Ohmic Smoke Stout
Created in collaboration with Handsome Hog, this stout is brewed with malt which has been smoked in a meat smoker with whiskey.
What’s with the name?
An ohmic contact is a non-rectifying electrical junction: a junction between two conductors that has a linear current–voltage curve as with Ohm's law. Low resistance ohmic contacts are used to allow charge to flow easily in both directions between the two conductors, without blocking due to excess power dissipation due to voltage thresholds. We think this exemplifies the solid, free-flowing relationship we have with our friends and neighbors over at Handsome Hog.

BJCP: Smoked Stout
Ohm's law, which is the electrical current is proportional to potential difference which was first founded by Henry Cavendish. However, Cavendish did not publish his discoveries on electricity during his lifetime. Those discoveries were unknown until 1879, a long time after Ohm had independently made the discovery, and published it himself. Therefore, the law bears his name.
