SECRET ALPHABET

CHILI PALE ABV 5.0%   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 …

BLITHE

Belgian Strong Golden ABV 8.8% 32 IBU Fermentables: 2-Row Pale, Pils, CaraPils, Candi Sugar Hops: Horizon, Styrian Celeia Our brewer’s favorite beer. A simple grain recipe fermented with a characterful Belgian yeast, balanced with elegant, fragrant hops. The yeast lends a ripe fruitiness with a hint of spice, and the alcohol and hops have a drying quality. Blithe is deceptively …

Turtle Ecstasy

IPA (7.3%) Drink Beer. Save Turtles. For our friends at Turtle Survival Alliance.

Wowie Zowie

IPA (7.2%) Fermentables: 2-Row, Wheat, Oat Malt, CaraPils, Flaked Oats Hops: Simcoe, Mosaic, Ekuanot We’re thinking of Wowie Zowie as the hazy counterpart to Killer Diller. Its grain bill is comparable to the other hazy pales that we brew, and the hops are the same combination that we typically use in Killer Diller. Taste them side by side and decide …

WORKING CLASS HERO

Cream Ale   ABV 4.3% Fermentables: 2-Row, Vienna, Flaked Maze Hops: Sterling One of our four year-round offerings. Light grains and earthy hops deliver a convincing performance. Critics agree: this is beer.

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?). 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, …

Ballistic Pickle

Cucumber Sour (3.4%) Gose style ale with sea salt, coriander, cucumber, and dill.

Beleza

Pineapple Ginger IPA (5.5%) Our Fresh Fest collaboration w/ Casa Brasil from Highland Park.

One Hand Clapping

Working Class Hiro

Ginger Matcha Rice Cream Ale ABV 4.0% Fermentables: 2-Row Pale, CaraPils, Flaked Rice, Rice Syrup Hops/Spices: Centennial, Citra, Ginger, Matcha Another play on our basic cream ale. The malt recipe is rather bare-bones, with the addition of rice in place of corn. The rice lightens the taste and perhaps adds a hint of fruit. A subtle grain sweetness with virtually …

Cobbler

Peach Ale (5.6%) 420 lbs. of peach purée and a pinch of cinnamon.

AMBELLINA

Spoonwood AMBELLINA

BELGIAN TRIPEL  ABV 8.2% 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 …

CLOUD TRIP

CLOUD-TRIP-SBC-White-IPA

WHITE IPA  ABV  6.4% Fermentables: 2-Row, Wheat, CaraPils, Oats Hops/Spices: Amarillo, Mandarina, 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 double up the …

BRUNA

Belgian Porter   ABV 7.1%  IBU 30 Fermentables: 2-row, Munich, Chocolate Malt, Special B, Candi Syrup Hops: Cascade, Crystal One of our seven “original lineup” beers, and a brewer favorite. It’s fake news, as far as beer styles are concerned, landing somewhere between a Strong American Porter and a Belgian Trappist Dubbel. Bruna gets its defining character from a combination …

COLD DRIP CITY

COFFEE BLONDE   ABV 5.9% Fermentables: 2-Row, Vienna, Crystal, CaraPils, Flaked Barley, Lactose Hops: Santiam, Cascade Cold Drip City is a basic blonde ale with lactose (milk sugar) that we infuse 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 is a robust …

RED LANTERN

Pomegranate Grapefruit Wheat (5.9%) Brewed for the Red Lantern Bike Shop charity.
