The Brume Hazy IPA Release Event
Mar
29
12:00 PM12:00

The Brume Hazy IPA Release Event

“Brume” is a word derived from Old Occitan that describes an encompassing mist or fog, which is what the hazy IPA style seems to have become these days.

The Brume transforms our landscape, obscuring what was clear, confusing what was known, and making the familiar strange.

Brewed as a collaboration with the talented brewers of Illuminated Brew Works, the Brume is our first foray into this strange, foggy realm. With its softer edges, tropical notes, and refreshing finish, this double dry hopped IPA challenges long-held beliefs and captures the imagination.

The Prairie Moon Pop-Up will be in effect for the release, so your belly will be happy all-around.

Best enjoyed fresh, we recommend drinking The Brume as soon as you can and discover the deliciousness that lurks within.

NO LIMIT ON 4-PACKS

The First Five Bottle Release
Dec
20
4:00 PM16:00

The First Five Bottle Release

To toast our first five years, we came up with something special: we took Today is the Day, our Belgian-Style Quadrupel, aged for a year in whiskey, rum, and port barrels, and added ripe black currants before bottling. The result is a gorgeous beer, garnet in color, with aromas of chocolate cherry cordials, and a luxuriously long finish of tart raspberries, vanilla, and port — most certainly a beer for celebrations.

We are releasing this 5th anniversary beer on the 5th anniversary of the day our Tap Room opened, so please come raise a glass with us on December 20 to celebrate the first five and muse upon what the next five may bring!

Mad Moxie will pop up in the Tap Room with delicious bites from 5-9 PM! Plus, we’ll tap a special keg or two….

This beer will only be available in the Tap Room. Bottles go on sale at 4 PM. Limit 6 bottles per customer.
