5.8% ABV // 30 IBU // 1.054 O.G.
malty + crisp + medium body

Brewed in the Sticke (shtick-uh) Alt style, this is a stronger, bigger-bodied variation of the traditional Altbier from the Westfalia region of Germany. A combination of caramel and Munich malts contribute a nutty sweetness with notes of toffee. Fermentation at a cool temperature creates a clean, refreshing character to balance the complex malt profile. This malt-forward beer is punctuated with hops that are floral and slightly-spicy.

Hops: Palisade, Cascade, Sterling
Malt: 2-Row Pale, Munich, Caramunich, Wheat, C-120, Carafa

5.6% ABV // 181 IBU // 1.056 OG

medium body + piney + bitter

Our first fresh hop beer of 2016 was brewed with 50 lbs of Centennial hops grown in a unique coastal micro-climate in Northern California. These Centennials provide intense aromas and flavors of pine which dominate in the beer. Calculated at an astounding 181 IBUs (although we highly doubt its actually that bitter), this beer is an example of what woodsy, piney and dank hops have to offer when used fresh and in the right proportions.

Hops: Azacca, Centennial, Chinook, Mosaic
Malt: 2-Row Pale, Brittish Pale, Vienna
