Bella's Helles

Munich Helles

5.5%

ABV

17

IBU

Our first lager on draft! A crisp, smooth, lager with a malt-forward profile from the pilsner malt. We let it lager for 6 weeks in the fermenters before putting it on draft. This inviting, refreshing beer is perfect for a hot, Charleston summer day and is named after our late husky, Bella.

Fun Fact:

Lager yeast is known as a 'bottom-fermentation' yeast and enjoys fermenting at lower temperatures for longer periods of time than an ale yeast.

Blackberry's Blockade

Blackberry & Pomegranate Kettle Sour

5.0%

ABV

6

IBU

A fruitful kettle sour with blackberry and pomegranate. The combination of tart fruit, sweet lactose, and sour lactobacillus brevis makes a well-balanced beer for sour lovers and non-sour lovers alike.

Fun Fact:

In May 1718 Blackbeard the pirate blockaded the port of Charles Towne (aka Charleston) in South Carolina. Over the course of 5-6 days they stopped and ransacked 9 vessels and kept passengers on one ship hostage in exchange for medical supplies.

Dog Days of Sommers

Pale Ale

5.2%

ABV

33

IBU

The new and improved 'Pelican Plunge'. A very similar recipe with Cascade and Centennial hops but we dialed back the Crystal malt to subdue the sweetness and create a more balanced pale ale.

Fun Fact:

The dog days of summer commonly refers to the hottest, most uncomfortable part of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

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.

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.

Lion's Mane

Oat Cream IPA

6.3%

ABV

37

IBU

This silky and smooth IPA will make you come back for more with each sip. We used Amarillo for bittering but it's well balanced with Cashmere and Idaho Gem hops (two of our current favorites!). The soft mouth feel comes from the malted oats and the creaminess is the result of lactose (milk sugar) added during the boil.

Fun Fact:

The lion's mane jellyfish is one of the largest known species of jellyfish. The largest recorded specimen was measured by Alexander Agassiz off the coast of Massachusetts in 1865 and had a bell with a diameter of 210 centimeters (7 feet) and tentacles around 36.6 m (120 ft) long.

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.

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.

Rhincodon

Kveik Barelywine

9.7%

ABV

88

IBU

Named after the whale shark, the largest living fish, this is our biggest beer yet! We maxed out our mashtun to brew this barleywine with 735 lbs of grain. What makes this beer even more unique is our use of the Norwegian Kveik yeast to give it tropical fruity notes. This beer tastes great now but will taste even better if you pick up a bottle and let it age for up to two years.

Fun Fact:

Whale shark mouths can contain over 300 rows of tiny teeth and 20 filter pads which it uses to filter feed. Unlike many other sharks, whale sharks' mouths are located at the front of the head rather than on the underside of the head.

Sheep for a Wheat

Belgian Wheat

5.1%

ABV

15

IBU

The Belgian yeast used for this beer is intense. That's why we love it. We balance out the flavors brought on with the yeast with some coriander seed and orange peel for a well-balanced Belgian Wheat Ale.

Fun Fact:

Even though this beer style originated from Belgian, Settlers of Catan really originated from Germany.

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.
