SIDE SCROLLER

Spoonwood Brewing Side Scroller

16-bit IPA ABV 7.7% IBU 50 Fermentables: 2-Row, Honey Malt, CaraMunich Hops: Columbus, Denali, El Dorado At 7.7% ABV, Side Scroller pushes the limits of a single-strength IPA. It’s moderately bitter with intense hops flavors and aromas. We used a small dose of Columbus for kettle bittering, but the spotlighted hops are two varieties that we hadn’t used before. Both …

WOLKENHIMMEL

Spoonwood Brewing Wolkenhimmel

Hefeweizen ABV 6.0%. IBU 12 Fermentables: Pils, Wheat, CaraPils Hops: Santiam, Hallertau Hefeweizen is a type of German wheat beer. “Hefe” means yeast and “Weizen” means wheat. And what we have here is a wheat-heavy beer fermented with an estery, phenolic yeast. We fermented at a warmer temperature to promote the production of fruity esters like isoamyl acetate, which smells …

THE STACHE

Spoonwood Brewing Co Beer-2

Red Rye   ABV 5.1%  IBU 25 Fermentables: 2-Row, Red X, Rye, CaraRye, CaraMunich Hops: Horizon, Santiam, Crystal The Stache is all about malt, in all of its bready, caramelly goodness. The hops are meek, chosen to complement the malt with just a wisp of bitterness. And there is perhaps a slight “tang” from the rye, which makes up roughly …

JAILBREAK

Jailbreak SBC-1

Dry Stout   ABV 4.1% IBU 30 Fermentables: 2-Row, Roasted Barley, Flaked Barley Hops: Horizon Modeled after one of the most classic of all classic beers – Guinness Dry Stout – Jailbreak is deceptively light, with very little sweetness and a firm hops bitterness. The recipe is very basic for a stout, using roasted barley alone for color and flavor …

COLD DRIP CITY

spoonwood craft beer-3

COFFEE BLONDE   ABV 5.8%  IBU 24 Fermentables: 2-Row, Vienna, CaraPils, Flaked Barley, Lactose Hops: Horizon, Crystal Cold Drip City starts as a nondescript blonde ale with lactose (milk sugar) before we infuse it with a strong cold-brewed coffee during carbonation. The trick is that the beer picks up a distinct coffee flavor and aroma without much color. The coffee …

SMOKE & OATS

Smoke & Oats Spoonwood Brewing

SMOKED AMBER LAGER  ABV 5.2%  IBU 28 Fermentables: Smoked Malt, Munich, CaraMunich, Flaked Oats Hops: Horizon, Santiam, Ultra We brewed Smoke & Oats as a lager this past summer, but this time it’s back to original ale form. The smoked malt has been bumped up to roughly 40% of the grain bill, and the caramel malts have been dialed back …

HOW NOW

How-Now

Brown Ale   ABV 4.9%  IBU 21 Fermentables: 2-Row, Victory, CaraMunich, Chocolate Malt Hops/Spices: Santiam, Willamette, Cacao Nibs This version of How Now is flavored with cacao nibs from Mon Aimee in the Strip District. We added the nibs directly to the serving tank to provide the most intense flavor. A straight-forward brown ale with the addition of a dark, …

WORKING CLASS HERO

Cream Ale   ABV 4.8%  IBU 18 Fermentables: Pils, Carapils, Munich, Vienna, Flaked Corn Hops: Santiam Light malts, earthy hops, and clean lager-like yeast deliver a convincing performance. Critics agree: this is beer.

GOOD-EYE SNIPER

DIPA    ABV 9.5%   IBU 65 Fermentables: 2-Row, CaraMunich, Sugar Hops: Equinox, Amarillo, Citra, Sorachi Ace Retract the footsteps that brought us to this flavor. Big juicy malt sweetness. Even bigger juicy hops fruitiness. Dude, you’re huge. Let’s party!

LORNA

Spoonwood New Pics-2

Belgian Dark Ale   ABV 9.0%  IBU 29 Fermentables: 2-Row Pale, Special B, Dark Candi Syrup Hops: Horizon,Goldings Lorna is the dark side of Blithe, our golden strong. It’s a simple recipe that allows the basic elements to shine. The yeast lays down a bananas foster and bubblegum vibe. The dark malt and Candi Syrup provide rich fruity and toffee-like flavors, …

KILLER DILLER

Killer Diller Spoonwood

IPA   ABV 6.7%   IBU 80 Fermentables: 2-Row Pale, Vienna, Wheat, Crystal Hops: Bravo, Columbus, Chinook, Meridian, Equinox Forget about that West Coast/East Coast nonsense. This is an American IPA, period. And it’s the staple of our ever-changing draft lineup. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter, citrusy, floral, and fruity. Named after a line from a Lennon contribution to the suite …
