The righteously radical rollout of 2018 continues for us here at SOB. Feel the angst, feel the vibe. More beers new and returning are en route over the next several weeks as we continue to push ourselves and bring you this fiery array.

Soon you will see the return of an SOB legacy, some amaranthine isness, and a spark to to the debate of sizeism in this country. We’ll learn what’s glitter is really more of a pale gold, hand you mallows upon mallows, and introduce you to a long forgotten style that had a revival with the fall of the Iron Curtain. All but one of these beers will be bottled or canned. We hope you’ve been enjoying our beer year so far, because we sure as hell are.

Punk Rock for Rich Kids

Single Hop Belgian-Style Pale Ale
5.5% ABV
As demand and production for Snaggletooth Bandana, Lü, Butterfly Flashmob, and Old Faithorn vaulted heading into early 2017 we were forced to create tank space and kill one of our favorite sons. For years Punk Rock for Rich Kids was a staple at SOB. A warm golden-colored body married together the floral peach and stonefruit offering of the hops. Mild Belgian phenolics adored by those who tend not to like Belgian yeast and a considerate bitterness. As the saying goes, ’twas ever thus.

Istigkeit

American Brown Ale
6.7% ABV
What does it mean to “be,” to “exist”? What is “is-ness”? Sit down with Meister Eckhart, open your mind’s eye, and debate the reality of reality with this hoppy American Brown ale. Oaky, chocolate, leather, and floral – This beer just totally is.

Sizeist Iota

Double Dry-Hopped NE-Style IPA
6.5% ABV
Over about fifty-five Lü cans at the institution that is Bukowski Tavern in Boston we determined that the gameplay design of the pocket-sized board game Iota, in our opinion, is sizeist. The game is solid and will keep you mathematically sharp in a way that your high school algebra teacher would be proud of, but the shortest person playing starts the game. Through trial and error we all determined that person cannot win. We aren’t sure what the game’s creators have against the vertically challenged, but dammit that ain’t right. To offset the sizeism this beer features a massive tower of killer experimental hop additions on a stretched spine of Conan yeast. True to style, everything but small in flavor, and a reminder that regardless of anything, all us have to power and fortitude to stand tall.

Thank you for your attention. You are wonderful.

Sometimes at the brewery we listen to rock and sometimes we listen to rap. On occasion you might hear some jazz, pop, or a splash of early punk. The important thing to realize is that we’re always lively. Always accomplishing something. Always planning for what we hope will not be your favorite new thing, or the brewery’s favorite new thing, but our favorite thing together. Never complacent and always adapting. Changing the world, probably.
