BA Sour with Fruit
4 pounds per gallon of O’Henry peaches from Sunnyland Orchards were added to a mixed-culture witbier and further aged in oak for six months. These peaches were absolutely dripping with sugary-sweet juices that we knew were going to infuse the beer with tremendous amounts of flavor. Our prediction was correct — 4:1 Peach has explosive aroma that leads into bright acidity and over the top peachiness.
Tart Wheat with Grapes
After a beer sees fruit, the fruit usually still has a little love to give. The Syrah grapes in Syrah Shorty have already seen a barrel aged sour, but we steeped them again in fresh beer to extract even more of their floral and plum aroma and tannic structure. The result is a tart crushable ale with hints of strawberry, raspberry and rosé wine.
A farewell beer by our longtime Lead Brewer James. A hoppy amber ale brewed with flavorful German malts and American hops and fermented with a traditional German Alt yeast. It reminds us of the amber beers of the 2nd craftbeer wave where malt and hops competed evenly for the attention of the drinker.
When our buddies at Highland Park ask you to brew their award winning West Coast Pilsner for Timbo Week you say “HELL YEAH!” Timbo takes a West Coast IPA and runs it through the lager machine to get an even cleaner and crisper hoppy beer. With a medium sized dry hop of Mosaic and Citra, Timbo has super rad aromas of marijuana, grapefruit and ripe guava. Blasts of citrus pith and pine sap dominate the flavor with hints of grainy pilsner malt in the background. BEER!
Highland Park Brewery, Green Cheek Beer Co. and Cellarmaker have combined their lager knowledge to create a dry, extremely pale but distinctly Californian pilsner. Hopped with Slovakian Celeia in the kettle for a classic spicy base and then lightly dry hopped with American Sterling (an American take on Czech Saaz hops) for an aromatically fruity accent.
For this batch of Daphne, we switched out the Amarillo for Strata hops. Aromas of lemon and lime, tangy weed and pine and geranium blossom come together with the crackery malt forming the perfect little hoppy crusher. The flavor is clean and balanced with juicy hops supported by bready malt and a lingering grassy bitterness.
What happens when you cross our two of our favorite pale ales, Mt. Nelson and Dobis? You get Pineapple Peak! Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops are together at last in a supremely aromatic and flavorful, but always easy drinking, pale ale. Tangerine, pineapple and tangy ganja aromas are followed by pithy lemon peel and a Kerns nectar like juicy finish.
Hopped with generous additions of Nelson Sauvin, Mosaic & Citra this is one of our juiciest and favorite pale ales. It is a mini version of our double IPA Original Dankster. Notes of pineapple, kiwi, gooseberry, diesel, citrus and tropical fruits. Hold Me Closer Tiny Dankster!
Dank of the West
You know we love anything DANK, so when we tried this oily, tangy, ganja-smelling IPA, we had to label it with our first dank pun in years! Strata and Idaho 7 lead the way with bright tropical fruit and sour diesel spice with a touch of Centennial and Simcoe for undertones of citrusy terpenes. Clear and crisp for that West Coast kick that we all love some much!
In Northern California we say HELLA, but in Boston they say WICKED… We brewed Wicked Juicy as our 1st attempt at creating an IPA in the style of the great hop-forward brewers in the Northeast. We make this one with Simcoe, Citra & Galaxy hops along with a simple grist of pale malt & oats & ferment it warm with an expressive yeast. It’s totally unfiltered and dripping with juicy splendor!
For this single hopped Double IPA we use one of our favorite hops, CITRA!!! This hop brings potent aroma and flavor, notably of pine sap, lychee, orange and pineapple. This is dry hopped with our finest Citra from multiple lots as well as Citra Cryo (think hop hash). The result is silky and juicy but with a noticeable hop kick that lets you know this is a double IPA!
Wild Gooseberry Chase
We love New Zealand Nelson Sauvin. It is by far our favorite hop. No other hop has such a wide range of aromas and flavors so it’s perfect for a single hop beer like this. We used two of our favorite lots of Nelson from Freestyle Farm’s 2020 harvest. We think this is the perfect showcase of what Nelson can and should smell and taste like.
The two most potent hops of the Southern Hemisphere collide in this sticky and tropical haze bomb. Galaxy brings the heat with huge tangerine flesh and passion fruit aromas while Nelson fills it out with pineapple and incredibly delectable white wine grape notes. A winning combination in all of the multiverses.
DDH Select Cut
DDH Double IPA
We are so stoked for this bombastic collab with the creative folk over at Hop Butcher for the World, a Chicago area based brew crew. If you don’t know their amazing hoppy offerings with slick can art then make sure to check them out. For Select Cut we went through the list of hops to find a combination that brings varying elements that would knock all the socks off. ALL OF THEM. Get ready for intense aromas and flavors from stone fruit forward Nectaron (a new New Zealand variety), lemon Warhead like Centennial, winter melon forward Cascade and drippy pineapple gummy bear Idaho 7. This beer fux, no it fuhcks, NO, FUCKS! There we said it. Sorry, not sorry, DAD! Don’t miss this one!
Double Milk Stout
Using the highest quality of cocoa nibs from Cru Chocolate and real madagascar vanilla bean, Mad Nibs achieves a rich and refined chocolate character suitable for any chocolate or dessert beer lover. The base stout recipe has a medium roast coffee like element as well as undertones of raisin and dark berry that supports the softer milk chocolate notes from the nibs. A judicious amount of vanilla helps amplify the expected chocolate flavor to the anticipated level of familiarity. Lastly, milk sugar adds a touch of sweetness and a smooth transition from flavor to flavor. Contains LACTOSE*
Coffee & Cigarettes
Smoked Coffee Porter
A lightly smoked coffee porter made with a touch of German beechwood smoked malt as well as high quality English malts to create a chocolaty, roasty, base beer. Then, add two pounds of Sightglass Peruvian Valle Inca Reserve coffee per barrel for an intense but refined coffee character.
Black is Beautiful
Blended Imperial Stout
In celebration of Juneteenth we released our 2nd iteration of Black is Beautiful, the industry wide collab started by Weathered Souls Brewing of San Antonio, Texas .Once again we will donate 100% of the proceeds to the Anti Police-Terror Project. This is the blend of an original imperial stout recipe & an imperial stout that has aged in American Bourbon barrels for 2.5 years. Resulting in deep flavor, richness & liveliness from fresh stout. Enjoyed it now or cellared cold for up to 1 year.
