Tired Hands Brewing Company

  • Undertow Our black wheat Saison fermented on local Merlot grapes and a literal ton of local blueberries in one of our large oak foudres at our Fermentaria in June of 2016. She spent 3 months fermenting and conditioning in oak and then another 8 months in the bottle before release. Crazy beer. It has these dark berry tones – dried tart cherry, blueberry, even some plum – and a peppery, cedar quality, but also this leathery, tobacco-y richness, as well as the tiniest suggestion of cocoa. Very wine-like... Very complex. Unique, and something I’m really excited about. 6.8%
  • Ourison Batch 12 Ourison represents the progression and evolution of our Saison fermentation program. Ourison is Our Saison, SaisonHands, left to condition in oak and then allowed to fully express itself via a lengthy bottle conditioning period. The end result is a highly refined snappy and pungent Saison that, I feel, is one of the most simplistic and exciting iterations of Saison that we have ever produced. Exceedingly dry and expressive. Citrus and white grape. 5%
  • Alien Church Our zap! zap! zap! freaky scary flavor photosynthesizing Reptoid Alien IPA. Brewed with heavy amounts of oats and extraterrestrially hopped with our favorite sticky drippy juicy American varietals. Bright mango and papaya in this one.
  • Gatherer Brewed June 2017 in collaboration with the wise and magnanimous Drew Fox of 18th St. Brewery. We brewed a base recipe similar to their ‘Hunter,’ spiced it with ingredients foraged from Jean’s farm (honeysuckle, Appalachian allspice, lemon balm, mint, turkey tail mushrooms, and mugwort), and added over 100 pounds of Pennsylvania wildflower honey. The resulting beer is dense and devastating while remaining peaceful and floral.
    -Notes of chocolate tort, Turkish coffee, salted caramel, tawny port, and pressed flowers. 11.5%
  • Hop Hands Our precious American Pale Ale. Brewed with oats. Hopped intensely with Simcoe, Centennial, and Amarillo. Hazy, juicy, exceedingly aromatic and imminently crushable. Our favorite. Refined notes of tangelo, papaya, grapefruit, and fresh bread. 5.5%
  • Lemon Merangue Milkshake IPA Another killer riff on our over-the-top Culinary IPA. Brewed with a heavy amount of oats and lactose sugar. Hopped intensely with Mosaic and Citra and then conditioned atop almost twice the amount of luscious Madagascar vanilla beans and fresh lemon purée. This batch luscious, decadent, but extremely bright and would make our sweet pals at @omnipollo proud. 7.5%
  • Eyes Closed and Open A sturdy but refreshing oat Saison hopped with experimental hop #06297. Brewed in March of 2016. Fermented in one of our large oak foudres with our Magickal Saison yeast. Bottled in June of 2016. Lush notes of pineapple, hay, tropical, effervescent Riesling, and tart crab apple. 8%
