Beers on tap
SHELLY BEACH - KICKED
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.
CASCADE PALE ALE
You'll chase after this beer with the same intensity a pelican will plunge into the water to get its next meal. Our Pelican Plunge Pale Ale was brewed with Cascade, Zeus, and Centennial hops and then dry hopped with more Cascade.
Fun Fact: The brown pelican will plunge-dive head-first into the water for its prey, from a height as great as 10–20 m (33–66 ft).
SHEEP FOR A WHEAT
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.
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.
NEW ENGLAND IPA
Our Mola Mola (aka Sunfish) is a juicy, 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 NEIPAs, 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.
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.
VOSS KVEIK SAISON
A dry saison brewed with Voss Kveik, a special Norwegian yeast that ferments at much higher temperatures (70-100 degrees) than other yeast. We let this free rise to 86 degrees during fermentation to bring out the orange and citrus flavors you taste - that’s all from the yeast!
Fun Fact: This beer is named after the yeast sample’s owner from which it originated, Sigmund Gjernes
HONEY CREAM ALE
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.
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
WAKE UP CALL
COFFEE BLONDE ALE
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.
GOLDEN STRONG ALE
Watch out! The charming devil will get you. This Golden Strong Ale doesn't drink like a 9% but as a dry, smooth, golden ale. We added 75 lb sugar during the boil and let it ferment for a month to until it got to exactly where we wanted it.
Fun Fact: Devil in Dutch is "Duval". Many breweries will incorporate 'devil' into the name of their Golden Strong Ales as a nod to Moortgat Brewery's Duval beer. Duval is considered by many as the definitive version of the Belgian Strong Pale Ale style.
BUTTER GO NUTS
PEANUT BUTTER PORTER
Available on Nitro
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.
DRY IRISH STOUT
Available on Nitro
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.
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.
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.
