As a traditional spring seasonal, the Helles Bock is meant to ring in the end of winter but with reminders of the cold weather just passed. It’s a light, crisp style but also a strong one, typically with a more significant ABV, malt presence, and a more hop-forward approach than other bocks.

Our “June Bock” Helles Bock stands out for another reason. It’s meant to commemorate a special day for our brewer Dan – his 20-year wedding anniversary.

Being the couple’s favorite brew, this Helles Bock is 20 years in the making. Crisp and golden, it’s got a toasty, bready character and a sweetness nicely balanced by the herbal, early presence of Saaz hops.

Drink one and raise a glass to 20 more.

A 20-Year Collaboration Helles Bock will be on tap at 3 PM.

We’re kicking off 105.3 The Fan‘s Brew Crew Tour with the GBag Nation on Thursday.

The GBag Nation will be broadcasting live from the brewery with giveaways and more from 2 PM to 7 PM.

While they last, we’ll have official Brew Crew Tour pint glasses to give out starting at 2 PM with any pint from our 40-tap wall of craft beer, cider, and hard seltzer.

To show off your TOLO status, PINT Services will be live screen printing on the patio starting at 4 PM with a custom Brew Crew Tour shirt you can snag this night only. And 20% of proceeds from the t-shirt sales will go to the North Texas Food Bank.

Come pre-game with us as we celebrate the beginning of the Brew Crew Tour, pre-game for the Mavericks Game 5 against the Warriors, and ring in another Thirsty Thursday.

Brewed with Omega’s Gulo yeast designed to bring out orange-marmalade and peach character without the Belgian “spicy” phenolic notes, this “king of Belgian and French beer styles” is our ode to summer (or Zomer).

Its complex malt bill gives it a robust breadiness with subtle toasted marshmallow and woodsiness. The bright citrus marmalade character is entirely yeast driven with a lot of aroma and background notes of peach.

A Citra and El Dorado dry hop augments the citrus character with background tropical and melon aromas and adds a crisp, freshness to the finish.

Bière de Garde translates to “beer for keeping” as they were typically brewed and kept through the summer to serve as sustenance for those working the farm.

Bière de Gardes are known for how well they pair with food, and this beer is no exception. It is an excellent complement to a simple roasted chicken – or a flavorful fried chicken if we don’t say so ourselves. Pair it with anything on our menu on your next visit.

Marmalade Zomer will be on tap by 3 PM and available for pints, flights, growler fills and crowlers.

This isn’t happening in a galaxy far, far away. It’s happening right here in Dallas, Texas.

We did our first experiment with a new yeast developed by Omega Yeast they call Star Party.

Star Party is “Thiolized” to bring aromas of passion fruit, pink guava, and zesty citrus to the forefront in hop-forward beers, especially when hops that are more susceptible to “thiolization” are present.

We designed this West Coast-Style IPA to take advantage of those special powers. With Cascade, Citra, and Idaho Gem hop additions, this big IPA is both juicy and noticeably bitter. Cascade and Citra play nicely with the yeast to bring out zesty, fresh grapefruit, and citrus in both the aroma and the flavor while Idaho Gem provides an earthy aroma with subtle notes of cherry.

With a release right next to Star Wars Day (make that Star Wars Week), we had to go with a name that embraced the agility and speed with which this beer has won us over. And, so, a Jedi Starfighter was born. As the fastest and most lethal craft in the fleet, the Jedi Starfighter is not to be meddled with in space.

Light in color but big in flavor, we think you’ll find that this Starfighter is one you want to get behind. After all, it’s the galaxy’s only hope.

Jedi Starfighter will be on tap by 2 PM Friday.

How much peanut butter can we put in a stout before you tell us we’re Going Nuts?

That’s the question we attempted to answer with this beer, brewed with our friends at Trinity Forest Brewing. We think we found the answer.

With a dark malt base of roasted coffee and subtle chocolate and a deep black color, this stout was delightful in texture and flavor before we got to business.

With more than 6 pounds per barrel of crushed peanuts, some peanut butter, and an entire container of peanut butter extract, our stout might have become liquid peanut butter if we kept going.

Peanut butter dominates the aroma, but it smells sweeter than the taste reveals. The depth of peanuts and peanut butter will draw you in, but there’s still a substantial profile of roasted barley, chocolate, and fresh coffee notes present.

We think this beer shows you that when we Go Nuts, we go nuts, especially when we get to brew with friends!

Going Nuts Peanut Butter Stout will be on tap at 2 PM Thursday!

There’s no need to fear those “Winter Storm Warning” interruptions on your TV. This announcement is one you don’t want to miss.

We spent “Frigid February” in North Texas brewing two collaborations with our friends at Cowtown Brewing. Both were Cold IPAs, but we put our own spin on each version.

Cold IPA is a new beer style introduced by Wayfinder in Oregon. While you can draw comparisons, it is neither a India Pale Lager or a Dry-Hopped Lager. It has its own flair.

The primary characteristic of a Cold IPA is that is brewed with a lager yeast, typically at a higher temperature than that yeast expects. The results are magical. They have that “crispy boi” clean finish while still bursting with hop character.

In our collaborations with Cowtown Brewing in Fort Worth, we each used the same base recipe – light and ready to get crispy, and we both used Centennial hops to give the beer that pine and citrus base. Where we differed was the dry hop and the yeast.

On-site at Cowtown, we brewed Winter Storm Warning (Fort Worth) with experimental hop HBC 586 and fermented it with a clean lager yeast a few degrees avove it’s normal lager temperature. Mango, guava, lychee, and citrus are pouring out of this beer with very low bitterness and a clean, crispy finish. Cowtown will be releasing this one today (March 18) at 11 AM!

We brewed Winter Storm Warning (Dallas) here at On Rotation a few days later with a different experimental hop, HBC 522, and a lager yeast specifically designed to accentuate the hops. HBC 522, thus far in its use, is known for bitter citrus, juicy grapefruit, floral, and pine needle aromas and flavors.

After the dry hop, we have to say the grapefruit and pine are both shining through in this light, crispy beer. It’s clean and crushable with a present but not overpowering bitterness. And that tropical note backed by a piney, resinous aroma and bitterness is as magical as pulling a rabit out of a hat.

If you haven’t tried yourself a Cold IPA yet, now’s your chance. We think one of these two is going to be your new favorite. Get out to try them both this weekend!

Green beer? Oh, we have it. Join us for some green – or decidedly NOT green if that’s your preference – beer, Irish pub music, and festivities. We have a stacked tap list and a lot of merriment.
