The Window Sill is entering a state of transcendence with a post from our archives today!

Did you know that today’s beer is the first crowler to ever grace my sill? For those of you who don’t know, a crowler is like a growler—those big jugs full of delicious suds you see bearded beer heads carrying around everywhere—but in a can. They first appeared in 2012, when Oskar Blues Brewery (who else) and The Ball Corporation, teamed up to find a better way to make beer portable. I think it’s one of the best things to happen to the craft beer industry this decade. They’re even making a re-sealable one now, I hear.

The Transcend Hoppiness is another release from Half Full Brewery’s Community Sourced Ales Project (like the Grace & Darkness Oyster Stout). It’s brewed in partnership with Pioneer Hops of Connecticut and South Farms of Morris, CT. According to Brewbound, Half Full used what Director of Brewing Operations, Tom Price, called “CONNook” hops. It’s a nice IPA; fruity, citrusy and smooth, with not a lot of bitterness. I enjoyed it! I can’t wait until it releases again this summer!
