Outer Light Turns One Year Old, Again!

  • Outer Light Brewing Company

OLBC Turns One Year Old...Again!
Saturday, June 4th at Outer Light Brewing Company

Do you like craft beer? Do you like craft beer and games? Do you like craft beer and games and music? Do you like craft beer and games and music and food? Do you like craft beer and games and music and food and being outside? 

We thought you might, and since we can no longer fit everyone inside...

We're roping off the parking lot so we can party at OLBC!

On Saturday, June 4th, 12-9pm, we're celebrating the one year anniversary of our Grand Opening. It's pretty much the best excuse we could find to throw an outdoor party at the beginning of June, or maybe it's a poor attempt to be young forever, or maybe we just like birthday parties. Whatever the case, the event will feature ALL THE FUN, plus some surprises from our cellar. Don't miss it!

Fogg Saison Release Party

  • Outer Light Brewing Company

Ever stare wistfully into your beer, wishing you possessed some magical elixir that enables you to travel the globe at your leisure? We certainly do, because as beer folk, we devise the best beer when our imaginations run wild (and our pint glasses runneth over).

In the name of adventure and travel and the autumnal equinox, Outer Light Brewing Company wants to take you around the world. And you don't even need to look up from your pint glass.

Collaborating with Mystery Brewing Company in Hillsborough, NC, we brewed a saison with American hops, English malt, Belgian yeast, and Eastern spices. Fogg, named after the protagonist Phileas Fogg in the Jules Verne classic Around the World in 80 Days, showcases a garam masala spice blend. In this fruity brew, you'll find coriander, cinnamon, cumin, cloves, cardamom, bay leaves, star anise, and fennel. All the good spices without that curry heat.

Then we traveled to North Carolina and brewed the exact same recipe at Mystery Brewing Company...only we changed the spices. Instead of Eastern spices, we used Western spices: anchon chili peppers, sage, and juniper berries. Because beer is fun.

Fogg Saison. Landing September 16 at the Outer Light taproom.

ABV: 5.5%
IBU: 23
SRM: 6
Malt: Maris Otter, Munich, Flaked Wheat, Victory
Hops: Jarrylo
Yeast: Mystery Brewing Company's house saison strain
