Join us with special guest Aryn Hervel as she leads us into the wonderful world of environmental detection and sewage talk. I promise its actually a lot more interesting than you think! 

Aryn is Drinking:
Jack's Ginn #3 Melon & Mint, Prohibition Spirits
A unique gin made with cantaloupe and mint to suit all of your gin & tonic needs. ​40%ABV

Rebecca is Drinking:
Shploing!! Mango S'mores, Omnipollo
IPA brewed with marshmallows, graham crackers, salt and lactose sugar with mangos and vanilla added - Mango S'mores.
Fatamorgana, Omnipollo
Drawing inspiration from the fidelity of a saison — rustic, alluringly cloudy and crisp — this imperial IPA was brewed using oats and wheat. Dry-hopped twice and completely untouched post fermentation to preserve aroma and flavor.


Sarah is Drinking:
CitrusSinensis Pale Ale, Lagunitas Brewing
The man bent over his guitar, a shearsman of sorts. The day was green. They said, 'You have a blue guitar, you do not play things as they are.' The man replied, 'Things as they are / Are changed upon the blue guitar.' And they said then, 'But play, you must, a tune beyond us, yet ourselves, a tune upon the blue guitar of things exactly as they are.' He sighs, I cannot bring a world quite round, although I patch it as I can. I sing a hero's head, large eye and bearded bronze, but not a man, although I patch him as I can and reach through him almost to man. If to serenade almost to man is to miss, by that, things as they are, say it is the serenade of a man that plays a blue guitar..." These, the words of the Conjurer-in-Chief; Wallace Stevens, describe in perfect detail the work of a brewer as he sits to write a new recipe. Perfection is the goal, to fill a desire for a perfect beer. Yet the instrument of his mind and that of the brewhouse and yeast are the fallible tools at hand. And so he patches it as he can. A little hop here, a little citrus there, a yeast to marry the two, the worty substrate of reality calling the key and time signature. The beer that comes will be the beer we drink, the beer whose story we will tell here. The brewer does what he can and imagines a world quite round. Conjurer-in-Chief Stevens concludes; "Exceeding music must take the place of empty heaven and its hymns." What does it all have to do with beer?

We had nearly three weeks off. Dude, we're are all melting internally like a little. I don't need HOTD... you need HOTD... I am not crying, you're crying. Shut up! 

Lani went on a homecoming, Rebecca had an emotional meltdown and one of those... like, epic movie moments... like screenwriters stuck in high school philosophy write about... you know!

Sarah is Drinking:
Troublesome Jellyfish, Fifth Hammer Brewing
A hazy double IPA double-dry hopped with Mosaic and Motueka.

Rebecca is Drinking:
Happy Hermit, Green Bench Brewing Co. 
Silas Dent lived a simple and happy life on Cabbage Key in a hut made of palm fronds, surrounded by mangroves and wildlife with no running water and no electricity. In 1948 Dent was featured in LIFE magazine, who named him “The Happy Hermit of Cabbage Key.” It was said that Dent could forecast the weather, calculate the temperature, and commune with Poseidon himself. Before his death at the age of 76 in 1952, Dent claimed that “civilization is too dangerous.” Our Happy Hermit Pale Ale is a sessionable, hop forward approach to the style that is a perfect match for a breezy St. Petersburg afternoon, and like Silas, is one of a kind.

Citra Ass Down, Against the Grain
This is a very hop forward American style IPA. Brewed with Pale, Vienna, Munich and wheat malt for a solid base for all American hops, focusing mainly on the variety “Citra.” Citra hops are a relatively new variety introduced in 2008. It was bred as a hybrid of a number of different hops, including Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, U.S. Tettnanger, East Kent Golding, Bavarian, Brewers Gold, and other unknown hops. The resulting hop, Citra, has a distinct citrusy and tropical fruit flavor and aroma. In Citra ass down we used American Columbus for bittering and 11# of Citra at the end of the boil for late kettle addition flavor and aroma. Then we added 6 more pounds Citra and 5# Centennial post fermention for aroma. Rebrewed for your tasting pleasure!
