There’s no half steppin’ on the Windowsill today, just a little Half & Half!
Omnipollo and Evil Twin Brewing are two of my favorite gypsy breweries, so imagine my excitement when I heard that the two have collaborated on an entire series of Lemonade-based brews. Thus far, in the series, the tag team has released Coffeenade, Rainbownade, Pink Lemonade, Old Fashioned Lemonade and today’s Windowsill brew, the Half & Half Lemonade Iced Tea IPA. I love the collaborative spirit of these two breweries, and am happy that they can make such experimental brews together.
That being said, I didn’t love the Half & Half. First of all, it was very heavy on the lemonade flavor. The sweetness from the iced tea was the next thing I noticed, and that wasn’t bad. In all, this was a very good lemonade iced tea mix. However, I didn’t like the way it worked as an IPA. I look forward to tasting the other collaborations someday, but this one missed for me. Too lemony, too sweet. Here’s hoping for better luck with the next one. I dig the label, though!
Go like this and follow us on Instagram for more great, and maybe not so great, craft beer!
Hops: Citra, Simcoe

Are you ready to watch the Windowsill whip? Great! There will be no nae naes, though.
Maryland’s Oliver Brewing Company and Stillwater Artisanal—a gypsy brewery based in Brooklyn, NY—have collaborated on many beers. Although Oliver started in 1993, and Stillwater is just a baby (2010), the two seem to work really well together. This is the first time I’ve had the pleasure of hosting one of them on my Windowsill, but it won’t be the last.
The Whipped 2.0 was a really interesting choice for my first from this team. It’s a double IPA brewed with over 500 lbs of pureed mangos, flaked oats, lactose (for mouthfeel) and vanilla beans. The hop profile is actually really nice, too. 130 lbs of Citra and Simcoe hops are used to give it a nice, juicy, tropical deliciousness. Top top it all off, it’s a Nitro beer! This brew combines everything, from aroma to flavor to mouthfeel. Superb effort!
Check this great collaboration brew on our Instagram, now!
Hops: Galaxy, Citra, El Dorado, Nelson Sauvin

If you’ve been following Beers on Window Sills on Instagram, you know we’ve been powering over the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Across the World 12-pack over the last six weeks. Well, We’re all done! I have to say, I was overall very impressed by these collaborations. I learned a lot about a lot of new breweries, and every beer ranged from good to great, in my book.
Check out all of my reviews below. I can’t wait for next year’s Beer Camp release! Continue reading “Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Is on the Window Sill!”
