A good mixture of chocolate and coconut, with each flavor still pronounced and noticeable. With a smooth mouthfeel, this porter has a more dominant presence than our vanilla.

Hello, winter. Not too much, not too little, this beer is the Goldilocks of vanilla porter. With an understated flavor, and a creamy mouthfeel, this is as easy-drinking of a porter as you can get.

An easy-drinking pint, malty and sweet with an initial soft toffee/caramel sweetness, a slightly grainy/biscuity palate, and a touch of roasted dryness in the finish.

A fairly strong, highly roasted, bitter, hoppy dark stout with the body and dark flavors of coffee and tobacco.

Session Ale
Style: IPA - Session / India Session Ale
ABV: 3.4%
IBUs: 52
# Ratings: 180
Score: 3.40
A true session ale but big on body. The malt bill is a nice balance between base and specialty grains to give you a more complex small beer. The hops are plentiful but not harsh. Enjoy several of these a session ales without being weighed down.
Cream Ale
Style: Cream Ale
ABV: 5.0%
IBUs: 24
# Ratings: 173
Score: 3.53
A clean, well attenuated, flavorful American "lawnmower" beer. Easily drinkable and refreshing, with more character than typical American lagers.
