TITW-Chocolate Chipotle Stout

Barrel aging is as much art as it is science, and oftentimes the resulting beers are much more than simply the sum of their parts. As our chocolate Chipotle Stout matured in freshly emptied Kentucky bourbon barrels, the heat from the Chipotle peppers mellowed and the chocolate notes intensified. After aging for nearly two years, we decided this beer was perfect. Velvety smooth notes of bittersweet chocolate and vanilla from the oak are followed by a robust earthiness from the peppers and a long, rich finish.

Zappa Wild Stache IPA

Musical legend Frank Zappa once uttered the words, “You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer.”  When Todd Bates cultivated a wild hop growing in the New Mexico, as untamed as Zappa’s musical leanings, we joined forces.  With the blessing of the Zappa family, we brewed a beer as wild and crazy as Zappa himself. 

Hazy Little Thing

We’re constantly brewing new IPAs, looking for bold hop flavor. With this beer, our brewers thought it was so good that we decided to serve it straight from the tanks—unfiltered, unprocessed, and raw—to let all the fruit-forward hop flavors shine. The result is a hazy beer with modest bitterness and intense hop character.

Hop Bullet Double IPA

Hop Bullet Double IPA features a new technique: we’re hitting the beer with a double-barreled blast of Magnum hops and lupulin dust—the source of hop flavor and aroma—right into the fermenter for a ballistic burst of aggressive hop character.

Sierraveza

Inspired by the classic cervezas served ice-cold by the beach, we created our own take on the easy-drinking lager. Light and crisp, this beer has a balanced malt flavor with a hint of floral hops for an incredibly drinkable beer that will have you calling for another round.

Otra Vez Gose with Lime and Agave

This gose-style ale is brewed with lime and agave to give it a sweet-tart flavor, reminiscent of the classic margarita cocktail. It starts with a bright citrus aroma that fades into a semi-sweet malt flavor and finishes with the signature gose tartness, perfect for the warm summer days ahead.
