We’re working hard to get to opening day at our new 990 Metropolitan space! There are so many hurdles to jump in the realm of construction and red tape. We had some complications with our boiler chimney that added three months onto our opening timeline. We’re now hoping for an opening in March or April. The new brewery is a new beginning for us — we’ll be able to sell IPA by the case and fresher than ever, and we’ll be able to focus like never before on the barrel aged, blended, heritage style wild ales that we’ve fantasized about for more than a decade.
Style: Dessert Berliner Weisse brewed with apricots, vanilla, and milk sugar
Our often-imitated, never-duplicated dessert berliner gets the apricot treatment. Tart, creamy, and juicy! Open a portal to the brightest stone-fruit timeline.
Icing On The Cake
Style: Imperial Milk Stout with Cacao and Vanilla
ABV: 10% ABV
Icing on The Cake is a luscious dessert stout that tastes like a liquid slice of flourless chocolate cake. Like the best stouts, it improves as it warms from cellar temperature up to room temperature. Even dessert stouts must be in balance, and for us that means the last sip should taste better than the first.
Style: Grisette (or petite saison, take your pick)
Secret Track is a draft only treat that brings old and new world influences together. It is a delicate and funky little crusher produced with a traditional Belgian step mash of wheat and pilsner malt. It is hopped exclusively with Motueka (previously known as B Saaz). We taste traditional farmhouse character of black pepper and juicy fruit, with enticing resinous hop tones of strawberry, lime pith, and sherbet. Not exactly tart, but on the edge of tartness.
STYLE: Dessert Berliner Weisse
The pop! series keeps getting better — Power Pop! is brewed with citra lupulin, azacca hops, vanilla, and milk sugar. Like nothing we’ve tasted before; juicy hops, sweet/tart balance on the palate, cream soda finish.
Style: Imperial Stout with Cacao and Vanilla
Bitterness: medium minus
Even an imperial dessert stout must be balanced! Smooth with rich cocoa and well-hidden alcohol. Let it gradually warm in the glass to really show off this stout’s layered complexity.
