Solid sessionable amber, Doin' the Irish proud
A funny thing happens here around summer's end â€“ our eyes start searching the skies for those first fall flakes. As we welcome autumn's first snow, we celebrate the return of Isolation Ale. A sweet caramel malty ale that is balanced by a subtle crisp hop finish. Whether you ski, shred, or shoe, Isolation Ale will inspire you to make first tracks.
Pouring a deep amber, a rich, toasty caramel sweetness greets your nose; the depths of which are lightened by the spiciness of rye, yet leveled by the intense warmth of clove. All the while sharp, familiar notes of cinnamon are softened by the sweet but slightly bitter peel of Moroccan oranges. An intense experience, suely. Much like those moments so long ago on dear Santa's lap.
Single El Dorado hopped American style barley wine that his high in both abv and ibu. Big hoppy nose followed by a balanced mid-palate and a slightly caramel finish. This one can do some damage. It definitely drinks smaller than a 9% beer.
We can all sit on sun drenched patios and freely spill speed beer down our throats till paid transportation takes us home. You want to squirrel away a couple x-tra pales and head to yoga? No problem, Namaste.
But, there are times when fleshy black beer is the only thing that offers the necessary weight. Visiting your uncle's machine shop to thread some pipe before hitting a dirt track sprint car raceâ€¦.? You might want to digest some Lead Feather Black Ale.
The might of big malts and rival hop use give Lead Feather capital dark properties. 6% ABV gives you time, but not at the expense of content.
Lead Feather Black Ale will live in the line up all year. You'll find it on draft right now in our Tap Room and soon in bars around town. Come March, we'll load it into our favorite 16 ounce aluminum vessel. Find one and work it into your life.
This is one monster of a Brown Ale! We used an obnoxious amount of chocolate malt and roasted barley to give this beer a cast iron backbone. Our Oatmeal Brown pours a dark mahogany with aromas of dark chocolate and coffee.
AleSmith Nut Brown is a tribute to one of our favorite British styles. Deep mahogany in color, its rich, malt-forward flavor profile balances notes of biscuit, mild cocoa and earthy hops. A creamy mouthfeel and full body enhances its drinkability, making Nut Brown an extremely sessionable ale that embodies our commitment to quality.
This bready, yet heavily hopped brown ale bridges the gap between its aged British roots and its â€œnew-ageâ€ American counterparts. Heritage British floor-malted barley makes a more than suitable bed for a blend of old school and new experimental American hops to lay. Even for a wandering spirit, it tastes of home.
Porter brewed with Dutched cocoa, Saigon cinnamon, and cayenne.
The history of the bible and religion is indeed the struggle of good vs. evil. Our Serpent's Stout recognizes the evil of the dark side that we all struggle with. This is a massively thick and opaque beer that begs the saints to join the sinners in their path to a black existence.
Ten FIDY Imperial Stout â€“ This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 98 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY (10.5% ABV) is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.
The long, cold nights of winter are a little brighter with CelebrationÂ® Ale. Wonderfully robust and rich, CelebrationÂ® Ale is dry-hopped for a lively, intense aroma. Brewed especially for the holidays, it is perfect for a festive gathering or for a quiet evening at home.
Selected as a benchmark for the Beer Judge Certification Program used in all American based beer judging. Centennial IPA has quickly become the IPA of choice. Pour yourself a pint of this complex flavorful ale and bask in the frothy head's floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. This ale's sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.
A hopped up IPA that always maintains the same consistent grain bill. However, we craft our IPA with a new twist each time it is expertly brewed!
As we know, hop varietals are growing rapidly and we are always attempting to take advantage of them. Our "Craft'd" IPA will always change based on which hops we want to use at the time.
Whenever Craft'd is on, make sure you give it a try!
A hazy, bitter, moderately strong IPA
Cherry IPA made with 100% Traverse City cherries...
