SWITCHYARD LABS IS OUR PLAYGROUND TO EXPERIMENT WITH STYLES, FLAVORS, AND INGREDIENTS.
When it comes to innovating new beer, we rely on every single coworker at Switchyard. It doesn’t matter how long they’ve been with the company, that’s how our pilot system works: anyone at our brewery with an idea can experiment and learn on our pilot system.
WHAT EXACTLY IS A PILOT SYSTEM?
In our case, it’s a cross between a homebrewing setup and a professional brewhouse. Our pilot system is completely custom. It’s built to closely mimic our larger brewhouse. Each Switchyard Labs batch is a little under 15 gallons.
We don’t repeat the same recipe twice on the pilot system, but you may end up seeing a Switchyard Lab release get scaled up to be brewed on our professional 15 Barrel (that’s 465 Gallons!) brewhouse one day.
We hope you enjoy the variety and have fun drinking these beers as much as we enjoy brewing them!
