(pronounced uh-mair-tzih-can as in “America” or “air”)

Honky Tonk Angel clocks in at a whopping 11.3% ABV, so expect a little heat on the finish to cut through the rich oakiness and malt.

When Good Nature opened in 2012, there were only 65 breweries in all of New York State, and most focused on making a few great core beers. Just 6 years later, we are fast approaching 500 NY breweries, and with that comes thousands of new beers. We’ll never stop making your favorite GNB brews, but we’ve created a a series in response to the ever changing rotational nature of Craft Beer. Every 6 weeks, you can expect a new limited release IPA. Enjoy the robust juicy flavors of our new IPA series, featuring different hops from all over the world, but always with New York State malt and hops as the backbone of each recipe.

Beers in this series will be available on draft and eventually 4-packs of 16oz cans (stay tuned!) at the Farm Brewery, the Broad Street Tap Room and a select bars, restaurants and stores where Good Nature Beers are carried (ask at your favorite spot!).

The first beer in the Rotation Nation series, Rotation Nation I is a hazy, juicy New England Style IPA. The foundation of the recipe is New York State malt and hops, but the aroma and bold fruity flavors are punched up by the Citra and Mosaic hops used to double-dry-hop the brew near the end of its journey. This late addition of hops ensures that the delicate oils from the hops make it into each pint glass for the freshest tasting beer around.

Alcohol (ABV): 6.2%

wortisbond

An innovative collaboration with Ithaca Brewing Co., & first ever in the “Wort is Bond” Series. A variation on the pale Belgian style known as saison, often called “farmhouse ale” due to their history of being brewed in the countryside. Tart, with complex “funky” and fruity/earthy notes from the yeast and a grainy, nutty character from the blend of malts. Highly attenuated and fairly bitter, with a floral hop character mostly obscured by the yeast. Brewed almost exclusively with NY State grown ingredients.
