Our 2016 English-style barleywine aged for 12 months in Rittenhouse Rye barrels. A potent and contemplative combination of sorghum, brown sugar, dates, and prune aromas open in the glass as the beer warms. Layers of vanilla, caramel, and more dried fruit follow with each warming sip. Share and pair with a stinky bleu cheese.
Working Title, a Belgian-style pale ale conditioned with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. Kettle and dry hop additions of Crystal hops provide a bright orange complement to the pineapple and earthy funk of the Brettanomyces. Underneath is a lean, bready malt body that finishes dry and crisp.
Static Electricity is an 8% DIPA brewed with Flaked Oats and Vienna malt grown in Chile. Hopped in the kettle and dry-hopped with a reasonable amount of Simcoe and Falconer's Flight. Apricot and oranges on the nose and palate with a slight bitterness.
Devil's Heart of Gold wheatwine is built on a simple yet massive foundation of American two-row barley and white wheat. We boil the wort for 3 1/2 hours before fermenting with a classic English ale yeast. It's then put to rest for a year in Rittenhouse Rye barrels, which allows the already decadent beer the opportunity to smooth out and take on heightened complexity from the oak. The result is a chestnut hued beer of substantial strength with layers of toffee, maple, and vanilla. Serve cool and sip slowly. Devil's Heart of Gold is ready to drink now, but will also reward proper cellaring.
Imperial Stout with Sump Coffee
Our imperial coffee stout is made in collaboration with the devilishly handsome Scott Carey & Co. at South City's Sump Coffee. For this year's batch, we chose a coffee from the Cauca region of Colombia, which provides a classic coffee stout profile full of caramel, maple, and pecan.
Pils is our dry-hopped, unfiltered lager created with 100% German malt and Tettnang and Saphir hops in the kettle and fermenter. Spicy noble hop character over sweet Pilsner malt. Pepper, lemon ice, black tea. This is the first iteration in pursuit of the fizzy yellow beer of my dreams. Brewed for our friends at Edgewild and shared in our tasting room. 5% ABV, 30 IBUs
Inspired by a mutual love of chocolate oranges, 'Til the Night Closes In is an imperial milk stout we created with our good friends at Jester King. We wanted something dark and rich accented by the brightness of fresh citrus, so Jeff and Averie brought up a bunch of dried tangerines and fresh satsuma oranges from central Texas to punch up the Mandarina Bavaria hops in the whirlpool. After fermentation we steeped the beer on cacao nibs, Madagascar vanilla beans, and fresh Valencia orange peel. The result is smooth and sweet with a tart pop of citrus. Enjoy!
