What's On Tap
Tequila Barrel Aged Mole Stout – 9.0% ABV / 50 IBU
This unique variation of our Mexican Chocolate Stout is a hearty, bold, cacao-forward beer that is richly flavored with dried ancho and smoky pasilla peppers, clove and cinnamon spice, toasted almond, and earthy black pepper. The spice level is notable but not overpowering, with a backbone of mildheat. Vegetal notes from aging in tequila barrels display aromas of eucalyptus and pink peppercorns. The finish is long and complex, with a lingering warmth that stays with you. The spice and mild heat from the peppers add a depth of flavor that is balanced by the sweetness of the chocolate and the bitterness of the roasted malts. The tequila barrels add a touch of vegetal complexity that rounds out the flavor profile.
pFriem Lager – 5% ABV / 20 IBU
When the golden and clean lagers of Plzeň (Bohemia) became all the rage in the mid-1800’s, München brewers feared that Germans would start drinking the Czech beer in place of their own. Munich Helles Lager was their answer to meet the demand. A bit maltier, they often share the same spicy hop characters of Czech Pils, but are a bit more subdued and in balance with the malts. Helles is German for bright.
Helles is a medium-bodied beer, it is straw to golden blonde, very clean, bready, malt forward with floral hop aromas and a touch of bitterness. The best have a slightly sulfurous character reminiscent of brewery fermentation rooms. In Bavaria, many consider Helles the very essence of the summer beer garden. These beers drink well with many occasions and in large volumes.
