Available Beers

What’s Available – 3/4

Drink It Down4.9% ABV ($3/6): This isn’t an India Brown Ale, or a Sour Brown, or an Imperial Brown. It’s just a classic Brown brewed with English Maris Otter, Chocolate, and Caramel malts. Hopped with East Kent Goldings, and fermented with our house English Ale. The result has notes of coffee ice cream, toasted bread, and orange marmalade. Order Growler

Chamomile Cuttings – 5.0% ABV ($3/6):  Chamomile Cuttings (as the name suggests) is Cuttings dosed with chamomile flowers (both as a hot-extract for flavor and a cold steep for aroma). While many people associate chamomile with nighttime tea, it is a classic “secret” spice in Belgian ale, especially Wit. It provides a juicy-fruit-apple flavor.

Cuttings – 5.0% ABV ($3/6): While Belgian Dubbels, Tripels, and Quads get most of the excitement, the humble Belgian Single is often ignored. It’s pale, light, bright, and a little bit hoppy. We brewed ours with with Belgian Pilsner malt and Grungeist hops, for a clean base and slight tropical fruitiness to compliment the banana and bubblegum from the Belgian ale fermentation. Order Growler

House Saison #5: Oats – 5.4% ABV ($3.5/7): We aimed for a more golden hue for the return of our House Saison. It still uses our house Brett saison culture, and spend nearly three months in stainless getting tart and funky before release! Order Growlers

Saturated Hue – 6.0% ABV ($3/6): Our “of Light” pale ales have followed a similar formulation since we started brewing. We tweak the hops, but not much else. We gave this batch a new name to signify the tweaked fermentation and malt. Combined they allow a brighter more saturated hop expression and a cleaner honey-like finish. Exclusively dry-hopped with Vic Secret to bring peach, passion fruit, and citrus aromas. Order 4-pack/$16

Threat Level Morning – 6.1% ABV ($3/6): While we love massive hulking dark beers, sometimes you want to drink a whole can of stout by yourself! Despite its restrained strength, we don’t sacrifice malt-intensity or body. The base stout was inspired by Scottish ales with Golden Promise pale malt, dark caramel malt, and roasted barley. We add a twist with Peruvian Tabaconas coffee beans locally roasted and then added mere days before canning. The coffee intensifies the chocolate-notes from the malt, while bringing its own grape and dried fruit aromatics. Order 4-pack/$16

Green Dragon – 6.6% ABV ($7): 16oz Can: Nelson Sauvin is one of our favorite hop varieties thanks to its distinct contribution of white wine and gooseberry aromatics. Sometimes it needs a partner though, so we paired it with Southern Cross, another New Zealand-grown variety. It’s a combination suggested by science because the signature thiol in Nelson Sauvin (3S4MP) acts synergistically with the apricot-leaning ester from Southern Cross (2MIB). Order 4-pack/$18

Vanillafort – 8.0% ABV ($4/8): We first created Vanillafort two years ago as a 10 gallon variant; that single keg of vanilla-bean-infused Pillowfort has finally lead to its first canning run! Talk about rich, dry hopped with over 4-lbs of Citra® and Azacca® plus 30 Madagascar vanilla beans per barrel. The combination of citrus and melon from the hops and creamy vanilla makes for a decedent dessert-like DIPA! Order 4-packs/$20

Cryovolcano – 8.2% ABV ($4/8): Citra and Mosaic are two of our favorite hops. Together they provide an intense aroma of green pineapple, melon, and grapefruit. 50% of our 4.4 lbs per barrel triple-dry-hopping was with Citra and Mosaic Cryo. Yakima Chief creates Cryo by removing half of the green hop material. The name comes from chilling with liquid nitrogen to prevent the aromatic oils from volatilizing. The result is the equivalent of 6.6 lbs per barrel of dry hopping and one of our most aromatic DIPAs! Order 4-packs/$20

Guard the Beard – 8.3% ABV ($3.5/7): To celebrate the opening of their brewery we invited Stephen and Lucas of Homaide over to brew a Biere de Garde with us! This traditional French style is rustic… which means it has a unique fruitiness from a warm lager-fermentation. Toasty-bready-toffee malt, without much sweetness. Mild herbal-earthy hops. Although it is often lumped-in with saison, the style isn’t traditionally sour or funky… but we’ve already got a barrel of it aging that will be eventually! Order Growler

Bridge Four – 11.5% ABV ($4.5/9): For Christmas 2019 Mike received two rum barrels from his father-in-law. We aged our Belgian-inspired Quad in them to enhance its already intense dried fruit flavors of dates, raisins, and figs. Almost a Belgian Barleywine? Despite being one of our strongest beers to date, the modest amount of residual sweetness makes for a more drinkable or as the Belgians would say “digestible” result. Order Growlers

Graveyard of Forgotten Gods – 11.2% ABV ($4.5/9): Throughout human history there have been thousands of gods venerated and sacrificed to whose names we’ve lost. This is our ode to the forgotten gods of brewing whom our ancestor beseeched and praised for delicious beer! Blended from 80% imperial porter and 20% rye-barrel-aged imperial stout. The flavors are inspired by Scandinavia, with subtle touches of cardamom seed and licorice root. The result is notes of dark chocolate from the malt, baked goods from the spices, and vanilla from the oak. Order 2-pack/$12

To-Go/On-Site Bottles

Stallion Cover – 7.7% ABV: This beer is a blend of two threads: 45% young rye saison aged in stainless steel, and 55% old wine-barrel-aged pale sour brewed with unmalted wheat and aged hops. The result is a beer with tartness and fruitiness that will continue to evolve as time passes, developing funkier and earthier aromatics. Order 500 mL Bottle/$12

365.24 – 7.7% ABV:  365.24 is the culmination of two threads. First, a rice saison aged in gin barrels, vibrant and juniperus. Second, a sour golden ale aged in a wine barrel, acidic and succulent. The combination balances aromas of resin and earth, against tartness and oak. In House Only/$17

Jona and Ida are a Pear – 6.9% ABV: Pressed from a blend of Jona Gold, Ida Red, Greening, and Golden Delicious apples grown in Virginia. We blended in 15% local Asian pear juice to bring a touch of perceived sweetness. Fermented with our house culture. The result is balanced and effervescent, with a blend of orchard fruit aromatics. Gluten-Free, Vegan, and Unpasteurized. Order 500 mL bottle/$10

Elliptical Orbit 2020 – 7.8% ABV: Elliptical Orbit 2020 is our annual dark sour. It changes each year, this one has bready dark malts, rye, and Black Mission figs. We aged it in Maryland Chambourcin red wine barrels for 10 months. The result is layered with earthy rye, bright acidity, rich dark fruit, and leathery Brett. The second entry in a renewed tradition. Order 500 mL bottle/$16

On Deck

Single Citrus Sorbet – 5.5% ABV ($3.5/7)Nothing quite brings out the best in our hoppy beers like citrus and vanilla! This juicy pale ale got the full treatment with a pound of Madagascar vanilla beans and the zest of more than 200 citrus fruits. We zested mostly oranges and grapefruits, but added a few lemons and limes. Like rainbow sherbet in a glass (without lactose)! Order 4-pack/$17
