Again, our sides have been slit and although we clutch to keep them in, the bitter juices of an ancient elixir gush to the floor.

Canyon Of Heroes screams at your senses and pushes into you with the grace of a blade.
I guess "Stabbed in the Guts IPA" didn't have the same ring to it... :unsure:

:goodposting:  wtf

Why not Seppuku?
Bad marketing, they want to keep their customers ;)

OK warriors, we're co-hosting a beer that's to be delivered from our brew deck to your ceremonial chalice. We've again brewed with our cohorts at Three Floyds Brewing Co and have given birth to the sludge of angels, Anicca India Pale. Anicca IPA is single hopped snake juice showcasing the Mosaic hop, a plant throwing off a cornucopia of fruit flavors. Bitter sweet and full of force, this IPA bends your brain into a tropical storm of writhing glory. As the philosophy explains, Anicca will come and go, so come sip this before all is gone.

~Gabriel, Half Acre

I hope this is a real mf'er of a hop bomb, seeing as its a FFF collab and all. For all the IPA's they do, rarely does one really blow your hop socks off.

Sometimes, you mine your brain, and the depths of flesh don't provide the proper eloquence to describe a beer. To describe Chocolate Camaro, I defer to Gabriel's description of the beer posted last year:

"We're rolling out the muscle of love, Chocolate Camaro.  This year, this tubbed out guzzler of choco thrust power rounded out just as we'd hoped.  Smooth, milk chocolatey delight cruising down your fun highway all the way to pleasure town. This coco chuggler will go on sale Friday at 12noon. Top off at your leisure."

Spring is upon us. As we leave the cold stuff in the dust, and propel into the days with  sunshine, green grass, and lots of blossoming, we trot out two new beers to help greet the much needed season change.

Akari Shogun rides back into these parts today.  ?A blend of wheat and pilsner malts build the base, which is then topped up with Galaxy & Motueka hops, resulting in summer in a glass. The bolts of light shine bright and strike from unexpected places. Akari Shogun American Wheat Ale is the lime-citrus wheat force

?Akari Shogun release details:?

Wednesday, March 20th
5.5% ABV
64 ounce growler: $12 (+ $4 for a new jar)?
32 ounce growler: $7 (+ $4 for a new jar)?
Pint in the tap room: $5

Pony is new to the scene, but we welcome this pilsner lager into the fold like an old friend. Pony is a crisp, clean pilsner you can saddle on up to the bar and order with a confident, rangy thunder. Get on yer stoop or prepare for the trek, there's a Pony in every pint.

?

Pony release details:?

The Grotto is an Extra Pale Ale that is light in color but high on crushability. The Grotto is your mystic cave of sessionable waters. We pulled inspiration for The Grotto from pale ales of yore - a simple malt bill consisting of 2-Row & Munich, topped off with Centennial and Cascade hops.

Outer space is deep, man. Real deep. All sorts of mysterious, other-worldly, indescribable stuff happens out there. When you break it down and really think about it, we're all part of this space idea as well. I mean, do you realize we're floating in space? And who's to say what else is out there? (well, besides scientists and astronomers and all those smarty-pants type folk... they do a pretty good job) Among the information that we do know is the concept of these ultra-high gravity black holes that eat stars. They just cruise around, light years away, and epicly consume stars and photons of light with a voracious appetite. These black holes are sometimes referred to as stargrazers.

Unrelated but still totally awesome, we named a beer of ours Stargrazer. Stargrazer is a crisp lager, lightly hopped with modern American hops. Stargrazer drinks clean, dry and refreshing, making for an all-around rewarding experience. Embrace the cosmos, we're launching Stargrazer at the brewery on Friday.

Up next, we're wrapping some aluminum around a tidy amount of non-traditional lager beer we brewed with Mikkeller. Guest Lager is a beer that's been in the making for some time. The result, a collision of creative disciplines.

The Outside: This label was a creative relay between both Half Acre and Mikkeller that ended with a skin tied to each. Observe the hammer & chisel work of Phineas Jones and Keith Shore.

The Liquid: Brought to life using a lager yeast strain, this beer is a sensory pounder. Ignoring the idea of a traditional lager balance, Guest Lager hops the line and intentionally scales the flavors tied to the ale spectrum. This 8% ABV style bender wrangles an impressive canon of flavor into one place. Did we mention hops? This particular lager hosts enough Nelson Sauvin & Falconer's Flight to soothe any weary traveler.

~Gabriel, HABC

The Release Details: We have a small amount of this beer. Guest Lager will be released Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013 in our store and in our tap room. A 4-pack of 16 ounce cans is $14.99, with a limit of one 4-pack per person. In the tap room, $3 for a 5 ounce pour, and $5 for a 13 ounce pour. No growler fills.

http://halfacrebeer.com/blog/2013/7/22/summer-rules

What does summer mean to you? Depending on who you ask, summer can mean the greatest or the worst time of the year. The climate can make one feel waves of freedom and optimism or alienation and oppression by the fiery orb we cruise around. This week, you'll get to choose what summer means to you with two new releases aimed to quench the thirst that warm weather thrusts upon Chicago.


