New in From Off Color Brewing

Off Color Brewing Well Fed Sheep...$10.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
A rich malt, light caramel, and biscuit profile (from as much malt as our brewhouse could hold) is accentuated by a slight alcoholic presence, while distinct honey notes compliment the dry finish. Pale copper on color with only enough hops to balance the huge malt profile.
Scotch Ales focus on malt (and booze) but ferment cooler than most other ales to rein in harsh alcoholic burn and have very low hopping rates. The addition of honey adds a layer of complexion and dries out the finish.

Off Color Brewing Very, Very Far...$10.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Great American Beer Festival® 2019 Gold Medal for Other Belgian-Style Ale
Golden multifaceted Belgian style ale with subtle fruit cocktail notes of grapefruit and lychee complimented with apricot hop character and a layer of black peppercorn phenols. 6.0 % alc/vol
Very, Very Far adds a twist on the spirit of Belgian mixed fermentation brewing by utilizing a non-traditional wine yeast, Torulaspora delbrueckii.* The Torulaspora yeast feasts on the simple sugars before fermentation is completed with the addition of a traditional Belgian yeast strain. The symbiotic fermentation causes an elevated ethyl ester fruit profile in the final beer.
Off Color Brewing Beer for Lounging...$10.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Beer for Lounging revolves around the balance between bread crumb malt and subtle hints of grapefruit, orange rind, and pear. A dry finish and moderate alcohol content makes this the perfect companion to your next lounging activity.
Most pale ales get most of their hop flavor from dry hopping (or adding hops directly to the fermenting vessel). A full range of hop essential oils (flavor intensive natural oils) are transferred into the final beer when the hops are added to the cool beer. Among these hop oils is myrcene (pronounced mehr-sen), which is the most potent of all hop oils and is responsible for
Beer for Lounging utilizes a method called hopbacking, which runs hot, but not boiling, grain sugar solution (or wort) through a bed of whole cone hops. The hot wort removes almost all the myrcene oil, which volatilizes at 147F. So only the more subtle hop oils carry through to the final beer and leaves out the lawn clippings.
