This Prism utilizes the same simple grist and classic Belgian yeast strain, and is dry-hopped with German-grown Mandarina Bavaria and Spalt. This beer reminds us of peeling an orange by the pool in July, black pepper Wheathins, humid bike rides to the Botanical Gardens, and taking a shower after mowing the grass. 5.5% Available in cans and on draft.

Lake Russ is a collab we cooked up with some old buds Shared. We decided to use the same malt bill, ours a touch smaller than theirs, and we thoroughly dry hopped with equal parts Mosaic and Idaho 7. This IPA reminds us of dank orange juice, getting your credit card compromised at the diner, and trips to the cage. 6.5%
Giant Steps is a study on the blending and harmony of wine barrel-aged beers. Based around two French Oak Red Wine Puncheons, this series will be an ever-revolving door of styles and flavor components. Stay Rooted, but never stagnant.
Giant Steps Blend 2 is a 50/50 blend of 2 distinct threads. Half puncheon fermented mixed culture saison with Grapefruit zest and juice, and half barrel fermented clean saison aged on 2nd use Raspberries and Blackberries. Blended together and let age to preferred dryness, and package conditioned with a house blend of Brettanomyces.
Hurry On Daylight is the next in our series of “hazy lite” IPAs. Brewed with a sturdy malt bill, we let these dry out a touch more and then dry-hop with different hop combinations. Hurry on Daylight features handfuls of Cascade, Amarillo and Crystal. This beer reminds us of hazy drives thru Rocky Mountain National Park, orange-limeade, homegrown cantaloupe, and listening to Hiss Golden Messenger while driving East.
Apparent Destination is the fourth beer we’ve made for the yearly Honey Summit put on by the National Honey Board. This year, we made a saison brewed with rice, Missouri unmalted red wheat, four year old whole cone Cascade, Missouri wildflower honey, black peppercorn and plums. Fermented on more plums, we then lagered this Saison for 6 weeks before racking half into second use Smooth Ambler barrels and kegging the rest. Layers of stone fruit, bubblegum, black pepper and honey all day.
Grab your fanny packs and cargo shorts and dive head first into this crushable, hoppy Summer ale. Simple grist, clean yeast, and a dry finish will make you want to load up the station wagon and throw the map out the window.
