Bretta Blanc is a Wine Beer Hybrid made with Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc Hybrid beers that were created during the 2016 harvest using grapes from our very own David Walker’s Kingsley Vineyard. These two hybrids were then blended with Bretta Weisse to create what we are now calling Bretta Blanc.
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.
A variant from our Velvet Merkin, Molé Merkin was inspired by the traditional Mexican dish, Molé. We added dried Puya chili, cinnamon and cocoa nibs from the Dominican Republic to a Brandy barrel aged version of our Velvet Merkin. The chili adds a spicy yet approachable heat with rich dark berry fruit flavor. The addition of cocoa nibs helps balance the heat from the peppers, adding to the mouthfeel. The result is a complex yet delicate beer with flavors of earthy chili pepper, cinnamon and cocoa.
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.
