IPA - American
Citra and Amarillo hops are at the forefront of flavor and aroma. Orange and tropical notes like passion fruit and mango permeate the palette. However, at 7% ABV, the malt backbone is enough to help balance the 70 IBUs of bitterness.
Delicately balanced. A subtle aroma of apple and pear gives way to a soft yet attenuated malt character. Mild hop flavor fills in to create a delicately crisp and highly refreshing finish.
Red Ale - Irish
An “easy drinker”. Caramel malt flavors balance a subtle dry roastiness creating a nearly crisp finish with a hint of roast that lingers pleasantly on the palette.
Oatmeal Stout (Nitro)
Stout - Oatmeal
Roasted and caramel malts with the smooth silkiness of oats create a coffee and cream flavor. Usually the roasted malts create a somewhat acrid finish. However, in this version, the finish is much smoother than one would expect.
Extra Special / Strong Bitter
A complex malt backbone works as a great counter point to the hoppy bitterness. The result is a nicely balanced beer that has a nice dry finish.
This recently revived classic wheat based style from the 14th century features orange zest and coriander as the main flavor components. A traditional witbier yeast completes this classic style.
A pale and spicy Trappist-type ale. A soft and grainy malt character supports the floral hop bitterness to produce a dry finish. Esters and phenols are complex in this one with Citrusy notes and some peppery spice-like phenols. The interplay between the yeast character, hops, malt and alcohol is what makes this beer different. As with all Trappist ales, smooth and deceptive ABV are among the chief characteristics.
Brown Ale - American
A Raspberry infusion acts as a great counterpoint to the chocolatey and toasted malt flavors in this beer.
This is the highly refreshing and effervescent wheat beer like those found in Germany. Sometimes known as a “hefeweizen” in the U.S. We use a traditional yeast to produce banana esters and clove phenols that dominate the delicate grainy and doughy wheat flavors. The wheat imparts a creaminess that offsets the spritzy finish.
English Brown Ale
Brown Ale - English
A great complex nutty malt profile is the showcase of this beer. We use traditional English hops to bitter and complement the malt. The result is a nicely balanced, easy drinking favorite.
Originally brewed on the West Coast during the Gold Rush Era as a “Steam” Beer. A lager yeast was used at a warmer temperature in an open fermenter to take advantage of the cooler San Francisco climate. Woodsy Northern Brewer hops are showcased along with a firm caramelly and toasted malt backbone.
