Five Gold Rings - Homebrew Update
We’re pleased to announce that we have now successfully brewed, bottled, and labeled our signature Sellis White (a Belgian witbier). It’s been a wild ride, and over the course of our household brewing efforts (commanded and lead by Mr. Barth), we have now amassed a crew of dark bottles, bags of caps, and strange glass tubes and airtight contraptions. There’s almost always a bag of hops in the back of our fridge, too, which should not be confused for a pouch of salad greens.
So! Presenting Five Gold Rings brewed by Hands Over Feet in the heart of Boston, a seasonal dazzler, 5.5% A.B.V. - a golden unfiltered cup of coolness.
The beautiful label you see here is designed by my (Emma) fabulous, talented, sparkling sister Jenni who lives and designs in New York City - and hopefully will be working with us on more labels in the future! You can see the label she designed in our earlier post, here.
Five Gold RingsGrains: Flaked Oats

So my sister is pretty much a baller and so talented with design. We haven’t yet written a really comprehensive post about homebrewing, but I’m sure we will in the New Year.
We started brewing last fall and we’ve made about three or four batches so far. Brian has led the way with this craft - he goes to our favorite homebrew store The Homebrew Emporium to pick up ingredients every so often. So far it’s been well worth the price to brew our own - a bomber of beer usually will cost us under three dollars to make (not including start up costs - buying equipment). You’ll be hearing more details on it soon.
Our most successful batch has been a delicious Sellis White (a Belgian witbier), with a finish of orange and coriander. It’s refreshing, yeasty and delicious. We’re branding this latest batch for the winter season “Five Gold Rings” and we hope you’ll try some.