It is an IPA that celebrates the mayor of the â€œclothing optionalâ€ Black Beach in Torrey Pines San Diego county. This beer also celebrates Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand
hazy with hints of mandarin orange, mango, & papaya on the nose with a big tropical juice finish
This is a tropical, light bodied, easy-drinking IPA; tasted rice gives the beer a subtle tropical coconut flavor, in a addition to the tropical notes from the Southern Hemisphere hops.
Rupture was born out of our obsession with getting the most out of each and every hop. In fact, we built a machine in our brewery to incorporate a unique fresh grind process. By grinding the whole hop, we "rupture" the lupulin inside - releasing the oil that gives the beer its flavor. And what we grind that day, we use that day. Leaving you a beer thatâ€™s fresh, aromatic, with an unparalleled bright, hoppy character.
We'd like to introduce Snaggletooth Bandana, our newest addition. A massive grapefruit, pineapple, and super-ripe mango aromatic burst out of this medium-bodied IPA. Assertive bitterness is balanced by a subtle malt sweetness and more citrusy fun. You'll tell your grandkids about the first time you drank the Snaggletooth Bandana. And they will tell that story long after you. 6.5%ABV.
This ainâ€™t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine purÃ©e, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine â€” the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit â€” we judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (youâ€™d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didnâ€™t tell you it was there). Weâ€™re not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the â€œI want my beer to taste like fruit juiceâ€ crowd. This is Stone. We like our IPAs to taste like IPAs. Big, bold and not for kids.
The newest member of the Firestone family, Union Jack is the aggressive IPA that you've been searching for. Citrus, pineapple, and a full chewy malt profile finish clean on your palate. Over 70 IBUs and 7.5% alcohol by volume, Union Jack won't have any problem competing with the big India Pale Ales. A beer true to its origins; deeply hopped and bolstered for a long voyage.
This IPA is extra dank and resinous. Enjoy its piney aromas and tropical notes from a blend of Citra and Mosaic hops.
Local's Light is a light, yet very tasty lager. The light pilsen malt creates a soft and subtle flavor profile that finishes crisp and clean on your palate.
Local's Light is a perfect beer for the seasoned craft brew enthusiast and someone new to microbrews. When Short's first opened, there was not a great deal of craft beer available in the area. Joe Short wanted to create a beer that would appeal to new craft beer drinkers who lived in Michigan, and introduce them to the complex flavors of other beer styles.
A west coast Pale Ale chock-full of dank, aromatic hops. This one's a screamer, horde it.
Live in the now - that's is what we always say when we have fresh hops, straight from a local Michigan grower. What a better way to enjoy the summer harvest?
This American Pale Ale is fresh as they come and only being poured at select bars in Chicago. Brewed with Mosaic and Amarillo hops, Lizard King will be the perfect way to start (or end) your day.
Named after the original Native American name for Wolf Road, which runs between Tribes' original brewpub and it's upcoming production brewery, this double pale ale weighs in at 7.5% ABV and 70 IBU's. A blend of two British base malts gives this very approachable beer it's golden color, while the moderate bitterness (for style) and flavors of citrus from Centennial hops balance its crisp dry finish
Pony is new to the scene, but we welcome this pilsner lager into the fold like an old friend. Pony is a crisp, clean pilsner you can saddle on up to the bar and order with a confident, rangy thunder. Get on yer stoop or prepare for the trek, thereâ€™s a Pony in every pint.
Stella Artois was first brewed as a Christmas beer in leuven. It was named Stella from the star of Christmas, and Artois after Sebastian Artois, founder of the brewery. It's brewed to perfection using the original Stella Artois yeast and the celebrated Saaz hops. It's the optimum premium lager, with it's full flavour and clean crisp taste.

Our beloved Velvet Merlin aged with cocoa nibs and Intelligentsia Espresso Beans. All of the smooth textures and roasty dark chocolate goodness of our seasonal Velvet Merlin Oatmeal Stout with the added infusion of Intelligentsia Coffee House aromas and cocoa dusted chocolate truffle flavors. This brew makes debut in our 2014 Winter Bundle pack - the only way to find this elusive collabroation.
