Ragnarok

Ragnarok

Ale Fermented with Elderberries, Black Currants, Red Raspberries & Black Cherry Juice
Made With: Black Currants, Elderberry, Raspberry, Black Cherry Juice

Borrowing the Norse term for the “end of the world”, the Ragnarok is equal parts Strong Ale, Scottish Ale and Viking metal concert. Dark. Smokey. A little on the dirty* side. This fruit-based fermentation starts out with a complex sour edge and mellows over time.

*The earthiest, peatiest, best kind of “dirty” there is.

Yodeler

Belgian Inspired Barleywine Ale Bottled with Brettanomyces
Made With: Brettanomyces Claussenii

With rich toffee & caramel flavors (and a kick-in-the-pants ABV) this Belgian Barleywine is ALMOST too big for its lederhosen. Lucky for you, we reined it in with heavy ester strains of yeast that add a light, tropical aroma and creamy head. YodelayheeHOO YA!

Aureus

Aureus

Ale Brewed with Orange Peel and Vanilla Bean
Made With: Orange Peel, Vanilla Bean

Mmm, can you taste those vanilla notes? No. You can’t. During fermentation we add enough beans to create a distinctly creamy head texture, but not enough to distract from the predominant banana and citrus flavors of this robust golden strong ale.

The Plague

The Plague

Ale Fermented With Red Raspberries, Blackberries & Blueberries
Made With: Brettanomyces Lambicus

It started with a Belgian-inspired stout and our French Oak Petit Syrah wine casks. Aged and unaged batches were then blended & fermented over a trio of fresh briar berries. The result? A dark, wild brew that’s infectiously complex.

Apples & Pears

Ale Fermented with Apple Juice, Pears and Elderflowers
Made With: Brettanomyces Lambicus, Claussenii and White Wine Yeast

Like a Brit with a cockney accent, this wild ale is both inspired by English ciders and true to its roots in Belgian farmhouse funk. Secondary fermentation with Brettanomyces, white wine yeast, elderflowers & the namesake fruits results in a tasty bouquet of dry, tart and floral notes. No porky.

Relic

Relic

Made With: Relic Strain

Long story short – we came into possession of a French Monastic cabinet dated from the 17th century and, naturally, set to work extracting a yeast strain from the layers of wax used to preserve it. Hops were added sparingly, allowing the uniquely earthy, musty and citrusy flavors of this ancient strain to shine.
