Vera Pistachio Cream Ale 5% 
Pistachios lend this delicate cream ale a luscious character and delicious flavor like no other beer you’ve tried before. We brew it with a touch of Caravienne malt, which adds slightly more body than your traditional cream ale. And at just 5% ABV, you’ll want to get crackin’ with more than one!

Proximal Barrel Aged Barleywine 13%
This graceful, English-style Barleywine spent over nine months in Route 12 Spirits rye barrels. Flavors of molasses, vanilla and toffee intertwine seamlessly with an alcoholic heat that lets you know you’re drinking a seriously big beer, but without overwhelming the palate.

Juice Trials Hazy IPA 7.0%
Trials (noun): the act of trying, testing, or putting to the proof.
How much is too much when it comes to hops? How juicy can an IPA be? Dunno. Let’s find out. This fourth trial puts Mosaic, Simcoe and Bravo to the test revealing pronounced tropical fruit notes along with a bit of stone fruit. Examine the evidence for yourself — you be the judge.

Rewind Hefeweissbier  5.3%
This straight-ahead Hefeweissbier (the original hazy beer style) doesn’t have any foreign adjuncts or other tricks; just great banana and spice character emanating from the yeast and classic brewing processes. Rewind is light and refreshing with layers of flavor that really kick out the jams.

Acid Test Fermenter-Soured Blackberry Ale 4.4%
It’s always been more about the journey for us. Because sometimes how you get there means as much as where you end up. So rather than a traditional kettle-sour method, this fruited sour ale uses a special type of yeast that produces lactic acid in the fermenter, developing a lightly puckering character. A dose of juicy blackberries adds contrast and balance to the trip. Get ready to blast off. 

Acid Test Watermelon Fermenter-Soured Ale 4.4%
It’s always been more about the journey for us. Because sometimes how you get there means as much as where you end up. So rather than a traditional kettle-sour method, this fruited sour ale uses a special type of yeast that produces lactic acid in the fermenter, developing a lightly puckering character. A dose of watermelon & sea salt adds contrast and balance to the trip. Get ready to blast off. 

Lost Words Hazy IPA 6.7%
Lost Words is the second in our series of Hazy IPAs focused on using the latest scientific research available to extract the most flavor and aroma from new world hops. Chit malt amps up the beta glucans to aid in binding thiols and hop oil-compounds during biotransformation. Maltodextrin, added late in the boil, creates a rich body that supports the hop flavor – Amarillo in the whirlpool and active ferment dry hop adds loads of Gerinol that transforms into lime-like B-citronellol and Sabro in the later dry hop for its unique coconut qualities. Fruity, well balanced and not too sweet, with just enough hop bitterness to remind you it’s an IPA. Enjoy!

Puffing Billy  Brown Ale w/Cacao Nibs 6.9%
We love Browns. And you should too! Roasty malts and chocolaty flavors – what’s not to love? Ours is finished with cacao nibs to add another nuanced layer of chocolate aroma & flavor to the already complex interplay of this well-balanced ale.

Dark Star Stout with Chocolate and Orange 8%
Let’s drink stout. You and I. While we can. Graceful and silky with Ghiradelli dark chocolate and sweet orange. Coaxing other robust flavors from beyond their veil: caramel, toast, a slight bit of roast.

Australian Galaxy hops were added to the mix along with Citra and Amarillo to make this special version of Juice Pillow. It’s bursting with tropical and citrus goodness and don’t you forget about that luscious, pillowy mouthfeel! Contains milk sugar.

Our coffee milk stout is brewed with lactose and an Ethiopian heirloom coffee bean from Passion House Roasters, with notes described as having bright coffee acidity and floral tasting notes. Balanced by the sweetness of the lactose, this beer has strong chocolate and caramel notes from the dark malts use in the grain bill.

Awwww, who’s a hazy little boi??!! Who wants a little Simcoe and Citra treat??? No need to play dead, or roll over, we’re giving you a nice little hazy surprise in your bowl today.

Tilly Mango and Papaya Hefeweizen 4.6%
Tilly is named after our second foster, Matilda. Tilly is a Hefeweizen brewed with white wheat malt, papayas, mangos, and finished off with citrusy Cascade hops. We think it’s the perfect beer for sitting out in the sun but we are a little biased.
