Currently On Tap
Audition Salted Caramel
A heap of caramel malts and a dash of common salt drive the caramel-toffee flavors and subtle tartness of this dark gose-style beer.
Audition Belgian Blonde
This genre-bending beer has the bright, resinous hop profile of American IPAs blended with the dry, complex yeast character of Belgian farmhouse ales.
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.
Beer Camp Across America - Ballast Point - Electric Ray
A play on the fish’s scientific name—Torpedo californica—Electric Ray pays homage to our Hop Torpedo, the source of much of this beer’s big flavor. Grapefruit and floral notes deliver a high-voltage hit of hop flavor.
Vienna lager is our take on the classic European amber lager. It has bright reddish highlights and a pronounced bready malt aroma reminiscent of its Austrian counterparts.
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.
Rain Check Spiced Stout
Rain Check Spiced Stout is our answer to the merciless wet weather that plagued and slowed the construction of our new brewery in Mills River, NC. This dark, rich, and roasty beer helps us forget the delays—a Rain Check we’ll take anytime.
O’Brother Where Aldo
A magnetic blend of aromas including tropical fruit, fresh dill, and cedar spice pull you into this copper-colored brew that boasts earthy and herbal flavors and arresting complexity.
Trip in the Woods
At the edge of the woods is an inviting aroma of baker’s cocoa, brown sugar and coconut, while the forest’s depths swell with smokiness in this blended beer.
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.
Tea leaves long famous overseas bolster this English-style IPA with the rich citrus aroma and flavor of bergamot oranges.
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.
Beer Camp Across America - Bell’s - Maillard’s Odyssey
Rich, dark, and roasty. Taking its name in part from the famed Maillard reaction—the “browning” of sugars and amino acids—that creates the wonderful caramelized toffee-like and roasted flavors so abundant in this beer.
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.
