Brews Around the World

Past beers that we have brewed and their origins

Take a trip with us around the world and see what unique beers we've made since we opened. We are known for our old world beer styles and recipes, creating classic or forgotten beers with a fresh take on them. We've done our homework to find and hone these recipes that truly set us apart from all the rest.

Brew Deck Blonde Ale

5.5% ABV 15 IBU's

A light, crisp, and refreshing ale, our blonde is brewed with American 2-row barley, Centennial and Cascade hops, and a clean fermenting ale yeast. This is our very first beer we ever made and it is our flagship beer that truly showcases what we do beautifully.

Warped Window IPA

​6.6% ABV 30 IBUs

Hops used: Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra, and Galaxy.

The Hazy or New England IPA (NEIPA) has its origins in a wonderful brewery in Vermont called The Alchemist. This style pushes hops far away from their typical use as a bittering ingredient and explores the lush juicy character they can bring to a beer when added late in the fermentation process. Our Hazy has nearly 3 lbs of hops per barrel, but only 8 ounces were added during the actual boil of the beer. The rest were added during knockout and during fermentation. Hops were added during the peak of active fermentation to allow the yeast to bio-transform some of the flavor compounds into something unique, and another healthy dose was added after fermentation was complete. Cloudy by design, this beer is a juice bomb!

Australian Sparkling Ale

One of the only styles of beer indigenous to Australia, the sparkling ale was first brewed and consumed by British colonists in the Australian continent. Rooted in English brewing tradition but made with distinctly Australian ingredients, this beer is in a class of its own.

Porter

Our take on the classic English porter this beer is low in alcohol but high in flavor thanks to additions of roasted barley. A base of Maris Otter malt is complemented by a traditional English yeast strain.

French Ale

France and Belgium share not only a border, but also some similar brewing traditions. This hasn’t kept France from producing their own unique beer styles and cultures, however. Less spicy and phenolic then it’s Belgian counterparts, this French Ale is subtle and delicate.

West Coast IPA

5.25% ABV 65 IBU

Our West Coast IPA is balanced with malt sweetness, light hop bitterness and full of hop aromatics. For our beer we chose the traditional American interpretation that offers a rotating hop selection that highlights this wonderful ingredient. Hops used: Columbus, Simcoe, Amarillo, and Centennial.

Extra Special Bitter or ESB

The Extra Special Bitter is a style of beer unique to Britain. ESBs are made with hops grown on the British Isles that lend an earthy richness to the beer. This hop character is balanced by malt sweetness and a fruity ester contribution from the yeast. This beer is well balanced and delicious.

Kolsch

Kölsch is a German style of beer originating in Cologne, Germany. Like champagne, a beer cannot truly be called a Kölsch unless it was brewed in Cologne. Fermented at ale temperatures and then lagered like a pilsner, this beer is light and crisp while also full of flavor and satisfying,

Prairie Fire

4.8% ABV

The Irish Red is very balanced and drinkable. This beer has moderate malt character, pleasant light hoppiness. It is made with 50lbs of potatoes in the grist to lend it an earthiness and depth of flavor.

Wee Heavy Scot

9.2% ABV 27 IBU

A complex strong beer originating In Scotland and characterized by substantial malt flavors. Wee Scot remains one of Scotland's definitive beers. This strong ale Is traditionally served In small (wee) measures due to alcohol strength.

Broyhan

4.2% ABV 12 IBU

The Broyhan has It's orgins from an Austrian brewer who wanted to make his own style of beer. Low In alcohol and lightly hopped, made with 50% barley and 50% wheat from Barton Springs Mill, just down the road from us. A true wheat beer that's easy to drink on a warm summer day.

Happoshu

5.3% ABV 15 IBU

Happoshu is a Jappanese wordthat translates to " Sparking Alcoholic Beverage". Our Happoshu Is 51% Pilsner and 49% jasmine rice. This gives the beer an Incredibly light and crisp body. We fermented the beer with Sake yeast to lend some subtle fruity aromatic notes.

Mexican Lager

6.2% ABV 19 IBU

Made with Medusa hops which is one of the only hops native to North America. These hops lend a subtle spiciness that is balanced with orange blossom honey. Rounded out with the fantastic flavor of Oaxacan green corn from our neighbors Barton Springs Mill. Fermented with Mexican Lager yeast, this beer is a perfect summertime beer.

Kentucky Common

5.5% ABV, 29 IBUs

The beer style "Common" is one of only a small handful of beers that are native to the United States. They have their roots in a German beer called a Dampfbier or "steam beer." Essentially, these are beers made with lager yeast fermented at ale temperatures because historically, breweries lacked refrigeration. The Kentucky Common is made with grains available in Kentucky in the 1800s. 6-Row Barley, Rye, Corn, and some Caramel malts make this beer similar to a bourbon mash. Please enjoy this glass of unique US history!

New Zealand Saison

5.6 ABV

Blending the best of two vastly different brewing worlds, this New Zealand Saison has the malt bill and yeast character of a traditional Belgian Saison with fruity notes and slight peppery kick. Motueka and Wakatu hops from New Zealand complement and enhance the yeast profile and make for a wonderful blend of flavors.

Lithuanian Farmhouse

Beer brewing can take many strange paths. Historically in Eastern Europe, beer was made with barley, oats, or wheat. When those ingredients became scarce or costly, alternatives were often used. In this case peas. This Lithuanian Farmhouse ale is a take on a historic style called "March Beer" where a portion of the grain bill consists of split green peas. The beer isn't green and it doesn't taste like soup, but there is a wonderful earthy undertone from the addition of this unorthodox ingredient. Rounded out by Czech hops and a very traditional Lithuanian yeast, this beer is a journey into brewing history.

