In The Shadows

Our small batch series, IN THE SHADOWS has come to light. We expand upon what we learn on a daily basis by experimenting with unique flavor profiles, focused recipes, and concentrated fervor. IN THE SHADOWS, we create.

Our first release will be this Friday, November 4, 11:00am. We will be releasing The Teddy Bear Picnic, an IPA with Mango- and Drip, a Double Dry Hopped Double IPA. Both of these beers have been intensely dry hopped and are some of our juiciest beers to date. 4pks of The Teddy Bear Picnic are available for $13, 4pks of Drip are available for $14. Both have a limit of 2 4pks per person. This is a very limited release. 

The Teddy Bear Picnic- India Pale Ale with Mango:
Packed with over 400lbs of oats (the most we’ve ever used in any of our IPA's) this hoppy 6% IPA rounds out with a nice bit of malt sweetness. We added a touch of Mango puree which comes through beautifully on the nose in front of the 22lbs mix of Citra, Mosaic, and Cascade that we dry hopped it with.

DRIP- Double Dry Hopped Double India Pale Ale is a hoppy, bitter 8.4% West Coast style DIPA. Expect a multitude of complex flavors including pine and deep grapefruit rind, and a very nice resinous mouthfeel. Round 1 of dry hopping was with Mosaic, and Round 2 of dry hopping was with Citra and Cascade. This beer may not be for those who can’t contend w hoppy bitterness- don’t say we didn’t warn you;).

Only 15 barrels were brewed of each of these beers. 

Flights now available

Get ready for takeoff- we are now offering flights and individual 5oz tasters at both our Hammond brewpub and Gary Taproom. A huge thanks to Ben's Woodshop for these beautiful flight decks.

Bijoux, a collab with The Kernel Brewery of London.

We are excited to release ‘Bijoux’, a Grisette style ale with Brett that we brewed in collaboration with The Kernel Brewery of London. Similar to a saison, this 5% beer is bright and refreshing with a complex flavor profile. This is a very small batch and available on draft at our Hammond brewpub.

BA HUNTER RECALL

11 months ago on Friday, November 13th 2015 we packaged and sold BA Hunter from our Gary, IN location. Some folks made the choice to and enjoy it and drink it at its freshest state- as was stated on the bottle label (Fresh is best, do not cellar). Others made the choice to cellar the beer against our recommendation before opening. Sad to say that some of these cellared bottles are showing their age- and not in a good way as we have received a few complaints of off flavors. At the same time, we have had some customers whose cellared bottles were fine and did not have any off flavors. We have sent a few bottles to an independent lab for testing and they all have come back clean.  

First and foremost we value our customers and the quality of beer we produce, so I have made the choice to listen to our customers and make it right by recalling BA Hunter in 22oz bottles that were sold on Friday, November 13th from our Gary, Indiana location. Return your empty or full bottle with this SKU (730957374588) to our Hammond location (5417 Oakley Ave, Hammond, IN 46320) and we will issue you a gift certificate for the full value of the bottle with no questions asked. You will have until the end of 2016 to turn in your bottles and receive your gift certificate. Bottles must be returned in person, we will not be shipping out any gift certificates. If you have any further questions or comments please send them to wade@18thstreetbrewery.com or go to our website for FAQ's on BA Hunter.

GROWLER FILLS UPDATED!

Starting Friday, Sept 23rd, we will be filling 32oz and 64oz growlers with all current draft pours (except Sour Note and Guest Drafts) that are below 8.5%. Prices will be in 2 tiers, either $10 and $17 or $12 and $24.

Merch bundles

Our new work shirts have been flying out the door. With the few we have left we thought we'd bunch em up in a bundle for ya. You get an official Dickies brand work shirt, a 13oz Willi glass, a coozie, and a sticker- all for $50! Both MEN's and WOMEN's bundles are available. Get on it here in our Merch shop!

FIRKIN FRIDAY Sept 23rd

Fund-raising bike ride now 11am!

Our fund-raising bike ride will start at our Hammond brewpub (5417 Oakley Ave) at 11am. The ride is 10 miles down the beautiful Monon Trail (5 miles there, 5 miles back).
