Our house IPA got a lil touch of the east coast. Brewed to the style of New England hazy IPAs this juicier, less bitter version boasts a bouquet of tropical fruit and grapefruit zest notes. Who knows what a Foreigner would think of this delicious IPA… I’m assuming they would love it. Cheers!
ABV:4.7% IBU: 8
This description could pretty easily read “Nice and slightly tart.” But, let me elaborate. As American Wheats go this one expresses just the slightest note of crackers on the front, but otherwise glides seamlessly into crisp and refreshing. The nose carries just a hint of the lemon zest that we added at the end of the boil. No perceptible hop character comes through. The tartness from the zest is subtle; arguably you’d only notice it through the power of suggestion. Yeast contributions of a slightly fruit forward nature finish to make this ale a patio and summer friendly smash hit.
Water Break Pale Lager
ABV: 4.3% IBU: 11
A crisp spring and summer sipper that boasts what we like to call “Crushability.” Fermented cold on a German lager strain, and dashed with the most modest amounts of Mosaic hops to deliver a touch of tropical fruit on the finish. Easy drinkin’ and terrific flavor. On tap now!
Memberberries Pale was added to our Tap Lineup this past Thursday and it's a hit!
Blueberry Pale Ale ABV: 5.4% IBU: 43
A fine ale inoculated with the juice of berries that induce a euphoric state of nostalgia. Remember Pale Ales? This classic brew is finely bittered and finished with Simcoe and Topaz hops to deliver a decidedly dank aroma. Fermented with an American yeast strain for a flavor so clean that if you close your eyes and drink you’ll slip away to a time years ago when simply clean, hoppy beers were all the rage. Easy drinking and good times. Cheers.
The Folks at Portland Today got to try the Memberberries and loved it!
