We are constantly experimenting with different styles and new ingredients on our 10 gallon pilot system. Whether it's one of our brewers trying to fine tune a recipe, or a tasting room ambassador just developing their first recipe, our pilot system is available for anyone on staff to use. When we're happy with the results of a pilot batch we share them in our tasting room; and if customer feedback and brewery sensory assessment are really positive, the beer can earn a spot in our Sputnik Series! Sputnik is the nickname of our 7bbl fermentor, the smallest in our fleet. Each Sputnik beer will only be available for draft pours and growler fills in our tasting room, as well as at a limited number of establishments in the Portland area. These 7bbl batches don't last long, though, so get some while they're around!
