Our patented Firestone Union uniquely incorporates 60-gallon American oak barrels into the fermentation process that yields beers of extraordinary character and complexity. This system improves the fullness of the palate, balances hop character and lends a clean briskness to the finish. The influence of the toasted oak also imparts unique hints of smokiness and vanilla, as well as a subtle fruitiness to the flavor profile.
Red ale brewed for the holiday season with specialty malts to achieve a beautiful deep red hue and the aromas of fresh baked bread, caramel, and stone fruits. Steeped with ginger root and orange peel.
A well-balanced, medium to full-bodied beer, red in color and very flavorful.
How Come you Taste So Good?? Boatloads of Pure Brown Sugar in Each Batch, That's How! The Rich, Roasty and Mysteriously Drinkable Ale might best be described as... Irresponsible. It Leaves a Lot of Stories in it's Wake.
The Boffo Brown ale is a beer that we brewed years ago and then put it in semi retirement for a couple years while we focused on other brands at the brewery. We have recently put it back onto active duty and are brewing it all year. The beer itself is delicious and is a favorite to many of us here at the brewery. Just as most of our beers it's on the "full body" scale pushing the envelope of what an American Brown Ale is to most people. The beer is a very deep/dark color of brown with a nice creamy tan head. The mouthfeel of the beer is very soft and is very drinkable. Flavors of malt, caramel, toffee, and a mild earthy nutty finish allow this beer to be paired with hearty food and sips of bourbon.
Coffee Bender refreshes like an iced-coffee, is aromatic as a bag of whole beans as satisfies like your favorite beer. The Surly brew team has developed a cold extraction process that results in intense coffee aromatics and flavor bringing together two of our favorite beverages. Your only dilemma will be whether to finish your day or start it with a Coffee Bender.
Forget about the car companies, this is the original hybrid, a cross between a Scotch Ale, an India Pale Ale, and an American Brown. Our Indian Brown Ale is well-hopped and malty at the same time (magical). The beer has characteristics of each style that inspired it; the color of an American Brown, the caramel notes of a Scotch Ale, and the hopping regiment of an India Pale Ale. We dry-hop the Indian Brown Ale in a similar fashion as our 60 Minute IPA and 90 Minute IPAs. This beer is brewed with Aromatic barley and organic brown sugar.
This is the namesake for one of our brewer's favorite shop dogs. 'Ol Bender is a hound that is relaxed and calm in nature but can also pack a powerful wallop if your not careful. This beer has a biscuity nose...but that makes sense, as 'Ol Bender loves dog biscuits as a treat too. Hoist one for the hound!
Slightly bitter and less malty than the traditional German counterpart. The nose is rich with strong citrus and floral notes. Distinct hop aroma leaves for a nice punch for a summer quencher.
Barrel-aged imperial hazelnut stout
Sea Monster Imperial Stout is a new version of an old favorite. This hearty stout is black as the abyss and clocks in at a whopping 10% ABV, a real monster. The flavors of roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate are complamented by a velvety smoothness from the addition of un-malted barley and oats. Colombus and Amarillo hops help to balance out the huge malt character of this flavor bomb. Be careful the alcohol is well hidden and will sneak up on you if you don't watch out. Like most scary monsters, it can be a little intimidating, but have no fear.
A hopped up IPA that always maintains the same consistent grain bill. However, we craft our IPA with a new twist each time it is expertly brewed!
As we know, hop varietals are growing rapidly and we are always attempting to take advantage of them. Our "Craft'd" IPA will always change based on which hops we want to use at the time. Brewer David loves the opportunity to experiment with the various versions! This current batch is Cascade hopped and Chinook dry hopped
Whenever Craft'd is on, make sure you give it a try!
Big, juicy citrus complexity. The rich golden hue is clear as the sky. Typical hop punch but without the long lingering sting. Slight grassy notes but a wonderfully balanced brew.
Bold hopped nose. Straw color. Medium body.
Named after Coronado Island, our original India Pale Ale is a liquid expression of hometown pride. Centennial, Chinook and Columbus hops combine to provide an explosive burst of piney bitterness and luscious notes of apricot, grapefruit and mango that are sure to evoke imagery of swaying palms and sun-kissed shores.
