Soft & Hazy DIPA (7.5%) Fermentables: 2-Row, Oat Malt, Wheat, CaraPils, Rye Hops: Ekuanot, Denali A bigger, juicier version of Below the Fold. These beers are known for their soft, full mouthfeel and permanent haze, achieved through the use of large amounts of protein-rich grains such as oats, wheat, and rye. They are also known for a low bitterness despite …



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?). But it’s become a recognized sub-style of the ever popular, boldly hopped, American IPA. The hops bring an assertive bitterness with berry and pine resin. 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. So we upped the ante on the chili peppers, and now there’s definitely some heat. It’s not over-the-top ghost pepper torture type heat, but there’s no mistaking the capsaicin. …


Barley Storm Strong ALe Spoonwood Brewing-1

English Strong Ale 7.6% Fermentables: 2-Row, CaraMunich, Special B, Honey Malt, Coffee Malt Hops: Columbus, Willamette This third version of Barley Storm most resembles an English Old Ale.

Below the Fold

Below the Fold

Soft & Hazy Pale 5.5% Fermentables: 2-Row, Oat Malt, Wheat, CaraPils Hops: Citra, Amarillo, El Dorado We’ve finally gotten around to brewing a “New England Style” Pale, a sub-genre arguably spawned by the Alchemist’s Heady Topper out of Vermont. These beers are known for their soft, full mouthfeel and permanent haze, achieved through the use of large amounts of protein-rich …



Barleywine   ABV 11%   IBU 69 Fermentables: 2-Row, CaraRye Hops: Horizon, Goldings, Crystal The biggest, baddest beer we’ve ever brewed. This one is all malt, all the time. The heavily concentrated, not-quite-syrupy malt character is achieved by mashing a large amount of 2-row for a small kettle fill and boiling it for three hours, which is twice as long …

Imminent Percolations


Imminent Percolations – Coffee Cream Stout (4.1%) Fermentables: 2-Row, Munich, CaraMunich, Roasted Barley, Kiln Coffee Hops/Spices: Willamette, Lactose, Coffee This just might be the smallest beer that we’ve ever brewed. It’s actually a tad lower in ABV than most American light lagers. But the lactose adds a fullness and sweet creaminess that makes it drink a more “bigly,” despite its …

All Downhill

ALL DOWN HILL Vanilla Cream Ale SBC

Vanilla Cream Ale   ABV 5.0% Fermentables: 2-Row, Wheat, CaraPils, Lactose Hops/Spices: Willamette, Vanilla All Downhill is similar to Working Class Hero, our straightforward “beer flavored” beer. The obvious difference is the addition of vanilla and lactose, which play on the “cream” idea (even if creaminess isn’t typical for the Cream Ale style). The subtle difference is the addition of …



IMPERIAL RED ALE   ABV 7.5% Fermentables: 2-Row, Vienna, Red X, CaraMunich Hops: Columbus, Mosaic, Simcoe Hydra Slayer is in the vain of a double IPA, with a firm but well-integrated bitterness. The striking deep red color is achieved through a combination of German Vienna and “Red X” malts, with a touch of caramel malt for enhanced color and sweetness. …


No Bones About It

Pale Ale (5.3%) IBU 29 Fermentables: 2-row, Munich, Honey Malt, Chocolate Malt Hops: Citra We brew this beer exclusively for Carson City Saloon and their soon-to-open sister location, Coughlin’s Law.
