Paul discusses business, beer, and all things Beer On Earth with host, Molly O'Brien, in a 15 minute segment on GoLocalProv.
We began our journey with a 30 quart stockpot we bought at Job Lot, a mesh bag, a bunch of books about beer, and an intense desire to make beers that we could be proud of. Focused on brewing styles not typically found in the region, we researched ingredients, refined recipes, and applied feedback to brew the best beer possible on our 3-gallon system week after week.
After taking home gold and bronze medals at the 2017 New England Regional Homebrew Competition in Manchester, NH, we knew that we were heading in the right direction. With a new-found confidence, we secured a location for our brewery, applied for our licenses, and ordered a 3-barrel brew system with a handful of fermenters.
BEER ON EARTH is on a never-ending mission to produce the highest quality ales and lagers available in New England while providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere to consume these beers at the tap room of our brewery in North Kingstown, RI. Working with local artist, Paul Endres Jr., BOE plans to deliver a unique visual aesthetic that will perfectly combine our love for beer, art, and life.
We wanted to create a beer that is a cross between a traditional west coast IPA and the ever popular New England style “juice-bomb” IPAs. We used a classic California Ale yeast strain, and a grain bill of Marris Otter and Vienna for a nice malt backbone. For hops we used Columbus for bittering, and generous amounts of Chinook and Simcoe as whirlpool and dry hop additions. The result is a “pine-bomb” that is smooth and drinkable, and bursting with piney and resinous aroma and flavor.
Smooth and roasty, this beer is a perfect marriage of our porter and cold brew coffee. Chocolate Rye, Black and Crystal Malts, and Pale Malt provide a pleasantly sweet grain bill that is balanced by the addition of hops from the United Kingdom. Ground coffee is added after fermentation to cold brew in the tank, complimenting the chocolate roasty flavors of the porter, creating a finished beer with all of the bite of dark roast coffee with none of the residual bitterness.
This pale ale is brewed with 24lbs of fresh pumpkin from Ward’s Berry Farm in Sharon, MA. We cleaned, roasted, peeled, and cubed the pumpkin on site and split the additions up between the mash and the boil. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice bring classic fall flavors to the forefront, while a subtle maltiness plays a supporting role. The result is a beer that will definitely fix the pumpkin itch that most New Englanders get this time of year!
This balanced brown ale is brewed with cherry wood smoked malts to give it a robust, yet tame, smoky flavor, reminiscent of BBQ, bonfires, and bacon. On the homebrew level, this beer won us bronze at the New England Regional Homebrew Competition last October. The perfect compliment to the cooler fall weather, this beer is best enjoyed after raking leaves, during the big game, or with friends around a campfire.
For this saison, we improved upon its predecessor by increasing the specialty malt and ABV, while removing the spelt and overwhelming yeast characteristics. The grist contains German malts, wheat, and oats, while Saaz and Styrian Golding hops provide floral aromas and bitterness. The result is a spicy, yet subtle saison that is perfect for the cooler fall months.
Designed for those looking for a lighter, lower alcohol, easy drinking craft ale. Super sessionable but still full of flavor, this is a clean, dry blonde ale featuring German pilsner and wheat malt, and subtle notes of melon and strawberry from German Huell Melon hops. Great for those new to the craft beer world.
Traditionally brewed in the area around Berlin, this beer is light bodied, low alcohol and highly effervescent featuring a clean but restrained lactic sourness. Features 50% wheat malt, along with German pilsner and acidulated malts, a very small addition of Saaz hops and fermented with Lactobacillus and our house German ale yeast strain.
Our Berliner Weisse with homemade raspberry syrup added prior to pouring. The sweetness of the syrup blends with the sourness of the Berliner, resulting in a tart, thirst-quenching refreshment that is perfect for the hot days of summer.
Our Berliner Weisse with homemade blueberry syrup added prior to pouring. Wild Maine blueberries are transformed into a refreshingly light syrup to balance the sourness of the Berliner.
Thank you to everyone who showed up for the opening weekend! The turnout was incredible, and we had so much fun serving you our favorite beers that we have been working on over the last year and a half! Our normal business hours are now posted below, so swing by the brewery this summer to enjoy some cold ones in our tap room and outdoor patio area!
