NOW POURING

MAINLINE

SAISON/6.8% ABV - Our flagship Saison Born from a series of test batches begun in Gordon Schuck’s backyard. 2012 Great American Beer Festival gold medal-winning Saison. Passion fruit, tangerine, lemon verbena, ginger and black pepper. Pairs well with high-fives. 

TROPIC KING/8.0% ABV - Originally designed to be a hoppier version of our flagship Saison, the accidental (but fortuitous) addition of two extra bags of Munich malt balanced the hop leaving us this very unique Imperial Saison. Notes of passion fruit, mango, peach, ginger and pepper. Pairs well with hula hooping. 

NELSON SAUVIN/7.6% ABV - Single hopped Saison with a unique New Zealand variety, Nelson Sauvin. White wine characteristics. Gooseberries, honeydew melon and a hint of spiciness. Pairs well with edible packing peanuts in hollandaise sauce.

RASPBERRY PROVINCIAL/4.2% ABV - Belgian-Style Sour Fruit Ale. We took a test batch of our sessionable sour summer ale, Provincial, and added a heavy dose of raspberries. Notes of lemon zest and tart raspberries. Pairs well with cloud watching. 

APRICOT PROVINCIAL/4.2% ABV - Provincial is our sessionable Belgian-style sour ale brewed utilizing a unique 24-hour warm souring technique using lactobacillus in the wort. We fermented with a Belgian wheat yeast strain famous for fruity flavors and a dry finish, making it the perfect complement to fruit. This delightfully tart fruit beer is refreshing, with a citrusy apricot aroma that transitions into a subtly sweet and tart finish. Notes of lemon zest and apricots. Pairs well with pretending to go to the gym.

 

SEASONAL/EXPERIMENTAL

PEAR SAISON/6.6% ABV - After six years as a company our flagship Saison is still brewmaster and co-owner Gordon’s favorite of our beers. We took this as a sign to experiment and see what else our Saison can accommodate. In this interpretation of our first medal winning beer you’ll find adjunct pear juice, contributing a dry sweetness that compliments our Saison's phenolic spice. Notes of passion fruit, a hint of spice, and fresh pears. Pairs well with a partridge.

MANGO KING/8.0% ABV - Since its first recipe defiant brew, our favorite happy accident Tropic King has become a staple to our beer portfolio. In this seasonal rendition we’ve added mango puree to enhance the juicy tropical fruit flavors from the Rakau hops.Notes of passion fruit, mango, pepper and ginger… and more mango. Pairs well with falling out of hammocks.

CHAKRA/7.1% ABV - This enlightening Belgian-style Pale Ale pushes its own style boundaries to evolve to it's truest self. The historic English Maris Otter malt grounds the beer while imparting a creamy, biscuity flavor. American Crystal hops enhance the herb and spice characters from the vital force of our house yeast while adding a harmonious woodsy, green aroma. This beer finds true fulfillment in your hands. Floral and fruit notes whit a woodsy, green characteristic, and a dash of herb and spice character. Pairs well with balance.

SOLENNA/6.3% ABV - Solenna pairs the fruitiness of a traditional Belgian yeast strain with the subtle spicy character of Brettanomyces and the floral notes of German hops. Notes of candy apple, cinnamon and fresh-cut grass give way to a dry finish and a firm lingering bitterness. Pairs well with longer nights.

BROTHER RUEBEN'S TRIPLE/8.8% ABV - Rueben himself contacted us about brewing a Triple, one of his favorite styles of beer, for Rueben's Burger Bistro in Boulder, CO. We loved the idea and happily agreed. Inspired by the traditional beers of Belgium, this beer is full of fruit esters and a dry finish. Notes of pineapple, bubblegum and citrus. Pairs well with burgers.

DECEIT/8.5% ABV - Inspired by Belgian Tripels and Golden ales, this Belgian-Style Golden Ale is deceptively palatable as the alcohol percentage is masked by complex characteristics introduced by our unique Belgian yeast strain. This Gold-Medal winning beer is full of pleasant fruit notes that carry the beer to a dry finish that will leave you begging for more. Notes of pineapple, pear, citrus and a slight spice. Pairs well with half-hearted apologies.

 

BOTTLE POURS

TEN/10% ABV - (Formerly known as Quad) Inspired by the Dark Strong beers of Belgium Malt-forward aromas with dark fruit notes, but a dry and balanced finish. Notes of toffee, chocolate, raisins and plums. Pairs poorly with scissors.

DRY HOPPED PROVINCIAL/4.2% ABV - What happens when you combine a sessionable sour beer with a healthy dose of fruit forward hops? Dry Hopped Provincial is a wonderfully delicious combination of the floral flavor and aroma of hoppy beers with the succulent tartness of a sour. Specifically selected hops to contribute to the musky tropical fruit characteristics, making it a perfect beer to enjoy on a hot summer day. Notes of citrus with floral aromas. Pairs well with summer romance.

 

BARREL-AGED

BLANC/7.5% ABV - In alliance with River North, friends and fellow lovers of Belgian yeast, we bring you two unique yet complimentary Saisons. Each of the beers blend both breweries' house saison yeast strains. The beers each take on their own complexion from there. Blanc is a traditional light Saison supplemented with chardonnay grapes and subsequently aged in Chardonnay barrels for over two months. Pairs well with burner phones.

DECEIT AGED IN RUM BARRELS/9.0% ABV - Our award winning Belgian-style golden ale, Deceit, was aged in oak rum barrels to produce this strong yet deceptively smooth brew. This beer pours a beautiful golden color with alluring aromas. Notes of pineapple and a hint of coconut with the complexity of spice and oak. Pairs well with an eyepatch and a peg leg.

 

CELLAR LIST

BARREL-AGED DECEIT 2015/9.0% ABV - Our award winning Belgian-style golden ale Deceit was aged in a variety of oak barrels for 18 months to 2 years to produce this strong yet deceptively smooth brew. Aromas of fresh apple and crisp white wine. Spicy notes compliment the complex characteristics pulled from the oak barrels. Pairs well with a well aged fruitcake you found from 2 holidays prior.
