Key Additions: Simcoe, Amarillo
IBU: 35
ABV: 5.25%
Availability: Seasonal
Configurations: 50L, 1/4 slim

TASTING NOTES: Pint Sized Pale is a lighter, more crushable Pale Ale brewed with Organic 2-row malted barley and a hint of crystal malt and wheat. Hopped with some of our favorite hops like Simcoe and Amarillo, PSP is crisp and refreshing but never boring or bland. Expect a hop strike that leans citrusy balanced with crisp pale malt flavor. At 5.3% ABV, this one is sized to fill a full pint glass while being a bit smaller in stature than his elder (512) Pale Ale brethern. Fact Sheet

(512)Young Funkenstein

Malt Bill: Organic 2-row, pilsner, aromatic, caramunich, wheat
Key Additions: Brett, Pedio, Rainier Cherries
IBU: 8
ABV: 6.5%
Availability: Rare
Configurations: 1/4slim

TASTING NOTES: Young Funkenstein is a cherry sour that started as a clean copper ale fermented in stainless. Finished in thirteen 2nd use Cabernet wine barrels for a total of 24 months with added wild yeast (Brett Bruxellensis) and sour-producing bugs (Pedio), this creation has nice earthy funk and lactic acid sourness. For 10 months, over 200 pounds of dried Rainier cherries lent more sour notes with sweet undertones and a dry finish. Enjoy! Fact Sheet

(512)DECADE – Wet Hop IPA

Malt Bill: Organic 2-Row, Organic Crystal, Organic Wheat
Key Additions: 100# of Idaho 7 Wet hop
IBU:  50
ABV:  5.8%
Availability:  Limited
Configurations: 50L, 1/4 slim

TASTING NOTES: DECADE is our 10th Anniversary release and we really dove into new territory to create a hop focused IPA for the ages! 100 pounds of freshly cut Idaho 7 hops were cut and picked on one day and we brewed with them on the next. This beer is fairly low ABV at 5.8% and dry enough to let those hops shine through as hop flavor like nothing we’ve done. Dry hopped with Simcoe for a wonderful hoppy nose, this beer is a very special labor of love. Thanks for a DECADE of DRAFT and stay tuned for another one starting now! Fact Sheet

(512)CALCULON IPA

Malt Bill:  Organic 2-Row, Organic Crystal, Organic Wheat, Organic Oats
Key Additions: Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo, Rakau
IBU:  50
ABV:  6.5
Availability:  Limited
Configurations: 50L, 1/4 slim

TASTING NOTES: CALCULON IPA was fermented in one of our oldest, most reliable, 60 barrel tanks that carries the same name. Hardly robotic in character, this IPA is built on a grain bill that is 100% ORGANIC and is hopped to express some of our favorites in new ways. Mosiac, Citra, and Rakau, blended at each addition, work together to produce a magical combination of mango, Lemon and lime. Added only at the beginning of the process as the FIRST WORT comes over, late in the boil as a hop BURST, in the whirlpool, and then TRIPLE DRY HOPPED, this beer is hoppy in a unique and delicious way. Enjoy! Fact Sheet

(512)BRUNCH IPA

Malt Bill:  Organic 2-Row, Organic Crystal, Organic Wheat, Organic Oats
Key Additions: Nelson Sauvin, Mandarina Bavaria
IBU:  45
ABV:  5.5
Availability:  Limited
Configurations: 50L, 1/4 slim

TASTING NOTES: (512) BRUNCH IPA is a new creation that conjures up flavors and aromas of that infamous brunch delight, the mimosa. It’s light enough for late morning consumption, but clearly designed for IPA lovers with loads of hops. Built on a sturdy backbone of ORGANIC two row barley, this dry IPA showcases two very special hops, Nelson Sauvin and Mandarina Bavaris. The former kicks off white wine-like qualities while the latter yields nice tangerine flavors and aromas. When these two combine, we think you’ll find the result is a perfect match to your favorite meal of the week. Fact Sheet

(512)Burst IPA

Malt Bill:  Organic 2-Row, Crystal, Wheat
Key Additions: Amarillo, Simcoe, Citra, Eukanot
IBU:  45
ABV:  5.7
Availability:  Limited
Configurations: 50L, 1/4 slim

TASTING NOTES: (512) BURST IPA, our latest IPA creation, uses a new technique designed to maximize hop character. Unlike traditional hop additions, where bittering is achieved by boiling hops for an extended period, all the hop bitterness, aroma and flavor for this one is achieved by holding back the hop additions until late in the boil. The Result? A BURST of hops unlike anything we’ve done before. Hop varieties include some of our citrusy favorites like Simcoe, Amarillo and Citra and a new hop to us, Eukanot, which adds some tropical fruitiness too. Enjoy! Fact Sheet

(512)Juicy IPA

Malt Bill:  Organic 2-Row, Crystal, Wheat
Key Additions: Bravo, Galaxy, Citra, Mosaic
IBU:  50
ABV:  6
Availability:  Seasonal
Configurations: 50L, 1/4 slim

TASTING NOTES: Owen pulled out all the stops and designed another amazing IPA, carefully combining Bravo, Galaxy, Citra, Mosaic plus a couple of organic New Zealand hops to form a citrus juice and fruit explosion like nothing we’ve ever done! Organic 2-row and a touch of crystal malt provide a light, but sturdy, backdrop for the flavors and aromas of orange, tangerine, vanilla, clean crushed citrus, stone fruit and passionfruit. It’s still clearly an IPA with a smooth and pleasant hop bitterness that cuts the malt and hop sweetness just enough to keep you wanting more. JUICY is hazy from hops with a round mouthfeel but crisp finish. Fact Sheet

(512)LARRY the IPA

Malt Bill: Organic 2-row, Crystal, Wheat
Key Additions: Loral, Simcoe, Cascade, Citra
IBU: 45
ABV: 5.6%
Availability: ???
Configurations: 50L, 1/4slim

TASTING NOTES: Larry the IPA was created in homage to a longtime friend and contributor to our success. Larry (the man) is more than just a contractor, he’s part of the team and part of the family. Yes, like any smart friend of the brewery, he shows up to drink beer with us often, but he also shows up to work events without being asked and will lend a hand no matter the task. He’s from that generation of people who help when they see the chance. Larry was one of our first “converts” from American light lager to IPA, so it only seems fitting to name our newest creation after one of our IPA’s biggest fans and one of our dearest friends. Take a moment to meet Larry.  With loads of character and a fruity, citrusy hop punch that stands solidly on a gentle malt foundation, Larry the IPA is both sturdy and light, refreshing and satisfyingly hoppy.  Hops: Loral, Simcoe, Cascade & Citra… Fact Sheet
