  • Hops On The Vine
    Almanac IPA
    ABV 7.0 IBU 78
    Available in Cans

    It’s all about the balance with this brilliant golden IPA.

    Pours with a frothy white head that is accompanied by a pleasant hop aroma which has hints of pine and fresh lemon.

    An excellent blend of northwestern hops and a touch of biscuit malt give Almanac IPA a refined bitter finish which is dry, refreshing, and very easy to drink.

  • Apricot Wheat
    Apricot Wheat
    ABV: 6.0 IBU:14

    A slight sweet fruit flavor which slowly fades to a pleasant tartness that compliments the bready malt flavor of this full bodied wheat beer. Similar to biting into a fresh apricot this beer is velvety soft with subtle sweet and tangy flavors.

  • Barnstorm Ale
    Barnstorm Ale
    ABV 6.8 IBU 40

    Our craft beer quest brings us through Dusseldorf with Barnstorm Ale. We’ve taken a Maibock recipe (sweet, bready malts combined with herbal,spicy Noble Hops) and brewed it with American ale yeast to create a crisp,hop forward Altbier. Well balanced and medium bodied with a slightly dry finish, Barnstorm is the perfect match for wherever your adventures take you.

  • Berliner Weisse
    Berliner Weisse
    ABV 5.1 IBU 5

    Style originated in 16th century Germany as a wheat beer that was bottled and then buried in warm ground to ferment again. This created a sour and acidic beer that could be mixed with fruit syrups and other styles of beer & became the most popular alcoholic beverage in the region by the 19th century. We have created this beer in the traditional method of allowing the wort to “sour” before fermentation. You will notice a light straw color body and a clean white head. It has a sour lemon flavor, slight fruitiness and puckering mouth feel

  • Blueberries
    Berry Cider
    ABV 7.0 IBU 0

    We start with the juice from the same apples we use for our Hard Apple Cider and add a hundred pounds of fresh berries. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries in this favorite cider and a tart berry flavor that is refreshing and crisp. Our berry cider usually packs a punch at 7.0 ABV, but is deceivingly light in body and taste.

    We serve it in a 12 oz goblet so you can appreciate the fresh berry and apple aroma and the beautiful color. Perfect on a summer day and a great alternative to our fantastic beer varieties.

  • Big Sipper IPA
    ABV 5.8 IBU 71

    Go BIG with your “sipping sessions,” when sitting down with this IPA. It’s copper in color, and kissed with an aroma of citrus & pine. The Big Sipper packs a punch to your palate thanks to its Simcoe hops, and provides a good finish courtesy of the Citra and Chinook hops included in the brew – we call it the Big Sipper, you’ll simply call it “GOOD!”

  • Cascade Pale
    Cascade Pale
    ABV: 6.2 ABV: 48

    Named for the Cascade Mountain Range in the great Northwest, this single hop pale ale speaks the language of endeavor. With a citrus, floral aroma, and brilliant white head; the crisp lemon and grapefruit essences dance on your tongue like a springtime snowdrift. Easy drinking and even-handed, this is a Pale Ale for the scenic route.

  • Cascara Cider
    Cascara Cider
    ABV: 7.2

    Cascara, which means “husk”, “peel” or “skin” in Spanish, is the dried skins of coffee cherries. These pulped skins are collected after the seeds (aka, coffee beans) have been removed from the cherries. In this form the cherries have a spicy tobacco character.
    Our friends at Villa Myriam Coffee brought us a 50 lb bag of cascara and asked if we would be able to use it to make a beer or cider – why not? We decided to throw the cascara in a fermenting batch of dry cider and see what happened. After fermentation the cider aged on the cascara for two weeks before being kegged. The final product is a very dry cider with notes of black pepper, tobacco and a hint of spicy pepper which should pair very well with a sweet cheese or even compliment a spicy entrée like Pad Thai or Coconut Curry.

  • Chocolate Milk Stout
    ABV: 5.3 IBU: 20

    Dark chocolate color and a crisp light tan head compliment the malty, vanilla chocolate aroma that you will notice immediately. The beginning notes of vanilla transition to chocolate cocoa notes & a roasted malty finish. This stout is brewed with a variety of dark malts and lactose sugar which is added at the end of the brewing process. Whole cocoa nibs are added to the fermenter at the end of fermentation & the beer is allowed to age on the nibs for 10 days, to pick up the dark chocolate character.

  • Golden Dry Cider Can
    Delicious Golden Dry Cider
    ABV: 6.9 IBU: n/a

    Our Delicious Golden Dry Cider starts with apples from Washington state and is then fermented with Champagne yeast. Not as sweet as its relatives, this is a mature cider that has been allowed to develop and gain complex flavor all while retaining a mild apple flavor in the finish. Suggested Food Pairings: Blue/Muenster Cheese, Rib Eye Steak, Pork Belly, Caramelized Pear and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

    Synchronized flavors and carbonation cultivate the palate without the effect of tongue fatigue. Whether sitting, standing, hitching or pulling, this toe tapping cider won’t wear wobbly.

    Some secrets of its stamina are known, more become apparent when you see and try it for yourself. Even if you’ve been drinking ciders for as long as we have, there’s a fresh new thrill wating for you. It is tastier, smoother, more golden in color, and more flavorful than anything else in its class.

    It’s good to the core!

    Goathead Hador Doppelbock

A Bavarian specialty first brewed by Munich monks and revered as a staple beverage, thus it was lovingly referred to as “liquid bread.”

Our flagship pilsner has a clear and light straw body, complimented by a white head and a noteworthy amount of lacing on your glass as it is consumed. You will notice sweet malty characteristics in the aroma as well as mild aromatics of noble hops, inviting you to enjoy this refreshing medium body beer – just don’t drink 15.
