I went to my neighborhood bottleshop today and noticed some new beers from a brewery I had never heard of called Hello Friend.
Normally I am too tight with my beer budget to risk trying something from new breweries, but today I had some rare cash to take chances with.
I look for beers with Mosaic hops first off and this brewery had several with Mosaic – if you’re a brewery that uses a lot of Mosaic you are already pulling me in, brother.
Over the past few days I have had four of their beers. One I forgot 🤷🏻♂️, but the other three were:
- I’ll At Ease.
- Nothing’s Never Forever.
- Till I Crumble.
If I had to choose my favorite of the four three… Till I Crumble. But they are all nice beers.
Come to find out this is a brewery operating out of Berkeley’s the Rare Barrel. They are on the property but have their own “area” I suppose.
I think it’s a good idea to make a separate brewery in your own brewery, if you want to make a different style beer with its own marketing.
If you are interested and in California, you can get their beer here.
