Beers Pinthouse Burnet

International Beer Competition Gold Medal, 2014 GABF Bronze Medal, 2014 L.A.

Upcoming Beer Releases

This is Juice! IPA – 7.0% ABV

Some have asked, “WTF is Juice?” The Burnet brew crew has the answer with this brand new brew, the This Is Juice IPA! This hazy IPA brewed with Azacca hops, Citra Lupulin Powder, and Equinot Lupulin Powder, showcases passion fruit, citrus, and dank notes coupled with a soft mouthfeel. Who is ready to start juicing?!

Tap Date: June 30, 11:00 am

ATX Pale Ale – 6% ABV

ATX Pale Ale is our new-school American style pale ale brewed with Calypso and Mosaic 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, red berries 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 while finishing dry and sticky.

Tap Date: July 7, 11:00 am

Lupulin Wizard IIPA – 8.4% ABV

An Imperial IPA we brewed with some serious sorcery to truly showcase our love of hops. Using a new triple threat whirl-pooling technique this may be our juiciest, fruitiest, aromatic beer yet. The Lupulin Wizard has enough malt to barely balance out the hop load of this beer, it lets the big notes of stone fruitiness, cattiness, grapefruit and juicy citrus really shine. This Double IPA is brewed with Mosaic, Simcoe, El Dorado, and Citra hops at over 11 pounds per barrel! Behold the wizardry and enjoy!

Tap Date: July 7, 11:00 am

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, West Coast influenced 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!


Calma Muerta

ABV: 4.8%

As refreshing as a dip in Barton Springs on a summer day here in Austin, TX, this Session Ale has big hop aromas and flavors of lemon, berries, tropical citrus and a light malt backbone to balance it all out. Assertively hopped at 3lbs/bbl with Meridian, Cascade, and Equinox hops, Calma Muerta is a display of balance and drinkability that provides refreshment to all those seeking a quaffable pint of a straw yellow elixir.


Iron Genny

ABV: 5.3%

Need a little wind here... No wind, no problem, that's what the Iron Genny is for. This Pale Ale, the workhorse of the brewery, a beer that never leaves you stranded, Iron Genny, is brewed with 4lbs/bbl of American "C-hops"... you know those beautifully flavorful and aromatic Centennial, Cascade, and Chinook hops for big aromas and flavors of orange, citrus, and grapefruit throughout the beer. So grab a pint and "Quit playing with your dinghy!"


Bearded Seal

ABV: 6.1%

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: 6.1%

Everything you read about 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

Barrel Aged Series

The Pinthouse - Barrel Aged Series features small batch releases aged in bourbon barrels, rum barrels, or wine barrels, imparting flavors from both the root spirit as well as the wood oils. The Barrel Aged Series tends to produce some of the biggest, boldest, and most complex beers in the Pinthouse lineup. If you are interested in trying a Pinthouse Barrel Aged Series beer (you should be!), look for them on our Tap Schedule, or wander over to our Live Tap Feed to see what we currently have on tap.

Firkin Taps

Taps every Tuesday @ 5 PM - Firkins are cask conditioned beers that are allowed to naturally carbonate in the cask, rather then being force carbonated in a keg or serving tank. Cask conditioned beers typically are served at room temperature, rather than chilled. Although the Pinthouse - Firkin Taps are technically pins (5.4 gallons, or roughly half a firkin), it is way more fun to say Firkin! Our Firkin Taps roll out every Tuesday at 5 PM and typically are conditioned with spices, fruits, herbs, hops, or other ingredients that impart unique flavors and character to the beer. The Firkin Taps usually don't last past Tuesday night, but you can check out our Tap Schedule to see what we are rolling out over the next few weeks in the Firkin Taps Series.
