Mainstays Pinthouse Burnet
It could be argued that our brewers are more than just a little obsessed with hops... This obsession led to the creation of our flagship IPA, Man O' War, an aggressively dry-hopped IPA with a huge hop display of tropical citrus, grapefruit, and resinous pine. A brew for those who truly love and appreciate all of the goodness that comes from those delicious little green cones. Is it excessive to use over 5lbs/bbl of Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic, and Azacca in each batch of Man O' War? We don't think so!
Winner of a Gold Medal at the 2017 Great American Beer Festival (GABF), our Bearded Seal is 'must have' at our brewpub. Our director of brewing was the only person in his class at an Irish Catholic School growing up that had no Irish heritage in his bloodline. Despite that fact, St. Patrick's Day is still one of his favorite holidays. He loves jet black pints topped with creamy white heads, and gets a bit surly when people say stouts are only for cold weather. This Dry Irish Stout is a little bolder than the commercial example most people are familiar with and is filled with aromas and flavors of roasted coffee and dark chocolate balanced with a nice dry finish.
Our director of brewing, like so many other brewers, started his journey into craft beer as a homebrewer over 10 years ago, and one of the first beers he ever brewed on his stove was an Extra Special Bitter inspired by some of England's finest examples. In constructing the recipe for our Old Beluga Amber Ale he looked back on his notes from that first ESB he ever brewed, realized it probably wasn't as great of a beer as he thought it was at the time, and worked on a recipe that blended elements of the English-Style ESB with those of an American Amber. The result is a delightfully complex, malt-forward Amber Ale filled with aromas and flavors of cherry, nuttiness, and an earthy-herbal hop profile to balance it all out.
Everything you read about our Gold Medal-winning Bearded Seal in the paragraph right above this one is true for this beer as well... Our Brewmaster isn't Irish... at all, stouts are good in all weather, and jet black pints with creamy white heads are sexy... and Dry Irish Stouts on nitro taste really really good. So, we offer up a version of our Bearded Seal on Nitro as well! All the delicious flavors of roasted coffee and dark chocolate remain the same while the nitrogenation adds a smooth creamy mouthfeel to this stout.
