They teased in beer on Instagram for later today. No word on what it is yet, though.
That beer sounds great. I'm assuming the limited quantities means no distro. I might have to take a ride there on Saturday after D96 Oktoberfest.
It was definitely different. They are nailing the Brut IPA dryness, but I'm still lukewarm on the style. Certainly didn't drink like a DIPA.
This beer came out great!
I have only had Brutt IPAs from Magnify and IAs
Compared to Magnify IAs approaches a Brutt DIPA from a much more refined and more minimalist approach.
As for the adjunct, They nailed the whole Cotton Candy Grapes thing, awesome stuff!
IA has been quiet on the new beer front. I need some Torque Wrench or Wrench in my fridge ASAP but haven't seen it locally in a while.
Don’t think that will be too much of an issue going forward
I stopped at the brewery on my way home yesterday. Cool little space. They had cans of Wrench, Splice, Metric and the harvest lager. Tried the harvest lager and Bloomerang. The lager was great; wasn’t fond of Bloomerang at all (had this a bit of acidity on the forefront which I dont think was intentional). Latest batch of Wrench was canned on 10/16.
Craft 303 had a couple of 4-packs of Torque Wrench on the shelf yesterday, but they are probably 3 weeks old or so at this point. I don't know if it falls off that quickly or not, but it's there.
I picked up the Splice, myself, which is a pretty nice hoppy sour- definitely has a twang to it, that's for sure.
I drank a can of Autumn Landscapes straight from the can the other night and I was extremely impressed. I wish I had bought more than 2, I might get more but I haven’t seen it around my parts. I got it in Brooklyn. Great freakin beer.
I’d say TW with 3 weeks on it sounds just about perfect.
One of my beers of the year so far! I'm still seeing it on this side of the Hudson, too, so if you're ever out this way let me know.
Cool. Thanks as always Michael.
Yea I got a 4 pck at the brewery yesterday after having a pour and was very impressed. Great lager.
Did you know studies show that Olympic athletes that win the bronze medal are significantly happier than those that win silver⁉️Speaking of which, Thursday we releaseBRONZE MEDALa hoppy lager we brewed with our dear friends from Santa Fe Brewing Co. It was made with Bohemian malts, Styrian Wolf, Michigan-grown Zuuper Saazer and freshly kilned Cascade flowers from Washington. Bold, balanced and badass. ️♀️ 5.8% ABV and draught only!!
Looks like I picked a good time to visit for the first time. See you Saturday
Does anyone know if they would sell crowlers of something like this?
I think so. I don't see why not.
Pretty cool to see Santa Fe Brewing Company making the rounds out east (collab with Interboro sounds great). They're not the best NM brewery but maybe these collaborations will help them hone their product and maybe some east coast breweries will visit New Mexico for some collaborations out there.
I'm so overdue for an IA visit.
But in other news, Wrench has become the staple in my fridge. It's my La Cumbre Elevated of the East Coast.
Crowlers weren't a problem- I picked up a few yesterday. The beer is pretty much like a hefty "Americanized" Vienna, and very well made. I posted some thoughts on New Beer Sunday (Week 716)
ETA- My recollection of Santa Fe Brewing goes back a while; I was there and Albuquerque in the mid 90s, and the beers were surely nice to have back then. The Pale Ale and Porter were clearly from the Sierra Nevada/Deschutes mold. Is that the niche that they're still trying to fill these days?