This morning we get to see some new packaging and beer coming from Coronado Brewing. Up first is the new Seasonal Selection North Island IPA and it is a New England-style IPA that is brewed with Columbus, Centennial, Citra and Mosaic hops as well as British ale yeast. This beer hits 7.5%-AbV
How do you cram as much hop & malt flavor and aroma as possible into a beer but make it crushable too? Thatâ€™s the challenge we answered with PINNER Throwback IPA. At 4.9% ABV and 35 IBUs, this drinkable IPA uses several varieties of hops to target the ever-evolving flavor. With tropical fruits, citrus juices, pineapple and spice berry up front in the aroma and flavor, the biscuit & toasted bread at the back balance out all the hops and make a great finish to go on to your next can of PINNER. Itâ€™s the perfect beer for a little sip, sip, give.
Sticky Icky Icky is a radiantly clear, copper-colored American India Pale Ale. It is loaded with citrusy hop aromas of oranges, nectarines, and apricots. This light, yet full bodied ale is perfectly balanced by equal parts sweet malt and juicy hops. A medium bitterness along with a subtle earthiness lingers in the finish. This new American India Pale Ale is what Ryan Hale, the head brewer at the Bellaire pub, referred to as his quintessential IPA. Ryan combined all of his favorite hops resulting in what he described as â€œpure juicy goodnessâ€. This beer is loaded with all of the big citrus and fruity flavors American hops can offer.
Enoy a SoCal summer year round with Tangerine Soul Style IPA. This delectable brew is a one-way ticket to taste bud paradise. Relax and take in the brilliant golden orange color and fresh aroma of effervescent tangerine and orange. Tangerine zest carries throughout, accented by bright, flowery tropical flavors and a sweet finish. Brewed with American caramel malts and a blend of Simcoe, Citra and Cascade hops, this is a beautiful brew to behold.
This is a one-off keg of the Amager/Surly Todd - The Axe Man, brewed at the Surly brewery in Brooklyn Center, MN. A Surlyfest 2014 exclusive.
Session IPA brewed with lactose
Think Moscow Mule in the form of beer. This is an easy drinking lager with lime puree and candied ginger added. This will soon become a summertime quencher.
This beer is characterized by a malty and even bready aroma. Offers a bit of sweetness to a traditional American lager. This will drink more in the fashion of a traditional Marzen or Oktoberfest. The malty aroma and flavor have a notable degree of toastiness. Hop bitterness is quite insignificant.
Localâ€™s Light is a light, yet very tasty lager. The light pilsen malt creates a soft and subtle flavor profile that finishes crisp and clean on your palate.
Localâ€™s Light is a perfect beer for the seasoned craft brew enthusiast and someone new to microbrews. When Shortâ€™s first opened, there was not a great deal of craft beer available in the area. Joe Short wanted to create a beer that would appeal to new craft beer drinkers who lived in Michigan, and introduce them to the complex flavors of other beer styles.
This delightful malt liquor was brewed to celebrate the equally delightful "Region" that we brew in. Brewed with a portion of Indiana corn, this is what a malt liquor should be.
3 Floyd's flagship beer, Alpha King is a big American pale ale that pours a deep amber with a creamy head. This ale is brewed with Centennial, Cascade, and Warrior hops giving it an intense citrus aroma and a crisp hoppy finish.
Double Daisy Cutter is a monster version of the original Daisy Cutter Pale Ale. A heftier grain bill amps up the weight and double dry hopping insures there's enough hops to recede your gums.
Single hopped with Mandarina Bavaria. Super light in both color and body. The hop profile gives it a nice little bite. Tends to drink very easily. Similar in taste and aroma to a hopped up pilsner or IPL. Taste the last bit of summer right now!
This Fresh Hop Pale Ale is all about celebrating the hop harvest in the fall. Fresh picked hops have to be added to the brew immediately and in abundance. Roughly 680 pounds of Crystal hops from Doug Weathers' farm outside Salem, Oregon will be added to each 120 barrel batch in addition to some dry kilned whole flower hops. That adds up to approximately 5.7 pounds of hops per barrel brewed. Another deliciously interesting beer in our Bond Street Series.
