Our Mutual Friend Announces May Lineup of Beers

Our Mutual Friend Brewing Company (OMF) proudly announces their lineup of May beer releases. This month the brewery flexes its muscles with a few foeder-aged sours, a collaboration IPA with Novel Strand Brewing Company, a new Weirding Way variant, and the return of some OMF classics.
Available Saturday, May 6: 

El Waka is a collaboration IPA brewed in collaboration with Novel Strand Brewing Company. This 6.5% ABV Juicy IPA is hopped with El Dorado and Riwaka hops which results in notes of fresh lemon, grapefruit zest, pineapple, pear and watermelon. The beer will be available on draft at both locations, as well as in 16-ounce cans at OMF. “Bonne Fraise is our first beer that’s fruited with strawberries and it’s perfect for this time of year,” says OMF Co-Owner and Head Brewer Jan Chodkowski. “The aroma is pure strawberry candy and the taste is tart and juicy just like a perfectly ripe strawberry.”

Bonne Fraise is a foeder-fermented mixed-culture sour ale with strawberries that has been aging in the foeder for a year. This first time release has flavors of fresh and candied strawberries. Enjoy sip upon sip with its approachable 5.3% ABV. This beer is bottle conditioned and available in 500-milliliter bottles and on draft at OMF.

Available Saturday, May 13:
Weirding Way is OMF’s Brett saison series that has a different rotating dry-hop with each release. This month the brewery is releasing Lórien Weirding Way which has been foeder-fermented for 6 months and dry-hopped with Lórien, a newer hop introduced in 2021 that lets the malt bill shine, and, for this beer, provides notes of fresh melon and wildflowers that is balanced by Brettanomyces funk. This 7% ABV palate-pleaser is bottle-conditioned (open carefully) and available in 500-milliliter bottles and on draft at OMF.

Available Saturday, May 20:
