Drop Dead Red Ale is a malt forward dark amber ale. There are caramel and roasted notes, and a slight English hop character. This is a very smooth beer that leaves you wanting another sip to explore the subtle complexities.
Pirate Bear Ale
Pirate Bear Ale is a hoppy American pale ale. Large late American hop additions give a big aroma and flavor balanced with a sweet malty backbone for a very drinkable pale ale.
Gearhead Ale is a malt forward dark amber ale. There are caramel and roasted notes, and a slight English hop character. This is a very smooth beer that leaves you wanting another sip to explore the subtle complexities.
Liquid Sunshine is a Bavarian style Hefewiezen.¬†This beer has the traditional clove aroma with a touch of lemon peel, but there are no spices added. The unique flavor comes from a traditional yeast selection which has been used in Germany for centuries.
Bad Omen IPA
Bad Omen IPA is deep red, almost black in color, however, there is very little roasted or dark chocolate flavor. This beer is deceivingly dark with a light body and finishes dry with¬†a higher alcohol content (7.5% abv). This is the base for a showcase of American hops. Very fresh floral and citrus aromas dominate this dark IPA. A great warmer for the winter months.
