Latest Beer Releases:
5.0 ABV 42 IBU
Boss Pils is a clear golden Bohemian Pilsner-style lager with a rich but smooth and bready malt character. Your first sip yields to a long finish with a prominent spicy hop backbone, the result of American Saaz hops in the boil and steep stages of brewing. Our take combines the classic European style with New World boldness!
Javine - Baltic Porter
9.4% ABV 43 IBU
Javine is the mythical household god in Lithuania that protects grain in barns. Our Javine Baltic Porter is a strong, dark lager with deep ruby hues and a rich malty finish. An array of roasted, crystal, Vienna and Munich malts meld with traditional German hops in this classic style. Javine is our anniversary beer for 2019, so come celebrate our birthday with a nod to the protector of grain! Javine won a gold medal at the 2019 World Expo of Beer.
Lallybroch - Scottish Wee Heavy
9.0% ABV 16 IBU
Lallybroch brings you the warmth and strength of a Scottish castle fireside with its a deep copper hue and ruby highlights. The first sip, malty and full-bodied, yields to hints of oak and caramel and dates. Brewed, of course, with traditional Golden Promise malted barley! Lallybroch is the fictional ancestral home of James Fraser in the Outlander series and it translates to "Lazy Tower".
Badger in the Barley - Strong Bitter (ESB)
6.2% ABV 39 IBU
Badger in the Barley is fermented from 100% traditional English malts, hops and yeast to create a delicious biscuit flavor with a hint of marmalade, which yields to a delicate bitterness and grassy, peppery notes. Ted has been perfecting his ESB (Extra Special Bitter) since visiting London many years ago. Badger in the Barley is reminiscent of classic English pub names such as the Drunken Duck and Jolly Taxpayer.
