Brewer’s Blog: TBC Adopts Low Oxygen Brewing Techniques, Upcoming Beers

As I sit down to type up this post, it strikes me that this is a pretty comical way of eating my words. Not only am I excited about using new techniques that I had written off and even mocked a little bit, but I'm also announcing the release of a style that I've called [...]

Our Canning Line Arrived!

Although we'd arranged for the canning line to be delivered at 8:00 a.m. this morning, I showed up fifteen minutes early to an angry trucker who'd been waiting for me for quite some time, apparently. Weedy pulled up a few minutes later, and when the driver opened the back of the trailer, here's what we [...]