In 2006 we thought it would be fun to document the trip so Tim Cash from FARfromEARTH films hopped on board with his camera in hand
Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.
Pale ale syle brewed with locally grown hops from the Shedd Aquarium gardens. Light in both color and aroma, this beer is easily approachable and a real drinker! $1 from the purchase of each beer will be donated to the Shedd Aquarium.
Made with 100% Vienna malt as the base and some light caramel malts for color. Hopped and dry hopped with Hull Melon. Strawberry and green melon aromas with a malty and slightly sweet mouthfeel and clean finish.
Combining CCBâ€™s expertise with tropical fruit flavors and Boulevardâ€™s love of pale ales, Collaboration No. 5 â€“ Tropical Pale Ale begins with a base of soft pilsner malt layered with Maris Otter, Munich and caramel malts. Huge late hopping with a blend of Mosaic, Citra, Lemondrop and Azacca lends bright flavors of mango, pear, blueberry and citrus to a pale ale featuring slightly toasted biscuit and caramel/toffee notes. Infused with freshly sliced grapefruit at the conclusion of the boil, our tropical pale ale is briefly aged on passion fruit and grapefruit at the end of fermentation resulting in a refreshing acidity and tropical fruit flavor and aroma. At 7.3 ABV and 55 IBUs, Collaboration No. 5 â€“ Tropical Pale Ale finishes slightly tart with bright citrus character from dry-hopping with Lemondrop, Azacca and Pacific Jade hops.
A medium bodied single hop pale ale showcasing Citra hop from the Yakima Valley, U.S.A
Citrus and beer have made a great pair ever since the first lemon wedge was added to a frosty wheat beer. Here we expand on that tradition, melding a sour blond ale with the intensely aromatic zest of Buddhaâ€™s Hand citrons and the bracing tartness of Yuzu and Blood Oranges from Hamada Farms. Pair harmoniously with sushi or flakey white fish or contrast with earthy roasted root vegetables.
Traditional German style unfiltered, wheat sour with coriander and sea salt. Providing a refreshing zip and tang. Somewhat dry with very little hop bitterness. Originally from Leipzig region.
Black Sun has a nose of coffee, roasted malts and piney hops. This medium bodied stout has a broad depth of maltiness and a clean dry finish. December release.
Pasteurised. Usually called Draught; sometimes called Cold or Extra Cold - same beer, but served colder.
Launched in 1961.
Ingredients: Pale ale malt, about 25 to 30% flaked barley, and about 10% roasted barley, with no other grains or sugars; several hop varieties, mainly Goldings (pellets and isomerized extract); a flocculent head-forming ale yeast.
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer, Allagash White is unique and truly refreshing.

Overall, it is a beer that is very drinkable and smooth any time of the year.

Fruity and spicy characteristics from the Belgian yeast and the citric and tropical qualities from the hops
his Belgian style tripel pours a beautiful straw color and has aromas of spice, pepper, and clove phenolics from the Belgian yeast. Just enough hop presence to balance the big malt bill along with a copious addition of Belgian Candi sugar to keep this beer clean and the finish dry.
Our spiced California style Wit is both refreshing and complex. Brewed with wheat, coriander, California orange peel and local orange blossom honey. From the first sip to the last youâ€™ll find subtle flavors of bread, spice, citrus and a thirst quenching orange honey finish.
Newest seasonal fruit beer offering from TBCO. California Common beer style that is comparable to a Steam Beer. This beer has a nice malty backbone yet the light, crisp and refreshment is enhanced by the 84# of strawberry puree added in the brew. This beer is meant to be enjoyed throughout the summer months. Move aside Radlerâ€¦here comes Armed Strobbery!
AleSmith created an imperial Cali common for the occasion. Keeping stylistically sound, the brewery fermented a lager at warmer ale temperatures. The process causes the yeast to different flavors than if fermented colder. Per the brewery, the resulting beer is â€œa combination of fruity, mineral-like flavors, borne from the lager yeast esters.â€ Interestingly, this is the only time AleSmith has ever brewed this beer.

