Strawn is built on a straw-hued malt body, fluffy and sweet. 4 hop varieties weren’t enough, so we added Nelson Sauvin for an overwhelming bouquet of tropical juiciness. Additionally, the hop bill consists of Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo, and Australian Enigma – which fuse for refreshing citrus notes of candied orange, raspberry Jamba juice, and fresh Caribbean breeze. To us, Strawn denotes the hue of this beer: ‘of the straw’.
Beer Style:Double IPA
Cryo from the Greek word “krýos” means icy cold. Cryo-hops are made by combining liquid nitrogen and hops, creating a more robust hop aroma and taste. We combined cryo-hops and traditional pilsner brewing to make FORM, our finest and newest small-batch German Pilsner. Formed upon Pilsen malt and bolstered by Vienna, the crisp malt presence is sessionable and light, with a touch of honey malt to reform your perception of a Pilsner. True to style of a Franconian Keller Pils, we lagered this beer and left it unfiltered, the ideal environment for our final act: a dose of dry-hopping with Simcoe cryo-hops. Aromatics are bright and floral, melding with flavors of golden dandelion and woodsy pine. FORM is where tradition combines with hyper-fresh.

NectarBerry is our collaborative Nordic ale imagined and created with Chef Patrick Feury from Nectar. A refreshingly light malt base lays the foundation for the tart sensation of freshly crushed lingonberries. If you’ve never experienced lingonberries, expect a balanced blend of cranberry pucker, raspberry sweetness, and a unique finish akin to pomegranate. Lastly, the batch was garnished with a touch of sage, which is present in the aroma.

Lifestyle Blogger is our first ever Brut IPA. This style recently emerged as the West Coast’s response to the hazy and residually sweet malt body found in New England IPA’s. In the wine vernacular, brut denotes dryness, so we fermented this juice-bomb down to its bare bones with few residual sugars left behind.. The result is an effervescent IPA with a clean and crisp malt presence that pops like champagne across your palate. A curated blend of Citra, Simcoe, Azacca, and El Dorado hops finish with bright notes of summertime melon, Meyer Lemon, soft citrus, and vanilla mint leaves.

We used 100% local malt from Deer Creek in Glen Mills, their select Colonial Pilsner for a base with a dash of lightly toasted oat malt and twilight wheat malt. This base creates the perfect body for delicate flavor additions later in the brew, starting with peach-forward hops like Simcoe and Azacca, with some fruit-bouquet additions of Citra and El Dorado. Lastly, we added a splash of organic Peach White Tea before serving this beer in a pitcher with ice cubes jingling against the glass.

There’s something strong in the atmosphere here, hops on top of hops that reek that dank resin. Marris Otter malt provides the safe box for your hop stash; in Calisphere we’re talking those classic American strains, “C-hops” as we like to say: Citra, Cascade, Centennial, as well as Amarillo and Azacca. Welcome to Cali, man!
A hoppy farmhouse ale that adheres to the traditional witbier style: a silky base of wheat malt with a touch of orange peel and coriander added to the boil. We exclusively used the Pacific Jade hop for a new twist on tradition. This New Zealand hop brings bright notes of citrus and light spice.

As complex as the play, this light and frothy New England style IPA grew more and more bewildering and was brewed four times before getting it right.

Remember when you got a boo-boo as a kid, and after you got a band-aid, your parents gave you a big glass of milk with some Oreos on the side just begging to be dunked. Well this is it in beer form. “Oreo Scenario” is a chocolate milk stout brewed with double-stuff Oreos. Oh, and if you’re a mint-chocolate-chip fan, we doubled-down and brewed another version of this beer with fresh peppermint, simply called “Mint Oreo Scenario”.

Roald Dahl documented the journey of James and the Giant Peach, which magically grew to the size of a house, only to snap from the incapable branch and roll to the sea.

How far will our brewers venture to use a new ingredient in a unique beer? This time, not too far.

Golden beets radiate sweet and earthy notes, without the harsh acidity of red beets. Expect a touch of nuttiness in this crisp saison, and you’ve met your veggie quota for the day!

We love fruit, and we’re not afraid to admit it. Fruit Fetish is a Tart Fruit Ale reminiscent of an Italian soda with sweet cherry, cranberry, soursop, and tangerine puree added after fermentation. The kettle souring process that we use calls for an extra curricular fermentation to take place in the brew kettle prior to brew day, where lactose is added, lending a soft biscuity mouth feel and a slightly tart finish to this spritzy gem.
