Snip Snap ($21/4-pack) – 8.3% ABV

DIPA DDH with Citra, Citra Cryo, and Galaxy

November 15th, 2018 was discouraging. An icy-mix caused the scheduled food truck to cancel and beer drinkers to stay home. We sat around the tasting room trying to figure out how to let people know our six-week old brewery existed. We discussed hiring someone to twirl a “Beer Here” sign…

We’ve come a long way! As usual we double dry-hopped Snip Snap with Citra and Galaxy, two of our favorites. They work together to create an immense aroma of passionfruit, melon, and citrus on a creamy backdrop overloaded with oats and wheat.

Cheater Hops #19 ($18/4-pack) – 7.6% ABV

IPA DDH with Nelson Sauvin Simcoe, and Simcoe Cryo

A handful of hop varieties pack such appealing aromatics that brewing with them is like cheating. We named our ever-changing series of IPAs “Cheater Hops” in their honor. We are honest brewers, that’s why we can admit when we cheat!

When Simcoe and Nelson Sauvin hops were released in 2000 you’d think their intense tropical aromatics would have been a revelation, but hardly anyone seemed to notice! We’re thankful both varieties eventually caught on because they are two of our favorites! In this beer the combined hop aroma explodes with mango, gooseberry, pine, and citrus!

Cupped ($14/2-pack) – 12.5% ABV

Imperial Stout with Peanut Butter, Cacao Nibs, and Vanilla Beans Added

Peanut butter just isn’t peanut butter if it doesn’t stick to the roof of your mouth! So we focused on creating a sticky mouthfeel for this stout with rye and caramel malts. To enhance the aroma of the cacao nibs most of the color comes from chocolate rye. Then we added powdered peanut butter for that distinctly toasty-nutty flavor that goes so perfectly with chocolate!

Red Viper ($18-4/pack) – 7.6% ABV

IPA with Hibiscus and Spanish Cedar Added

Like most of our IPAs this one has a vibrant hop flavor with citrus, mango, and berry… but unlike the rest it has a vibrant color! Hibiscus flowers provide their intense pigmentation along with refreshing cranberry and floral aromatics. Aging on Spanish cedar wood plays a supporting role with zesty grapefruit and sandalwood aromatics dancing behind the Simcoe and Nelson Sauvin hops. A vibrant beer to enlighten those gray days.

Brötwasser ($16/4-pack) – 5.8% ABV

Munich Dunkel

The secret to delicious malty lagers is delicious malt. This one was brewed with Weyermann’s® heirloom Barke® Vienna and Munich malts, plus a little dark malt for color. We hopped it lightly with German Tettnang in the kettle for balancing bitterness and an herbal lift. The flavor is loaded with toast, pumpernickel crust, and light chocolate.

AB. S. W. ($22/500 mL Bottle) – 12.8% ABV 

Imperial Stout Brewed with Muscovado Sugar, Aged in Apple Brandy Barrels, with Toasted Walnuts Added
