Beers

Wolf 359 CDA
Highland Brewery
A Cascadian Dark Ale has invaded our tap list! Debittered dark malts contribute hints of roast and an ominous black hue. The spicy, herbal distinctiveness of dry Tettnanger Hops is added to the collective of pine-forward kettle hops, adapting to service us. Rye Malt's zesty character modulates our taste buds, and a dry finish assimilates our thirst for good. Resistance is futile.
Special Techniques: Dry-Hopped
Malts: 2-Row, Rye, Midnight Wheat, Crystal Rye, Blackprinz
Hops: Simcoe, Tettnanger, Chinook, Idaho 7, Horizon
OG: 1.060 TG: 1.010 ABV: 6.45 IBU: 70 SRM: 29

One Night in Bangkok Thai Sour
Edgefield Brewery
One Night in Bangkok is a light, tart German-inspired Kettle Sour brewed with lime and Thai basil. It's a unique blend of herbal, citrus and sour flavors that tickle the tastebuds.
Special Techniques: Kettle Soured
Special Ingredients: Thai Basil
Fruit: Lime
Malts: Pilsner, Wheat, Acidulated
Hops: Meridian
OG: 1.054 TG: 1.012 ABV: 5.42 IBU: 7 SRM: 4

Hawthorne Kölsch
Edgefield Brewery
This light, summery ale is a perfect blend of soft malt and a touch of spicy hop character. A light, bready flavor leads into a smooth, crisp finish. Have a pint and enjoy this classic German-style beer!
Malts: Pilsen, Acidulated, Wheat
Hops: Perle, Tettnanger
OG: 1.048 TG: 1.009 ABV: 5.03 IBU: 22 SRM: 3

2016 Whiskey Widow
Concordia Brewery
The Black Widow has emerged from her hiding place and is spinning a whole new web! Whiskey Widow is a darkly sublime Porter that's been aged for three months in an Edgefield Whiskey barrel. The result is a dark elixir, rich with oaky smoothness, a bold bourbon aroma and hints of vanilla! This is truly a dark beauty that packs a vicious bite!

Back In Session Fresh Hop ISA
Concordia Brewery
Fall is in the air and what better way to celebrate than with a Fresh Hopped Session Ale? This refresher is packed full of wet Citra Hops, picked straight from the vine. This harvest ISA has flavor and aroma to spare!

Hops: Citra
OG: 1.049 TG: 1.009 ABV: 5.16 IBU: 49 SRM: 5
