Our next move

On Rotation at Braniff Centre Rendering

As some of you know, we’ve been looking for a new home for On Rotation for more than two years. We love our little spot in Lakewood, but we have run out of room to expand brewing operations.

In our two-year journey, we have seen a lot of spaces and talked to a lot of landlords. We’ve been very close on multiple properties being the new home of our small batch brewery. Now, we’re excited to say we found THE ONE.

What is a nanobrewery?

On Rotation Nanobrewery

If you’ve visited our taproom, you know we often refer to On Rotation as a nanobrewery, but what the heck does that even mean?

Well, believe it or not, there’s somewhat of a hierarchy within craft beer brewing based on the volume of beer you produce each year.

How to Make a Craft Beer Beermosa

Craft Beer Beermosas on Pink

A mimosa can be a great way to start the day. Any day really. But there is some nuance to getting it just right — if you are into doing it right, that is.

With such a simple recipe, it’s important that all the ingredients are of the highest quality.

A traditional mimosa is just orange juice and sparkling wine or champagne. When you can, using freshly-squeezed orange juice makes a difference.

And there’s another way to “level up” your mimosa to an even fresher and more adventurous type of ‘mosa concoction. Try substituting craft beer in place of the sparkling wine.

Save On Rotation & Save Texas Breweries #SaveTexasBreweries

Save Texas Breweries

Today we want to talk about a subject that’s near and dear to our hearts — saving us.⁠

In all seriousness, folks, we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for your daily support and those of you who have gone out of your way to encourage others to check out our beers amidst this pandemic.⁠ Order online now!

As we shared on Instagram, this latest shutdown is affecting the Texas craft beer industry more than most as many Texas brewing operations have been classified as “bars” and shutdown regardless of their safety protocols in the face of COVID-19.⁠

Dark and Stormy Beer Cocktail Recipe with an IPA

Dark and Stormy IPA Beer Cocktail

One of our favorite cocktails when we travel is the Dark ‘N’ Stormy.

If you take a beach vacation, you’re likely to find, as we did, that many of the cocktails offered are extremely fruity or overwhelmingly sweet.

The Dark ‘N’ Stormy is a perfect counter to that. It’s ginger-y and citrus rich with a smoky sweetness thanks to the dark rum that’s just right when you’re going to be in the sun.

If you want to make it even better, add beer!

A Spicy Margarita Beer Cocktail Recipe with Jalapeño Saison

Jalapeno Beer Margarita

We’re all drinking at home a lot more right now. That’s the reality of the situation when our craft beer bars and beloved breweries are mandated to operate for to-go sales only.

But there is one advantage to drinking craft beer in the comfort of your own home. You can get creative and mix your own beer cocktails or, in this case, a beerita.

Here at Team On Rotation, we are big fans of spicy drinks, as you might imagine from a brewery that produces a Jalapeño Saison on the regular, and this little concoction is one we like to mix up when margaritas are on the menu.

What is a crowler?

32oz On Rotation Crowler

A crowler is a 32oz can you may purchase to take beer to-go. In taprooms and craft beer bars that offer crowlers, you can typically have the can filled with the beer or beverage of your choice and sealed on-demand.

Once sealed, you can take the crowler home, store it in your fridge, and open it whenever you’re ready. Crowlers open just like a beer or soda can with a tab on the top so you don’t have to have any additional tools.

But where did these magical devices come from and who created them?

2018 in Review

2018 Beer Releases by Style

In 2017, we told our fans that we were going to give them a beer release every week. And we did. We released 48 new beers and brought back 5 returning favorites throughout the year.

For 2018, we set out to best that record. And we did.
