Updates From the Brewery Floor

There have been lots of significant events around the brewery since my last update: Batch 3000 was brewed on April 4th. We decided to make a black version of our beloved dry hopped Pale Ale, 1500. 1500 was actually made to commemorate batch 1500 at Drake’s, and its darker cousin 3000 is incredibly tasty, just […]

Batch 3000

Drake’s brewed it’s 3000th batch on Monday! Batch 3000 is a black 1500– i.e. a dark version of our 1500 Pale Ale… or a hoppy black ale… or as our newest team member, Jesse, calls it: “the dark side of the moon”… I think you get the idea. We used Carafa malt, creating a lightly […]
