Barrel-Aged Nitro Narwhal

A year spent in freshly emptied Kentucky Bourbon Barrels has softened the roastiness of this Imperial Stout, while lending vanilla and caramel flavors imparted by oak. The finished beer was then nitrogenated, resulting in a silky mouthfeel and a long, warm finish.

Distiller's Grain Bill Barleywine

Over the years, we have aged countless beer styles in freshly emptied bourbon barrels to obtain that wonderful whiskey character that we all love. We decided to pay tribute to the classic American spirit by brewing a beer that captures the essence of Kentucky-borne whiskey. It began with the classic bourbon grain bill comprised of Corn, Barley, and Rye. From there, it was lightly hopped with experimental hop HBC-472 (known for its woody, coconut-like aroma), fermented with our most voracious yeast strain, and then aged in a blend of bourbon barrels from different distilleries for eight months. A big beer with a light body, expect warming notes of rich spicy fruit and oaky vanilla undertones complemented by a dry, yet smooth finish.

Storied Golden Ale

Hop-forward and juicy, Storied Golden Ale shows off the best of new school hops. El Dorado and Amarillo hops give the beer a punch of citrus and tropical fruit flavor, while oats create a hazy appearance and a silky-smooth mouthfeel.

Hazy Little Thing

We’re constantly brewing new IPAs, looking for bold hop flavor. With this beer, our brewers thought it was so good that we decided to serve it straight from the tanks—unfiltered, unprocessed, and raw—to let all the fruit-forward hop flavors shine. The result is a hazy beer with modest bitterness and intense hop character.

Hop Bullet Double IPA

Hop Bullet Double IPA features a new technique: we’re hitting the beer with a double-barreled blast of Magnum hops and lupulin dust—the source of hop flavor and aroma—right into the fermenter for a ballistic burst of aggressive hop character.

Otra Vez Gose with Lime and Agave

This gose-style ale is brewed with lime and agave to give it a sweet-tart flavor, reminiscent of the classic margarita cocktail. It starts with a bright citrus aroma that fades into a semi-sweet malt flavor and finishes with the signature gose tartness, perfect for the warm summer days ahead.
