A perfect game-day craft beer can’t be dumbed down in taste or ingredients, but it shouldn’t be so over the top you need to switch to something lighter after only one. So we brewed it with Cascade Hops (C Hops!) along with Maris Otter and Crystal Malts to produce a beer unmistakably NW in flavor and super drinkable from beginning to end. Also, since you need to have enough to share, we’ve released them as a 12-Pack of tallboys.
The perfect balance of bitter and aromatic. It’s our NW take on an Amber Ale: A bit cloudy with a big, bright hop presence that even IPA drinkers can get behind.
No cork or wire cage here. We’re getting back to the spirit of a Saison as a beer you can drink every day, not just special occasions. A refreshing and complex beer, ours is brewed without the addition of any spices, however the Belgian yeast adds notes of citrus, peppercorn, and corriander.
In this hop-heavy town, it surprised us how our least hopular beer became the most popular one in our taproom. Malty and rich in flavor with a dry bite, this is a truly (ob)sessionable ale. Single malt and single hop so what’s the BFD? Excatly that; it’s a beer for drinking.
Sure, it takes us way too long to make this beer, but we’d rather err on the side of awesome. Made with Saaz hops and Pilsner malt, we lager each batch for eight weeks to do this classic, Czech-style Pils right. Limited availability.
The name originates from an anagram, not a pentagram, but the key element of this pre-prohibition style beer is the process of fermenting it with a lager yeast at an ale-like higher temperature. Light copper in color from the Crystal Specialty malt, it’s complemented by Golding hops and Czech Pilsner yeast.
Like a black car with matching rims and tinted windows, this Irish Dry Stout is as dark as it gets. Dehusked, roasted malt gives it the sinister color as well as a smooth flavor with hints of chocolate and coffee. True to style, the malt is balanced by a hoppy, dry-roasted bitterness making it perfectly appropriate whatever the weather.
Beechwood smoked malt makes for a light campfire finish.
Oak chardonnay barrel aged (10 months) version of our ever popular Saison.
In collaboration with Red Hook, Joint Effort is a session ale brewed with hemp seeds. Dry-hopped with Zeus, Cascade, and Summit Hops, Joint Effort has a dank, resinous hop aroma balance by nutty earthiness from hemp seeds. It’s the perfect brew for sitting around with your bud, grabbing some munchies and enjoying a beer.
It’s the NW so we need some sort of nautical reference for at least one of our beers, right? We figure this’ll cover them all. Maris Otter base with a touch of Chocolate malt for color and complexity, Summit and Cascade hops from Yakima for aroma and restrained bitterness.
Originally brewed as a one-off batch, we soon realized we’d have to make more and it’s become a year-round draft beer for us. We start it as a typical Extra Special Bitter (ESB), but ferment it with our Saison yeast. From the nose, you’d expect it to finish up sweet like many dark Belgian beers, but instead it stays dry and bitter.
