IRVINE, CA Oct 19, 2016 - Evans Brewing Company (OTCQB: ALES), a producer of award-winning craft beers and owner/operator of The Public House restaurant and tasting room, today announced that the company has produced the first beer in its small batch brewing system -- 2 variations of Evans Brewing Company's Original Pilsner, which are expected to be available at The Public House.
The variations of The Original include one using German dry hops and another using American dry hops.
Evans Brewing Company's small batch brewing system was implemented to develop and test different versions of a single beer, some of which may ultimately be produced on a larger scale in the company's Orange County, California brewery.
The pilot system utilizes three 5-barrel tanks to allow for up to three variations of the same base liquid. Director of Brewing Kevin Hammons is using the system to experiment with different yeasts, flavor additions, dry hopping and/or other ingredients or process.
With The Public House now open, its customers will be among the first to try and provide feedback on these small batch offerings.
"The small batch tanks are a great way for us to try new things in the brewery," said Hammons. "The Original is just the first beer that we expect to create different versions in the coming months, and we can't wait for our customers at The Public House to let us know they think about each variation."