Summer Rules//No Rules

A 4.8% ABV summer session ale that's all Amarillo hops and all good times. Damn The Man. No Rules.


Sky Devil Saison

A classic, fermented on Saison Dupont yeast. Brewed to quell the thirst caused by the bright thing in the sky, nice and easy at 5.75% ABV.

-Eric, Half Acre Beer Co.

 Release Details

Summer Rules//No Rules Release Date: Wednesday, July 24, 2013
Sky Devil Saison Release Date: Friday, July 26, 2013

Imagine a comic book. The kind with superheroes and punching and stuff. Now imagine that most of those superheroes are kind of total jerks. Add in a lot of profanity. No, more profanity than that. Ok, now throw in felonious owls, spectral bovines, gorilla arms, lots of bears, unplanned pregnancy, and 19th century boxer John L. Sullivan. And then a little more profanity. And be sure to include almost nothing about theology or space exploration.

Now imagine—and this is key—being able to drink all that. And then imagine it's called Beer Hates Astronauts, because that's what we're calling it. And we're calling it that because it's the beer version of God Hates Astronauts, which is the actual comic I completely failed to properly evoke above.

This is just the latest step in creator Ryan Browne's attempt to dominate the world by means of one of the most unsummarizable comics in existence. Having recently Kickstarted the deluxe hardcover edition of God Hates Astronauts with massive success, he has joined forces with Half Acre for a groundbreaking venture in distributing comics in hoppy liquid form.

Beer Hates Astronauts will be set free from its containment unit here at the brewery on Friday, August 30. It is a 7% ABV India Pale Ale brewed with Vienna malt and Citra hops. It will be available in 22 oz. bombers for $8.99 + tax, (limit 4 per person). Or you can buy it by the glass in our Tap Room.

And as if that all isn't enough, there will be a special launch event in the Tap Room on Sunday, September 1st at 2pm, featuring Ryan Browne in person where you can probably talk him into signing bombers or body parts or explaining just what the deal with the cheeseburger-eating tigers is. (Probably not that last thing, actually.)

DOUBLE DAISY CUTTER AND LAGER TOWN
September 18, 2013  /  Eric

Next Friday, September 27th, we're rolling out two bottled beers. Grab your hoodie, buckle up and get the details below.



DOUBLE DAISY CUTTER

In our seasonal approach to spilling out generous servings of Double Daisy Cutter, we arrive at another ration. The double headed donkey grazes through the months and appears every so often to water the troops and sooth the transitions. The fictitious Double Pale Ale is a style both big and small. Small enough to sit down and rest a while, but big enough that any real time spent could get the best of you. Brewing Double Daisy Cutter is a process of finding all the vunerable moments to push hops into its core, while making the core strong enough to hold up to the incessant torment. As brewers, we all have opportunity to add and add. The bigger quest is to stoke the additions into a reward that you, the fearless traveler, soak up into your veins with every snort. So let us strip this donkey naked and have him saunter into your wildest of taste experiences.

8% ABV riddled with four succulent hop varieties & four stiff barley varieties. We ring these materials out, start a yeast fight, detonate additional hops into the skirmish, squelch the heat, ice it down, push the gas in and pack it all into canisters of convenience.

~Gabriel, Half Acre Beer Co.
LagerTown



Take a trip to Octoberfest and hang out in Lager Town. A rich, malty Octoberfest experience awaits you. This marks Lager Town's maiden voyage into bottles in an attempt to capture its sturdy amber frame. Prost!

http://halfacrebeer.com/blog/2013/10/28/chub-step



Quote
At Half Acre, Chub Step Porter has become a welcome beer. Now, for the first time, we're putting the chunk in bombers. Just like the real Chub, this beer welcomes cold weather at the door. "What's that, there's frost on the ground?"  Enter the squat trotter; practically choad in dimension and grunting each breath into your life. He's your low frequency chocolatier slowing the deep beats down to a drool. An array of chocolate and brown malts stew in their sweet tea before the Fuggle nation bitters the pot. An English yeast cheers its porter roots and molds the slurry into the delicate sauce we've come to know as Chub Step. Find the bottom of a couple porter pints and climb into the palm of this comfortable host.

 CHUB STEP RELEASE DETAILS

Release Date: Friday, November 1st
6% ABV
22 oz. bomber bottle: $6.99
64 oz. growler refill: $15
32 oz. growler refill: $8
16 oz. draft: $5

In the years that we've been twisting out beers, we've never packaged an IPA for regular distribution. We've been neck deep in our sea of hoppy waters, but have only thrown out IPA's as special release relationships. We've taken on a program that has us sending out seasonal cans that hang around for some months. It gives us and you a chance to introduce yourself, whip up a firm handshake and live with each other for a clip. Akari Shogun was an initial partner in this scheme, but as the Shogun hibernates till spring, we introduce another brew.

