Wiegert Brewing Hop Yard

Yes Miss Lupulin…hop yards do exist at the end of rainbows!

After a slow start the hops have really take off like streaks of green lightning! The Galena and Chinook varieties are eons ahead of the rest already at 12 feet tall. Not expecting much of a yield this year while the roots are busy establishing themselves, however next year I do expect at least 75% and by year three a 100% yield.

October Skies

October Skies

6-25 Brew Day

Brewed up a pilot 2 gallon batch of my first attempt of an Märzen amber lager. This style is normally brewed during the third month of the year giving it the name Märzen which of course is German for March. The 7 month process from grain to glass takes this amber lager into the month of October giving the beer it's more familiar name most know as Oktoberfest. Because of the late start it clearly won't be mature enough to drink until January 2018. But hey…better late than never!

July Twilight

July Twilight

6-9 Brew Day

Remember those warm summer evenings watching the sun set behind mountainous scarlet lined clouds? Remember the warm summer wind blowing through your hair as it softly carried the smell of freshly cut grass and the sounds of your favorite songs? Remember gazing up at the moon and stars as they struggled to break out into the night? If so you must be sipping our new "July Twilight". We pretty much captured the magic of a July evening and bottled it making our new brew a sit back and relax summer time ale. Racked yesterday and ready to drink in mid July!
