May 4th Fiction Beer Releases: 'I will not drink any f***ing Merlot'

San Francisco Style Brut IPA draft release! Inspired by the novel “Sideways” by Rex Picket, ‘I will not drink any fucking Merlot’ is a play on a Champagne-like beer. Extremely dry with a punch of hop flavor and aroma from excessive dry hopping with low-perceived bitterness. Hallertau Blanc, Rakua, and Motueka hops shine through in this with flavors of white grapes, apricot, and citrus give this beer a bubbly personality that folks are sure to love.   6% ABV

Celebrating Spring with Two Amazing Can Releases!

Spring is officially here!  And Fiction Beer is releasing two NEW beers in 16oz cans for the first time. Join Fiction Beer on Saturday, March 24 at our taproom for the release of DDH Beta Capsule and The Flaconer.

‘Beta Capsule’, inspired by Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One, is a double dry hopped New England Imperial IPA.  The dry hops include nearly 2 lbs per bbl of Vic Secret as well as a bunch of Citra and Mosaic 🍊🍑.  A kung fu knockout of juicy tropical melon and citrus aroma with a soft, pillowy mouthfeel.  Deceptively drinkable at 8.5% ABV

‘The Falconer’, inspired by Helen MacDonald’s H is for Hawk, is a traditional saison using a blend of yeasts to accentuate the fruit esters over the spicy phenolics. Complementing the natural fruit character from the yeast we added 2+ lbs per bbl of Motueka dry hops.   Crisp, dry and full of amazing yeast character which is well complemented by the lemon and lime from our excessive dry hopping🍋.  A smooth 5.8% ABV keeps this beer crushable and perfect for the first warm sunny days of the season.