Introducing the newest and smoothest member of the Yeti family, VELVET YETI. The surprisingly velvety and rich mouthfeel of the nitro pour rounds out the unmistakeable roasty, caramel & toffee notes that make Yeti such a beast. Despite its minimal 5.0% ABV, this smooth operator is sure to provide maximum joy.
This dark amber ale is fermented with a Belgian yeast strain, which gives it its fruity, banana and apple like aroma. French and Belgian malts lend notes of raisin and freshly baked bread, both on the pallet and the nose, while the floral spiciness of Noble hops lingers in the background.
Strong and sensual, this golden, Belgian-style ale glows with goodness. The richness of German malts and Belgian yeast are tempered by a sparkling approach and overall light body. Considerable depth of character with abundant herbal, fruity notes make this one to savor.
Our interpretation of this classic and refreshing Belgian style ale is brewed with organic pilsner and wheat malts from Canada. Freshly ground coriander and Curacao orange peel, along with a special Wit yeast strain, contribute wonderful orange and citrus aromas and a crisp, yet silky, mouthfeel.
Our spiced California style Wit is both refreshing and complex. Brewed with wheat, coriander, California orange peel and local orange blossom honey. From the first sip to the last you'll find subtle flavors of bread, spice, citrus and a thirst quenching orange honey finish.
Alpha Klaus is Alpha King's festive cousin. A big American Christmas Porter brewed with English chocolate malt, Mexican sugar and of course, tons of strange American hops. Cheers! November release.
A stout-ish porter with a touch of porter-ish stout. Accepting the fact that we live in confusing times, Greenbush offers up itâ€™s own "ball of confusion," with Distorter - a robust porter blurring the lines between a porter and a stout. Have a bottle or get therapy.
Grain: Maris Otter, Crystal 60L, British Chocolate, Black Malt, Roasted Barley Hops: East Kent Goldings, Willamette, Cascade Yeast: British-style Ale yeast
This cider was specially made for a draft customer in Grand Rapids, MI.. We are using over 4 lbs. of homemade cinnamon roasted pecans in a 30 gallon batch of this limited edition cider to bring you Totally Roasted. You will notice that soaking pecans in cider brings a unique texture and taste to the drink. We use cinnamon and vanilla during the roasting process and follow that up by adding whole cut vanilla beans to the cider. These subtle tastes certainly make this a cider all itâ€™s own.
As the sun arcs low in the mid day sky, this year's harvest is slowly fermenting in its winter slumber.
Everyone here at the Orchard enjoys a few halcyon days to remember the hard work in the last year's harvest. We look forward to next year's crop of apples.
To warm ourselves in the cold northern solstice we enjoy our winter cider. Lightly spiced with ethically traded cinnamon, vanilla and a wee drop of syrup from our old Maple trees on our farm.
Enjoy this wonderful cider cool or gently warmed, savor a tipple to reflect on your last year and bountiful new year beginning.
Brewed using Jasmine rice and grapefruit peel, this isn't your average Saison. While both tend to add mostly to the aroma, the crisp flavors of citrus mingle with the bubble-gummy, fruit forward yeast profile. While French malts give this beer its yellowish hue, German Saphir and Czech Saaz hops add balance through their spicy attributes.
Made with pilsner and red wheat malts. Hopped and dry hopped with German Tettnange for a total of 1 lb per barrel. Herbal and floral aromas with a clean, crisp mouth feel and slightly sweet finish.
Double spiced ale brewed in the tradition of Swedish GlÃ¶ggâ€
A holiday ale brewed with honey and spiced with fresh ginger and cinnamon. Availability, November to December.
Name Origin: For the holidays, from crowded stores to awkward office parties to grating family get-togethers, it's still a time to be thankful. Especially for a festive holiday ale that will make you wish the holidays would last just a bit longer.
Like FDR's Depression-Era Radio Addresses, which were like a kick in the butt and a hug at the same time, our Fireside Chat is a subtle twist on the traditional seasonal brew. We begin with a rich, dark, English-style ale and then we improvise with spices until we know we have a beer worth sharing with the nation. Celebrating the right to be original.
