KICKED KEGS

Stay tuned for when these will come back on tap

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.

Barrel-Aged Tropical Storm

Tropical Storm

7.0%

ABV

45

IBU

Tropical Storm, our Tropical Stout, aged in bourbon barrels for 6 months. The perfect combination of tropical, chocolate, and roasted flavors in a single glass. We used Warrior hops for bittering but the Midnight wheat balances it out nicely. The Citra and Amarillo hops used during the whirlpool combined with Voss Kveik yeast gives this beer a little touch of tropical paradise in a stout form.

Fun Fact:

According to the National Weather Service, a tropical storm is a tropical cyclone that has maximum sustained surface winds ranging from 39-73 mph (34 to 63 knots). The cyclone doesn't reach hurricane status until winds reach 74 mph/64 knots or greater.

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.

Berried at Sea

Raspberry Kettle Sour

5.0%

ABV

6

IBU

We split our first kettle sour and added raspberry puree to this half to create a sweet and sour, well balanced beer. At just 5% ABV, you'll find this beer quite refreshing on a hot summer day.

Fun Fact:

A raspberry is made up of many tiny bead-like fruits called “drupelets” clustered around a center core.

Boone Hall Berry Bomb

Strawberry Kettle Sour

5.0%

ABV

6

IBU

Our first kettle sour, soured with lactobacillus. We partnered with Boone Hall Farms in Mount Pleasant and added 180lb of fresh strawberries. At just 5% ABV and with the right balance of sour and strawberries, you'll find this beer quite refreshing on a hot summer day.

Fun Fact:

Boone Hall Farm dedicates ~13 acres each spring for their 150,000 strawberry plants to produce over 260,000 lb of strawberries. Every strawberry on the farm is picked by hand.

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.

Charming Devil

Golden Strong Ale

9.0%

ABV

30

IBU

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.

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.

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.

Night Dive

Milk Stout

6.7%

ABV

29

IBU

Silky-smooth, calming and refreshing with light roasty notes. We love the outcome of the 5+ hour boil, light carbonation, and lactose, which gives the beer a cream flavor and mouth feel, combination. It's so creamy and smooth you may even mistake this beer for a nitro!

Fun Fact:

Night diving is underwater diving done during the hours of darkness. The underwater environment is much different at night because many marine animals are nocturnal.

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.

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.

Pelican Plunge

Cascade Pale Ale

5.6%

ABV

36

IBU

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).

Penny for the Ferryman

Belgian Dark Strong

8.0%

ABV

28

IBU

A wintery version of our Charming Devil. This lightly bittered beer will warm your heart with its caramel, raisin, and fruity aroma and flavor. You may be wondering where the beautiful color of the beer comes from. We like to credit the dark candied syrup incorporated into the boil. It's not too sweet though! The Belgian Strong Ale yeast finishes it drier than you might expect. Like the Charming Devil, this one is more dangerous than it tastes.

Fun Fact:

According to Greek and Roman literary sources, a low-denomination coin would be placed in or on the deceased's mouth at burial as a toll to the ferryman who transported souls across the river that divided the world of the living from the world of the dead.

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.

Sigmund's Serenity

Voss Kveik Saison

5.8%

ABV

22

IBU

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

Surface Interval

Czech Pilsner

6.6%

ABV

34

IBU

Surface Interval is a Czech Pilsner that uses Southern German Lager yeast and 100% Czech Saaz hops. The hops will give the beer a slight spicy character, which is a nice complement to the clean finishing yeast. Just like a diver's surface interval between dives, this beer is relaxing, chill, and rejuvenating.

Fun Fact:

A surface interval is the time a diver spends at the surface in between dives. The time allows nitrogen accumulated during the dive to be released from the body and will reduce the risk of decompression sickness, or "the bends".

Tropical Storm

Tropical Stout

6.5%

ABV

45

IBU

The perfect combination of tropical, chocolate, and roasted flavors in a single glass. We used Warrior hops for bittering but the Midnight wheat balances it out nicely. The Citra and Amarillo hops used during the whirlpool combined with Voss Kveik yeast gives this beer a little touch of tropical paradise in a stout form.

Fun Fact:

According to the National Weather Service, a tropical storm is a tropical cyclone that has maximum sustained surface winds ranging from 39-73 mph (34 to 63 knots). The cyclone doesn't reach hurricane status until winds reach 74 mph/64 knots or greater.

Uncle Ducky's Revenge

Belgian IPA

7.9%

ABV

56

IBU

Fermented with a Belgian Strong Ale yeast, this Belgian IPA doesn't taste as strong as it is. The deliciousness of Zeus, Cascade, and Mosaic hops balance out the powerful flavors of the yeast.

Fun Fact:

Belgian IPAs originated as American and Double IPAs were taking off in Belgium. Brewers in Belgium decided they wanted to put their own spin on the IPA. Thus, the Belgian IPA was born.

Wooden Walkway

Belgian Saison

5.9%

ABV

24

IBU

Wooden Walkway will take your taste buds on a journey while you enjoy this Belgian Saison. You'll start with warm, biscutty flavors from the Vienna malt. Next, the Belgian yeast will throw in some cracked pepper to spice things up but will be balanced by citrus and tropical fruit from the Cashmere hops used during dry hopping. The journey will end with a dry finish. Enjoy!

Fun Fact:

Saison is French for "season". The style originated as a pale ale brewed during the cooler months and stored for drinking in the summer months when the seasonal workers ("saisonniers") returned.
