Brewing Pie Whole with Right Brain

Brewing Pie Whole with Right Brain Brewery

 

This weekend two of my favorite things came together in a wonderful way at Right Brain Brewery; Right Brain invited me to brew their Pie Whole beer with them. This release ended up being a pecan pie beer, with the beer straight from Right Brain’s neighbor, Grand Traverse Pie Company.

 

I spent the day with Nick and the Right Brain crew and not only thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip but learned quite a bit. One of the biggest takeaways from the weekend was Right Brain’s culture that promotes a sense of community with other local businesses and focuses on actively participating in the creative, artistic and culinary side of brewing. We started the day sipping on the same coffee they use in their award-winning CEO Stout and tasting the pecan pie they picked up the night before from the bakery. Later on, I helped to shovel the used mash into containers for a local farmer to take for cow feed who, in turn, shares some of his beef. We ended the day at the bar surrounded by local artists’ work and live music thanks to Right Brain’s Art Bomb party.

 


The entire day ended up being an exploration of the senses. From smelling hop varieties, chewing on malts, tasting barrel-aged beers to repeatedly being surrounded by an amazing aroma, the brewing process ended up being a full-sensory experience.

 

If you see Pie Whole make sure to try it, knowing it was brewed with love from me to you.

 

Also, Right Brain crew, you all rock. Thanks again.
