Calling all Half Acre fans! We have a variety of freshly stocked core and limited seasonal craft beers just released this week. Get your hands on them before they’re gone!
If you haven’t had the privileged of experiencing Half Acre in all of it’s craft beer glory, here are 8 new releases you need to try!
If you’ve been trailing us for a while, you know that GonerAway is a beer that’s had two other names that both succumbed to peril. This beer has a classic IPA heft. Many hop forward beers of the modern are defined by omission. GoneAway shines from raw material impact on both sides of the equatorial flavor hemisphere.
2. DAISY CUTTER
Daisy Cutter Pale Ale is one of the first beers we brewed at our brewery on Lincoln Ave. It began as a special release bomber beer, but caught fire both in and outside the brewery. At the time, 2009, there were some local pale ales that hit with natural power, but not many. Daisy Cutter’s lush and dank characteristics steadily carved out a place within the Chicago brewing landscape. Today, Daisy Cutter is a call brand that we continue to keep raw and relevant. Blended pine, citrus, papaya and mango. Dank. Apparent biscuit, lingering, obscenely dry. ABV: 5.2%
Proof that the entire arc of beer has been realized. We brew this beer because humans should drink clean, lager beer without unnecessary adornment. For centuries, technically driven utility liquids have made people happy. Its time consuming life cycle touches a special place in our quest as brewers. Bright lager aromatics, noble spiciness, botanicals, juniper, sweet pilsner malt chewiness, light bodied, really dry finish. ABV: 5.5%
Why is the beer called Tuna? We don’t know. Just say it, “I’ll take a Tuna.” It feels good. The ocean is a magical place. The antipode to Navaja, Tuna is rife with attributes that make for ongoing pleasure without the heft. Too much weight while exploring the ocean is dangerous. Watermelon, peach, guava. A denser body to hold up to the sweeter finish. Lemon lime citrus zest, tropical fruit juices. ABV: 4.7%
Dungeons IPA focuses on the heavy use of Mosaic, Waimea and Galaxy. All tangerine and strawberry with very little bitterness, it’s a true shark biscuit’s dream. ABV: 7.0%
6. DEEP SPACE
Imperial IPA, a doubling of our house IPA, Space. A chasm of pits and peaks, swollen with caramel and sap. The water is chummed, here come the sharks. ABV: 10.8%
7. DEN KOLSCH
DEN kölsch, the beer of our elders. Crisp and clean, with Saaz hops for an herbed earth glaze. ABV: 4.8%
Brewed to hum, targeting resin and
blazing forest fruits, we used our house 2-row, Vienna, malted oats and malted wheat alongside Simcoe, Amarillo and Mosaic hops for expressive mango, citrus and peach qualities with a stabilizing dankness. ABV: 7.8%
