Currently On Tap

  • Back Porch Lager

    We collaborated with the Telluride Blues and Brews festival in Colorado to make an easy-drinking lager. Start your own jam session with its perfect balance of malt and hops.

    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.

    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.

    Oktoberfest

    Our take on the classic festival beer has a silky malt flavor with an initial sweetness that sets up the interplay of mild toffee-like notes and floral European hops.

    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.

    Harvest Wet Hop IPA - Northern Hemisphere Harvest

    Northern Hemisphere features wet hops—picked from the field and into the brewhouse within 24 hours. This complex IPA boasts intense herbal and green hop aromas as well as rose-like and citrus flavor.

  • Boomerang IPA

    Boomerang is an American-style IPA that slings fruit-forward and floral flavors of Australian hops for an assertive, intercontinental escape from winter’s grasp.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

    Wood-Aged Brandy Quad

    We stored this Belgian-style Quad in barrels formerly used to mature brandy. Sip slowly and ponder its mix of flavors: berries, caramel, tannic oak and notes of red wine.
