Urban Trail Hoppy Pale Ale
Brewed in collaboration with Highland Brewing Company, this hop-forward pale ale is part of the Brewing for Greenways benefit to help establish green spaces and trails throughout Buncombe County. This beer features intense fruit-forward hops hailing from the Southern Hemisphere including Wakatu, Waimea, Galaxy, and Nelson Sauvin for a layered tropical hop aroma.
Hop & Sour
This beer was created as a “kettle sour”— like a Berliner Weiss, or Gose— and then finished with bright hop flavors. It features a blend of tart malt flavor, with a pop of fruity, and intense hop aromas from extensive dry hopping re-sulting a unique, quenching, and hop-forward beer with very low bitterness.
Appalachian Brown Ale (wet hop)
This is our mountain take on the classic American brown ale brewed right here in Mills River with locally grown wet hops from the NC State Mountain Horticultural Center just up the road. This beer has complex roasted malt flavor and a moderate kiss of hops, yet remains easy drinking and great for a warm autumn evening.
Blue Ridge Red
This malt-forward monster is bold- with notes of baker's cocoa, molasses and dark roasted coffee. This massive imperial stout is in-credibly complex, rich, and intense and will develop in the bottle for years to come.
Barrel-Aged Dry Hop Drops
As brewers, we found that the last little bits of beer left in the tank after dry hopping often had the most intense hop flavor. We collected this ultra-hoppy beer and placed it into bourbon barrels for nearly 7 months, then we dry hopped it again for a blend of intense hop aroma, and a cordial-like malt flavor like no other beer we’ve ever made.
Brewed by a team of employees here at our Mills River brewery, Mai-nd-Bockling Beer is our take on a blond Mai-Bock- a light colored traditional German-style beer. Though it is light in color, this beer has an uncommon depth of malt flavor, yet remains crisp and extremely drinkable.
