Hops are the green cone-shaped flowers, or “inflorescence,” of the Humulus lupulus plant, which is technically a weed.

Chubby Mermaid Brewing Co. will employ barrel aged beers, with both Oak with previous spirits and Maple Wood barrels with previous maple syrup. these two very different barrels create two very distinct beers.
Chubby Mermaid brewing is a 3.5 barrel two vessel insulated brewhouse that employs reverse osmosis (RO) water for the mashing process. Our beer are generally fermented under pressure in 500L conical insulated jacketed fermenters. The cellaring is done with food grade glycol temperature controlled via the insulated jacket on each conical fermenter. Once fermentation is complete we blow the cone, and pressure transfer to keg for serving. Some beers are direct served from these same fermenters. Some beer will be diverted to caning for Point of Sale.
