered leaf/American nobles for this brew)

Denny's classic, huge barleywine with that American hop flair. A throwback to all those early craft barley wines with the descriptive nomen "Old"

A silky smooth and toasty malt forward mild with toffee notes and that richness of oats without a ton of hop character. Yes, if you overloaded the hopping this thing would be a light weight NE Session IPA.

Ralph Rice's Mecca Alt

Sunsphere IPA

The first place winner in the 2017 AHA National Homebrew Competition in American IPA. Chase's IPA is a bit of a hybrid with a look back at the West Coast with some "new" New England flair. This is a little different than the version discussed on the show because it's his newer version
