We conditioned fairly oaky (by our standard) wild ale on whole cluster syrah grapes (stems included with the grapes) from Los Olivos, California for an incredibly wine-like experience. This is served still to bring this beer even further in the wine direction. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry compote, ripe raspberry lead into smooth flavors of berry jam, fig and a faint hint of dark chocolate. Catch the faint hint of brettanomyces in the background like you’re drinking a naturally produced wine. Many thanks are due to Drake Whitcraft of Whitcraft Winery for collaborating on this beer with us. Drake helped source and harvest the grapes for us off his friend Matt’s land.
This deeply hazy, light bodied beer has aromas of lemon and lime zest, pineapple, pear and pine. The flavor is pungently dank but equally soft and grainy with white bread notes from a small addition of Canadian wheat malt. It's a true easy drinker but doesn't lack in flavor one bit. Hops: New Zealand Motueka, and Australian Galaxy and Enigma.
Aromas of lemon and lime, orange candy, and geranium blossom come together with the crackery malt forming something reminiscent of a certain children's fruit cereal. The flavor is clean and balanced with juicy hops and bready malt and a lingering grassy bitterness.
The very first Cellarmaker IPA! With Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, Simcoe & Centennial hops. Aromas of mango & overripe passion fruit, lychee and rambutan, pine, & a slight diesel character from the Nelson Sauvin. The flavor is a burst of fruity resinous pine which transitions to an assertive bitterness supported by the peppery, oily rye. Slang some hops in yo’ face!
Good As Hell 2
This beer is brewed with light colored English pale malts and German wheat malt for a soft crackery, bready backbone supporting citrus & pine aromas from a judicious hopping of Centennial, Riwaka, Wai-iti, HBC 344 & Citra. We gave this beer a week’s extra cold time for incredible smoothness. At 4.8% ABV, this beer is meant for hours of gregarious drinking without losing your wits.
Pilsner is enjoying a recent resurgence in popularity. What is it about this style that excites a brewer's joie de vivre? Maybe the light malt flavors supporting enticingly spicy hop aromas (without getting in their way), and the mouth-watering pronounced hop flavor, all within a low-alcohol package that keeps you coherent. It's a style that invigorates, not incapacitates -- so drink up! Prost!
Spiced Coffee Porter
Inspired by Moroccan spiced coffee, Dark Senses is a rich and decadent porter layered with a fragrant blend of spices (Cardamom, cloves & star anise) dutch cocoa, and Four Barrel El Tablon espresso. The texture is perfectly silky, and the aromas and flavors contribute an intense complexity that evolves as the beer warms.

Mashed with local barley from Riverbend Malt House and flaked oats. Fermented with our clean and crisp house saison yeast blend. Injected into the fermenter with one whole actual ton of New Appalachia. Fermented again on the peaches until bone dry. This quenchable and crushable fruit beer has a lovely peach skin aroma that follows into the taste.
Chaos is a Friend of Mine – Beachwood Blendery
Blending barrels of our base beer to produce the flavor profile of a Belgian Lambic. Chaos ensues from the countless strains of yeast & bacteria fighting for dominance, after 9 - 14 months in the barrel, we introduce the power of blending to bring order back, ultimately creating a beer that's greater than the sum of its parts. Funk takes center stage in this brew, with notes of barnyard, stone fruit & aged hops.
