SLICK LEG

Slick Leg Session IPA Spoonwood Brewing

Session IPA      ABV 4.3%  IBU 50 Fermentables: 2-Row, Honey Malt, CaraPils Hops: Citra, Denali We brew this beer with yeast from Stunt Double around this same time every year. It contains about as much alcohol as a flavorless American light lager, but it’s hopped aggressively with Citra and Denali, which are citrusy and tropical. The idea of a …

STUNT DOUBLE

Spoonwood Brewing Stunt Double Kolsch Beer

Kolsch   ABV 5.3%   IBU 21 Fermentables: 2-Row, Pils, Vienna, Munich, CaraPils Hops: Apollo, Hallertau We call this one Stunt Double because it was originally brewed as a stand-in for Working Class Hero. It is similar in appearance and strength, but it has a hoppiness that isn’t present in Hero. The malt flavor is lightly sweet but less cereal-like …

CLOUD TRIP

CLOUD-TRIP-SBC-White-IPA

WHITE IPA  ABV  6.2%  IBU 41 Fermentables: 2-Row, Wheat, CaraPils, Oats Hops/Spices: Amarillo, Mandarina Bavaria, Orange Zest, Coriander A Belgian witbier at heart. But in the kettle, it takes a turn toward IPA country. Pale and hazy from suspended yeast and proteins, and spiced with orange zest and coriander, the way a witbier ought to be. American and German hops …

BLACKMORE

Blackmore-SBC

Black IPA  ABV 6.4%   IBU 42 Fermentables: 2-Row, CaraMunich, BlackPrinz, Midnight Wheat Hops: Apollo, Cascade, Simcoe “Black IPA” is a silly descriptor (black pale ale, right?). But it’s become a recognized sub-style of the ever popular, boldly hopped, American IPA. The hops bitterness is restrained, making room for a hint of dark grain bitterness, with coffee and dark chocolate …

AMBELLINA

Spoonwood AMBELLINA

BELGIAN TRIPEL  ABV 9.0% IBU  29 Fermentables: 2-Row, Pilsner, Candi Sugar Hops: Apollo, Hallertau Blanc A traditional Belgian golden strong ale with the addition of dry-hopping. Ambellina is built upon a simple grain bill (2-Row and Pilsner malts) with Candi Sugar to enhance fermentability. The Hallertau Blanc hops play well with the fruit and spice of the Belgian yeast, adding …

WHITE HOT RAGE

BELGIAN WIT   ABV  5.1%  IBU  18 Fermentables: Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Oats Hops/Spices: Apollo, Orange Zest, Coriander, Habanero, White Pepper “I’m sorry, but that really steams me. That really burns me up. I mean, I am filled with a White Hot Rage!” -Barney Stinson.

GOOD APOLLO

Good-Apollo-Spoonwood-Brewing-Pittsburgh

Pale Lager ABV 5.6% IBU 44 Fermentables: 2-row, CaraPils, Caramel malt  Hops: Apollo Another Coheed and Cambria inspired beer, named for their third album. Simply put, we borrowed some German lager yeast from Penn Brewery to ferment a pale wort and added a bunch of Apollo hops. The end result is lightly sweet and doughy with a moderate bitterness and …

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 5.4%  IBU 23 Fermentables: 2-row, Victory, CaraMunich, Chocolate Malt Hops/Spices: Santiam, Willamette, Peanut Butter This version of How Now is flavored with PB2, which is a dehydrated peanut butter. Much of the natural oils are removed, which makes it compatible with beer. The base beer is the same as usual, with a hint of caramel malt …

WORKING CLASS HERO

working-class-hero-spoonwood-brewing-cream-ale

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.

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 …
