Based on the US Navy material condition of readiness, which determines which fittings are to be closed on a naval vessel. Condition Dog Zebra is the most secure condition, where all airtight, watertight, fire tight, and fume tight fittings are secured.

Tropic Thunder is brewed with an abundance of oats and wheat for an insanely smooth mouthfeel. This aggressively hopped tropical IPA gives off strong flavors of pineapple and other tropical fruits. We’re very pleased with the result.
Bourbon Barrel Aged Bold Jack

Score: 4.25
This medium bodied orange colored ale was brewed with pumpkin added to the mash then finished with fall-like aromas of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. We then added it into A. Smith Bowman bourbon whiskey barrels; where it sat very patiently. Barrel Aged Bold Jack is the perfect after dinner Thanksgiving beer.
Bold Dominion

For lovers of all things Bold! For those new to craft beer this is a great stepping-stone on your way to becoming a local craft beer connoisseur. We use Cascade hops to give Bold Dominion a citrus aroma. It is a hop-forward ale but it is well balanced and does not come across as bitter as an IPA. CHEERS TO THE BOLD!
Red Maiden
Style: Red Ale - American Amber / Red
ABV: 6.0%
IBUs: 28
# Ratings: 995
Score: 3.59
Red Maiden was the first beer brewed at Bold Mariner. It is named to commemorate our maiden voyage. We use real Irish Ale yeast and caramunich malt, which gives it hints of caramel. We chose a figurehead to represent Red Maiden; a ship's figurehead is the carved wooden figure traditionally mounted on the prow of early sailing ships. It gave a unique character and was believed to soothe the sea gods and ensure a safe voyage.
Liberty Risk
Style: IPA - Imperial / Double
ABV: 9.0%
IBUs: 90
# Ratings: 551
Score: 3.75
Liberty is free time away from the ship when you pull into a port. Liberty Risk is a term used for a Sailor who loves liberty a little too much. These Sailors have been deemed unreliable and will more likely than not end up in trouble once allowed of the ship. Liberty Risk is a pronounced and distinctive hop forward DIPA that boasts ample citrus and tropical fruit characteristics balanced atop a smooth malt bill.
Monkey's Fist
Style: Hefeweizen
ABV: 4.9%
IBUs: 10
# Ratings: 384
Score: 3.62
A twist on the Hefeweizen style wheat beer. Distinguished by its light body and flavored with hints of bananas and clove, then followed by coconut throughout. Named for an ancient nautical knot used by sailors and mariners, the Monkey's Fist was used to propel a ship's tie down lines to a dock or bring two neighboring ships together. The knot at the end of the rope served as a weight making it easier to throw.

Drifting in the moonlight across an endless expanse or blue brave hearts and fearless men find Bold Jack following too. A medium bodied orange colored ale brewed with pumpkin added to the mash then finished with autumn aromas of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice.

Nighthawk flies in low and under the radar. Our winter Saison pours deep black with a cream colored head followed by fruity, spicy, and peppery aromas; chocolate and roasted flavors throughout. A perfect beer for that late night debrief and most definitely better than that old keg of light beer in your ready room.

India Red Ale

# Ratings: 94
Score: 3.60
The first IPA was brewed by the British in order to solve the problem of beer spoiling on its voyage to India to supply British troops. The high alcohol and hop content prevented the beer from going bad and the added vitamins fought off scurvy in the men. Since then many variations have been created. An India Red Ale is an American red ale brewed at a higher strength and hopped like an IPA. Typically redder in color than an IPA, with deep ruby hues. Bold Mariner India Red Ale is a red ale with firm maltiness and bursting with tropical fruit flavors from the El Dorado hops rounded out by notes of caramel, toffee and biscuit. Brewed for those who are in it for the long haul.
