Vienna Lager (Vienna Style Lager) - 5.2% (New batch tapped yesterday 7/31!)
We were out of Vienna Lager for a bit last month but we brewed a second batch that just got tapped in the tasting room yesterday. Vienna Lager is a rich and toasty amber lager. Crisp, clean and easy drinking with balanced malt flavor and mild sweetness.
Shaking Head To Toe (Coffee Porter) - 5.4 %
Our latest dark beer is a smooth and easy drinking, checking in at 5.4%. This lighter porter has tons of rich coffee character from locally roasted coffee and coffee malts. Be on the lookout for cans and a nitro version too!
Call An Army (Mecca Grade Pale Ale) - 5.5%
A unique pale ale brewed entirely with Mecca Grade malts. Mecca Grade malts are all estate grown and known for being unique and complex. Call An Army is hopped entirely with Simcoe hops. We’ll be canning this beer so be on the lookout in mid - August.
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.
Batch 312 (Pale Ale) - 5.9%
This is a classic pale ale recipe featuring Centennial, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops. Being in the midst of a hot summer, nothing hits the spot like a refreshing, easy drinking pale ale.
Coconut Restraint (Maple Brown Ale w/ Coconut and Lactose) - 6.0%
We took one of our favorite beers, Restraint, and added toasted coconut and lactose. Nutty and sweet coconut adds a richness to the beer while lactose adds sweetness and body.
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.
Scoville White Walls (White IPA w/ Peppers) - 6.7%
If you like peppers, make sure to grab a pint of Scoville White Walls before it’s gone. This beer is “hopped” with three different types of peppers, giving it a pleasant spiciness and green chili aroma.
Batch 322 (Brut IPA) - 7.3%
This is our second Brut IPA. These beers are created to be effervescent, dry, and fruit forward. Minimal bitterness and large dry hopping creates a fruity and champagne-like quality to these delicious, unique IPAs.
Orchards To The Sky (Double IPA) - 8.3%
A new DIPA recipe that showcases three of today’s most popular hops - Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe. This DIPA has a minimal malt profile of 2-row and pilsner malt and is extremely drinkable. Grab a tulip of this refreshing DIPA when it debuts and be on the lookout for 4-packs.
