It’s #FlagshipFebruary so why don’t we start by talking about our OG flagship that basically built this place we call #GriffinClaw . Brewmaster Dan Rogers originally brewed this bright Midwest Coast style IPA back in 2010 on a small brewpub system. Norm’s Raggedy Ass was a pub favorite and on a whim he sent it off to the World Beer Cup where they decided it was the best IPA in the world. It’s still our flagship to this day, brewed with loads of Centennial, Cascade, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops giving notes of pine, grapefruit, citrus, and stone fruit. While we will always brew up fun new beers, it’s always good to go back to our roots and appreciate the flagships that stand the test of time. #normsraggedyass #griffinclawbrewing #craftbeer #michiganbeer

We’ve got warmer weather on the mind and El Ligero in the tanks! This clean and crisp Mexican lager is fermenting away with fresh lime for the ultimate refreshing flavor, coming back soon to usher away the frigid Michigan temps.

We had to beg Dan to make this and it turned out awesome! Rich, dark, and velvety smooth, we added hints of coconut and vanilla to our milk stout to remind you of the tropical vacation you forgot to take this year. Guaranteed to cure what ails you!

This imperial stout was artfully aged for 9 months in bourbon barrels with organic coffee beans from the Las Lajas farm of Don Oscar and Dona Francisca Chacon in the Central Valley of Costa Rica. We then blend with Brew Master Dan Rogers’ secret mole recipe blend of rich Mexican chocolate, spices, and chili padi hot peppers. Rica y picante.

ABV: 12.0%
# Ratings: 1

We brew the base beer of our award-winning Oblivious Wheat Wine and blend it with our big bold Russian Imperial Stout together with nutmeg, allspice, clove, and cinnamon. We then let it all duke it out in freshly emptied bourbon barrels for an entire year. The victor of this long fermented skirmish becomes the Dark Passenger, or what we enjoy as Flying Buffalo Spiced Strong Ale.

Score: 4.25
Our Russian Imperial Stout is transferred to freshly emptied bourbon barrels immediately upon fermentation where it rests for about 9 months in our climate controlled “Barrel Bunker”. This beer remains under strict supervision of our Brewmaster, Dan Rogers, as it endures controlled temperature fluctuations in a painstaking process unique to Griffin Claw Brewing Company. Aging is complete and packaging begins at the peak of our barrel aging process, when Flying Buffalo is collectively determined to be ready for release in limited supply.

A traditional tripel with a Michigan cherry twist. It starts as expected, has a simple spicey middle; finishing off with a slightly tart bite. The nose carries a slight spice with a subtle fruitiness. A nice lighter golden body to look at, like a sunny day riding your bicycle in the Belgian countryside.
