READ ON TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR FLAGSHIP HAZY PALE ALE
What Exactly is a Unicorn Girl?
An homage to the two real Unicorn Girls, our beloved hazy and juicy American Pale Ale is brewed in honor of our owners’ twin daughters who at an early age, before BBP was born, called themselves the Unicorn Girls.
In addition to Unicorn Girls, we have used a number of fun sayings that our owners wrote down from the early days of their daughters’ lives as beer names. Random comments like “Can I Put the Hops In?”, “From Making Dreams”, “I Came Over to Celebrate” and “Be Quiet in the Castle” are records of quick wit developed at a young age. Through these names we continue to celebrate the family and community focus of our brewery all while having a little fun.
Unicorn Fact: Ben Douglass is the talented designer behind the UG label (he develops the remainder of BBP’s labels as well). Partnering with Ben, we have designed a simple yet present brand for UG which includes a prominent and informative front portion of the label, Unicorn and hop plant vectors on the side for a touch of flair, and enough information on the back to lead you here. We hope you enjoy it!
Why is unicorn girls Important?
We consider Unicorn Girls our “wide-net” beer that captures the hearts and taste buds of a vast array of drinkers. Light and crushable yet present and flavorful, it appeals to casual beer drinkers and craft beer aficionados alike.
When they were young homebrewing entrepreneurs, Chelsey and Mike rarely brewed the same beer twice. The beer that ultimately became Unicorn Girls was brewed numerous times - getting this beer right was important to them. A beer that their family and craft beer friends can drink together, a beer that creates community, and focuses on celebrating togetherness, not differences. This is that beer.
Unicorn Fact: While the recipe for this beer had to be adjusted for commercial scale, the ingredients and essence have remained mostly the same since the first home brewed batches.
HOW IS UNICORN GIRLS BREWED?
Similar to most beers, Unicorn Girls is brewed with malted grain, hops, yeast and water with an addition of milk sugar for a touch of sweetness. The grain base is a blend of American Pale Malt, both white and flaked wheat and oats creating a soft and pillowy canvas for the fruit forward flavors and aromas to shine.
Unicorn Fact: Did you know that beer contains about 95% water by volume? In our local area, we are lucky to have soft and mineral full water that accentuates the profile of most hazy-style beers. The water profile of Unicorn Girls rounds out the backbone of the beer to create an easy drinking experience.
The beer is brewed and dry hopped with Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic and Huell Melon hops. Aromas of melon and strawberry fill the room when poured with similar flavors that are accompanied by a subtle kiss of citrus.
