This beer began its life as an already delicious Belgian Tripel, complete with all the expected clove and spicy flavors. Back in January, we moved it into a handful of tequila barrels to age for as long as it took. Fast forward a couple of months and here we are. Oak and tequila notes complement the spicy, fruity Belgian character exceptionally. What a trip!
Darth Delirium 2022
For the uninitiated, Darth is a big Belgian-style stout brewed with chocolate. We brew him once a year and mature him for a full year before his release. In 2001, the very first time we brewed him, Darth won a GABF gold medal and a World Beer Cup bronze. Since then, he’s repeated with gold in 2008 and a bronze in 2014. Darth is not just a beer, he’s an experience.
Most barleywines are big and heavy, with deep flavors derived from long boils and heavy usage of specialty grains. We skipped all of that nonsense this year and did a big 180. This one is more like the Sauv Blanc of barleywines - tropical, pale and dry with a hint of oak. She's still pretty big, topping in at 11.1% ABV, but she won't weigh you down like most of her traditional counterparts. Cheers to the New Year!!!
With winter coming, most of us want to just get away for one more sun-filled adventure. Travel is hard and weather dependent. Whatever you decide, let this tropical IPA be your staycation! With notes of peach, melon, and citrus, this tropical IPA will bring the warmth of the sun to wherever you are!
Foulweather IPA is a bigger, nastier take on our classic Fairweather IPA. Packed with six different varieties of hops, its malt structure is balanced with flavors ranging from piney to citric to tropical. This one attenuated more than usual so is well above the 8% threshold.
At almost 36,000 feet, Challenger Deep is the deepest known spot on Earth. We brewed this big English IPA exclusively with Challenger Hops, one of our favorites! A little spicey, a little piney, a hint of orange marmalade. Rich, satisfying and of course, Deep!
No aliens were involved in the making of this beer! Well, at least not that we’ll admit to! Area 52 is a pleasant and very drinkable light IPA. It offers what you would expect in an IPA but just on a smaller scale. A light body gives way to delicious fruity hop notes making this a very nice pint.
Wild Country Raspberry Wheat
Wild Country Raspberry is a hazy wheat beer with coppery red tones and a white head. Its aroma is predominantly fruity red raspberry. Raspberry is the predominant flavor too, but the mild sweetness of the berries is balanced with the tartness of wheat malt. A subtle hop spiciness underlies these flavors and adds interest. Surprisingly complex for a fruit beer, Wild Country is easy drinking and refreshing.
Prince William Porter
Prince William Porter is a roasty, medium bodied, highly drinkable American Brown Porter. In the glass it is rich brown in color with ruby red highlights and a light brown head. Its aroma exhibits a malty blend of caramel and chocolate with hints of smoke and spice. Its body features a restrained maltiness supported by a subtle hop bitterness that finishes clean and refreshing. Despite its dark color this beer is very drinkable and food friendly.
Polar Pale Ale
Polar Pale is honey-golden in color and capped with a persistent white head. Its aroma whispers softly of hops...in tones of apricot, citrus and spice. Dry and balanced in body, lots of late addition hops keep the bitterness down but the hop aroma and flavor high. It finishes clean and dry with the lingering interplay of mild malt body and citrusy dry hops.
Pipeline Stout is a full bodied, inky black American Stout. Its rich aroma showcases roasted and chocolate malts and is accentuated with a hint of citrusy, spicy hops. Its flavor features a luxurious maltiness with roast highlights that fades to a hop balanced, chocolate fullness.
Northern Lights Amber
Northern Lights Amber is a brilliant copper colored ale with a slightly off white head. Its aroma is redolent of citrusy hops with caramel and toasty notes appearing as the beer warms. Caramel features prominently in its flavor, while the body is round and moderately dry. The hops play a supporting role in the flavor while keeping the caramel richness in check and providing a clean finish.
Refreshing and approachable, brewed with wheat yeast and unfiltered, this classic Hefeweisen style yields a pale yellow color a cloudy hue. Its aroma and flavor are an intriguing blend of yeast notes, wheat tartness and citric hoppiness. Try it alone, or pair it perfectly with a slice of lemon or orange.
Our Hard Apple Ale is a faintly red-tinged yellow in color with a decidedly cloudy hue. It has a mellow apple aroma with a spicy complexity contributed by a blend of apples. In the flavor the apples take the lead; their sweetness balanced with a refreshing tartness. Apple sweetness lingers pleasantly in the finish.
Fairweather IPA is our signature brew: big, balanced and assertively hopped. Light golden amber in color it has a slight hop haze that disappears as the beer warms. Its aroma is predominantly piny hops with subtle malt underpinnings. It is surprisingly full bodied to balance the citrusy flavor, spicy finish and pleasantly lingering bitterness that result from its extravagant hop schedule.
Bear Tooth Ale
Bear Tooth Ale is an American Brown ale. It is light brown in color with a tan head and slight dry hop haze. More assertively hopped than many browns, its aroma is clean and citrusy with subtle malty sweetness. Its flavor is predominantly hop forward. At the start citrusy hop flavors blend with a dry, malty fullness. Malt flavors dominate the middle while a pleasant hop tingle lingers in the finish.
