Demand has been strong! We’ve sold out of all our beers during the last two public sales days, and we expect more of the same for our
official opening tomorrow, October 29th. Usually we’ll have three or more brews on tap, all to-go, in 32 oz. howlers and 64 oz. growlers. 

IMG_8041At this point, Sleepwalker is made up of 32 investors from the Lansing area, and we’re over halfway to our initial goal of $125,000. The taproom at the Allen Market Place is our first public point of sale, and our last phase in securing the capital we need for our permanent production facility and pub in Lansing. If you’re interested in learning more, email Matt (matt@drinksleepwalker.com) or Jeremy (jeremy@drinksleepwalker.com). Come on down, and we’ll see you on Wednesdays!

Hop season is upon us here in Mid-Michigan, and this year’s bounty is plentiful. Over the weekend we were approached by several folks in the area that were growing hops, and had some to offer. We decided to grab some and whip up a harvest IPA.

Rita O’Brien from the Hunter Park Garden House, and Joe McDaniels were kind enough to offer up some of their hops, just over a pound each of Cascade and Columbus hops. Over two pounds of fresh hops filled a 5 gallon bucket about two-thirds full, and the smell was amazing! As you can see, we used them throughout the brew session, from mash to first wort, and throughout the boil.

The majority of the hops were used as late additions, and by the end of the boil there was an enormous hop oil slick! A little bit is typical when using dry hops, but this was intense. After we whirlpooled, the pile of spent hops was a gooey, sticky mess. Can’t wait to try this one. You may be able to sample one like it soon!
