New Bourbon Aged Beer on Tap

Killer Kapowski aged 5 months in an oak bourbon barrel (9%) is now pouring under the name "Killer Wood". Delish.

New Stout Pouring Now

Devout Stout (Oatmeal Stout) has been tapped and is currently pouring. This opaque black stout has plenty of roasted malts to keep the chill away. Medium-bodied and moderately hopped, this beer has hints of coffee and earthy flavors. At 5.5%, there may just well be some devout followers of this one! A tip of the hat to Richard Grant, our Assistant Brewer for coming up with this tasty treat.

Bottles, bottles, and more bottles....

Black Magic IPA will be in bottles starting Tuesday, November 10th. They will have a Black Metallic wax.

We have in our fermentation tanks a "bottle-only" release beer, and as the release suggests will not be sold on draft. It is called "Hi-Fi Rye". Hi-Fi is a Rye Wine or for those who are all technical and such, a barley wine-style ale made with more than 50% rye malt. Ours happens to be 58% rye and hopefully will finish around 11%. This beer will be aged in stainless and bottled in February for a release of 55 cases. We are splitting this batch with some going into barrels for another bottle release this time next year with a bourbon aged version of Hi-Fi (~75 cases). Can't wait to enjoy this one.

New Bourbon Beer at the Station

Well, it appears all of the Barrel Aged Big Black Pumpkin has been consumed. That is certainly bittersweet as it was a great barrel aged offering. HOWEVER, not to disappoint, we are currently offering the Pullman's Reserve on draft. We took a Pullman Brown ale and aged it in a Bourbon barrel for five months. What we get out is an extremely complex, dark, delicious brew. Flavors of oak, bourbon, and Pullman Brown are equally represented and warm the belly at around 8%ABV. Get your snifter today.
