9th Circle Hard Soda
Robust Brown Ale. Complex malt profile with caramel, toffee, and nut flavors and a rich chocolate overtone. This smooth, full-bodied porter is still highly sessionable and will make it difficult to have just one. Both Nitro and CO2 available.
Blood Red Rye
Traditional Irish Red. Light bodied with roasted and caramel notes. The addition of Rye Malt to the grain bill adds complexity and lends a spicy, herbaceous element. As if that wasn’t enough, we added dark organic maple syrup, which delivers woody/floral aromas and a dry finish.
As traditional a hefeweizen as you are likely to find outside of Bavaria. While this Hef might not be sanctified, we sure think it’s at least blessed. Unlike most American Hefs, this wheat beer strikes a balance between the banana and clove flavors, trading in-your face banana for a complex blend of flavors. Rich and bready but still delicate and drinkable, this beer will have you praying for it daily.
Traditional Kölsch-Style ale with a twist. Fermented cool and clean, lagered, and brewed with Mandarina Bavaria Hops. Crisp, light-bodied, easy-drinking with a citrus hop twist.
A white IPA, featuring pale wheat malt lending a rich body while still being highly drinkable. Dry hopped with loads of Centennial and Amarillo, then fermented on local Mirray Farms organic Apricots lending a strong apricot profile and a bright acidity.
A West-Coast IPA whose clean bitterness will have you rethinking the style if you’re not already a hop-head and loving it even more if you are. Illuminated uses Bravo, Calypso, and Azacca to bring light to darkness. Notes of grapefruit and citrus blend with melon and berries.
American Noble Pilsner
Our special 2019 Oktoberfest release.
We called this a Viking Saison because we imagined what a modern, hip Viking would call this beer; however, this ale is brewed in the ancient Norwegian Farmhouse tradition. We barrel-fermented this ale in Halter Ranch Winery white wine barrels with ingredients a Viking would have used: wheat, oats, and barley as well as a heaping dose of local sage honey. But the lynchpin of this beer was the Norwegian Kveik yeast, harvested in Stranda, Norway. We did an entirely uncontrolled fermentation in our warehouse to allow this yeast to fully express itself. This is a small-batch brew, so quantities are limited.
Tasting Notes: rich, smooth mouthfeel; dry, mead-like body, champagne-like carbonation; flavors of honey, spice, grain, and stonefruit.
