It’s time to get experimental on the Windowsill.
I have to imagine that half the fun of owning a brewery is the research and development phase of production. Nearly infinite combinations of ingredients are at the brewer’s fingertips, meaning he or she can make nearly infinite flavors of any particular type of beer. With their Beta Experimental IPA program, Common Roots Brewing Company has, essentially, opened up the R&D portion of their production process to the public, by releasing slightly different versions of the IPA, as they try to perfect the recipe.
In October, the Beta was made with Amarillo hops and dry-hopping additions. In November, El Dorado, Columbus and Amarillo hops were used. In January, Citra and Columbus hops were the go to for flavoring. In February, un-malted wheat was added to yet another combination of hops. In March’s release, which is the version I picked up at my local beer distributer, all Citra hops were used.
I must say, I was a little disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, the beer was off the chain. I just wish I’d known about all the other versions too. I would have put them all on my sill and compared the flavors! The latest incarnation was crisp, floral and refreshing. The freaky label art is pretty fun too. Very cool stuff from the South Glenn Falls, NY brewery!
Check it out on Instagram, now, and you’ll feel like the Omega of your bunch!
