A low-alcohol Berliner Weisse style ale, acidified and matured in French oak puncheons for 6 months. They added 1000 lbs. of fresh local raspberries, allowed a secondary wild fermentation for 4 more months, resulting in a crisp effervescent concoction, bursting with raspberry perfume and flavor, a rosé color, bracing acidity, and a clean and refreshing finish. 5.3% ABV.
A bountiful bouquet of citrus mingles with pronounced herbal notes, leading to funky, yeasty, citrus flavors. Soft cereal and oak aromas are enveloped by a firm acidity and tartness and punctuated by zesty tangerine. The finish is dry and crisp; a thoroughly enjoyable beverage. 4.9% ABV.
Brewmaster Matt Brynildson went to the mountain and returned with a vision for a different kind of Session IPA, one that would be brewed and dry hopped with a globetrotting selection of new hop varieties from Europe, New Zealand and North America. He foresaw a beer that would deliver massive hop aromas, a signature malt balance and an empty glass before you knew what hit you. And so the newest member of our Jack IPA family was born. 4.5% ABV.
This beer begins its life as a Flanders Red style beer aged 24 months in a 2200 gallon French oak foeder. Sour Montmorency cherries are added and allowed a secondary fermentation.

From the mind of Brewmaster Matt Brynildson comes Luponic Distortion, an ever-evolving mix of experimental hops, designed to deliver mind-blowing flavors that break the rules with each new release. 5.9% ABV.
Our classic Parabola that had maple syrup added to the whirlpool & then aged in retired maple bourbon barrels for six months. The result is soft & velvety with notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, caramel & burnt sugar. 10% ABV.

Another offering from our “Bones” series, featuring the fermentation of fresh fruit.

The synergy between fresh peach, wild microflora and oak components create a bright white peach flavor mingling with spicy yeast and oak aromas. Soft acidity and a firm carbonation lend “pop” to the overall sensory experience. It took four separate fermentations to create this concoction. 6.1% ABV.
Everything we love about classic German Pilsner with a hoppy Bohemian twist. Pils is a bright straw colored lager beer with playful carbonation topped with beautiful white foam lace. Delicate lightly toasted malt flavors underscore noble German hop character. Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils. 5.3% ABV.

We present to you a metamorphosis for your senses. Using 12 to 36month aged Agrestic Ale as a base, to which we add 1.5lbs/gal Black Currants, the beer undergoes the final maturation in our French Oak “Fruiders” for an additional four months. A convergence of supple tannin and deep purple pigments, gooseberry jam, a mouth-watering acidity and earthy leather elicit notes of a beer having vinous roots. 6.3% ABV.
Simcoe bittering hops; Centennial, Cascade and Tomahawk for flavoring; aroma hops are described as a "blend of C's." 7.5% ABV.
