Oktoberfest

German Märzen

Before mechanical refrigeration was developed German brewers would not brew in the summertime because the temperature was too warm to produce good beer. Beer would be brewed in the spring and then stored in cool cellars and caves to help preserve it. Brewing a higher alcohol beer would also help preserve it. The last beer brewed in the spring came to be known as Marzen beers or "March" beers. These beers would be served in the Fall near the time of Oktoberfest celebrations. Ours tastes of sweet maltiness and caramel, with hints of toasted biscuit throughout.

Style: Märzen/Lager
Color: Orangish Amber
Body: Medium
ABV: 6.0%
IBU: 21.8

Blue-Eyed Brunette

Bourbon Brown Ale

This Specialty brew starts with several oak spirals soaked in 12 year, Elijah Craig Bourbon. After a period of 7-10 days we add the Bourbon infused Oak Sprials to our traditional Brown Ale. We then allow the Brown Ale at least 21 days of "aging" on these Bourbon infused Oak Spirals. This produces a flavor profile with subtle hints of Oak & Bourbon complimented by the roundness and nuttiness of the English variety brought to you by the best English crystal malts and English hops.

Style: Bourbon Oak Aged Brown Ale
Color: Brown
Body: Medium
ABV: 5.6%
