Brewer’s Blog: Not Really a Barleywine, Beer Guy, Bright and Juicy, Pale Lager

It's been a fun week at the brewery! After releasing a new IPA over the weekend, we brewed three entirely new beers that we're excited to share soon. First up, we have "Not Really a Barleywine." As anyone who has followed Tombstone from the beginning knows, lighthearted trolling is right up our alley. In the [...]

Brewer’s Blog: “All the Hops” Series

For the last couple of months, we've been brewing a lot of single hop IPA's. This has been a way of showing off the quality of our selected hop contracts. Anyone that's been following us for the last couple years knows that raw material quality is something that we take very seriously and these hops [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Reiterated Mash Imperial Stout

Yesterday, we canned the biggest beer (15.5% ABV) I've brewed in almost 10 years and with all of our social media posts, I've been getting a bunch of questions about it. I realized today that I never did a blog post about it and with a beer like this, it doesn't do it justice to [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Wet Hops, Fresh Hops, And Turning Disappointment Into Excitement

Normally these blog posts result from hours of thought about something that I want to share with the world and they serve as a way for me to get something off of my mind. Today though, I haven't had much time to think about this post as it's been hectic at the brewery all day [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Lagers for Today’s Craft Beer Enthusiasts

It seems like for the last three or four years, during almost every discussion panel, podcast, interview, etc. I've participated in, the question "What is the next trend in craft beers?" has been asked. So frequently, the answer I hear is "Lagers." However, during that same 3-4 year span, lagers haven't really taken off. With [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Let’s Get Funky!

I think that every serious craft beer drinker gets to a point when they feel a lull in their drinking experiences and nothing seems to wow them anymore. Nothing seems hoppy enough, every hyped bourbon barrel stout just tastes boozy and muddled, and every exciting sour beer just tastes like the brewery dumped acetic acid [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Imperial Stout and Giving the Customers What they Want

Ever since we opened, I've been telling people that even though we brew so many IPA's, I hate the idea of being thought of as an IPA only brewery. It seems like lately we've been just cranking out the hazy IPA's and it has definitely been fun experimenting with different flavors we can get, but [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Two New IPAs; Same Hops, Different Yeast

What a busy couple of months it has been. Unfortunately, I have not had time to write many blog posts and when I have had time, I felt like I didn't really have anything to say. At this point, I feel like most people that follow my blogs have read about my brewing philosophies for [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Citra IPA and Hoppy Pale Wheat Ale

It seems kind of crazy to me to think that we have brewed so many single hop beers at TBC, yet until yesterday, we hadn't released a single hop Citra beer even though Citra is the hop variety that we use the most. The reason we were decided to do it now was because we [...]

Brewer’s Blog: On Deck – Amber Ale

It seems that every time I sit down to write a blog post, I know pretty much what I want to say. However, I never know how to introduce it. I never claimed to be a writer... I'm just here to make beer and tell people about it, so for this one I'm just going [...]
