Tired Hands Cans Releasing Today – 1/7/16

Tired HandsLocal Ardmore brewing gem, Tired Hands, is entering the 16oz canned IPA game today with the release of HopHands, their house pale, and Alien Church, an IPA I recently gave a rather positive review. Both are available at the Fermenteria starting today (1/7/16) for $14 a four pack (HopHands) and $16 a four pack (Alien Church).

Customers can buy up to a case of each (that’s $84 and $96 a case respectively for those that don’t like them math numbers.) This is sure to be a hot item, especially in the secondary beer trade market, so head down prior to the 4:20pm launch to secure yours.

All You Need to Know

Brewery: Tired Hands Brewing
Style: Oat IPA
ABV: 6.5%
My Cost: $6 (draft)
Glassware: Pint
Temp: 50°F
Availability: Varies
Purchased@: The Fridge

Quick Take: For me, Alien Church really captures the essence of Tired Hands IPAs in a simple, very drinkable form. This isn’t the best IPA they do, but it’s the perfect starting place to get a sense of what their beer is about. It’s on the upper end of sessionable, but a growler of this is sure to make any IPA drinker’s day.

Tired Hands Brewing – Guillemot Nebula (Batch 2)

GuillemotAll You Need to Know

Brewery: Tired Hands Brewing
Style: Dark Saison
ABV: 8.5%
My Cost: Nothing
Actual Cost: $15 (I’m told)
Glassware: Tulip
Temp: 50°F
Availability: Infrequently
Purchased@: Tired Hands
Released: April 2015
Drank: May 2015

Quick Take: One of the better, more complex beers I’ve had in quite some time. You need to have some adventure in you as the flavor profile could be considered challenging, but that’s nothing new for this brewery. While this is more a successful novelty than pinnacle of their efforts, Guillemot contains the spirit of the brewery in a 500ml bottle.