Heyoka is a western charged firecracker. We conjured the classics in Chinook and Amarillo then laid them on a bed of pale malt. This India Pale Ale shoots straight to the bitter edge before falling into a mellow haze. Deep gold, 7% ABV and ready to travel into the distance. The Heyoka resides in the opposite and is said to use the wind as sticks to beat the drum of thunder.

You'll find this in draft and in cans around town. Use your courage.

Cheers,

Half Acre Beer Co.

Chicago, IL

NAVAJA
January 15, 2014  /  Gabriel

Navaja-Post.jpg
Some months ago we brewed several draft versions of Navaja, a double IPA pounded out for your pleasure. Those variants funneled us toward the light and now we're wrapping glass around it and making it a full fledged enterprise. 9.5% and full of steam, this weighty snack forges sharp and soft edges into one single blade. 

Chiseled down and stripped of the unnecessary, we laid a foundation exclusively from Golden Promise malt. The Promise is barley's almond butter; a rich and chewy spackle for your mouth. Yanked from the scabbard to slap at your jelly needs, the substantial Columbus, Mosaic & Hallertau Blanc. Navaja Double IPA is a buxom tool that's sure to challenge the most daring sword swallower.

Release Date: 1/17/2014
$10.99 per bottle
$20.00 64 oz growler
$11.00 32 oz growler
$6.00 13oz draft pour

The roads are iced, but we're still cracking the garage door and rolling out the straight pipes. The CoCo Chuggler, Chocolate Camaro, has been melting mouths and cruising throats since 2011. Roasty roads connect with tubbed out chocolate chunkers and slender silk cutters. Under the hood, a V8 of stout power geared to haul the drag track. Let it rumble your chest a bit because this nugget ship is headed south and taking your taste buds all the way to the beaches of boomtown.

Useful info: 6% ABV Chocolate Milk Stout brewed with Lactose and Cacoa Nibs from Belize and the Dominican Republic that were roasted by Ethereal Confections.

22 oz Bomber: $8.99

On Thursday 2/20/14 we'll join forces for the good of all.

Three Floyds, Bill Kim and Half Acre will host an evening of fellowship in celebration of "A Week of Three Floyds and Friends." To mark the occasion, we'll release Shewolf, a bracing, collaborative IPA we brew with Three Floyds.

While our store and tap room will be open as usual, we'll have another level of participation that gets you into the bowels of the brewery. We'll be serving Bento Boxes curated by Chef Bill Kim and four 12oz pours of beer (two by Three Floyds and two from Half Acre.) Two sessions. Get involved.

Tickets available here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/578171

Shewolf Relese Details:
Release date: 2/20/14 @ 12:00pm
64 oz Growler: $20 (64 oz limit)
32 oz Howler: $11
22 oz Bottle: $8.99 (limit 4)
13 oz Draft: $5

We brew Double Daisy Cutter every three months. You see it as one weather pattern bleeds into the next.

It's part of Half Acre's circadian rhythm to touch base with this beer and pump it out to the city. Tough winter, you say? You're not kidding. You owe it to yourself to shed the shell and cut loose. Double Daisy Cutter, in the greater body of beer being brewed today, isn't a 'big' beer. It's a heavy weight session beer, really. But, the hop content and process that it endures makes it a vicious pet, indeed. Imagine your haziest friend blowing weed in an orange tree after mowing the lawn.

Take that aroma, douse it in booze and spread it on a slice of multigrain. You've got yourself an open faced Double Daisy sandwich, and it's lunch time. Winter has pulled your underwear clear over your head. Rally back and take what is yours.

DETAILS:

Release Date : 3/12/14 @ noon
8% ABV
22 oz bottle : $9.99 (limit 4)
64 oz growler refill : $20 (limit 64 oz)
32 oz howler refill : $11 (limit 64 oz)
13 oz pour : $5

http://halfacrebeer.com/blog/2014/3/17/ginger-twin



Ginger Twin, our India Style Red Ale, makes its yearly return Wednesday.

This beer is brewed to celebrate those of you that sport beards, brawn, and the fiery follicles. Gingers and twins, both rare breeds on their own accord, are real world unicorns when found sharing the same frame.

Boasting a hefty amber malt bill behind loads of pine, a twist of musk, and a tiny tickle of tropical, Ginger Twin is one for taking home to Mama.

Per usual, if you don natural red hair or have an identical twin, we'd love to give you 10% off your purchase.

DETAILS:

Release Date: 3/19 @ noon
22 oz bottle: $8.99
64 oz growler refill: $15
32 oz howler refill: $8
16 oz draft: $5

Nope, a couple years old I think. Told them they need a glass with the new design on it.