Our Hard Apple Cider is a semi-sweet cider; it is never pasteurized and never filtered. We use a unique blend of Michigan apples to balance acidity and fresh fruit flavors. This product should be served cold in a pint glass
After the harvest, we press our organic apples and allow them to slowly ferment for up to six months. We then carefully hand-fill and label each bottle and let it age for several weeks to properly condition.
There are only two ingredients in our Orchard Gate Gold: Apple Juice and Yeast. No artificial flavors or colors and - of course - no sulfite nor preservatives of any kind.
As the sun arcs low in the mid day sky, this yearâ€™s harvest is slowly fermenting in its winter slumber.
Everyone here at the Orchard enjoys a few halcyon days to remember the hard work in the last yearâ€™s harvest. We look forward to next yearâ€™s crop of apples.
To warm ourselves in the cold northern solstice we enjoy our winter cider. Lightly spiced with ethically traded cinnamon, vanilla and a wee drop of syrup from our old Maple trees on our farm.
Enjoy this wonderful cider cool or gently warmed, savor a tipple to reflect on your last year and bountiful new year beginning.
Our brewer, David, being a native of the warmth of the Florida sun, began to get a bit â€œtiredâ€ of the traditional Chicagoland winter. He decided to brew this one with visions of again feeling the warmth of the sun on his face while enjoying his brew at an outdoor, sidewalk beer garden. He says â€œOnce that happensâ€¦spring is finally here!â€ Get your flip-flops out. Summer is just around the corner. Cheers! Slightly tart from the addition of blackberry puree. Fresh full hop flavor. Traditional light straw notes as expected in a saison. Easy drinking session style beer just right for the spring season
Our fourth offering from the Mothership is a traditional French farmhouse ale aged on brettanomyces for four months. This produces notes of tropical fruit and
barnyard funk in the aroma. The finish is malt forward with notes of plum and
raisin and more of the complex brett characteristics.
Saison that is brewed with mangos and aged in Lunazul tequilla barrels with Brettanomyces.
Slightly tart from the addition of pear puree. Fresh full hop flavor. Traditional light straw notes as expected in a saison. Easy drinking session style beer.
Made with pilsner and red wheat malts. Hopped and dry hopped with German Tettnange for a total of 1 lb per barrel. Herbal and floral aromas with a clean, crisp mouth feel and slightly sweet finish.
Arcanum is our beastly, pale German Weizenbock that clocks in at a mean 7.8% ABV. Hefty and malty, but far from cloying, this Weissbier was brewed to Bock strength thanks to a plethora of German Munich and Vienna malts. White wheat makes up a majority of the grist giving this beer a soft, bready, somewhat chewy body which allows the clean banana, citrus, and clove yeast esters to balance an already dangerously easy drinking German classic. Itâ€™s no secretâ€”this beer screams Winter in Bavaria.
A spiced Winter Warmer brewed with nutmeg, clove, allspice and other holiday flavors.
A holiday ale brewed with honey and spiced with fresh ginger and cinnamon. Availability, November to December.
Name Origin: For the holidays, from crowded stores to awkward office parties to grating family get-togethers, it's still a time to be thankful. Especially for a festive holiday ale that will make you wish the holidays would last just a bit longer.
Tastes just like a root beer soda - but a lot stronger!
Each year, when people are starting to unpack their winter clothes and replenish their firewood, our tiny brewery in the coastal redwoods of Northern California makes seasonal preparations of a different kind. As the cold arrives, we release a unique beverage created to add warmth to even the coldest and darkest of winter's days. Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale begins with a very high original gravity to create a hearty and spicy brew with a deep amber hue and a smooth finish. Anderson Valley Brewing Company wishes you the very best for the holiday season and the New Year.
Just like the Evolution replaced the Shovelhead, our Big Twin DIPA is evolving into a killer 8% intensely hopped, bright double IPA with a dry but bitter finish. Hopped with mandarina and mosaic, it is a superbly well balanced brew!
West Coast IIPA
In most cases, skipping a step is a bad thing. Not this time. This version of Stone Enjoy By IPA omits the part where we filter out the extra yeast, hop sediment and proteins that build up in beer as a natural result of the brewing process. Though it may sound like it, this missed step was no misstep. By letting this IPA go unfiltered, its peach and tropical fruit hop flavors are amplified while its golden-hued color takes on a hazy appearance. Like its filtered counterpart, this IPA is brewed specifically NOT to last, and is shipped immediately to ensure hopheads get their hands on it as soon as possible.

