A blend of five different yeast strains and a large addition of rye malt leaves this beer spicy, and a bit higher in alcohol.
Jelly Donut - Cherry and Blueberry Berliner Weisse 3.9% abv 8 ibu
The infamous "Jelly D" has returned! If you've never had a Berliner Weisse, be prepared. We sour the mash for an extra 8 hours to create a white wine like tartness that reminds you of ruby red grapefruit juice! Organic cherry and blueberry puree is added at the end of fermentation to contribute a fruit sweetness and unique alcohol esters. This wheat beer is incredibly light and refreshing for hot summer days!
Mai Girl - Zwickelbier Maibock 7.7% abv 17 ibu
Straight out of the celler, this German lager was aged cold for three months to produce an incredibly smooth finish! Still hazy, Zwickel and Keller style biers are traditionally unfiltered (as are all of our beers), to provide nutrients and flavor from extra yeast and protein still suspended in solution. You'll find deep and rich graham cracker flavors from vienna and melanoidin barley malts, a slighty spicy nobel hop character, and unique warming sensation on the tongue found only in high gravity lagers!
No Call, No Show - Imperial IPA 9.9% abv 92 ibu
Set your alarm clock now! This booze bomb of an ale was brewed to do trick in just a glass or two! Chalked full of malt and hops, its difficult to find a bigger bodied beer. American and English pale malts join up with an extra addition of palm sugar to bring the kettle to a whopping original gravity of 22° Plato! That means lots of sugar ready to be converted into alcohol by a blend of California yeast strains. But don't forget the hops, although this malt monster starts sweet, it finishes hard with a bitter bite to remind you its an IPA. Better call into work ahead of time!
Tawny Ale - Oak Aged Irish Ale 6.5% abv 26 ibu
All year long, I've been yelled at for the Tawny Ale being around for such a short time. Well dammit it's back! This time we made twice as much, soaked the oak spirals in Jameson whiskey twice as long, and let them float around in the beer for three weeks! So there! Are you happy now?! Cheers!!!!!!!
STUD MUFFIN - English Mild Ale 4.6% abv 19 ibu
This easy-drinking session style ale is a perfect beer for this time of year. Light and slightly floral, Stud Muffin is a great example of a traditional English pub ale. Brewed with Thomas Fawcett's Optic spring malt, and Mild pale malts, it hits your nose like a fresh loaf of bread out of the oven. East Kent Golding hops finish with light bitterness, and the low carbonation leaves the beer creamy. Have a pint or five and turn into a straight " Stud Muffin!"
