(for 5.5 US Gallons / 20.8 Litres)

Light Blonde Ale—Butchy Smooth

3.3% ABV, 8 IBU, 5 SRM, Est OG 1.034

Who said a Light Beer couldn’t be full of flavor? It is the lightest, smoothest beer of the bunch. Great flavorful replacement for Coors Light, Miller Lite, Bud Light, etc.. I always have this beer in rotation and you should do the same.

Witbier—Witty Wit Pecker

4% ABV, 13 IBU, 3.6 SRM, Est OG 1.040

An easy drinking brew with a dazzling mix of spices. Smooth, yet complex, in a very sessionable package that rivals Blue Moon or Celis White.

Hefeweizen—Hefe Nother One

4% ABV, 15 IBU, 3.6 SRM, Est OG 1.040

Another easy drinking brew that is very sessionable all day long. This Wheat Beer is similar to our Witbier, minus all the spices. Using a Hefe yeast strain will bring out the characteristic clove and banana aromas and flavors.

  • 4# White Wheat

Brown Ale—Bust A Nut

5.4% ABV, 18 IBU, 15 SRM, Est OG 1.054

A smooth Nut Brown Ale with a creamy off white resilient head that provides lots of lacing. Bready, toasty aroma that follows through to the taste. This beer smells and tastes like victory!

  • 2# Victory
  • 1# Crystal 40

Morning Stout

5.4% ABV, 46 IBU, 24 SRM, Est OG 1.054

Here’s a Stout that is light enough to have with breakfast and yet bold enough to have for breakfast. An aroma and flavor dominated by coffee, roasted barley and hints of chocolate. Worthy as is, Morning Stout also creates a great foundation for a brew you’d like to add coffee beans to, perhaps cold steeped in secondary. This one carries a dear spot in my rotation and I’m always sad when it’s not on tap.

Vanilla Porter—Vanna Pour Her

5.5% ABV, 29 IBU, 30 SRM, Est OG 1.055

A Creamy Brown Porter brought up to the next level by adding 5 Madagascar Vanilla Beans. A nose dominated by vanilla with a hint of roastiness. Flavors of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and toffee. Fairly dark with a tan head. Let this one warm up as you drink it and take the Flavor Temp Ride. Your taste buds will thank you.
