This year we brewed Gatherer with Appalachian allspice, mugwort, honeysuckle, lemon balm, and mint. Like last year, we also added over 100lbs of PA wildflower honey to this Imperial Stout! Dense and devastating, yet peaceful and floral. 11.3%

Trillium Brewing Company

  • PEDDOCKS ISLAND IPA Peddocks Island is the first installment in the Harbor Islands series - brewed with the signature Citra hop. The beer pours orange with enticing haze, and starts tropical with pineapple, mango and a touch of citrus on the nose.

Overall, a Citra saturated beer that showcases the vast array of incredible aromas and flavors that hops bring out. ABV: 6.8%
  • METTLE DOUBLE IPA In the spirit of tenacity and camaraderie, Mettle was first created to highlight the milestone of our inaugural year as a brewery. With the intense dry-hop duo of Amarillo and Citra, this medium-bodied Double IPA beckons with aromatics of pineapple, mango, orange, and a hoppy dankness. A fusion of orange, melon, light pineapple, and a subtle pithiness round out the palate with a smooth, pillowy mouthfeel. We continue to brew Mettle in recognition of our devoted following of hopheads that have supported us from the very beginning.

  • VANILLA TRUFFLE IMPERIAL STOUT BREWED WITH VANILLA BEANS We teamed up with Miami's J. Wakefield Brewing to create another dessert inspired stout!

Vanilla Truffle announces itself with a big aroma of brownie batter and charred marshmallows. The palate provides deep vanilla, pot du crème flavor with subtle notes of toffee and caramel. A full, rich mouthfeel leaves a coating on the glass and lingering, satisfying sweetness. ABV: 12.7%
  • POCKET PIGEON PALE ALE Part of our Small Bird series of seasonal, sessionable pale ales, Pocket Pigeon features malted spelt and a large dosing of Mosaic, Galaxy, and Columbus hops.

Combining our robust, grain-forward Goodwin Hill Gin with citrusy tonic and a touch of lime, this bright refreshing drink can be served over ice wherever your travels take you.

Crooked Stave Artisan Ale Project

  • L'Brett d'Or Surreal Golden Sour Ale aged in Oak Barrels

    Spontaneously fermented in oak barrels, L'Brett d'Or's fermentation is kicked off with the help of the natural wild yeasts and bacteria residing around our coolship and native to our brewery. Since our spontaneous beers can only be brewed during the winter months, individual releases involve blending unique barrels to bring out the best of each brewing season. L'Brett d'Or will continue to age with the best of them, gaining in complexity over the years. ABV: 5.0%
  • Origins Burgundy Sour Ale aged in Oak Barrels

    Origins is our homage to the history of barrel aging and those who have influenced us along the way. Traditionally regarded as the most complex of beers, Flemish Reds and Oud Bruins from the Flanders region of Belgium were known for their tart and vinous characteristics; these attributes eventually gave rise to their designation as the Burgundies of Belgium; Before we carefully select each blend from our barrel cellar, our burgundy sour gracefully ages in large oak foeders, and finally, smaller wine casks. Origins dominant characteristics come from the use of aromatic malts to create dark vinous notes with an acidic tart cherry finish, derived from our mixed culture of wild yeast and bacteria. ABV: 6.5%
  • Silly Cybies Belgian Style Dark Sour Ale aged in Oak Barrels with Raspberries

    Primary fermented in oak foeders with our mixed culture of wild yeast and bacteria, Silly Cybies has an unmistakable Belgian character backed by a strong malt base. For our Harvest 2017 release, we've embraced age-old tradition by conditioning the beer for extended periods of time in oak barrels with a heavy-handed addition of Washington raspberries from our partner farmers in the Pacific Northwest.
    ABV: 8.0%
  • L'Brett d'Apricot Golden Sour Ale aged in Oak Barrels with Colorado Apricots

    We uphold the time-honored traditions used to make spontaneous Belgian lambic through embracing natural fermentation with the microflora native to our brewery. For our Harvest 2017 release, we've selected unique barrels to balance the heavy-handed addition of fresh apricots, expressing the Colorado western slope terroir from which our fruit is sourced, and a quality that reflects the skilled stewardship of our partner farmers. ABV:5.7%

Sante Adairius Rustic Ales

  • West Ashley STYLE: Barrel-aged Saison with Apricot
    ABV: 7.3%
    NOTES: tart, fruity, aromatic, funky
    Orange, lactic, and bursting with apricot aroma, West Ashley is built for consideration and conversation. While Ashley starts as a simple saison, careful aging in Pinot Noir barrels with apricots, our house microbes, and warm encouragement transform her into a tart, complex, and delectable beer. To enjoy all that she offers, we encourage you to rouse the residual yeast, bacteria, and fruit into solution before serving West Ashley in your favorite stemmed glassware.
  • Cask 200 STYLE: American Wild Ale
    ABV: 6.5
    Named after our 660 gallon “oval,” Cask 200 is a celebration of the unexpected and an experiment in variation. Each time we package a portion of its contents, fresh beer is added back to Cask 200 to mix and re-ferment with the aged beer still inside. While this solera-style saison will vary with each bottling, you can expect a delicate malt base supported by funky, yeast-derived flavors and a dry, acidic finish. Sante!

Long, slow aging in stainless tanks coaxes out flavors and aromatics of ripe citrus and just-picked stonefruit. Simple but graceful, Bernice is the beer we’d pour you ourselves if given the chance.
