Yesterday, we were thrilled to announce two new year-round rotating-hop IPA series: Quadrahopic and Concentrate and today we’re excited to lay out our roadmap for 2019. Like any good roadtrip, there will be some deviation from our plotted course, some unplanned stops along the way, and plenty of surprises. So scout out the year ahead, amd mark your calendar for the return of your seasonal favorites, or old standbys. Cheers to another year of beer here in Franklinton.

Concentrate, Now Delivering Hoppy Goodness Year-Round

In opart 2 of our Double-Dose of year-round IPA Press Releases today, we’re jazzed tio to introduce our first year-round series of Hazy IPAs: Concentrate. The name is inspired by the beer’s utilization of Cryo-Hops—essentially concentrated hop oils—to achieve super juicy and intense hop flavor and aroma without overwhelming bitterness.

“Concentrate IPA is aptly named, packing a concentrated juicy hop punch, compliments of the use of the Cryo-Hops,” says Director of Operations, Mark Richards. “I am a longtime hophead and this became one of my favorite new beers of 2018. I am pumped to see how the brewers will riff on the style from quarter to quarter in 2019!”

“Concentrate is the sum of our knowledge about creating big hop flavor in an easily drinkable package,” says Lead Brewer, Dan Shaffer. “Cryo-Hops allow us to maximize juicy hop flavor without the harsh burn of other highly hopped beers.”

Each quarterly edition of Concentrate will feature a new can label design, featuring Warhol-inspired cans in varying colors, highlighting the flavor and seasonality of the beers.

“The name Concentrate took me back to coming home on a summer day and having Mom peel open a can of Orange Juice concentrate for instant refreshment,” says Creative Director, Walt Keys. “That nostalgia played nicely with the Warhol-inspired can motif and, much like Quadrahopic, its seasonality gives me reign to play with the colors and the feel of each release.”

Concentrate IPA will retail for $11.99 per six-pack, and will be available in package and on draft beginning the first week in February 2019.

Introducing Quadrahopic, Year Round Rotating IPA

We are excited to announce that we’ll kicking-off 2019 with a brand new rotating hop IPA series. Quadrahopic, an IPA brewed using a blend of four hop varietals, is poised to join the brewery’s year-round offerings, albeit with a quarterly twist: every 3 months, the hops change.

“Quadrahopic IPA is a showcase of 4 hops varieties that will rotate hop blends with the seasons in 2019,” says Director of Operations, Mark Richards. “It’s always interesting to see how the hops flavors play off one another to create a compelling blend of flavor and aroma in these approachable IPAs.”

Lead Brewer, Dan Shaffer shares Mark’s excitement for the new line, saying,: “Quadrahopic is the canvas for our hop palette; with some combination of new varieties, personal favs, and old classics, creating flavor and aroma that is greater than the sum of its parts.”

While the malt base of the beer remains the same, the hops aren’t the only thing that will change from season to season. Each edition of Quadrahopic will feature a new can label design with varying colors to highlight the intended flavor profile.

“For me, the introduction of this new series, along with its ‘sister’ series, Concentrate, let me have some fun and think outside of the design systems we’ve created here over the past four years,” says Creative Director, Walt Keys. “I looked at this new brand as a way to create something new that lives outside our seasonal and year-round brands, but still under the umbrella of what makes a ‘Land-Grant Beer’ look like a ‘Land-Grant Beer.'”

Quadrahopic IPA will retail for $9.99 per six-pack, and will be available in package and on draft beginning the first week in January 2019.

New Brew: Kin

This is Nik’s beer—a Kölsch-style Golden Ale, brewed with Agave Nectar, Tropical Hops and Nik in mind. Beer builds community, and we were honored to have Nik at the center of ours.

Proceeds from this beer benefit the Dick & Jane Project.
