About once a week, we speak with a beer fan who is concerned about the "floaties," flakes, or sediment they've found in their craft beer. "Is it bad?" "Will this make me sick?" and "this looks gross" are a few of the comments we read or hear.
In recent news, we've heard that craft beer fans want a beer to fuss over. Not only do you want a beer that is delicious, but you are interested in high quality ingredients, a wonderful aroma, and a beer with a beautiful look and color. As you pour your beer into the perfect glass, you see white flakes that you weren't expecting and some not so positive thoughts come to mind unless you've done some previous research about the subject.
"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy" - Benjamin Franklin and "Dogs are a Man's Best Friend"...SO, why not combine our love of beer and dogs to create the ultimate treat: Spent Grain Dog Biscuits.
It's hard to believe but it's been two years since Alan Sprints from Hair of the Dog Brewing Company came over to Bend to brew Fred and Adam at our brewing facility for our first collaboration project. The Dissident and The Stoic were later brewed and all four beers were then transferred into a variety of oak barrels.