Navaja is a Double IPA that changes each time we brew it, unless we donâ€™t change it. This go-round is a little more This is the first time weâ€™ve brought this out of its scabbard.

Navaja is a Double IPA that changes each time we brew it, unless we donâ€™t change it. This go-round is a little more aggressive. Heavy on Citra, Mosaic, and Columbus hops and Golden Promise malt; Navaja is a shredder rotating on all cylinders.Navaja is a shredder rotating on all cylinders.
Big, juicy and citrus aroma. Comes out a bright golden hue. With throwing in Mosaic and Mandarina Bavaria hops, this beer has a luscious mouthfeel. Add in oak, vanilla and slight smoke nuances and you have a winner. We added Caramel malt to smooth out the end and really balance out the beer. The dry, lingering will keep you asking for more!
Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is a Double Belgian IPA brewed exclusively with Galaxy hops. The nose is an impressive blend of citrus aromas reminiscent of guava and lemons. It also has subtle Belgian yeast esters. An intense, clean bitterness dominates the flavor profile, with little malt character to compete with. A fruity yeast sweetness is noticeable in the finish, alongside a resounding bitterness.
Brewed with Grapefruit Juice. Aromas of floral citrus and mango dominate this release. While the flavor leads with a burst of bright papaya, pineapple and tangerine, and finishes with hints of spice from the hops and a clean, sweet malt undertone.
This beer is intended to be our interpretation, paying homage, to the true west coast style. Expect big, bold and bracing bitterness with tropical fruit notes of mango and grapefruit. Taste the bold and resinous flavor from massive dry hopping. But you better be careful 'cause this brew will take you from 0-100 real fast!
An American Wheat Ale, Gumballhead is named in honor of the underground comic book cat created by Rob Syers. Initially a seasonal summer beer, now brewed year round due to demand. This beer helped redefine American Wheat Beers. Brewed with Amarillo Hops and a generous portion of American red wheat, Gumballhead has a complex hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, marmalade and peach. These flavors combined with low bitterness make Gumballhead a refreshing American Wheat Beer that doesn't suck.
Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Founders' robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It's a lover, not a fighter.
Robust, full bodied porter with roasted notes of chocolate and dark caramel.
Our flagship Porter, Eleanor, with Madagascar Vanilla Beans served on Nitro.
Crystal and Chinook full-hopped character, dark orange hued in color, light on the nose but has a nice spicy/sweet finish. Caramel sweet maltiness with peppery spiciness from the rye. This is the beer that makes "Lincoln-Way" famous!
A unique style makes for a unique beer. Sweet nose and palate from the cacao nibs and vanilla beans. Lightly hopped with Bravo and Cascade offering a pleasant taste not often found in stouts. Mix in 4 gallons of Dark Matter Chocolate City and now you have got a real winner. Lingering soft finish makes this an easy drinking stout that shouldnâ€™t be missed.
The Collaboration series is our way to bring shared beer ideas to life with some of our favorite brewery friends from around the world. This year, we bring you a specially blended, barrel-aged beer with the help of our sister brewery in California, Firestone Walker.

Honey Wine Fermented with Coco. This sweet and chocolaty wine has a minty chocolate character with lush honey flavor.
A semi-dry mead made from honey fermented with fresh Wisconsin cranberries. Mixes well in a wheat or domestic beer
A brew uniquely different from most coffee stouts, we cram Higher Grounds roasted fair trade espresso beans into every facet of the brewing process. Prominent aromatics of malt, espresso, and cocoa are abundant and create a flavor robust with big malt characters fused with cream and coffee. The perfect morning night capper.
Magical natural process beans from the Konga region of Ethiopia lead the way in this beautiful coffee stout. This rare variety of coffee leads to aromas of sweet roastiness and flavors of blueberry pie. Lactose, or milk sugar, is added along with oats for a silky medium body and a lush finish. Red Bull and vodka done the long way for old men; not teenagers.
