Default The Four Homebrews of the Hopocalypse

Hello everyone. I have been brewing for a year now, and lurking on this forum for about as long. This has been an incredible resource for improving my technique, finding recipes, and learning about everything beer related.

A few months ago I had an idea for a themed beer set that I could give out as Christmas presents. Somehow it all came together in time. The beers turned out great, and my graphic designer friend made some amazing labels for them. I am very proud of the project, but I couldn’t have done it without this website, so thank you all. I thought I’d share the labels and recipes in case anyone might be inspired. All of my recipes are five gallons and partial mash.

What an awesome idea/theme! I'm very close to switching from extract to partial mash/BIAB and will definitely be making one or all of these!
