Lager German Pilsner 5% ABV, 33 IBU, 3.2 SRM
Probably the most basic, yet complex, beer we brew. A single malt (German pilsner malt) and German Hallertauer Hersbrucker hops create this light gold, crisp lager.
English Pale Ale 5.5% ABV, 38 IBU, 14 SRM
More amber and less “hoppy” than its American counterpart, plenty of crystal malts create a well balanced finish for our variation on this English style. Hops: Northern Brewer, Northdown, East Kent Goldings.
Kölsch-style Ale 5.4% ABV, 22 IBU, 3.9 SRM
A very light golden ale originating from Cologne, Germany. Very light hop flavor, considered the “lager of ales” because it is aged at cold temperatures much like a lager. Hops: Hallertauer, Saaz.
Oktoberfest / Märzen 5.5% ABV, 24 IBU, 7 SRM
Traditional fall German fest beer with a deep malt character and a dry finish. Hops:Hallertauer

A traditional German Hefeweizen, light in color, made from a 50/50 split of wheat and pilsner, with a yeast strain that gives a mild flavor of banana and clove. Hops:Hallertauer

Oatmeal Ginger Stout (6% ABV, 33.6 IBU, 39 SRM)
A stout with more body from the flaked oatmeal, and the added flavor of fresh ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Hops: Target, East Kent Golding
Black India Pale Ale (8% ABV, 61 IBU, 37 SRM)
A much darker ale (aka “Cascadian Ale,” or “American Style Black Ale”).

The hop flavor really cuts through the sweetness of the dark roasted malts. Hops: Cascade, Centennial, Northern Brewer, Fuggles, East Kent Golding

ABV – Alcohol by Volume
SRM – Standard Reference Method – an indication of the color of the beer. The higher the number, the darker the beer.
IBU – International Bittering Units – a measurement of how much hops are utilized in a recipe. Although it can be a rough indication of how “hoppy” a beer is, a beer with a low IBU may have more hop flavor than one with a higher number.
