Tap #1 (Nitro): Seven Wolves IPA (SRM = 5.5, IBU = 45.9, ABV = 7.6%)
Seven different kinds of hops used throughout the brewing process, plus dry-hopping, gives this golden IPA a lupulicious flavor boost hop-heads will love. Served on nitro for creamy goodness.
How ours is different: We love the flavor and aroma of hops, but aren't too big on bitterness. So, we add our hops, and lots of 'em, late in the brewing process to maximize aroma and flavor without making the beer overly bitter. We use crystal malts sparingly and lighten the body of our beer with a little corn sugar to allow the hops to stand out more. We add seven different kinds of hops, some citrusy, some piney, some resiny, etc., to hit your palate with different hop characteristics at different points for a hoppy complexity.
Tap #2 (Nitro): Rum-Raisin Stout (SRM = 38.1, IBU = 22.3 ABV = 8.1%)
high-gravity, black, creamy and very sweet stout, fermented with oats, raisins, and dark brown sugar and mild English hops. Served on nitro for a dessert-in-a-glass creaminess.
How ours is different:
We love the flavor and aroma of hops, but aren't too big on bittern We were really going for a dessert here. We wanted this
to be something you could easily drop a scoop of ice cream into, so we thickened
the body with milk sugar* and oats, and added lots of dark brown sugar for residual
molasses components, high sweetness and high alcohol.
Tap #3: Brass Ale Honey Amber (SRM = 9.9, IBU = 37.7, ABV = 6.0%)
This is a copper-colored English ale brewed with Colorado Springs honey. Slightly bitter with fruit flavors and balanced hops. This is our original version 1.0 recipe, that's a little sweeter and a little less bitter than what you may have had here previously.
Tap #4: Black Bear Zwartbier (SRM = 34.2, IBU = 25.4, ABV = 6.0%)
A popular style 500 years ago, this Belgian-style "zwartbier," or black beer, is surprisingly light in body and refreshing, with a hint of pepper and citrus.
How ours is different: Instead of using an ale yeast, we use a lager yeast on this one. We chose a yeast based on similar continental yeasts in use in Belgium 500 years ago, and fermented it at ale temperatures just like the old brewers did, to produce a unique flavor profile.
Tap #5: Seven Wolves IPA (SRM = 5.5, IBU = 45.9, ABV = 7.6%)
Same as our IPA on tap #1 above, but served on CO2 for more of a hoppy bite.
Tap #6: Shine On™ Oaked Belgian Golden Strong Ale (SRM = 8.8, IBU = 25.5, ABV = 8.1%)
After a long haitus, it's back! Aromatic malts, oats, and Belgian candy sugar give this unique ale the color and strength of the summer sun. Aged on American oak for wine-like notes
How ours is different: Well, in just about every way. We wanted it to be bigger bodied and somewhat tarter than traditional Belgian goldens, and that's how we chose our grain bill. Aging it on oak compliments the tartness in a way reminiscent of big oaky wines to create a truly unique beer.
Lightning Wit (SRM = 3.8, IBU =
18.1, ABV =
Our spring seasonal is a traditional Belgian witbier brewed with Belgian pilsner barley and white wheat, and spiced with bitter orange peel and coriander.
How ours is different: We tried to stay true to the style here by starting with a traditional witbier mix of wheat and barley and traditional witbier spicing during the boil, but then added lemon zest to the secondary fermentation to highlight the citrusy character of witbiers for a refreshing warm-weather quencher.
Tap #8: Ryenopourus (SRM = 30.7, IBU = 20.1, ABV = 5.3%)
Gretchen brewed this malty porter with a little rye malt for spicy crispness. Dark, but with a little lower alcohol for a sessionable but flavorful brew.