Every year, fall's crisp, cool air signals the imminent arrival of winter. Thoughts of snow, friends and family, the holidays, and â€” Jubelale. Brewed with dark crystal malt creating a luscious holiday note with bountiful hops to excite your taste budsâ€” it's easy to see why Jubelale is the perfect complement to the season.
For the past 16 years, Deschutes Brewery has selected a local Oregon artist to create an image evocative of the season's festive atmosphere. The intricate and unique art on the label enhances the Jubelale experience much like beautiful wrapping paper enhances a gift.
This year, Oregon artist Natasha Bacca's unique "creation of light" adorns the label. Bacca says, "This piece illustrates a cold winter night in the background with a dynamic warm fire in the foreground. I wanted the composition of the work to exhibit a balance of cool scenery elements with the warm and energetic celebrations of the season, exemplifying this festive time of year."
Each year, when people are starting to unpack their winter clothes and replenish their firewood, our tiny brewery in the coastal redwoods of Northern California makes seasonal preparations of a different kind. As the cold arrives, we release a unique beverage created to add warmth to even the coldest and darkest of winter's days. Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale begins with a very high original gravity to create a hearty and spicy brew with a deep amber hue and a smooth finish. Anderson Valley Brewing Company wishes you the very best for the holiday season and the New Year.
Just like the Evolution replaced the Shovelhead, our Big Twin DIPA is evolving into a killer 8% intensely hopped, bright double IPA with a dry but bitter finish. Hopped with mandarina and mosaic, it is a superbly well balanced brew!
A hophead's dream beer. This Imperial India Pale Ale has an opening salvo of mango, peach and citrus hop aromas that sit atop a pronounced caramel malt backbone. Although Dreadnaught is a strong and intensely hoppy ale, its complex flavor is both smooth and memorable.
Smooth Double IPA with a lot of tropical flavor and aroma. This DIPA gets most of its flavor from adding the hops before the boil starts and then adding even more at the end of the boil to lock in the flavor and aroma.
Named for Myrcene, a component of essential oils in the hop flower, Myrcenary Double IPA is our tribute to those who revere the illustrious hop, and their unyielding exploit to craft hop forward beers. Brewed with a blend of hops containing the highest levels of Myrcene, this double IPA prevails with a tropical fruit-like flavor, a pungent floral aroma, and a clean getaway.
For this version of Stone Enjoy By IPA we thought: â€œWe donâ€™t always have a filter, so why should our beer?â€ By skipping a step and letting this devastatingly fresh, golden-hued double IPA go un filtered, the beer takes on a hazy appearance and its peach and tropical fruit hop aroma are intensified. So though it may sound like it, this missed step was no misstep.
This beer is intended to be our interpretation, paying homage, to the true west coast style. Expect big, bold and bracing bitterness with tropical fruit notes of mango and grapefruit. Taste the bold and resinous flavor from massive dry hopping. But you better be careful 'cause this brew will take you from 0-100 real fast!
When the coastal water near San Diego begin to warm up each year, anglers anticipate the return of the albacore Tuna, know locally as Longfin. As the days grow longer and warmer, locals and visitors alike begin dreaming of those San Diego summers, This traditional German style Helles is a great compliment to summertime cuisine, and the ideal choice for a warm-weather day. Ballast Point Longifn Lager, get the point!
A striking, robust porter full of warmth and chocolate malt. Eugene is a robust porter named after Eugene V. Debs, an American union leader and activist who led the Pullman Railroad strike in 1894. An assortment of Belgian specialty malts form a complex structure of toasted grain and caramel flavors. Dark chocolate malt makes this porter black as night and infuses it with its distinct intense, chocolate essence.
Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Founders' robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It's a lover, not a fighter.
When The Lights Go Out is a Porter with a strong coffee aroma, creamy malt sweetness, and a dry finish.
Crystal and Chinook full-hopped character, dark orange hued in color, light on the nose but has a nice spicy/sweet finish. Caramel sweet maltiness with peppery spiciness from the rye. This is the beer that makes "Lincoln-Way" famous!
