Our Beer

Unfortunately we’re kind of selfish when it comes to brewing. We brew styles that pique our own interests and allow us to learn more about our craft. But what we strive for is to make sure there’s something for everyone in this ADHD-approach to beer making. Most beers listed below will not be available all the time, but as we continue to evolve as a brewery, you’ll see many of these reappear, along with exciting new releases. Maintaining the fun part about brewing is important to us, so we try not to get too tied down to any particular styles or brands.

Malt-Centric



Altbier in glass

Altbier

Northern German Altbier

Altbier is a Northern German-style malt forward amber ale, native to the Dusseldorf area. We've used traditional German hops and employed a yeast that is historical to brewing these types of beers. It's crisp, malt forward (biscuity, light caramel) and has a moderate hop bitterness. We've captured all the CO2 naturally for a gorgeous head of foam and a creamy texture. A fantastic food companion!

ABV: 5.4%

Anniversary Ale

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout

To celebrate our Anniversary, we brew a rich, “motor oil”– like high gravity stout with vanilla bean and maple syrup. The entire batch is then aged in Kentucky Bourbon barrels, some of which are then spiked with different ingredients. Generally four releases commence with a different night on every Anniversary week in May, and are primarily released in 22 oz bottles.
