Barrel-Aged Madeira Quad with Cherries

This very limited beer is a blend of two vintages of our Ovila Quad—one straight Belgian-style ale and the other with tart cherries. Additional layers of complexity are achieved through aging in oak barrels used to mature Madeira, the fortified wine hailing from the Portuguese island of the same name. The result is a decadent and flavorful blend of cocoa, fig, cherry and raisin notes with hints of wood, caramel, and burnt sugar flavors from barrel aging.

BFD—Beer for Drinking

There are days when you want a beer—just a beer—that hits all the right spots. Well, this is it. No snifters required, no special occasions, just an unfussy, uncomplicated hoppy golden ale brewed to fit in no matter where it goes. This isn’t beer for collecting, this is beer for drinking.

Cherry Chocolate Stout

Cherries and chocolate are a classic flavor combination and these two timeless tastes are together in a new way with this intense dark beer. This rich imperial stout is brewed with Bing cherries and cherry juice and aged on cocoa nibs. The roasted malt flavors of the base beer blend seamlessly with the dark chocolate notes from the cocoa and a hint of cherry flavor brightens the finish in this delicious and robust brew.

Trip in the Woods Narwhal with Red & Black Currants

We aged this rich, chocolatey imperial stout in bourbon barrels with a mix of both red currants and black currants for a pop of sweet and tart flavor. The deep, roasty notes of the stout blend well with the berries and barrels to create complex flavors of cocoa and coconut with a mellow fruit undertone.

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.

Porter

Brewed in the hop-forward American style and featuring a depth of malt flavor and complexity with roasted notes of black coffee and cocoa.
