Beers Pinthouse Burnet

About Our Beer

We like hops here at Pinthouse Pizza... some may say we are a bit obssesed with them, but we also like balance and drinkability and, we work tirelessly to create innovative beers of all styles that showcase the highest quality ingredients that we source for them. Whether it is our award-winning Fully Adrift Double IPA (2014 Alpha King Runner Up and 2015 L.A. International Beer Competition Silver Medal), our delectably bold Bearded Seal Dry Irish Stout (2017 GABF Gold Medal), elusive Jaguar Shark Barrel Aged Stout (2015 L.A. International Beer Competition Gold Medal, 2014 GABF Bronze Medal, 2014 L.A. International Beer Competition Bronze Medal) or our next Pilot IPA offering, we brew every beer to be delicious, drinkable and to pair well with 6 more! Check out our tap schedule for upcoming beer releases, read about our Brew Team, or learn about our beers below…

Mainstays Pinthouse Burnet

Man O’ War

ABV: 6.5%

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 influenced by the Colorado style 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, El Dorado, and Chinook in each batch of Man O' War? We don't think so!


Bearded Seal

ABV: 5.5%

Winner of a Gold Medal at the 2017 Great American Beer Festival (GABF), our Bearded Seal is 'must have' at our brewpub. Our brewmaster 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.


Old Beluga

ABV: 5.8%

Our brewmaster, 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.


Nitro Seal

ABV: 5.5%

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.

“You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.” – Frank Zappa

Seasonals

ATX

Pale Ale

ABV: 5.5%   Available: Spring / Summer

ATX Pale Ale is our new-school American style pale ale brewed with Mosaic, Simcoe and Amarillo hops and a light body. This style of pale ale focuses on the flavor and aroma of the hop and finishes with a light balanced bitterness. Intense aromas of dank tropical fruit, peaches, stone fruit, and ripe pineapple notes are present throughout the flavor. The immense hop oil from the 4.5lbs/bbl used leave a delicious resinous hop oil character throughout the palate with a crisp finish.


Fully Adrift

Double IPA

ABV: 10.5%   Available: Fall / Winter

2014 Alpha King runner up and Silver Medal at the 2015 LA International Beer Competition for the Double IPA Category! This is a dangerously drinkable combination of Dank, tropical, and resinous hops… and more hops.


Best Coast

IPA

ABV: 7.5%   Available: Summer / Fall

A beer inspired by the West Coast Style of IPA. Best Coast is a hop-forward IPA with an assertive bitterness from Simcoe Lupulin Powder, Amarillo and Citra hops, and getting double dry hopped with Lupulin Powder. The result is a delicious pale golden IPA filled with notes of pine, citrus, and dank balanced hops!


Jaguar Shark

Bourbon Barrel Aged, Imperial Dry Irish Stout

ABV: 10.7%   Available: Fall / Winter

The Jaguar Shark starts out life as The Admiral – Imperial Dry Irish Stout but is quickly sequestered into bourbon barrels for aging, yielding an amazingly complex beer. Features: a hint of bourbon on the nose, a little heat from the higher ABV, and the coffee and chocolate components from The Admiral combined with subtle hints of oak and vanilla for the barrels.


Nitro Shark

Bourbon Barrel Aged, Imperial Dry Irish Stout

ABV: 10.7%   Available: Fall / Winter

We set aside a little of each batch of the Jaguar Shark to nitrogenate, producing a beer with a thick and creamy mouth feel yet all of the bite and complexity of the Jaguar Shark. Delicious!


Burro’s Breakfast

Mexican Lager

ABV: 5.6%   Available: Summer

A craft Mexican Lager calling on the tradition of German influenced Mexican brewing, Burro’s Breakfast adds an American craft twist, producing a refreshing lager with just a bit more punch at 5.6% ABV. Features: the characteristic corn sweetness in the nose, a light but full body, and a tart dry finish with just a touch of sweetness and a soft balanced bitterness.  And, we’re stoked to announce that Burro’s Breakfast qualifies as a low-gluten beer!


Blind Jake

Porter

ABV: 6.5%   Available: Fall / Winter

Winner of a Bronze medal at the 2013 Great American Beer Festival (GABF), Blind Jake is a beautiful cross between a robust and brown porter.

True story: Blind Jake was named after a bootlegger from the prohibition era that sold illegal hooch to a speakeasy owned by the grandfather of two of the owners of Pinthouse Pizza.


Sw’Elsinore

Canadian Lager

ABV: 5.9%   Available: Fall

A craft Canadian Lager, Sw’Elsinore pairs well with the start of hockey season, Fall afternoons on the patio with a growler, and sharing a hand tossed pepperoni pie with friends at Pinthouse Pizza. Features: brewed with a mix of North American 6-row and 2-row barley along with rice to keep the body light and refreshing.


The Dude

White Russian Imperial Milk Stout

ABV: 10.7%   Available: Winter
