Weird Science Beer Release & Hop Selection

Let’s get yeasty! We’re dropping knowledge and debuting our newest brew: a collaboration with Berkeley Brewing Science titled Weird Science, a pale ale fermented with genetically engineered yeast. Selectively bred in a lab, this yeast produces the same compounds that aromatic hop oils contribute to the brewing process. Our friends from Berkeley Brewing Science and the ever-charming Collin McDonnell of HenHouse Brewing Company will be joining Drake’s Brewing Co. Brewmaster John Gillooly for a demo at our Side Bar on Thursday, July 25th from 4-8pm.

In our ongoing efforts to innovate and experiment, we’ll also be hosting a smell test of five different hop varietals. Curious imbibers will taste our freaky deaky new science beer without a dry-hop, then vote on which of the five hop strains would complete the puzzle. Winner of the popular vote will make its way into our upcoming collaboration with HenHouse, also brewed with genetically engineered yeast. Smell the hops, taste the beer and imagine the possibilities!

Each 4oz sample will cost $2. If you like what you taste, an 8oz pour will set you back $4.

Come get your Bill Nye on and drink in some education!