Austrian Horner

4.3% ABV 15 IBUs

Horner—from the Lower Austrian town called Horn—was popular in Austria the 1700s and 1800s, and especially in Vienna. Its earliest known mention is a 1687 ducal resolution regarding taxes on beer. The composer, Mozart, actually wrote a song about Horner as his favorite summer drink.

This beer is made with 100% oat malt which makes it an outlier already, but the addition of cream of tartar lends a very subtle lemony tartness.

The Horner is a truly fascinating slice of beer history.

Rosa Zoigl

​5.4% ABV 20 IBUs

The Rosa Zoigl is the result of a collaboration brew day with the Austin area Pink Boots Society chapter. The Pink Boots is an organization that helps support and elevate women in the brewing industry; a cause near and dear to our hearts. The Zoigl itself is a Bavarian lager dry-hopped with this year's Pink Boots hop blend. Traditionally Zoigl beers are made by different brewers in the small communities where they originate and a Zoigl sign is hung outside of the person's home who has a fresh Zoigl on tap. Light and crisp yet fruity and pleasantly hopped, please enjoy our take on this historic style.

Broyhan

​4.2% ABV 12 IBUs

Brewers have always been inventive, even back in the first days of commercial brewing. The Broyhan has its origins as the brainchild of an Austrian brewer who wanted to make his own style of beer. Low in alcohol and lightly hopped, this beer is definitely unique to its time and place. Made with 50% barley and 50% heritage wheat from Barton Springs Mill just up the road from our brewery, our Broyhan is light and refreshing. A true wheat beer, this style is very easy to drink on a summer day while sticking to the inventive trailblazing nature of its creator.

Star Party

​5% ABV, 18 IBUs

Back in 2014 Dripping Springs was named the first international Dark Sky community in Texas meaning that our town was perfect for looking at the stars on a clear night. Our beer, Star Party, pays homage to that honor. We took a traditional spicy Belgian Wit beer and heavily dry hopped it with Australian Galaxy hops. There's no better way to spend an evening than looking at the galaxy in the sky while enjoying some Galaxy in your glass. Time to have yourself a Star Party!

Welsh Summer Beer

​4.75% ABV, 25 IBUs

In Welsh the words "Cwrw Haf'' translate to "Summer Beer," and while that may be a mouthful to say, this beer is deceptively easy to drink. Made in the English style with premium English Malt, traditional English yeast, and a variety of hops called Sovereign grown in Wales, our Cwrw Haf would be perfectly suited for a summer evening in the Welsh countryside or a warm afternoon under some Texas live oaks. Iechyd da! (That's Welsh for "Cheers!")

Ethiopian Tella

6.8% ABV 12 IBUs

Tella is a traditional beverage fermented with grains that are native to the Ethiopian region. This Tella is made of Ethiopian teff flour, sorghum flour, maize, millet, barley and honey. Traditionally this beer is bittered with an herb called Gesho which lends a subtle spiciness and earthiness to the beer that hops can't quite match. Please enjoy!

Belgian Enkel

4.4% ABV 21 IBUs

Belgian monasteries have a long and storied brewing tradition with some of the most famous and flavorful Belgian beer styles originating in these Trappist monasteries. Usually the monks would make beer to consume in house or to sell locally. Many of these beers, The Dubbel, Tripel, and Quad are high alcohol, relatively intense beers. Sometimes, however, the monks would brew an Enkel or "single" beer for daily consumption. This lower alcohol table beer is just as flavorful as its heavyweight cousins, but will leave you coherent enough to still get things done during the day.

Please enjoy this rarer beer style and raise a glass to all those hard-working monks!

​Finnish Sahti

4.7% ABV 5 IBUs

Hailing from the dark forests of Finland, Sahti is one of the oldest continuously brewed beer styles in the world. These rustic creations made use of whatever was available on the farm; usually barley, with a supplementation of rye and/or oats. Traditionally Sahti is made without hops, but has a heavy addition of local herbs and plants, in this case Juniper. To make our take on this traditional beer, we layered Juniper branches in the mash tun during the brewing process. Our Sahti had a very short boil, a large addition of juniper berries, and a healthy pitch of a very ester forward yeast. Expect banana, clove, gin, and earthiness from this ancient style of ale.

​South African Pale Ale

5% ABV 34 IBUs

Hops are the heart and soul of pale ales and IPAs. Hop variety can radically change the aroma and flavor of almost any beer, but pale ales allow the ingredient to take center stage. One of the most unique and elusive hop growing regions is in South Africa. AB Inbev bought almost the entirety of the hop crop in South Africa from 2017 on, making those beautiful hops difficult to obtain for craft brewers. Thankfully some small quantities are available for us to play with. This simple pale ale allows the South African hops, African Queen and Southern Star, to shine through. Delicate, fruity, and with a pleasant bite, this beer is a beautiful showcase for these unique hops.

​1st Anniversary Russian Imperial Stout

11.2 % ABV 61 IBUs

In the late 1600s the Russian Emperor, Peter the Great, fell in love with dark English beers during a visit to the UK. Thus was born the style of the Russian Imperial Stout. A strong dark velvety beer was made by UK brewers for transport to the Russian aristocracy. A strong hop presence helps balance the dark fruit, chocolate, and coffee notes of the malt. Our stout was aged on French oak that had previously been soaked in port wine to add an extra layer of fruity complexity. This beer is wonderful to drink right now and will also improve with age in your cellar. We bottled 75 specialty bottles for our anniversary and it's on tap.
