Beresford Brown

American Brown

5.6%

ABV

23

IBU

You asked, we crafted. Here is the American Brown Ale ya'll have been asking for! This Brown Ale was created with mostly Maris Otter, some Two Row, and pinch of chocolate malt to create a smooth and surprisingly crisp beer. The Cascade hops add the right about of bitterness to round it all out.

Fun Fact:

Richard Beresford set aside a portion of his estate later known as the "Beresford Bounty". The trust was used to establish a free school for the poor of St. Thomas and St. Dennis parishes where his land grants were located.

The Beresford Bounty is still at work today and remains one of the longest-surviving unbroken trusts in the world.

Butter Go Nuts

Peanut Butter Porter on Nitro

7.1%

ABV

68

IBU

Our peanut butter porter is full of peanut butter powder and cocoa nibs added during the boil and in secondary to give it a nice resemblance to a Reese Cup. If you like a punch of peanut butter to the nose, we recommend getting the beer served with regular beer gas. If you like your PB creamy, try it on nitro!

Fun Fact:

Archibutyrophobia (pronounced A'-ra-kid-bu-ti-ro-pho-bi-a) is the fear of getting peanut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth.

Cenotes

Mexican Lager

6.4%

ABV

20

IBU

Smooth and easy to drink on a hot summer day. The sweetness from the flaked corn and a heavy dose of Vienna will pull through in our version of a Mexican lager but is balanced by the Zeus and Motueka hops, which gives a little citrus punch. The southern German lager yeast lets this one finish out clean and crisp. This beer will pair nicely with guacamole, tacos, or your personal favorite Mexican dish.

Fun Fact:

Cenotes are natural pits, or sinkholes, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath. The Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico is home to thousands of cenotes.

Drift Dive

Citra IPA

5.8%

ABV

63

IBU

A similar recipe we brewed for our wedding beer, this Citra IPA uses Nugget, Mosaic and, of course, Citra hops! A clean, crisp, West Coast IPA if that’s what you’re craving.

Fun Fact:

Drift diving is a type of scuba diving where the diver is transported by the water movement caused by the tide, an ocean current or in a river.

Dublin Drought

Dry Irish Stout

4.0%

ABV

42

IBU

No one does Dry Irish Stouts like Ireland but we gave it a shot anyway. This beer got the stamp of approval from our friend from Dublin so that's a win in our book! The Dublin Drought is the perfect blend of cocoa, coffee, and roasted malt notes. The best (and only) way to serve this beer is on Nitro to enhance all the flavors and bring them together with creamy goodness.

Fun Fact:

The city of Dublin was founded in 988 (over 1000 years ago!) and originally was a Viking settlement.

Duke It Out

IPA

7.3%

ABV

67

IBU

A solid IPA brewed with 100% Centennial hops. This was a beer we did early on in our homebrewing days and we are excited to debut it on the professional level.

Fun Fact:

Centennial Hops was first created in 1974 and is sometimes referred to as a Super Cascade

Hive Another

Honey Cream Ale

6.0%

ABV

13

IBU

We started homebrewing in Wisconsin so naturally we like our cream ales with a little more ABV than you might be used to. (Google “Wisconsin Cream Ale” if you aren’t sure what we are referencing). We rounded out this beer with 30 lbs of honey but don’t think you are about to drink a glass full of sweat honey nectar. Honey is a fermentable sugar so the yeast already ate most of it before it could get to your glass. What they left behind is pretty tasty though!

Fun Fact:

Honey never spoils! When stored in an airtight container, honey can have an eternal shelf-life.

Humuhumunukunukuapua'a (aka Triggerfish)

P.O.G. Kettle Sour

5.5%

ABV

6

IBU

This P.O.G. kettle sour (Passion fruit - Orange - Grapefruit) is as delicious as the Hawaiian juice puree added to it. Named after the Hawaiian state fish, one sip will make you feel like you're enjoying the pint on the beaches of Kona.

Fun Fact:

The "Milk caps" game other name Pogs, which became popular during the 1990s, originates from the Hawaiian juice POG. The use of POG bottle caps to play the game preceded the game's commercialization.

Ocean Gem

Juicy IPA

6.3%

ABV

49

IBU

We took the term Juicy IPA pretty literal with this beer by using Idaho Gem hops. Combined with the Mosaic hops, you'll notice fruit candy (like Juicy Fruit), citric grapefruit, and some mango on the nose and in the taste. We used flaked barley and oats to give the beer the right mouthfeel and added 55lb of wheat malt to make it hazy. Fermented out with London Fog yeast, it all comes together to make a delicious gem of a beer.

Fun Fact:

The South Carolina state gemstone is Amethyst. The word amethyst derives from Ancient Greek and means "not intoxicated." The ancient Greeks believed that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness and wore amethyst and carved drinking vessels from it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.

Parrotfish

Juicy Pale Ale

5.1%

ABV

46

IBU

Just like a Parrotfish loves grazing on the coral reef, you're going to love grazing on this sessionable, juicy pale ale. Cashmere and Amarillo hops create the juiciness of this beer and cut through any bitterness left behind from the Zeus hops. Coming in at ~5%, it's an easy drinking beer.

Fun Fact:

After a Parrotfish digests the edible portions from the rock, it excretes it as sand, helping create small islands and the sandy beaches. The humphead parrotfish can produce 90 kg (200 lb) of sand each year.

Razzle Mania

Raspberry Wheat

5.1%

ABV

15

IBU

Did you enjoy our Sheep for a Wheat Belgian Wheat and want to step it up a notch? Or maybe you're craving something fruity today? Either way, this beer is for you. We took our Belgian Wheat and added raspberry puree to give it a little razzle dazzle. Wine drinkers looking for a beer that's low on bitterness and has a hit of fruitiness - this beer's for you!

Fun Fact:

An average raspberry has 100 to 120 seeds.

Shelly Beach

Blonde Ale

5.4%

ABV

18

IBU

Our first open water dive as certified scuba divers was at Shelly Beach in Sydney, Australia. It seemed only fitting to name the first beer we put on tap at Indigo Reef after that first dive. Just like our shore dive at Shelly Beach got us hooked on scuba diving, we think this blonde ale will get you hooked on us. The Shelly Beach Blonde Ale is easy to drink making it the perfect beer for a hot day or as a gateway into craft beer if you're new to the scene.

Fun Fact:

Shelly beach is one of only 2 west facing ocean beaches on the east coast of Australia.

Swim Through

Belgian Saison

7.2%

ABV

20

IBU

A Belgian Saison with an extra yeast strain to add complexity and a unique flavor. You'll notice earthy and fruity notes mixed with a peppery and spicy finish. We love the way the Belgian and California Ale yeasts play together to make a delicious beer you'll want more of after the first sip.

Fun Fact:

"Swim through" is a recreational open water diving term for arches and short, clear, tunnels where the light can be seen at the far end. Technically these create an overhead environment but there is no risk of getting lost inside and the risk of entrapment is low.

Wake Up Call

Coffee Blonde Ale

5.3%

ABV

18

IBU

Before coffee became widely available, beer was the popular breakfast drink of choice. We love both types of beverages so we decided to combine the two. Wake Up Call is our Shelly Beach Blonde Ale with coffee grounds from Charleston Coffee Roasters. We think it's the perfect brunch beer but really it can be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Fun Fact:

Coffee beans are only called 'beans' because of the resemblance - they’re actually berries.
