Weizenbock    ABV  7.1% Fermentables: 2-Row, Wheat, Munich Dark, Vienna, CaraMunich, Chocolate Malt Hops: Sterling Weizenbocks come in different shapes and sizes, though all are relatively strong and incorporate a significant portion of wheat in the recipe.

Roggenbier (5.0%) Fermentables: 2-Row, Munich, CaraHell, Rye Hops: Sterling Roggenbier is a somewhat obscure German-style rye beer. Ours is fermented with a traditional Weizen yeast, which contributes spicy clove and subtle banana.

BLACKMORE

Blackmore-SBC

Black IPA  ABV 6.9% Fermentables: 2-Row, CaraMunich, BlackPrinz, Midnight Wheat Hops: Columbus, Simcoe, Mosaic “Black IPA” is a silly descriptor (black pale ale, right?).

And the dark grains add a touch of black coffee bitterness, …

CHILI PALE ABV 5.7% Fermentables: 2-row, Wheat, Munich, Honey Malt Hops/Spices: Columbus, Habanero, Serrano, Orange Zest When we released our first batch, some folks said that Secret Alphabet wasn’t hot enough.

SMOKED AMBER  ABV 5.2% Fermentables: Smoked Malt, Munich, CaraMunich, Flaked Oats Hops: Santiam, Cascade Smoke & Oats is our tribute to the stunning Rauchbiers of Bamberg, Germany.
