COME ON BEACHES! | Twin Oast x Saucy Brew Works
Style: California Hoppy Blonde
Featured Hops: Sabro, Idaho 7
Yeast: West Coast IV
Inspiration: Head Brewer of Twin Oast, John and I both cut our teeth in California working for the BJ’s Brewhouse group. This beer is an ode to our roots and built with balance to be a super summer crusher.
SLOW CRASH | Noble Beast x Saucy Brew Works
Style: Cold IPA
Featured Hops: Citra, Mosaic, Ekuanot
Yeast: Munich Lager II
Inspiration: Named for the process by which we slowly chill down lagering beers to 32F, Cold IPA is an emerging style brewed like an IPA but fermented with lager yeast.
GET BUSY LIVIN' | Fat Heads x Masthead x Saucy Brew Works
Style: West Coast IPA
Featured Hops: Simcoe, Citra, Ekuanot
Inspiration: Saucy Head Brewer, Tom Gray is our industry veteran and if you ask around town about him you’ll get the same answer, he’s a great guy! Last year Tom experienced an unexpected loss that left a hole in everyone’s hearts. We wanted to brew a tribute beer in their memory and for Tom as he's such a legend in this town. He named the beer after his favorite quote from the movie Shawshank Redemption.
ALL HAZY BABY | Crooked Pecker x Saucy Brew Works
Style: Double Dry-Hopped Imperial Hazy IPA
Featured Hops: Sabro, Sabro Cryo, Citra
Yeast: Imperial JUICE
Inspiration: Head Brewer of Crooked Pecker, Erik, and our CBO, Eric talked about making a big beer that was smooth and would go down easy. Neither wanted to push an agenda of strictly hops or malt on the recipe and felt the theme of “it’s all gravy, baby” was fitting – hence the name. And in case you didn't know, Hazy IPAs are Crooked Pecker’s bailiwick.
