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.

Butter Go Coco-nuts

PB Porter w/ Toasted Coconut

7.1%

ABV

68

IBU

Our Peanut Butter Porter with an extra dose of cocoa nibs plus toasted coconut gives this beer a chocolatey, toasty, sweetness. While each flavor can be enjoyed on its own, we love the way they come together in this well-balanced beer.

Fun Fact:

Coconuts can float for long distances across the ocean and then put down roots again when they wash ashore.

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.

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.

Manta Cyclone

Juicy IPA

5.6%

ABV

43

IBU

A juicy IPA using Mosaic, Amarillo, and Zeus hops. Aroma from the Mosaic and Amarillo hops will give off a dank scent. The Zeus hops add a bit of bitterness that balances out the juice character. Sometimes it's hazy, sometimes it's not, but it always tastes delicious!

Fun Fact:

In some parts of the world you can find manta rays cyclone feeding, where 50 or more mantas will create a chain and then spin into a vortex while feeding on plankton.

Mendota

Mango Kettle Sour

5.6%

ABV

6

IBU

The sister beer to Monona. Mango puree was added to the other half of the kettle sour to create a similar yet very different beer. The combo of the sweet fruit and sourness creates a beer that quenches your thirst but then keeps you coming back for more.

Fun Fact:

Lake Mendota is the northernmost and largest of the four lakes in Madison, Wisconsin. It is also the place where owners Christopher & Nicole got scuba certified.

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.

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.

Sharktoberfest

Märzen

5.8%

ABV

22

IBU

In celebration of the cooler weather coming our way, we released our first Marzen, Sharktoberfest! This amber-brown lager highlights the toasty and bready characters of Maris Otter and Munich grains and finishes crisp and clean. This beer is perfect for fall in Charleston because it is light enough to drink in the sun during the day and malty enough to drink around a campfire at night.

Fun Fact:

At the 100th anniversary of Oktoberfest in 1910, an estimated 120,000 liters of beer were consumed. 100 years later at the 200th anniversary in 2010, over 7 million liters of beer was consumed!

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.
