HOP PROJECT #14 bottled!

Check the "Bottled on date" on the side of the label. Hop Project #14 was bottled on the 3rd week of April, and should be getting out into stores this week. It's available at most specialty beers stores in Nashville, Franklin, and Murfreesboro, and in Whole Foods in Green Hills. It should become available in area Krogers soon.

For this baby, we used Zeus and Galena for first wort bittering, Goldings, Galena, and Columbus at 30 minutes left in the boil, Simcoe and Cascade at the end of the boil, and dry-hopped with Cascade and Simcoe after four days in the fermenter. The bitterness is a little more up-front in this one, compared to others before it.

Hop Project #15 is in the tanks fermenting happily away. We used some Ahtanum hops that we just got in, and I'm looking forward to tasting it in a few weeks.

Tried them both at the taproom and grabbed a 4-pack at Mid-City Spirits this past weekend while up for the marathon. Great job and keep up the great work!

I had this for the first time last night...amazing! This has to be the best beer I've had from a bottle.
