Currently On Tap

  • Pale Ale

    Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic.

    Draught-Style Pale Ale

    The draught version of our flagship bottle-conditioned Pale Ale, Draught-style Pale Ale is slightly sweeter and lower in alcohol, making it a nice session beer.

    Kellerweis®

    A hazy wheat ale—untamed, unfiltered and unafraid. With a full, fruity aroma and notes of spicy clove and banana bread, Kellerweis is truly a unique brew.

    Torpedo® Extra IPA

    The first beer to feature our “Hop Torpedo”—a revolutionary dry-hopping device that controls how much hop aroma and what kind is imparted into beer without adding additional bitterness.

    Porter

    Brewed in the hop-forward American style and featuring a depth of malt flavor and complexity with roasted notes of black coffee and cocoa.

    Stout

    Big, rich, bold, black as night, and filled with the wild-eyed passion of which dreams are made.

  • Old Chico Brand™ ESB

    Old Chico ESB is our take on the classic “extra special” English pub ale: robust yet easy drinking with a toasty biscuit-like malt body and spicy and floral hop aroma from American-grown English hop varietals. ESB is delicately balanced and pairs well with summertime solidarity.

    Old Chico Brand™ Crystal Wheat

    This filtered beer is brewed with malted wheat and barley, and perfectly balanced by unique Crystal hops.

    Harvest Wet Hop IPA - Northern Hemisphere Harvest

    The fourth in our 2014 Harvest series, Northern Hemisphere Harvest® spans a flavor spectrum from bold, earthy, green hop flavors to hints of citrus, fresh herbs and pine.

    Flipside® Red IPA

    Flipside Red IPA is a rebuttal to the mild-mannered beers of summer. Tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors from the use of whole-cone Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial hops are the perfect notes for this in-between season.

    Pilsner

    German-style pilsners are the original session beers. Our version of this classic style is loaded with floral and spicy hop flavor and balanced by a crisp and dry finish.

    Beer Camp Double IPA

    This is a true “West-Coast” style double IPA using huge amounts of hops, both in the kettle for flavor, and afterwards in the torpedo to impart a massive hop aroma. The light malt body and dry finish hide the power in this deceptively drinkable hop-bomb.

  • Best Bitter

    Brewed with imported English malts, this medium-bodied, copper-colored beer is a rendition of the popular English Bitter.

    Boomerang IPA

    A “Yankee-Aussie” IPA featuring the light malt body of an American IPA blended with the robust flavors of Southern Hemisphere hops.

    Ovila® Abbey Tripel

    Ovila Abbey Tripel is a deceptively robust golden ale with complex floral hop notes and a traditional Belgian yeast’s fruity, peppery kick.

    Hoptimum® Imperial IPA

    Hoptimum is the biggest whole-cone IPA we have ever produced—a whole-cone hurricane of flavor. Aggressively hopped, dry-hopped, AND torpedoed, Hoptimum delivers ultra-intense flavors to hop fanatics everywhere.

    Narwhal Imperial Stout

    Inspired by the mysterious creature that dwells in the deepest Arctic seas, Narwhal Imperial Stout is midnight black and bold—with notes of baker’s cocoa and dark roasted coffee. This massive imperial stout is incredibly complex and explores the darkest depths of malt flavor.

    Knightro Irish-style Stout

    Black in color but surprisingly light in body with rich caramel and chocolate malty flavors.  It has a creamy mouthfeel and gentle carbonation from the use of a high percentage of Nitrogen instead of the typical carbon dioxide.

  • Celebration IPA

    A special ale for the holidays, Celebration IPA features the first hops of the growing season. This pioneering ale is full of complex flavors and aromas from the generous use of whole cone American hops.
