Brewer’s Blog: Beer for Connoisseurs, Dreher’s Original, Historical Lager Mini-Series

In the past couple weeks we've had to make a few changes to our production schedule due to unforeseen circumstances. Fortunately, our schedule has been only slightly impacted and the biggest change from our plan actually resulted in something that I'm pretty excited about anyways. For almost a year now, I've been joking that Tombstone [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Annual Hop Report and Upcoming Wet Hop Beers

What a week it has been! I brewed my first wet hop beers 6 years ago and ever since then, September has been a roller coaster of emotions alternating between excitement and dread. The actual brew day for wet hop beers is intense and a logistical nightmare, but the reward is so worth the extra [...]

Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stouts!

Weedy already announced that we'll be releasing bottles of 5 different barrel-aged variants of our Russian Imperial Stout on the 31st of this month, but it's a big enough deal that it definitely merits its own post. Plus, today we got to sample the beers as we racked them out of the barrels where they've lived [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Where da’ Cans At?!? The hectic time of year

I guess when you get predictable, any deviation from the predictable behavior is immediately noticeable. In this case, my inbox has been flooded with questions about when our next can release would be since  it’s been a few weeks and we’ve been a bit quiet during that time. The date for the next can release [...]

Fresh Lagers!

There are few beers that make us more excited than our lagers. That makes today especially exciting, as we just canned two of them. Of the lagers we've made, one of our favorites - and certainly the one we've brewed the most - is our German Pils. It's as pale a beer as we can [...]

Brewer’s Blog: What’s Brewing

As I was brewing last week, it struck me that we were brewing a kind of “Greatest Hits” lineup. We’ve got our original IPA, Dank Fruit Double, and All the Hops Triple IPA in the fermenters now. Every time we brew IPA, it’s like greeting an old friend that you haven’t seen in a long [...]

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 [...]

Second Anniversary Beers!

We turn two years old tomorrow! To celebrate, we're engaging in a bit of self-indulgence. We love hazy IPAs as much as anyone, but we're also in many instances even more excited about some of the truly unique beers we've produced over the past two years. We're canning two of our favorites tomorrow. Here's the [...]
