Three New Beers From Off Color

Now in stock…

Off Color Blueberries Feel Pain
Yeast is pretty magical. So imagine carefully harvesting yeast from the delicate skins of blueberries found on a small farm down the road from Virtue Farm. And then using it to create a wild ale. This new seasonal, dubbed Blueberries Feel Pain, was brewed a few days ago and, so far, the yeast is quite happy.

Off Color Le Woof
Inspired by our brewery puppy, Hops, Biere de Guard Dog seems sweet enough will a strong malt presence lead by Munich and Vienna malts. But at 7.3% ABV, it packs a bite. Just ask our delivery guy!

Off Color Waddle
A fest beer to celebrate the wedding of one of our favorite twenty employees! Brewed in the classic style of an Oktoberfest lager, except if you see it after October, then it is a Marzen.

Boulevard Love Child No 9

Now in stock…

Boulevard’s Love Child Series of wild ales are barrel-aged with such boisterous cultures as Lactobacillus and Brettanomyces. These wayward offspring can prove so complex that we employ gauges on the label to convey the intensity of three key personality traits, Funk, Sour and Fruit, presenting a picture of the blend at the time it was released. This beer will change as it ages, but don’t we all?

Limited Releases from Ommegang, Boulevard, and Rogue

Ommegang Queen of the Seven Kingdoms
A beer for Cersei- who reminds us that everyone who isn’t us is an enemy. An exquisite blend of sour ale and Belgian-style blonde ale.

Boulevard Changeling
Changeling is an enchanting blend of dark sour ales aged in whiskey and wine barrels that were inoculated with Brettanomyces and lactobacillus. It pours a deep ruby color with touches of gold at the edges of the glass. Leading with plum and toasty malt, the flavor transmutes into a soft tartness, with notes of earthy, funky Brett and a touch of lingering caramel to create a delicate balance.

Rogue Dead ‘n Dead Aged in Whiskey Barrels
Aged in Dead Guy Whiskey Barrels, Dead N’ Dead is the evolution of Dead Guy Ale. The barrels enhance the robust malt and hop profiles of original Dead Guy Ale. The ale soaks in hints of oak and whiskey while maturing over several months at the Rogue ocean aging room.
