Last Friday, the line of beer drinkers awaiting the noon release of the brew collaboration between Wren House Brewing Company and Little Miss BBQ in Phoenix stretched around the block. We previewed the beer a few months ago. It's the latest entry in Wren House's pie-themed "Pie Thief" series.
Wren House is a proud participant of the Arizona Pure Water Brew Challenge created by Pima County's Southwest Water Campus. This innovative project helps us all become more comfortable with the amazing technologies that enable recycled water reuse in drinking water applications and ensure a sustainable water supply for the arid southwest. We brewed "Hydrologic Pale Ale" as tribute to this cause and entered into the competition. Come try it while it lasts in the taproom!
Wren House is proud to be a member of Audubon Arizona's Western Rivers Action Network. Growing our craft in the desert southwest relies on long term sustainable management of our rivers, and WRAN is committed to making this happen. Please join us in taking action on this issue by signing the Petition for Healthier Arizona Rivers
From DRAFT Magazine, "Wren House Brewing Co.’s Who Hit John Grand Cru is a tasty beer with an uncommon twist: The 13% ABV imperial porter was aged in barrels that once held a special cuvee version of Berry White..."
Every year since 2014, the Arizona Society of Homebrewers (the nation’s biggest homebrew club) hosts and judges a competition among all the breweries pouring at the Strong Beer Festival, awarding medals in seven general categories and naming a sole beer Best in Show. This year, Happy Camp was that beer. It’s easy to see why the hazy imperial IPA won—its intense nose is like a mango-strawberry-grapefruit smoothie, while a sip adds peach pits and tangerine peel to the blend atop soft, sweet breakfast pastries. The dry finish with citrus peel bitterness is slightly higher than we see in most New England IPAs, but the finish is squeaky-clean and the 8.6% ABV is nigh unnoticeable.
