Chaos Is A Friend Of Mine
Chaos is a Friend of Mine is the result of blending barrels of our base beer to produce the flavor profile of a Belgian Lambic. We begin with a traditional grain bill composed of pilsner malt and raw wheat, which is then boiled for an extended amount of time with aged hops. The wort is then fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels with our diverse house culture. Chaos ensues from the countless strains of yeast and bacteria fighting for dominance, and after 9 - 14 months in the barrel, we introduce the power of blending to bring order back, ultimately creating a beer that's greater than the sum of its parts. Funk takes center stage in this brew, with notes of barnyard, stone fruit, and aged hops. A balanced and clean acidity make this beer tart, yet extremely palatable, with a full body and crisp dry finish. (6.5% ABV)
Careful With That Pineapple Guava, Eugene
Careful with that Pineapple Guava, Eugene is part of our quest to experiment with rare and unique fruits. We put one pound per gallon fresh feijoa (aka Pineapple Guava) onto some of our lambic-inspired base beer for two months before packaging. The beer has a bright tropical fruit aroma, reminiscent of pineapple, guava, apple, and mint. Tastes like artificial sour candy, sweet and tart, accompanied by big fruit character. (6.6% ABV)
Come In Grape, Your Time Is Up | Muscat Edition
'Come in Grape, Your Time is Up' is a seasonal series based around the grape harvest. In fall we collaborate with various wineries to create beers that blur the lines between wine and beer. In this version we partnered up with Castoro Cellars from Paso Robles, CA and used late harvest Muscat grapes. We first created a blend of one year old lambic-inspired base beer, then let that beer sit on the grape juice and must for 8 weeks to go through a secondary fermentation. This golden beer has sweet perfumy and floral aromas reminiscent of a desert wine. The flavor is tart and crisp with some tannic and oak qualities, finishing fairly dry with a lingering fruitiness. (8.5% ABV)
Into The Great Unknown
A dry-hopped lambic-inspired ale in which we utilize a different hop varietal for each batch. We begin by carefully selecting and blending barrels that have been aging for 9 to 14 months. Then, once the desired combination is chosen, we dry hop in the blending tank with a specific variety of hops (in this version, Mosaic), and bottle condition with wine yeast for at least three months. In this first rendition of Into the Great Unknown, the aromas of tropical fruit from the hops work seamlessly to accentuate the funk and acidity of the underlying blend. (6.5% ABV)
A while back we made 'Strawberry Provence' as a single barrel experiment and loved it so much we decided to make a full batch. It is a blend of one year old lambic-inspired base beer, aged on three pounds per gallon of whole frozen strawberries for two months, and a touch of Herbes de Provence added right before packaging. With big jammy strawberry aromas, there's no mistaking what fruit we used in this beer. Sweet, tart, and funky, with slight notes of fresh herbs on the finish that compliments that juicy strawberry character. (6.9% ABV)
Four 5-oz draft pours with cheese & charcuterie pairings. $18.
This rich and lusciously decadent imperial stout is aged on the choicest cacao nibs from Ecuador and bourbon vanilla beans from Madagascar. (10.5% ABV)
Thrillseeker is a "West Coast-style" India pale ale that is sure to push your senses to the edge. It starts with a base of American 2-row malt and a restrained dose of extra light caramel malt to let the hops punch though. Its then generously hopped with Chinook, Summit, Centennial, and Simcoe for a massive citrus and tropical hop profile. Thrillseeker is dry hopped with Simcoe and Chinook for an über fresh resiny aroma. (7.0% ABV)
Cryo Me A River IPA
West Coast-style IPA with Mosaic and Simcoe hops (7.1% ABV)
Hops Of Brixton
The Hops of Brixton is a classic British-style extra special bitter (ESB). It starts with British Maris Otter malt for a toasty backbone thats accented with light and dark British caramel malts, adding distinctive toffee notes. Flaked barley adds a gentle silkiness to the mouthfeel. Hops from the East Kent region of England create a floral and earthy hop profile to perfectly balance the malt. Londons calling!(6.1% ABV)
