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!

Batch 457 (100% Galaxy Wheat) - 4.6%
Batch 457 is an American Wheat Ale with hefty amounts of Galaxy hops. These Australian hops are known for their passionfruit and citrus flavors. This beer has minimum bitterness and low ABV, making it a refreshing go-to warm weather beer while it’s around.

Clarity (Dry Hopped Golden Ale) - 4.7%
Clarity returns this month! An easy-drinking golden ale generously dry hopped with Mosaic and Nugget hops. Low bitterness and a clean finish make this one of our most approachable beers.

Mango Day Dreamin’ (Golden Ale w/ fruit) - 4.7%
Mango Day Dreamin’ is part of our Day Dreamin’ series of fruited golden ales. This beer is light and easy to drink, with tropical flavors and mild sweetness.

Tangerine Day Dreamin’ (Golden Ale w/ fruit)- 4.7%
Another version of Day Dreamin’, but with citrusy and slightly tart tangerines! This is a small batch, so grab it quickly once it taps!

Rx Pils (German-Style Pilsner) - 5.2%
A light and refreshing craft lager. Rx is crisp with mild sweetness and light bitterness from German Magnum and Hallertau hops. Meant to be extremely versatile and easy-drinking with delicate malt flavors and mild floral hop aroma.

Batch 461 (100% Cascade Cryo Pale Ale) - 5.5%
Cascade hopped American Pale Ales jump-started the craft beer revolution over 30 years ago. Batch 461 is our modern take on a traditional American Pale Ale using Cascade Cryo hops. It’s piney and citrusy with a balanced malt character.

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 early May!

Maibock (Helles-Style Bock) - 6.6%
Another lager is coming your way! Maibocks are stronger lagers that are pale in color and have minimal hop character. It’s medium bodied with rich malt character and easy-drinking.

Batch 449 (Admiral Malt West Coast Red) - 6.7%
A new recipe featuring Admiral malts out of Alameda, California. Admiral Malting’s California grown malts are floor malted in small batches. This red ale uses three of Admiral’s malts (Gallagher’s Best, Kilnsmith I/II, Hearth) to produce a rich, flavorful ale with a touch of sweetness. Hopping with Simcoe, Columbus and Nugget give this beer a West Coast hop profile that’s earthy and piney.

Batch 448 (Cryo IPA) - 6.8%
Another experimental Cryo hopped IPA is on the way, this one utilizing Cascade, Simcoe and Chinook hops. Batch 448 has a vibrant and crisp hop character with clean bitterness.

Scale The Walls (White IPA) - 7.6%
A ramped up version of our year-round White IPA, White Walls. Scale The Walls bumps up ABV to 7.6% and adds a touch of Pilsner malt to light the body and keep the beer super refreshing. Still, primarily all Citra hops, Scale The Walls also includes a touch of Mosaic hops.

Keys For Doors that Don’t Exist (Cryo Double IPA) - 9.4%
This DIPA is brewed and dry hopped with Cascade, Simcoe, Mosaic and Columbus hops. New school and classic hop varietals with the addition of Cryo hops (lupulin hop powder), create layers of dank, citrusy and resiny hop flavors. It has classic West Coast bitterness and a dry body.
