ON TAP - Our Flagship Beers:

(* = Gluten Reduced)

"Steffie's Heffe": CURRENTLY OUT...BACK SOON! The Valkyrie is back!!! and she's better than ever! Back from a small hiatus to play with some alternative summer Ales. As with all our ales, we work to improve with each batch. This one has enhanced citrus tones by utilizing lots more orange peel and citra hop late additions. You may notice the darker look due to more of the orange peel's hue coming through from extended whirlpool additions.Orange has always been a welcome addition to Hefeweizen and we hope you'll enjoy this refreshing enhancement. Perfect for relief from the mid-summer heat. Our Bavarian friend Steffie, the beer’s namesake, has vetted this beer and she has ensured us that, “Es ist sehr net”. ABV: 5.5%  IBU: 11  ($15/64 oz growler fill)

* "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 IPA Light 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": 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)

* "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: 10.3%  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:

* "Way She Goes" (Imperial Stout aged with wood & whiskey): Even though there was no anniversary party we do have an anniversary ale! It’s been 8 years! We need something to mark it! An imperial stout but not over the top at 8.5%. This smoky, decadent, black concoction was aged for a month on charred oak that had been soaked for weeks in Old Forrester Bourbon. The Bourbon aged on virgin oak contribute a strong vanilla character that plays Very Nicely (see what I did there) with smoky, coffee, and chocolate tones. We are naming our 2020 anniversary ale “Way She Goes”. Cuz, if 2020 has taught us anything it’s that sometimes she goes and sometimes she doesn’t, but it’s always just the “Way She Goes”. ABV: 8.5% IBU: 20 ($32/64 oz growler fill)

* "Porter de Los Muertos": A porter designed to honor our ale drinking ancestors. Chocolate tones imparted by the Carafa malt and accented with the smokiness of roasted black malt and orange. Brought together by poblano chills. Not a lot of chili heat but decadent chili flavor.  ABV: 6% IBU: 26 ($20/64 oz growler fill)

"Sin-Ger": CURRENTLY OUT....BACK SOON! A refreshing mix of our Steffie's Heffe and ginger beer. Light and crisp! ABV: ~3% IBU: ?

Watch for...

"Dirk vs Shillelagh": It was so popular we're bringing it back! A scotch 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

* 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.
