4.7% ABV 18 IBU
Fayuca Rizing Xtra Pale Ale
Brewed collaboration with and specifically for local Phoenix band Fayuca! Somewhere between an IPA and a Pale ale is where this crushable, concert thirst quencher finds its home. The aroma is bright and clean with grapefruit and melon notes as well as a subtle hint of pine and spice. The initial flavor shows a soft caramel sweetness up front with a smooth transition to a pleasant citrus bitterness on the back end and finishes cleanly.
6.3% ABV 60 IBU
Not your typical fruit beer! Subtle hint of blackberry on the nose and a nice, clean body. The flavor of the fruit is both softly sweet yet refreshingly tart. Versatile enough for any crowd!
4.9% ABV 15 IBU
American Pale Ale
Clean Pale Ale with a strong hop presence from classic American hops. A simple malt bill and hop profile blended to create this underappreciated style.
5.5% ABV 50 IBU
Not Granny's Amber. Hints of grapefruit from the hops and sweet caramel from the malt entice your nose. The flavor has notes of caramel and toffee followed seemlessly by pleasantly intense bitterness with hints of citrus.
5.8% ABV 70 IBU
Notes of sweet caramel and pine on the nose offer a great preview of what's to come. The classic American hops compliment the subtley sweet yet pleasantly dry flavors from the Cara malts. A true to style classic, old-school American IPA.
6.5% ABV 75 IBU
A beautiful dark and flavorful beer that is sure to please your senses without filling you up. Notes of burnt caramel, coffee and dark chocolate hit the nose from the special blend of malts in this brew. Complex and subtly, yet pleasantly bitter, this Robust Porter finishes dry and clean leaving you ready for another - any time of year!
5.8% ABV 40 IBU
“Chupacabra Logga” Peppercorn Pilsner
Brewed as an homage to the legendary Chupacabra. This German style Pilsner was brewed to be slightly higher alcohol (because, let’s be honest, a beast like that isn’t drinking some low ABV sh*t!). We added some black peppercorns to the mix on the back end to add just a little something extra to pair with your tasty goat. The aroma is minimal and clean with a slight hint of grain. The flavor starts with a true to pilsner crispness that’s pleasantly and subtly bitter. The peppercorn notes sneak up on you like a Chupacabra in the night, hunting its prey. It is not spicy or hot but actually lends an earthy and hop like subtle yet lingering bitterness to the finish that stays softly with you well after you finish the beer to help balance out the traditional subtle sweetness. This brew is easy to crush and pairs well with food!
6.0% ABV 35 IBU
Kohi Imperial Coffee Stout
Brewed with 1.5 lbs/bbl of locally roasted Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Coffee Beans. The aroma is rich and deep with chocolate notes followed by the roasted coffee on the back end. The initial flavor is big with dark roasted coffee transitioning smoothly into a refreshingly floral flavor. The Yirgacheffe bean is known for its natural citrus notes of lemon (a common additive to traditional espresso!) which help keep this big, bold brew inspiritingly bright and not too heavy! Brewed with the help of local Veterans, 10% of all proceeds go to the Semper Fi Fund to help our Veterans!
11.2% ABV 65 IBU
Ah, the famous Pamplemousse. A gentle beast that roams the woods…. Wait, that’s not right.. it’s a Grapefruit! Inspired by a certain someone’s love of Pamplemousse sparkling water, this beer is designed to be light, easy to drink and have a fresh note of grapefruit. Brewed with Grapefruit peel, not juice, this beer has a subtle aroma of citrus, reminiscent of when you first start peeling the grapefruit. That mist of citrus oil and fresh fruit are also the notes you will get when taking the first sip. Fresh, not sweet, a slight hint of bitter from the pith and a clean finish will surely have you reaching for another pint or two of this tasty treat (plus, it’s fun to order… “Pamplemousse Pale Please!”)!
5.1% ABV 20 IBU
Summa Crusha Session IPA
This tasty little beverage is perfect for those lingering Arizona summer days (and nights of course)! Brewed with a delicate blend of pale malts and a kiss of oats help give this beer a soft golden hue. The aroma is a blend of ripe mango, subtle pine and a subtle note of fresh blueberries from the Mosaic hops! The first sip of this crusha is crisp yet not truly bitter. The brightness transitions quickly to fresh fruit notes and then softly fades to the back of your palate with a pillowy mouthfeel that is gentle yet begging you to take another sip! Cheers!
4.8% ABV 10 IBU
Autumn Oak Imperial Nut Brown
Brewed with Muscovado Sugar and aged on American Oak. This is a very bold, yet surprisingly dry nut brown. Aroma of toasted hazelnuts and cocoa up front with the slightest hint of vanilla and caramel from the Oak - a tribute to the White Oaks of AZ and the Autumn Season.
8.0% ABV 25 IBU
