VMOMG for Website.png
  • 6.5% ABV
  •  25 IBU

Vienna, Marzen, Oktoberfest are names given to the special beer brewed in Germany at the beginning or end of the brewing season. 

Oktoberfest used the best of the harvest while Marzen used the last of the stock before temperatures got too warm to brew.  
Regardless of which name this beer goes by, it should be of moderate strength and full of toasty, bready, malty character. Our grain bill consists of 50% German Pilsner Malt, 25% German Munich, and 25% German Vienna  with German Magnum and Hersbrucker hops. Most importantly, this one is fermented low and slow with a classic German lager yeast.  
Prost and OMG!

 


Alewitch Pumpkin Ale for Website.png
  • 8.24% ABV  
  • 14 IBU

As far back as history can tell us, women were the first brewers. “Ale wives” wore tall, pointed hats so they could stand out in the markets while selling their brew. They kept a cat around to shoo rodents away from their precious grain. They brewed in heavy cauldrons and used a broom to mark their “shop” and sweep up. As for pumpkin ales, well, they were born of necessity. When European settlers arrived on these shores, barley (the usual source of fermentable sugar in beer) was not available. To this end anything which contained those sugars became a candidate with which to make beer...including pumpkins. 
Our take on this reboot of an historic, American style is brewed with Farmer’s Daughters pumpkins, dried cinnamon bark, ginger root, cardamom, and a couple gallons of molasses. Warm spice and biscuit in the aroma follow through in the flavor of this potent, pumpkin colored beer. Spooky good stuff!


Compa New Mexican Lager.png
  • 6.1% ABV
  • 20 IBU

Friends, beer drinkers, New Mexicans, this beer is for you.
Brewed in the American style, this light lager was made with two row, malted barley, melanoidin malt, and flaked corn to emulate the big boys. We threw a few Willamette hops in there as well for balance.
Compa is simultaneously malty and easy drinking for those long hours spent wiling the day away on the porch, or boat, or anywhere else for that matter. So kick back, grab a burger, and enjoy.  

 


Smith Hopper for Website.png

Dr. Rudi Hops

  • 5.4% ABV
  • 30 IBU

The latest iteration of our Smith Hopper series showcases a variety from New Zealand called Dr Rudi. Bred for bittering, Dr. Rudi has got aroma in spades as well making it very well suited for use in a single hop beer. A clean bitterness gives way to piney, herbal, grassy tones with a hint of citrus in the way of orange zest. Two row and Munich malts make up the grain bill with some rolled oats thrown in for body. We fermented this Smith Hopper with our house German Ale strain for its clean character allowing for the aroma of the hops to dominate the profile. Dr Rudi is good for what ales ya. 


Cow Plow BROWN for Website.png

A Northern English Brown Ale

  • 4.7% ABV
  • 25 IBU

Locomotives in days of yore had to forge the way through the wild, western landscape without aid.  This meant plowing snow and in some cases bovine interference.  Cow Plow Brown Ale gives a nod to this history.  We patterned this beer after a Northern English or Nut Brown Ale so look for some nuttiness, a touch of chocolate, and a medium dry finish.  Cascade hops are added for balance and our house English Ale yeast strain provides a hint of fruitiness to round out what is a supremely sessionable pint. 


PlumBobGose for Website copy.png
  • 5% ABV
  • 5 IBU

Inspired by the dried & salted plum treat enjoyed in Mexico that originated in China, this gose gives a nod to the versions that are sometimes dusted with anise powder. We added just a bit of dried licorice root to the kettle to get a hint of that potent licorice flavor. Next? Copious amounts of plum puree, pink Himalayan salt, and our house Lactobacillus culture to yield a complex but balanced sweet, tart, and salty gose.
