Germantown Pils

German Pilsner Ale, 5.2% abv

Notes: Floral hop bouquet, graham cracker, sweet malt, smooth finish

Our second installment of the “Alternative Facts Series” is a German Pilsner brewed with ale yeast. Keeping that in mind, we used a few tricks to mimic lager fermentation and then lagered this beer for over 3 weeks. Crisp, semi-dry and easy to drink in hot weather.

Stanley Cupric

American Copper Ale, 6.0%

Notes: Resin & dank on the nose, fruity hop finish – dragonfruit, papaya; touch of toasted malt

Our copper ale is a cross between a Pale Ale, Amber Ale and IPA. It almost comes across as a younger cousin of the Overt Hops Double IPA in its character. Two hops were used in this beer: Ahtanum & Equinox/Ekuanot. It is named after the great film director, Stanley Kubrick with a slight nod to our brewer’s background in Chemistry (“cupric” is the Latin term for the highest oxidation state of copper).

Wit Or Witout

Belgian Wit, 4.8% abv

Notes: Orange, coriander, grainy, creamy, slight tartness on the finish

Our first batch of Witbier is dedicated to the endless patience of our brewer’s wife. Her favorite beer genre is wheat beer and Wit is a great warm weather option. Named after the infamous question in  Philadelphia – when you order a cheesesteak you’ll be asked “Wit or Witout?”.

Mild Night

Notes of chocolate, nuttiness, caramel and earthiness round out this true session ale.  Great body from a low abv beer

Austria-Thirsty Vienna Amber Ale

Our first from the “Alternative Facts Series” of beers; an ale version of a Vienna Lager. This beer is light in body and highly drinkable. Vienna style beer is rich in toasty malt without being heavy or too sweet. A low bitterness is just enough to support the malt. Austria-Thirsty finishes on the dry side with floral hops refreshing the palate. 5.7% ABV

Overt Hops Double IPA

Made with 6 pounds of hops per barrel (1 pound per 5 gallons), this double IPA showcases an array of hop character – Pine, resin, grapefruit, orange and tangerine all pop through. The malt is rich with toasted bread flavors. While bitterness is high, it is clean and does not linger.  Dedicated to Brewer Mike’s home-brew club, the Covert Hops Society.  8.6% ABV

11th Hour APA

11th Hour APA, 6.0%

This American Pale Ale was our head brewer’s flagship beer as a homebrewer. Light toasty malt backs a bright hop character full of tangerine, mango and pineapple with hints of grapefruit. Is it juicy? Yes, yes it is.

High Grade ESB

High End ESB, 5.2%

This British-style pale ale is incredibly drinkable while showcasing earthy and floral hops in the aroma. The finish is moderately bitter and balanced with biscuit and cracker-type malt flavors and rich caramel throughout.
