SEASONAL BEERS

Whiteout – White Stout – Here’s an interesting twist on stout beers, Whiteout White Stout.

A must try!

Hot Pepper I.P.A. – It’s HopRocket time again! We’ve stuffed the Rocket with jalapeño and habanero peppers and it’s hooked up to the Moon Beam I.P.A. This is a well balanced spicy and hoppy flavor combination for the not so faint of heart.
ABV=6.6% O.G.=1.062 IBU=87

Rye Ice Pale Ale – This Rye Ice Pale Ale is made with top notch rye malt and Mosaic hops. we use a technique called Fractional Freezing to form water crystals in the beer to remove some of the water, which produces a more concentrated flavor and a higher alcohol content. Mildly hoppy up front and slightly spicy on the back end from the rye malt.
ABV=6.2% O.G.=1.048 IBU=40

Raz/Mango Wheat – Spring is around the corner and this beer will take you there now.  Hints of raspberry and the subtle taste of mango make this a delightful and tasty brew.
ABV=5.0% O.G.=1.042 IBU=13

how we do it

The brewing process starts with crushed malts that are mixed with hot water to steep in the Mash Tun. There the starches in the malts are converted to the right ratio of fermentable to unfermentable sugars by enzymes that naturally occur in the malted grains. The sugars dissolve in the water, and that sweet liquid, called wort, is slowly strained from the Mash Tun into the Kettle leaving the remaining body and husks of the grains behind. In the Kettle, the wort is boiled, and bittering and aromatic herbs called hops are added to achieve the right balance for a specific style of beer.

From the Kettle, the wort is then whirlpooled to separate the solids from the liquid. It is then cooled down using a counter-flow heat exchanger and transferred into a Fermentation Tank. There, the select strain of brewer’s yeast is added and all the magic starts to happen. Fermentation! When using an ale yeast, fermentation takes approximately 2-3 weeks. When using a lager yeast, fermentation takes about 4-6 weeks.

Once fermentation is complete, the beer is ready to drink. It gets transferred to a serving tank and is dispensed from the taps in our beautiful bar room for all to enjoy.
