Barley White Wine
This year’s barleywine is the next iteration in my quest to put the wine back in barleywine. The recipe is very simple and straightforward which gets out of the way and lets the Sauv Blanc wine yeast take center stage. There’s a touch of citrus from the Centennial hops but flavors of passionfruit and melon are the stars of the show. Happy New Year!
Hot Off The Press
This weather has us longing for a warm vacation and it’s only September. Let’s turn up the heat with a Mexican-style lager. We added cold-pressed habanero juice just before conditioning for a kick in the glass that will hang around longer than an Alaskan winter.
Top of the 8th, 2 on and 2 out. Down by 1 and this slugger up to bat. BAM! Hard hit to deep right! It’s a Go-Ahead Tripel! The crowd loves it! Borrowing some fancy hops from our tropical YellowEye P.A., this tripel covers all the bases: crisp, spicy, fruity, and warming. Just in time for fall; batter up!
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.
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.
Arctic Apple Ale
Our Arctic 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.
