ON TAP - Our Flagship Beers:

(* = Gluten Reduced)

* "Very Nice Pale Ale":Easy drinking ale. Not intensely hop forward, but dry hopped enough with Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic hops to make it interesting.  The boil includes a “Very Nice” bittering with Galena and Cascade hops and then balanced with late addition of Mosaic hop. Well balanced, designed to be no more, or no less, than “Very Nice”. ABV: 6.5%  IBU: 33 ($15/64 oz growler fill)

* "Calmer Than You Are" Session IPALight bodied and light in alcohol.  Generous late additions of Citra and Mosaic Hop and then dry hopped with Motueka, Mosaic, and Citra make for a huge hop forward character in a very easy drinker.  Lots of citrus in the form of grapefruit and orange followed up with tones of mango, passion fruit and kiwi.  Designed to be bursting with flavor but still "calmer than you are". ABV:  4.6%  IBU:  35 ($15/64 oz growler fill)

* "Royal We IPA": CURRENTLY OUT...AVAILABLE IN 22-OZ BOMBER ONLY. Huge hop forward character delivered with a double dry hop of Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic.  This provides a beautiful grapefruit and orange essence characteristic of the American IPA. The body is kept light with only a small amount of crystal malt to allow the hop bouquet and flavor to shine through.  Early additions of Cascade and Galena hops balance out the hop forward with an appropriate bitter background. ABV: 7.2%  IBU: 70 ($15/64 oz growler fill)

*  “Fuggly & Brown”:  Mono-hopped and named after the earthy and mildly citrus hop, Fuggles.  A malty beer with low hop aroma and bitterness, brewed in the tradition of an English brown.  Some slight fruity esters.  Traditionally, brown sugar would be used, but we stuck with our locally sourced honey instead, lightening up the body and contributing some slightly floral notes. ABV:  5.0%  IBU:  23 ($15/64 oz growler fill) 

* "Monk's Phunk" (Belgian Abbey Ale): Strong ale named after a strong woman!  Our brewer’s dear mother! This recipe is crafted as a tribute to the tradition the Monk’s started in Belgium over a thousand years ago. It includes lots of Munich, various crystal malt, and a shot of chocolate malt, giving it a deep burgundy color and a heavenly rich caramel taste that literally would bring people to cathedrals in Europe. It has enlightening fruity esters from the Belgian yeast as well as divine sweetness from a gallon (12 lbs) of wild Colorado honey per barrel. ABV: 9.0%  IBU: 23 ($32/64 oz growler fill)

* "The Logical Fallacy": This beer challenges the Logical Fallacy that says if a beer is a stout, it shouldn’t be bittered. We brew it with generous hop additions of Summit and Northern Brewer.  This hop bill is challenged with the smokiness of black patent malt, coffee tones of chocolate malt, and a decadent mixture of caramel malts.  This is a unique stout that will make you look deep into this beer, and lose yourself in its complicated malty taste and intense oil like blackness. ABV: 6.5%  IBU: 53 ($15/64 oz growler fill)

ON TAP - Premium / Limited Beers:

* "Valto": (Very Nice brewing and Salto Coffee Works Collaboration) Salto Coffee roasted a decadent blend of Coffee for us imparting notes of toffee almond and stone fruit. For the Very Nice part, we put together a smooth, rich Porter recipe with ample chocolate and caramel malts balanced with the vibrant citrus and soft pine of Centennial hops. To prepare the coffee, we utilized a process called “Toddying” in which the coffee is slowly brewed in room temperature water for no less than 24 hours.  This allows us to get the entire flavor profile without any of the acidity. The coffee is immediately recognizable in the finished product, complimenting the roastiness of black patent and chocolate malts. ABV: 5.6% IBU: 26 ($20/64 oz growler fill)

* "The Mezcal Bastard, from parts unknown!": Stout brewed with fresh poblano peppers and then aged with Spanish Cedar and Banhez Mezcal. Rife with smoky and earthy notes from the mezcal and roasted malts. From the cedar, spicy white pepper, citrus, and tobacco that might remind one of a fine cigar. The final step is to cycle the entire batch with orange purée to cut any bitter from the spirits with sweetness. ABV: 7.0% IBU: 25 ($25/64 oz growler fill)

* "Mr. Plow" (Double IPA): Mr. Plow is back! A salute to the folks who keep our roads safe and drivable. A Nederland double IPA with the appearance of a slight haze due to the oils resulting from the heavy dry hopping with pounds of Strata, Cashmere & Idaho 7 hops. This double has a balanced, bitter backbone so you know you are actually drinking an IPA. Come try some before we get a cease and desist from a certain cartoon franchise. ABV: 8.5% IBU: 50 ($32/64 oz fill)

* "Dirk vs Shillelagh": CURRENTLY OUT...AVAILABLE IN 22-OZ BOMBER ONLY. A Scottish/Irish hybrid. Brewed with a rich cornucopia of malts, including dark crystal, roasty black, velvety chocolate, and even a smattering of smoky peated malt. In the Nederland tradition, we refuse to pigeon hole this ale in a specific category. Is it an Irish red? Is it a scotch ale? You decide! Whether you want to sit around with friends reminiscing about feats of strength or take home a growler to drink whilst throwing heavy objects at each other to see who flinches, this is your ale. ABV: 6.2% IBU: 26 ~~

* "I Enjoy Schuhplatteln By Myself": Our quarantine kveik! ABV: 5.2% IBU: 10 ($14/64 oz growler fill)

................

* Gluten Reduced - defined

Most of our beers are “gluten reduced”.  What does this mean?  We use a product called ClarityFerm, it is an enzyme.  Theoretically it reduces the levels of gluten down to less than 5PPM which is well below the international standard of 20PPM.  However, having each batch tested is far too costly so we do not claim gluten free, only crafted for gluten reduction.

The enzyme is extracted from Aspergillus Nigerus.  Commonly know as bread mold.  Bread mold is very good at cleaving up gluten and uses the enzyme to do it.   The enzyme is very similar to Amylase, the enzyme that all brewing depends on.  Amylase breaks down starch and turns it into Glucose (sugar).  The enzyme from the ClarityFerm is just specific to gluten.
