Is a taproom the same thing as a bar?

Do you have to be 21+ to come to a brewery?

You do not. You do however have to be 21 or over to consume the beer.

What is a flight?

A flight is for those of us with a fear of commitment or if you want to try everything and still be able to stand. The origin of the term “flight” is kind of a mystery in the beer world. A flight is a sampler where you may choose up to 4 different beers in smaller, accessible 5oz pours.

A crowler is an aluminum can filled with draft beer and sealed for transport home. Fractal Brewing Project will offer crowlers in 12oz, 16oz, and 19.2oz sizes.

What is a growler?

A growler is a large container, often glass or ceramic, used for transporting draft beer. Fractal Brewing Project will not be selling or filling growlers. Be sure and grab a crowler and give it a try. You’ll understand why.

How do I know how strong a beer is?

Beers typically have an alcohol by volume (this is a measurement, abbreviated as ABV) content of between 4 – 6%. Craft beer alcohol content can vary widely. Each beer on our menu will be listed with it’s ABV %. The higher the percentage, the more alcohol is in the brew.

What is kombucha?

Kombucha is a sweet, fizzy drink made of yeast, sugar, fermented tea and includes live micro-organisms. It is a fermented food (like cultured yogurt, cheese, kefir, kimchi, and sauerkraut). You make kombucha by brewing sugar, black or green tea, and a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. Most kombucha (including that served at Fractal Brewing Project) is classified as nonalcoholic, which means that it falls under the federal 0.5% alcohol by volume (A.B.V.) threshold. Known as the “tea of immortality,” it originated in China more than 2,000 years ago.
