[intense_collapse title=”How much are tours?”] Glad you asked – Georgia law changed in September 2017, allowing us to shake up what happens when you visit the brewery. Now we can sell you pints directly, without having to go on a tour. Pint prices vary but most start at $5. So tours aren’t required as part of your visit – but we still offer them with 15oz of samples for $8.[/intense_collapse]
[intense_collapse title=”What’s all this gunk floating in my beer?”] The flakes or sediment you’re seeing in the beer are a result of polyphenols binding to proteins in the beer. Both polyphenols and proteins are naturally occurring in brewing ingredients and are present in ALL beer. The visible presence of the polyphenol-protein precipitation happens with heightened levels when the colloidal haze begins to breakdown over time. This is totally safe!
What then are polyphenols you ask?
Well, polyphenols are a micronutrient that assists in preventing degenerative diseases and can be found in any plant-based food or ingredient such as malt and hops. The irony in the concern that these flakes may be dangerous at all, and the fact they could just be preventing cell mutation in our bodies that are brimming with that delicious antidote, is as thick as the beer you bought is flavorful.
Speaking of how flavorful that beer is…
The reason you may find these flavor flakes in our beer vs. say a Bud Light, is that our beer is chock full of those plant based ingredients via our mega dry hopping practices. We also don’t filter the polyphenols out of the beer. Why don’t we dry hop less or filter our beer? Well because then we wouldn’t be delivering that excellent flavor and micronutrients straight to your face.
Ultimately we want our beer to look pretty but not at the price of losing any of our signature full flavored hoppy goodness. [/intense_collapse]
[intense_collapse title=”Are your hops organic?”] Most hops are grown using organic practices but usually don’t go the extra step for organic certification.[/intense_collapse]
