If you brew brew beer, it's important you let everyone, including the beer, know it. But all that talking gets tiresome, let this shirt tell people for you. But not just anyone, only the people clever enough to decipher the code.
Almost 800 playing cards make up this rock n roll mosaic scene. Took me forever to do this.

The taproom at Triple C Brewing Co. recently got a little brighter. Last Saturday, head brewer Scott Kimball clipped down the hops that stretched from the ground outside the brewery to its roof. No longer blocked by the spiraling bines (yes bines, not vines) and whole-cone hop flowers, the morning light streamed into the taproom – surely a good omen for the brewery’s annual Urban Hop Project beer. That beer had already been brewed, with 6 pounds of the brewery’s homegrown hops already thrown into the boil. The 14 pounds of hops they harvested last Saturday morning were tossed into the fermenter to impart an additional punch of hop flavor and aroma. The homegrown hops weren’t the only ones Triple C Brewing used in the beer, though Kimball estimates that 60 percent of the hops in the beer were grown on-site. This venture, dubbed the Urban Hop Project, started in 2012 when Kimball left Colorado to become the head brewer at Triple C Brewing. He didn’t just bring his years of experience as a professional brewer – he brought along some hop rhizomes as well. That first year, the brewery could only muster up enough hops for 5 and 10-gallon pilot batches. Fortunately for the brewery, these hop harvests have grown larger with each passing year. “It’s a fun beer for us,” said founder Chris Harker. “It’s been received well every time we’ve done it. ”. In keeping with the local hops, all of the malt used in the beer came from Asheville’s Riverbend Malt House. The bulk of the hops used in this year’s Urban Hop Project beer is Cascades, a popular citrus-packing variety usually grown in the Pacific Northwest. The hops grown on-site at Triple C are similar to the commercial Cascades Kimball uses, he said, though brewing with hops freshly plucked from the bines imparts a “fruity and bubblegum characteristic. ” The brewery also added some of its own Mosaic hops, which often contribute notes of blueberry, peaches or pineapple. In addition to Cascade and Mosaic varieties, Kimball has also grown Columbus, Centennial, Chinook, Magnum and Mt. Hood hops. He has had the most success with Cascade and Columbus. As more drinkers turn to neighborhood breweries to drink locally, more breweries are turning to nearby hop and grain farmers for local ingredients. North Carolina is now home to around 100 hop farms, according to Jeanine Davis, associate professor and extension specialist in N. C. State University’s department of.

Dan Malz is the co-owner and brewer at Portside Distillery in downtown Cleveland. Portside is both a production brewery and a tasting room. It also makes … as its name implies … spirits. Question: Why did you become a brewer. Answer: I fell in love with beer when I was a German exchange student in high school. that passion gradually transformed into a vocation. Q: The beer industry has gone through a major hoppy phase and is now embarking on a sour trend. What do you think the next big beer trend will be. A: I currently see beers being made with more and more locally sourced ingredients. Ohio's hop production increases with each year and new maltsters are popping up across the state. Using local grown ingredients adds to the local economy, cuts down on the fossil fuel used for transportation, and gives the discerning beer drinking a better understanding of where the beer truly comes from. I've brewed beer with local hops and Ohio malted barley with great results. Will the cost of these local ingredients decrease to make a sustainable operation. Time will tell. Q: With so many breweries opening in Ohio, what advice can you give future brewers to be successful. A: Advice is easy to give, but is it worth anything. To tell someone "make sure you make great beer" or "always use an aseptic procedure. " I think everyone knows that. To any future brewers, I'd share Hofstadter's Law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law. Ordering the brewhouse equipment, receiving permits, architectural drawings, general build-out, brewer's notice, label approval, financing. the list goes on and on. All of these things take time, usually more time than you expect, even when you expect them to take more time. Q: What’s your best-selling beer and why do you think it’s so popular. A: Our best-selling beer is our 216 Dry Hopped Pale Ale. It's a great, easy drinking, flavorful, hoppy beer, made with Columbus, Centennial and Mosaic hops. This is not a cheap pale lager, or an even cheaper pale ale. 216 is a high quality, full-flavored, smooth American pale ale. In the past few years, Cleveland has been having a great resurgence and there are many reasons to celebrate. Our 216 Dry Hopped Pale Ale helps with those. Source: www.ohio.com
AKRON, Ohio – Winning a home-brew contest is affirmation of a brewer's hard work. You might get a medal and a few bucks. Winning West Point Market 's annual Bottle My Brew home-brew challenge holds a bit more weight. That's because Thirsty Dog Brewery brews and bottles the winning beer, and the family-run market sells it. The latest winner is Greg Irving's Comet IPA. Six-packs of 12-ounce bottles are available in the store for $11. And next week, it will be available on draft at the store, said West Point Market CEO Rick Vernon. About 75 entries were submitted in the competition , held in November. Among the 10 finalists, Irving entered one of only two India Pale Ales, somewhat of a surprise considering the style's popularity. Half the entries were Stouts or Porters. Winning is cool, but seeing your work go from recipe to a store shelf is great validation, Irving said. "Oh man, it's pretty crazy, right. A little unbelievable," said Irving, of Strongsville. "It's neat seeing your own beer come to fruition after starting out as a home-brewing recipe. Irving used whole-leaf Comet hops in his IPA, which is about 6. 5 percent alcohol and 50 International Bitterness Units. "It's really well done," said Vernon, a beer aficionado. "It's a single hop, but then he dry hops it with four other hops. Irving said he dry-hopped the beer with a potpourri of Calypso, Citra, Galaxy and Mosaic hops – not your run-of-the-mill varietals. "Comet was a hop that Guinness used back in the '80s," he said. "They dropped it because it gave too much of a citrusy characteristic to Guinness. There was no other market for it. It fell out of favor for many years and then resurged in the past two years. Dry hopping is a process where brewers add hops after fermentation. "Once the beer is finished fermenting, that's when you add the dry hops," said Irving, also a certified beer judge. "It's definitely for flavor, aroma, a little for mouthfeel. Irving said Thirsty Dog "did a really good job" with the recipe, with the only major change being that a British yeast was substituted from the original recipe. Dark tan in color, Comet IPA looks almost like a brown ale. It's an incredibly smooth, quaffable ale that yields a bit of citrus but doesn't bomb you with it. A slight hint of pine also seeps through. It's no wonder the judges graded this the best of the competition. it's a very drinkable. Source: www.cleveland.com

Chris and Matt decided they would contract for as much Mosaic as they could get in 2014, which was going to be 2,000 pounds. In the world of Mosaic at the time, that was a lot of hops, but for Karl Strauss, it was only a one-month supply. Despite the
Mosaic is a proprietary hop, meaning it can be produced only by licensed growers. Catherine and Michael Johnson, owners of GoatHouse Brewing in Lincoln, learned that soon after launching their business. Among other things, they grow their own hops.
