North Carolina Collaboration Beer on Tap Thursday!

NC Gose West, a NC collaboration beer, goes on tap at Gizmo’s taproom this Thursday!  On tap for a limited time.  Proceeds benefit the NC Craft Brewers Guild.

More than twenty professional brewers from around the state joined forces to brew this special one-time release at Mystery Brewing Co. in Hillsborough August 23-24, 2014, and many of those participants will tap a keg for the statewide release this Thursday, October 16.

The beer was made using ingredients sourced exclusively from within the state. This marks the first time that NCCBG members have brewed a collective guild recipe together. The style of beer is Gose, a slightly sour wheat beer with a hint of salt, which is gaining in popularity among craft beer drinkers.

Ingredients for the beer were sourced exclusively from North Carolina and include:
· Barley and wheat from Riverbend Malt House in Asheville
· Outer Banks Sea Salt from Southern Shores
· Muscadine grapes from Lu Mil Vineyard in Dublin
· Fresh Wet Hops from: Farm Boy Farms, Pittsboro; Piedmont Hops, Chapel Hill; Three Horses Hops, Chapel Hill

Ring Dog IPA

logo_ring_dogring dog on tapTry the latest in our line of small batch IPAs – Ring Dog IPA. This IPA is not for the weak of heart. It’s a big, bold, in-your-face HOP EXPLOSION. Ring Dog features Santiam hops, a cross between 1/3 German Tettnanger, 1/3 Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, and 1/3 tetrapoild USDA Male. Santiam stays true to its German heritage by exhibiting a lingering spice – not heat, just spice. As Santiam was cultivated in Corvallis, Oregon, we decided to name this IPA after the logging industry. A “ring dog” is a hook attached to a wooden handle that is used to roll logs.

The additions of Cascade and Horizon hops give the beer a bit of a citrus kick, and the Simcoe pushes the pine. You’ll taste plenty of hops but not an overwhelming bitterness. Enjoy the flavor punch without puckering up. I do mean punch – Ring Dog registers 7.3% ABV.

Malt: 2-Row, Crystal-20
Hops: Santiam, Cascade, Horizon, Simcoe
ABV: 7.3%
IBU: ???
SRM: 8

Malt: Pilsen, Maris Otter, Carapils
Hops:  Falconer’s Flight 7C’s
ABV: 5.4%
SRM: 3
IBU: 37