Pours a spectacular crimson red with a creamy tan head. Brewed with four varieties of Belgian caramel malts imparting a sweet richness. Reds Rye is impressively balanced with its hop bitterness and floral bouquet achieved from the dry hop. In the finish, the generous amount of malted rye used accentuates a spicy crisp finish.
Old Chub is a Scottish strong ale brewed with hearty amounts of seven different malts, including crystal and chocolate malts, and a smidge of US and UK hops. Old Chub also gets a dash of beechwood-smoked grains imported from Bamburg, Germany, home of the world's greatest smoked beers. Old Chub is 8% alcohol by volume. While Dale's satisfies our hop addiction, Old Chub takes care of our deep affections for malt. The cola-colored beer (almost black) features a tan head, a creamy, skim-milk mouthfeel, and rich, semi-sweet flavors of caramel and chocolate throughout. The addition of smoked grains gives Old Chub a delicate kiss of smoke on the finish. Old Chub is the beer equivalent of a lightly smoked single malt scotch, or your favorite dark chocolate. We call it Rocky Mountain Mutha's Milk. People who tell us defiantly, \I don't drink dark beer
For those of you who don't know who "Scotty Karate" is... He is a local one man band who plays an amazing slurry of honky tonk influenced, punk country songs. His voice is amazing as well as his high energy shows. (Check him out @ www.scottykaratetime.com) So, we decided to make a beer and name it in his honor. This beer is a big, full bodied Scottish ale. It is 9.75% alc. but it is very smooth and balanced. Since Scotty is also very passionate about beer I asked him to write a description for you, so from the man himself... Aroma: Smells like A fresh caramel apple with a hint of cinnamon inside of cranberry shortbread. Or maybe fresh home made hard candy (from home economics class-7th grade). Flavor: Tastes like a smokey chocolate chip cookie, wild roadside cherry-asparagus, woody, crispy leaf on a fall day.
Wee Mac is a Scottish style brown ale. Fermented at cooler than normal temperatures to mimic the climate of Scotland. Wee Mac is an easy drinking brown ale that is both smooth and malty wit caramel and chocolate tones. Hops are used sparingly in this beer and serve only to help balance the sweetness of the malt.
Stone Coffee Milk Stout, previously known as Gallagher's After Dinner Stout at Liberty Station.
There's no shortage of talented people at Stone and each makes their presence known in their own unique way. Brian Gallagher, a brewer who learned the art of fermentation in the UK, used the beer you now hold, a New World take on a traditional Enlgish milk stout, as his vehicle for personal expression. Originally brewed as a limited-edition offering at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens â€“ Liberty Station, this coffee-laced milk stout quickly became a favorite among Gallagher's peers. Made bittwersweet and creamy while remaining smooth and easy-drinking thanks to the addition of milk surgar, it's clear why this is a brew we needed to share with fans everywhere.
Dark Imperial Wit Ale Brewed with Spices Wassail is known for warmth and spices. The tenth verse of our Twelve Beers of Christmasâ„¢ saga goes leaps and bounds beyond a traditional winter warmer, drawing inspiration from the dark, spiced ales from Belgium and our love for experimental brewing in SoCal. 10 Lords-A-Leaping is a dark imperial wit ale featuring 10 different spices â€“ coriander, orange peel, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, mace, anise, dried apples and cloves, which complement the spiced notes imparted from the yeast and prance upon the rich, dark fruited character of the specialty malts. Wassail is known for warmth and spices. Our rendition goes leaps and bounds beyond a traditional winter warmer, drawing inspiration from the dark, spiced ales from Belgium and our love for experimental brewing in SoCal. This dark imperial wit ale featuring 10 different spices, which complement the spiced notes imparted from the yeast and prance upon the rich, dark fruited character of the specialty malts.
This English style of beer, also known as Sweet Stout or Cream Stout, first appeared in London in the late 1800s. The early brewers touted the health benefits of the milk sugar in this beer which today relates mainly to the increased amount of calories(no real health benefitsâ€¦sorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year round stout.
