Currently On Tap

  • 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.

    No Middle Ground

    North Carolina-based All About Beer Magazine and Counter Culture Coffee united the two tasty liquids their names bear using tropical fruit-inclined hops and an Ethiopian coffee.

    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.

    Vintage Bigfoot

    Famously for its aggressive hopiness, vintage Bigfoot, gains more subtlety over time. As the hops fade to the background, the robust malts take over and notes of brandied cherries, dates, cocoa, leaf tobacco, and caramel come to the fore.

    Best Bitter

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

    Hop Hunter IPA

    Steam distilled hop oil, gathered right in the hop fields, gives a mighty boost to the floral and citrus notes of traditional whole-cone hops for intense, unmatched IPA aromatics.

  • Scotch Ale

    This Scotch Ale is deep red in color possessing a strong malt flavor with a very light hop character.

    Barrel-Aged Bigfoot

    Barrel-Aged Bigfoot is an incredibly complex version of our legendary barleywine, rich with intense bittersweet malt flavors of burnt sugar and raisin with a touch of vanilla from its time in barrels.

    Nooner Pilsner

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

    Knightro Irish-style Stout

    Black in color but 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 carbon dioxide.

    Beer Camp - Hoppy Lager

    This hop heavy beer combines intense citrus and floral hop flavors with the clean, classic malt body of a hearty blonde lager for a crisp but aggressive take on the India Pale Lager.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

    Barrel-aged Narwhal

    Barrel-Aged Narwhal is our massive Imperial Stout aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels. This beer has layers of malt flavor with notes of espresso and baker’s cocoa with a touch of vanilla from the barrels.

    Bigfoot Barleywine-style Ale

    Bigfoot is a beast of a beer, brimming with bold flavors of bittersweet malt and heaps of aggressive whole-cone Pacific Northwest hops.
