Upcoming Beers

 
 

These beers will be getting tapped in the tasting room soon.  Check out our beer release calendar (above), and follow us on social media for the exact release dates!

Sedation (Hoppy Session Red) - 4.0%
One of our original beers, Sedation combines malty and toasty flavors with floral and citrusy hop flavors. It's brewed with Centennial and Cascade. Keep an eye out for the release mid-March!

Coherence (California Pale Ale) - 5.5%
A California Pale Ale with huge hop character and medium bitterness. Double dry hopped with Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo hops. This beer is getting canned so follow us on social media and sign up for our can release emails to be the first to know.

Progress Simcoe (Progress Pale Ale) - 6.2%
A variation of our Progress Pale Series finally returns, Progress Simcoe! Back in the day, we’d rotate through different hop combinations w/ our pale ale and keep the base beer the same. Eventually, we settled on Mosaic and stopped rotating through new hops. This month we decided it’d be fun to brew a new variation of our Progress Pale Series for old time sake. Stop in the tasting room and try Simcoe and Mosaic beer side by side, the beers are identical other than the hops used.

Dissonance (Golden Stout) - 6.5%
Our Golden Stout, a blonde ale aged on vanilla beans, cacao nibs & Beacon coffee. This deceptively light colored beer is full of dark beer flavors - milk chocolate, sweet vanilla, a nutty malt backbone and roasty coffee.

2019 Spring Seasonal (100% Mosaic IPA) - 6.6%
For this year’s Spring Seasonal we brewed a single hop Mosaic IPA. As we transition to warmer weather and longer days, nothing beats a sessionable, fragrant IPA. Expect big aromas of raspberry, lemon zest and pine with medium bitterness. 4-pack 16 oz cans will be available mid-March!

Nitro Frantic (Coffee Oatmeal Stout w/ Oak) - 7.0%
A creamy, full-bodied oatmeal stout balancing roasted malts, coffee and oak character.

Bell Tower IPA (India Pale Ale) - 7.8%
A big West Coast IPA that is bright, bitter and heavily hopped. Citra, Columbus and Simcoe create dank and resiny hop flavors with aromas of citrus and pine.

Virtue (Double IPA) - 9.5%
Our Mosaic and Amarillo hopped double IPA will be returning! Be on the lookout for this super fruity and bitter DIPA later this month!
