Bravery Brewing Company out of Lancaster, California, started brewing in 2011, crafting small batches of beer out of their small, but adequate 3bbl brewhouse. They’ve always had a presence at local beers events, both as a brewery serving up their brews, and as beer geeks, specifically Brian Avery, the brewery at Bravery. Bravery recently expanded the brewery, upgrading to a hefty 15bbl brewhouse, thus expanding their brewing capabilities and distribution.

Bravery Brewing Beers

The beers featured this week on the show were provided to us by Brian Avery himself, and they’re quite special, and quite delicious. They’re mostly on the heavier end of the alcohol scale, ranging in style from Strong Ale, to Barleywine and Barrel-aged stout. The beers are part of Bravery’s Bravura Collective, Bravery’s annual Reserve Society-style club, so our thanks go out to the fine folks at Bravery for hooking us up!

[S4/E52] Hazy Collaboration With Brewcaipa

You guys…this is pretty awesome.

We have our very own Hazy, New England-ish style IPA on tap at an actually brewery that you can go to and try!

That’s right, folks! Today, Friday, December 22, 2017, is the first official day that our collaboration beer with Brewcaipa Brewing Co is on tap, and we’re pretty stoked about it!

Jason, Derek, and John at Brewcaipa Brewing Co

Without getting into too much detail (after all, we do talk about the collab in this week’s episode), this beer was quite ambitious for both us as homebrewers and Derek Bougie, the brewer at Brewcaipa. Jason was the most experienced among us with brewing the style on a small scale, so naturally, we leaned on him for the construction the recipe.

The recipe is quite simple, consisting of 2 row and Vienna malts, as well as rolled oats and unmalted wheat. The hops, on their other hand, are another story. This beer has 60 POUNDS OF HOPS IN IT. This is a ten barrel batch of beer which means there are around 2 pounds of hops per barrel in the dry hop. The beer is triple dry hopped with an equal blend of Citra, Equinox, and Pacifica hops, giving it a super-fruity aroma and flavor. This beer is awesome.

We’ll spare you the finer details about the beer and just get to the point: you should go to Brewcaipa and buy a pint of two. Derek and Brewcaipa were both massively generous to have us in their space to make this beer, and we can’t thank them enough.

The beer is on tap RIGHT NOW exclusively at Brewcaipa Brewing Co, and we can’t wait for you to try it.

We also made a vlog of the brewday at Brewcaipa with Derek! Check it out:
