Chilly Water
Wheat based Pale Ale that is fermented very clean with American ale yeast giving it a crisp, refreshing finish.  Citra and Amarillo hops provide an aroma and flavor of mango, tangerine, and other soft citrus fruit. Warning, this beer may cause a widespread panic… hint at the name’s origin!
Style:American Pale Ale

Scarlet Fire
Scarlet > Fire is an Irish-style Red Ale. The Name is a reference to the playful, improvisational transition between Grateful Dead’s Scarlet Begonias and Fire on the Mountain. Scarlet > Fire has a nice balance of malt sweetness from caramel malt and subtle toasty notes from roasted barley. The beer is brewed with American Ale yeast, and the hops are East Kent Golding’s, paying tribute to its heritage as an Irish Red Ale.
Style:Red Ale
ABV: 5.6%

Irie IPA
Irie (pronounced, “EYE-ree”) is a malty and complex IPA.  Named for the Jamaican word “Irie” meaning “good, excellent, great or of good quality,” this beer is all of those and more. With an original gravity of about 1.070, the malt profile provides a sturdy backbone for the generous amount of Simcoe, Centennial, and Columbus hops.   American Ale yeast ferments this beer cleanly allowing the dank hop qualities to come through in all their glory… IRIE Mon!
ABV: 7.8%
