We’re excited to announce a collaboration with our friends at Grace Meat + Three. Grace Hominy Lager is a Mexican-style lager brewed with hominy sourced and cooked by the crew at Grace. Clocking in at 4.8% ABV, it’s refreshing and a perfect companion for southern cuisine, especially fried chicken.
Funky Wit Apricot begins its life as a traditional Belgian-style Witbier, with whirlpool additions of sweet orange peel, coriander, and black pepper, and a primary fermentation in stainless steel with a classic yeast strain. It's then inoculated with a house blend of Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus, and left to age in our oak foeders for one year. We then rack the beer to stainless on top of an ample portion of puréed apricots and allow it to referment to dryness before bottle conditioning.
We brewed this massive imperial stout to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our good friends at Churchkey. Brewed with peanut flour and salt, fermented on chocolate sauce, and steeped on whole roasted peanuts, this high gravity beverage reminds us of eating too many Reese’s Eggs and crushing donuts hungover on a Monday morning with Tim Liu.
Unicorn Tears is our imperial stout base aged for 18 months in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels and then steeped on Balaton Tart Cherries from Michigan for 4 months. Brewed in collaboration with our friends at Fremont Brewing Company. 13% ABV
Honeydewdz is a DDH DIPA we brewed in collaboration with Resident Culture Brewing Company with honey supplied by the National Honey Board! Built around a sturdy malt bill of Golden Promise and Malted Oats, we threw some delicious MO Wildflower honey and NC Sourwood honey into the whirlpool with a heavy hand of Simcoe and finally dry-hopped twice with Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe Cryo. This beer reminds us of missing white water rafting excursions in North Carolina, flower encrusted mangoes, and dank oranges slices at halftime of your 3rd grade soccer match. #methodéhaze.
Using a simple grist and a favorite Belgian yeast strain, Prism is an ongoing series showcasing different hop varietals. This latest iteration of Prism featuring Huell Melon & Centennial hops. Grapefruit pith, Cantaloupe and a noble hop finish, meld with a crisp malt bill, supported by a touch of Flaked Wheat, and finishes with balanced Belgian yeast esters.
7.5% DDH Double IPA brewed with gobs of flaked oats and touch of Vienna Malt. Hopped early in fermentation with Simcoe Cryo, and then crushed with more Simcoe, Centennial and Amarillo at the tail end of fermentation. Drinking this beer reminds us of eating brûléed grapefruits during the first snowfall, Simcoe encrusted orange slices after a morning of powder skiing, and riding on the back of firetrucks with Paul Simon playing.
This year’s Anniversary Blend combines three distinct threads, bringing forward a complex blend of barrel-aged strong ales. It is comprised of 45% Blue Ridge aged 12 months in second-use Maman barrels, 33% Maman aged 20 months in Rittenhouse Rye barrels, and 22% Wheat Wine aged 28 months in Rittenhouse Rye barrels. To continue on with this yearly blend, we’ve decided to leave this without adjuncts to let the beer speak for itself. Layers of chewy oak, chocolate covered raisins, finish with a rich body. Complex, yet surprisingly drinkable at 14.5%. Cheers to another year around the sun.
An Imperial Stout brewed with ancho chili peppers, cacao nibs, vanilla beans, and cinnamon sticks. Pouring deep brown with a thick head, this beer has a complex body with a delicious lingering roastiness. Abraxas is brewed with unique ingredients intended to challenge and excite the palate. It may be enjoyed right away or allowed to age in the bottle. Vertical tastings are encouraged.
Polite Nodding is our next “Hazy Lite” rolling out of the brewery. Each version displays a sturdy malt bill with rotating hop selections. This version is hopped with Ekuanot Cryo and Citra. Notes of citrus, honeydew, fresh cut grass, and the dankness, with a cereal finish to balance. Reminds us of hot-boxing your car in the college parking lot right after breakfast.
