Red Wine Barrel-Aged Narwhal
We aged our Narwhal Imperial Stout in oak barrels formerly used to mature red wine. The influence of the oak and wine cuts through and brightens the massive malt body, adding fruit-forward flavors with a round, vanilla-like sweetness from the wood.
Hoppy Wheat IPA
Wheat beers tend to fall on the mild and fruity end of the beer spectrum, but as hop heads, we’re turning that idea upside down by brewing a bold, hop-forward version of a wheat IPA. We’re using the light, lemony tang of wheat malt as a backdrop for layers of citrusy, grapefruit-like hop flavor from the use of whole-cone hops.
Dark in color but light in body, this German “black beer” is one of our more sessionable offerings. Slight smoke rises through the roasty nose, and a mouth-coating creaminess sets up a bittersweet, dry finish.
Otra Vez is a tangy twist on the nearly extinct gose style. It combines the zip of prickly pear cactus with a hint of grapefruit for a bright and refreshing finish.
We’re exploring the roots of Germany’s famous Oktoberfest beers. Each year, we partner with a different German brewer to explore a different approach to the style. This year we’re working with Bamberg, Germany’s Mahrs Bräu on a new version of the classic style. This authentic version of the festival beer is deep golden in color with a rich malt complexity, but with a noticeable spicy hop character from the use of the nearly forgotten Record hop varietal.
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.
