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. 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 rare beer style and raise a glass to all those hard-working monks!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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! 30 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!")
