Our American-style amber ale has a medium malt backbone, the use of two different Caramel malts gives us a decent amount of caramel character. We use American-variety hops to achieve a medium bitterness, flavor and aroma to balance the malt. The Fuggle hop adds a bit of fruity and herby detail to this brew. Enough talk, let’s get Hog Wild!

Our Blonde Ale is a light bodied, easy drinking brew. Mildly hopped for a slight citrus taste and a low bitterness. With it being one of the most approachable styles, our blonde ale is not only visually appealing, but extremely refreshing. Rounded and smooth, it is an American classic known for its simplicity. Named after the animal that made this all possible.

There is a god in Irish mythology that goes by the name of Dagda. He is associated with fertility, agriculture, manliness and strength, as well as magic, druidry and wisdom. He is said to have control over life and death, the weather and crops, as well as time and the seasons. His staff is said to have the power of life and death much like this classic Irish Red Ale. Made with British malts and hops you won't find anything closer to the original in the Americas.

When he gets home from a long day of work he kicks off his shoes, hangs up his many hats, and cracks a nice Piney Resinous IPA to relax. Of course we had to make him one, and here it is.
