About Hops and Grain Brewing

WELCOME to the Hops & Grain Brewery, where we love to make beer and we love the beer we make. We’re living one day at a time, living with a passion for our craft and a passion for sustainability, living the dream.

At the Hops & Grain Brewery we take very seriously our environmental impact. We’re trying to make our community greener through giving to local environmental non-profits and supporting our local community growers and producers. We even make Brew Biscuit dog treats from our spent brewing grains! Good planets are hard to find, let’s do our part to take care of this one!

Alt-eration: ALT-ERATION is brewed using old world techniques, high quality German malts and noble hop varieties. We blend a base of German Pilsner malt with hefty portions of Munich, Vienna and just a touch of de-bittered black malt. Alt-eration undergoes a multiple temperature mashing program which produces a classic upfront maltiness with a clean and crisp finish. Hopped with noble hop varieties to provide a classy bitterness with a clean and spicy hop flavor and aroma. Malty upfront followed by a smooth mouthful transitioning to a splendidly classy bitter finish.

Pale Dog: PALE DOG is an homage to our chairman. Full of character with a dry and crisp finish. We start with a base of the highest quality 2 Row malted barley we could find. We blend a small amount of Vienna and Caramel malts to add distinct character and mouthfeel, then mashed for both attenuation and a balanced malty sweetness. Throughout the boil we use all domestic hop varieties that are higher in alpha acids and lend toward flavors of grapefruit and tropical fruit. Starting with Summit and transitioning to Columbus and Cascade, the kettle hop additions provide an enticing aroma, noticeable but balanced bitterness and finish with a whollop of hop flavor.
