Estate Hopped India Pale Lager – Tropical | Melon | Lager
Introducing the first release of our yearly Estate Hopped beers. 2015 was the first official harvest for us and this year’s crop included Cascade, Chinook, & Amalia. Right off the bines (yes, bines with a b) these hops were juicy and full of aroma. It was important that we crafted a beer that would showcase all of the hop goodness without a malty background getting in the way. What better way than with a Lager! This IPL has an amazing tropical nose, melon on the palate, and because it’s a Lager is incredibly drinkable. We couldn’t be more pleased with this beer. We only had enough hops for a single turn, so we’re limited to draft and select accounts. Get it before it’s gone!
ABV 6.2% | IBU: 35 | F.G. 1.009 ~ Taproom, Select Draft Accounts

Good Medicine Session IPA – Lime Zest | Casaba Melon | Lychee
Brewed entirely with hops from the Southern Hemisphere, this Session IPA is flat out delicious. The simple malt bill and clean finish allow the Southern Cross and Nelson Sauvin hops to truly shine. The unique fruit flavors created by the marriage of these hops leaves you craving this beer at the most peculiar times. Bring your growler with you, you can thank us later!

Riesling Blonde Sour | Batch No. 1403 [SOUR]
This fruit forward blonde sour is a blend of both white wine barrel and foeder fermented beers. We fruited this golden beer with late harvest riesling skins and juice early in fermentation to allow the tropical characteristics of the grape to evolve and mature during the long Brettanomyces fermentation. The resulting aromas are both tropical and stone fruit driven with lemony bright acidity as the perfect balance.
ABV 7.1% ~ Taproom, Select Draft Accounts, & 500ML Bottles Only

Apricot Blonde Sour | Batch No. 1402 [SOUR]
This is the second vintage of our apricot blonde sour, 100% fermented in wine barrels. The apricots were added directly to the barrels early in fermentation and allowed to release all their aromatic potential during the long Brettanomyces fermentation. The resulting aromas are funky and fruity in the best way. The classic brett earthy funk gives way to layers of ripe apricot and white chocolate oak character.
ABV 6.7% ~ Taproom, Select Draft Accounts, & 500ML Bottles Only

Barrel Select Riesling Blonde Sour | Batch No. 1401 [SOUR]
This Blonde Sour, fruited with late harvest Riesling, is our first Barrel Select release. A number of barrels were hand-selected for their complexity and uniqueness. The white wine oak barrels were topped off with rich riesling must and juice early in fermentation. This technique adds structure and body with soft tannin backing up ripe fruits. Expect huge pineapple from the brettanomyces and mild vanilla and butterscotch from the oak with a balanced tart funkiness.
ABV 7.9% ~ 500ML Bottles Only

Sweet Flanders Red | Batch No. 1303 [SOUR]
This Imperial Sweet Flanders Red was aged in once filled Napa Valley french oak Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. We added late harvest Zinfendel Berries and fermented with lacto and brett to lend a distinct tartness to the rich, deep red, malty body. There are notes of vanilla, toasted oak, ripe plumb, and port wine. Enjoy this sour near room temperature in fluted glassware.
ABV 10.4% ~ 500ML Bottles Only
