“Jean pouring grain into the mash tun.
Tired Hands Brewing Company was born in the confines of Jean’s parent’s garage over eight years ago. He began brewing beer partly out of intrigue, but entirely out of passion. During his college years, his father had turned him on to the hoppy pale ales and IPAs of the West Coast, which eventually led to many months of beer exploration. During this time, he discovered the beautifully dry and expressive farmhouse ales of France and Belgium. After a few months of homebrewing, Jean entered his beer into a local homebrew competition (now one of the nation’s largest), and took first place in the Belgian category with his Saison. Upon obtaining a degree in Special Education (a skill set that has been instrumental throughout his brewing career!) from West Chester University, Jean set off to pursue his passion for beer professionally.
He landed a job at Weyerbacher Brewing Company in Easton, Pennsylvania. Through Weyerbacher, Jean learned the ins and outs of brewery management (filtration, bottling, kegging, scrubbing mold, etc.) and made many great friends in the process.
After some time at Weyerbacher, Jean moved on to Iron Hill, where he worked as a brewer at their West Chester location for nearly five years. During this time Jean fell head-over-heels in love with the brewpub model of brewing. By creating beer in one room, and then serving it in another, he was able to connect to the people drinking his beer on a personal level daily; a perk previously unavailable to him while working in a production brewery.
After many years of brewing professionally in different environments, much travel, careful consideration, and quite a few business classes from both Wharton and the Community College of Philadelphia, Jean built Tired Hands Brewing Company to be a concise rendition of his ideal brewing environment."
1) Alien Church 7%
Alien Church is our Hyper-Speed Reptoid Alien with Photosynthesizing Tongue Oat IPA. Brewed with an abundance of pillowy malted oats and intensely extraterrestrially hopped AND dry hopped with our favorite sticky drippy juicy American varietals. Luscious layers of kiwi smoothie, strawberry candies, blueberry jelly, ruby red grapefruit, bright orange zest, musky tropical fruits, and drippy pineapple.
2) Alien Church DDH Citra & Galaxy 7%
DDH Alien Church is the intensely amplified & totally fuzzed out iteration of our Reptoid Alien with Photosynthesizing Tongue Oat IPA. Brewed with the same fluffy malted oats as always, and hopped, again as always! super aggressively with Cascade and Columbus. Dry hopped first with the same huge dose of the choicest Citra, Mosaic, and Chinook we’ve come to love and then blasted over the skull with the heaviest of hands with a mountain of even more Citra and additional tropical & punchy & hyper fresh Galaxy for the secondary dry hopping. We hope you enjoy this one as much as you’ve come to enjoy Alien Church over the last several years =)
