Congratulations. You're Crushin' It.

A can of Whirlpool is like a pat on the back. A fist bump. A high five. When you're crushin' it out there, this explosively juicy, infinitely crushable deliciousness is the perfect reward.

Want some little known trivia about this beer? Here we go.

Our first brew of Whirlpool was a 60 gallon batch brewed in 2014. It was a side project. Total experiment. We were messing with an experimental whirlpooling process where nearly all the hops were added after the boil (aka, a weird process). Hopes were low, and we actually almost forgot to keg it.

We didn't forget, though, and kegged it up. "Whirlpool" we called it, and tapped it in our tiny tasting room, available in growlers only. Again, hopes were low. It sold out almost immediately and every person who tasted it has the same "Woah!" reaction. We had the same reaction and decided to make more. We ended up making a lot more.

Its recipe today is essentially the same as that first batch - a malt bill of wheat, oats, and barley, generously hopped and dry-hopped with Mosaic and Ella. It's super soft and citrusy, hazy and juicy, with shockingly minimal bitterness. We taste big notes of clementine and grapefruit. It's one of those beers that veteran craft drinkers appreciate as deeply as "I don't really like craft beer" drinkers. It seems to have a little something for everyone.

Even better - it's available in 12-packs in MA, NH, CT, ME, NY, and PA! Check out our Beer Finder at to find a 12-pack near you.
