Ardennes

American Kolsch

5.7%

ABV

27

IBU

Scott Salamone's winning recipe from our homebrew competition in February 2020 that is light, crisp, and refreshing. The hallertau minterfrant hops will provide a lightly flowery and spicy aroma but the body of the beer comes from the Vienna malt. We think you'll enjoy this American twist on a German classic.

Fun Fact:

The Battle of the Bulge, also known as the Ardennes Counteroffensive, was the last major German offensive campaign on the Western Front during World War II, and took place from 16 December 1944 to 25 January 1945.

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.

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.

Goliath Grouper

Double IPA

8.7%

ABV

74

IBU

Hop forward with notes of citrus and pine from Amarillo and Centennial hops, this beer is more bitter than a standard IPA. Behind the hops, you'll notice light caramel and biscuit added by the grain to create this big, bold, West Coast double IPA.

Fun Fact:

A goliath grouper’s age can be estimated using annual growth rings in its dorsal fin rays, much like those found within tree trunks.

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.

Into the Blue

Blueberry Wheat

5.0%

ABV

15

IBU

We partnered with Boone Hall Farms again, this time for blueberry season! We added 210lb of their hand-picked blueberries to our Belgian Wheat to give it a fresh and fruity twist. Don't let the color fool you into thinking you're drinking Razzle Mania - one sip and you'll taste the blueberry deliciousness.

Fun Fact:

The blueberry is one of the only foods that is truly naturally blue in color. The pigment that gives blueberries their distinctive color—called anthocyanin—is the same compound that provides the blueberry’s amazing health benefits.

Knightfish

Pineapple IPA

6.2%

ABV

62

IBU

An IPA full of fruity flavor, partially from pineapple puree and partially from the Norwegian Voss Kveik yeast, which gives off fruits notes as it ferments at higher temperatures. We let the beer free rise and ferment at 86 degrees and used Nugget, Warrior, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops to round out the flavor profile. This beer is named after the Pineapplefish found in Australia. The armor-like scales of the fish resemble a knight's armor and…a pineapple!

Fun Fact:

Pineapple is a symbol for 'Welcome'. Legend has it that sea captains of New England would spear a pineapple on a fence post in front of his house to let his friends know of his safe return from sea and as an invitation to come visit.

Mola Mola

Juicy IPA

5.9%

ABV

50

IBU

Our Mola Mola (aka Sunfish) is a juicy, (sometimes) hazy IPA we know you’ll enjoy. We used Warrior, Citra, Amarillo, and Mosaic hops combined with London Ale III yeast. Even if you traditionally don’t enjoy juicy/New England IPAs, we encourage you to give this one a try. It has the right amount of bitterness and juiciness to satisfy every type of IPA drinker.

Fun Fact:

Female Mola Mola fish can produce as many as 300 million eggs at a time, more than any other known vertebrate.

Monona

Passion Fruit Kettle Sour

5.6%

ABV

6

IBU

A well-balanced, fruity kettle sour. We added passion fruit puree to this kettle sour to give it a punch of tropical fruitiness to balance nicely with the sourness from the lactobacillus.

Fun Fact:

Lake Mendota and Lake Monona are separated by an isthmus, known as the Madison Isthmus. Lake Monona, the smaller of the two lakes, is typically frozen for 107 days a year, give or take 10 days.

Pearl Diver

Juicy Pale Ale

4.6%

ABV

46

IBU

Don't let the lower ABV of this beer fool you. It's packed full of flavor! Citra and Simcoe provide a juicy, citrus flavor and are preceded by Zeus as the bittering hop. Torrified wheat and flaked barley and oats during the mash give this beer a smooth mouthfeel and haziness, not unlike a hot summer day in which this beer will be best enjoyed!

Fun Fact:

Free-divers were often forced to descend to depths of over 100 feet on a single breath in order to find enough oyster pearls, making the job extremely dangerous.

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.

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.
