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 [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Continuing to Roll Out New Beers

It seems like every time Matt and I get the opportunity to get out of the brewery, hang out with other brewers, and stay up late drinking beers, we have the best brainstorming sessions about the future of Tombstone beers. Every time we get these chances, I always come back super excited about what we've [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Barrel Society Update

First of all, I want to give a big thank you to everyone that has signed up so far! We're off to a really good start and with the interest we've had, we're starting to get a better picture of just how big we can make this. Today we went ahead and ordered two 40' [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Upcoming Beers for March Include Kveik, Pils, Gose, Dry-Hopped Sour, and More

After a crazy month in February packed with events, bottle releases, and our taproom grand opening, I'm excited to get back to just focusing on brewing in March. In the coming month, we've got the beers that I've been most excited about brewing ever since we started brewing back in October. While we've had a [...]
