Also known as the “Champagne of the North”, Berliner Weisse is a very pale, refreshing, low-alcohol German wheat beer with a clean lactic sourness, very high carbonation, and a light bread dough malt flavor to support the sourness.
More malt flavor and a bit more fruitiness than American Lager. Very similar to Kolsch, but often with a corny adjunct character. Clean, well-attenuated, flavorful and easy drinking American “lawnmower” beer.
Stormin’ the Castle Scotch Ale. Brewed in memory of Deb Kesler’s brother Scott Lawrence, this beer has a strong copper color, the aroma and flavor are bursting with burnt caramel, sugary toffee candy, and dried fruits like dates and raisins, balanced by alcohol warmth more than hop bitterness.
Inspired by British Brown Ales, this is a deep ruby to dark brown ale that features more assertive hopping and dark grain character than its ancestors. A classic example of how American brewers took styles from Europe, put them on steroids, and released them to our hop-loving public.
