Id No. 18

One of Sigmund Freud’s three divisions of the psyche is the id, which represents the instinctual drives of the psychic apparatus. The Id series reflects our brewery’s needs, wants, desires and impulses. Each release is the actualization of styles, ingredients, techniques and flavors sparked by our present state of mind. These beers are intended to be limited, one-time releases, and tomorrow’s spontaneity will be our impetus.

Each year we get a singular opportunity to celebrate the harvest by brewing with heaping piles of fresh-off-the-bine wet hops. We took a short drive up I-35 to collect them from Kansas Hop Co farm within hours of being picked, turned around and brewed them into this beer the very next morning. In collaboration with The Big Friendly, we bring you an IPA that’s as fresh as it gets.
