Using all German ingredients, except for the water, each batch is another baby step towards recreating what we’ve experienced in Munich. Straw in color, with a subtly and nuance that is hard to describe and instead needs to be experienced! Notes of fresh baked bread, herbal tea, and hay create a beer style that is praised for it’s liter-worthy drinkability.
Not the amber colored Marzen-style beer you may be used to, our version is the paler, modern example that is served at Oktoberfest in Munich these days. Compared to our Helles, it’s a bit richer in flavor, a touch hoppier, golden in color, and fits in a little more abv. The drinking experience has been a favorite for our brewers, who have been drinking it in the steins pictured, by the liter.
Italian-Style Pilsner w/ Saphir & Spalt
Just a little tip of the hat, to a certain Italian brewery that has been making an outstanding dry hopped Pils since ’96. We’ve got a long way to go, as a young brewery making Lagerbier, but hopefully by 2042, we’ll have this beer much closer to Agostino’s shining example of Pils perfection.
After drinking this dry hopped lager style from a few Italian breweries at the Pils & Love Fest earlier this year, we knew it was only a matter of time until we made our own version of it. Brewed with Italian Pilsner malt and some of our favorite German hops; Saphir, Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon, the result is medium-bodied with a soft malt presence and enough bitterness to create that snappiness that you hope for in a Pils. The aromatics and flavor are full of herbal notes, with a sage and honey character that carries into the dry finish.
West Coast IPA w/ Nelson & Mosaic
We took our West Coast IPA is Dead recipe, lightened up the color, and switched hops over to Mosaic and Nelson. Super punchy on the aromatics, with some well rounded bitterness and lots of ripe mango, Riesling, and that cotton candy-pixie dust that Connor Casey loves so much!
West Coast IPA Is Dead
West Coast IPA w/ Citra & Simcoe
A clear IPA brewed without crystal malt to keep the color light and malt flavor low in order for all the Simcoe and Citra hops to shine through like crazy. Clean. Bitter. Hoppy.
That Right There
Hazy IPA w/ Idaho 7 & Amarillo
Hazy IPA w/ Idaho 7 & Amarillo.
This one starts with heaps of Golden Naked Oats from our good pals at Simpsons Malt in Tivetshall, UK to help fill out the body, and then gets mashed together with Canadian barley to keep the color on the lighter side. With this one, we branched out a bit and used some different hop varieties than what we normally would go for in this style, and we really love the results. Dry hopped with a blend of Crosby Hops Idaho 7 and Roy Farms Amarillo, we get a fun mix of flavors and aromas like pina colada, jasmine, and orange zest.
Hazy DIPA w/ Milk Sugar, Citra, Strata, Idaho 7 & Amarillo
Okay Wow - Hazy DIPA w/ Milk Sugar, Citra, Strata, Idaho 7, & Amarillo, 8.7% abv
Richer and thicker with the addition of milk sugar, and then hit with a magical blend of hops that makes you say....wait for it....OKAY WOW! Hits with some really fun layers of lime sorbet, frosting & mango.
Sour DIPA w/Strawberry, Pineapple & Passionfruit
The ultimate juice bomb has arrived! …and all it took was 2.5 lbs of fruit per gallon to get there, ha ha! ? It hits with a light sourness that creates a tart juiciness to the palate that’s refreshing in the heat, (aka it’s not overly sour). The aroma is straight fruit, with the pineapple and passion fruit jumping out of the glass. The strawberry is a bit more in the background, but definitely hits on the mouthfeel. The
Freestyle Farms Motueka (in the dry hop) brings a touch of limey goodness to the mix, and a soft bitterness that holds the whole thing together.
Just Two Things: Citra/Strata
DDH Hazy DIPA W/Citra & Strata
DDH Hazy DIPA w/ Citra & Strata
The first in a series of beers highlighting how the combination of two hop varieties can create something extra special together. Our hand selected Citra & Strata take center stage in a way that work out so well together, that we kinda just sat around and kept tasting and smelling, and tasting and smelling, and tasting and smelling. Milky pale yellow in color, with layers of pineapple juice, strawberry smoothie, white frosting, orange marmalade, raspberry leaves, and with the devil’s lettuce in the long, lingering finish.
Don't Wake Me Up
Hazy TIPA W/Citra, Strata & Mosaic
Hazy Triple IPA w/ Citra, Strata & Mosaic.
Double dry hopped with Citra and then hit with equal parts Mosaic and Strata. Raw wheat and old fashioned oats help create the base, but it’s really all about the hops for this one. Milky yellow in color, with flavorful hoppy layers of passionfruit, guava, and kumquat.
