Half Acre Quakerbridge Barleywine

Half Acre Quakerbridge Barleywine, the brewery’s annual ode to thankfulness, returns in November, 2015.

The brewery has not yet announced the exact release details. Half Acre Quakerbridge Barleywine was once known as Marty Stouffer’s Wild America Barley Wine.

…this weighty beer is a choose-your-own-adventure experience. Freshly plugged, this beer is a gooney 10% hop guster to bring your holiday retreat to its knees, but time allows this brew to round and settle into an ever maltier bomb of balance.

Half Acre Quakerbridge Barleywine is a draft, and 22 once bottle offering. Release details for 2015 announced soon.

Style: Barleywine
Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft.
Return: November, 2015

Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter returns November 6th

Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter

Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter, the bigger, boozier version of the brewery’s pale ale, Daisy Cutter, returns on November 6th, 2015. This two-headed donkey is a quarterly release.

Double Daisy Cutter, like the name suggests, is a louder version of Daisy Cutter Pale Ale, an important beer in our library. Technically a Double Pale Ale, Double Daisy Cutter is a power jam with a hefty amount of specialty malt and pacific northwestern hops. Hops speak up and grab the ring of your attention, but all told by today’s anarchist standards, the results are grounded in relative balance.

Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter was first brewed in 2010, and met with instant popularity. A variant of Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter is brewed around every three months, with various recipe tweaks.

Style: Imperial IPA
Availability: 22oz Bombers. Draft. Growler pours.
Return: 11/6/15, 12 noon. 4 Bottle Limit. $9.99. Growler limits as well.

8% ABV

Half Acre Forced to Change IPA Name Yet Again

Half Acre GoneAway IPA

Back in January, Half Acre changed the name of Heyoka India Pale Ale to Senita India Pale Ale. The change came after members of the Lakota (Native Americans from the Great Plans of the United States) reached out to Half Acre about the use of the term.

Well guess what. Half Acre is forced to change the name again, after another brewery raised concerns that Senita India Pale Ale might be too close in branding to another beer. That named got Half Acre a Cease & Desist letter.

Now, fans will know this storied IPA as Half Acre GoneAway IPA. Hopefully this beer doesn’t warrant another C&D letter.

Half Acre Space IPA Bottled for 1st Time

Half Acre Space IPA

Half Acre Space IPA joins the brewery’s lineup on March 27th. The recently draft-only beer is getting a temporary upgrade to 22oz bottles.

Half Acre Space IPA is citra hop forward IPA, brewed for a brewery friend that is no longer with us.

We brew this beer in honor of a Half Acre friend that passed.  Space was his nickname as a blazing young man. In his older years, he found himself teamed up with two Siberian Huskies.  Not a family man, he hung with his Huskies, Moon and Luna, as equals.  He’d usually come to our brewery after lunch time, Moon and Luna in his jeep, chew the fat for a while and pick up some beer.  He’d take off to grab tacos or Pizza for all three of them and then they’d head home for an easy night…

Half Acre Space IPA will be available in 22oz bottles starting March 27th, $8.99.

Style: IPA
Hops: Citra
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft

Release: 3/27/15

7% ABV
